    I'm pretty sure Padilla or Siereveld can play OC

    I’ve also seen Montgomery’s name mentioned as an option at Center. Plus Hinzman in the last class. There will be no shortage of options at Center.

    Monty's first look will be T according to him and in an interview I heard with Ausitn Seireveld.

    If Johnson goes pro, everyone will get a look at Tackle next year.

    The lack of depth on the OLine, specifically at tackle is concerning going forward. I would say moreso than any other position (would also like more corners, but I think the talent level with who OSU has is high, regardless of the low numbers).

    That being said, the time OSU took home the whole thing, they plugged in a former D-lineman at right tackle. Seemed to work out just fine.

    There's work to be done for sure, but I think it'll all work itself out. Frye recruiting this well in his first cycle reaffirms that for me.

    That’s not exactly the best example, because Baldwin was actually a very good lineman in general, regardless of the size coming out of HS. We don’t have a DL that played OL in Hs that I know of.

    It's a great example. Darryl Baldwin was easily one of the lowest ranked and disrespected recruits of the Tressel era (which were not overlapping things in this case), and that was a much less prestigious stretch of recruiting classes.

    He was the reason they had no prayer of repeating for a title. The next year, with far more talent waiting in the wings, they could not replace him and it cost them their most talented team in decades. Ironically because they tried to convert another DL to RT.

    If they could have run the ball, they probably sleep walk until November and wake up to jog through a NC.

    Are you sure it didn’t have anything to do with Ed Warinner being way in over his head as the OC?

    How was he one of the lowest yet he was a 4 star, 10th ranked in OH and 204 in the country. That doesn't sound low ranked...

    like I said, being low ranked was a separate thing from how pessimistic pretty much everyone was about his chances. Not trying to call out or recruiting expert, rather to use his expertise to not only document where he was ranked but how most people viewed him as a prospect. This was not a project witj obvious upside according to most recruitniks. there were questions about how tough he was. He was not viewed as a malik hooker type of guy who was raw but had a lot of upside.

    Obviously he proved all of them wrong.

    See below for his actual ranking.

    Not sure where your number is from but I'm guessing it's something like a composite thrown off by ESPN putting out a list with a small network of people doing the ranking

    National Signing Day 2022 is in the rear view mirror. Ryan Day, Mark Pantoni and the Ohio State staff signed a 2022 recruiting class that is ranked No. 4 in the country in the 247Sports Composite team recruiting rankings.

    For some time now it is full speed ahead with Buckeye 2023 recruiting. The Buckeyes currently have ten 2023 commitments for a class that is ranked No. 4 in the country in the 247Sports Composite team recruiting rankings at this point.

    Bucknuts has done more work and made some changes to the Ohio State 2023 Top Targets and today we look at those Top Targets broken down by position. The Top Targets are recruits who could commit right now to the Buckeyes if they wanted to, or strong possibilities to be able to commit.

    Anyone want to take a stab at how OSU finishes this class? We know at this time it'll be a complete crapshoot
