National Signing Day is here, so it's time to take a full look at Ohio State's recruiting class of 2020.

With Cameron Martinez set to officially join the Buckeyes' class of 2020 on Wednesday, Ohio State will have 25 new freshmen on its roster next season, including two quarterbacks (Jack Miller and C.J. Stroud), four top-100 receivers (Julian Fleming, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Gee Scott Jr. and Mookie Cooper) and a five-star offensive tackle (Paris Johnson Jr.).

In this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays, we take a look at Ohio State's incoming freshman class – ranked as the No. 5 overall class for the 2020 recruiting cycle – from top to bottom, highlighting each of the Buckeyes' potential future stars while nitpicking just a couple areas (like missing out on the class' top running backs and Clark Phillips) where Ohio State could have fared better in Ryan Day's first full recruiting cycle.

We also answer a few of your listener questions, including why we think Zach Harrison will make a huge impact in 2020 and why we're confident Ohio State basketball will make the NCAA Tournament, at the end of the episode.
