McMillan, Jones make ESPN's list

The final ESPN300, ranking the top 300 football prospects in the nation, is out and it features 11 different players committed to play for Urban Meyer and Ohio State.

The most recent additions to “Dream14,” linebacker Raekwon McMillan at No. 13 overall, and wide receiver Johnnie Dixon at No. 34, headline the list for the Buckeyes.

Somewhat surprisingly, Cincinnati Moeller's Sam Hubbard is missing from the rankings. A five-star on Scout, Hubbard doesn't even crack ESPN's top 300.

Rank Player Pos. Grade     Rank Player Pos. Grade
13 Raekwon McMillan LB 90   153 Curtis Samuel ATH 84
34 Johnnie Dixon WR 85   166 Jalyn Holmes DE 83
45 Marshon Lattimore ATH 84   172 Demetrius Knox G 83
58 Damon Webb CB 84   178 Parris Campbell ATH 83
74 Jamarco Jones OT 84   183 Erick Smith S 83
130 Dante Booker LB 83          

As a result of the update, Ohio State's class falls from fifth to sixth in ESPN's team rankings. According to the 247Sports composite ranking, which polls several recruiting services, Ohio State has the No. 2 class in the nation.

Michigan is second in the Big Ten with nine commitments in the ESPN300. Alabama leads all schools with 17.
