Ohio’s 2021 recruiting class might be one of the best in recent memory, especially within the Top 10 in the state rankings. The class produced plenty of highly-ranked talent for powerhouse programs like Ohio State, Notre Dame, Alabama, LSU, and Wisconsin.
The talent was also wide spread. The depth at receiver was impressive, the top end talent along the defensive line was perhaps the best in several years, and as always, the state had quality depth along the offensive line with four O-linemen making the cut and several more being considered for a spot in the Top 25.
Even in a strange year with limited schedules, postponements, and cancellations, BuckeyeScoop.com recruiting analysts Bill Greene and Marc Givler were able to see most of the state’s top prospects in person this fall. With Signing Day not too far in the rearview mirror, it is time to put a bow on the 2021 Ohio rankings.
