Ohio State adds quarterback for '09 class

Ohio State added a quarterback after all.

Spurned by Tajh Boyd and told "No, thanks," by Austin Boucher, Ohio State picked up a commitment from Kenneth Guiton, a 6-2, 178-pound quarterback from Houston. Guiton steps into the No. 3 quarterback spot behind Terrelle Pryor and Joe Bauserman.

"I never thought I would get an offer from Ohio State; it really surprised me," Guiton said. "It came out of the blue."

This was a much needed pickup for Ohio State, which would have had a hard time entering 2009 with only two scholarship quarterbacks.
