Ohio State is still in the race for one of the nation's top offensive tackles.
Five-star offensive tackle Tristan Leigh, one of the Buckeyes' top remaining targets for the class of 2021, released a top-five list on Thursday that includes Ohio State as well as LSU, Clemson, Alabama and Oklahoma.

Leigh has moved to the top of the Buckeyes' offensive tackle board since fellow five-star JC Latham announced his commitment to Alabama, and is one of several top-ranked prospects Ohio State is still looking to add to its top-ranked 2021 class along with wide receiver Emeka Egbuka, defensive linemen J.T. Tuiomoloau and Tywone Malone and safety Derrick Davis Jr.
Earlier this week, fellow 2021 offensive tackle Ben Christman – who is already committed to Ohio State – started a social media campaign to recruit both Leigh and Egbuka to the Buckeyes' offense.
Happy to announce my official campaign to recruit @emeka_egbuka and @Leigh71Tristan to The Ohio State University!— Ben Christman (@BenChristman70) July 20, 2020
I ask that you please tweet out #MekaToColumbus and #TristanToColumbus to help out my campaign!

Leigh, who attends Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Virginia, is ranked as the No. 1 player in his state, No. 3 offensive tackle and No. 11 overall prospect in the class of 2021.
