The junior day weekend at Ohio State has been successful - and not just in the junior class. Ohio State has added a commitment from 2017 star Josh Myers, the country's third-ranked prospect in all of the 2017 class. A 6-foot-6, 290-pound tackle, Myers is the top-ranked offensive lineman in the country among sophomores.

The Myers File

  • Class: 2017
  • Size: 6-6/290
  • Pos: OL
  • School: Miamisburg (Miamisburg, OH)
  • Composite Rating: ★★★★★
  • Composite Rank: 1 (OT)

The Buckeyes have been considered the favorite to land Myers for some time, but the family's connections to the University of Kentucky, where his brother is currently playing, had some thinking his recruitment could play out a bit. That was not the case as Myers picked the Buckeyes today over scholarship offers from Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan State, Florida and a host of others.

Myers was offered by Ohio State last March, months after a dominating freshman season, and became a primary target of 2017 quarterback pledge Danny Clark, who had gotten to know Myers very well. He becomes the fourth Buckeye commitment for 2017, joining Clark and a pair of Florida stars, Bruce Judson and defensive back Shaun Wade. Myers and Clark are the state of Ohio's top two prospects for 2017, while Wade and Judson are ranked No. 2 and 3 in Florida respectively.
