    Hard to say but OSU currently has 24 true frosh and 21 red shirt frosh the most in the country. And they all average out to 4 stars. I could see 1-2 playing immediately though.

    I'm not sure what you think about this season but even with all of the inexperience imo the Bucks will be good. That team up North should be right there in the hunt for the Big10 title but I still like the Bucks and a possible p/o shot.
    Nothing but the top within the next 5 years and more. No one can say how many (if any) NC's with all of the other top teams but OSU should be right there in the mix.

    With the likes of Bama, Clemson and FSU (who are also cleaning up w/ great recruiting) I couldn't predict that many. I do think OSU will be in the hunt 4-5 titles is a bit much, jmo. I do like the way you're thinking though ...

    Class is currently ranked #1 in the country with a long way to go.
    I read that Wade may visit Ann Arbor.

    When you're a top 10 kid you honestly should milk the cow as long as you can. Wade is probably most likely to leave if anyone does, but I'm hoping for good news from another corner in a few weeks regardless. I would love to have both though, Wade is legit.

    2018 I don't get too excited about kids that far away though. Still I hope he comes.

    Emory Jones was at FNL in that class, I say he's the next 2018 commit.

    But the 2017 class is loaded with the number 5 player (Okudah), #7 (Peoples-Jones), #9 (Akers), #10 (Browning), #11 (Holmes), #20 (Grimes), #32 (Lindsey) who the Buckeyes have a realistic chance at all of them! There's a few more guys that they could end up with but there's limited spots and I only looked at the top 50.


    I think OSU ends up with the number one class in the end unless Nick Saban gets like the top 3 players

    OSU will get at least 2 of those 2017 names. 3 is realistic, 4 would be forget about it.
