This is what I picked up from the Orlando Sentinal:
Punters do not normally dominate headlines on National Signing Day, but Boone’s Johnny Townsend is the exception.
Townsend, one of the top punters in the country, was expected to sign with Ohio State today but an unspecified "family matter" has put his signing of the National Letter of Intent on hold.
Townsend's father, Clay Townsend, however, said speculation about any scholarship offer being pulled was "completely false."
Clay Townsend said: "Coach Meyer has not pulled anything and everything regarding the scholarship offer remains intact. We just have a family matter that has required extra consideration and he has not signed, but the status of his scholarship is the same."
A noon press conference was called at Boone today where Townsend was expected to announce his decision. Instead, he made a statement asking for patience and privacy as he still sorted things out. This came after his initial signing was delayed in the morning.
Townsend is expected to make a decision at 4 p.m.
Boone athletic director Doug Patterson said the situation is being discussed between the school and the Townsend family.
"Right now it's a personal matter between the Townsends and Ohio State and they are working as fast as they can to make sure that any concerns they have is taken care of," Patterson said."They really want to hold off on a binding commitment until they feel 100 percent comfortable with everything from the University."
"There is only one place in the world where you can become a Buckeye, are you ready to be a Buckeye...."
