Ohio State recruiting: The latest news on Ohio State’s next football class

Ohio State is just getting started with the 2019 recruiting class, but the Buckeyes are hot on the trail of many of the nation’s top prospects. The Buckeyes have only one commitment in the class to date, but plenty of top prospects have been visiting and staying in communication with Ohio State’s coaches. Here’s what to know about Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting:

Latest news for Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class

Ohio State football’s 2019 class

Ohio State has just one commitment in the 2019 recruiting class, coming from longtime pledge Doug Nester from Huntington (W.Va.) Spring Valley. Nester has been committed to Ohio State since Aug. 5, 2017.

Where Ohio State’s 2019 class ranks

Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class ranks No. 39 in the  247Sports composite team rankings. Of course, with just one commitment 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 top-ranked class in the country among teams that have only commit. Nester is ranked as the No. 52 player overall and the No. 8 tackle in 2019.

Position breakdown of the Buckeyes’ 2018 class

QB: 0/1-2

RB: 0/1-2

TE: 0/1

WR: 0/3-5

OL: 1/5-6

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.
