Ohio State has found its quarterback for the 2019 recruiting class.
Dwan Mathis, a four-star product from Oak Park, Mich., announced via Twitter on Sunday that he has flipped his commitment from Michigan State to Ohio State.

Mathis had been committed to Michigan State since September before taking a surprise visit to Ohio State this weekend for the program’s annual Friday Night Lights camp. He received an offer from OSU on May 3.
Landing Mathis, who also was an Iowa State pledge from February-June of last year, was critical for Ohio State. Before Mathis’ latest college decision, the Buckeyes had offered 14 signal callers from the 2019 cycle, 11 of whom committed elsewhere.
Two days after OSU offered, Mathis competed at The Opening Regional Canton on May 5. In an interview after the camp at Massillon (Ohio) Washington’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium, he explained how head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Ryan Day “were going to come harder than they ever did” as they reentered his recruitment.
Mathis, the No. 251 overall prospect and No. 9 pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports composite, is the 12th commitment for Ohio State’s 2019 haul.
