Assessing the 2014 defensive backs
By Brad Bournival
After scoring the No. 1-ranked defensive backfield in the nation in 2013, the question becomes can Ohio State do it again?
While the Buckeyes missed out Wednesday on safety Quin Blanding (Virginia Beach, Va./Bayside), who chose Virginia over Ohio State, the team certainly isn’t backing down from adding to an already-solid unit.
The Buckeyes have offered 21 defensive backs from the class of 2014 -- 13 of them at the cornerback position -- and count 18 ESPN Watch List individuals among them. They received a huge commitment from Damon Webb (Detroit/Cass Tech) back on Jan. 13, but aren’t likely through adding one -- maybe two -- more names to the class.
