With National Signing Day on the horizon I figured this would be a good time to catch up on the players who signed in previous classes. Today we look at what happened to the players who signed in 2008.
Below you will find the 18 players who signed with Ohio State in February 2008 and their vitals coming out of high school. You will also see where they ranked with Rivals and ESPN.
It's hard to believe this moment happened six years ago.
