After a weekend with some big names on campus, Ohio State has added another member to the 2014 recruiting class in linebacker Kyle Berger.
It certainly seems as if the strategy for this class will be to offer nationally, but ensure that the top Ohio talent stays home to play in Columbus- Berger joins several others from the Buckeye state for this group.
A 6′ 3″, 205 pound student athlete from state runner up Cleveland St. Ignatius, Berger had for a while been considered an Ohio State lean. He also held offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Boston College, Maryland and others.
Berger becomes the seventh member of the recruiting class, and is ranked as one of the top rising juniors in the state of Ohio as well as the second outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com. Here’s a link to his Hudl.com video; be sure to check out this future Buckeye in action:
Welcome to the Ohio State Family, Kyle!
The weekend was just another building block for Urban Meyer. There were 50+ recruits in town that got to see a great environment, the coaches and players at an all time high in terms of excitement, and how close knit the team is. In addition all the coaches and players showing respect for the seniors that will be leaving and the field littered with underclassmen making impacts all over the field. So lets just say that all recruits were excited, they had a great time, enjoyed the game atmosphere, got to see Urban Meyer’s championship rings, and loved how everyone felt like it was a family atmosphere.
Now that we got that out of the way way we can talk about the information that really matters:
