    CINCINNATI SUMMIT COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL WIDE RECEIVER XAVIER JOHNSON
    The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Johnson was named Division V honorable mention after he racked up 2,274 all-purpose yards and 25 touchdowns for the Silver Knights last season, which includes four kick and three punt returns for scores. He turned down offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, North Dakota State and a handful of Mid-American Conference schools to walk-on at Ohio State.

    Johnson, who is considered a three-star prospect by 247Sports, is ranked ahead of other wide receivers who have signed with programs like Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

    XAVIER JOHNSON, WR
    Another walk-on who’s emerged as a key role player on special teams and a team leader, Johnson could also find himself in the conversation for captaincy. Mitchell, whose voice will surely hold weight in that conversation as a returning captain, named Johnson alongside Eichenberg and Babb as one of the Buckeyes who had stepped up most as leaders this spring.

    Like Stover, Johnson has taken a selfless approach to his Ohio State career, moving back and forth between various positions after turning down scholarship offers to walk on in Columbus. The fifth-year senior might still face an uphill climb to regular playing time in a loaded wide receiver room, but it shouldn’t come as a shock if his loyalty and dedication are rewarded with captaincy.

    C.J. Stroud: “Xavier Johnson is a dog ... That just shows how you hard of a worker he is ... He works really, really hard.”

    Xavier Johnson on following his touchdown with a kickoff return tackle: “I was in my position doing what I was coached to do.”
