Ohio State Football Recruiting: Four-Star LB Alex Anzalone Makes 11 In Class Of 2013

Urban Meyer's 2013 recruiting class is growing by the day, and yesterday's coup of four-star linebacker Alex Anzalone from Pennsylvania added yet another potent weapon to an already-stacked class. The 6-foot-3, 220lb Anzalone informed Alex Gleitman of Eleven Warriors of his intentions on Saturday, and became the 11th member of Ohio State's 2013 class in the process.

The speedy linebacker announced immediately after Ohio State's Spring Game on Saturday (which the Scarlet won 20-14), despite heavy interest from a number of other elite programs. Schools like Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma and USC were also on Anzalone's radar in addition to his hometown Penn State Nittany Lions. In the end, he opts to join a Buckeyes program that has its sights set on playing for a national title sooner, rather than later with a proven winner like Meyer at the helm.
