World News – US – Jaylen Johnson set to join future Ohio State football teammates at Buckeye Bash


Jaylen Johnson is one of 13 players who will be in Columbus for Ohio State’s Buckeye Bash this weekend

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Usually these Saturday posts consist of watching a member of an Ohio State recruiting class and providing analysis on what the Buckeyes are getting

But as Cincinnati’s LaSalle High School entered halftime with a 42-0 lead over Stebbins in their OHSAA playoff game on Friday night, safety Jaylen Johnson couldn’t do much

The Lancers have won four state championships in the past decade, currently looking to repeat their 2019 title There is talent everywhere, and when the talent gap is as big as we have Seen on Friday you don’t need three star security which is the last line of defense to do a lot more than stay healthy for tougher games in November

“When we play a good team we step it up,” Johnson told Clevelandcom “This team was not a horrible team They lost two games It’s a good team We just have to keep preparing every week « 

The nation’s No. 394 and No. 25 Safety spent the second half applauding the second and third string units With the job done and La Salle moving forward, he could focus his attention on today’s festivities at the Buckeye Bash with other members of what is currently the No. 2 recruiting class

He is one of 12 class 2021 engagements set to be in Columbus this weekend.The storms that swept through Ohio on Friday night postponed games from Friday to Saturday enough to prevent some players from attending, but Johnson was glad he didn’t have to deal with this

« I’m not going to lie I told my coach if we had played [Saturday] it probably would have been a no-show for No 7, » Johnson said jokingly « I have to go to the Buckeye Bash with my boys, but I’m glad [Stebbins] stayed and played us Now I get my hair cut in the morning and go to Columbus to see my boys and have a good day « 

Johnson weighs 6ft 1in and 200lbs with a stockier build than the typical defensive back Kerry Coombs is looking for This is why many think he could be a linebacker But Coombs’ return opens the door to defense from Ohio State to be more than the base Cover 3 and Cover 1 look of 2019 When you look at Johnson you can think of Josh Proctor, who was looking for a safe starting position that Marcus Hooker ultimately won.

Proctor is a playmaker, as he showed in flash last season Johnson, wherever he plays, is too

« [Coombs] told me to watch Josh Proctor, » said Johnson « He said that was the position Pete Werner played last season, but this season it will be a safety A safety box that can play inside and outside the box « 

The Lancers used him as high security, but also moved him inside the box and to the line of scrimmage when it was clear Stebbins didn’t have a vertical pass threat Each game offers him a different offensive pattern, but he was able to decipher the challenge

“The triangle,” Johnson said “I read the tackle, the quarterback, the running back and they tell me what I’m doing”

As he continues to thrive on the pitch this season – and potentially in the future – he can focus on his fellow teammates for the weekend. He still hopes that his best friend and teammate, Devonta Smith – an OSU engagement that has turned into an Alabama engagement – can be convinced to return to OSU

“I’m doing my best to get him back because I want to play with my best friend,” Johnson said “Hope I can get him back, but otherwise Nick Saban has a dog that goes down to Alabama Devonta, hope you hear that because you are coming home with us «
