Ohio State outlook: The top 5 OTs of 2014
By Brad Bournival
As the 2014 recruiting class comes more and more into focus following what was yet another strong national signing day for Urban Meyer, BuckeyeNation will take a position-by-position look at the juniors.
We’re going to start with the biggest position of need and move forward. That means today it’s the offensive line, where Ohio State has already picked up commitments from Marcelys Jones (Cleveland/Glenville) and Kyle Trout (Lancaster, Ohio/Lancaster).
Here are the top five offensive tackles not committed somewhere else and with an offer from the Buckeyes. As expected, all five are ESPN Watch List standouts.
Outlook: On Jones’ latest trip to Columbus he got a chance to go behind-the-scenes and talk things non-football related. No bad reports came back, which was a plus for Ohio State in regards to the 6-5, 285-pound prospect.
