As the 2009 Season Nears, Ohio State's 2010 Recruiting Class is Filling Up Fast

HD Handshoe - BlockONation.comAnalyst IAugust 7, 2009

As of today, the Buckeyes now have 11 recruits who have given OSU their verbal commitments to play football in Columbus.

That means that only seven or eight more recruits will be allowed to join the Buckeyes' 2010 class.

What this class may lack in quantity, it will make up for in quality.

Some of the big names OSU has offered that are still undecided include No. 1 overall recruit Seantrel Henderson (OL), No. 14 overall, Lamarcus Joyner (DB), and No. 18 overall, Jordan Hicks (LB).

Several of these top recruits will most likely wait until after the Ohio State/USC game on Sept. 12, before verbally committing to a program, as OSU and USC are both teams that some of them are interested in.

There won't likely be any additions to the current OSU commited list until then.

Here is the current list of players who are committed to the OSU 2010 class:

5-Star OT Andrew Norwell (6-6, 255)
Anderson HS (Cincinnati, OH)

5-Star OLB Jamel Turner (6-2, 205)
Ursuline HS (Youngstown, OH)

4-Star RB Roderick Smith (6-2, 215)
Harding HS (Fort Wayne, IN)

4-Star MLB Scott McVey (6-1, 215)
St. Ignatius HS (Cleveland, OH)

4-Star WR James Louis (5-11, 180)
Atlantic HS (Delray Beach, FL)

4-Star DE J.T. Moore (6-2, 215)
Boardman HS (Youngstown, OH)

4-Star QB Taylor Graham (6-4, 210)
Wheaton North HS (Wheaton, IL)

3-Star DE/LB David Durham (6-3, 225)
Charlotte Christian (Charlotte, NC)

3-Star DE Darryl Baldwin (6-6, 250)
Solon HS (Solon, OH)

3-Star K Drew Basil (6-0, 180)
Chillicothe HS (Chillicothe, OH)

(NR) S Chad Hagan (6-2, 230)
McMillan HS (Canonsburg, PA)

Hagan, the most recent commit, mainly plays running back for his HS, but the Buckeyes have recruited him as a safety.

Because of this, he currently has no rating at that position. He is, however, ranked as the 31st overall prospect in the state of Pennsylvania by Rivals.

We'll keep our ears to the ground, so check back with BlockONation in the future for any Ohio State recruiting updates.
