Ohio State's 2014 Dream Team: Defense
February, 13, 2013

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comVirginia prospect Da'Shawn Hand would be an ideal LEO for the Buckeyes, a DE/LB combo.With the 2014 recruiting cycle now in full swing, BuckeyeNation wondered what it would be like to create a dream team. Tuesday we looked at the offense, Wednesday we switch to the defensive side.
There are stipulations in this dream list of recruits for the 2014 class.
The team has to mirror that of the Buckeyes’ defense. That means there aren’t 11 middle linebackers or safeties on the squad, just one standout at each position.
To be fair, linemen could move inside if need be, and inside backers could move to an outside linebacker spot as well.
One other thing, if a player was committed -- be it to the Buckeyes or somewhere else -- he was disqualified. The individual also had to have an offer from Ohio State.
Here’s what we came up with. It’s a formidable list:
