Ohio State matches Michigan typo for typo

In a development that is almost too weird to be true, Ohio State has matched rival Michigan in total of known typos sent to a single recruit.

Less than a week after four-star running back Mike Weber of Detroit Cass Tech caused snickers across the Internet by posting a picture of a fake ESPN: The Magazine cover fashioned for him by Michigan recruiters and listing him as Michigan’s "All-Amercian" RB, Weber shared a similar error from Ohio State.

The irony was not lost on Weber, who reportedly has a top five including the Buckeyes and Wolverines along with Michigan State, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Maybe proofreaders will be the next big-ticket item in the college football recruiting arms race. 


After the authenticity of the Ohio State recruiting material came into question, Weber returned to Twitter to confirm it indeed came from a member of the OSU staff.
