Stay tuned to Campus Sports throughout the day for the latest National Signing Day announcements.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer holds the trophy after Ohio State defeated Wisconsin 27-21 in the Big Ten championship game.

The top available offensive lineman and the second-best prospect up for grabs on National Signing Day announced his decision Wednesday morning.

In fact, Meyer's joy was caught on camera. The native of Tampa, Florida also received offers and visited other top-tier schools such as Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, and Florida.

The Buckeyes finished second, but had no complaints at the end.

The Garden State's Defensive Player of the Year became Ohio State's 19th four-star signee (per 247Sports) which will lead all signing classes in 2018.

Petit-Frere's long arms help him keep defenders at bay, giving him the upper hand against quicker assignments.

The addition of Petit-Frere and four-star outside linebacker Javontae Jean-Baptiste has the Buckeyes keeping pace with Georgia for the No. 1 class in the country. Based their head coach's reaction, the Buckeyes are doing just fine, in what's shaping up to be another near-picture flawless finish to the recruiting cycle.

"I just want to credit our staff", Meyer said. ". The one thing about [Ohio State], and I made it clear: You can't coach here unless you're an elite recruiter". In every season, the Buckeyes have finished inside the top 10 nationally.

The Buckeyes still have an outside shot to pull in the top-rated class in the nation.

Most FBS teams filled the majority of their 2018 classes during the new early signing period in December.

Honestly, probably not. Meyer should be relatively happy with the second-best recruiting class in the country, especially since Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs have been nearly untouchable this cycle. "And the few guys jumped in the boat, for the most part".
