Kyle Trout commits to Ohio State

Kyle Trout, the newest Ohio State Buckeye.

Urban Meyer wanted to re-emphasize the offensive line for the 2014 class. With the addition of 4-star OL Kyle Trout, he's done just that.

While Urban Meyer spoke of a desire to add up to four more prospects from state of Ohio to future recruiting classes in his National Signing Day '13 press conference, he may want to hit the pause button before implementing his "put a wall around the state of Ohio" initiative. 2014 is likely to go down as one of the most down years talent-wise in the state in recent memory. Sure, the best of the best are as good as the Buckeye state has ever produced, but the overall depth simply isn't there.

One of the most prominent exceptions to the rule, however, is 4-star offensive lineman, Kyle Trout. Meyer also made no secret that after failing to add more than two primary offensive linemen to the class of 2013, offensive line would be priority "1A, 1B, and 1C" for the '14 class. Meyer and Luke Fickell (Trout's principle recruiter) lived up to their creed, as first reported by Alex Gleitman of 11W, Trout pledged to become Ohio State's second o-linemen to give their verbal for the class of 2014 and the third overall.

The Lancaster, Ohio product received a committable offer from the Buckeyes January 26th during a previous unofficial visit to the Buckeyes' central Ohio campus. After getting the full court press from the Ohio State coaching staff, Trout took a few weeks to let the offer simmer, before giving Ohio State his word he'd be a Buckeye after his high school career following a second unofficial visit this weekend.

With starters Jack Mewhort, Andrew Norwell, Corey Linsley, and Marcus Hall all graduating after this season, Trout could be in line to step right in and start as a sophomore. The 247Composite rankings have Trout graded as the 12th best tackle overall in the class of 2014 and the fourth best player in the state of Ohio.
