The more you follow recruiting, the more you'll notice how uninformed people can be with it. I have a lot of friends that hear one positive tidbit of info about a recruit and think that they're coming to OSU. Most people have no idea how quickly things change in recruiting.

If you took the average composite ranking for the 4 WRs in 2020 and then Harrison Jr., Ballard, and Egbuka, you'd get the #46 player in the country. That's absurd.

Not a good idea to offer Edwards when they said all along they only wanted two

This doesn't make any sense. Edwards was identified early on as a top-of-the-board prospect. Henderson and Pryor offers came along after. So, what you're suggesting is that they hold off on offering Edwards a scholarship until they've evaluated all possible options and then only offer two players a scholarship since they only wanted two RBs? That wouldn't work on so many levels.

Saw this video randomly pop up in my suggested videos and I don't think it's been posted yet in this forum. Don't know who PPI Recruits is but they give a cool inside look on a recruiting visit to OSU. Looks like this was last spring/summer

Disclaimer: CJ isn't actually getting interviewed in the episode. RJ just talks about how COVID is going to impact lower-rated kids ability to get big time offers at camps and uses CJ as an example of someone who earned offers through camps and rose through the rankings to be a top100 recruit.

I think it also means that they aren't getting what they were hoping for from O'Shaughnessy. If he was performing well, there'd be no need to get another punter.

Apparently, the Bengals let Joe know they were gonna take him a while ago so he's been studying the playbook for weeks. Looks pretty clear that the plan is for Joe to start from day 1.

Seems like a very mature kid and seems very excited to be a Buckeye. I'm a fan already. 

And to go along with him going hard after Egbuka, he mentioned that he talked to Coombs and said, "Whoever you want, I'm on em'".

Just a quick aside: no need to keep apologizing for your posts. From what I've seen, you're doing a great job contributing to the discussion and adding value to the forum. Keep it up!

There are numerous reasons why OSU no longer has 10+ Ohio kids in each class. I'll just mention two:

1) The innovations and revolutions in technology have helped make OSU into even more of a national brand than they ever were. This, coupled with success on the football field, has led to OSU being able to recruit anywhere in the country. And this is a good thing. That means we're getting the best of the best, regardless of the location of the kid.

2) The acceleration of the recruiting process has severely hurt Ohio kids chances at higher numbers of P5 offers. Because of Ohio's rules not allowing high school spring ball, many staffs have to wait til summer camps or during/after their senior seasons to see how they've developed. Meanwhile, southern recruits can develop and demonstrate their skills basically year-round. Urban talked about this frequently when he was here about how he wished there was more time to evaluate senior film like the good ole' days.

Is there enough talent in Ohio on a yearly basis for OSU to take 10 kids from here? Most likely. But, I'd imagine the staff doesn't see the wait on evaluations as a risk worth taking when top end recruits across the country are knocking at the door to get in.

That dude knows his stuff when it comes to CFB and recruiting. He has a Youtube channel and talks about OSU in a pretty knowledgeable way even though he's an Oklahoma fan. 

He posted this video last night right after Henderson committed:

I can't decide what is annoying me more: you continually bringing up Wiltfong or the fact that you don't know how to reply to a comment. 

Comment 19 Mar 2020

This is the kind of honesty we need on this board. I move to hire you on as the 11W Recruiting Thread Director of Recruiting. Go find us the best of the best.

Clemson insider with a CB for Tristan Leigh (and one for Nolan Rucci as well) to Clemson. If that comes true, that would mean that they would get the number 3 and 4 tackles. Unreal. Just want to continue the sentiment that I cannot stand Clemson.
