Ohio State coach Urban Meyer addresses the media.

Nearly half of Ohio State's recruiting class is already on campus.

The Buckeyes currently have 20 commitments in their 2017 haul and nine of those are already enrolled and will participate in spring practice.

The list includes: cornerbacks Jeffrey Okudah, Shaun Wade and Marcus Williamson, safety Isaiah Pryor, quarterback Tate Martell, offensive lineman Josh Myers, linebacker Baron Browning, athlete Brendon White and running back J.K. Dobbins.

During an interview on ESPNU as part of its National Signing Day coverage, Meyer was asked about his initial impressions of the Buckeyes' early enrollees.

"Ridiculous," Meyer said. "You’ve got two 6-foot-1 corners walking through the building with Shaun Wade and Jeff Okudah and you also have Marcus Williamson who is doing an outstanding job." 

"Josh Myers, he’s always been one of the top-five players in the country so he’s here, he’s killing it in the weight room and doing a great job. Baron Browning is a guy that we’re excited about that can make an instant impact at the linebacker position."

"So, initial response to the kids here? Outstanding.”

Leading up to National Signing Day, Ohio State released video profiles of all nine early enrollees. Catch up with all of those below:

Meyer has a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday where he will discuss Ohio State's class in full. Be sure to stick with Eleven Warriors for continuous coverage from National Signing Day.
