Top 20 rated Ohio State football offensive recruits of all time


There aren’t many programs that have recruited at the level Ohio State has. Since following recruiting became a big thing, maybe only Alabama has had a better run than the Buckeyes.

Just over the last couple of days, OSU has continued to haul in some of the best prospects. On Sunday, Ohio State nabbed its highest-rated defender of all time, J.T. Tuimoloau, followed by a high four-star prospect at wide receiver, Kojo Antwi on Monday.

We already took a look at the twenty best defensive commitments of all-time in program history, so we thought we’d do the same on the offensive side of the ball on the heels of Antwi’s commitment.

Here are the top twenty offensive commitments in the history of the Ohio State football program.
