    Looking at this list and I'm drooling. The 2018 class could be almost as good(on paper) as the 2017 one. And slightly bigger as well. It seems like GA will be hit hard again by the staff. Hopefully this year we land a few more than a few years ago when we made GA a big target and whiffed

    I'm sure I missed some names....likely would've been easier to list those that Ohio State hasn't offered.

    Class of 2018 Rivals 100: Seven new five-stars, movement in Top 10

    Great to see Carman get the recognition he deserves after a great season, huge jump for Snead as well. And I realize that Gaoteote is ranked pretty high but no idea how he cannot be ranked a five star bare minimum. In my opinion, he is the top player in the country.

    A lot of very talented SoFL DBs. I want to snatch at least one of the bunch.
    So much OH talent as well. This class could be very well as strong as 2017, and a great complement for it. And the fact that Jalen Gill missed is entire season, yet is still at #39, says a lot about his talent and the respect that evaluators have for him

    Snead must've had a pretty good season to jump like that, from watching his last film I thought he was ranked about right, so I'm giddy to see his new film, and this is a case of trust the staff
    because I know his commitment caught me off guard, and at the time I was hoping for Gill or Slade, I also liked TJ Pledger.

    Dirksen is a guy who I thought would get a look before he committed to ND. I don't think it would matter if OSU circled back around, he seems pretty locked in on ND, which is great for him. I have Carman and Oats in this class. Gant is trending our way as well. Smith and Hawkins are guys OSU can get if they want...but the way they are amassing DL talent they may be forced into a decision sooner rather than later. I like Xavier Henderson a lot...MSU is getting a good one there. Peters is still on the radar and I think Meechi Harris and JoJo Scates will continue to be evaluated. Blue is another anomaly to me...not sure what is going on there.
