1. Ohio State Buckeyes
5* players: 1
4* players: 14
3* players: 11
Ohio State nearly cracked the top five nationally, led the conference with 14 4-star recruits and were the only team in the conference to land a 5-star player. That pretty much sums up how this class ranks so high.
As if Urban Meyer needed to get deeper and more intriguing at quarterback, he went ahead and added the No. 9-ranked dual-threat quarterback in Joe Burrow and then got a commitment from 4-star quarterback/athlete Torrance Gibson as well.
Hey Darron Lee and Raekwon McMillian, you guys need some more competition…at least that’s got to be the message sent with the additions of 5-star outside linebacker Justin Hilliard and 4-star linebacker Nick Conner.
Just for good measure, the Buckeyes threw in the No. 1-ranked long snapper too.
This class was nationally relevant and nearly hit the top 5 of the recruiting rankings, and even though I’m not the biggest believer in the rankings as the end all, be all…it’s hard to deny the fact that OSU amassed the best and most talent in this class.
