Ohio State was passed by Alabama in the team recruiting rankings for 2017 on Thursday, when the Crimson Tide landed a commitment from a long-snapper out of Florida.
The Buckeyes, who now have the No. 2 class, currently trail Nick Saban's program by less than a point on 247Sports' team rankings.
One of Ohio State's commits in the 2017 class, four-star defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, has a message for Alabama.
"Your hold on the No. 1 recruiting class won't last."
Garrett is probably right, too. Ohio State is expected to land a commitment this evening from Wyatt Davis, a five-star offensive guard out of California in the 2017 class.
A commitment from Davis would easily propel the Buckeyes past the Crimson Tide in the recruiting rankings.
Davis is set to announce at 6 p.m. E.T.
