Five-star OG Wyatt Davis picks Ohio State over Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame
For about one day, Alabama moved ahead of Ohio State in the 247sports 2017 class rankings.
It appears that was short-lived.
Why? The Buckeyes got a commitment from five-star offensive guard Wyatt Davis, who picked OSU over the likes of aforementioned Alabama, Michigan and Notre Dame on Friday.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl invitee announced his decision days after taking unofficial visits to Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State.
The Bellflower, Calif. native is a major get for an already loaded 2017 group. Davis is the No. 1-rated guard and the No. 14 player overall in the 2017 class. He’s the third five-star commitment for the Buckeyes, and the second on the offensive line.
OSU now has three offensive linemen and 14 commits total in its 2017 class. Davis, however, was the first guard to join the group. He became the Buckeyes’ eighth top-100 recruit for 2017.
With the pledge from Davis, Ohio State reclaimed its spot back atop the 2017 class rankings.
It remains to be seen if Davis’ commitment will influence other five-star OSU targets and California natives Darnay Holmes and Tyjon Lindsey.
The Buckeyes’ 2017 quarterback, Tate Martell, approved of the news:
