Another thing to keep in mind is Wisconsin already has 3 other OTs committed in the 2012 class. OSU has 0. Early playing time is going to come a lot quicker at OSU than it is Wisconsin. If Wisconsin is good at one thing, it's loading up on O-lineman and letting them go through the S&C program. Usually don't see the field until their 3rd year (RS Sophomores).
Most certainly a look at our depth chart and the opportunity for early PT should be attractive to any OL prospect. I do not believe that either of these players stray as far away from home as Auburn nor do I think in the end that playing together will be that big of deal. I have felt all along that Dodson would elect not to be a Buckeye but that Diamond would select us. However with the Staff turmoil at Wiscy it could sway Dodson. I would think that if he elects to decommit it would be to be a Buckeye but just have to wait and see.
UPDATE: GOOD NEWS:
Patrick Miller, a 4* OT out of Florida committed to Auburn late yesterday. That give them two OTs for the 2012 class. Things are looking better and better for Diamond and Dodson coming to OSU.
I don't believe Dodson is coming. He has committed to Wisconsin and in spite of phone calls and visits......he is still publically committed to Wisconsin. That has not changed. That is his position and as such that is what I expect him to do. If he were going to switch I believe he wouldn't done so already.
Diamond is a mystery to me. He keeps his cards close to his vest. You want him to be a buckeye then hire an investigator to follow him around and when Auburn offers the cash, use it to blackmail him with the alternative being declared ineligable to play any college football anywhere.

I think both these players are enigmas. Diamond says he might re-open his recruitment? What does that mean? When did it close? He loves the attention and I don't think anything he says has any bearing on what he is thinking.
