Buckeye Seedlings

Most of the nation's high school football seasons have come to an end, except for Pennsylvania, who finally ends their two month playoff session this weekend. Since the last installment of Buckeye Seedlings, Tressel has continued to build upon his stellar recruiting group by landing Willie Mobley of Eden Prairie, MN. After leading his team to the 5A state championship, Mobley squashed Tim Brewster's dream of turning him into a tight end and gave the Vest his 15th verbal commitment.

Ohio State's main remaining target, Terrelle Pryor is guiding his team to the state title game this weekend, after a 41-21 victory last week. Pryor was his usual self, running for 158 yards, passing for 142 and returning an interception for a 100 yard TD. He became the first player in Western Pennsylvania history to run and pass for over 4,000 career yards, those are some sick numbers my friends and if Tressel has this conversation with him, I am going to look into a PSL at the BCS title games.

This past weekend, Ohio State hosted another group of targets/commits, including a couple of potential steals. Josh Jenkins is currently a soft verbal to West Virginia and is rated as one of the top linemen nationally. Jenkins is fresh off his second consecutive West Virginia state title and appreciated the chance to check out Cbus's ladies at the Lil' Wayne concert.

Another potential theft is Keith Wells, a defensive end out of Georgia. He has given a verbal to Florida State, but wanted to check out Ohio State just to be sure. Wells may have to act fast, the Buckeyes are probably going to give only 3 or 4 more scholarships and I'm sure two of them are reserved for Jenkins and Pyror.
