Anderson Russell of Atlanta, Georgia came up to Ohio State on an official visit this weekend and left a Buckeye. Duane Long has some quotes from the latest commitment.

Ohio State landed a commitment from defensive back Anderson Russell of Atlanta, Georgia today. The Marist High School product talked about his visit.

"It went beautifully," Russell said. "I committed. I'm going to be a Buckeye."

Russell is sure of his choice and will not take any more trips.

"No more visits," Russell said. "I'm done with it. I can't wait to get up there and start working out with the other guys."

Russell is moving a long way from home, but it does not seem to be a problem.

"I talked to my parents," he said. "They're both fine with it. They just asked me to be sure that's what I wanted to do, and I am."

Russell was hosted by two future defensive backfield teammates.

"Brandon Mitchell and Nate Salley," he said. "They were the best."

Russell is the 13th commitment to Ohio State's 2005 recruiting class. Ohio State and Duke were his final two choices.
