Ryan Day continued to solidify Ohio State’s claim as perhaps the top destination for the best high school quarterbacks with the commitment of five-star Class of 2024 quarterback Dylan Raiola on Monday night.

Raiola, the No. 8 overall player and the No. 3 quarterback in the 247Sports Composite, is OSU’s first commitment in 2024. In 247Sports’ rankings, Raiola is the No. 1 overall player. He’s also rated the top player in 2024 by On3. He chose the Buckeyes from a list of suitors that you’d expect from one of the best quarterbacks in a class — Alabama, Georgia and USC, just to name a few.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound junior will play this season at Chandler High School in Arizona after spending his first two seasons, including one as the varsity starter as a sophomore, at Burleson High School in Texas. As a sophomore, Raiola threw for 3,243 yards and 42 touchdowns. Raiola is the son of former Nebraska offensive lineman Dominic Raiola, who won a Rimington Trophy and was an All-American for the Cornhuskers before playing 14 seasons with the Detroit Lions.

His commitment continues an extraordinary run of quarterback recruiting at Ohio State under Day. Going back to Day’s first full class in 2020, the Buckeyes have signed four of the top 30 quarterbacks in the 247Sports Composite, regardless of class from 2020 through 2024. Raiola would be the fifth. No other program has landed more than three.

Of course, not all of those players have ended up playing for Ohio State, but it underscores how the program is viewed by the players at the sport’s most important position.
