Troy, Ohio, defensive tackle Todd Denlinger made 125 tackles including 17 for losses his junior season. He played middle linebacker, but will move back to defensive tackle his senior season.
The 6-foot-3 and 280 pound Denlinger is one of the Buckeye state's top defensive prospects. Thus, recruiters are showing plenty of interest, including Denlinger's home-state school.
In fact Ohio State officially offered Denlinger a scholarship today.
"There's exciting news," Todd's mother Teri Denlinger said moments ago. "Ohio State offered a scholarship today. They came by the school and gave the written offer. We're pretty excited."
Earlier this week the Buckeyes had indicated an offer was on the way, but had not put it in writing until today.
In addition to Ohio State Denlinger has offers from Wisconsin, Pitt, Maryland, West Virginia, Boston College, Northwestern, Duke, Tennessee, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Michigan State, and Stanford among others. However the Buckeyes may be tough to beat.
