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 2007.
Below you will find the 15 players who signed with Ohio State in February 2007 and their vitals coming out of high school. You will also see where they ranked with Rivals and ESPN.
Although this was a small class, six players made impressionable contributions throughout their careers with Ohio State.
I had high expectations for this recruit. How would you label him? Did he meet your expectations? Was he a bust?
