That's how Meyer has it. I'd offer two comments.
1) WVU jumped way up because it got Holton and Dibo in the spring; however, Holton has yet to complete his associate's degree, and Elijah Macon (who was originally their top 2012 recruit but who had to go to prep school for a year) is still waiting on a test score. If neither qualify, then WVU's class takes a big, big drop.
2) Detrick Mostella is a good player and a very good pick up for OSU, but 247 has him way ahead of the most of the recruiting services. 45th for 247 but 88th in the composite. Rivals 53, Scout 84, ESPN outside of top 100. FWIW, Verbal Commits has him 76th.

Texas has no one in the composite top 100. Had the composite rankings been around since Barnes arrived, then the last time Texas failed to have a top 100 recruit would be 2008. That was the year J'Covan Brown failed to qualify, and Texas had the one man class of Varez Ward. Texas also failed to get a consensus top 100 guy in 2005, because CJ Miles went pro, and AJ Abrams was a 100-150 type.
Time to re-work that list and move OSU down to 7th. Detrick Mostella just changed his commitment to Pitt.
