I think most sites usually wait until around the summer to issue 5 stars to the Junior class. 247sports for example only have three 5 stars currently for the class of 2017, even though they have Grimes as the 10th best player.
2016 CB Target Chauncey Gardner, named his top 3 in order of Florida, Florida State and Ohio State. Says he wants to visit FSU and Florida within the next couple of months.
He previously decommitted from Miami and Florida, and now says he will wait until National Signing Day to announce his school of choice.
Having Bruce Judson and Jamel Dean in his ear should help Ohio State's chances. Landing Alford will also help Ohio State, as many people had him as a Notre Dame lean before Alford left.
Tyler Gerald discussing his commitment to Ohio State.
Bruce Judson is working out at WR today at the NFTC in Orlando, says he will play wherever the coaching staff needs him.
Wide receiver MVP Trevon Grimes of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas is only a 2017 prospect, but flashed the five-star potential. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder was able to get open deep consistently during one-on-one and seven-on-seven drills.
Victor Pushing for Top WR in Florida
Coconut Creek (Fla.) wide receiver Binjimen Victor had yet another strong showing Saturday. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound prospect runs smooth routes and uses his length well. Victor also flashed enough speed to get over the top of the defense to stretch the field vertically. Perhaps the catch of the day came from Victor when he beat the corner easily off the line of scrimmage on a fade, however, an errant pass cause him to reach out with one hand and pluck the throw for a touchdown.

No doubt they will complain. Briles is still talking about how his team should've been in the playoffs, this is after a loss in their bowl game, and with spring practice around the corner.
Committee will have a hard time leaving them out of the playoffs with this kind of scheduling.
Baylor’s addition of Louisiana Tech and Abilene Christian continues the Bears’ non-conference scheduling philosophy of playing almost exclusively non-Power 5 opponents.
Last season, Baylor played SMU, Buffalo and Northwestern (La.) State out of conference. This season, the Bears play SMU, Lamar, and Rice.
Baylor’s future non-conference schedule includes only one Power 5 conference opponent: a home-and-home series with Duke in 2017-18. Other future non-league opponents for Baylor include SMU, Rice, and Texas-San Antonio and FCS opponents Northwestern State, Liberty, Abilene Christian, and Incarnate Word.
Won Linebacker MVP at the Rivals camp last weekend in Vegas.
Performance: There might not have been a participant that was more eager than Youngquist to line up again for the next rep. He carried that liveliness onto the field and captured the MVP award for his position. The four-star outside linebacker closes quickly on underneath passes and doesn't provide much space on deeper routes, using his long arms to shrink passing windows. Youngquist was a fierce competitor with an endless motor. - See more at: http://ccc.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1740224#sthash.WpE66dRr.dpuf
Kid would be a good walkout LB, explosive and fast.
Clark isn't going to stop Ohio State from recruiting a QB in 2016. Kid had an average season this year, and it could be the sophomore slump but he really needs to up his game. I look forward to seeing him progress as a Junior and Senior.
I think 3 OL is a good number in this class, and Birm has mentioned before that the goal is 5-6 defensive linemen in the 2016 class. Bosa will be gone, Washington will be gone, and Hale & Schutt will both be gone, and none of the other DTs have really stepped up yet. 2016 looks to be the year to reload on the defensive line.
This is a question that needs to be answered, I am also curious.
