Urban Meyer made rebuilding the Ohio State offensive line his top priority once being named head coach. Meyer continued that process Monday night, with the commitment from Centerville (OH) offensive tackle Evan Lisle.

Ohio State added their fifth commitment to the 2013 recruiting class when the Buckeyes accepted the commitment of Centerville (OH) offensive tackle Evan Lisle.

"Evan has committed to Ohio State," the players father, Steve Lisle, confirmed to Scout.com Tuesday evening. "He called Coach Meyer tonight and told him the news. We are all very excited."

Meyer landed three offensive linemen in last year's recruiting class in the two months he was on the job. Kyle Dodson, Taylor Decker and Joey O'Connor were all committed to other schools before Meyer was able to convince them to switch to Ohio State.

The commitment of Lisle is yet another highly-ranked in-state player for Ohio State. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound, tackle also held offers from the likes of Alabama, Miami of Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, and others.

Scout.com will have more on the Lisle announcement later this evening, including quotes from the player.
