DeShaun added to the squad is so crucial if they want to win it again this year. A lot of the other top teams added more firepower, so I'm so happy to see they worked it out with DT to join the squad. I notice he's being allocated the full winning payout (200k) as the original core group. All of the other newer adds have typically been allocated half that amount, as they have again this year.

Egbuka, top-ranked receiver and No. 8 overall senior in the country, is one of the most dominant offensive forces in America and could prove to be a transcendent player wherever he ends up. If that’s Ohio State, he has a genuine shot at emerging as the most productive and dangerous receiver out of the entire 2020-2021 group combined. 

I'm still not even processing landing Fleming yet - after landing Wilson the year before. If you tell me Egbuka could be the best of the 6 WR already have/coming this year and next - I'm not sure I'll be able to handle it lol. It's likely already the most talented WR room we've ever had on paper, top-to-bottom - and in 2005 we had three 1st round WRs in the same room, along with a 2nd rounder, a 4th rounder, and a 5th rounder.

The talent we've brought in at WR is remarkable.

Dan, this was an excellent piece - much appreciated. 

Amari went to hs school with my daughter. He always seemed to stand on the sidelines behind either the QB1 or HC, so he got a lot of air time during his career - if you were looking for him, like I occasionally did. Use to enjoy embarrassing my daughter by calling him out during games. I guess all the girls in hs thought he was such a catch.

As insane as it sounds, it will not surprise me one bit if Scott, Fleming, and Smith-Njigba end up developing into the best pro prospect WRs we've had at Ohio State in a long time. And that includes Michael Thomas (2nd round), Paris Campbell (2nd round), Terry McLaurin (3rd round), Olave and Wilson - who hope to be 1st round picks.

I'm sure the odds are unlikely, but almost everything you see and read about these 3 freshman indicate they're coming into Columbus to take Zone 6 to new heights.

I can't wait to see them in action.
