Nation's top receiver for 2021 class commits to Ohio State
Ohio State is in another stratosphere when it comes to the work on the recruiting trail right now!
On Friday, Emeka Egbuka announced his commitment to the Buckeyes with a video on his personal Twitter page. Egbuka is rated as the No. 1 wide receiver and No. 9 player nationally per the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
It was a heated recruiting race with some speculating Egbuka going with Oklahoma. But in the end, it is another big-time commit for Ryan Day and his staff.
Here’s Egbuka’s video:

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 190 lbs., Egbuka looks like a complete package and the real deal at receiver. He now joins four-star prospects Jayden Ballard (No. 8) and Marvin Harrison Jr. (No. 15) as top-15 wide receivers to commit to Ohio State for the class of 2021.
Beyond the wide receiving corps, Egbuka gives Ohio State five, 5-star recruits for 2021. The class is No. 1 in the B1G and is rated No. 2 nationally, behind just Alabama.
Considering Ohio State also has the top-rated class for 2022 early on, the Buckeyes appear to be poised to dominate the B1G for a while.
