High school football recruits release their top 10, top 8 and top 5 school lists all the time.
Even schools that make the list can only take so much from it, but on Monday, Ohio State and Illinois could celebrate at least a little bit. Peyton Powell, a 3-star athlete according to 247Sports, announced his top 10 and both Big Ten schools made the list.
