Hey all. I've been asked a lot of "Who do you think will commit next." and "Who do you see in the class?" type questions. Thought I'd throw together a quick mock class to answer these questions. Remember these are MY opinions.

Quarterback (1):

J.T. Barrett, Wichita Falls (TX)--- Committed to Ohio State

Name(s) to watch: None

Running Back (1-2):

Ezekiel Elliott, St. Louis (MO)--- Committed to Ohio State

Derrick Green, Richmond (VA)--- Visiting for FNL.

Name(s) to watch: None

Wide Receiver (2-3):

Robert Foster, Monaca (PA)--- Will likely take official to OSU.

Shelton Gibson, Cleveland Heights (OH)--- Heavy Buckeye lean. Rumors are he needs to work on some things off the field before officially becoming a Buckeye.

Name(s) to watch: Levonte Whitfield, Corn Elder, James Quick, Taivon Jacobs.

Tight End (1):

Marcus Baugh, Riverside (CA)--- Committed to Ohio State

Name(s) to watch: None

Offensive Line (1-2):

Evan Lisle, Centerville (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Donovan Munger, Cleveland (OH)--- Could visit soon. Have heard rumors he's a silent verbal. Being recruited as offensive or defensive linemen.

Name(s) to Watch: Dennis Finley, Kyle Meadows, Lovell Peterson.

Defensive Line (4):

Billy Price, Youngstown (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Tracy Sprinkle, Elyria (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Joey Bosa, Ft. Lauderdale (FL)--- Committed to Ohio State

Michael Hill, Pendleton (SC)--- Committed to Ohio State

Name(s) to watch: None

Linebacker (1-2):

Mike Mitchell, Plano (TX)--- Deciding a Gridiron Kings. I've been told by a couple of people that he's saying he'll be a Buckeye.

Tyquan Lewis, Tarboro (NC)--- Visiting again for FNL. He wants him mom to see Columbus before deciding. Wouldn't be shocked if he committed shortly after this visit.

Defensive Back (3-4):

Cam Burrows, Trotwood (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Eli Woodard, Voorhees (NJ)--- Committed to Ohio State

Jayme Thompson, Toledo (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Vonn Bell, Rossville (GA)--- Feel this will be an OSU-Tenn. battle. Nowhere close to deciding. Like Buckeyes' chances though.

Names to watch: Vernon Hargreaves, Mackensie Alexander.

Athlete (1-2):

Jalin Marshall, Middletown (OH)--- Committed to Ohio State

Darron Lee, New Albany (OH)---  Committed to Ohio State (position subject to change)

Specialist (1):

Johnny Townsend, Orlando (FL)- Committed to Ohio State
