The influence of Dijon Johnson on the recruitment class of the state of Ohio in 2023

The Ohio state secured a commitment this afternoon from one of the country’s most underrated defenders, when four-star defender Tampa (Fla.) Wharton Dijon Johnson Buckeyes promised his services.

6-foot-1 and 190-pound Johnson won the second team’s national honor as a junior after catching six passes and returning four of them to touchdowns, leading the Wildcats to the final of the 3rd Region Class 7A last fall.

Johnson is a big, physical defender, but he also has the necessary speed and change of direction to play the position. He is very instinctive, but will have to work on his man-to-man technique after relying on his size and acceleration to cover less skilled wide-ranging high school receivers.
