is on a roll. 22 recruits already for the 2009 class with over 7 months left to
go before National Letter of Intent Signing Day. Seeing these numbers so early
and the level of talent being as good as the best of Tressel, 2002 and 2008, is
remarkable. At the top of the class is Gateway High School Linebacker Dorian
Bell, rated as one of the best in the country. But right behind him is the
eighth best cornerback in the country from the same high school program in

these Pennsylvania recruits aren’t staying at
home and attending Pittsburgh or Penn State.
But Jim Tressel and his staff have been able to go into neighboring Michigan and Pennsylvania
and pull out some incredible talent. The renovated Woody Hayes facility, the
coaching staff, the academics, the fans, the history, the current recruits, and
the current players, Add up everything that Ohio State has to offer and the
high school players are wowed when they come to visit.

friends and family present that he would be a Buckeye. He mentioned all the
things that make Ohio
State the place to be,
academics, the coaches, the facilities, the tradition, the players, and the
chance to win a National Championship.
