"State" To "State", 4-Star Quarterback Dwan Mathis Drops Spartans For Buckeyes
On Sunday afternoon, four star quarterback, Dwan Mathis, out of Oak Park High School in Michigan, decided that after his visit to Columbus, Ohio that he wanted to join Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Mathis had previously committed to the Michigan State Spartans but according to his father, Terence Mathis, the Spartans gave him permission to visit Ohio State. Ranked No. 251 in the class of 2019, the 6-foot-5 and 195 pound Mathis made the trip to Columbus with his family this past weekend and his father added that they were really impressed by Meyer and his staff. He noted that the history of dual-threat quarterbacks produced by the Buckeyes program was an area Dwan liked the most. "Coach Meyer has nine quarterbacks in the NFL who were all drafted in the first round." He went on to say that Dwan's decision had nothing to do with the Spartans doing anything wrong, but more that the development of dual-threat quarterbacks by Meyer and his staff and Dwan's desire to win is what led to his decision to switch.
