Stars. What are they good for?

The 2012 recruiting class marches on.

The biggest news since our last update has been the bad vibes surrounding the strange saga of OH OL Kyle Kalis balanced out somewhat by the commitments of OH LB Luke Roberts and OH OL/DL Patrick Elflein.

Despite the commitments, the current feeling on the class is still slanting negative for various reasons.

First and most importantly, Ohio State still needs to add some offensive tackles to the roster… and soon, making the pain from the loss of Kalis even more acute.

Recruiting Update: 4/27/11

Written April 27th, 2011 by Jim

The 2011 class was well represented (L to R: Nick Vannett, Tony Underwood, Doran Grant, Kenny Hayes, Curtis Grant, Evan Spencer, Conner Crowell, Michael Bennett) at the spring game, but the 2012 class appears to be on hold. Here's hoping for some positive action during camps this summer.

With Ohio State’s NCAA hearing scheduled for August 12th, Buckeye fans are in for a long and uncertain summer. Barring any impact the negative press may have on recruiting, fans can at least hope for good news for the 2012 class in the coming weeks and months (Frank Epitropoulos’ commitment yesterday was a nice starter).

The news won’t really start picking up until camps this summer, but there have been several new offers since our last big board update.

In what is becoming a clear trend, the Buckeyes recently offered several additional prospects at receiver, and it is clear that the staff is planning on taking at least two players there this year.
