Buckeye Recruiting and Spring Game Players to Watch

So it appears that the Ohio State football team is quietly out building a dynasty, while most of you weren't even paying attention. With yesterday's commitment from linebacker Tuf Borland from Illinois, the list of players committed to Ohio State for 2016 has grown to 10.

Which doesn't sound impressive until you consider they are all four stars or better, including

1. Three of the top four running backs in the nation (1. Kareem Walker 3. George Hill 4. Demario McCall)

2. A four-star quarterback from Desoto, Texas, (Tristen Wallace) pursued by Texas, Nebraska, Texas Tech, Mississippi State and Louisville among others

3. Along with Borland, Ohio State also has defensive commits Shaun Wade (CB from Fla) and Terrell Hall (DE from Washington)

And while rankings aren't exclusively predictors of how well a team will do in the future, just take a look at what head coach Urban Meyer has been able to accomplish without all of the players he wanted.

And speaking of OSU football, here are some names to watch in this years spring game

Cardale Jones- An obvious name of course but this might be the junior signal-caller's shot to cement himself as the starting quarterback.

Stephen Collier- First look at the freshman(redshirt) quarterback from Georgia whom coach Meyer labeled a 'developmental guy'

Malik Hooker -safety from PA should get plenty of work in today

Gareon Conley- cornerback is looking to have a breakout season in the secondary

Jamarco Jones- interior lineman from the Chicago, Ill area

Tyquan Lewis -the sophomore defensive end is someone Joey Bosa has called a 'freak'

Jalyn Holmes- another sophomore battling for a starting spot on the defensive line

Terry McLaurin- 2nd year receiver out of Indiana will be trying to fill the void left when standout Devin Smith graduated.

Among the notable scratches in this year's game due to injury include J.T. Barrett, Braxton Miller, Ezekiel Elliott and Curtis Samuel among others.
