Gambrell Becomes a Quick Fifth

Remember way back on Sunday when the Buckeyes only had two verbals for the 2011 class?

Things continued to move quickly on the recruiting front asToledo Rogers defensive back Derjuan Gambrell has become the fifth member of the class, joining Chris Carter and Antonio Underwood as verbals that have come through in the last 18 hours (and all coming near the announcement of a two year contract extension for JT).

The 6-foot-2 and 180-pound Gambrell has been a varsity starter at free safety since the beginning of his sophomore season. He made 64 tackles and intercepted two passes this past season. Gambrell has been recruited by the Buckeyes as a cornerback.

Offered just last month, Gambrell comes in a bit under the radar, but has decent speed and the size the staff loves in corners.
