Weird story out of Ohio State...
http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=384313Less than two weeks after giving Ohio State an oral commitment, All-State linebacker Alex Anzalone has informed Urban Meyer's staff that he will not be attending the school.
Anzalone, one of the most sought-after football recruits in the nation, de-committed Friday afternoon after disturbing news surfaced that a Buckeyes fan who gained access to players and recruits is a convicted sex offender.
The sex offender, Charles Eric Waugh of Kentucky, has been reaching out to Ohio State players and recruits, personally and via social media.
He made contact with Anzalone during a recruiting visit to Columbus, Ohio, April 21. A photograph of Waugh with Anzalone and two other recruits was posted on a fan website, as were other photographs of the sex offender with a Buckeyes player and the school mascot, Brutus.
"There's a disconnect between what Alex thought was there (at Ohio State) and what is actually there," said his father, Dr. Sal Anzalone.
Anzalone and his father spoke to Ohio State assistant coach Luke Fickell Friday afternoon to express their concerns and to de-commit.
"Something's just not right at Ohio State," Sal Anzalone said. "It's not for him."

"John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE
Big 12 Conference commissioner
Bob Bowlsby is apparently diving right into the deep end of the conference
expansion pool. I was told that “back channel” contact is currently taking place
with five high major schools, with regards to joining the Big 12 conference.
These lines of communication have been opened with Clemson, Maryland, Florida
State, Georgia Tech, and Notre Dame."
