ESPN bumps Ohio State’s recruiting class to No. 1, others follow

ESPN today moved Ohio State’s 2016 recruiting class to No. 1 in the country and websites like Scout, 247 and Rivals followed.

Ohio State has soared to No. 1 in our @ESPNInsider recruiting rankings.

Rest of the top 40:

This shift likely comes from the Buckeyes landing two key recruits this week: four-star wide receiver Binjimen Victor and four-star quarterback and former Maryland commit Dwayne Haskins. Ohio State is also expected to add five-star defensive end Nick Bosa, brother of former defensive star Joey who is next headed to the NFL.

That said, with National Signing Day happening in two weeks, expect this list to shift even more soon.

But also count on Ohio State making another run at a national championship in 2016.
