The flames of Ohio State's summer recruiting extravaganza, Friday Night Lights, hadn't yet been extinguished before 24/7 No. 1 dual-threat-quarterback, Torrance Gibson, vaulted the Buckeyes to the top of his list.

It's little less than a week later, and Ohio State is sitting pretty with 24/7's No. 1 running back of the 2015 class, Kentuckian Damien Harris.

As you can see, it will be some stiff competition to land Harris. Regardless of what happens, Buckeye fans will always be able to take consolation in the fact Harris, the former Michigan commit, has finally dashed any hope of him playing in Ann Arbor.

That's a victory in of itself.
