Urban Meyer has made it very clear that he plans on winning in Columbus in the trenches.
The successful head coach has wasted no time bulking up his defensive line on the recruiting trail and at this rate, the Buckeyes will have top defensive line in the nation by far.
According to Marc Givler of Rivals, Meyer and his staff managed to land highly touted defensive tackle, Michael Hill, this past week.
Hill, out of Pendleton, South Carolina, is rated as a four-star by Rivals and the fifth best defensive tackle in the nation. He is an immense, but athletic lineman who will join Joey Bosa and Tracey Sprinkle as yet another top defensive line commit in this year's class.
Add these recruits with the defensive line commits the Buckeyes have landed in the last two years and you have what looks to be one of the most dominant defensive lines ever, coming soon to Columbus.
In the past three years, the Buckeyes have landed twelve top defensive lineman recruits and this trend seems to be on the rise.
Meyer is recruiting a combination of big, athletic defensive tackles and speed rush defensive ends to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks and stuff the run.
This isn't your father's defensive line with big buffet busters that just stuff the middle. Meyer wants athletes on his defensive line and this is a great sign for Buckeye Nation because the key to national championships in college football is talent and depth at the defensive front.
Clearly Meyer knows this and his set on delivering it to Columbus.
