With the Ohio State football team in turmoil and turnover, it's no surprise that recruits are also jumping ship. The Buckeyes have already lost two players and now they may lose out on five-star offensive lineman Kyle Kalis, reports Scout.com.
Kalis had committed to Ohio State earlier in the year, but when former head coach Jim Tressel resigned on Memorial Day Kalis was ready to de-commit then. Interim coach Luke Fickell was only able to keep Kalis committed for several more weeks before he informed the coach on Tuesday night.
While he hasn't ruled out re-committing to Ohio State, Kalis has planned a visit to the Michigan Wolverines for this weekend. Along the Olentangy, our Ohio State blog, doesn't feel very confident in the school's recruiting right now:
It is now abundantly clear that Luke Fickell and his staff cannot adequately recruit until the NCAA finishes with Ohio State. Ohio State is ripe for negative recruiting with its instability, and there is nothing that can be said or done in the interim to fix the problem.
And who knows how any sanctions the NCAA does hand down will affect recruiting. Rough waters are still ahead for the Buckeyes.
