We still aren't sure when college football will be played again, but whenever that is, the Ohio State Buckeyes are going to be loaded, yet again.

Ohio State, despite the fact that there's currently a pandemic, is landing football recruits left and right. The team's latest get is a five-star running back named TreVeyon Henderson out of Virginia. He announced the news on Friday night.

Henderson, per 247 Sports, is a 5-foot-11, 195-pound back out of Hopewell. He's the top-rated running back recruit in the country for 2021 in 247's rankings.

Henderson had 40 offers, and chose Ohio State over Michigan, Virginia Oklahoma and many others. In the video he released Friday night, he made it clear that those were the four schools in the running.

Here's his commitment, via Twitter:

Henderson was expected to take a number of visits this fall. But with college football season up in the air, he decided to move up his time frame.

Ohio State now has the top-ranked recruiting class in the nation for 2021, per 247 Sports.
