PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
O'Connor accepted the offer shortly after he left the campus, look for the gray box on O'Connor :)
Your intel is corroborated by Rivals. Excellent news.

Scout is saying the same thing. That was a great pickup. Solid kid who REALLY wants to be a buckeye.
We jumped up to #3 on rivals, ahead of scUM. Love the news.
Loving it! O-H
So Dodson, Williams, Reeves, Neal puts us at 84 right?
O'Connor was told by Ohio State coaches that he will likely play either center or guard for the Buckeyes.
I see where Adolphus Washington go bumped up to a 5 star also.
Also per Rivals, Ohio State's average "star rating" is equal to Texas with a 3.62 and just .01 points behind Bama. I imagine if the final commits are nailed down this class could go up to 1 or 2.
It looks like O'Connor has the frame to play OG/C at 300+ lbs without carrying any sloppy weight and he's supposedly has a nice mean streak, which is essential inside.
Albert, and if two OTs come through, this class might go down as one of the better classes of linemen - OL & DL - in cfb in recent years (keeping in mind that recruiting rankings are only a rough guide at best).

Yeah and to think Urban didn't recruit a majority of it. :S The next few years will be scary.
I'm not too familiar with O'Connor and Decker. I know they play different spots on the line, but who would you say is the better pick-up of the two?
Feels like we won something.. almost forgot last season was a bad one
#1 recruiting class would be nice to look at till the new season starts. :)
O H I O is the Buckeye State
BUCKEYE'S THE SACRED BROTHERHOOD !!
DGRUBBS, I might say Decker was a "better" pickup simply because he addresses our need at O Tackle, but I think both kids will be great linemen for us.
Watched O'Conner's highlights looks impressive
