1. Ryan Day, Ohio State
No, no, no … you’re Ohio State. If your recruiting class isn’t universally considered among the top five, it’s not a good year.
Are top prospects not quite into the Ryan Day experience yet? Maybe, but probably not.
Now that the dust has settled after the end of the Urban Meyer era, get ready for Day and the Buckeyes to make a whole lot of noise on Wednesday.
A few great players signed on in December, and as is it’s a class that most schools would dream of, now it’s time to push to be among the elite.
Ohio State only signed 16 players in the early signing period, and there was little waste. DE Zach Harrison is special, Garrett Wilson should be an excellent receiver, and Cade Stover will be a leader of the linebacking corps.
The problems so far? 1) That lack of bulk prospects, and 2) the five-star guys need to come in.
Both should change on Wednesday.
