Ohio State has always had great wide receivers throughout their history. Every year, another young guy tries to cement his legacy in the Scarlet and Gray. From Chris Carter, David Boston, and Michael Jenkins, to Ted Ginn Jr, Santonio Holmes, and Anthony Gonzalez, Ohio State has seen it all, or so we thought.
The wide receiver room over the last few seasons has shot Ohio State to the front of every offensive conversation in the nation. At the helm of this massive turnaround was Brian Hartline. He has brought in Julian Fleming, Emeka Egbuka, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Gee Scott Jr., Jameson Williams, and Marvin Harrison Jr. to his wide receiver room in the last two classes alone. Hartline’s ability to turn great high school athletes into true NFL level talents has been the reason why so many great players have come to the 612. Hartline was ranked the No.1 recruiter of 2020, No. 9 in 2021, No. 13 in 2022, and currently sits in first place again for the 2023 class.
The last two seasons it has been undeniable that the best wide receiver room in the nation was in Columbus and that won’t be changing any time soon. The 2023 class now boasts four huge wide receivers that rank amongst the best in the nation, and they’ve all made their commitments known in the last two weeks.
