Ohio State rounds out top five

The Buckeyes started the day at No. 2 and finished the day at No. 5 in our current recruiting class ranks. However, just because they fell in the ranks doesn't mean they didn't do work. In fact, they even snagged a five-star recruit, No. 1 DE Nick Bosa -- something LSU did not even accomplish. Class Rankings (Insider)

Only hiccup for Ohio State on a drama-free national signing day? The fax machine ran out of paper while the Buckeyes were waiting for the last signature of the top-five class from wide receiver Binjimen Victor. "All we could do was laugh about it," director of player personnel Mark Pantoni said. "The fax is a staple of signing day, and that's part of the fun."

Ohio State had most of its class in place before signing day, but the Buckeyes closed strong with the addition of No. 5 juco player Malcolm Pridgeon. The four-star offensive tackle also considered Baylor, Florida and West Virginia.

With the paperwork in for wide receiver Binjimen Victor, Ohio State appears to be all done with its 2016 recruiting class. The Buckeyes added 18 signees today to go with 7 early enrollees who are already on campus as part of a group that currently ranks No. 3 in the nation.

Titans stick with Bosa at No. 1

Tennessee could trade the top pick, or fill a major need by drafting some offensive line help. But Todd McShay thinks the Titans' best move would be to pull the trigger on Joey Bosa. Mock Draft 2.0 (Insider)

Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

The centerpiece of Ohio State's touted class has officially signed with the program, with Nick Bosa sending in his paperwork to pick up where his brother left off. With Joey Bosa heading to the NFL, expectations couldn't be higher for his little brother to fill the void and make an instant impact at defensive end for the Buckeyes.
