Ohio State Takes Back No. 1 Recruiting Class Ranking From Alabama After 5-Star Commits

Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class.

Alabama's grasp on the No. 1 recruiting class for 2017 lasted for less than a day. 

Ohio State retook the top spot in the rankings on Friday night, when five-star offensive lineman Wyatt Davis pledged to the Buckeyes, giving Urban Meyer's program enough points to surge past the Crimson Tide. Nick Saban's program had been on top for less than 24 hours after getting a commitment from a Florida long-snapper. 

Here are 247Sports' team rankings:

Ohio State's 2017 class is shaping up to be one of Urban Meyer's best ever (and maybe the best ever). 

The Buckeyes currently have commitments from 14 players, three of whom are five-stars and 10 of whom are four-stars. 

There's still a long way to go with the '17 recruiting cycle, but it's tough to imagine OSU not holding on to the No. 1 overall recruiting ranking.
