Before they team up next fall for Ohio State’s 2020 season, four of the eight commitments from the Buckeyes’ current recruiting class are slated to cap their high school careers together.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba (6-1, 188) became the latest OSU pledge to declare his all-star decision, announcing Wednesday night in favor of next year’s All-American Bowl.

With the choice, the four-star wide receiver from Rockwall, Texas, joins three familiar faces.

He follows Cincinnati St. Xavier five-star offensive tackle Paris Johnson (6-7 1/2, 295), Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic four-star wide receiver Gee Scott (6-3, 211) and Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph Regional four-star offensive guard/center Luke Wypler (6-3 1/2, 285) as OSU’s fourth commit set to play in the annual all-star game.

The All-American Bowl kicks off Jan. 4 at noon ET on NBC from the Alamodome in San Antonio.
