Ryan Day is putting together a ridiculous class.

Ohio State is outpacing everyone in the 2022 class.

Entering last weekend, the Buckeyes already held No. 1 recruiting class in the nation with three commitments from top-50 prospects in the 2022 class. This week, their lead got even bigger.

In less than a week, Ohio State added two more commitments from a pair of Texas five-star prospects with quarterback Quinn Ewers – the No. 2 overall player in the class – committing to Ohio State on Thursday and wide receiver Caleb Burton – the No. 2 receiver in the class – committing to the Buckeyes on Monday.

With the two new pledges, Ohio State now holds commitments from five top-50 prospects, matching the rest of the nation combined. There are only five other committed top-50 prospects and no other program even has more than one top-50 commitment.

The class is led by Ewers and Burton in the rankings, following by the top-two outside linebackers in the class in five-star Gabe Powers and four-star C.J. Hicks, ranked No. 33 and No. 35 in the national rankings, respectively. Four-star athlete Dasan McCullough rounds out Ohio State's top-50 prospects, ranked No. 48 in the nation.

The Buckeyes also lead the nation in five-star commitments with three – Ewers, Burton and Powers. No other program has more than one.

Ohio State currently has the No. 1 recruiting class in the country by a wide margin with a recruiting score of 206.70. The next closest team is LSU with a score of 157.64 despite only two fewer commitments.
