Ohio State may have the best class of anybody when it comes to defense, headlined by a pair of 5-star defensive linemen.
Leading the way is Noah Spence. He is rated No. 9 overall and is the No. 1 defensive end.
The man who will likely occupy the other side of the defensive line is Adolphus Washington. He ranks as the No. 2 defensive end and the No. 25 player overall.
The No. 6 defensive end is Se'Von Pittman, who ranks No. 95 overall and rounds out quite a class of ends.
The middle will be anchored by tackle Tommy Schutt. Schutt is the No. 6 tackle and No. 64 player overall.
The defensive backfield is also loaded, led by No. 17 cornerback and No. 219 player overall Armani Reeves.
Two of the top 16 safeties in the country in De'van Bogard and Najee Murray will help anchor the secondary.
At linebacker, OSU has signed Josh Perry, who is the No. 11 outside linebacker and No. 146 overall. He will be joined by inside linebacker Camren Williams, who is No. 8 at his position and No. 167 overall.
David Perkins is the No. 13 athlete according to Rivals.com and the No. 159 player overall. He will probably fit in nicely at linebacker.
