Less than three weeks from an official visit, Lathan Ransom put Ohio State in a favorable position Tuesday when he released his final five.
The Buckeyes joined Oklahoma, LSU, Notre Dame and Texas ahead of the last stretch.
As the 247Sports composite’s No. 72 overall prospect, No. 5 safety and No. 5 player in Arizona for 2020, the four-star recruit from Tucson Salpointe Catholic is atop OSU’s wish list.
He last unofficially visited Ohio State Feb. 24, following a Midwest swing that included Notre Dame two days earlier Feb. 22.
His official visits started April 12-14 at Oklahoma, followed by LSU two weeks later April 26-28. Ransom takes trips in the same capacity June 8-10 at Notre Dame and June 14-16 at Texas before Ohio State gets the last crack June 21-23.
