Former Jeannette standout Anthony Johnson, who helped the Jayhawks win WPIAL and PIAA football titles in 2017, committed Thursday to Bowling Green.
Johnson announced his decision on Twitter.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound senior transferred in July to Cleveland Heights High School in Ohio. The defensive end chose the Mid-American Conference school from a list that included more than a dozen Division I offers, with Akron, Ball State, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Syracuse and Toledo among them.
Johnson was rated as a three-star recruit by 247Sports.com, which ranked him as the 66th-best recruit overall in Ohio.
He took up football only as a junior and led Jeannette with 134 tackles and 12 sacks.
