Dunn always knew where he wanted to be

It now looks like Ohio State's class of 2012 running back recruiting is in the book with the commitment by Canton (Ohio) GlenOak running back Bri'onte Dunn to the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder joins Warren Ball in the class and gives the Buckeyes a total of four commits for the class.

Dunn recently picked up his Ohio State offer and it seemed as if it was only a matter of time before he would make it official for Ohio State. The newest Buckeye was a camper at the Ohio State senior advanced camp during the summer and showed off his skills in front of the Ohio State coaching staff.

During the 2010 high school football season all Dunn has done is go off night after night with huge rushing games and unofficially has close to 1100 total yards and 14 touchdowns according to some unofficial stat trackers.

Dunn held offers from Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati and was getting noticed by many other major programs but interest may have been slow by some knowing that Ohio State was going to be tough to beat when it all came down to it.

By the time that Dunn enrolls at Ohio State the Buckeyes will have lost current starters Brandon Saine and Dan Herron but there will be plenty of competition with the current crop of running backs on the roster. Ohio State is not taking a running back in the class of 2011 however so that should give both of the 2012 running backs a little bit of separation from the bulk of the class.

Dunn's GlenOak team will face off with Canton McKinley on Friday night and will get to go against current 2011 commit Steve Miller and 2012 target Se'Von Pittman.

We will have more on Dunn's commitment to Ohio State including reaction from the newest Buckeye himself later this afternoon.
