WinstonSmith has a little shameless behaviour in the past
To suggest Ohio kids are for some reason superior to non-Ohio kids is dumb. Urban just locked in crazy good back-to-back classes. The school is located in Ohio, so any time there is big talent in the state, of course I'd like them to keep them at OSU, but above all else I want him to get the best guys he can, regardless of where they're from.

Big reason OSU won national championship was EE who was a Meyer recruit. Plus would have more than likely won the NC the following year if OSU had been invited to the play-offs. Meyer is going to take the best recruits where ever their from, I just think this shows how much a " talent drain " that is happening in Ohio football.

I though Urban's 2013 class may have had something to do with that title. Here are a few decent players from that class:

Bosa (Florida)
Zeke (Missouri)
Vonn Bell (Georgia)
Eli Apple (New Jersey)
Jalin Marshall (Ohio)
Billy Price (Ohio)
Darron Lee (Ohio)
JT Barrett (Texas)
Tyquan Lewis (North Carolina)
Dontre Wilson (Texas)

Can't win 'em all. Davidson Academy's Ani Izuchukwu committed to Mississippi State over Ohio State & Alabama.

I would certainly suggest that Ohio football, hence the kids in OH, are superior to most states. Hard to argue that they are not a top 5 state for recruiting.

The majority of blue chip, 5-star Ohio players end up at OSU. I don't think Meyer has any trouble there. I think Ohio sometimes launches below its weight there, and that's why he has to go to TX, GA, FL, CA, etc.

Yet there were several games in which EE was irrelevant because smart defenders consistently were able to bait JT into keeping and then containing him. Go back and watch the games.

Our O-line was great, EE was great, and the Meyer scheme failed in the games EE was not a factor. Saban D would have stopped JT that year. Cardale and Hermann maximized EE while our D was stifling. THOSE THINGS TOGETHER are why they won the first playoff.

I think with the loss of Kerry Combs to NFL, we will see a DRASTIC drop off in recruiting overall. Especially in the footprint of Ohio and Michigan. Tough to replace a HS coaching legend with the contacts that he had. Urban's years may be numbered if he does not step it up nationally.

.....wut? Outside the Jackson Carmen's of the world, Ohio's top kids are almost always going to be a Buckeye, no matter what assistants are on staff. And have you not paid attention to Meyer's recruiting classes?

2015- 14/26 (54%) were from out of state
2016- 16/25 (64%) were from out of state
2017- 15/21 (71%) were from out of state
2018- 21/26 (81%) were from out of state
He has stepped it up nationally.

Combs just left knucklehead! He was a huge part of recruiting all of these guys nationally for Urban. Get your facts straight.

Combs main area for recruiting was Michigan and Ohio. Sounds like you need to get your facts straight.

That is where his main contacts are from, but he was the catalyst for the bucks recruitment. One of the most dynamic recruiters in all of college football.

Not sure about the name calling since we are on the same team, but I have been reading some of your threads and really question if you played the game and your knowledge. Chill out and go Bucks!

No, that's where he spent the majority of his time recruiting.

Do you think with Chambers coming to Columbus, that it will hurt with some of the other top RB's?

Seems like Ford is bothered by it based on the Rivals report I read. There weren't any direct quotes from Ford though so it might just be Rivals trying to drum up some drama for clicks and $$$.

tOSU is not the only program that could be facing QB depth issues in 2018. It looks like 'Bama may also have QB challenges of their own if you believe what Daddy Hurts is saying: https://www.cbssports.com/college-fo...-starting-job/

...The elder Hurts seems to think highly of his son's impact in the transfer market.

"Well, he'd be the biggest free agent in college football history," he said, according to the report.


So if both Burrows and Hurts hits the open market in May which would be more sought after? It probably depends on the system but I'm guessing Burrow as he can play right away and Hurts will no longer have the weapons around him to bail him out that he did at 'Bama.

Hurts would obviously be more sought after assuming both were eligible to play right away. Burrows is an unknown quantity, we know Hurts can play. He's inconsistent, but has shown flashes of being great.

Burrow can play immediately as a grad transfer. I don't think you can say the same for Hurts.

Right. I'd still say Hurts would be more sought after though.

It really depends upon the offense.

I assume you guys must mean the widest range of possible teams ?

Those systems best suited to Hurts would be found more widespread around the NCAA today, but there could be greater individual team impact at some of Burrow's potential matches.

He can track three targets easily and still peek at a fourth, and hit them on time with touch. That is a rare gift - ask Josh Allen

The majority of teams would take Hurts over Burrows at this point. He's more proven. Of course Burrows would certainly be sought after as well.

But I'm not sure I'm ready to hype Burrows that much. We have no clue whether he can do any of those things in a college game against real competition. Lots of guys look great in high school/spring ball/mop up duty and never make that leap. Certainly hoping he does though, whether with OSU or elsewhere.

I don't know, Hurts has had basically a NFL team around him and he has not shined all too much. Remember, the last time we saw him he was stinking out the joint to the point that he was pulled in the National title game for an unproven Freshman.

He is definitely inconsistent and sucked in the most recent national title game. But Hurts is more of a proven quantity, and has shown flashes of being great against top competition. Burrows has shown flashes of being great against Bowling Green's 3rd string.

Regardless of talent around him, these are pretty solid numbers for a true freshman/sophomore QB.
