If/When we win big this year, would another team(maybe Arizona or ASU) offer Day a HC job with a eye on drawing Miller?

This is always a concern of the big powerhouse schools. If what you suggest happens, I hardly see Ohio State just sitting on the sidelines and letting it happen. I am sure there would be some strong negotiation between Ohio State and Ryan Day and/or Jack Miller to get them to stay.

As a side note, it really pisses me off that the NCAA does NOT have a regulation on the books that prevents smaller piss ant schools from being able to come to poach our assistant coaches WHILE WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF A PLAYOFF RUN. For all the silly assed rules that they do have, they don't protect the success that a school achieves in season until it is over.

It is a real simple common sense answer - no coaches can be hired by another school until after the NC game. BOOM.

You don't get the benefit of getting an early start on upgrading your staff, because you sucked this past year. Like Ozzie Guillen said "Play better".

Miller Time! 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted. 

HS
GrandTheftHarley's picture

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Miller is considered the third-best pro-style quarterback and No. 47 prospect overall in the Class of 2020.

OK, I'm either out of the loop entirely or just ignorant, but does this tidbit imply that UFM's classic RPO offense is being changed? Or is this kid Miller going to be the round peg made to fit a square hole?

Someone please enlighten me.

beavis's picture

before haskins and now miller - UFM has never had elite pro style qbs, WHO CAN THROW THE FOOTBALL, to run a more pro style offense - he has now with haskins and miller. i'd look for the offense to change....for the better! our great running backs will now be the ones RUNNING THE BALL 25+ times a game - NOT jt barrett.

HS

Correct. With 2+ great RB and a great passer, all is balanced and we're tough to contain.

Having a QB who can stretch the field vertically is huge for the run game. The 2014 championship was proof.

HS
LeftCoastBuckeye's picture

Check out his tape above.  On the first play, the ball is in the air for 55 yards and drops into the receiver's pocket.  The second is a designed QB run for a 95 yd TD, so he's got some wheels.  Looks to me that he can run whatever offense Urban wishes.

EDUGOON's picture

This is huge!!!! I keep having to remind myself that his film is from his Soph Year!! Yikes!!! This is will bare a different type of fruit for the recruiting class. If my memory serves me correct this will be the earliest we've had a QB committment in the Urban era or sometime. This will be sure to attract other top end skill and oline recruits, may even effect some defensive recruits with such great talent coming together Columbs. Should be fun to watch the impact this and Mathis committment has on the 2019,2020,2021 classes. #GoBucks

Miller looks like a great fit for our offense. Great arm, very accurate, runs well, and he can whip it downfield while scrambling. Dis gon be good.

HS
Bhasseman's picture

His accuracy is actually a big issue...completes barely 50% of his passes. Strong arm for sure but needs to learn to reign it in on short throws. Saw him play against local high school in SoCal and was surprised he was rated as high as he was. Putting trust in coaching staff that they see a lot more than I do.

HS
CowCat's picture

I did not know that. Thanks for the info.

Highlight videos can be deceptive, as they're well ... highlights. I did notice that he throws some hail-mary-type of passes, hoping the receiver makes the play on the ball (vs. a tight rope throw in stride).

The last qb I remember from AZ worked out pretty good.  His team deserved at least a share of the national championship, in my less than humble opinion.

HS
USArmyBuckeye's picture

This is my first time watching his tape. I can see why the staff likes him. Great ability to extend the play while keeping his eyes downfield, goes through progressions in the pocket, can throw well on the move, mobile enough certainly. The only thing that scares me a little is some decision making but he’s a sophomore in high school on that tape, and I’d rather have a guy making debatable throws with confidence than being afraid to force one in (within reason). 

Welcome to the family! Miller Time 2.0!

HS
Hal Lancer's picture

Lots of pluses on that tape, lots of great plays, but I also noticed as you did (and you often see this even with great HS q-backs): he's getting away with things that will not work in the B1G because he's facing HS pass defenses that aren't so great, but if he listens to the coaching staff, the good plays will remain and the don't-do-that-here plays will fall away.

Welcome Jack! An amazing week for the Bucks. Urbz will have to stick around if only to see how this 2020 class pans out.

So I had to read Ryan Day's wikipedia page since I am only a little familiar with his background from here. He was plucked from the NFL and Chip Kelly. It goes a little deeper than that. He played QB at New Hampshire when Kelly was there.

Not trying to be Debbie Downer or Negative Nancy here but it looks like Day was the key factor in his recruitment. Now we need to get him to stay at TOSU for it least a Couple more seasons to avoid a flip.

I must be watching different film than most... He has potential, but I’m not buying the hype. He’s indecisive, and throws up jump balls. Extends plays and misses his windows where receivers are wide open. Anyone remember the kid from Massillon that got the OSU tattoo just to get pushed out of the class and end up at UK? I have to keep in mind that it was sophomore film, but I think it’s worth keeping an eye on before we get too excited. Just my humble opinion.

HS
Brooksie's picture

Wolf - you are referring to Danny Clark from Akron Hoban (via Massillon). He was a left handed pro style QB. From the time he committed to Ohio State until he decommitted, the focus of Ohio State's QBB recruiting shifted from a pro style QB to spread option QBs. With the addition of QB coach Ryan Day, the focus has swung back to pro style QBs. Danny just got caught up in the wash. I didn't know Danny personally, but my buddy's son does. Good kid - I wish him well at UK.
