Buckeyes get great start on 2008 recruiting class

Ohio State has landed three top recruits for 2008.

The Ohio State football team has already picked up three commitments in the class of 2008, and at least one recruiting analyst ranks the trio with the best at their positions nationally among seniors-to-be.

Dublin Coffman tackle Mike Adams, Cincinnati LaSalle receiver DeVier Posey and Westerville Central punter-kicker Ben Buchanan have all accepted scholarships from the Buckeyes.

Duane Long of Bucknuts.com, who publishes the Ohio High scouting report, has the 6-foot-8, 300-pound Adams rated as the top player in the state.

“I’ve only seen one offensive lineman Orlando Pace better at the high school level in Ohio,” Long said. “He’s better than Korey Stringer and better than Alex Boone. He’s a special athlete.”
