With the dead period now over, here’s a look at a mock 2017 recruiting class for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Urban Meyer is collecting an absurd number of 5-star recruits. 


It’s a tall order to find another team with as much talent as the Buckeyes are packing right now in their 2017 class.

Urban Meyer’s staff has collected eight 5-star recruits and could be adding one more to that list on National Signing Day. Ohio State also boasts 20 4-star commits after losing a commitment from wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey.

With it being highly unlikely for Lindsey to return to the class, here’s a look at a mock Ohio State Buckeyes recruiting class.

Quarterback

Tate Martell, 5-Star

He’s not the biggest quarterback, but Martell reminds Meyer a lot of Chris Leak, his title-winning QB back at Florida.

Running Back

J.K. Dobbins, 4-Star

He’s listed as an athlete, but Dobbins will likely carry the rock out of the backfield.

Wide Receiver

Trevon Grimes, 5-Star

There are few things Grimes can’t do when healthy. However, he is recovering from a torn ACL.

Jaylen Harris, 4-Star

The Buckeyes are in a great spot to land Harris, especially after Lindsey left the class.

Tight End

NONE

Offensive Linemen

Wyatt Davis, 5-Star

He’s a bully in the trenches and will be a huge piece of the Ohio State running game moving forward.

Josh Myers, 5-Star

Myers has great footwork and will help keep a clean pocket for the Buckeyes.

Defensive Linemen

Chase Young, 5-Star

He’s an athletic defensive end with a great motor.

Marvin Wilson, 5-Star

The Buckeyes are battling Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma and USF for the No. 1 defensive tackle.

Haskell Garrett, 4-Star

Martell’s high school teammate, Garrett fires off the ball and is athletic on the defensive line as a 3-technique.

Jerron Cage, 4-Star

He’s not the most fundamentally sound defensive tackle, but he’s strong and has a great first step.

Jay Tufele, 4-Star

Ohio State is trying to fend off BYU, Michigan, Oregon, USC and Utah here.

Linebackers

Baron Browning, 5-Star

There’s a chance Browning plays inside linebacker for Ohio State, but he can do it all, really.

Pete Werner, 4-Star

Ohio State flipped Werner from Notre Dame. He’ll fit nicely next to Browning.

Defensive Backs

Jeffrey Okudah, 5-Star

He has the ability to play either cornerback or safety for the Buckeyes.

Shaun Wade, 4-Star

Wade is easily one of the best playmaking corners in the class — great ball skills.

Isaiah Pryor, 4-Star

He flashes great closing speed and can make plays in the box as well as plays on the ball.

Amir Riep, 4-Star

Riep is quite physical and has great ball skills.

Marcus Williamson, 3-Star

It’s hard to find any cornerback as quick out of his breaks as Williamson is.

Athletes

Brendon White, 4-Star

White could easily make the transition to wide receiver for the Buckeyes once he gets to Columbus.

Kickers

Blake Haubeil, 3-Star

He’s a 6-foot-3, 200-pound kicker. He’s connected from 61 yards out and had room to spare before.

Class Ranking Prediction: 3-5
