The Inside Story On Ohio State’s 2021 Recruiting Class

Ohio State has wrapped up most of its 2021 recruiting class, and is now just waiting on word from the nation’s No. 1 overall player JT Tuimoloau.

With most of the hay in the barn, it’s time for one of the most highly-anticipated articles of the year, Alex Gleitman’s annual insider looks at the stories of that recruiting class.

He has a look at how Ohio State landed one of the greatest classes in college football history, as well as some of the big names who got away.

How did the race between 5-star quarterbacks Kyle McCord and JJ McCarthy play out behind the scenes? McCord and McCarthy will now face off as rivals at Ohio State and Michigan.

The inside details of the hectic final weeks of the chase for 5-star WR Emeka Egbuka, how the pandemic may have turned 5-star JC Latham from close to an Ohio State lock to an Alabama commit, and much more.
