Fools upthread who prefer those inferior dark grays must submit to your aesthetic superiority.

To evaluate quality, I think you need to compare Ohio State's X# commitments vs. Alabama's top X#. (It doesn't make sense to say their class drops in quality because they add, say, a 3-star punter after signing 21 5- and 4-star players. I removed Blake Haubeil's rating from the comparison because IMO it artificially skews the numbers.)

This is what OSU's top 20 looks like compared to Alabama's top 20:

        Alabama      OSU
avg.  0.9653         0.9503

1      0.9982         0.9954
2      0.9980         0.9953
3      0.9921         0.9936
4      0.9878         0.9903
5      0.9865         0.9870
6      0.9834         0.9800
7      0.9825         0.9783

[Chris Spielman's] dad said, "Okay, where are you going to go?" I said, "Dad, I want to go to Michigan." And he said, "You traitor. I'll tell you where you're going. You're going right down 71 South and you're going to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes. ... Better not go there (Michigan). Don't ever come home if you do."

"Word Origin and History for blue blood:  1834, translating Spanish sangre azul, claimed by certain families of Castile as uncontaminated by Moorish or Jewish admixture, probably from the notion of the visible veins of people of fair complexion."

Haskins was a target from the beginning.

Ohio State is very high on — and high on the list of — a few of the country's best 2016 quarterbacks including Jarrett Guarantano, Dwayne Haskins, and Jawon Pass... If they decide to take a quarterback and none of those top three choose Ohio State, where might the Buckeyes' attention turn? Two names top that list: DeSoto, Texas' Tristen Wallace...

My recollection matches Broward's. Guarantano and Haskins were the top 2 targets (in that order), and Haskins lost interest after OSU picked up Torrance Gibson. Wallace didn't become a priority until after Haskins effectively took himself out of the picture.
