    I think they already excluded Siebert.

    From a quick glance, no oversigning underhanded behavior is needed to make 85, and they surely know if there are any upcoming transfers that will not be official until spring/June.

    Getting Holmes would be an absolute coup.

    I was going by the chart here so if it’s only 3-4 that seems a lot better.

    If they decide to take Holmes or another transfer, he'd probably be taking Phillips' spot that he gave back. There's also the chance that Martinez's spot comes free as well.

    I’m not gonna be a dick, but there’s certainly 5-7 guys on roster that OSU could easily cut bait with and nobody would even know.

    It’s a little bit of new territory with the transfer portal, but the upside is, with some of the juniors/seniors on team with eligibility, they could have immediate eligibility elsewhere where their services would be welcomed. There are also some younger guys (sophomores) who have been bypassed by freshmen, and likely to be bypassed by incoming true freshmen.

    So room can be made, IMO. You don’t turn down a talent like Darnay Holmes or Jonah Jackson for that matter, when you’re chasing championships. Kind of the nature of the beast at this point.

    The Temple DE being referenced is Quincy Roche by the way.

    I wouldn’t say no. Kid had 13 sacks last year and has elite burst off the ball. A little smaller than your typical DE at 240 lbs, but he’s basically what I’m hoping they turn Baron Browning into.

    Will be interesting to see where Roche ends up though. I say that because he was a 3 down player at Temple, and I’m not sure that’s the case in P5 football. The knock on him is how he holds edge against the run. Seems he’d be more of a pass rushing specialist at an elite P5 school.

    I was just looking at the scholarship chart and DT is a concern for me. We are thin up there

    I don’t think we are thin as much as we are unproven.

    Guys like Togai, Garrett, Vincent were all very highly rated guys. All have gotten decent PT too. I think it’s just about seeing them get starter reps. I don’t have much concern about the DL in general.....think it’ll be a bit more by committee and back to more of a “rushmen” package which was not used frequently in 2019.

    I expect Tyreke Smith to kick down on 3rd downs next year, like we used to do with the Bosa’s on occasion.
