Raiola is the No. 3 ranked QB and No. 1 player from Arizona for good reason per the 247Sports Composite. His father, Dominic Raiola, played OL for Nebraska from 1998 to 2000. He later got drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 2001 NFL Draft. He was also the 1st inaugural winner of the Rimington Award in 2000.

Here’s what Young had say about Ohio State’s big commit:

“What happening at Ohio State is that Ryan Day and Corey Dennis are recruiting their butts off,” said Young. “The way I wanna go at this is by mentioning the quarterbacks that have played for Ryan Day. He makes the decision to tap Dwayne Haskins to be the starter in 2018, which led to Joe Burrow going into the transfer portal. Then, he had Justin Fields transfer in from Georgia and developed him into a Heisman finalist, and 1st-round quarterback. Every quarterback that has started more than 1 game for Ryan Day, has ended up a 1st-round draft pick.”
