Terry McLaurin commits to Ohio State

The newest Ohio State commit, Terry McLaurin. - Student Sports

Urban Meyer and Ohio State land #13 for the class of 2014.

The newest Buckeye took the blue collar route to becoming an Ohio State pledge. After arriving for Ohio State's one day camp June 9th, McLaurin was a relatively unknown quality, but one with a high ceiling. A tremendous showing (including being the fastest player at that particular session) fast tracked him in the eyes of the staff, and after a return engagement, McLaurin got the OSU offer he desperately sought after. Echoing shades of incoming safety Darron Lee, McLaurin earned his offer the old fashioned way, and today announced his commitment to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.

McLaurin, who hails from Indianapolis, Indiana, is a 3-star wide receiver in the 247Composite Rankings. He grades out as the 573rd player overall in the class of 2014, the 73rd best wide receiver in the class, and the sixth best player from the state of Indiana. You have to think with his new found commitment to Ohio State, the two services who presently haven't evaluated him will soon be doing so and the ones that have might be revisiting his tape to come up with a new consensus. He'd also been considering offers from Purdue and Missouri.

As evidenced by his winning the super smokehouse event at Ohio State's one day camp his first of two times, McLaurin is a speed receiver. While he's unlikely to shake off physical press coverage at the line of scrimmage, he's more than capable of beating his man down the field, making a play on the ball, and racing into the endzone for six. Expect him as more of a flanker type or possibly even out of the slot.

With the addition of McLaurin, Ohio State now has two wide receivers from the state of Indiana joining Lonnie Johnson, who hails from Gary. Check out what the newest Buckeye is bringing to Columbus in 2014:
