- RB Sampson James, 4 stars, Avon (Ind.)

Where Ohio State’s 2019 class ranks
Ohio State’s 2019 recruiting class ranks No. 21 in the 247Sports composite team rankings. Of course, with just three commitments in the class, the Buckeyes are hard-pressed to rank very high in the team rankings at the moment. The good news is that they have the top-ranked class in the country among teams that have three or fewer commits.
Position breakdown of the Buckeyes’ 2019 class
Ohio State’s target number for recruits remains extremely flexible with nearly a year until National Signing Day in 2019. The Buckeyes also don’t have a clear idea yet of their projected scholarship numbers for the 2019 class without knowing which players could leave the program between the start of spring football and the start of the 2018 season. There’s plenty of time for these projected numbers to change and adapt.
Geographic breakdown of the class
Indiana: 1 (James)
Ohio: 1 (Jacoby)
West Virginia: 1 (Nester)
