10 Buckeyes looking at early entry to NFL

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Chimdi Chekwa has a big decision coming up, and it's not what to get with that gift card to an electronics store.

The Ohio State cornerback is among 10 juniors who have filed paperwork with the NFL Collegiate Advisory Committee to find out their status for next spring's draft. The information helps underclassmen determine if they should stick around for their senior season or if there is a market for their skills in the pros.

Coach Jim Tressel did not disclose the names of the juniors, but he did say they are starters. That would mean defensive ends Thaddeus Gibson and Cameron Heyward, linebackers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle, cornerbacks Chekwa and Devon Torrence, tailback Brandon Saine, wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher and offensive linemen Bryant Browning and Justin Boren.
