Running Back Recruiting: Alford Era
CLASS OHIO STATE SIGNEES
2016 Antonio Williams, Demario McCall (Antonio Williams-transferred, Demario McCall has an injury bug, However IMO he's faster and more electric than JK and I pray to GOD he plays this year)
2017 J.K. Dobbins
2018 Brian Snead, Jaelen Gill, Master Teague (Brian Snead-transferred, Jaelen Gill will be an H-back not RB)
2019 Marcus Crowley, Steele Chambers (Steele Chambers was an RB in HS and was recruited for defense, LB)
2020 To Be Determined...….
I want to give Tony Alford the benefit of a doubt that with circumstances beyond his control he did not land the top recruits tOSU wanted since he has arrived here. However it is getting to the point of concern if tOSU does not land a top tier RB in this class. I am curious to see what talent is brought in for RB this year.
Tony Alford has missed out back to back to back years for the #1 RB prospect on tOSU recruiting boards. If Tony Alford swings and misses this year I will have lost all confidence as I think four years is enough. And don't dare try to say I'm not loyal to tOSU, I've supported and cheered faithfully through the John Cooper years till present day.
If this is acceptable for RB recruiting at tOSU then the standard has absolutely been lowered by Tony Alford with his mediocre, lackluster recruiting approach and incompetent ability to close the deal and get the recruit to commit and sign.
