While the state of Ohio does not necessarily produce the quantity of athletes that Urban Meyer's old haunt of Florida does, there is still plenty of high-end talent with every class. And Meyer is collecting pretty much all of it.
Ohio State continued a stellar start to the class of 2013 on Tuesday by adding a commitment from Centerville (Ohio) offensive tackle Evan Lisle to give the program another big in-state pledge.
"I told coach Meyer that I liked everything about Ohio State, that it's a good program, that it would set me up later in life, and that I just wanted to be a Buckeye," Lisle told BuckeyeGrove.com.
The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder also held offers from Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma and others despite it being early in the recruiting process. Lisle just felt comfortable at Ohio State after picking up an offer last week however and ended his recruitment before it really got going.
"I just thought that I wanted to have the best senior season that I can and I didn't want to worry about recruiting," he said. "I felt like it was the right time and I didn't want to regret anything and I felt like I just needed to go for it."
The Buckeyes are now up to five commitments for the class of 2013 with Lisle becoming the first on the offensive line.
