Jordan Hancock
CB Jordan Hancock (.9649) flipped from Clemson to Ohio State on July 19. He also fills the void that Devonta Smith (.8843) created when he walked away from his commitment to Ohio State on June 25.

This little series follows the rankings of Ohio State's 2021 commitment class.

It is always interesting to see the ups and downs that each player's ratings will take between now and the first Wednesday of February.

Nine Notes

  1. Jack Sawyer remains the highest rated player in Ohio State's 2021 class.
     
  2. Kyle McCord had the largest bump (+14) in his rating last month.
     
  3. Twelve Ohio State players had their rating increase over the last 30 days.
     
  4. Zero Buckeye commits had their rating drop this month.
     
  5. Since February, Donovan Jackson and Sam Hart are the only Ohio State commits to never have their ratings decrease. 
     
  6. Marvin Harrison Jr. has lost the most rating points (-162) of any 2021 Buckeye.
     
  7. Ohio State's team average rose six points and is now at a class high of .9577.
     
  8. Michigan's second best player, OT Giovanni El-Hadi (.9666), would rank ninth if he was in Ohio State's class.
     
  9. TE Sam Hart (.8804) is the lowest-rated Ohio State position player in the 2021 class. Hart would be the highest-rated player at Michigan State, and second-highest player at Illinois, Indiana, Purdue and Rutgers. Hart would be third at Nebraska.
