Zach Boren committed to Ohio State
for the 2009 class this past week, as the 14th member of the class does this
class grow into one of the best in recent history?
Bill Smith: Like all drafts, it is difficult to analyze a
class of freshmen until they take the field.
Getting the players you want to commit to the school is only half the
story. The rest is having them produce
on the field like you thought they would.
There is no question that this class looks beyond outstanding and we
have every reason to believe that it will produce a lot of wins.
Pete Quint: It's always hard to say which class produces the
most talent since we are all just going by what we think we know. The class looks a little light on the
offensive side of the ball so far but there are six more scholarships left and
nearly a whole year to draw some more talent into Columbus.
It will certainly be a great class but I'm not sure if we can call them
the best quite yet. If they can land a
top tier receiver and a running back then we can start the discussion.
Eric Geier: Break out the streamers, tie a balloon on the
mail box and hire a clown, another Boren is coming to Ohio State.
Ohio State is quite stacked, now they just
need to prove it on the football field.
Ryan Leonardo: Yes, but so do all of Tressel's classes so
far. He will eventually pass Cooper in
the contest of "who can get the most players into the NFL."
Steve Patterson: This class is filling up early with great
talent from around the mid-west. They will look to finish off strong with some
highly ranked players from Florida
and other more distance football hot beds. Beating a fourth place national
finish in 2008 will be difficult for the 2009 class but the class will be
bigger which always pushing up the national ranking.
