Jerome Baker Going To The Draft

JeromeBakerOhioState

Ohio State says goodbye to a future pro bowl player in linebacker Jerome Baker. On Monday he announced his intentions to declare for the draft this year. This is a blow to the team's defense as Baker was a pivotal leader in the defensive box.

After already hearing that Denzel Ward and Sam Hubbard were declaring for the draft Ohio State fans are sad to hear about losing another great player from their team. The departure is bittersweet for both sides after Baker posted a tweet thanking the Buckeye fans for all the love and support, and he hoped to have success at the next level.

About Tommy Togiais Commitment To OSU

TommyTogiais

Over 20 nationally ranked colleges offered Tommy Togiai a football scholarship. The Idaho native finally announced his choice last Tuesday. While his commitment was only verbal at that point, the defensive tackle stated on his Twitter account that he intended to sign with OSU.

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer visited the high school in Pocatello that Togiai attended. He apparently convinced Togiai that OSU offers a superior program since the U.S. Army All-American could have had a scholarship at nearly any college he wanted.

The 295 lbs. senior holds the ninth-place ranking of all players at the DT position in the United States. He is currently ranked as a solid four-star recruit. Other polls have ranked him as the second best DT in the current recruiting class.
