I tend to think this is the case, which is probably proven by this info:
He could just be referring to the ones on the roster already, but I took it to mean the ones in this class. Guess we'll find out come signing day!

Rivals $ story from the 10th:
Sanders' decision date carries significance
Exactly. Like Marc Givler $aid, the last true freshman LB to make a SIGNIFICANT impact at OSU was Katzenmoyer. Even Ryan Shazier, who everyone believes is a future All-American, needed time to adjust. To think that Mitchell or Johnson are going to step in and start from Day 1 is just wishful thinking. The staff sees them as the future. The staff see Sanders as the present. With Sanders, OSU could possibly get a kid with the maturity, strength, conditioning and talent to help out as soon as he steps on campus. Keep in mind he has been at Butler CC...where they literally groom guys to move on to D1 programs...and they play nothing but other football factories like Fort Scott, Iowa Western, Coffeyville and Garden City. This level of competition is vastly superior to even the big time HS ball Johnson and Mitchell play.
Larry Grant filled in nicely at LB for a couple of NC runs in '06 and '07. I think it's the same idea here. Right now they got two they can trust in Shazier and Perry and are looking to add a third.
Was hoping Grant could be that third, but a guy like Sanders is a good plan 1b policy for next year.

Tommy Sanders has #OhioState #Buckeyes offer. Is taking S.C. official visit
Agreed. It would be fantastic if one of the two could come in a start from the get-go, but that's just not likely. I think it might speak more to the staff's confidence in Curtis Grant to step up and take control in the present, as well. Regardless of the true reasons behind the offer, let's hope that we can bring in all three and let them duke it out for a starting spot!
Nice, I like it.
South Carolina was and is the competition.
Saw this on the Scout Forum...
He look pretty fast. Gets to the sidelines really well, and his team apparently loves to have him rush off the edge. I'd take him in a heart beat to go with Mitchell and Johnson
