Hafley might turn out to be the most important addition that Day made in building his first staff.

For some reason (and maybe because it kind of jives with Kelly's character, I dunno), I saw this image and based on the jerking motion, got a really bad vibe about where her right hand is actually placed (which would explain why she's crying)....

We are very fortunate that Coach Day has succeeded Coach Meyer.  Both are great Coaches.  Both hired great Assistant Coaches and those Assistants know how to recruit and coach.  We now have the number 2 Class in the Country with several more great recruits to come.  Welcome to Buckeye Nation to all of these young men.  I look forward to watching them play as Buckeyes over the next five seasons.

What a great addition to the 2020 class.  We have a few talented safeties on the team now - we have some promising kids coming in this season - and Lathan puts us over the top for the next cycle. 

I always say - we have never won a NC in my (very long) lifetime without great safety play.  We're looking simply fantastic in that regard for the foreseeable future. 

This is awesome!

His tape looks every bit as good if not better then Dax Hills from last year. Why no 5th star? Game speed is lightning McQueen.

HS
Silver Sniper's picture

Had the exact same thought. And how can the number 4 Safety be ranked 76 overall and only the fifth best player in AZ? But I agree his tape is otherworldly. I believe he easily shows as good as other five stars on tape. 

HS
Triv's picture

Arizona is loaded this cycle. 5 stars Kelee Ringo and Bijan Robinson are 1 and 2, Mammoth OT Tosh Baker is 3, our own Jack Miller is 4, with Lathan rounding out the top 5. AZ having 5 top 75 players has to be a record for them I would imagine, and from the looks of it all of them are going to be playing in the Eastern Time Zone (Bijan/Miller/Ransom at OSU, Baker at ND, and Ringo at UGA - though Texas is still in that one too)

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

HS
Silver Sniper's picture

I learned, after I posted, how stacked AZ’s class is this year so I get five overall in AZ. 76 overall as the number for safety seems off, I guess if you figure there are so many positions that if multiplied by four, it might put you in the 70 range.
