One by one, we will be video-profiling each member of the Buckeyes 2012 recruiting class.
With several key losses from the 2011 offensive line, signing some of the nation's best o-lineman was clearly on the mind of coach Urban Meyer and his staff.
We've already profiled Kyle Dodson and Joey O'Connor. The Buckeyes also made a huge addition to the future o-line with the signing of 4-star OT Taylor Decker from Butler HS in Vandalia, OH.
The 6-8, 310 Decker will be a literally huge and essential part of a rebuilding offensive line under coach Meyer. He's as strong, intense, and physically and athletically gifted as they come at his position.
Decker was previously committed to Notre Dame, but ended up at Ohio State when all was said and done.
The following excerpt from the Chicago Tribune sheds some light on just how the Buckeyes were able to "steal" Decker away from the Irish.
Urban Meyer plucked two of Notre Dame's assistants for his new staff at Ohio State. Now he's pilfering Irish recruits, too.
Offensive lineman Taylor Decker has switched commitments from Notre Dame to Ohio State after the Vandalia, Ohio, product took an official visit with the Buckeyes.
Decker had been committed to the Irish since last March, but Rivals.com reported that the move of Irish assistants Ed Warinner and Tim Hinton to Ohio State contributed to Decker's flip.
