Blue-chip WR Kojo Antwi commits to Ohio State

Wide receiver Kojo Antwi committed Monday to Ohio State, the latest addition to an already star-studded Class of 2022.

Antwi, who was born in Ghana and now lives in Suwanee, Ga., announced his commitment on Twitter in a video.

A four-star prospect, he is ranked by the 247Sports composite as the No. 16 wide receiver in the nation. In the 2022 class, he joins five-star wideout Caleb Burton (Austin, Texas) and fellow four-stars Kaleb Brown (Chicago) and Kyion Grayes (Chandler, Ariz.)

The Buckeyes’ 2022 class is ranked No. 1 in the nation by 247Sports and is headlined by the nation’s No. 1 player, quarterback Quinn Ewers of Southlake, Texas, who will have plenty of targets.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Antwi chose Ohio State over Georgia, Texas A&M and Southern Cal, just a few of the numerous Power Five schools to make a scholarship offer.

Antwi’s commitment was the second significant one on consecutive days for the Buckeyes. On Sunday, defensive lineman J.T. Tuimoloau of Sammamish, Wash., committed to the Class of 2021 and is expected on campus this week. The five-star recruit, a consensus Top 10 prospect, was the highest-ranked player who hadn’t chosen a school for this fall.

Five-star CB Will Johnson commits to Michigan

Michigan landed the top-ranked player in the state in the Class of 2022 on Sunday with the commitment of five-star cornerback Will Johnson.

The 6-foot-3 Johnson, who attends Grosse Pointe South High School, is the No. 11 overall prospect in the nation, according to the 247Sports composite.

He announced his decision with a video posted to social media.

Johnson had offers from numerous Power Five programs and selected the Wolverines over rival Ohio State and Southern California.

His father, Deon Johnson, was a defensive back at Michigan in the 1991 and 1992 seasons.

Michigan is off to a good start in the 2022 recruiting cycle, holding the No. 10-ranked class so far, according to 247Sports.

Five-star OLB Mondon commits to Georgia

Five-star outside linebacker Smael Mondon committed to Georgia on Wednesday.

The nation’s No. 2 outside linebacker and No. 27 overall recruit according to the 247Sports composite, Mondon played at Paulding County High School in Dallas, Ga.

Mondon had offers from about three dozen Power Five programs and ultimately chose the Bulldogs over Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Florida.

The 6-foot-3 Mondon becomes Georgia’s third five-star recruit in the Class of 2021, joining tackle Amarius Mims (Cochran, Ga.) and quarterback Brock Vandagriff (Bogart, Ga.).

The class is now ranked No. 3 in the SEC — trailing Alabama and LSU — and No. 5 in the nation, per 247Sports.

LSU lands commitment from No. 2 safety prospect

LSU landed a commitment from another blue-chip safety prospect in the Class of 2021.

Derrick Davis Jr., ranked as the No. 2 safety and the No. 53 overall player in the class by the 247Sports composite, tweeted a photo apparently of himself in an LSU uniform Sunday with the comment, “#geauxtigers LETS GOOO.”


Last weekend, five-star recruit Sage Ryan, the nation’s No. 1 safety prospect, committed to coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers. Ryan attends local Lafayette Christian Academy.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Davis, from Monroeville, Pa., chose the Tigers over schools that included Southern California, Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia and in-state Penn State.

LSU now has 22 commits in its 2021 class, which ranks No. 3 in the nation, per 247Sports, trailing only Alabama and Ohio State.
