It’s no secret Ohio State wants to close out the 2014 recruiting class strong. The number of pledges could reach as high as 23, as BuckeyeNation thinks that’s the number moving forward.

With that said, here are the top five targets we feel are currently on top of the Buckeyes’ wish list.

Please note, we said it could go up to 23, so just because you don’t see the names such as Mike Gesicki (Manahawkin, N.J.), Chad Mavety (Garden City, N.Y./Nassau Community College), Braxton Berrios (Raleigh, N.C./Leesville), Thomas Holley (Brooklyn, N.Y./Lincoln) or Noah Brown (Sparta, N.J./Pope John XXIII) doesn’t mean Ohio State is shut out in grabbing them.
