National Signing Day, the day when high school kids can make their verbal commitments official, is Wednesday, but that hasn’t stopped Ohio from still trying to add a few more last minute recruits.
Scout.com is reporting that Cleon Aloese, a defensive tackle from Tafuna High School in American Samoa, has given Ohio his verbal commitment over the weekend. The 6-foot-1-inch, 290-pound defensive lineman brings Ohio’s total number of verbal commits to 18 along with two JUCO linemen who already signed their Letters of Intent.
Aloese’s commitment won’t be binding until he signs his NLI, but with his verbal Ohio now has a total of six defensive line recruits for the 2013 class.
