Ohio State has made the cut for five-star 2017 quarterback Tate Martell.
My Official Top 7 (No Order)

The country's top-ranked dual-threat quarterback was committed to Texas A&M for almost a year but re-opened his recruitment at the beginning of May. He visited Ohio State in late March with his father and grandfather – who lives in Ohio – and has tenative plans to return to Columbus sometime in June with the rest of his family.
The Buckeyes are the current crystal ball leader for the 5-foot-11, 203-pounder, holding the edge over A&M (some predictors haven't updated their pick, clearly) and a pair of Pac-12 schools, Cal and USC.
His list shows that among the things he's most interested in is the chance to play early in college and for an offense that is wide-open and will utilize his special skill-set.
A decision from Martell could come this summer, though he's expected to take all five of his official visits regardless of when a decision is made. He will enroll at the school of his choosing in January.
