Ohio State unseats Notre Dame for No. 1 spot in recruiting
Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio State football program officially has the No. 1 recruiting class in the country following a series of big commitments to the program, successfully surpassing Notre Dame.
Following the commitment of four-star cornerback Kayin Lee on Monday evening, The Ohio State now has the best class in the nation.
The Buckeyes landed four top-notch prospects in less than two weeks. Lee's commitment followed a series of top-10 receivers with five-star players Brandon Inniss and Carnell Tate and four-star recruit Noah Rogers committing to the Buckeyes.
These commits helped push Ohio State past Notre Dame who previously held the top spot in the 2023 team rankings. The Buckeyes' average recruit ranking was already ahead of the Fighting Irish's prior to Lee's commitment, coming in at 94.15 while Notre Dame averaged 92.72.
Ohio State now has eight commitments from players ranked in the top 150 of 247Sports composite ratings.
With a strong push in the coming months, the Buckeyes have a real chance to finish the recruiting season in the top spot.
