Zacxh Harrison is the No. 1 recruit from the state of Ohio and he just so happens to be the top uncommitted recruit left on the board. The five-star defensive end, an Olentangy Orange product, is the No. 4 overall recruit in the country and seen as one of the premier pass rushers at the high school level.

The five-star prospect was expected to make his announcement on Wednesday afternoon. According to 247Sports' Crystal Ball predictions, Michigan was the favorite to steal to top Ohio recruit just last week, but that changed leading up to the Early Signing Period.

Leading into today, Ohio State jumped out as the favorite to lock up the nation's No. 4 overall recruit.

On Wednesday afternoon, he made it official.

The addition of Harrison is huge for new incoming head coach Ryan Day who takes over for Urban Meyer after the Rose Bowl against Washington in just under two weeks.
