Sabino adds to outstanding OSU class 

November, 8, 2007
Life is good in Columbus. The Buckeyes, currently the top college football team in America, are making a strong statement for equivalent status on the recruiting trail come February. Etienne Sabino (Miami/Dr. Krop), ESPN's No. 1-rated inside linebacker, made it official Thursday night when he chose Ohio State, a perceived lean, over USC live on ESPNU.

"There is something about Ohio State, I have always liked them. I went up there for a camp as a junior and really liked it, and when I went up again (this fall), I fell back in love."
