Ohio State enjoys drama-free day, secures one of nation's top recruiting classes
Ohio State did on Wednesday what Ohio State does: reload.
There were no flips. No drama. Just a recruiting class that should help keep the Buckeyes at the top of the Big Ten.
It was another monster recruiting class for the Buckeyes, who have the No. 2 recruiting class in the nation according to 247Sports. They landed Jack Sawyer, ESPN’s highest-ranked player in the country as well as Emeka Egbuka, 247Sports highest-ranked wide receiver.
Last season, Ohio State put together the fifth-best recruiting class in the nation.
The Buckeyes class includes five recruits rated as five-stars. This group also includes Kyle McCord, one of the nation’s top quarterbacks and the No. 25 prospect in the nation according to 247Sports.
Not surprisingly, the Buckeyes are the top class in the Big Ten. They also had the top recruiting class in the conference a season ago.
The state of Ohio led the way with six commits from their class.
The offensive and defensive line were the most-recruited position groups of this cycle by Ohio State, each unit adding three players to the Buckeyes already stacked roster.
Ohio State is No. 4 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll. They will play in the Big Ten Championship Game this Saturday against Northwestern.
With a win, they likely will make the College Football Playoff.
