    Chris Henry Jr. was nearing the end of his initial interview with a small handful of reporters gathered outside of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Friday when an observing family member chimed in.

    The family member hinted that Henry Jr. had some news to share that had yet to be revealed following his visit to Columbus for Ohio State's SummerFest event, and that he couldn't tell it for him.

    With a wry smile, Henry Jr. caved and let the cat out of the bag: The talented wideout had just committed to Ohio State, becoming the Buckeyes' first commitment of the 2026 class. Following his announcement, a small cry of cheers broke out from those that visited OSU with Henry Jr., including former Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones.

    “It just felt like a great day,” Henry Jr. told reporters after revealing the news. “To be here, it just made it feel (right). Brought my uncle to see, because he was the one telling me to slow down. I was ready. When I talked to Coach Day, it was like no point in waiting anymore. … It’s just hard to turn down. It’s perfect for me and it fits me.

    “The atmosphere. It’s the coaches, really. That’s really what it was, the coaches,“ Henry said of why he chose Ohio State over other top programs. “I love it here. I love the energy and the atmosphere. I love everything about it. They make me feel like a priority every time I talk to them. And so that just makes me feel special.”

    Henry Jr. previously visited Ohio State for a camp in June and was one of the most impressive players to work out for the Buckeyes during the month. The Ohio prospect said he's eager to become a leader in the 2026 class and help recruit future prospects to Columbus going forward.

    "It's an amazing feeling to have a school like this have me as their priority," Henry Jr. said.

    On Wednesday, 247Sports unveiled its first rankings for the class of 2026, as 100 prospects from the cycle were ranked.

    It’ll come as no surprise to those that have seen him play, but Ohio State wide receiver commit Chris Henry Jr. is ranked as a top-10 overall prospect nationally and the top wide receiver in the 2026 class. With Henry Jr. earning the No. 1 wide receiver ranking, the Buckeyes now have the top-ranked wideouts in both the 2024 (Jeremiah Smith) and 2026 classes.

    CHRIS HENRY JR. LEADS WITHROW TO 42-0 SEASON-OPENING WIN
    Though most of the Buckeyes’ in-state commitments open their seasons over the next few days, Ohio State 2026 wide receiver commit Chris Henry Jr. kicked off his 2023 campaign on Thursday evening. Considered the No. 1 wide receiver in the country in the 2026 cycle by 247Sports’ composite rankings, Henry Jr. was the focus of Walnut Hills’ defense and saw double-teams for a good portion of the evening.

    It didn’t matter too much, as Henry Jr. still tallied more than 80 yards on offense and caught a touchdown en route to a 42-0 victory.

    Henry Jr. and Withrow next face Springboro on the road on Aug. 25.
