On the "Bobcat Athletics" half of WOUB's Sportsbeat (Thursdays at 6 p.m. on WOUB-AM 1340), we talked to Rivals.com's Josh Helmholdt about Ohio football's recruiting class, then revisited men's basketball's win over NIU and reviewed Akron's hiring of Jim Tressel. *Disclaimer: The views and opinions shared on Sportsbeat are not necessarily those of WOUB*

Bobcat football hauled in 19 recruits on National Signing Day, as high school football players from all over the country made their college choices. We talked about local recruits with Rivals.com's Josh Helmholdt. Helmholdt had high praise for the recruiting work of Frank Solich's staff.

Also, in the audio above, our reporters talk about men's basketball's win over Northern Illinois and chat about Akron's hiring of former Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel to an academic position.
