The Buckeyes have added another piece to the 2016 recruiting class puzzle. After visiting the Ohio State campus over the weekend, four-star running back Antonio Williams has committed to Ohio State, per 247's Steve Wiltfong.

Williams, a former longtime Wisconsin pledge, joins Ohio State's class after the decommitment of George Hill. With fellow future Buckeye Kareem Walker visiting other programs, the North Carolina native will also help OSU shore up the running back spot for years to come.

With the 5'11, 210-pound, Williams now in the fold the Buckeyes class of 2016 is back at 19 verbal commitments. Considered not just a standout at his position, but one of the top recruits in the senior class he is currently ranked as the seventh running back, and 211th overall prospect in 2016, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Williams definitely backs up all his accolades on the field. After rushing for well over 2,000 yards as a junior, Antonio is off to a fast start to his senior season. Through seven games he has already surpassed 1,800 yards, and 18 touchdowns for the North Stanly High Comets.
