Ohio State nabs commitment No. 7

Apparently Ohio State likes do things in pairs when it comes to linebackers.

In January, the Buckeyes scored ESPN 150 seniors from the 2013 class on consecutive days.

On Monday, Kyle Berger (Cleveland/St. Ignatius) became commitment No. 7 for Ohio State just three days after fellow outside linebacker Sam Hubbard (Cincinnati/Moeller) did the same with the Buckeyes.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Berger had made several visits to Ohio State -- two in three weeks in March -- and wanted to take his spring break to look inward before coming up with a college choice.

That choice seemed likely to come in May after possible trips to Michigan State and UCLA. He’d been to Michigan several times as well and was going to take some time off from both schools, who were believed to be running neck and neck for Berger.

Ohio State's rich history at linebacker was a factor in his commitment.
