Ohio State already has so many commits in the classes of 2021 and 2022, we can draft almost three full lineups from future Buckeyes who haven't even played a game yet.

That's the premise of our Recruit Draft on this week's episode, as Zack Carpenter joins us for the first hour of the show to build 15-man teams consisting only of players from Ohio State's 2020 signees and 2021 and 2022 commitments.

Hear our discussion as each of us strategically select recruits to form the best possible lineups – consisting of one quarterback, one running back, two wide receivers, one tight end, three offensive linemen, two defensive linemen, one linebacker, one linebacker/safety hybrid, two cornerbacks and one safety – and let us know what you think of our teams.

Zack also answers some questions about Ohio State's continued efforts on the recruiting trail, including why they chose to offer punter commit Jesse Mirco a full scholarship, who could be the next targets to commit to the 2021 and 2022 classes and what's the deal with all those steak emojis.

In the second hour of this week's show, we bring Colin's weekly State of the Position series to podcast form and discuss the present and future of Ohio State's quarterback room. How does an unconventional offseason affect the competition between C.J. Stroud and Jack Miller to be Ohio State's quarterback of the future, where will Kyle McCord factor in when he arrives in Columbus next year and where might Justin Fields still have room to improve this year? We discuss it all.

Finally, we answer your questions about whether name, image and likeness benefits will serve as a deterrent to improper payments in college sports, why we could be headed for a college football season without fans this fall and a variety of less serious topics.
