As an Ohio State fan, it's hard to admit that the Michigan Wolverines football program has generated more wins than any other college football team in the country. While Michigan has had a tremendous amount of success over the years, a lot of that can be credited to Ohioans.

Many of Michigan's all-time greats were from the state of Ohio, including 23 of their 78 All Americans, and two out of their three Heisman trophy winners (Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson). Perhaps that's why Michigan and Brady Hoke have offered scholarships to 23 different Ohioans in the last two years. 

During the 2012 season 22 of the 99 players on Michigan's roster (22.22 percent) were from Ohio. Hoke is looking to repeat this trend in order for Michigan to sustain success.

Brady Hoke of all people knows this, and If he can have the same type of success as he did this year (snagging nine top-notch recruits from the Buckeye state in the 2013 class), look for his team to make a push to compete for Big Ten titles in the next few years. 

So without further ado, let me introduce you to the four Ohio recruits who have received offers from, and are considering going to both Ohio State and Michigan. Oh and I will chime in the reason why they should become Buckeyes as well!
