We're forgetting that this staff, and Urban's since he came to OSU, no longer go after JUST the most talented kids. THis staff actively recruits great character along with talent. There is a reason we might not be in on some of these recruiting battles, even if the kid might be interested.
Leroux = high character kid that will work his tail off to play for his home state school, better himself and the team in the classroom and on the field, and could be a potential starter with a high motor later in his career.
Why not take a flyer on a kid like that? Especially when you have two top tier linemen in the fold and need to restock OL depth?
