Zack, what’s the latest you’re hearing about Damon Payne from Mich?? Is he still a priority and is it at OL or DL??
I commented in another post/article that I Hope OSU can get out to an early comfortable lead in the 1st half so that Chug can come in for at least a series or 2 in order to rest and protect Fields. But I doubt that will happen
In a perfect world it would be nice is they can get out to comfortable lead so that Chug can come in for a series just to rest Fields and keep him as healthy as possible. Probably not gonna happen but that’s just my 2 cents
I’m sure Day will get a feel and put in a call to him since they worked together at BC. And this year could very well be Wilson’s last and Addazio would be a great replacement
Bruce Feldman wrote an article about who BC will go after to replace Addazio and he mentioned Hafley as a serious candidate.
Great mailbag tonight Zack and I appreciate having a couple of my questions/comments getting a response. As far as the offense goes next year, I believe it will be a balanced attack similar to this year. I feel that Teague will step in nicely as the #1 RB to replace Dobbins and both Crowley and Chambers will be nice complements. And as far as the WRs go for the passing game, I also see it similar to this year, as there will be plenty to go around for Olave, Wilson, Williams, Elijah Gardner (if he doesn’t transfer) and 2 of the freshmen in Fleming and Smith-Nxiba. I think both Gee Scott and Cooper will redshirt
Well if that’s true he better jump aboard the boat soon, as both Hall and Bradley want to climb aboard as well
He’s both an OL and a DT Woodshed, and OSU has been recruiting him as an OL
With all the stud DL highly interested in OSU, along with some newer names like Hall and Bradley at the DT position, it appears that Najee Story is being pushed out. I had heard that things cooled at one point and that he wasn’t a sure take, but then also recently heard OSU is still going after him. With Day emphasizing wanting to get more Ohio commits, do you guys think Story will be a part of the 2021 class or will OSU get another highly ranked DE or 2 to complement Jack Sawyer?? I can’t see them taking 5 total DL in that class only 4, 2 DE and 2 DT
What’s happening with the OL kid from Michigan?? Payne?? Haven’t heard much about him lately and he was high on the board as well
They still need to take 2 RBs in the 2021 class despite Williams commitment. Go hard after Pryor and Shipley
I’m on the site pretty much every day bud, sorry I missed this
Let’s not forget that Crowley and Chambers are behind Teague, and those guys are pretty good too
Who the heck is Miyazacki?? Never even heard of him until your post
Zack, and anyone else who wants to comment, regarding the question of how long H&H will stay at OSU, I’d like to know how long you think Larry Johnson will keep coaching?? We talk about how OSU is getting stud WRs because of H&H, but LJ is the main reason OSU continues to get stud D linemen. How many more years to you think he’ll be at OSU??
Ok Zack, here’s another question for next weeks mailbag, or maybe sooner. Now that Styles Jr. has committed to ND how many total WRs will OSU take in the 2021 class? I’m thinking 3-4 and hopefully 4. They already have Ballard, and Harrison Jr., Collins, Egbuke and Stellato are all high interest. I think they can haul in Ballard, Harrison, Stellato and Egbuke and Collins selects Clemson. Thoughts??
I’ve said it 100 times already but I’ll say it again, he should come back for 1 more year. He’d be the top DB on the team and one of the top DBs in the nation. By losing Okudah, Fuller and Arnette after this season the DB position will be a little thin in my opinion. Wade will come in as the man and be able to increase his value and be a top 10 pick in 2021. I’ve said my piece that is all
Zack, I have 2 other names to add to the H-back/slot position and would like your input...
1) Jaelyn Gill and 2) 2021 target Emeke Egbuke. Gill still has a lot of potential and I can see him playing that position. Hopefully he won’t be the odd man out like McCall. And Egbuke is listed as an ATH but I’ve been hearing OSU likes him as a WR. He has a strong interest in OSU too. Which is why I like OSU chances to have Ballard, Harrison Jr, Collins, Stellato and Egbuke all commit. Your thoughts??
I find it hard to believe that Story is not much of interest to OSU now all of a sudden. Kid is a stud and he will be part of the 2021 class
Grammar 101 people. He mentioned Story first then Kirk. Then he said the interest has waned with the latter, which is Kirk. Story = former, Kirk = latter
It’s evidently AJ Kirk, not Story. He said the latter, not former
If Wade is smart, he should follow what Arnette did and stay for another year. He’d be the man at CB next year. Get Cris Carter in his ear now
That’s another thing I’m not liking about this site lately. Andrew Ellis makes his CB for recruits and doesn’t ever give his reasons. I ask him all the time what his reasons are but he never explains himself
What I would like to know is why the hell are people commenting that Bradford isn’t coming now, when in this Hurry Up it was said he liked what he saw, etc. someone please clear this up!!
Zack, you said that you believe that Stellato would be good fit as an H-back or slot, so how will that affect the recruiting of Emeke Egbuke? I believe he’s listed as an ATH but many feel he’d be a great fit as an H-back slot guy as well. Is OSU still recruiting him hard as well? Will OSU take 4 or 5 WRs in the 2021 class? They already have Ballard, and then Harrison Jr, Lorenzo Styles, Beaux Collins, Stellato and Egbuke? 6 stud players and at least 1 will be left out
