Offensive lineman Alex Boone from Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edwards has committed to Ohio State.
"I love the coaches at Ohio State," Boone said. "I love Ohio State. I always wanted to be a Buckeye. I'm happy and excited. I'll be an offensive tackle there."
Boone, going into his junior season, joins running back Jamario O'Neal as the Buckeyes have now landed two star Ohioans for their class of 2005.
As one recruiter said of Boone, "You won't find many linemen anywhere better than him."
The 6-foot-8 and 290 pounder from Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edwards will be not only one of the top three overall prospects in Ohio next season, but one of the finest linemen in the entire nation.
