The future Buckeyes are back at it. With the majority of the class of 2016 and 2017 Ohio State commits taking the field for the first time over the weekend, plenty shined under the lights, showing why they're considered among the top high school prospects in the country.

Just like last year Land-Grant Holy Land wants to hear from you. After having the chance to vote for Joe Burrow, Justin Hilliard, Nick Conner and the rest of the Elite '15, we are once again giving you the opportunity to have your voice heard.

With that being said, here are your five nominees for the Week 1 MVP. The poll is now open. Which OSU pledge performed well enough to grab your vote?:

George Hill

Northwayne gave Hill and Hubbard everything they had on Friday, but it still wasn't enough to walk away with the upset win. Rallying to pull out the victory, Hubbard's rushing attack was a huge part why the Eagles beat the Bobcats, 22-19.

Rushing for a total of 216 total yards as a team, the future Buckeye Hill racked up over half those yards for the Eagles. In the first game of his senior season, the four-star prospect carried the ball 13 times for 128 yards and a touchdown to help lead Hubbard to the win.

Luke Farrell

In Perry's season opener, the Pirates made easy work of Riverside, running away to a 42-12 opening win. Starring on both sides of the ball, Farrell was a force all night for Perry.

On offense, the 6'6 tight end finished the evening with four receptions for 53 yards. Playing along the defensive line, Farrell snatched up two quarterback sacks and also forced a fumble on Friday.

Bruce Judson

Judson, a class of 2017 pledge showed off his elusiveness and speed on Friday. Although he lines up at quarterback for Cocoa (FL), It wasn't his arm, but Judson's legs that led his squad to a 24-7 win over Palm Bay.

The four-star rated junior rushed for 149 yards and scored all three of the Tigers touchdowns, which included a 58-yard scamper.

Tuf Borland

Suiting up in sloppy conditions, the future Buckeye linebacker and his Boilingbrook (IL) teammates never got their traction, falling to Glenbard West by a final score of 28-7 on Saturday.

In the game, which was delayed by an hour cause of lighting, Borland was one of the only bright spots all evening for Boilingbrook. Finding himself around the ball quite a few times, the senior standout finished with 15 total tackles including two tackles for a loss.

Tristen Wallace

Playing live on ESPNU on Saturday, things didn't go as planned for Wallace and DeSoto (TX) (Dontre Wilson's old high school). Getting slapped around for most of the ball game by Arlington Martin, Wallace finally got the DeSoto offense going in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't enough to lead his team to a win.

After only having 65 yards of passing at halftime, Wallace battled back to finish the game with 484 yards through the air. In the 46-26 loss to Martin, Wallace might not have played his best game under center, but passed for three touchdowns, including scores from 76 and 86 yards out, anyways. The dual-threat quarterback also rushed for a score in the upset loss.
