Ohio State, Urban Meyer Land 2 5-Star Recruits In LB Justin Hilliard, DE Jashon Cornell

Ohio State and Urban Meyer got off to a relatively slow start on the 2015 recruiting circuit. At one point, the Buckeyes' class ranked in the 40s nationally. They're on a roll now, though. 

Meyer received two pledges today from two five-star defensive players. Linebacker Justin Hilliard, out of St. Xavier in Cincinnati, and defensive end Jashon Cornell, out of Cretin Derham Hall in St. Paul, Minnesota, both committed to Ohio State this morning.

Ohio State's 2015 class now ranks No. 13 in the country, according to 247sports.com. The Buckeyes' defense struggled down the stretch in 2013, with losses to Michigan State and Clemson. Hilliard and Cornell's arrivals will likely be greatly anticipated by Meyer.
