The 2022 recruiting cycle is almost in the books and the Ohio State Buckeyes did very well with a consensus top-five recruiting class in the nation and what is widely considered the best class in the Big Ten by a wide margin. This class has been marked with heavy hitters like C.J. Hicks, Devin Brown, and Kenyatta Jackson.
Another big deal was the reclassification of what was supposed to be a five-star stud in the class of 2023 in Sonny Styles to the class of 2022 and he will be enrolling in time for spring, but it is never too early to take a peek at what the next class has to offer.
Anthony Brown, WR, Springfield
Anthony Brown is a four-star recruit from Springfield, Ohio who stands at 5’10” and 170 pounds. He was recently committed to Minnesota, but decommmited and has reopened his recruitment. Ohio State has entered the scene and that is not surprising considering their love for speed.
Malik Hartford, S, Lakota West
Malik Hartford is another four-star prospect who is currently uncommitted and is looking at Ohio State hard. The safety from Lakota West stands at 6’3″ and 175 pounds. Hartford announced his top seven schools and Ohio State did make the cut.
Joshua Padilla, IOL, Wayne

Brenan Vernon, DL, Mentor
Brenan Vernon is a four-star defensive lineman from Mentor and he has committed to Notre Dame. Vernon projects as a defensive end at the next level as he measures in at 6’5″ and 275 pounds.
Luke Montgomery, OT, Findlay
Luke Montgomery is a four-star offensive tackle recruit from Findlay and has already announced his commitment to Ohio State over a number of impressive schools including Michigan and Clemson.
