Is pumpkin head, Franklin?   LOL.  

If so, we will also hopefully add Fleming and Carmody to the slap, for the 2020 class.   He’s actually very lucky we stopped recruiting Micah Parsons or we’d have had him too.

Hartline is just so damn good, such an asset to the program. Given his football success and $$$$, I wonder if he’ll be a lifer at OSU or if he’ll move on eventually to accelerate his coaching pedigree as he climbs the ranks.

Was there a connection between Sr and Hartline before the recruitment of Jr?

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

You'd almost think that, right? They never played together in the NFL and, in fact, never at the same time. I'm sure Harrison can do some background checking on Hartline from friends in the league while they check him out as a coach.

Harrison did play with Anthony Gozalez, so it's possible that he got info there if he needed it.

I wonder which approach Dabo is going to use with Harrison? 

"Hartline is returning to play in the NFL next year"

"Hartline has decided to give up on coaching after this year"

"Hartline has decided to retire"

"I am currently convincing Hartline to coach at Clemson"

The possibilities are endless...

Dabo has a great record. He doesn’t need to fill kids with bullshit.

You don't seem to be familiar with Dabo, the recruiter. It is well known that he recruits negatively against schools, saying whatever is needed to get an edge. Many top recruits have stated that Ohio State and Alabama were the only two schools they visited that don't negatively recruit.

When I read about Marvin Harrison, I think about the fact we get three full seasons with Garret Wilson.

Marvin Harrison has a son who's looking at colleges...that makes me feel old.

I'm one that will eat crow but with hot sauce.I was on the fence about Hartline and had good reason as he was getting to much credit with players that Z. Smith had his stamp on. Smith did no favors for the program but was a good wr coach and we can leave it at that. Hartline is doing wonders in the wr room and there have been others from OSU that played with SR. I believe like M.Doss for one? The Colts have drafted OSU pretty good through the years.  Yes about pumpkin head

I'll come at this from a different angle. I grew to dislike Smith, but could deny his recruiting chops and thought that this would surely drop off, at least temporarily. Without going into too much analysis of the differences between the two WR coaches, Hartline has seemingly established his own persona and approach on the recruiting trail, as well as doing work in the WR room, as you noted.

Zach Smith recruited well but it seemed that his coaching left a lot to be desired. I wasn't too worried about Hartline's coaching ability (although sometimes good players don't actually turn into good coaches) as my bigger concern was about his ability to recruit. Seems like Hartline has passed both tests.

“I like to come down into the box and smack people,” Stewart said. “And in this role, you can still score the ball and get interceptions because you can play in coverage, but you’re almost like a linebacker cracking dudes. That’s what I like to do.”

Sweet music to the ears. Join the Good Guys and smack the crap out of the other team.

I would agree with you but OSU wants him as a DB and his ranking is for WR.  I remember John Simon from Youngstown Mooney his senior year getting his ranking lowered from a 5 to 4. There was two reasons for that which the experts didn't see. 1 He was doubled team many times 2 He played TE his senior year and never left the field. Just another point why some 3 stars become elite when they hone in at one position and play half a game. Last I saw he is in the NFL

Or from Minnesota, just as long as they play with ferocity!

“I’ve talked to (Hartline) multiple times, and he just knows so much about the receiver position,” Harrison said. “He’s just a phenomenal coach, probably the best receivers coach in the country. 

The summer scandal was a blessing (don't @ me)... Hartline is turning the tides. I'd say Clemson had taken over as WRU (arguable) but if any of the 3 receivers in the draft blows up this year along w/what Michael Thomas is already doing. Plus this years receivers are going to have some huge production.

Hartline is a gift to Ryan Day that will (hopefully) benefit him for many years to come!
