I’m perplexed by the recent CBs to Oklahoma for Burden. Ive read and heard all great things about his relationship with OSU, that he love Hartline, that OSU is recruiting him hard as 1 of their top WR targets, and OSU wants to build on the Missouri pipeline. Now within the past week or so it’s all trending to Oklahoma. Curious as to what’s transpired
Buckeye Scoop insider said he’s coming back fwiw
This makes absolutely no sense in my opinion. Why opt out now and not until after the final voting and decision is made. He can’t wait 24-48 hours??? Plus his dad has been one of the main parent protestors the entire time since the Big Ten initially postponed the season. I don’t get it
A follow up to Lighteyes comments...would OSU wait until Egbuka makes his decision before offering Allen? Zach mentions that an offer to Allen won’t affect OSUs recruitment of Egbuka. However, it might affect how Egbuka feels about them offering another WR, and ultimately his final decision
305Buck, I get that but Day has been adamant he wants to sign more Ohio kids in his recruiting classes, especially with a very strong 2022 Ohio class. Prioritize. Singleton and Payne and call it a day
Andrew Ellis, or anyone else that can provide an insider answer, what’s up with OSU not offering Gi’Bran Payne yet?? I believe he’s clearly the top RB in Ohio why are they waiting so long. Bama gonna scoop him up if they don’t soon
Still don’t understand why OSU hasn’t offered Payne yet. If they continue to wait he may not be as Patrice this and commit elsewhere. I really want this kid in the 2022 class
Andrew, I have a question regarding recruits being able to visit or not. You mentioned that it’s going to be tough for JTT to officially visit over the next few months due to Covid, but what about the no contact visits similar to what Bennett Christian did a couple weeks ago. If the current commits can put something together and JTT decides to visit with them and see the campus, etc for a couple days, won’t that help OSU case? Same situation with Egbuka. They could visit together
I still don’t think the SEC and ACC will end up playing in the fall, and all college football will start in January. However, if they somehow end up doing so, I believe the CFP Committee will delay the playoffs until March in order for teams like OSU playing in winter/spring to be eligible. And that would entice players like Fields and Wade to play. That would be the only reason I would support OSU playing in January
Does anyone think there’s any chance that the Big 10 will re-evaluate if the SEC, ACC and Big 12 all move forward and play?? Especiallly if the data etc is universally shared with full transparency?? I mean I still find it ridiculous that one Dr from the ACC says everything is ok to move forward and play and the Dr from Big 10 says shut it down
Any chance at all he is still considering OSU (and visa versa) and he’s just looking at all his options to make the best decision?? Will OSU still continue to recruit him?
Zack can you clarify something....you mentioned in this Hurry Up that OSU is looking to take 1-2 more LBs that would total 3-4 in 2022. But in a previous article you made the comment that it wouldn’t surprise you if they add a total of 5. So what’s the most likely number?? Current commits are Hicks and Powers, with McCullough an almost guarantee. That leaves Murphy and Medlock as the remaining most likely candidates. Is Medlock a committable offer or will with wait to see what Murphy does first? Or could they take both?? I also still believe that one of Powers or McCullough eventually grow into a DE, similar to Cade Stover.
Well A&M has produced several stud DL, most recently Von Miller and Myles Garrett both future HOFers
Care to elaborate? They have a very close relationship and I’m sure they’ve talked about it
305Buck, that could potentially become something to worry about for OSU. Think about it, if Oklahoma is 2nd behind OSU for JTT and, hypothetically, Egbuka commits to the Sooners, then I think JTT will as well. I really believe those 2 are very close to being a package deal
Seriously how does Benny not have OSU in his final 8?
So this is probably a dumb question but I’m going to ask anyway....if someone isn’t listed on a preseason awards list, does that automatically make them ineligible to win the award?? Or does it just mean they aren’t recognized in the preseason but make the semifinal or final list? For example, let’s say Trey Sermon somehow has a monster year can he be named a Doak Walker semi finalist/finalist?
So does a potential change of heart of Egbuka playing in the spring instead of enrolling early still favor OSU or not??
Damn Powers looks awesome!! I think the 2022 LB haul will be like the 2020 WR group, the strength of each class. Said it before, Hicks, Powers, McCullough, Medlock and possibly Murphy is one sick group!! Especially that 3 of those guys are 6/4 - 6/5
That’s a very good point forgot about Carter. And I’m with you id rather have Carter flip as a pure LB
That’s why I commented what I did bud, because it’s a very good chance
OSU needs 1 more top OL, either flip Latham or Tristan Leigh
Zack, I personally feel very optimistic that OSU will land JT, Egbuka and Malone but trying to figure out Davis Jr. Do you believe he’s a little leery of joining an already large DB group or is he a guy that would say numbers don’t matter, I’ll go in and compete? I think it’s a coin flip at the moment with Penn St, what will be the X factor in his commitment?
Also, can you see Tristan Leigh choosing OSU? I know he’s been saying they are right in the thick of it but all the signs point to Clemson. Can OSU do it again and get this kid?
i would love to see the 2021 class finish with JT, Egbuka, Malone, Davis Jr, Leigh and Burton
How the hell did TT fall that much?? Unreal, beyond rational thinking. Whoever updated these ranking are complete morons
