Why Ohio State doesn’t recruit SEC type Def tackles?

Hey, Doug: Ohio State’s biggest need every year is defensive tackle. The SEC is loaded with big, agile tackles who make it to the NFL. Why don’t the Bucks start to heavily recruit the South for these type of players? I think this is a glaring weakness that needs to be addressed. — Jerry Tamulewicz, Richfield, Ohio
Hey, Jerry: Since 2002, Ohio State has recruited 15 players who wound up playing defensive tackle or were expected to play there.
