Ohio State wanted to make a big splash with its most recent commitment in the class of 2013 and the Buckeyes did just that when they landed offensive tackle Tim Gardner (Indianapolis/Lawrence Central).

The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Gardner was at the Friday Night Lights camp in Columbus on Friday night and told Urban Meyer and his staff that he wanted to be a Buckeye.

“Coach [Kerry] Coombs, who recruits this area for Ohio State, called me this morning and told me Tim committed,” Lawrence Central coach Jayson West confirmed.
