It's been a very, very busy recruiting period for Urban Meyer since he took over the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the busy signing period has continued now as the Buckeyes have gotten another two commitments. This time, it's Ft. Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas School's Joey Bosa as well as North Carolina Wilson Hunt's Lewis Neal.

Both players are defensive ends though Bosa has mostly played on the strong side and Neal the weak side. It looks like Neal has been recruited to play linebacker for the Buckeyes rather than DE, though.

Bosa selected the Buckeyes amidst a slew of offers from other big schools including Alabama and Florida. Neal had selections including Miami and Wake Forest. Rivals ranks Bosa as the second-best defensive end in the country and ranks Neal as the 16th-best.

Bosa and Neil are the 12th and 13th commitments of the signing period for Ohio State. Only the Michigan Wolverines have put together a larger recruiting class so far for 2013.
