The Buckeyes made the cut for the top player in the 2020 class as five-star defensive end Bryan Bresee has Ohio State among his top six schools.
Alabama, Clemson, Penn State, Georgia and Michigan also made the list.

The five-star defensive end out of Damascus, Maryland is the top-rated player in the 2020 class and the No. 15 player in the history of 247Sports Composite ratings – tied with Leonard Fournette and Adrian Peterson.
Bresee visited Columbus earlier this season when the Buckeyes hosted Tulane. 50 percent of 247Sports crystal ball projections have Bresee heading to Ohio State, with Penn State coming in at 38 percent. Maryland picked up 12 percent of the projections, but did not make Bresee's final six.
If he signs with the Buckeyes, he will be Ohio State's highest-rated prospect since Terrelle Pryor signed in 2008.
