Ohio State just lost the Big 10 Championship game against Michigan State, which ultimately ruined their BCS title chances this year. However, they have already started preparing for the future of the program, four years into the future.
Danny Clark, who just finished his freshman season of football, has orally committed to Ohio State following a visit to the team’s practice. From ESPN,
“We’re standing out there while practice is going on and Urban offered halfway through practice and you don’t want to cry in front of people you don’t know, so I hugged Danny and told him he did it,” Jeff Clark said after seeing his son’s dream realized and sharing an emotional experience in their visit to Ohio State. “We hugged, and my brother was with me so we hugged, and then after we went into Urban’s office. After we talked and everything was official Urban grabbed Danny and hugged him.
“We all hugged and shook hands and then I grabbed Danny and the tears started flowing, because then it was real. I told him I was so proud of him and that I loved him and that he did it.”
Obviously, it’s still too early for Ohio State fans to be talking about Clark on the team. Recruits can only sign letter of intents after their senior season, so Clark can ultimately change his mind down the line and choose to go to a different school. Who knows, there could even be a chance Meyer isn’t with the Buckeyes in 2017.
Do you think this is a smart move for Meyer and the Buckeyes? Leave a comment below.
