The day has finally come. Friday Night Lights camp will take place for Ohio State tonight inside of Ohio Stadium as it plays host to many of the best prospects in the country. Not only are we expecting some fireworks tonight, but this week has already been exceptional for the defending national champions as they have gained two tremendous recruits for the 2016 and 2017 classes.

Bosa is a Buckeye, again

In case you missed it, although it'd be hard, yesterday, the Buckeyes picked up the biggest commitment of the 2016 class up to this point. 5-star DE Nick Bosa of Ft. Lauderdale Florida's St. Thomas Aquinas gave his pledge to Ohio State and gave Buckeye Nation the shot heard around the world. Bosa is the eighth-ranked player in the country and the second overall player in Florida. The Buckeyes were always the clear leader for the little brother of current Buckeye Joey Bosa but after taking visits to his home state schools Florida and Florida State, Nick knew it was time to go public with his decision. Buckeye fans are already well aware of what the younger Bosa will bring to the table when he suits up in the Scarlet and Gray, but knowing the type of play coming from Joey, expect nothing less from his younger brother Nick.

Recruits react to Bosa's commitment

Not only were Buckeye fans excited with the pledge of Nick Bosa, but many recruits also expressed their feelings on the 5-star's decision to play his college ball in Columbus. Current commit in the 2016 class Terrell Hall of Washington, DC weighed in as another prospect on the 2016 defensive line class. Also, a top fifty prospect in the country in Antwuan Jackson of Ellenwood, GA gave his thoughts on the commitment of Bosa to Ohio State. The Buckeyes are neck and neck right now with Auburn as the leader for Jackson. If the Buckeyes can land Jackson as a top DT prospect, the 2016 defensive line class would be one for the ages. Good news for the Buckeyes' efforts as Antwuan will be in Columbus for another three day visit as he will be at Friday Night Lights camp tonight.

Bucks earn top class in 2016

In sticking with the trend, the Buckeyes jumped to the top recruiting class in the country yesterday, according to 247sports.com, with the help of Nick Bosa's commitment. Leaping over Florida State and LSU, Ohio State now owns the top class in not only 2016, but in 2017 as well with eight current commits. If 247sports.com rankings weren't enough, Rivals.com also gave the nod for the Buckeyes as the top recruiting class in the country. Needless to say, the future is bright at Ohio State.

2017 OL earns offer

Even though Ohio State has two commits on the offensive line already in the 2017 class, Urban Meyer and staff never rest when looking for the best prospects in the country. Late Wednesday night, Jedrick Wills of Lexington, KY received his offer from the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect is currently ranked as the top prospect in the state of Kentucky for the 2017 class and checks in as the tenth-best prospect at his position according to 247sports.com. Right now, the Crystal Ball has a 100 percent prediction of Wills staying home and suiting up for the Wildcats. However, an offer from Ohio State is sure to raise some attention.

Webb attending FNL

On May 28, Ohio State offered MJ Webb of Madison, GA. Webb, a 2017 DE prospect, is a 6'3, 260-pound recruit that poses a threat to any opposing quarterback. Currently, Webb checks in at as the fourth-best prospect at his position in 2017 and is a top 25 recruit in the Peach State. Last night, MJ announced that he will be making the trip to Columbus to attend Ohio State's high profile Friday Night Lights camp.
