DreMont Jones and Parris Campbell not going to the NFL early is the best recruiting news this year.

I'd be fine with Campbell leaving.

I think Campbell is huge for OSU next year. His speed is absolutely unmatched.

Johnnie Dixon could go and I wouldn't mind, but he is back as well.

I just wanna see McCall. If Campbell had even average hands, I'd be ecstatic with him coming back.

KJ Hill is their best WR. Hope to see more of him.

Yeah, KJ Hill is clearly their best IMO.

Campbell and Victor both had a ton of drops this year. That needs to stop, especially with Victor IMO because Campbell can at least impact the running game as well.

I feel the receiver position has been the weak link for the past few seasons. The WR coach Zach Smith is not developing the past few classes. The Buckeyes went from Michael Thomas, Devin Smith, Jalin Marshall and Curtis Samuel to a lot of average guys that have to many drops and can't separate from defenders.

This coach is the "political insert", Earle Bruce's relative, if I'm not mistaken....

I'll wait to see how they perform with an above average passing QB. Hopefully we (and I think we will) will see that this year.

FB recruiting has really gotten interesting with the addition of the early signing period. tOSU just came in with a couple late offers come for positions with depth in the roster and others signed for 2018:

DC area 3 * CB, DJ Brown: https://247sports.com/Player/DJ-Brown-46036339

Texas 3 * RB Maurice Washington: https://247sports.com/Player/Maurice-Washington-90706

It would seem with huge needs in this class at DE and OT that there would be offers to 3 star players in those positions not CB or RB. I know Washington blew up at the Army All Star game but still this is a head scratcher of an offer.

I was thinking the same thing, they already have 3 RBs signed in this class alone.

Sorry, you are correct. The news is I believe that coaches are making an in home visit and are actively recruiting him. The thinking is that he ends up at Nebraska but it appears if he wants in their is a spot.

Maybe Williams is transferring? Still odd as even if that's the case the RB room is still pretty full.

Devin and Jalin dropped a lot of balls in their early years at OSU. Hopefully some of the young guys they have now, like Victor and Mack, emerge as stars...especially now that JT's erratic throwing is history.

I think Mack and KJ Hill will emerge as the clear cut top receivers this year. Campbell needs his touches as well but hopefully on some sweeps, reverses, and quick tosses because he simply can't catch

I agree, Bluth. Mack seems to be the only guy OSU has that can go up and make a contested catch. I expect him to play a big role next year.

Many of the tOSU WRs were highly regarded coming out if HS, their production though... I asked a NFL agent what is the hardest position in football to project from one level to another and he said hands down OL. But he thinks that because of the huge gap in talent level for DBs that WRs are higher on the list than most think though.

Regarding Washington: I read that OSU is recruiting him at CB.

I guess that would make a little more sense. That tells me Patrick Surtain Jr. has absolutely no interest in OSU.

Now if they can pick up one of the OTs that they are after then they can feel really good about this class.

I think they will get Walker. Getting both would be amazing but I doubt that happens.

Olave is a great pick up... I wonder who is going to go now that's on scholly because I think we are already 2 over the limit.

Yeah, Olave seems to be a great add. Tavion Thomas, 3 star RB from Dayton has decommited from Oklahoma and has an official visit on Friday to OSU. I really don't get why they'd be looking to add another RB??
