Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and defensive line coach Larry Johnson were at 4-star defensive line recruit Tommy Togiai’s house for a visit on Tuesday.

Togiai gave them some good news, and thanks to a family member, fans have a look at a moment they don’t often get to see. Togiai told the coaches he was committing to Ohio State, and their reaction was more intense than you’re probably expecting.

Tommy has made his decision❤️🏈❤️🏈 urban said he's never seen coach j move like that before 😂😂😂

Johnson reacted by leaping onto Togiai and engulfing him in a hug, while Meyer joined in before giving a fist bump. It’s an emotional scene, and it’s not hard to figure why. The two coaches traveled from Columbus to Idaho to visit one of their top remaining prospects, and they’re going home knowing they have a 290-pound, 6-foot-3 player to eventually help replace some stars from this season’s team.

Landing Togiai wasn’t a sure thing for Ohio State. Washington was a contender for his services, as was Oregon and USC. But Johnson, one of the nation’s most effective recruiters, got to celebrate another win in the end.
