The Ohio State football staff still has scholarship offers out to a few in-state prospects including defensive tackle Donovan Munger (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Shaker Heights) who actually could fit in nicely for the Buckeyes on either side of the ball.
“I talked to coach (Mike) Vrabel and coach (Urban) Meyer a week
or so ago,” Munger said. “They said to stay strong in the classroom. And
they are trying to get me on campus for a visit.”
While Vrabel and Meyer recently spoke with Munger, Stan Drayton is the OSU coach recruiting him.
“He stopped out at our school once this spring,” Munger said. “He is from this area.”
The 6-foot-4 and 285-pound 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.
The Buckeyes have missed out on some of the top offensive line
prospects on their list and Munger is more than capable of playing on
that side of the ball in college. But the OSU coaches continue to
recruit him as a defensive tackle – at least for now.
“They haven’t said anything about offense,” Munger said.
Munger landed a scholarship offer from Michigan State in the past week.
“I’m not sure, but at the moment I think I have 17 offers now,” Munger said.
Munger’s offer list includes Ohio State, Michigan State, Auburn,
Georgia, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Penn State, West Virginia, Washington,
Pitt, Illinois, Indiana, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Boston College,
Louisville, Cincinnati and Minnesota.
“I can’t say I like any schools before I visit them,” Munger
said. “I’ve only been to Ohio State, Tennessee, Georgia and Michigan. I
want to see as many colleges as I can this summer and then decide before
my football season starts. I hope I can do that. That’s my goal.”
When asked if he will camp at Ohio State this summer, Munger said, “I’m thinking about it.”
Kurelic’s Comment: I like Munger just about as much on
offense as I do on defense. If he ends up at Ohio State I think he
initially goes there as a defensive player, but I would not be at all
surprised to see him flip sides once he gets there. Munger says he has
no real preference as to which side of the ball he plays on at the next
