Even as the offseason lingers on, we're still finding plenty to talk about on Real Pod Wednesdays.

After a brief discussion on what to make of the “Buckeye Pledge” to start this week's episode we spend most of the first hour of this week's podcast with a discussion on Ohio State's 25 freshmen and which players are most and least likely to redshirt in 2020. This includes our predictions for which freshmen will make the biggest impact this fall and a debate on how Ohio State should handle the freshman quarterbacks this year, as Dan argues that redshirting should be considered while Colin argues that both should play as much and as equally as possible.

We continue our State of the Position series with a look at the Buckeyes' defensive tackles entering 2020, as we consider the potential of third-year defensive tackles Tommy Togiai and Taron Vincent, whether Ohio State has enough depth at the position to make up for the departures of DaVon Hamilton, Jashon Cornell and Robert Landers and what the Buckeyes need to do on the recruiting trail to replenish their DT depth for upcoming seasons.

We also spend some time looking ahead to The Basketball Tournament, discussing what the Buckeyes need to do to have a chance to finish with the highest-rated recruiting class ever and answer a few listener questions to wrap up the show.
