Looks like these kids just need to keep working. Good things comes to those willing to work.

We are long overdue for a big 4/5-Star BOOM.  Is it Friday yet?

I would’ve guessed it was longer ago than that...time has slowed down.

Just a crazy stupid thought, but we seem to be recruiting great players at every position except QB.

This year is a down year for QBs but we are in the running for a few studs in the 2020 class.

Every 5 star QB in 2019 is currently committed to Ohio State. What's the problem?

So many of these 3*s have some major power offers. It will be interesting to see their ratings as the season goes on and the signing period approaches.

I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.

They are in every kid’s top 15. OSU is in the top 5 or close to it every year, so if they are not in the top 15, the kid isn’t paying attention - or he is from tsun.

Anyone else see the local Northland brother Branham JR C/O 2020 commit to that team up North today? ughh

Saw it. Posted the same in the 2020 recruiting forum. Wouldn’t think he would pull the trigger so early.

 Im not surprised. Ohio kids are tired and even angry about being told they aren’t good enough to play for their state’s flagship school. ttun gives them the ideal situation and opportunity for revenge - at least an opportunity. Unless they recruit better overall, I don’t see them beating OSU anytime soon. But all these Ohio kids getting spurned is going to trickle down to their kids, and the next generation, and one day may catch up to OSU with a kid or two that they do actually want.

FLJ - glass is half full!! The success we have is  because kids all of the country are now growing up to be Ohio State fans.  With that comes great players which then becomes great teams. 

 Sorry but we are not going to win national titles with mostly Ohio kids on the roster. 

 Get used to it or get out

That's because a large percentage of them aren't.

This about honoring his late grandfather who was a big UM fan. On UM side of things, it appear they were after Paris Johnson ( the 5th rated player in 2020) who is close to this and he didn't waste any time trying to recruit him.

If this kid is publicly tweeting Johnson telling him that their dads know each other, I’m skeptical that he knows Johnson at all.

Jordan Johnson's highlight reel is impressive. He runs great routes, jukes defenders out of their shoes and keeps plays alive.

Did anyone notice how the talent level at OSU dropped towards the end of the Vest  time here. Did anyone ever here what Urban said about the talent level when he arrived. I admit Luke wasn't ready to be a head coach here but it wasn't all that great  talent wise when he took over here either. Plus the coaching staff was even worse. You don't see the number of Ohio players in the top 250 like days gone by. Look at any recruiting service and look at the states that fill the top 250 Ohio won't be one that sticks out trust me. Even back when it did populate the 250 better it didn't cover all the positions needed filled year to year.

Fair points.

No, I just noticed that the talent cupboard was well stocked enough from JT to go undefeated in Urban's first year, the B10 cahmpionship game-which wasn't lost due to talent the 2nd, and a NC in the 3rd.................................
