    Cordle helped anchor a line that allowed tailback Jon Carpenter to break the school's single-season rushing record. He earned first-team All-Ohio honors in Division I as a junior. He could be a darkhorse for a tOSU offer.

    Cordle the wrestler

    You have to assume tOSU stands a good chance with him considering Rob Carpenter is his coach and Bobby Carpenter is a soon to be star at tOSU.

    I think this is Cordle. Lancaster has a couple of big ass lineman so i had to guess at which one cordle is, but #55 i thought was the best so i hope its him?

    ** if this isnt cordle, again, let me know if anyone knows what # he really is and ill pull his pic off the cami

    osubux11- thanks for the Pix- can you give us any other feedback on Jim? it sounds like he has a good chance of being a Buck

    FYI- if you have other pictures that don't have a thread started go ahead and start a new one on the player i.e. Bryan Williams or Marcus Council

    Cordle was just offered by tOSU and they are his favorite. He will visit ND and ILL this weekend and hopes to make a decision soon.

    I agree that this one os probably just a matter of time. In my experience Lancaster is perhaps the most pro-OSU town I've seen. Rex Kern is a local legend around there.

    Last week, OL Jim Cordle of Lancaster, OH became the fourth Ohio player known to receive a Buckeye scholarship offer this year. It didn't take him long to become the third of those four players to accept the offer.

    "I was offered last week," Cordle said. "Ohio State was always my favorite. I had visits scheduled to Notre Dame and Illinois, and I wanted to honor them, so I went."

    The offers have started to come in for this outstanding prospect.

    "While I was away, Boston College and Kentucky came in with offers."

    Cordle will make it official tomorrow. What made him decide to become a Buckeye this quickly?

    "I just want to get it over with," he said. "Ohio State was the one I wanted, and once the offer came, I knew what I was going to do.

    "I will go down tomorrow with my coaches to practice, look Coach Tressel in the eye, shake his hand, and commit."

    Coach Tressel has had a positive effect on Cordle's family as well.

    "Coach Tressel and his staff were just the classiest people," Cordle's mother said. "When we went down for junior day, they came around and said hello to everybody."

    Cordle (6-5, 285) is one of the Midwest's finest offensive linemen and one of Ohio's top ten overall prospects as rated by Duane Long in the upcoming spring issue of Ohio High magazine. A first team All-Ohio performer in Division I in 2003, Cordle emerged as Ohio's #2 rated OL behind Lakewood St. Edward's Alex Boone, who has also committed to Ohio State.

    Cordle is as good a run blocker as Boone, if not better. I will go so far as to say this: if I were rating Ohio OLs regardless of class, based on last year Boone would have been no. 2 one and either 2004 signee Ben Person or Cordle would no. 2. He is that good."

    According to his coach, Rob Carpenter, Cordle is so quick off the ball he sometimes gets called for illegal motion.

    “He carries his weight really well,” Carpenter said. “He is just now getting into a weightlifting program. He has only been lifting regularly for less than a year. He was at the Ohio State camp last summer and received a top lineman award.”

    Cordle joins Boone and DB Jamario O'Neal of Cleveland Glenville as early Buckeye commitments and continues Ohio State's strong beginning to this year's recruiting class. Cordle plans on majoring in education at Ohio State.
