It turns out that 2020 four-star commit Jaxon Smith-Njigba also had a performance to remember.Justin Fields quickly turned into the biggest star on campus with his impressive debut for Ohio State. The former Georgia quarterback had five total touchdowns in Week 1.While the topic of conversation in Columbus surrounded Fields, a future member of the Buckeyes also performed well in his season opener.Smith-Njigba had 13 receptions for 311 yards and three touchdowns in his season opener for Rockwall High School. It’s an absurd stat line for any player at any level. Throughout the game it was clear that Smith-Njigba could just blow past the secondary with ease.Check out the highlights:Ohio State’s Class of 2020 is off the charts and one of its top commits @jaxon_smith1 put on a show in Rockwall’s (TX) season opener.13 receptions. 311 yards. 3 touchdowns.

It’s very possible that Smith-Njigba continues that trend with the program.He won’t be the only playmaker committing to the Buckeyes for next season. Five-star wide receiver Julian Fleming should make an immediate impact for the team.Following this weekend, fans have to be confident in Ryan Day’s ability to coach his current core at Ohio State and recruit future stars in the process.last_img
