With the new early signing period approaching Dec. 20, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer secured commitments from two more prospects on a busy Tuesday night.
Tommy Togiai, a defensive tackle from Pocatello, Idaho, and Kamryn Babb, a receiver from St. Louis, announced on Twitter that they have chosen Ohio State.
Togiai, 6 feet 3 and 290 pounds, made public his choice after an in-home visit from Meyer and defensive line coach Larry Johnson. He tweeted, “Committed Go Buckeyes!!!” and included photos of him with both coaches.
Shortly after, Johnson posted on Twitter, “Boooom!!!! Can’t wait to coach this playmaker! Welcome to the family!”
The Buckeyes needed help on the defensive line after Brenton Cox of Stockbridge, Georgia, decommitted last week. Togiai, out of Highland High School, is a four-star prospect considered the ninth-best defensive tackle prospect nationally in composite recruiting rankings put together by 247Sports. He was also considering Washington.
Babb, 6-1 and 190 pounds, is the 12th overall prospect at receiver in 247Sports’ composite rankings, and he picked Ohio State over Missouri, among others.
Babb, from Christian Brothers High School, wrote on Twitter, “Never would’ve thought I’d be in the position I’m in today, anything is possible with God. All praise to the Lord above.”
Togiai and Babb give Ohio State 21 commitments in the class.
