NATIONAL SIGNING DAY

Buckeyes land pair of top prospects

Vonn Bell, James Clark to join Ohio State

BLADE STAFF

COLUMBUS -- Ohio State coach Urban Meyer backed up his reputation as one of the nation's top closers in recruiting as the Buckeyes landed a pair of top prospects today.

Five-star Georgia safety Vonn Bell announced he will attend Ohio State over Tennessee while four-star receiver James Clark chose the Buckeyes over home-state Florida.

The only remaining question mark in a 2013 class with 25 commits is running back Ezekiel Elliott, widely regarded as the top recruit in Missouri. The St. Louis native is a long-time OSU commit but recently visited Missouri, where his father played football. He will announce his decision at 5 p.m.

Earlier today, Maryland wide receiver Taivon Jacobs switched his commitment from Ohio State to his home-state Terrapins.
