Recruiting: Where 2019 Ohio State football prospects rank

Ohio State’s class has three five-star prospects in the composite rankings* compiled by 247Sports: Lewis Center (Ohio) Olentangy Orange defensive end Zach Harrison, Austin (Texas) Lake Travis receiver Garrett Wilson and Buford (Ga.) center Harry Miller.

Harrison is the No. 12 prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the consensus No. 1 player in Ohio while Wilson and Miller are ranked 20th and 30th, respectively, in the nation. 

Jameson Williams, a four-star receiver from Saint Louis, gives Ohio State four top 100 recruits. He is No. 82 overall, No. 1 in Missouri and 13th at his position. 

There are 12 four-star prospects from Ohio in the 247Sports Composite, a group that includes Ohio State signees Cade Stover (linebacker, Lexington), Ryan Jacoby (offensive lineman, Mentor), Tommy Eichenberg (linebacker, Cleveland St. Ignatius) and Noah Potter (defensive lineman, Mentor). 

The Ohio State class is 13th in 247Sports Composite national rankings and No. 3 in the Big Ten, trailing Michigan (No. 6) and Penn State (No. 10). 

The Buckeyes’ ranking includes Doug Nester, a four-star offensive line commit who is still reportedly considering Penn State and Virginia Tech along with Ohio State. 

Head coach Ryan Day and his staff also are in pursuit of offensive linemen Enokk Vimohi, a four-star guard from Hawaii, and Dawand Jones, a three-star guard from Indianapolis Ben Davis High School.
