Six committed members of the 2013 recruiting class are at The Opening.
Another player in Oregon this weekend is running back Derrick Green, who still likes the Buckeyes.

Nice story about former OSU player Tony Stockman, who has a very special son. (Dispatch)
The best of Cleveland and Columbus got together for some hoops at St. John Arena on Saturday, and it resembled an OSU alumni game. (Eleven Warriors)
Why Jared Sullinger won't be a bust. (Ozone)
