Jeremiah McClellan, WR- No. 146, 4-star
Brian Hartline is not done just yet. So far, he has two of the best receivers in the country committed in Jeremiah Smith and Mylan Graham, but they definitely would like to add a third and possibly fourth receiver to this group. Hartline seems to like this kid as he usually winds up getting whatever he wants in the receiver’s room.
Elijah Moore, WR- No. 436, 4-star
This would be more of a project for Hartline but I believe he loves the size and frame of Moore. At 6-4 and over 200 pounds, Hartline can develop this raw kid for a couple of seasons before letting him on the field.
Guerby Lambert, OT- No. 50 overall, 4-star
Justin Frye is trying to land a big fish this class and I believe he gets one here in Lambert. The Buckeyes were in early on him and hopefully that pays off. This one is coming down to Ohio State and Notre Dame.
There you have it Buckeye fans, my predictions for the remaining open slots in the 2024 recruiting class. If you’ve noticed there are a couple of big players I have missing here. Top amongst them is safety and No. 6 overall player KJ Bolden.
While it’s going to come close, I just believe it will be too hard to pry this Georgia native from the Bulldogs. I also have Justin Frye losing the battle for five-star offensive tackle Branden Baker from California. I think he stays on the west coast and picks USC.
But if Ohio State lands these 10 players that I’m predicting, it would leave them with 26 in the class. That’s a big number for Ohio State. It would also mean that the Ohio State football program would be very close to landing the No. 1 class in the nation by securing three more five-stars. This should be a fascinating finish to this class.
