Columbus St. Francis DeSales RB Warren Ball committed to OSU today. It was the first day juniors could receive offers in writing and Ball wasted no time telling Jim Tressel he wanted in. This is a huge get for the Bucks as Ball, at 6-1/200, is a big, physical runner who has a non-stop motor and has the passion to play for Ohio State. This is the type of kid you want on your team and he will add even more depth at RB next year behind Herron, Berry, Hall, Hyde, and Smith.
I'm really excited to have this kid in the fold, as he could be the #1 player in Ohio when it's all said and done. The 2012 Ohio HS football class is unreal and the staff is already off to a great start with Ball and Perry. Next up we need to concentrate on getting the guys in the trenches, as well as some of the slick wide outs and d-backs. Out of state talent is on the back burner for the junior class.
