Ohio State defensive tackle target Donovan Munger of Shaker Heights visited Ohio State a few weeks
ago and came away feeling very good about what he saw. He was back over
the weekend for the Buckeyes’ spring game and things again went very

the recruits and a couple of the players. The game was good and I liked
As one would guess, Munger kept a close eye on what was going on in the trenches.
“They have a lot of depth on the offensive and defensive lines,” Munger said. “They rotate a lot of guys in which I like.”
The 6-foot-4 and 285-pound Munger has close to 20 scholarship
offers including one from the Buckeyes, so it is not surprising the Ohio
State coaches spent time talking to him on Saturday.
“I talked to coach (Mike) Vrabel, coach (Stan) Drayton and coach
(Urban) Meyer,” Munger said. “Coach Meyer talked about how they like me.
It went well.”
Munger knows Meyer is quickly filling his 2013 recruiting class and filling it with great prospects.
“Their 2013 class is loaded with players,” Munger said. “They

In addition to Ohio State, Munger’s a list of offers includes
Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Penn State, West Virginia,
Washington, Pitt, Illinois, Indiana, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Boston
College, Louisville, Cincinnati and Minnesota.

I’m really surprised how fast all this is going.”
When asked if the Buckeyes are his leader, Munger said, “They are
up there. I’m still doing my research. I like Georgia, Tennessee, West
Virginia, I like a lot of schools. I have to narrow it down pretty
Munger has been a varsity starter since his freshman year when he
played guard. Munger started at tackle on both sides of the ball his
sophomore season. He played defensive end and offensive tackle during
his junior season.
“Ohio State just said defensive tackle,” Munger said.
Kurelic’s Comment: I would not be surprised if this one is
over sooner rather than later. In fact it would not shock me if it
ended in the Buckeyes’ favor in the next week.
