College All Star Games Draw Buckeyes
For seniors at Ohio State it has been an exciting January so far with a Rose Bowl win over the Oregon Ducks and the spring is going to remain busy and full of opportunity. Four Buckeyes have been selected to play in College All Star games in the month of January and early February. Then they will need to complete their classes, get ready for the OSU Pro Day, the NFL Combine, and the NFL Draft.
