Ohio State’s work during their big recruiting weekend continues to roll, as they add the twelfth member of the 2013 class, defensive lineman Joey Bosa from Fort Lauderdale’s St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
Bosa, a four/five star athlete that’s ranked in the top 30 nationally by the major scouting services, is currently plays strong-side defensive end (think John Simon) for STA. The junior is listed as 6’5″ and at 260 pounds, and has amazing Buckeye ties- he’s the nephew of former Ohio State linebacker Eric Kumerow.
Bosa is another OSU verbal with an incredible laundry list of offers from BCS schools, including Alabama, the Big Three schools in Florida, Tennessee, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Auburn; he made visits to Madison and Ann Arbor last weekend when he also came by Columbus.
When you watch his film (after the jump), it’s hard to not see why Coach Meyer would be so high on him- his strength and athleticism are disruptive for opposing offenses. Having Bosa as a part of the Ohio State team, in addition to the current defensive line and incoming 2012 class makes me weep for B1G offensive coordinators and quarterbacks- Wonder what ACC school Wisconsin will pillage to find their next cannon fodder?
That’s two verbal commitments for the weekend… more to come? Stay tuned.
In the meantime, welcome to Buckeye Family, Joey!
