The Buckeyes have had a rough past 10 months. They lost their head coach, starting QB and even a couple key starters have missed the start of this season.
Their 2012 recruiting class efforts also have not got as well as could be, with the looming sanctions hovering over their heads. Recruits just haven't seemed as interested in playing in Columbus this cycle.
However, this is still The Ohio State Buckeyes, and they still attract good talent.
