Ohio State: Raekwon McMillan commits to Buckeyes


The Ohio State Buckeyes have gotten a big commitment in the form of linebacker Raekwon McMillan.  Regarded as a 5-star prospect and one of the best players in the country overall, the Hinesville, Georgia native joins fellow 5-star prospect Dante Booker from Akron to potentially form an impressive duo of linebackers as freshman in Columbus next year.  This commitment is big for the Buckeyes as they need linebackers, especially if Ryan Shazier declares early for the NFL Draft, forgoing his senior year.

It is important to note that commitments are non binding and unless McMillan signs a Letter of Intent, which cannot happen yet, he is free to change his mind at any time.  Nevertheless, all is good in Buckeye land in the wake of the loss to Michigan State and preparation for the Orange Bowl against Clemson as head coach Urban Meyer keeps bringing in talent.
