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 by Twitter at @bbbournival, e-mail at brad.bournival.espn@gmail.com or by posting a question in the Horseshoe Pit forum.

@TravisRockhold: Does Ohio State have a realistic chance of flipping Kenny Lacy? Is this a backup if they can’t flip David Dawson?

BN: There is a slim chance of flipping Lacy. A source very close to the situation in Phoenix said Lacy is taking his time and going on visits to see whether the Bruins are still No. 1. Lacy went on Twitter Friday morning and said “I am a man of my word, it's #bruinnation #NewBreed.” He canceled a visit to Michigan this weekend, but has a visit lined up in January with the Buckeyes. While I still think Dawson is the first choice, Lacy is no slouch at all as an offensive tackle.
