It’s time to dip into the BuckeyeNation recruiting mailbag and answer some of your questions. We’ll keep it at five a week to give everyone a shot. We encourage you to send your questions on Twitter at @bbbournival, email at brad.bournival.espn@gmail.com or by posting a question in the Horseshoe Pit forum.

@JohnFanta13: In your estimation, how much are schools looking at the Associated Press’ all-state teams? Can honors like those get the Buckeyes to look further into a player?

BN: While all-state honors can garner attention, for the most part anyone Ohio State or other BCS-conference schools are looking at is of that caliber or higher. The underlying factor is also the politics involved in picking an all-state team. While those honors are certainly deserved in just about any case, it might not be a determining factor for colleges looking to fill a certain spot.
