If your a current Ohio State football recruit for the 2009 recruiting class and want to play football for the Buckeyes, you better hurry up, make your decision, and commit because this class is almost wrapped up.

Today at Ohio State’s high school senior advanced camp at the WHAC, Jim Tressel reeled in another recruit, that being former Buckeye great Cris Carter’s son, Duron.

Duron, a to-be senior at Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida, choose The Ohio State University over numerous scholarship offers including Wisconsin, Auburn, and LSU.

Duron, a 6-3 180 lb Wide Receiver, concluded the 2007 regular season with 22 catches for 361 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Duron told Scout this:

I committed to Ohio State and it feels good to know I’ll be attending the best school in the country…I’m happy to know I have my college locked in and now I can concentrate on winning a state title in high school…Coach Tressel said he thinks I can use my height to make plays on the outside. I’m real excited to be a part of the Buckeye family.

Cris seemed to like his son’s decision also:

This is a great moment for me and I’m kind of speechless right now…This is kind of surreal. This morning I went for a walk and thought to myself that I can’t believe how great this is. I feel like I died and went to heaven because I get to go through the Buckeye experience twice.

Duron, who will trying to step out of his father’s shadow, joins 17 other Buckeye commits that will number around 25 come signing day and may be more due to transfers and attrition.

Maybe with the pending departure of Antonio Henton, Terrelle Pryor may switch his jersey number to#7 and we could see the Carter lineage back in the #2 jersey.

Stay tuned as DTI’s Alex will be analyzing the 2009 recruiting class in the near future.
