    I’m having a hard time imagining 7 DBs and/or both the stud safeties coming together although I realize they are filling different roles. Something tells me we don’t end up with 7.

    Birm was pretty adamant in the latest talking stuff episode that the plan is for seven DBs and they have been very clear to every recruit about it, mitigating the impact of negative recruiting because they all already know what the plan is.

    He also emphasized the Nwankpa, Branch, and Stokes were all together in the same room and given a presentation of how they all would be used in the same backfield at the same time—likely Stokes as the deep safety, Branch as the cover safety/nickel, and Nwankpa as the bullet.

    When it comes to four CBs, Coombs likes to heavily rotate his corners, and he has had more success getting players drafted in the first round with that than possibly any other person currently coaching—so in addition to being a great salesman, it’s an easy sell.

    Although it does seem almost too good to be true, I haven’t seen anything but optimism about it coming together. At the very least, I see no reason to worry about it.

    A final thing that Birm made pretty clear is that they are going to take seven, likely even if it’s not the priority targets right now. Toriano Pride was originally the top fourth target at CB, he chose Clemson and Ohio State moved on to an arguably better prospect in Terrance Brooks.

    Excellent points. And Birm knows his stuff.

    But the original “goal” of 7 doesn’t mean they end with 7. And not just because they can’t land the 2 remaining big fish.

    I’m sticking with my gut of 6 DBs.

    I mean....what if by some miracle they get Abor and White that both want in? Or there is an elite OT available late which they hadn’t planned on?

    Many Many variables and 7 seems a luxury they don’t exactly need if they land both remaining safeties.

    So if they were to “only” land six DB’s, hypothetically, would they fill the spot with another position? Are they adamant about capping at 25? Could be that 4th o-lineman

    The Buckeyes’ biggest upward mover was wide receiver Kyion Grayes who moved up 64 spots from No. 111 to No. 47. Also landing a huge bump was defensive back Terrance Brooks who moved 36 spots from No. 102 to No. 66. Three other Ohio State commitments received slight bumps. Linebacker C.J. Hicks went up one spot to No. 44, wide receiver Kojo Antwi improved one spot to No. 72, and Jyaire Brown had a one point bump to No. 131.

    Here's a recap of the past month of recruiting, which has been very good for Ohio State....

    Ohio State hosted eighteen prospects for official visits, including three of their previous verbal commitments (CJ Hicks; Jaheim Singletary; Ryan Turner), and four prospects who committed shortly after their respective official visits (J.T. Tuimoloau; Dallan Hayden; Kojo Antwi; Terrance Brooks); Ohio State also picked up a verbal commitment from Colorado OT George Fitzpatrick, who made an official visit to Columbus in early June.

    The biggest of the recent commitments, of course, was from Washington DL J.T. Tuimoloau, the #1 overall prospect in the Class of 2021. Tuimoloau has already joined the team and should see plenty of action this fall.

    5* 2021 WA DL J.T. Tuimoloau
    4* 2022 TN RB Dallan Hayden
    4* 2022 GA WR Kojo Antwi
    4* 2022 TX OL Kam Dewberry
    4* 2022 GA OL Addison Nichols
    4* 2022 WI OL Billy Schrauth
    4* 2022 FL OL Tyler Booker
    5* 2022 PA DE Enai White
    4* 2022 FL DE Kenyatta Jackson
    5* 2022 FL DT Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy
    4* 2022 OK DT Chris McClellan
    3* 2022 IN DT Kenneth Grant
    5* 2022 OH LB CJ Hicks
    5* 2022 FL DB Jaheim Singletary
    4* 2022 TX DB Terrance Brooks
    4* 2022 FL DB Markeith Williams
    3* 2022 FL DB Ryan Turner
    4* 2022 GA ATH Jake Pope

    Of the uncommitted official visitors, Ohio State is the crystal ball leader for Texas OL Kam Dewberry (75%) and Oklahoma DL Chris McClellan (80%); and Ohio State is presumably the leader for Indiana DL Kenneth Grant (no crystal balls), if he has a Buckeye OFFER.

    Some unofficial visitors of note are listed below. Most of the unofficial visitors were from the Classes of 2023 and 2024, but a few prospects in the current recruiting class also traveled to Columbus on their own dimes: California OL Earnest Greene (official visit September 11th); Indiana DL Caden Curry (no official visit set); and Utah LB Carson Tabaracci (no official visit set), who earned at least an "offer" based on his stellar performance at Ohio State's camp.

    4* 2022 CA OL Earnest Greene
    4* 2022 IN DL Caden Curry
    3* 2022 UT LB Carson Tabaracci
    4* 2023 FL WR Carnell Tate
    4* 2023 TX WR Braylon James
    4* 2023 MO TE Mac Markway
    5* 2023 IA OL Kayden Proctor
    4* 2023 OH OL Luke Montgomery
    4* 2023 NJ OL Chase Bisontis
    4* 2023 CA DE Matayo Uigalelei
    4* 2023 FL DE Derrick LeBlanc
    4* 2023 AL CB AJ Harris
    5* 2023 OH ATH Sonny Styles
    NR 2024 SC QB Jadyn Davis

    A few Ohio State targets have committed elsewhere in the past month:

    4* 2021 CT DE Wilfredo Aybar (Stanford)
    4* 2022 CO RB Gavin Sawchuk (Oklahoma)
    4* 2022 FL OL Tyler Booker (Alabama)
    4* 2022 WI OL Joe Brunner (Wisconsin)
    4* 2022 FL DE Jihaad Campbell (Clemson)
    4* 2022 NC DL Curtis Neal (Wisconsin)
    4* 2022 MO DB Toriano Pride (Clemson)
    4* 2022 TX DB Austin Jordan (Texas)
    4* 2023 FL ATH Treyaun Webb (Oklahoma)​

    The next big recruiting event will be July 28th and 29th - The Buckeye BBQ - and then there will be very little action until official visits resume during the season. I'll keep you posted.
