Jim Tressel

OSU Recruiting Wrap-up: Steve Helwagen breaks it all down for you with a look back at OSU's recruiting class and recruiting season, pages of detailed player profiles, stats, and a look around the Big Ten recruiting classes. Get to know the newest Buckeyes here!

Jamario O'Neal

O'Neal's Long Road To OSU - Jamario O'Neal committed to Ohio State way back in 2003 -- before his junior season. He has stuck with that commitment, but the road between now and then saw many twists and turns. Gary Housteau has an article on one of OSU's most talented commitments. 

Rob Schoenhoft
The Cincinnati Cannon -- There may not be a more visible player in all of sports than a star quarterback. This year, the Buckeyes added a quarterback with lots of potential and a cannon for an arm in Cincinnati St. Xavier's Rob Schoenhoft. Gary Housteau has the skinny on the newest quarterback to don the scarlet and gray.    

Malcolm Jenkins

New Jersey Buckeye - Malcolm Jenkins had a bit of a quiet recruitment, ending things before his senior season with a commitment to Ohio State. Charles Babb caught up with Jenkins and discovered that this is a player who is focused and prepared for a big career with the Buckeyes. Babb delivers a fine article on the Piscataway cornerback in this issue. 

Chris Wells

Who's Next? - What would a recruiting wrap-up be without a look towards next year? Duane Long checks in with a glance at what juniors to keep an eye on next season. Learn more about the Ohio prospects who will be candidates for Buckeye offers next year. 

Darrell Hazell

Big First Year - One of three new assistant coaches on this year's OSU team was wide receivers coach Darrell Hazell. After coming over from Rutgers, Hazell's impact was felt as his work on special teams was instrumental in a tremendous turnaround, and he has also left his mark on the receivers as well. Charles Babb delivers a lengthy Q&A with the OSU assistant. 

Santonio Holmes

Coming Back For More - Many people assumed that 2004 would be the final season at OSU for wide receiver Santonio Holmes. Over time though, things changed for Holmes, and he decided to return to OSU for at least one more year in a Buckeye uniform. Read about what drove his decision in this issue.  

Nate Salley

Salley Heading Into Senior Year - It seemed like it was just yesterday when safety Nate Salley signed on to come up from Ft. Lauderdale to play with Ohio State. Now, Salley heads into his last season with the Buckeyes and hopes to make an impact as big as one of his crushing hits. Dave Biddle has the story on this key player for the Buckeyes this year.

Craig Krenzel

Fourth Quarter - Classic Brewing - In the next segment of his look back at the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, Steve Helwagen looks at the fourth quarter -- which was where things really started to get interesting. Steve has the play-by-play and quotes from players about this quarter in this issue.  

Jim Foster

Women's Hoops Playing For All the Marbles - The OSU women's hoops team could be on the verge of some big things this year. Currently ranked No. 2 in the country -- their highest ranking ever -- the Buckeyes have their sights set on going all the way this year. Dave Biddle brings a quick look at this year's team headed into the tournament.  

Terence Dials

Dials Mans the Middle - Terence Dials has seen it all in his career for OSU -- highs, lows, injuries, coaching changes, and now, he is having his best season in a year where he and his team will be unable to play in the NCAA Tournament. Dave Biddle has the story on Dials' thoughts on his career so far, how things are going with new head coach Thad Matta, and where things will go for him in the future.
