COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State is back where Urban Meyer wants it, on top of the 2018 recruiting rankings.
With the commitment of four-star offensive lineman Matthew Jones on Saturday, the Buckeyes passed Miami for the No. 1 spot in the 247Sports composite 2018 class rankings.
Jones is the 10th four-star prospect to commit to Ohio State, and the 10th top-100 national prospect out of 14 commitments.
Ohio State also has commitments from five-star prospects defensive tackle Taron Vincent, defensive end Brenton Cox and quarterback Emory Jones.
Ohio State has been in this spot before, and seemed primed to sign the No. 1 class during the 2017 recruiting cycle.
It’s the one thing Meyer has yet to do at Ohio State.
If you think where a class ultimately ends up ranked isn’t important, know that Meyer cares.
Ohio State’s class carries an individual average player rating of 95.34 in the 247Sports composite ratings.
