Everyone wearing the scarlet and gray was excited when four-star defensive tackle Tommy Togiai committed to Ohio State.

None were more excited than head coach Urban Meyer and defensive line coach Larry Johnson. And that joy sparked an unbelievable reaction.

Meyer and Johnson were both in Togiai’s home when he decided to commit to the Buckeyes. Both coaches leaped up immediately and Johnson nearly tackled Togiai with a huge hug.

It really was a remarkable reaction.


Johnson can be heard saying “I got him!” over and over again in the video. Meyer, who also went around for hugs, asked the defensive line coach if he was OK.

Togiai became the 21st member of Ohio State’s  top-ranked recruiting class and is considered to be one of the top interior defensive linemen in 2018. It’s easy to understand why the two guys nearly hit their heads on the ceiling.

There are a lot of great recruiting videos that make their way around social media, but this is certainly one of the best.
