The Ohio State football program is on fire right now on the recruiting trail landing the second top-100 skill guy this week and yet another 5-star wideout.
Ohio State football is wide receiver U and based on yet another five-star wide receiver commitment for the Buckeyes on Tuesday, that’s not going to change anytime soon.
As we have seen over the past few years, the Buckeyes are loaded with NFL talent at the skill positions, and having an Ohio State football wideout go in the first round of the draft is basically par for the course anymore. Last year, there were two.
Marvin Harrison Jr. would easily be a top-5 pick in the 2023 NFL draft if he were eligible. That’s how special he is. Instead, he’ll play another season for Ohio State football and torment college football corners for another season.
In terms of recruiting though, the Buckeyes’ momentum continues to be off the charts. Michigan stole the momentum last month by landing Jordan Marshall, the No. 3 player in the state of Ohio and a top-10 running back in the 2024 class.
That stung for Ohio State. Michigan also landed five-star quarterback Jadyn Davis, which made the Wolverines our recruiting winner for the month of March.
But, Ohio State football has answered by landing two four-star offensive linemen last week, before getting the No. 5 running back in the 2024 class, James Peoples, to commit on Sunday.
Then on Tuesday, to drive the point home further that Ohio State football recruiting isn’t going anywhere, the Buckeyes landed their second five-star receiver in 2024 — Mylan Graham.
Graham is ranked fifth at wide receiver in the 2024 class and is 27th overall according to the 247 sports composite rankings. He will join Jeremiah Smith, the No. 1 pass catcher and No. 2 overall prospect in the 2024 class, who committed to Ohio State football in December.
Ohio State has eight commitments right now in the 2024 class and the Buckeyes’ class ranks in the top five in the 247 sports team rankings. Four of those pledges have come in the past week and two were ranked in the top 69 of the rankings overall.
Michigan is ranked third right now and both teams are doing an impressive job on the recruiting trail. However, any talk of the Wolverines blowing past Ohio State in recruiting — was premature and the past week has been a reminder of that.
