Chris Carter is officially a Buckeye

Chris Carter the OL recruit who ran into some legal issues on Signing Day has finally signed his LOI. As is being reported in the Columbus Dispatch Carter signed his letter this evening as is being welcomed with open arms by The Ohio State University.

“We are excited Chris will be a Buckeye,” Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said. “He has had a great support system at home, as well as at his high school with the likes of his principal Maryum Sims, his athletic director Velma Pettiegrew, and his coach Scott Wodtly. They truly believe that Chris will have great success on and off the field at Ohio State.”

I for one will refrain from giving my opinion on this young man as no matter what you say you will upset some group of Buckeye fans. I will say I fully trust Coach Tressel to make the best decision for OSU and the player. I wish him well and hope he becomes a great Buckeye lineman and an even better citizen of the Columbus community.


  1. I believe that he’ll start his career in Tressel’s doghouse, and have to work his way out. Now, that can be done, but it takes serious commitment…we’ll see what happens, I guess

  2. @ MikeLew- I agree he will have to go above and beyond what every other recruit has to do to earn the respect and trust of Tressel and likely most of Buckeye Nation whether he deserves to be treated like that or not. The good news for him is he now has a chance to do just that and he gets to do it as a Buckeye 🙂
