COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Seeking reinforcements at several thin spots - principally linebacker and offensive line - Urban Meyer got pretty much what he wanted.
The third-year Ohio State coach announced he had locked up 23 players on Wednesday, the first day for signing national letters of intent.
The Buckeyes' recruiting class was ranked in the top 10 in the nation.
Perhaps the biggest get was Raekwon McMillan, a 6-foot-2, 249-pound brute out of Georgia who some scouting services called the best linebacker in the nation. For good measure, Meyer also picked up the Ohio Associated Press Mr. Football, linebacker Dante Booker Jr. from LeBron James' high school, Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary.
Off a 12-2 season, the Buckeyes also got signatures from five offensive linemen and four receivers.
