Ohio State Football Recruiting: Luke Roberts Commits to Buckeyes

Michael ChungCorrespondent IIIJuly 13, 2011

Some good news today for Ohio State. Luke Roberts, a 6'2", 215-lb linebacker from Lancaster, Ohio announced on Facebook that he has committed to play football at Ohio State. It is not surprising that the first recruit to commit to OSU after the announcement of new defensive coach Mike Vrabel is a linebacker. 

On Facebook, Roberts posted, "Is officially an Ohio State Buckeye." Fellow recruit Joshua Perry wrote on Roberts Facebook: "There you go! Welcome aboard. Glad to have you as a part of the Buckeye brotherhood!"

This is a personal and very special announcement for me too. I have known Luke Roberts since he was 2 years old. He is an incredibly intense person with drive and energy beyond the norm. He is also an incredibly intelligent person as well as someone who has deep faith and character. He will do well at Ohio State.
