Ohio State football’s 2019 class

Ohio State has just two commitments in the 2019 recruiting class, but both are from standout offensive linemen who are close to home for the Buckeyes.

Where Ohio State’s 2019 class ranks

Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class ranks No. 31 in the  247Sports composite team rankings. Of course, with just two commitments in the class, the Buckeyes are hard-pressed to rank very high in the team rankings at the moment. The good news is that they have the second-ranked class in the country among teams that have two or fewer commits, trailing only Auburn.

Position breakdown of the Buckeyes’ 2019 class

QB: 0/1-2

RB: 0/1-2

TE: 0/1

WR: 0/3-5

OL: 2/5-6

DL: 0/3-4

LB: 0/1-3

DB: 0/3-4

Ohio State’s target number for recruits remains extremely flexible with nearly a year until National Signing Day in 2019. The Buckeyes also don’t have a clear idea yet of their projected scholarship numbers for the 2019 class without knowing which players could leave the program between the start of spring football and the start of the 2018 season. There’s plenty of time for these projected numbers to change and adapt.

Geographic breakdown of the class

Ohio: 1 (Jacoby)

West Virginia: 1 (Nester)
