When Ohio State coach Urban Meyer nabbed commit No. 19 in the class of 2013 and it involved defensive tackle Donovan Munger (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights), hardly a ripple of shock went through Ohio State fans. Meyer’s love for big men to plug up the line isn’t anything new as the Buckeyes push forward following a 12-0 season. In fact, the two-time national champion has made it a regular habit to rotate defensive linemen in and out in an effort to wear down the offensive line.
On the heels of landing ESPN 150 cornerback Gareon Conley (Massillon, Ohio/Washington), Ohio State picked up another verbal from an in-state defensive prospect as ESPN 300 defensive tackle Donovan Munger (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights) committed Sunday. When Conley announced his decision, we mentioned that the Buckeyes’ 2013 class is continuing to be defined by its strength among the ‘skilled’ positions, but there is still a noticeable push to strengthen the defensive trenches in Columbus, especially inside.
