Once again Urban Meyer, and Ohio State are successful in flipping a verbally committed prospect to join the Elite '15. Former long time Nebraska pledge Mirko Jurkovic, who officially visited OSU for their victory over arch rival Michigan, decommitted from the Huskers after the firing of head coach Bo Pelini, and is now the 23rd senior to join the Buckeyes class of 2015.
Looking to beef up the depth chart, Jurkovic is the cherry on top for Meyer, and Ed Warinner's class of 2015 haul of offensive linemen. The big, and athletic, 6'5, 275-pound four-star prospect joins Grant Schmidt, Kevin Feder, Matthew Burrell, and Branden Bowen as senior road blocks headed to play their college ball in Columbus.
While Schmidt, Feder, and Bowen will most likely line up at tackle, Mirko, like Burrell could end up cracking the depth chart at guard.
Jurkovic, a Indiana native, who played this past season at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL for Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke, didn't just hold scholarship offers from the Huskers and Buckeyes during the process. Arkansas, Florida, South Carolina, Mississippi State, and Wake Forest are just some of the other schools who gave him a chance to play for their team.
According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Jurkovic is the 51st offensive guard, and 798th overall prospect in the 2015 class.
