Devonta Smith
CB Devonta Smith (.8843) walked away from his commitment to Ohio State on 6/25. Four days later he committed to Alabama.

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.

Ryan Day already has four 5★ recruits in the 2021 class. The only Ohio State recruiting classes to have four or more 5★ recruits were 2002 (4), 2008 (4) and 2017 (5).

Kyle McCord was impressive during the Elite 11 Finals. Will his ratings see an appropriate increase next month?
