Recruiting analyst says one 5-star recruit has the “upside to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft” Twitter Screen Shot

Ohio State and Urban Meyer currently have one of the top recruiting classes in the country, and the class is headlined by five-star defensive end Chase Young.

According to 247Sports, Young is the No. 8 overall player in the class of 2017, and 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong said Young has tremendous upside.

“He’s a guy that has the upside to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft,” Wiltfong said, via Land of 10. “He’s a very disruptive defensive end.”

At the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Young recovered a fumble, had a tackle-for-loss and had a quarterback hurry.

“He was one of the bell cows there,” Wiltfong said. “One of the best guys there, and he certainly flashed a ton in the game.”

Young, at 6’5 and 251 pounds, should provide a boost to Ohio State’s defensive line, which returns plenty of depth from last year in Tyquan Lewis, Sam Hubbard, Jalyn Holmes and Nick Bosa.
