Jody Victor: Twenty of the top college prospects in the nation have committed to play football for Ohio State beginning next fall. This year's class is made up of 19 high school prospects and one junior college player. The class includes 10 players from the state of Ohio.
One of this year's recruits, All-Ohio linebacker Ross Homan, enrolled at Ohio State at the beginning of Winter Quarter and is currently taking classes. Two others, running back Chris Wells of Akron Garfield, who is generally considered the No. 1 prospect in the country, and defensive back Kurt Coleman, a two-time All-Ohio pick, are expected to enroll at the beginning of spring quarter and will take part in spring practice.
