Kyle Dodson picks Ohio State

Score yet another recruiting victory for Ohio State and Urban Meyer.

The first-year Buckeyes coach has had the magic touch on the recruiting trail ever since he was hired in November, and he added another jewel to a sparkling class when offensive lineman Kyle Dodson picked Ohio State.

Dodson, a 6-foot-5, 315-pounder from Cleveland, is rated a three-star prospect by ESPN.com. He had committed to Wisconsin last year but was widely expected to change his mind. Michigan State had also been in the mix for Dodson's services. It was another tough break for the Badgers, who also lost blue-chip lineman J.J. Denman who switched his commitment to Rutgers.

Dodson is the 10th offensive or defensive lineman in this year's Buckeyes class, as Meyer is clearly building the foundation of his program in the trenches.
