National Signing Day: Ohio State Lands Consensus Top 6 Class

The four main recruiting services — Rivals, Scout, 24/7 and ESPN — have all dubbed Ohio State’s Signing Day haul as among the top six in the nation. The best ranking was No. 3 (Scout), the lowest No. 6 (ESPN).

Either way, Urban Meyer’s first Signing Day in Columbus will go down as a success.

The 2012 Class is headlined by five-star defensive ends Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington, who are rated Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, at weakside D-end in the country.

Other standouts include Tommy Schutt, the 6th-ranked defensive tackle; Camren Williams, the 8th-ranked safety; Se’von Pittman, the 8th-ranked weakside defensive end; Bri’onte Dunn, the 11th-ranked running back (all rankings according to Rivals).

National Signing Day: Davonte Neal Not Signing With Ohio State Buckeyes, According To Report

The Ohio State Buckeyes were expected to be in the lead for Davonte Neal, a four-star recruit, but National Signing Day came and the team decided to pass on him. Though the early reports don't indicate an exact reason why, it seems the Buckeyes might be saving a scholarship for someone down the road.

It seems, according to early rumors, that the team might be waiting to see what fellow wide receiver Stefon Diggs decides to do. Diggs, a top 15 recruit, is expected to wait until Feb. 10 to make his decision with a visit to the Maryland Terrapins still on tap.

It's unclear if that's the exact reason Neal won't be signing with the Buckeyes on Wednesday, but Rivals' Mike Farrell reported late Wednesday afternoon that Neal won't be in this year's recruiting class.

It's going to be interesting following this little saga, especially if Diggs doesn't end up signing with the Buckeyes.
