Jeremy Ruckert, nation's No. 1 tight end commits to Buckeyes

The top-ranked high school tight end in the class of 2018 is headed to Ohio State.

Lindenhurst (N.Y.) High's Jeremy Ruckert announced his verbal commitment to Ohio State on Twitter after naming Michigan, Notre Dame and the Badgers as his other three finalists.

Ruckert becomes the 15th commitment in Ohio State's 2018 class, which has surpassed Miami (Fla.) and is once again the No. 1 recruiting class in the 247Sports composite ratings. He was a standout performer at The Opening Finals in OR earlier this month and now ranks as the No. 18 overall player in the country.

Ohio State's 14 ESPN 300 commits are the most of any program in 2018 as Miami is a close second, now holding on to 13 ESPN 300 prospects and Texas and Penn State are next with 10.

The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Ruckert will be the best tight end prospect Urban Meyer has signed at Ohio State, besting players like Marcus Baugh (2013), Jake Hausmann and Luke Farrell (both in 2016).
