The Ohio State football team is currently sitting at sixteen verbal commitments for its 2012 recruiting class as Urban Meyer takes the helm. Of those commitments, Canton (Ohio) GlenOak running back Bri'onte Dunn seems to be the most fluid as he has been making unofficial visits throughout the fall, most notably to Michigan. The four-star prospect is one of the main priorities for Meyer as he settles into his new job and the workhorse back received a call from the new Buckeye coach on Monday evening.

"The conversation was good," said Dunn. "He just introduced himself and talked to me about everything that was going on. I think he's coming up and visiting me next week (at the school) so I'm going to have some questions to ask him."

Some of the questions that Dunn may have for Meyer may not be answered for at least a week or two as Meyer works on assembling his coaching staff. Meyer did make it clear though that Dunn is a valued recruit on his board.

"He said that Ohio State is going back to the top," Dunn explained. "He just basically said that he wanted me and that when he gets his staff in and his offensive coordinator and everything that he was going to call me back and talk about (Dunn's role in the offense)."

This past Saturday, Dunn was in Ann Arbor on an unofficial visit as he watched Michigan defeat Ohio State.

"That was a good experience because I've never been to an Ohio State and Michigan game at Michigan," he said. "He was a good atmosphere and it was a good game."

Moving forward, Dunn is looking to take at least a couple of his official visits. He should also be getting a chance to speak with a few coaching staffs during the open period in December as coaches can now come to the school and talk to him.

"My plan is to get these questions answered that I need to be answered and then take my visits," he explained. "Michigan and Ohio State for sure (will get visits) and I'm supposed to go visit USC, they're coming up to the school tomorrow."

As always, Dunn was asked to put his commitment status in his own words.

"I'm still committed to Ohio State," he said. "I've got a lot of things to do and a lot of questions that need to be answered."

Dunn also added that he is still up in the air on whether or not he will enroll early.
