I made a 2013 Mock Class post last year around this time.
Pretty interesting to see some of our picks and who we actually got. Most of us were very wrong!
QB DeShaun Watson: until I see otherwise, I'm going to trust in Meyer's ability to get this guy. Obviously the staff feels pretty good at this point or they'd be going harder after another QB (Dew Barker).
RB Jalen Hurd: he named us a leader a couple months ago and although we haven't heard much since then I think he ends up in this class. Great big back.
WR Marshon Lattimore: explosive athlete and from Glenville.
WR Drake Harris: him opening up his recruitment coincided with Meyer's visit to him and his decision to play only football. Things are trending up with us and him.
OT Kyle Trout: already committed and as solid a prospect as you can find.
OT Jamarco Jones: I thought he might commit last weekend but looks like he wants to take a few more visits. Has been to OSU five times already.
OT Roderick Johnson: huge tackle from Missouri. Has legit interest in us and I think Zeke will help close this one.
OG Marcelys Jones: already committed and very atheltic for his 350 lbs. He might take a few visits but in the end he's a Buckeye.
ATH Parris Campbell: already committed and a speedster. I think he'll redshirt because he is still incredibly young. Excellent player though.
ATH Myles Autry: similar to Dontre Wilson IMO. Buckeyes are his dream school.
DE Jalyn Holmes: just reopened his recruitment and has us in his top schools. Gets a little overshadowed by Hand in Virginia but a very good player in his own right.
DE Malik McDowell: this one's going to be an OSU, ND and UM battle. I'll put my faith in Urban to win out.
LB Dante Booker: as close to a lock as you can get. Actually think he might make the move to Viper or LEO when it's all said and done.
LB Kyle Berger: we made a great impression by noticing him first. Michigan fans think he'll go there but I just don't see it. Plus Blake Thomas's dad was on here saying how he is a Buckeye so...
LB Raekwon McMillan: huge prospect and Meyer's relationship with him wins out. Think we land him in the summer after his visit.
LB Clifton Garrett: been the only consistent team at the top for him throughout the whol process. Like OSU and wants to play with Booker and Kwon.
CB Damon Webb: already committed and one of the best corner prospects in the entire class. Will help recruit McDowell and Harris.
CB Jabrill Peppers: will be a tough battle with Stanford and possibly ND or UM.
S Quin Blanding: Kind of out of the blue that we're said to lead now for him (although he did tweet last week that he really needed to visit OSU). He wants to visit soon and decide shortly afterwards. Top 10 player in the class.
S Montae Nicholson: from Columbus and Ohio State fan. Great safety to conclude the besst DB class in the country for the second year in a row.
Couple of extra notes: sucks that his is going to be a smaller class because there are so many other prospects that we're in on. Right now I have 20 players. 6 from Ohio the rest from out of state. It's a down year in Ohio, and there are so many stud out of staters. I think the staff will want either a kicker or punter in this class too so a scholly might go there. If they want a TE then Jeb Blazevich is the guy. Loves the staff and perfect fit but I don't know if there will be room. Also, I would have loved to fit WR Demarre Kitt in the class but It's already at 20 as it is. If we get Harris to go with Lattimore I don't know if we'd take another. Will be interesting.
Anyways, what are your guy's thoughts? Who to add or take out? Post your classes to and we can see how bad we did a year from now!
