Ohio State has the No. 1 Recruiting Class in the Country, Per 247Sports Composite

Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes are back on top of the national recruiting rankings.

With two commitments in the last week, Ohio State has now surpassed Miami for the top spot in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, a combination of the four premier national recruiting services: ESPN, Rivals, Scout and 247Sports. 

The Hurricanes have sat atop the rankings since early February, but the Buckeyes surged into the lead this afternoon thanks to a pledge from two-way Brooklyn lineman Matthew Jones.

Ohio State has only 14 commits compared to Miami's 17, so the quality — not quantity — is what sets the former apart. Quarterback Emory Jones, defensive tackle Taron Vincent and defensive end Brenton Cox are all considered five-star pickups for the Buckeyes, while running back Lorenzo Lingard is the only future Hurricane to hold that honor. 

National Signing Day is Feb. 8.
