Ohio State received a commitment from the No. 2 recruit in Ohio on Saturday when defensive tackle Darrion Henry announced his intention to sign with the Buckeyes.
Henry plays alongside five-star offensive tackle and Ohio State commit Paris Johnson at Princeton High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, which means the Buckeyes have secured the top two in-state players of the 2020 class.

After holding commitments from two defensive prospects prior to June 21, the Buckeyes have secured verbal pledges from three four-star defenders in the eight days since. Four-star corner Clark Phillips and four-star linebacker Cody Simon join Henry in this regard.
Standing at 6-foot-4, 279 pounds, Henry is a four-star prospect recruited by associate head coach and defensive line coach Larry Johnson, who has coached five All-Americans on the defensive line in his tenure with the Buckeyes.
Henry is the No. 11 defensive tackle in the country per 247Sports, and the No. 121 overall prospect in his class.
Henry previously visited LSU in May and Tennessee just a week before his official Ohio State visit on June 21.
