Roberts makes No. 10 for Ohio State

The Ohio State recruiting effort got a much needed shot in the arm on Wednesday afternoon as Lancaster (Ohio) linebacker Luke Roberts committed to Luke Fickell and the Buckeye staff. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder is ranked as the No. 49 player in the state of Ohio by BuckeyeGrove.com and fills a big need at linebacker in the class of 2012.
The commitment is the 10th of the year for Ohio State and marks the 5th commit on the defensive side of the ball for the Bucks.
The three star future Buckeye hails from the same school that produced Bobby Carpenter and while Roberts has his own identity as a player it still bodes well for the Bucks to get another player out of the same program.
Roberts held offers Arizona, Cincinnati, Indiana, Purdue and several MAC teams before deciding on the Buckeyes.
We will have more on this breaking news as well as reaction from Roberts later this evening here at BuckeyeGrove.com.
