With nearly eight months to go in the 2015 recruiting class, it's a bit silly to spend too much time looking ahead at 2016, but sometimes you just can't help it. Today, Scout.com released their first Top 300 players for 2016 and as you view the list it's impossible to be anything other than impressed with Ohio State's prospects for the class.

The list of Buckeye targets is long, and while much can happen between now and signing day 2016, you'd be hard-pressed to find a program in better shape with more of these players than Ohio State currently is. Here are the highlights.

  • 5 - Rashan Gary // DT // New Jersey
  • 8 - Nate Craig // WR // Florida
  • 9 - Nick Bosa // DE // Florida
  • 15 - Ben Bredeson // OL // Wisconsin
  • 16 - Tommy Kraemer // OL // Ohio
  • 23 - Jake Hausmann // TE // Ohio
  • 29 - Prince Sammons // DE // Ohio
  • 34 - Rahshaun "Shaq" Smith // DE // Maryland
  • 44 - Sam Bruce // WR // Florida
  • 48 - Justin Layne // WR // Ohio
  • 53 - Levonta Taylor // DB // Virginia 
  • 54 - Austin Mack // WR // Indiana
  • 60 - George Hill // RB // Ohio
  • 66 - Brendan Ferns // LB // Ohio
  • 87 - Robert Washington // RB // North Carolina 
  • 92 - Auston Robertson // DE // Indiana
  • 110 - Liam Eichenberg // OL // Ohio
  • 116 - Tyler Gerald // OL // Ohio
  • 121 - Nigel Warrior // DB // Georgia
  • 122 - Michael Onwenu // OL // Michigan

  • 152 - Dwayne Haskins, Jr. // QB // Maryland
  • 153 - Demario McCall // RB // Ohio
  • 162 - Stephen Smothers // WR // Maryland
  • 166 - Tyrece Speaight // DB // Ohio
  • 189 - Mark Birmingham // TE // Virginia 
  • 195 - Cameron Chambers // WR // New Jersey

  • 260 - Ethan Tucky // LB // Ohio

13 listed here and Jordan said 14 Ohio kids in Top 300. Great year coming for Ohio prospects! Can't wait to see the '15 class finish and the '16 class start to fill up!

Damn, Ohio has some top flight talent in 2016... Potential for a LOADED class.

If Bosa comes north and tOSU keeps a handful of OH prospects, along with a few out of staters....I'll be hearing Keith Jackson's voice in my dreams!

Five offers in 2 weeks. One being a Big Ten offer from Indiana.

Let's just have Nick skip his next 2 years of high school, get him on the field this fall and watch the BOSA BROTHERS dominate for the next 3 years.

Zack Sandwisch should go ahead and change his name to sandwich and have one of the ultimate LB names (along with Irons, Steele).  I want that kid on our team.

We'll have lots of recruiting competition from scUM. Hoke would hate to let a sandwich get away.

If they can get the top 4 WR on that list, which is legitimately possible, that would be sick. That said Birm, when will Justin Layne get an offer?
