People mention Collier as though he was a wasted scholarship, but there is value in recruiting a lower ranked QB to serve as a backup QB and long term project. The problem with higher ranked QBs is that they all want to play asap. If they aren't going to be the man then they just transfer. There's value in getting a guy who understands his place, is willing to do the thankless work of clipboard holding and running the scout team, yet is still talented enough to eventually delvelop into someone who could start or fill in as a backup and play at a high level. Kenny Guiton is the perfect example of a guy like that.

Recruiting ranks are far from absolute. High ranked players bust and lower rated guys become stars. It happens every year at every single position. Also the rankings of the coaching staff don't necessarily match those of the recruiting websites. If the coaches aren't sold on the guys who rank at the top by the internet then it makes then it makes sense to look for players that the coaches feel have a higher ceiling but may be lower rated for a variety of reasons (limited football experience, uncertain position, smaller high school, etc). The OSU staff isn't chasing some lower rated players because they're unable to land higher rated players like a lot of other schools (*cough* scUM *cough*). It's because the feel some of these 3 star guys have a higher ceiling and will end up being better players.

I read a good quote somewhere that building a good receiving corps is a lot like building a basketball team.   You want different body types that fill different roles and complement each other.

You want big receivers that can overmatch DBs but you also need smaller faster guys who can create in space and quick guys who can do the dirty work over the middle.

I'm surprised that Andrew Norwell didn't make this list. The guy was a 1st Team All Pro and is now the highest paid guard in the whole league. I assumed he would be on the list but with 8 total Buckeyes, and 7 of them already listed, there not room for him and Bosa, who's a sure thing.

Rutgers and Maryland were added for their TV markets, specifically the metro areas they're near including New York City, Baltimore, and Washington DC

Alternate uniforms certainly aren't the be all end all, but they do make an impression on teenage recruits. Urban Meyer would tell you the same thing.

I was really impressed with the breakaway speed Weber showed in the back half of last year and again in the spring. He is much faster than he showed in the 2016 season as the lead back. If he keeps improving like he has been he'll be an NFL back.
