Yahoo Sports: Rivals.com Ranking - BuckeyeGrove 2012 Ohio Rankings - July 2011

The state of Ohio is still deep for the class of 2012 and even though the Buckeye recruiting effort has hit more than a few speed bumps it doesn't mean that there aren't some top players still on the board in the Buckeye state.

In February we rolled out our first rankings for the class of 2012 and now it is time to do an update after seeing most of these players on the camp circuit.

This evening at 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) we will be hosting a live chat where we will talk about how we came about these rankings and answer other recruiting questions. Be sure to scroll down and set an alarm so you don't miss this chance to interact live with our rankings experts here on the site.

Without further ado, BuckeyeGrove.com releases the most extensive Ohio rankings out there for the class of 2012.
