With all that has transpired it
certainly has made recruiting tougher for the Ohio State coaching staff
when it comes to the class of 2012. However, such may not be the case
when it comes to the class of 2013.

In
fact, at this juncture the Buckeyes seem to be in good shape with the
top three rising juniors in Ohio, defensive back Cam Burrows (Trotwood,
Ohio/Madison), quarterback/athlete Jalin Marshall
(Middletown, Ohio/Middletown) and two-way lineman Billy Price
(Austintown, Ohio/Fitch).

While those three are super prospects and each already has a
scholarship offer from the Buckeyes, another name Ohio State fans should
definitely keep in mind is Ben Gedeon
(Hudson, Ohio/Hudson).

The 6-foot-2 and 220-pound Gedeon, a linebacker, was ‘Mr. Do It
All’ for his team during his sophomore season.

Gedeon played linebacker, running back, quarterback and wide
receiver. On the defensive side of the ball Gedeon played both inside
and outside linebacker, but primarily on the inside.

In nine games (he missed one with a shoulder injury) Gedeon made
105 tackles including five sacks. Gedeon also rushed for 500 yards, had
300 passing and 300 receiving.

Gedeon is being recruited as a linebacker and already has two Big
Ten scholarship offers.

“Michigan was the first to offer me,” Gedeon said. “Then Penn
State offered. I went to both of their (football) camps and they
offered.”

In addition to the Wolverines and Nittany Lions, Gedeon is also
hearing quite a bit from Ohio State, Boston College, West Virginia,
Northwestern and North Carolina. He has visited Ohio State and
Northwestern.

“I’d probably say my top three are Michigan, Penn State and Ohio
State,” Gedeon said. “Not in any order right now. I’m not close to
deciding (on a college).”

Gedeon taking his time to select a college is a good thing in
regards to Ohio State. By the time he finishes high school the coaching
situation will have been decided and quite possibly any NCAA sanctions
will be in the rear view mirror for the Buckeyes.

“I went to Ohio State’s spring game my freshman year,” Gedeon
said. “I’ve been to a couple regular season games down there and I went
to a camp there. I talk to coach (Jim) Bollman – my recruiter. I like
Ohio State.”

Bill Kurelic’s Comment: Gedeon is an Ohio Top 10 class of 2013
prospect. He is an outstanding athlete who is going to have dozens of
scholarship offers if he waits things out long enough. I look for one of
those offers to eventually come from Ohio State.
