The Ohio State Buckeyes got their fourth commitment for their 2013 class on Thursday, and it was expected. Eli Woodard took to Twitter and made his announcement that he's committing to the Buckeyes, being the fourth highly-ranked player to commit for next year's class.

After much prayer and consideration, I'm proud to commit as a student-athlete to The Ohio State University! #BuckeyeNation

Woodard is the No. 28 player in the nation according to Rivals and one of the better cornerback prospects out there. He's 6-foot-1 and has decent bulk. Both Rivals and Scout rate him as a four star player. He's visited the team multiple times and was a big fan growing up. He also received offers from Alabama, Wisconsin, Michigan, Cal, Miami, Notre Dame and others.

As it stands, the 2013 haul consists of Woodard, Jalin Marshall, Billy Price and fellow defensive back Cam Burrows. That's a very impressive class for how early it is, so Urban Meyer should be commended for his quick work.
