Following 247Sports rankings update on Thursday, Opa Locka (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna Prep five-star wide receiver Jeremiah Smith (6-3, 198) is now considered the top prospect in the 2024 class by the recruiting service.

Smith joined Ohio State’s class in December and has continued to rise up the rankings, and should he finish as the top-ranked prospect in the class, it would be the first top that 247Sports ever had a wide receiver as the top recruit in a class.

He collected 58 receptions for 1,073 yards and 20 touchdowns last season and is already off to a blazing start this year with 52 receptions for 781 yards and 11 touchdowns through seven games.

Following the rankings update, Ohio State now has five five-star commits and nine top-10 prospects in the class, and has the second-ranked class with 303.43 points behind Georgia (312.89), though the Buckeyes are significantly ahead of third-place Florida (284.22).
