Ohio State Football Recruiting Update: March 16, 2016

    March 16, 2016

    An Ohio State football recruiting update for the week of March 16, 2016.

    There’s an easy explanation for why Ohio State has been dominant on the recruiting trail over the last few years. It’s Urban Meyer.

    Sure he doesn’t climb trees, wrestle recruits or sleep over at their houses, but Meyer is still one of the best recruiters in the nation.

    Take a look at the talent he’s produced out of Columbus, Ohio recently. The Buckeyes had 14 players invited to the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine — more than any other school — and a handful of them have first-round potential.

    It’s no wonder why prospects want to play for Ohio State.

    Meyer’s track record speaks for itself. He knows how to attract the nation’s most talented prospects and turn them into future NFL stars, and his next group of future freshmen isn’t lacking in skill.

    Here’s a look at how Ohio State’s 2017 class currently sits.
