We all know that this 2016 Ohio State class is off and running as one of the top classes in the country at this point. As the cycle continues to push forward the Buckeyes should further extend their grasp on claiming the mythical recruiting national championship. With so many prospects on board already, there isn't a whole lot of room to jump on the bandwagon. The 2016 class receives a ton of talk, and rightfully so because of the talent it possesses and the fact it's the next group of athletes that can sign with a college. However, the 2017 class should have just as much firepower. On Tuesday, Scout.com released some five-star prospects for that class and it included current offensive line commit Josh Myers. Myers is one of the top ranked offensive linemen in the country and there is no reason to think he will waver from his commitment throughout his process. Myers was the only current commit on the list of 15 that Scout put out, but also making an appearance on it was wide receiver prospect Trevon Grimes. Grimes, from St. Thomas Aquinas, is rated the top receiver in the country and thought to be a long-time Ohio State lean.
The five-star list wasn't the only thing released by Scout, but the overall top 100, for 2017, is fresh in print as well. Buckeyes coming in on that list were Myers, of course, Shaun Wade, and Marcus Williamson. You can check out the entire list here.
Buckeyes make final 4 for 2016 WR
2016 wide receiver Hasise Dubois released his top four yesterday and it was a list that included Ohio State. Dubois is a prototypical receiver, standing at 6'4, and presents a mismatch for just about every defensive back that covers him. Hailing from New Jersey, Dubois is being cornered hard from most of the East Coast powers, but likes the fact that Ohio State is recruiting him as a receiver. Some schools like him lining up at the safety position. Urban Meyer has been to his school earlier this year and Dubois also visited for a game last fall. The interest is definitely there on both sides and this one could come down to if the Buckeyes have enough open spots left.
Mitchell stays mum
Ahmir Mitchell, another 2016 wide receiver and longtime OSU target, has made it apparent that he will be going stealth on the recruiting trail until his decision is made. Mitchell, from New Jersey, has held the Buckeyes in high regard throughout his recruiting process, but also has interest in Michigan, Notre Dame, and Rutgers. Mitchell is a consensus four-star prospect who holds 16 offers as we stand now. He's set to attend Ohio State's Friday Night Lights camp in July and that could be the last time the Buckeyes have to try and sway him.
