Yeah but there's a much steeper drop off from Heuerman to Farrell/Hausmann/Hawkins than there is from Zeke to Mike Weber. I'm not saying Jeff Heuerman is better than Ezekiel Elliott, I'm saying the Buckeyes would benefit from adding him than they would Elliott (though I agree, it would be hard to actually make that choice).
I didn't put a corner on this list because I think Ohio State will be just fine at that position this year between Denzel Ward, Damon Arnette and Kendall Sheffield.
Well, you did, didn't you?
It got you to read it, didn't it?
It seems like he would make the perfect h-back, I agree. But he wasn't practicing there in the spring; he was with the running backs. Though I imagine with the emergence of JK Dobbins as a legit No. 2 running back, McCall might get more reps at h-back during camp.
We push him hard because the staff and players are really high on him. It's not just us.
"Did I get fired?"
247Sports.com. They just hadn't updated the rankings yet when I wrote the piece.
I don't think Jallow being a 2/3 sort of player is really going to affect Ayala's decision at all. Ohio State isn't bringing in Jallow to bring the ball up the court, but Ayala sure would. They fill a completely different role. It's like asking if Sam Thompson committing would affect Ja'Quan Lyle's decision (I'm not comparing either of those players to either of these players. It's just an example to explain what I mean about roles).
I think Eric Ayala reclassifying to 2017 could be Ohio State's best chance to add another guard. But that's still probably a longshot.
Well, Cooper was a four star in the 247 Composite ratings, which is what the chart used, but he was a five star by 247. So both are correct.
I can only speak for the players we've talked to, namely Hubbard, Lewis, Holmes and Bosa, but they love it. It keeps them fresh so they're at their best whenever they're on the field. It also exhausts the offensive line and gives them different looks to keep them guessing. Overall, it just makes the line more effective.
Here's a link to the spreadsheet I used, if you'd like to look. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AIrxRS0WmQjk1NSf3zc3sdZUctsyqtqQoCpnuacoxbc/edit?usp=sharing
I did it all in excel, but I just moved it all over to a google doc that you can peruse/try to make sense of. Though be warned, it's not very pretty. I designed it very quickly for me to use, not to display to other people. But I'm sure you can figure it out.
