    I should say I would just to trigger our resident foodies but, no...that's sacrilege.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Either Wolfe just committed, or Wolfe is a silent commit and Jager Burton just committed... or maybe both.

    That’s my tea leaf reading on this.

    Or maybe both, or just one of them, or neither of them.

    It's hard to tell.

    From Ellis regarding DB recruiting:
    Regarding Davies spot on the CB board.
    It sounds very much like the staff is holding out to swing for the fences on a guy like Grimes or Hancock before they fill up the DB class.

    10 Buckeye Commits In Top-100 Of New Rivals Rankings


    The newly-updated Rivals 250 was just released. And just like pretty much everything else for this year’s class, the Buckeyes are in a dominating top position.

    Ohio State currently sits atop the team rankings with 2,642 points. Tennessee is second with 2,058, and Clemson is currently a distant third at 1,494.

    There is a bigger point gap between the Buckeyes and Tigers than there is between Clemson and the No. 58 team in the nation, Virginia Tech (360 points).

    DE Jack Sawyer is the highest-rated current Ohio State commit, as the No. 8 player in the nation.

    Among other Buckeye commits, newly-christened 5-stars DE Tunmise Adeleye and OL Donovan Jackson are now Nos. 15 and 16 in the country.

    Kyle McCord, the quarterback who has been committed to the Buckeyes for more than a year already, is now ranked the No. 26 player in the country.

    CB Jakailin Johnson is ranked 35th in the country, WR Marvin Harrison, Jr. is 42nd, RB TreVeyon Henderson is 67th, OL Ben Christman is 74th, DT Michael Hall is 77th, RB Evan Pryor is 79th.

    That gives the Buckeyes 10 commits in the top-100 of the nation, the most of any program.

    And it doesn’t take long to find more future Buckeyes past the top-100. LB Reid Carrico is now ranked as the No. 101 overall player in the class, and WR Jayden Ballard is No. 103.

    SAF Andre Turrentine is 171st in the nation, and the final current Buckeye commit in the top-250.

    That puts 13 of the Buckeyes’ 18 commits among the nation’s elite, and fully two-thirds of that class in the top 103 in the country.

    But the news could potentially get even better for the Buckeyes before National Signing Day. That’s because OSU is currently either a front-runner or strong contender for a number of other elite prospects.

    DE J.T. Tuimoloau ranks No. 4 in the nation, and WR Emeka Egbuka is No. 11 overall.

    TE Hudson Wolfe is 40th in the country, DE Tywone Malone is 44th, OL J.C. Latham is 75th, and LB/SAF Derrick Davis is 81st, among others.

    While the Buckeyes might not land every single one of those players, even adding half of them to the current commits would put Ohio State’s 2021 class among one of the absolute best in college football history.

    For comparison’s sake, the entire rest of the Big Ten only has four top-100 commitments total at the moment.

    Ohio State defensive back recruiting about talent, not positions

    More and more the discussion around Ohio State and its 2021 recruiting class is focusing on numbers and the shrinking number of available spots in this recruiting cycle.

    That’s understandable, I guess, since there is only so much room. Ohio State has 17 players already in the commitment column, and the country’s top-ranked class looks to be holding a few of those spots for long-time top targets like Emeka Egbuka, J.C. Latham, Jager Burton and J.T. Tuimolaou — meaning the remaining, more flexible spots, are sort of up for grabs.

    There’s no position group better represented among the 17 commitments than the secondary unit, which has five of the Buckeyes verbals in it. It’s a talented, versatile group that includes a couple of prospects capable of playing a couple of defensive spots. Yes, J.K. Johnson is almost assuredly a cornerback, but the other four commitments in the defensive backfield could move around. Devonta Smith plays safety primarily now at Cincinnati LaSalle, but he’s likely a cornerback in Columbus. Andre Turrentine and Jantzen Dunn are likely to line up at safety in college but can play outside as well. A number of analysts believe that Jaylen Johnson, who plays safety and cornerback for the Lancers, is someone who could move to linebacker at the next level.

    The point? There’s not much value in worrying too much about where Ohio State recruits are projected to play. If there are defensive backs out there still being recruited by the Buckeyes, they have to be fast, aggressive, long, quick and instinctive. Those are the qualifications, not necessarily whether they are listed as a cornerback or a safety by national recruiting websites.

    Would Ohio State like to bring in one more pure cornerback in this class? Probably, sure. But the fact is there aren’t as many of those guys out there that are cut-and-dried cornerbacks as some might believe, at least in the eyes of the Buckeyes staff. Being that guy, a pure lockdown corner, is rare. That’s what makes prospects like J.K. Johnson, Tony Grimes, Jordan Hancock and a few others elite.
