    Not hard.....but when u watch tape, u can see a guy living on his size and athleticism at HS level, versus a guy with a “nasty streak”. I’ll take the Wyatt Davis HS video please. Unreal.

    I remember a LOT of shade like that hurled at Darryl Baldwin. Maybe one of the least liked recruits in osu history, given no shot on either side of the ball. And that was back in the days of program guys being recruited fairly often.

    Fast forward and he anchored a title run. And then when he was gone, the O sputtered to a halt, with the most talented roster in school history returning + adding braxton as a gadget player. With Curtis samuel as the 6th-7th offensive weapon.

    You make a good point, I just have to credit one of the most undervalued recruits we'll ever see, and how vital he was to that title run.

    Some guys are indeed nasty and I do trust the coaches. Wyatt Davis is a guy who immediately came to mind that you could tell was an absolute monster.

    I was just commenting in general about the average film breakdown of what seems like everyone on the internet who watches film of every recruitable HS OL.

    Random thought from surfing the Buckeye sites today - if you’re going to masquerade as an insider, at least wait 24 hours to lift some else’s story and pass it off as your own. It’d be a whole lot less obvious.

    The college football world has mostly moved on from the Class of 2021, but that isn't the case for the teams that are still chasing the country's No. 1 overall prospect according to 247 Sports. Washington five-star J.T. Tuimoloau has long been waiting to visit some college campuses. The dead period has prevented that from happening, but he's now expected to make trips to places like Columbus and Tuscaloosa before deciding on his college destination.


    The No. 1 player on our 2022 recruiting board has held the top spot since its debut back in November. Since that time, the recruitment of Charlestown, Indiana's Kiyaunta Goodwin has officially exploded. The 6-foot-7, 300-pound tackle with five-star potential has offers from all of the country's top programs and has narrowed his list down to five. Ohio State, Clemson, Alabama, Kentucky, and Michigan State are all in the race for the nation's fifth-best tackle and No. 47 overall prospect. But the top competition and perhaps even the leader – at least at the moment – isn't one of the usual suspects.


    Tony Alford should have a tailback committed by the end of June. It sure seems like he's going to grab one of Hayden or Singleton. Adding a player like Hampton to the mix would be a heck of a one-two punch if there's room for another pair in the backfield.


    Ohio State and Clemson have had their share of back and forths of late. Julian Fleming and Bryan Bresee are just a few of the more heralded names that were sought after by both programs. The Buckeyes got the best of the Tigers in January when Justin Fields tossed six touchdown passes in the Sugar Bowl. Now, Ryan Day and Kerry Coombs are looking to deliver a few more blows on the trail.


    The June visits are going to be huge for a number of reasons. Day has commitments from three five-star prospects with each one of them residing in national hotbeds outside of Ohio. There's been little doubt surrounding the status of Quinn Ewers, Caleb Burton, and Florida's Jaheim Singletary, but the Ohio State staff knows that the rest of the country will continue in their pursuits.

    For the first time since March of last year, there is real hope that the dead period will come to an end, likely on May 31. When and if that happens, the Buckeyes will open up campus again for recruits and families eager for a chance to see what Ohio State is all about.

    Ryan Day and his coaching staff are equally eager.

    “We are dying to get these people on campus and be around them,” Day said Monday. “Host them on visits and have meals with them and laugh with them, look them in the eye and show them our culture. That’s the biggest thing: To see our players and see what’s here. That’s been hard for all of us.”
    “People are dying to get on campus, but we are in a dead period right now,” Day said. “We’re always going to do things the right way here. If there are people out there who aren’t, then shame on them. If recruits want to go to a place like that, that is going to go bend the rules if that’s what’s going on, then more power to them. But that’s not how we’re going to do it here.

    “We’re always going to do things in a first-class manner and be above board with everything.”

    No. 1: Ohio State needs to get visit scheduled for J.T. Tuimoloau

    This item could be marked incomplete, but that’s not the fault of anyone at Ohio State. As long as the NCAA refuses to officially announce the return of recruiting visits, it’s hard to blame anyone for a lack of a planned visit.

    No. 2: Buckeyes need to avoid panic button with 11 early commitments

    Sometimes in recruiting, no news feels like bad news. But that’s not the case here. The Buckeyes want time to grow relationships and to fully evaluate talent. There’s no reason to panic when June brings promise of a chance to do those things.

    No. 3: Ohio State verbals need to cement plans for Buckeyes Bash 2.0

    The weekend of June 4 is shaping up to be a major one for Ohio State. It is going to be led by the Buckeyes 2022 verbals. Every member of that class is planning to be in Columbus to welcome back recruiting, and they’ll be meeting a number of top targets at the same time. Xavier Nwankpa, Toriano Pride, Omari Abor and Dominick James have scheduled official visits that weekend. Other big names will follow suit, and that’s all but guaranteed.

    Ohio State needs concrete answer on dead period

    Can Buckeyes get visit from Kiyaunta Goodwin on books?

    Ohio State needs Class of 2023 kick-start

  15. ScriptOhio

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    How good have the Buckeyes three linebacker commitments become?

    Can Ohio State targets in Class of 2023 establish real chemistry in person before key visits?

    Can any under-the-radar defensive backs emerge as Ohio State caliber?

    Can Aamil Wagner be physical enough against big-time defensive linemen?

    Will Kaden Saunders leave no doubt at wide receiver?

    Can a 2025 quarterback steal the show?

    Just sayin' I counted 6 questions.....:biggrin2:
