COLUMBUS — National Signing Day ended for Ohio State Wednesday evening with 23 players inking their letter of intent with the Buckeyes.

"We've got a little bit of everything, as we like to do," Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel said Wednesday. "We've got guys who are versatile, balanced ... guys who have done a lot of different things.

"They are guys who we feel very good about who they are, feel good about the skills that they have, we feel real good that they had great interest in Ohio State, and they meshed well with the people who are here. That's really what it's all about."
