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.
