Ohio State's 2010 Recruiting Class: Puzzling Offensive Line Decisions

Before addressing my concerns over Ohio State's 2010 recruiting class, I want to congratulate the eighteen players who have signed with Ohio State. Ohio State had a limited number of scholarships this year, and I believe were able to secure players who will be able to contribute over the next few seasons.

Ohio State's offensive line recruiting is perplexing to me. While I respect the effort of trying to land players such as Seantrel Henderson, Matt James, and Morgan Moses, I question why Ohio State did not make signing other offensive linemen besides Andrew Norwell of Cincinnati Anderson.

For example - offensive tackle Skyler Schofner , offensive tackle Andrew Donnal, and offensive guard/center Christian Pace were not offered by Ohio State, yet all three are from Ohio and headed to Big Ten teams.

Considering Ohio State will lose Justin Boren and Bryant Browning after the 2010 season, it will make offensive line the top recruiting concern for the 2011 recruiting class.
