Ohio State's wide receivers had some high ratings.

The Buckeyes are getting some athletic freaks at wide receiver.

Three of Ohio State's four wide receiver commits turned in top-10 athletic ratings among wide receivers at The Opening.

Five-star Buckeye receiver receiver commit Julian Fleming took the top spot with a 140.04 rating and Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Mookie Cooper held down spots No. 9 and No. 10 respectively.

The score is a measure of a player's overall athleticism, taking into account 40-yard dash time, vertical jump and a power ball toss in addition to power and agility tests.

Fleming posted his full scores on Twitter, and was in the 99th percentile among all athletes tested in every category.

The score does not always correlate directly with success at the college level, but some recent Ohio State players have posted strong scores in the test and and gone on to have solid Buckeye careers.

J.K. Dobbins was the ratings champion at The Opening finals in 2016 with a score of 146.76 and Terry McLaurin posted a 141.96 in 2013, good for the third-best score at the camp.
