Urban Meyer adds his second recruit

What has quickly become bizzarro world only a month ago Ohio State was looking at what was one of their worst looking recruiting classes in a long time. Then rumors started floating around that Urban Meyer was going to be our next head coach. Shortly after the rumors started Adolphus Washington and Riquan Southward both gave verbals to OSU. Those are 2 very good 4* recruits. Then Meyer was actually hired and instantly applied for and received an exemption from the NCAA to allow him and anyone he hires to focus on recruiting while Coach Fickel handles day to day and bowl prep. Some schools cried foul I am looking at you scUM. Others followed suit TaMu, UCLA, Illinois, and others. Coach Meyer has just been a kid in a candy store calling recruits and visiting them and having them visit OSU. Earlier tonight he got a verbal from a 5* who always like OSU to flip from Penn State and then tonight while on a home visit to Canton, Ohio he got his second commit of the day and this is a flip too and the new OSU recruit is…..

6’5″ 245 lbs 4* Speed rush DE Se’Von Pittman from Canton Mckinley High in Canton, Ohio to flip from Michigan St. to OSU. Pittman becomes the 18th commitment in the 2012 recruiting class for OSU and the second commit for Coach Meyer in his 2nd week on the job. Pittman is another ESPN 150 recruit and the 3rd DLman to commit in the last few weeks all of which are ESPN 150 guys. Pittman is a huge get because he has speed and strength to be a true stand up edge rusher but also is very strong in the rush defense and could very well get lots of early time playing.

There are other possible flips we could hear about soon including 2 more from PSU in Noah Spence and Camren Williams. Both are leaning towards OSU right now. Keeping Bri’Onte Dunn has become a high priority as well and there are a few other big names floating out there who are still going to visit OSU and meet Coach Meyer. OSU will have a few extra schollies to offer due to transfers already getting one from Taylor Graham leaving OSU late last week. Times are exciting if you are a recruiting fan. So enjoy the ride and start to imagine what the 2013 class will look like with Urban getting a full year to recruit.
