There are only two 2021 recruits in Rivals' new top-10 committed to date, and both commitments belong to the Buckeyes.
Rivals.com released its Rivals100 ratings for the Class of 2021 on Tuesday afternoon, and there were only two top-10 recruits committed to date – both of them committed to Ohio State.
Pickerington defensive end Jack Sawyer has been around the top-three prospects in the class since he was first rated No. 2 by 247Sports, but Rivals slotted him in at No. 3 Tuesday. Philadelphia quarterback Kyle McCord is rated as the No. 2 quarterback and the No. 9 overall prospect, two spots ahead of Michigan commit J.J. McCarthy.
Emeka Egbuka, a Washington athlete that Ohio State wide receivers coach Brian Hartline is pushing hard for, is rated No. 8 overall, and Beaux Collins, who recently placed Ohio State in his current top-two is No. 12.
Virginia Beach cornerback Tony Grimes, who was in Columbus last weekend, came in at No. 22, Pickerington Central wide receiver Lorenzo Styles was rated No. 25 and Solon defensive end Najee Story is No. 67.
