With the addition of Bijan, Jaylon, and Lathan it will put OSU's class at 300.57 points. That's the best in the nation according to 247. Ryan Day & Co. are putting in absolute work!!!

How wild would it be if Coach Day's first full recruiting class ended up being first nationally?  I was thinking first in the B1G and top 5 nationally was gonna be pretty impressive.  Awesome job by this staff -

Even if we land everyone we want, we won't be first by the end of the cycle.  The other schools are not done.

3rd or 4th sounds like a more realistic finish with this class which is still absolutely phenomenal for a first time head coach. Day definitely knocked it out of the park for his first class ever.

Rankings are fun to talk about, but bottom line, they are completely irrelevant otherwise.  3-stars have become all-americans,5-stars have gotten bitten by injury bugs, and players may or may not be a good fit for a program.  I won't lose any sleep if we don't finish #1.  It's the recruits themselves that matter.

I was responding to the comment by Georgia Buckeye 2114.  He seemed to think we would move in to the top spot.  I was just saying that would be wild.  Not saying its definitely gonna happen. 

Again - first in the B1G and top 5 nationally would still be mighty impressive -

I know that we won't finish #1, but even to hold that spot in August would be a remarkable achievement in Ryan Day's first year. It's looking like Clemson is going to finish with six 5* recruits....incredible!

Knighton is a really impressive player. He's elusive, slips tackles, and has that open field gear.

Robinson and Knighton would be the ultimate haul at RB for this or any other cycle. 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I have visions of these two on the field at the same time.  Talk about a video game Offense we are going to have!

Add Mookie Cooper. Imagine a defense having to guard Robinson, Knighton, and Cooper at the same time. #speedinspace Then you have those big body WR stretching the D out and blocking. I'm giddy.

Strictly from highlights between Robinson and Knighton, I’ve got to give it to Knighton as the most prolific performer. Lot of variables but...

I am a fan of the words "open field gear".

So I'm a fan of Jaylan Knighton...he and Robinson would be an amazing duo to get.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

Made it up on the spot! To me it's like those guys that see green in front of them and their instinct just kicks in and they're off to the races... We've seen a number of those individuals in Columbus over the years.

The last time I saw a Buckeye use an "open field gear" was when Weber ran wild on MSU in 2017. He looked like he had a rocket engine strapped to his back in that game. It was glorious.

I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.

Here i go again on the Knighton train..... I wholeheartedly believe this kid is going to be special!! He's tough, runs mean, has good vision and has a great burst. He's not an H he's a running back. And he's going to be a beasttttt! (I feel like no one is listening to me)

I like Knighton and Robinson better! They’re both more explosive and have great vision and agility! I’d love to get them both.

robinson is the guy. his ability to get the ball anywhere on the field and take it for a TD is a gift the other guys don't have.power backs are good; but, i like the homerun hitters like robinson.

Hope the Buckeyes get payback to the state of Arizona by getting Robinson.

You can't take a RB that doesn't want to be here. And wtf is "bight"?

Bite them is what he meant and being from Stark County I feel he has a little bias there. Might still be hurting from Danny Clark and Selby ha

it's not a question of the buckeyes not taking him - the buckeyes couldn't guarantee he'd be a running back but arizona recruited him for that.

Knighton's tape is as good as any RB I've seen this year.. and he's supposedly an H-back. You dont see too many H-Backs popping mulitple helmets off and running kids over like that.

No doubt those two rb's are what they have at the top of their list. I will say if we don't get Knighton there are a few that are not far behind him for what they are looking for. Trayanum mentioned above would of been nice. He did say after the pow wow with the staff that he didn't like the running back situation. Just a hunch he wants to be the go to back and not play the Knighton role which to me makes me feel he was told Robinson was in I could be wrong?

Denny

HS
buckeye1964's picture

no, the buckeyes wanted him to play defense  and he wants to be a RB. this is why he ended up in arizona.
