A second member of Collins Hill's football team made a college commitment on Sunday.

Wide receiver Justin Wyatt Tweeted that he committed to Ohio University.

"Me and The Lord have a been talking about this since May. I'm going to take my talents to Ohio & become a Bobcat," Wyatt said.

Collins Hill head coach Kevin Reach confirmed the commitment on Tuesday.

"I think what they do on offense, he fits their scheme very well," Reach said. "They want him as a slot receiver."

Wyatt chose Ohio over offers from Cincinnati, Troy and Buffalo. The Bobcats gained national attention when they defeated Penn State 24-14 in the season opener. Ohio plays in the Mid-American Conference and played for the conference championship last season.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Wyatt is one of the county's top receivers this season, catching 20 passes for 268 yards and two touchdowns.

"He's getting better every year," Reach said. "He's making big plays and has good football instincts."

Eagles quarterback Brett Sheehan committed to Florida International during the summer.
