Epitropoulos Discusses Buckeye Commitment
Frank Epitropoulos is the sixth commitment for Ohio State in their 2012 recruiting class. The three-star recruit notified Buckeye head coach Jim Tressel of his decision Monday morning. "I did commit to Ohio State today (Monday)," Epitropoulos stated. "I chose Ohio State because I believe that is the best football program in the country, and one with a great coaching staff. I really feel like I can help them at wide receiver and occasionally punting." Epitropoulos, 6-foot-3, 195-pounds, joins Joshua Perry, Warren Ball, Kyle Kalis, Jacoby Boren and Brionte Dunn in the current class for the Buckeyes. He is currently ranked as the number-24 prospect in Ohio, in what is considered a strong year in-state. With his father, John, and an uncle, Ernie, having played for Ohio State, it seemed natural that Epitropoulos would choose to play college football for the Buckeyes. "Obviously, my parents are very happy with my decision, and they are very proud today," he admitted. Epitropoulos, 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, does a little bit of everything for Upper Arlington, and is ranked as a three-star recruit. As a wide receiver, he caught 29 passes for 500 yards and five touchdown catches in 2010. He also starred at free safety, and averaged over 40 yards per punt.
