Thad Matta has an impressive track record when it comes to recruiting during his eight-season tenure at Ohio State.

According to Scout.com, Matta brought the No. 8-ranked class in 2011, No. 3-ranked class in 2010, No. 2-ranked class in 2008, No. 7-ranked class in 2007 and No. 2-ranked class in 2006 to Columbus.

The 2006 group was the one that included the “Thad Five” prospects of Greg Oden, Mike Conley Jr., David Lighty, Daequan Cook and Othello Hunter.

However, thanks in large part to uncertainty regarding the scholarship situation during the season, Matta did not sign a notable class for 2012. Because of that, he is out for redemption this year with his eyes on a number of top-notch prospects.

Here are six selling points Matta can bring up when he is talking to recruits and their families before national signing day.
