National Signing Day: 2011 Ohio State Football Recruiting Class

2011 National Signing Day is winding down and once again the Ohio State Buckeyes football program was infused with enough talent to make sure the Buckeyes are in National Championship contention for many years to come. With the late commitment of Virginia linebacker Curtis Grant, the Buckeyes propelled their class into a solid Top 10 group in three major recruiting portals – ESPN, Rivals, and Scout.

ESPN has the Buckeyes class at No. 7. Rivals gave the Buckeyes the lowest ranking of the three at No. 10. Conversely, Scout.com had the Buckeyes ranked all the way up at No. 3. All three services felt the Buckeyes class was the best in the Big Ten.
