    16 composite top 100 players and one who is barely outside of the top 100. Wow! The only thing I hope to see different is one of the LB’s, Carter or Lewis, in the class. I feel like they are more of a need. I understand that Johnson is likely to play LB, but one of those two would be nice!

    New offer out there...........


    Pat Coogan, a 6-foot-5, 275-pound offensive tackle from Marist High School in Chicago, became the fourth player in this cycle from Illinois to receive an offer from the Buckeyes. Coogan has been in contact with the Buckeyes since the middle of the fall, and he had planned on visiting Columbus this spring before the recruiting suspensions were put in place.

    But on Monday, Ryan Day called up Coogan to give him the offer, which left Coogan “very excited,” he told Eleven Warriors. “It was just a very happy moment for me.

    “(Coach Day) didn’t say much, but he made sure I knew he wants me to be on their team. He said I will fit in great and be able to thrive.”

    Coogan and Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa have been building a relationship over the last few months, and their bond has become pretty strong.

    “He’s great. Very personable guy,” Coogan said. “(We talk) almost every day. We have a great relationship.”

    Coogan is ranked as the No. 45 offensive tackle in the nation, the No. 14 prospect in Illinois, and he sits at No. 445 overall. His rankings, though, don't match an offer sheet of 25 programs, which is highlighted by Stanford, Notre Dame, Oregon, Duke and Oklahoma State in addition to the Buckeyes.

    Many scouts believe his rankings are set to rise over the next year (though if the camp circuit is affected by the coronavirus pandemic, that could hurt his chances there) and that he is a riser in the 2021 class. Coogan is likely to see his offer sheet increase further, and that's one reason Day and Studrawa have been building that relationship since the fall and are offering him now – the early impressions could go far as Coogan rises.

    But still, even if those rankings do rise, Coogan is a developmental tackle or guard (he plays left guard at Marist) who has good fundamentals and a quick first step off the ball that a college program can work with.

    As our own Colin Hass-Hill pointed out on Tuesday, the Buckeyes are not opposed to building a core of developmental offensive linemen so Coogan is certainly an attractive option in that regard.

    From what BK kind of intimates in response to a question in the above link the Buckeyes would take Hudson Wolfe over Derrick Davis if it came down to only one spot. Kind of surprised to read that but BK says they really want two TEs and they really like Wolfe.

    That’s actually super surprising.

    That class would have an overall ranking (247 Composite) of 326.55, with an average per recruit of 95.44, both of which would be the best ever. Not just Ohio State, but any team, any year, since the 247 Composite began.

    That class would be ridiculous ... but it is also totally realistic. There are no long shots on the list, and only a couple who might not be Ohio State "leans" at this point.

    Seriously it is realistic.. I look at that class and think "who is a toss up" and there's not many.

    Plus it could get even stronger. If we have the two 5 star DL come on board then again that might make us more appealing for a kid like Grimes.

    So you think the Adeleye interest is real? I really want to believe it because he’s such a good prospect but it seems like he enjoys playing the game. However, he and Wilcoxson seem to be solid friends and Wilcoxson seems like a matter of if rather than when.

    I don’t think he fits the type of kid they’ve recruited the last few years. If it were strictly my guess, I’d probably not have him on there. BUT...people who know way more about things than I’ll ever dream of continue to suggest he’ll be in, so I’ll roll with them.

    I feel the same about Wilcoxson, but like Greene said, he never would have decommitted if he hadn’t been given some sort of assurance there was a spot for him here. The real question at DB is going to be what happens if a guy like Davies or Grimes want in? At that point I’d have to think Wilcoxson or Dunn might be in jeopardy of not having a spot.

    Good stuff; personally I’m convinced Grimes stays SEC; Davies goes to Texas or stays out west. But like you said: others know way more. I just enjoying following it and speculating.

    I think Davonte Smith is a really nice prospect for Coombs to mold as well as Davis if he stays in the backfield.

    I don’t know. These seem like good problems we are considering. Class is unreal without Grimes; it’s unfair with him.

    J.Johnson has been told he will NOT play LB but will be given a chance somewhere in the def.backfield. According to Wiltfong today TLewis will not be offered. No reason given, but some of the posters allege some nasty stuff in his recent past. Most of the gurus say our chances for Carter are on life support. The point of all this? Bucks are still looking for a LB.

    There was a rumor.
    And I emphasize rumor, that he got physical with a female teacher.

    mods if this violates board protocol please delete and issue me a red card.
