The Ohio State Buckeyes had definitively the best day of their 2015 recruiting class on Wednesday as they picked up a pair of blue-chip recruits, one of them being five-star defensive end Jashon Cornell out of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Cornell is one of the best weak-side defensive ends in the country and, along with his buddy Justin Hilliard who committed just minutes before, should provide a huge boost to Ohio State’s defense in the future.
Of course, after the second five-star commitment in the span of about ten minutes, the reactions on the internet were all over the place.
