2020 tOSU Recruiting Discussion

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    It’s outrageous to believe that Ohio only has 6 kids worthy of being a 4/5 star recruit.

    No it's not. They really like football down south. Just ask them.

    Is this skewed based on the location of some of the academies like IMG? Or did they correct for that?

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Meh. Not really. Definitely not too odd on a single year basis.

    I agree that Ohio State must continue to recruit nationally, but unless Ohio is having a VERY down aberrational year, those numbers seem absurd.

    Here's a chart of state of origin for NFL player (2016):

    Similar 2019 data:


    Obviously there's not perfect correlation, but ...

    Where’s PA? Doesn’t OSU’s 2020 class have 5 star WR Fleming from there? Wonder how accurate this list really is?

    In general, OH doesn’t have as many as CA, TX, FL but the rest changes a good bit from year to year. TSUN with 10? 4 more than OH? Not a regular occurance.

    GA with 34? More than CA? And yet only 6 in SC right next door...

    AZ with 9?! VA only 6?!

    The Hurry-Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.


    Cameron Martinez’s recruitment over the past month and a half is a microcosm of Ohio State’s approach with recruits.

    In the same instances with Paris Johnson Jr. and Lejond Cavazos – Johnson’s commitment was very much in limbo following the retirement of Urban Meyer, and Cavazos decommitted following Meyer’s departure – the coaching staff stayed patient, didn’t panic and didn’t offer ultimatums to them.

    It’s all part of the process that Ryan Day has been building his program around. The staff wants recruits to take their time making decisions because they only want them there if they're there for the long haul. Having an easier way out of a program, with the way the transfer portal is set up, has made that approach a more effective way to recruit, and it will pay off down the road.

    At least, that’s what this staff is banking on, and we’re going to find out in the 2021 and 2022 cycles if Day’s approach here is a sustainable one. Outside of individual recruitments, that’s probably the most interesting overarching recruiting storyline over the next two years, and Day gave more insight to that approach on Wednesday.

    “I think in today's day and age, whether you sign or not, if the kid's not happy or doesn't really pick the school for the right reasons, he's going to end up in the transfer portal and leave anyways,” Day said. “It's not just about getting the kid to sign on the dotted line. It's not that way anymore. Now, it's having trust and having the relationship with the family and common respect for each other that things are going to go in a certain way.

    “And I think that's the way it is with Cam, and I think that's the way it is with all the recruits in that they know they're going to be treated the same way they're recruited – I mean, treated the same way they're here as when they were recruited.”

    As with all philosophies, you gonna win some (Cam Martinez) and you gonna lose some (Bijan Robinson). Let us hope Ohio State continues to win their share
