    Urban Meyer puts a lot of time in with his players on special teams.

    Cincinnati, Ohio native Drue Chrisman has made it official, signing his letter of intent nine months after making his verbal commitment to Ohio State. During his senior season, Chrisman averaged 46.4 yards per punt for a total of 789 yards -- including two touchbacks -- and also earned a number of honors including an invitation to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Chrisman also ranks as the 31st overall player in the state of Ohio for 2016, and the 769th-best nationally. He held six offers, including those from BYU, FSU and three other Big Ten schools coming off his senior season.

    Everyone knows the emphasis Urban Meyer places on the work of his special teams squad, and Chrisman is just the kid to step up and follow in the shoes of the Australian junior Cameron Johnston. At the time of his commitment, a big focus was placed on Chrisman's technical kicking ability as being a big draw for the Buckeye coaching staff.

    Scouting report

    "Drue Chrisman was named Kohl’s Professional Camp’s most collegiate-ready punter in his class and it shows on film. As a senior, he averaged 42.7 yards per punt on 23 punts. Kohl’s Camps described Chrisman by saying 'He earned our trust as a D1 scholarship ready punter. He has good size and outstanding repeatability. Chrisman's quick hands and clean drop allow him to generate great rotation and consistency. His tall frame allows him easily swing up and through the ball.' The punting spot should be Chrisman’s in his second year at Ohio State." -Christopher Jason
