WATCH: Ohio State's top recruit, 5-star WR says he's still committed to Buckeyes
One of the truly remarkable aspects of the Zach Smith/Urban Meyer saga that has escalated in Columbus is how the 2019 recruiting class has stayed intact. With such uncertainty swirling around the program, it would be easy for a bunch of teenagers to reevaluate their decision.
Most of the recruits in the class have stayed committed to the program, including Ohio State’s top recruit, Garrett Wilson.
Wilson recently spoke with TMZ Sports regarding his commitment to the Buckeyes and whether or not he still planned to be in Columbus next fall. The talented 5-star receiver isn’t wavering from his decision, despite the turmoil.
“Nothing has really changed as far as my end,” Wilson said. “I still see myself there and believe in all the coaches and believe in what they’ve got going on there.”
Wilson also stated that when he heard Meyer would be reinstated as Ohio State’s head coach, he felt comfortable in confirming his commitment.
“I wanted to let it all play out and now that it’s all played out and I’m going to have my coach back, I feel comfortable with everything.
The No. 2 wide receiver in the 2019 recruiting class, Wilson is the top prospect committed to the Buckeyes. The Austin, Texas native is also ranked as the No. 14 player in the country, according to 247Sports.
At the conclusion of the interview, Wilson said he’s “100 percent Ohio State.”
