Ohio State landed its second verbal commitment in as many days Wednesday evening when Duane Washington pledged for the class of 2018. Much like the day before, when Jaedon LeDee joined the class, the decision made a splash on Twitter.
It started with Washington himself, who made the announcement with a video he posted.

Then, a short while later, Washington posted a photo.
