We use a lot of two TE sets, so I'm sure Day would like to continuously have the same amount of TEs committing as TEs leaving. And we know 2 TEs are leaving this year, Hausmann and Farrell, and Ruckert might go to the NFL if he has a really good year (ik, not likely, he's good enough, but probably needs another year of action to prove it to scouts). It's not a desperate need to have 2 TE's in this class, but it would be a nice safety cushion just to make sure we keep depth.
Lastly, I believe strongly that Michigan has superior coaches from an X and O standpoint. Our coaches had great game plans and did their best to prepare the players. The talent gap is just too much to overcome.
Here's this fun post on an MGO board. Apparently - Harbaugh and Co. > Day and Co.... which is just plain disrespect! Also, thanks Spooner :) this lessens the pain of quarantine.
If CFB is canceled this season, I wonder what the NCAA would do about the 85 scholarship maximum, with incoming freshmen and unproven seniors/juniors who needed this year to declare for the draft.
While this would be fun to see, I can't see Maryland competing with Penn State or, dare I say, Michigan for at least the next 5-10 years. But here's to hoping!
I can see your thought process on Emeka, but you seem a little too optimistic about Tunmise, as he does a very good job disguising on where he will commit too. He could commit to any one of his top 5 schools and I wouldn't be surprised by his choice.
I'm sure Adeleye was higher on the board than Robinson, but I don't think they would have held him off until later, still think they would've accepted his commitment if he chose to commit. Either way, it's over for now.
Where did you read this? I doubt the staff would wait on accepting a top 50 recruit, especially on a position that is supposed to have a large recruiting haul this class, for any reason.
Exactly my question! I just saw his CB just now and thought I'd go over and tell everyone, just to find out they've figured out the news wayy before I did. I love OSU fans
No confirmation. His commitment was a leak, so some speculate that he might have decided to wait to publically announce his commitment because he wasn't pleased that his plans were leaked. I'd still expect his commitment tomorrow though! Staying optimistic!!
Day clearly can no longer recruit at a high level, unacceptable!! For real though, I feel so blessed and spoiled to go from Urban Meyer to Ryan Day.
Wellll... when you put it that way lol
Thanks for the feedback!
Webb: I can totally see that being your favorite play, but I just enjoyed how early in the game the Nebraska Pick 6 was (only 1:30 in the game). It was a really great way to start a top 10 matchup.
Marshall: That probably should have been my favorite moment, but the Michigan rivalry had me a little biased (to be fair, it was a pretty good catch. But you're right, that was probably his best moment.
Wilson: A really good moment, but I feel like that was more of a Justin Fields highlight.
To be fair, Ohio State took a player ranked 1,136 nationally in the 2020 recruiting cycle (Trey Leroux).
Same! Thirteen of the guy's on that list will be on the roster next year, that's a lot for talent and I'm excited to see what they're able to do!
Difficult to say this early on, but there's no doubt 2020 was a very offense-heavy class. Three of the Top 4 commits in 2021 are also on offense, but I think that'll even out in time. Either way, I'm already loving Day's work on the recruiting trail!
There would not be any point to reclassifying his position for any purpose, they'd just take 8 wide receivers in 2 classes. I still doubt we get both though, but if we do, allows Hartline to be very picky for the 2022 recruiting class.
I feel like they almost have to in order to make it a fair season.
Would they take Wilcoxson right now? No doubt he's a solid player, but I would think they tread a little more patiently in wait for someone higher on the board for the time being, like Davis Jr.
True, but I'm a little worried that the loss of Spring Ball will delay the coach's projected depth chart, which will inhibit players from entering the transfer portal, as they won't know where they stand in relation to playing time. I'm sure we'll still make the 85 man limit, but something to keep an eye on.
It really wasn't... he just trained the OSU single-season rushing record holder. I'm pretty sure he was just fine.
If our coaches would rather have Hart, then I completely trust them and would rather take Hart. And we really want Stellato as well, make no mistake about that, Hartline really likes the dude. Rankings only tell half the story and really only get you so far, different coaches see/prefer different things in different players.
Forgot my guy Marcus Bradley, I was rushing that list. That'll bring it up to 5 DL men.
Forgot Tight End: Sam Hart (Hudson Wolfe, Jack Pugh)
