    College football recruiting rankings as of Monday, Jan. 11. The Ohio State Buckeyes have made a big move.


    How does Urban Meyer do it? Year after year, he recruits and recruits and recruits, and he always seems to come out on the other side with a slew of the nation’s best prospects.

    On Monday, the Ohio State head coach added another set of blue-chip recruits to his 2016 class with the additions of 4-star wide receiver Binjimen Victor, 4-star quarterback Dwayne Haskins and 4-star linebacker Keandre Jones, who all chose the Buckeyes. Talk about a great start to the week for the scarlet and gray. 

    Victor’s commitment helped Ohio State leapfrog Michigan into the No. 2 spot in the 247Sports Composite team rankings, trailing only LSU.

    Four hours after Victor announced he’d be going to Columbus, Ohio, Haskins and Jones flipped from Maryland to Ohio State. That launched the Buckeyes into the No. 1 ranking for 2016.

    With 21 total commits, the scary part is Ohio State isn’t even done. There are still two weeks before National Signing Day. That’s two weeks for Meyer to solidify his No. 1 class.
