Found November 11, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
“At 10-0 — now one of just four unbeaten teams in the nation after losses Saturday by Alabama and Louisville — with 17 oral commitments and a 2013 class currently ranked No. 6 in the nation by ESPN and No. 7 by Rivals, it’s not a bad time to be selling the Buckeyes. Or as Meyer said on his radio show last week, ‘Ohio State is kind of hot right now.’” “Ohio State currently has 76 active scholarship players, with 13 seniors leaving after the season. With an 82-scholarship limit because of NCAA sanctions, that immediately means 19 slots will be open. But with the potential loss of junior Johnathan Hankins to the NFL, and the possibility of a few transfers, having more like 21, 22 or 23 scholarships to give isn’t hard to imagine. And while Ohio State is spreading its message around the country after a year of transition, the Buckeyes are still playing to the interested parties at home as well. Of the 17 oral commitments, seven are from Ohio.” [Lesmerises/Cleveland.com]
