The Rich Get Richer

First year Buckeye coach Ryan Day is on a recruiting tear. In a summer of blue chip commitments for Day and the football Buckeyes, another top prospect joined an impressive looking 2020 Ohio State class when safety Lathan Ransom out of Salpointe Catholic in Tucson Arizona, announced for the Buckeyes Tuesday night.

Ransom is another major get for the Buckeyes. According to 24-7 sports, Ransom is the fourth best safety nationally in the 2020 class and is the 76th ranked prospect overall. He becomes the ninth top 100 prospect to commit to Day's 2020 class, which is currently ranked second nationally behind only Clemson. Overall, Ohio State currently has 21 players on board for 2020. Ransom is the 14th out of state prospect in that group.

The entire class is listed below, as is an interview with Ransom, following his commitment, by Sports 360 AZ, as well as some of Ransom's highlights.
