It didn't take much time for Ohio State to announce its presence at The Opening.

JK Dobbins, a running back committed to the Buckeyes in the 2017 class, was the Nike+ Football Ratings Champion in Beaverton, Oregon on Friday posting a final score of 146.76. 

Jeffrey Okudah, a top Ohio State target, finished second with a 142.6. Another top Buckeyes target, Cam Akers, finished third with a 140.1. Dobbins turned in a 4.45 40-yard dash, 43.1-inch vertical leap, 4.09 20-yard shuttle and a powerball toss of 42 feet to take home the title.

A four-star prospect out of La Grange, Texas, Dobbins is the No. 3-ranked all-purpose back in the country and the nation's 50th overall prospect, according to 247Sports composite rankings. He committed to Ohio State on March 6.

After taking home the title, Dobbins was presented with a trophy from former Ohio State and current Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is helping assist with this weekend's camp.

Eleven Warriors will have continuous coverage of The Opening throughout the weekend here.
