It may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, but Frank Epitropoulos made it official today, pledging his commitment to Ohio State. Frank, an Upper Arlington athlete who plays wide receiver, safety, and punts for the Golden Bears, is the son of two OSU alumni, and both his father and uncle played football for the Buckeyes.
At 6-3/195, Epitropoulos has great size and runs a sub-4.5 40-yard dash to make him one of the top players in the state of Ohio. He was recruited as a wide reciver by the Buckeyes and will likely start his career there, although he could end up competing for the punter position down the road as well. He chose Ohio State over his other three other finalists in Wisconsin, Michigan State, and Stanford. Epitropoulos becomes the sixth commitment for the class of 2012, and will join Warren Ball, Brionte Dunn, Kyle Kalis, Josh Perry, and Jacoby Boren when they sign next February.
