COLUMBUS — The nation’s best prospect in 2024 was on campus at Ohio State on Tuesday.
Chandler (Ariz). quarterback and Ohio State commit Dylan Raiola worked out in front of Ryan Day at the Buckeyes one-day camp. Raiola worked alongside Jacksonville Trinity Christian (Fla.) 2025 quarterback Colin Hurley, Pittsburg (Calif.) 2023 wide receiver Israel Polk and recent 2023 Ohio State wide receiver pledge Carnell Tate, among others.
Raiola is the country’s No. 1 player in the 2024 On300 and No. 1 quarterback in the 2024 On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound quarterback committed to Ohio State in early May and was the first to commit to the Buckeyes’ 2024 class and has wasted no time recruiting others to come to Columbus.
“Dylan [Raiola], he’s really recruiting me,” 2024 No. 1 running back Stacy Gage said on Tuesday. “He texts me almost every day. He texted me before I landed here. With him being here, that’s a good thing.”
Raiola had the chance to work out in front of Ohio State head coach Ryan Day and quarterbacks coach Corey Dennis on Tuesday in what was a star-studded afternoon at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

Dylan Raiola Scouting Summary
“Advanced arm talent with the ability to make a wide variety of high-level throws as a high school underclassman. Looks like the top quarterback prospect and overall arm talent in the 2024 cycle early on. Physically developed at around 6-foot-3, 210 pounds. Has a natural, loose throwing motion with unique arm dexterity to deliver off-platform and from multiple arm slots. Already has a deep catalog of throws as a rising junior in high school. Easily drives the ball to all levels of the field. Played both under center and in the shotgun as a sophomore. Ahead of the curve as a ball-handler and in the quick passing game. Shows good footwork and awareness in the pocket. Capable of creative plays in the face of pressure. Primarily a pass-first quarterback as a sophomore, not running for many yards. Turned in one of the more productive sophomore seasons among top 2024 quarterbacks. The son of 14-year NFL center Dominic Raiola. Also a standout baseball player as a pitcher and catcher.” — Charles Power, On3 Director of Scouting and Rankings.
