Update: Don’t miss out on Fox Sports Ohio’s Signing Day LiveBlog starting at Noon Eastern Time!
Welcome to “Second Christmas” for many college football fans, and a day that’s shaping up to be a great one for Ohio State’s family. Based on verbal commitments alone, the Buckeyes 2011 class has been ranked at #11 (Rivals), #7 (ESPN), and #4 (Scout) nationally.
Stay tuned to The Buckeye Battlecry for today’s news and notes as student athletes and future Buckeyes sign their National Letters of Intent. If you’ve got questions about the NLoI, check out either the program’s home page or the NCAA info sheet.
We’ll be updating this post as the faxes come in to Columbus, and will let you know as Ohio State gains new commitments from students who are still in process. Will we see another Kenny Guiton- type surprise?
For Ohio State fans, the questions that will be answered today include- “Will any of the current verbals flip their commitment?”, “Where will Glenville’s Aundrey Walker, Cardale Jones (Ohio State), and Andre Sturdivant end up?”, “Will the Buckeyes be able to keep Curtis Grant and JuJuan Story (no) away from the Gators?”
We’ll be joined later today by the team at Fox Sports Ohio for a livechat, and hope you’ll spend a little of your workday sharing your opinion with us as well.
Let’s get started!
These young men aren’t required to sign the LOI, since they have already enrolled. You may have seen them on campus over the past few weeks… I know the Florida guys are enjoying the snow.
