It comes as no surprise with his brother Joey already in Columbus, but five-star St. Thomas Aquinas senior defensive end Nick Bosa made the announcement on Thursday that many have been expecting for some time now.
Bosa committed to Ohio State with a tweet that showed Joey putting an Ohio State helmet on Nick's head with the text "Hand down the legacy" attached to it.

Bosa chose the national champions over virtually every other school in the nation as anyone would gladly take the five-star 6-4, 265-pound prospect. He took a trip to Florida over the past weekend, and multiple reports over the last two months stated he was nearing a decision.
"Along with being an extraordinary athlete, team leader and positive role model, Nick Bosa is also an exceptional scholar athlete (4.0 GPA)," St. Thomas Aquinas coach Roger Harriott says. "The entire STA Raider Nation is proud of him, and we support his decision to be a Buckeye."
Here is an interview Bosa did with the Miami Herald in May at St. Thomas Aquinas' spring game.
And below are his junior season highlights.
