Ohio State is in the running for 2 top talents from the 2023 class. High school teammates and 5-star recruits, Qua Russaw and James Smith released their Top 6’s on Friday.

Russaw is listed as a 5-star EDGE per the 247Sports Composite. He is the No.3 EDGE and No. 5 recruit from Alabama. The remaining schools inside his Top 6 are Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, and Alabama State.

Smith is a 5-star DL per the 247Sports Composite. He will also be choosing from Florida, Ohio State, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Alabama State. Smith is the No. 2 DL and the No. 1 player from Alabama.

It would be a huge grab for the Buckeyes if they can manage to reel in both Smith and Russaw. Ohio State currently has the No. 1 recruiting class in the B1G, and No. 4 overall.
