To understand the future of the Big Ten, look to Texas.
Not for the Longhorns to come aboard, but for the three recruits from that state -- linebacker Mike Mitchell, quarterback J.T. Barrett and running back Dontre Wilson -- that Ohio State grabbed. All were ranked by Rivals.com as among the top 20 players in Texas.
Wilson, a four-star speedster who flipped from Oregon after coach Chip Kelly left for the NFL, became the 24th pledge to Ohio State's class when he announced his choice on the Dallas TV news Monday night. National Signing Day is on Wednesday, and the Buckeyes may be done or could have another player to add.
