BuckeyeNation Week in Review
To get more moments, Ohio State coaches have a special jacket for the recruiting trail, one you can't find in stores.
Bradley Roby is being recognized as one of the top cornerbacks in the country.
Ohio State has two of the top 12 underclassmen in the country, according to ESPN Insiders.
The Buckeyes picked up a commitment from OL Donovan Munger of Shaker Heights, Ohio.
The next player to commit might be junior college linebacker Tommy Sanders.
Or it could be a 2014 player, such as athlete Lonnie Johnson from Gary, Ind.
A key recruit for 2013, linebacker Mike Mitchell, enjoyed his visit.
Ohio State would love to have the top LBs in the country in 2014 put in a bow for a special package.
A trio from Detroit has their sights set on becoming a package deal as well.
Brad Bournival dips into the mailbag on Trey Johnson, Mitchell, James Quick and others.
The Buckeyes remain in the final three for top safety Vonn Bell, who would catapult a great class of defensive backs into another level.
Ohio State's committed players are more than willing to help recruit.
Ohio State hasn't offered QB Will Ulmer, but they see some similarities in his game with Braxton Miller.
2014 QB Drew Barker, who is very interested in Ohio State, is getting lots of interest.
A New Jersey junior was surprised to see Urban Meyer in his high school's hallway.
Recruiting will always be an inexact science, however. Adam Rittenberg looked at the All-Big Ten offense and how they were rated as recruits.
Maurice Clarett is trying to make a comeback in life.
And would the Buckeyes be in the Rose Bowl, or better, if they were eligible? Brian Bennett and Adam Rittenberg have a difference of opinion.
