Buckeye recruiting heats up

With the addition of Glenville offensive lineman Bryant Browning, Jim Tressel is getting a late recruiting surge that is helping to round out an excellent recruiting class.

Rivals.com is very high on recent recruit Robert Rose:

Nobody had a better U.S. Army All-America Bowl than Rose, a fast-riser from Cleveland’s Glenville High School. Rose, a strong and stout 6-foot-4 and 255-pounder, couldn’t be blocked in the game and his development late in the season during the Ohio state playoffs and then in the all-star game has been amazing.

He went from a sure fire top 250 national prospect to quite possibly the No. 2 player in Ohio and a five-star candidate.

They are still targeting some excellent prospoects:

There is little doubt that OSU is in a great position to also land in-state stud Thaddeus Gibson after an official visit this weekend. The battle to land the four-star player from Euclid, Ohio, is down to OSU, Tennessee and Michigan, but most sources agree it’s a two-team race between the Bucks and Vols.

Then there is City College of San Francisco four-star linebacker Larry Grant, who had originally planned on signing with Florida at mid-term but a math class kept him from heading to Gainesville.

He’s now in the final process of evaluating his options and it appears to be down to Texas A&M and Ohio State for him.

Should be interesting.
