For the second straight day Ohio State's 2016 recruiting class has gained a high-profile commitment. A day after four-star linebacker Keandre Jones reportedly flipped from Maryland to the Buckeyes, four-star wide receiver Binjimen Victor committed to the Buckeyes early Monday afternoon. With Victor's commitment and the reported pledge of Jones, Ohio State's 2016 class is now 20-strong, 19 if you don't count Jones.

Victor, who stands nearly 6-4 and weighs 177 pounds, is ranked as the No. 12 wide receiver in his class by the 247Sports Composite. The Coconut Creek High School (Fla.) product collected 43 scholarship offers, but selected Ohio State over Tennessee and West Virginia. Victor joins fellow U.S. Army All-American Austin Mack (who is already enrolled) as the two pure wide receiver prospects in the Buckeyes' 2016 class.
With Corey Smith's sixth year of eligibility still up in the air and the departures of Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall, and Braxton Miller to the NFL, it's feasible that Victor could play right away if he shows well in fall camp.
As a senior, Victor had 42 catches for 846 yards and 15 touchdowns. Highlights of Victor are posted below:
