Ohio State has the number 1 ranked recruiting class according to 247Sports, and have many ways to continue improving. But just how good is this class of future Buckeyes?
The answer is really good. Potentially scary good.
For most teams getting a player that is ranked inside the top 100 is considered a huge win. And make no mistake, that is a big-time get for Ohio State.
But when you talk about how many recruits the Buckeyes could have inside the top 10 things get into video game numbers.
Currently, Ohio State has three commitments ranked in the top ten with Jack Sawyer, Donovan Jackson, and TreVeyon Henderson pledging to play with the Buckeyes.
This is very impressive in and of itself considering that only one other player in the top ten has committed to a school (JC Latham who recently spurned Ohio State in favor of Alabama).
Things get crazier when you look at some of the other top ten commitments and where they are leaning.
The best recruit in the country is J.T. Tuimoloau out of Washington. He is currently being projected at becoming a Buckeye.
Then you have prospects leaning towards USC, Florida, and Oklahoma before you get to Emeka Egbuka also out of Washington.
The wide receiver is a heavy favorite to end up wearing scarlet and gray during his college career which would give Ohio State another top ten recruit.
The only other prospect in the top ten is currently a heavy Georgia lean.
So if we do some quick math, we have commitments or leans in the top ten with the following spread:
- Ohio State: 5
- Alabama: 1
- USC: 1
- Florida: 1
- Oklahoma: 1
- Georgia: 1
To say the Buckeyes have the potential to have a special 2021 class might be a bit of an understatement.
Ryan Day and company are on track to bring in a ridiculous class to go with a roster that is stacked with NFL talent at just about every position.
