    Thought Scott Frost was going to bring the Children of the Korn back to prominence?

    They had some momentum going into the 2nd half of the season last yr. Assumed there would be a jump up in recruiting in yr 2. Guess not.

    Maybe they stole his recruits when those people broke in to Frost’s house.

    To be completely accurate, Michigan held the 2020 Big Ten Recruiting Title from June 27th to June 29th. Two days.

    Currently, Ohio State's class has a score of 258.55, and Michigan's class has a score of 243.90. If Michigan were somehow able to land the nation's #1 overall recruit, Jordan Burch, then their class would have a score of 256.14, which would still be 2.4 points behind Ohio State's class. And don't worry - Jordan Burch ain't considering Michigan.

    In fact, the highest-ranking recruit who can be considered a Michigan "lean" is New Jersey athlete RJ Moten, who is ranked as the #329 overall prospect in the country (89.37 rating). A commitment from Moten would bring Michigan's class score all the way up to ... 246.45 points, or 12.1 points behind Ohio State.

    If/when the Buckeyes receive expected commitments from Lathan Ransom (96.25), Kourt Williams II (93.32), Cameron Martinez (88.84), Josh Fryar (88.42), Joe Royer (87.65), and Mitchell Melton (86.68), then Ohio State's class would have 21 commitments with a total score of 286.60. (And that's not even considering possible commitments from Bijan Robinson (98.99), Mookie Cooper (96.43), Jacolbe Cowan (93.80), and Kedrick Bingley-Jones (93.43), which would push the Buckeyes' class over 300 points.)

    Let's also say that Michigan gets their top remaining targets - ATH R.J. Moten (89.37), WR Brenden Rice (88.62), DE Kenny Mestidor (87.21), and DE Kris Jenkins (87.02). At that point, Michigan would have 24 recruits (3 more than Ohio State) with a total score of 249.92 (over 8.5 points less than Ohio State's current class score, nearly 40 points behind Ohio State's class score including only current Buckeye "leans", and 50+ points behind Ohio State's probable final class score of 300 or higher).

    In other words, even after the Mob Move Mania, Michigan has virtually no chance of catching Ohio State. When Signing Day comes around, the OSU-UM recruiting battle for 2020 will look a lot like a 62-39 shellacking.

    Now in terms of average recruit ranking, Ohio State has a score of 92.62 points per recruit (4th best in the nation), and Michigan has a score of 89.55 points per recruit. That's a 3+ point per recruit edge for Ohio State. That's huge.

    Incidentally, if we remove kicking specialists from the rankings (not sure why they're even ranked, since they all have scores in the low 80's or lower), then Ohio State's average per recruit increases to 93.40, which would be 3rd best in the country.

    Raym was one of Michigan's top remaining targets. Looks like the MOB Move has stalled out a bit.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    A garbage marketing gimmick by the rainman in which they tried to disguise the highly mediocre nature of their recruiting class by arranging for a large clump of players to commit at around the same time.

    The best part is the lame hype around it they tried to put out there... this tweet will be the gift that keeps on giving.
