    Tyler Friday: “For Ohio State, Coach [Larry] Johnson and I think Coach [Greg] Schiano is also coming to see me on Friday,” Friday told Friedman. “Hopefully it’ll be an atmosphere where we can just talk and discuss where we are with the process. I have a really great relationship with them. I feel really comfortable with the coaches and we talk pretty much every day. Ohio State has a lot of familiar faces there. I took two visits there so I have a good relationship with them. I’ve seen a lot of their commits and I feel like it will be a great class. We could do something very special and build our own legacy at the school if I do end up going there.”

    He has delayed his announcement. Most speculating that it has to do with Schinao most likely taking an NFL DC job. Bummer! But hopefully it still works out in our favor.

    Johnson's not going anywhere though, that should be a selling point

    A MATTER OF WHEN, NOT IF
    Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson, meanwhile, headed to New Jersey to meet with four-star defensive end Tyler Friday.

    The 6-foot-3, 263-pound Friday was widely expected to make a decision by the end of the week, but sources told Eleven Warriors early that morning he will likely hold off until closer to National Signing Day. All signs still point toward the Buckeyes being his ultimate destination, but Alabama and Michigan also stopped by Don Bosco Prep this weekend and continue to push for his pledge in the coming weeks.

    Again, I placed my 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Ohio State last week, and that's where it will remain through Feb. 7 — or until a final decision is announced.

    He's long been linked to Michigan, but the opportunity to learn from defensive line coach Larry Johnson and his relationship with defensive coordinator Greg Schiano has paid dividends for the Buckeyes as of late.

    Following his official visit in November, I briefly picked Ohio State as Friday's ultimate destination. But when things shifted back in the Buckeyes' favor for the aforementioned Smith and four-star Jayson Oweh, I admittedly jumped back to Michigan.

    Both Smith and Oweh were higher on the priority chart, and the program was in wait-and-see mode with Friday they got things sorted out. With the latter choosing Penn State during the Under Armour All-America Game last week, Ohio State has gone all out in its pursuit of Friday since.

    Meanwhile, this will be a devastating miss for the Wolverines, as head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff believed their connections in New Jersey had Friday's recruitment wrapped up a long time ago.
