Just days after putting the finishing touches on his 2013 recruiting class, Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes are wasting no time building next year's class.

Ohio State had already secured two commitments for the 2014 class from 4-star offensive lineman Marcelys Jones and 4-star cornerback Damon Webb.

The class more than doubled in size over the weekend, though, when 4-star offensive lineman Kyle Trout, 4-star defensive lineman Lawrence Marshall and running back Parris Campbell all committed to play their college football for Meyer and the Buckeyes.

So to summarize. RB/ATH Parris Campbell, DE Lawrence Marshall, OT Kyle Trout all #buckeyes within the last hour or so. #OhioState

The commitments came in so fast that it was almost too hard to keep up. With the trio of commitments, Meyer has landed seven prospects in total (for 2013 and 2014) in a span of just 12 days.

That is some kind of roll the Buckeyes are on.

Trout joins Jones as two early offensive linemen commits, a huge area of need for Ohio State's '14 recruiting class. The Buckeyes only signed two true offensive linemen to this year's class, and with four seniors slated to start for Ohio State this year, there's a huge need for linemen in Columbus.

Marshall joins Webb, becoming the second prospect from Michigan to pledge to Ohio State. Marshall held offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Tennessee and Pitt (among others). 

Marshall is a speedy end who packs a huge punch coming off the edge. Watch his highlight film here:

Campbell, who also had offers from Michigan State and Tennessee, will join a loaded backfield when he reaches campus. Although Carlos Hyde and Jordan Hall will have graduated, the Buckeyes' backfield will still boast the likes of Rod Smith, Ezekiel Elliott, Bri'onte Dunn and Warren Ball.
