Once he was announced as the new head coach of the Ohio State
Buckeyes, Urban Meyer quickly called Ohio State running back commitment Brionte Dunn (Canton, Ohio/GlenOak). Meyer made sure Dunn knew he is very intent on keeping him in this OSU recruiting class.

This
evening Meyer made an in-home visit with Dunn and sealed the deal with
the four-star running back. Dunn is completely committed to the Buckeyes
and will not make an official visit to Michigan or anywhere else for
that matter.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke has been hot in his pursuit of Dunn and
the GlenOak star had been planning official visits to both Ohio State,
Michigan and perhaps USC while saying he is a “soft” commitment to the
Buckeyes.

However, after his official visit to OSU and Meyer’s subsequent home-visit, Dunn’s recruitment is over.

“I am happy to be a Buckeye,” Dunn said,

Dunn had said he had some questions he wanted answered including
how he would fit in when it comes to Meyer’s “spread” offense, and
between the official visit and Meyer’s in-home visit those questions
have been answered to Dunn’s satisfaction.

“I am going to be used in a lot of ways,” Dunn said. “It all depends on how good I am.”

Now Dunn is looking ahead to fulfilling a life-long dream.

“I have been an Ohio State fan my whole life,” Dunn said. “Since I was a little kid I wanted to be Buckeye.”

The 6-foot-1 and 220-pound Dunn rushed for 1,700 yards this
season despite missing a couple games with a fractured pelvis. He rushed
for over 2,000 yards his junior season.

Kurelic’s Comment: The Urban Meyer magic continues.
Keeping Dunn in the Buckeyes’ 2012 recruiting class is huge not only
because he is a great prospect, but Meyer has also kept him away from
Hoke who dearly wanted and needed him.
