In the short time Urban Meyer has been head coach of The Ohio State University, his first full recruiting class ('13) has been one for the ages. From the get-go, it started out with high level nationally ranked players from Ohio (Marshall, Burrows); followed by high level OOS players in Eli Apple, Joey Bosa, J.T. Barrett; and concluded with receiving commitments from the likes of Vonn Bell, Tre Johnson, Mike Mitchell, and Dontre Wilson. I'd be hard pressed to find a better OSU recruiting class in the last 15 years.
That said, I feel Joey Bosa might be the biggest prize of the class, at least from an out of state perspective. Case in point:
He comes from St. Thomas Aquinas (FL), one of a handful of elite programs in the entire country.
His measurables are as good as it gets for a DE in HS. 6-5, 270 with a strong cut body.
According to his video he thouroughly mauled and manhandled some seriously high level competition in H.S.
Has strong family ties to Ohio.
He handled the Charles Eric Waugh situation the right way by stating: 'I'm not going to let some weirdo define OSU to me."
Called ichigan 'That team up north' correctly throughout his H.S. carerar.
Insane speed and athleticism for his size and can continue to grow. Plus a nasty disposition.
Very high profile recruit from SEC country with offers from Bama, LSU, Florida, South Carolina, and many others.
