This isn't a slight BTW. His commitment should be celebrated by Buckeye fans and it sounds like Samuel is passionate about OSU. He'll probably be an effective recruiter for them as the bigger fish all know each other through camps etc.
Samuel's commitment bumps OSU up to second among 247's composite team rankings, just behind Alabama. Also, have a great shot with two of the top kids left, Glenville's Marshon Lattimore checking in at 32, and number 12 LB Raekwon Miller, among others like OL target Damien Prince.
If things hold and Meyer closes with his typical urgency, hard to imagine anything worse than a top 5 class, with a real shot at the top overall class in 2014.
