Today marks the beginning of summer term, which means 19 members from Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class will join their five comrades that enrolled early. For fans, this means the all important jersey numbers of the new class is starting to emerge.

The numbers for the five early enrollees – Eli Apple (13), Cam Burrows (16), J.T. Barrett (16), Tyquan Lewis (59) and Tracy Sprinkle (93) – have been known for months as the players participated in spring camp and suited up for Ohio State's spring game in Cincinnati. The numbers for the remainder of the class, however, is only partly known at this time.

Using information gleaned from Twitter and other sources, we're able to determine the numbers of all but five members of this class at this time.  We know Vonn Bell will wear No. 7, Joey Bosa will rock No. 97, Ezeikiel Elliott will sport No. 15, Jalin Marshall will wear No. 17 and Dontre Wilson will don the coveted No. 1, but we're not so sure about guys like James Clark, Trey Johnson, Evan Lisle, Donovan Munger and Corey Smith.

When we have that information, which should be finalized shortly, we'll be sure to update the table on this page, so you have it and can sound like a boss when making observations during the opener.
