CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy senior quarterback Danny Vanatsky has committed to Ohio State as a preferred walk-on .

“I am honored by the opportunity that the coaching staff has presented and am excited to get to work,” Vanatsky tweeted .

Ohio State entered the picture late in the recruiting process, according to CHCA coach Mark Mueller.

"It's a great academic school, close to home and will force him to grow up as a quarterback," Mueller told WCPO Friday morning.

Vanatsky was 15 of 18 passing for 327 yards and three touchdowns against Norwood Oct. 20. He was 22 of 25 passing for 299 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles’ playoff win over Greeneview Nov. 3.
