247Sports released their top 100 for the class of 2017 today, and it contains quite a few Buckeye targets.

The number one player overall, as expected, was LSU commit Dylan Moses, who has been at or near the top for months. The Buckeyes have at least 12 targets on the list, and I spoke with a couple of them about the initial rankings.

The top Ohio prospect on the list is Josh Myers, an offensive tackle from Miamisburg who comes in at No. 3 on the list. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound prospect joins Moses and A.J. Epenesa as the only five-star recruits on the list.

"It is a huge blessing," Myers told 11W. "I am just enjoying this whole experience, it is truly is a good epxerience and just a huge blessing." Myers also said that he could be coming to the Ohio State vs. Michigan game as well.

Danny Clark, Ohio State's lone commit for 2017, checks in at No. 43. Clark was excited to know where he stands with the rest of the competition.

"Now I know where I stand against the rest of the competition," Clark told 11W. "All I can do now is put forth every ounce of strength, desire, and motivation into my craft and perform at the highest level possible." 

The list contains two prospects from Ohio besides Myers and Clark, CB Marcus Williamson from Westerville South (No. 60) and WR Danny Davis from Springfield (No. 64).
