Ohio State fans may be focused on the upcoming 2018 season, but this week, the team's staff has apparently been hard at work securing commitments for future seasons. In the past week alone, Ohio State has gotten commitments from a handful of big-time players for the 2019 and 2020 classes.

Friday, Ohio State got news that four-star safety Jordan Battle, who had 26 offers, had officially chosen the Buckeyes. Battle, a class of 2019 player, took to Twitter to make his announcement.

As noted, Battle is just one of the top players that Ohio State has secured this week. Back on June 24, Ohio State landed four-star pro-style quarterback Dwan Mathis out of Oak Park, Michigan.

Wednesday, Ohio State landed four-star safety Lejond Cavazos, out of Bradenton, Florida, for its 2020 class.

And perhaps the biggest of all - the Buckeyes landed five-star offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. out of Cincinnati, Ohio for its 2020 class on Thursday.

Battle's announcement, pushed Ohio State's class to No. 1 in the Big Ten for 2019, per 247 Sports. The Buckeyes have the fifth-best class overall as well.

Ohio State also has the second-best recruiting class for this season, the 2018 campaign. Needless to say, it looks like they're going to keep reloading year in and year out moving forward.
