sign ’em up.

I think I’ve finally figured out Jim Tressel’s recruiting strategy: sign every player in the Midwest.

With six additions to the 2009 class in the last five days, it’s become a little difficult to keep from thinking about what’s in store for Ohio State football in the next few years. And then grinning like an idiot.

Thanks to the Dispatch, here’s the class so far. Note the Pittsburgh kids on the list; if you think I haven’t been having fun with those signings in the newsroom, you don’t know me very well.
