The Buckeyes received a verbal commitment from offensive lineman Chris Carter of Cleveland's John F. Kennedy High. Carter becomes the 3rd commitment for the 2011 class and will arrive in Columbus with a whole list of chores for Duron to complete.
Carter made an unofficial visit to the Columbus campus today. He received a scholarship offer and gave the school his commitment during a phone call the minute he got home.
"I left my house about 9 this morning and got home about 3:30 this afternoon," he said. "I knew I wanted to go there from the beginning, so why wait?"
Carter, a 6-4, 315-pound tackle/guard, blocked at a 91 percent efficiency this past season for the Eagles with 16 pancake blocks. He also received offers from Akron, North Carolina State, Miami (Ohio) and Toledo.
