Lisle is #5 for 2013

By Jeremy Birmingham on February 28, 2012 at 8:06p

Urban Meyer's 2013 recruiting class added its fifth member tonight, as Centerville OT Evan Lisle has committed to Ohio State per's recruiting guru Marc Givler.

Lisle is widely-regarded as the best offensive lineman in the state of Ohio and is a major commitment for the 2013 class. Once his long-awaited offer finally came through from Meyer last Wednesday it was widely assumed that his commitment would be imminent. Tonight, he ended the speculation and phoned his future head coach with the good news.

Lisle had scholarship offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Miami and numerous other schools who were interested in his services.

We'll catch up with #5 for 2013 soon and will have a full story posted here at

Congrats Evan; we can never have too many linemen (O or D). He looks like another great pickup for the Bucks; a future impact player!

what's up with Lovell Peterson ? Last I heard he had OSU and Bama on top ... it'd be great to add him, too

And now Jim Bollman would be done recruiting for 2013.

You mean Bollman would have recruited OLs in the first place?

ThirdLegLouie's picture

Lisle isn't a guard-- which probably means Bollman would have told him no need to come down for the spring game

Our class will be better than scUM's when it's all said and done. A mix of top Ohio talent and some studs from around the country.

Anyone know how his last name is pronounced?  Lyle?  Liz-le?

Welcome aboard the Buckeye Nation Evan - you are going to have a GREAT 4 years here at OSU!!!

I'm guessing Braxton has had the biggest grin on his face since Urban was hired and it just keeps getting bigger!!!

Nice. Looking forward to a solid OL class. It's gonna be weird having a viable, Big Ten caliber two deep across the OL. No more underperforming five stars backed up by freshmen with MAC offers and walk-ons.

It's nice to see us compete and win these recruits against the Alabamas, etc. of the world. Refreshing, seemed like we lost most of the time before Meyer.
