    Given that Day talked him up today I decided to watch his HS film. Dude makes some plays for sure. Always around the ball and looks like a good open field type tackler and aggressive. Didn't watch many cover plays.

    Keep coming young one. Walk toward the light.

    His HS film is deceiving because he played LB then, and was tasked with stopping the run and pass rushing, hence why no coverage shown. I think that it's very interesting that he's been able to turn himself into more of a cover S in college after having little experience in that role in HS, and not attending many camps either.

    Dude could stick people though that's for sure. I hope he wins it!

    Agreed, my buddy was telling me about him when he got the OSU offer, that that was his signature, being a ferocious hitter, but he'd need a few years to get used to the coverage aspect of the S position.

    Few years later... and here we are.

    He worked for his offer and he's on the cusp of beating out a lot of higher rated kids. Have to love those kids

    The talent we have in the secondary is off the charts. Hearing good things about Reip as well.

    That's honestly my vote at S. I like Wint and his hitting, but Riep to me has the total package at S. But having both is a good problem to have

    I still think it’s Pryor who gets the first nod

    Film Study: Ohio State has a new base defense

    Wint thriving in the new system

    The last takeaway is less focused on schematics (though I will talk about them a bit) and more on individual performance. Specifically, the individual performance of Jahsen Wint, the safety who was notoriously pushed into a starting role early last season despite being pretty obviously not ready for that role yet. He struggled, fell back into a backup role, and garnered quite a bit of ire from Buckeye fans that probably should’ve been directed at the coaches that put him in that spot.

    Now, Wint and most of the defensive unit is getting a much needed clean slate.

    Wint was probably the biggest winner on Saturday, as he brought the Horseshoe to an ovation twice after he snatched two late half interceptions—one from Matt Baldwinand the other from Chris Chugunov. Let’s break down those interceptions.

    See video in link (below)

    The first is mostly just a poor decision from Matthew Baldwin. Baldwin either doesn’t see or just ignores the double coverage, and Wint makes a nice catch on the sidelines for a pretty easy pick. Even though Baldwin made it pretty easy on him, Wint does still make a nice play here, reading his eyes and moving over from his deep zone to the sideline to make the play.

    The second pick, however, was spectacular.

    See video in link (below)

    Ohio State drops, once again, into a full zone. The Buckeyes are in that 4-2-5 with three corners again, and Wint is serving as the rover on the left side, paired with cornerback Tyreke Johnson and linebacker Dallas Gant. Gant and Johnson are both playing in zones right near the first down marker, which takes away Garrett Wilson’s quick slant.

    What that zone can’t account for, and the best way to beat it is with deep passes to the sideline. Ohio State, however, has Jahsen Wint. This play design is perfect to beat the zone, with Jaelen Gill running a pretty corner route that should be open. It isn’t, because Wint flashed the freak athleticism that got him to Columbus, made up seven yards in about a second, and snatched an easy first down right out of the air.

    That’s what this defense was missing last season, above all else. Everything was so complex, so overdesigned, so tight. That’s fine in the NFL, and it’s fine if you have to make up for a talent deficiency. Ohio State doesn’t have to do that. Ohio State has athletes all over the field, and there’s no reason to limit that athleticism by throwing three linebackers out on the field every play, blitzing with them, and forcing your safeties and corners to play press coverage. Jahsen Wint was built to play in a defense that plays cover 2, in a defense that lets him roam and doesn’t force him to be excellent at man coverage or tackling. Ohio State’s new defensive staff seems to understand that, and if that’s the case, Wint isn’t the only Buckeye headed for a breakthrough in 2019.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Really makes you scratch your head, right? Was the scheme last year really that bad? Rhetorical.
