Ohio State Moves Into No. 1 Spot in Team Recruiting Rankings, Overtakes Notre Dame

Ohio State has the nation's top recruiting class.

The Buckeyes have the best class in the land.

With the commitment of four-star cornerback Kayin Lee on Monday evening, Ohio State now has the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, according to the 247Sports composite team rankings.

This comes after Ohio State landed four prospects in less than two weeks as Lee's commitment followed a three-peat of top-10 receivers – five-stars Brandon Inniss and Carnell Tate as well as four-star Noah Rogers.

The four recent commitments propelled Ohio State past Notre Dame, which previously held the top spot in the 2023 team rankings – though the Irish also had two more commitments. The Buckeyes' average recruit ranking was already far ahead of Notre Dame's even before Lee's commitment, at 94.15 compared to the Irish' 92.72.

Ohio State now has eight commitments from players ranked in the top 150 in the 247Sports composite ratings. With a strong push in the next few months, the Buckeyes have a real chance to finish with the No. 1 class in the country.
