Ohio State's class of 2010 doubled Tuesday afternoon when Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline defensive end Jamel Turner, a four-star recruit, picked the Buckeyes. Turner joins fellow Youngstown native J.T. Moore in the OSU recruiting class.

Four-star defensive end Jamel Turner of Youngstown (Ohio) Ursuline became the second member of Ohio State’s class of 2010 when he pledged his services to the Scarlet and Gray this afternoon.

Turner, a 6-2, 200-pound prospect with 4.78 speed in the 40-yard dash, becomes the second member of the class behind fellow Youngstown native J.T. Moore, who attends Boardman High School. Moore, a four-star outside linebacker, became the first member of OSU’s class in September just days after he officially received his offer.

Turner, who made 23 sacks as a sophomore, visited Ohio State to see the Buckeyes battle then-No. 3 Penn State on Oct. 25. He was named to Scout’s All-Ohio Championship team for this year’s state championships as Ursuline won the state title. Turner had 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks in the game against Findlay Liberty-Benton.

He chose OSU over schools like Illinois, Michigan State, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Wisconsin, all of whom had offered.
