Ohio State’s 2023 recruiting class

Ohio State has long been a recruiting juggernaut, but it never gets old going into the heart of SEC country and beating out the likes of Georgia and Alabama for a 5-star prospect. Larry Johnson just landed a big fish on the recruiting trail, and it would hardly be a surprise if Houston contributes as a freshman when he arrives in Columbus.

Houston gives Ohio State 21 commitments in its 2024 recruiting class, which is ranked No. 2 in the nation on the Composite. OSU fans can get a preview of what Houston brings to OSU by checking out his highlights below, via Hudl:
