C'mon, man, its a fantasy thing, right?  Carter NFL Hall of Fame > Hartline 2 years coaching experience. Carter played at TOSU as well.  It's Cris freakin Carter.

Not discounting the job Hartline has done thus far, and his youth, being able to relate to recruits.  He is doing great. He has only been a coach for a couple of years.  Day's offense and the year Haskins had last year play a part in the success recruiting as well.  Can't go wrong with Hartline.

Here is an article written in 2017 and updated in May 2019 from the Cincinnati Enquirer about the number of players from the greater Cincy area that are in the NFL (28).  It lists the player, high school. college, and year drafted and round taken in the NFL.  I understand that some players from that area may have already come and gone.  I also understand that not reaching the NFL does not mean a players wasn't a pretty damn good college player, necessarily.  It does not include Cincy area players still on rosters in the college ranks.

That said, 28 players is a pretty good amount of talent from one area, albeit over a period of time.  TOSU had 4 players on that list, UCincy had 3, MSU had 2, and UK had 2.  ND, Texas, Alabama, LSU, and a few other power 5 schools had 1 each, along with the MAC schools.

Seems to me TOSU is doing as good as anyone recruiting the Cincy area lately.

GO BUCKS.

That was the first time I was in the 'Shoe in a very long time, having flown in from Houston to watch THE GAME with my brother and a couple buddies.  The win made for a very memorable trip "home" to see my family.  I still have the ticket stub to that game.

The Buckeyes are recruiting their needs right now, where there is less depth, which is likely on offense.  There is more depth on the defensive side of the team right now and less of a need.  Sure, a better performance on the field and familiarity with the coaches will definitely help in recruiting on the defensive side, but the apparent lack of defensive recruits and "stars" for the 2020 cycle might have more to do with the fact the less defensive players are needed than on offense.
