247Sports Releases Final 2014 Rankings

Curtis Samuel has continued to move up recruiting boards.

As the 2014 recruiting year comes to an end, Ohio State's prestigious "Dream '14" recruiting class sees itself moving all over the national recruiting ranking boards, finalized today by 247Sports.com. Ohio State has a whopping 17 players listed in the Top247, the rest of the Big Ten has a combined 23. 

Two of Ohio State's commitments, Sam Hubbard and Erick Smith, were among the biggest movers in the Top 247, moving up 100 spots to No. 123 and 226 spots to No. 61, respectively. Of Smith, 247 analysts were especially complimentary.

Smith was among the biggest risers at the Army Bowl due to his ability to play cornerback and his aggressiveness in run support. We won’t be surprised if he turns into one of Ohio State’s top commitments for 2014.

Hubbard's athleticism at 6-foot-6 and 225 pounds was what caught the eye of analysts and prompted his own skyrocketing up the charts.

Regardless of what position he plays at the next level, Hubbard is too athletic at 6-foot-6 not to make a big move. He is up 100 spots to No. 123.

Here are the current commits in the Top 247.

#13 Dante Booker 
#28 Raekwon McMillan

Texas A&M has three of the country's top six prospects, including top-ranked DE Myles Garrett, No. 5 Kyle Allen and No. 6 Speedy Noil.
