Stan Drayton's toy chest is filled with novelties. That chest was locked, though, upon the departure of Ohio State's four senior offensive linemen.

Who holds the key to the Buckeyes' toy box, a deep arsenal of weapons not suitable for children of all ages? It could be a crop of five teenage behemoths.

"Our toys are very useless until we take care of that front, the front five guys we played behind," Drayton said on Wednesday, the day the Buckeyes officially signed five offensive line recruits.

Marcelys Jones (Glenville) and Kyle Trout (Lancaster) have already enrolled at Ohio State. Jamarco Jones (Chicago) called Urban Meyer on Tuesday night to seal his commitment. Demetrius Knox (Forth Worth, Texas) and Brady Taylor (Columbus) also committed to Ohio State.

Meyer said Wednesday "two of the five" need to be on the Buckeyes' two-deep once the season rolls around.

"Of the five, the two that I see the maturity -- Jamarco Jones and Demetrius Knox are guys that I would like to see," Meyer said. "Typically you don't put freshmen in there early, but these guys got mature bodies and they're fairly mature young men."

The Buckeyes are scrounging for bodies along the line following the departures of the four seniors: left tackle Jack Mewhort, left guard Andrew Norwell, center Corey Linsley and right guard Marcus Hall. Junior right tackle Taylor Decker, the only returning starter, will shift to the left side. Beyond that, the Buckeyes are left with loads of inexperience, a partial result of having only two offensive linemen in last year's recruiting class.

"At Ohio State, we're not just going to sign a guy to sign a guy and fill a spot," said offensive coordinator Tom Herman. "If we don't think he can help us win a national championship, we're not going to sign him. Those guys weren't out there at toward the end of recruiting last year, so that put us in a dire need of urgency this year."

Quarterback Braxton Miller could be one of five senior starters on offense, along with tight end Jeff Heuerman and receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer. Darryl Baldwin would be the fifth, and would be the only senior along the offensive line. Meyer said he had Baldwin presently penciled in as the starter at right tackle.

Miller will have plenty of weapons at his disposal, with sophomore Ezekiel Elliott likely succeeding Carlos Hyde as the starting tailback and speedsters Curtis Samuel and Dontre Wilson joining and rejoining the fold. In what developed into a read-option-heavy offensive attack last season, Miller accounted for more than 3,100 yards of offense and 36 touchdowns.
