DC Schiano apparently staying at Ohio State

DC Schiano apparently staying at Ohio State

Five-star offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere signed his National Letter of Intent with the Buckeyes on Wednesday morning, ending an interesting ride for the top offensive line prospect in this class.

Meyer also said he plans to sign a contract extension soon with Ohio State.

Meyer, 53, has gone 73-8 in six seasons as the head coach of Ohio State, leading the team to a national title and a 4-2 postseason record. The native of Tampa, Florida also received offers and visited other top-tier schools such as Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, and Florida.

"Everybody's looking for tall, elongated athletes who can bend", Meyer noted of Petit-Frere, per Ryan McGlade of Scout.com.

That would come in just shy of 247Sports' all-time rating per player average - which just so happened to be set by Ohio State a year ago. In fact, Schiano was a key recruiter for both Petit-Frere and four-star linebacker Javontae Jean-Baptiste, who is leaning towards the Buckeyes.

The two late additions cemented the Buckeyes as the second overall team in 247Sports' composite recruiting rankings. Based their head coach's reaction, the Buckeyes are doing just fine, in what's shaping up to be another near-picture ideal finish to the recruiting cycle.

"He informed me he's 100 percent staying", Meyer said of Schiano, per Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch. The Buckeyes still have an outside shot to pull in the top-rated class in the nation. In every season, the Buckeyes have finished inside the top 10 nationally. And with Petit-Frere's commitment, OSU filled every position of need in recruiting.
