It's not often Ryan Day and the Ohio State Buckeyes lose a commitment from one of their top recruits,

But here we are.

This Saturday, four-star cornerback Dijon Johnson announced that he is backing his commitment to the Buckeyes.

"First and foremost I want to thank the man above for keeping me in the position I am in today,

There is no Dijon Johnson without him," he said in a statement.

"Second, I want to thank everyone at Ohio State University for their time and effort in recruiting me.

I am grateful for the relationships I have built over the past year especially with Coach Alford,

Coach Walton and the players.

“Finally after long conversations with my family I have decided that it is best for me to quit Ohio State University and I will reopen my recruiting.

I look forward to the journey of finding my new home!"

Dijon Johnson is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive out of Florida.

Looks like he's already trending for the gators.

However, the state of Ohio shouldn't be too constrained here. Recruiting defensive backs has always been a force for the Buckeyes.
