On Sept. 23, 2017, Class of 2019 4-star quarterback Dwan Mathis committed to Michigan State over schools such as Ohio State, Iowa State and Oregon, among others. However, nine months after his commitment to the Spartans, Mathis has had a change of heart.
Mathis announced on Sunday evening that he has not only de-committed from Michigan State, but also has committed to Ohio State. With Mathis flipping from the Spartans to the Buckeyes, Ohio State has found its 2019 quarterback.
Mathis — a 6-foot-5, 195-pound pro-style quarterback from Oak Park (Mich.) High School — broke the news on Twitter. Here is his tweet:

“I would like to thank MSU for the many opportunities they have given me to play at their university. The decision weighed heavy on my heart. I would like to announce that I am officially a Buckeye!”
Mathis is the No. 6-ranked prospect from Michigan in the Class of 2019, the No. 9-ranked pro-style quarterback and the No. 251-ranked overall recruit, according to 247Sports 2019 composite rankings.
With Mathis flipping to Ohio State, the Buckeyes’ Class of 2019 still ranks No. 1 in the Big Ten and No. 9 in the nation.
