It's been a productive week for Urban Meyer. The Buckeye coach has picked up three commitments to his 2014 class in the span of five days. All three are out of state prospects and all three share and important ingredient...speed.
The latest of the three is receiver Terry McLaurin, out of Indianapolis Cathedral High School. McLaurin announced for Ohio State Sunday. He stands at 6-feet tall but is considered by recruiting services, to be one of the fastest wideouts in the midwest, with legitimate 4.4 speed in the 40 yard dash.
Also announcing for Ohio State was quarterback Stephen Collier from Georgia, who is considered a dual threat QB. Collier is also an up and comer, who's star has been on the rise this summer. He recently competed against other top quarterbacks nationally at the Elite 11 camp and performed well.
Collier chose Ohio State over Wake Forest and Cincinnati, but the big boys, including national champion Alabama, were starting to show interest. According to reports, Ohio State made a scholarship offer Friday and Collier accepted on the spot.
Backtracking to last Wednesday, the Buckeyes landed defensive end Jalyn Holmes out of Virginia. Holmes is ranked among the top end prospects nationally. He also is a star tight end.
The recent announcements boosts Ohio State's list of commitments to 13. You can check out the video highlights of these newest Buckeyes below. McLaurin's highlights are first followed by Collier and Holmes.
