Donovan Munger Is A Buckeye!!!

Written December 10th, 2012 by MaliBuckeye

Mr. Munger

We were pretty certain that this weekend would be a big one in terms of Ohio State recruiting, but this was a name that wasn’t on our radar for a commitment. Particularly given the circumstances.

Expected as a part of the Friday “arrival” for the weekend, there was speculation that Munger would end up at UCLA when he didn’t appear with the rest of the visitors- he was at the Bruins’ win over Southern Cal earlier in November.

However, he matriculated over to Columbus on Saturday and must have liked what he saw: On Sunday, Shaker Heights senior Donovan Munger gave his verbal to become the 19th member of the Class of 2013.

A four star recruit by many of the folks who do such a thing for a living, Munger held offers from Georgia, Penn State, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Washington, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Michigan State, UCLA, and Notre Dame.

At 6’4″ and 285 pounds, Donovan is projected to be the fifth member of the 2013 Defensive Line class, although there’s some speculation that he might also be looked at on the offensive line- he excelled at both positions this past year at Shaker Heights. You can check out his senior video at, or his junior highlights after the break.

Welcome to the Buckeye Family, Donovan!

    Heck, I’d be happy snagging some from aTm… they’ve got around 36 verbals already this year.

    I guess they’ve caught on to what it means to be in the SEC.

    Oversigning, rewriting history, heavy media bias leading to undue awards- they’re on it like white on rice, or white trash on the South. I just like the idea of reminding Bielema why he left Wisconsin, but I wouldn’t mind making A&M honor a few more upperclassmen scholarships.

    This pickup was more necessity than need, but you will see Meyer getting these type of pickups in the future, a kid that maybe able to play both sides of the ball and adds depth. Meyer cares as he should about Oline/Dline depth because he understands games are won and lost there. Look for him to continue to make those positions a priority.

    Whew, glad I took the time to re-read the article. At first glance I thought we’d gotten a commitment from Mungojerrie.
