The new ESPN recruiting rankings came out on Thursday morning. It was interesting to see just how many players committed to the 2018 Ohio State recruiting class moved down in the rankings.
There is always an ebb and flow to recruiting rankings. You might expect about half of a 14 player class to move up a few spots and the others to move down some when the new rankings come out. In this case, 10 of the 13 ranked commits to the Ohio State class moved down, and running back Master Teague still hasn’t cracked the ESPN300.
This could be easily explained if Ohio State wasn’t well represented at the prestigious Nike camp ‘The Opening’, or if the players who were there didn’t perform well.
