Ryan Day's first full recruiting class as Ohio State's head coach just keeps getting stronger.

With the commitment of four-star safety Lathan Ransom to Ohio State on Tuesday, the Buckeyes' recruiting class of 2020 now ranks behind only Clemson as the No. 2 recruiting class in the entire country, according to 247Sports' composite team rankings.

The Buckeyes were previously fourth in the rankings, but jumped Alabama and LSU with Ransom's commitment.

Now that Ransom – the No. 76 overall prospect in the country – is in the fold, Ohio State is up to 21 commitments for the class of 2020, including nine prospects who are ranked in the top 100 nationally. Their average composite rating per prospect, 92.09, ranks fifth behind only Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and LSU, but they now have more commitments than each of those schools.
