Ohio State Football: Grading the 2013 Recruiting Class by Position
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
Urban Meyer has once again landed a top-5 recruiting class.

Urban Meyer continues to add to his coaching legend with one of the nation's top recruiting classes. A class so good that it even exceeded Meyer's expectations on national signing day.

In his second recruiting season in Columbus, Meyer continued to build Ohio State's roster into one of the most talented in America.

Now any real grading of this class, positional unit or individual player won't be completely accurate until their time at Ohio State is done—just ask the 2008 class.

But on paper this is one of the finest classes in the country and possibly, the most talented in Ohio State's storied history. 

To grade these units, I looked at what the Ohio State Buckeyes needed, the rating of the commits from the four main recruiting services (Scout, Rivals, 24/7 Sports and ESPN) and whether or not the commit was the player Ohio State's coaches targeted first—because I trust the coaches perception more than the recruiting services'.

If each positional unit is counted the same then the final overall grade for the Buckeye's 2013 recruiting class is 3.54.

Ohio State did lose Johnny Townsend, a punter who signed with Florida. So the Buckeyes might have to find a punter.
