Ohio State Post-Signing Day — 2012 Buckeye Commit, LB David Perkins

One by one, we will be video-profiling each member of the Buckeyes 2012 recruiting class.

Coach Meyer said the linebacker position was the team's biggest area of need.

He and the Buckeyes made a significant addition to the linebacker corp with the signing of 4-star LB David Perkins from South Bend, Indiana.

Perkins is a physically gifted athlete and as you can see from the excerpt below out of the South Bend Tribune, he should make an impact on the field for the Buckeyes sooner than later.

"Now that recruiting is over, now it's time for the preparation
stage," Perkins said. "I'm going to get (to Columbus) as many times as I can before I'm officially down there and get acquainted with all the players and get down all the things that I need to know, so I'll be ready to come in and assume my role."

That role will be at linebacker. Many recruiting services has listed Perkins under the "athlete" category, but new OSU coach Urban Meyer has Perkins ticketed for linebacker.

"I remember him talking to me about that and I remember him talking to me about how big of a piece I am in this class and for the team because they're short on linebackers," Perkins said, "so me coming in as a freshman, it's not like a redshirt, or just do special teams this year. He said I'm coming in and I will be playing. There's no time to waste."
