Urban Meyer enters his first year as the head man of the Ohio State football program in Columbus, looking to bring the Buckeyes to national prominence in 2012.
One sure way to win over the fans is to secure future talent on the recruiting trail. Meyer is known for his aggressive recruiting style as evidenced during his years at Utah and Florida.
The class of 2013 is shaping up nicely. The quarterback position struggled for Ohio State in 2011 so acquiring the commitment from JT Barrett is a crucial step. Barrett is the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the nation and fits perfectly in Meyer's option philosophy.
Bleacher Report's Michael Felder explains what makes Barrett so dynamic.
Joining Barrett is in-state prospect Jalin Marshall. The No. 2 athlete in the country is expected to play wide receiver in Columbus for the Scarlet and Gray.
Find out what Felder thinks of cornerback recruit Cameron Burrows and tight end Marcus Baugh on this week's episode of "In the Bleachers."
