Since the first release of the top ten recruiting classes in October, not much has changed for many of the programs. However, a few landed some big coups causing a slight shift in the rankings at this time. Still, there are no new entries.
Ohio State landed three excellent prospects in the last month, two from the state of Florida. Inside linebacker Etienne Sabino (Miami/Dr. Krop) and teammate CB Travis Howard (Miami/Dr.Krop) both pledged. Athlete prospect Lamar Thomas (Ft. Washington, Md./Friendly Senior) rounds out the group. Ohio State has now wrangled up four players ranking in the top three at their respective positions. The Buckeyes move up one spot to No. 5.
