"He wants to be a Buckeye. I mean that's the bottom line. It spreads the quarterback position out. Quarterback is a position where maturity plays a big, big part in production. You get some extra-ordinary people who can step in as a freshman, but in a lot of cases it is two or three years down the road once you are there and possibly involving a redshirt.
"I think it is a win-win situation. It gives Todd a little more chance to mature and to learn the system, it's not a rush situation. There's people in front of him where he can learn from. They are not all bunched together so there is a little separation. He's real comfortable with it. We are very, very comfortable with it. So as I said in essence, he is a commitment to the class of 2004. He will go on board next January."
Todd added that he was happy about it as well:
"Yes I am, definitely. I think it is a great opportunity for me."
