The Buckeyes have a commitment from Dublin (Ohio) Scioto senior safety and running back Bradley McDougald.  McDougald was one of many of the Buckeyes’ 25 verbal commitments in Ohio Stadium on Saturday watching as the Bucks blasted Youngstown State 43-0.

McDougald’s teammate, junior defensive end Grant Pleasant, was also in the house.  Pleasant has seen the Buckeyes play in Ohio Stadium before, but this time was a little different.

“It was my first time down on the field with the recruits,” Pleasant said.  “It was pretty fun.  It was nice.  I liked it a lot.  I talked to some of the other recruits.”

The 6-foot-3 and 220-pound Pleasant was a part-time starter for the Irish his sophomore year when he registered three quarterback sacks.

Pleasant played defensive end last season, but has moved inside to play defensive tackle most of the time this season.  He has three sacks in the first two games.

Pleasant is being recruited as a defensive end or outside linebacker.

The Ohio State coaching staff is not alone in their interest in the Irish standout.

“I’ve talked to Ohio State, Michigan State, Ball State, Wisconsin, that’s about it so far,” Pleasant said.  “I like Ohio State, Michigan State, I’m interested in Wisconsin and Illinois.

“But Ohio State is my favorite.  I’ve always been an Ohio State fan.”
