, some good news for the troubled program still reeling from Monday's resignation of head coach Jim Tressel.
Powell, 6-foot-3, 185-pounds, is ranked as a three-star prospect, and he committed to the Buckeyes over West Virginia, Michigan State and Syracuse.
"It has always been my dream to play for Ohio State, and today my dream came true," Powell stated from his high school.
Bedford head coach Sean Williams is quite high on his young star, saying "Tyvis is one of the best young men I've had the pleasure of coaching. I think he is EXACTLY what Ohio State needs right now, on and off the field."
