    There’s telling a kid “no, you won’t be a WR here” and there’s telling a kid “we think you’re best suited as a DB, if you’re wanting to be a WR maybe we can see what happens”.

    At the same time you have Notre Dame telling him he’s one of their top priorities at WR.

    Does he like Notre Dame? Of course he does. However, he’s also being told what he wants to hear from the Notre Dame staff much more directly than from the Ohio State staff. That’s playing a big role here.

    So you think he doesn't have a committable offer? Other schools are telling him exactly what you wrote. It's a great ploy for ND and it might actually work. OSU takes this kid as waterboy immediately. Watch the film. No way you turn that skill away.

    No way our coaches are telling him that. This kid is too darn talented. He is a take at any position.

    buchtelgrad04 Pain is an opinion.

    I don’t think he has a committable offer at WR today. If he loosened his stance on playing WR in college, they’d probably take him today.

    Whatever you choose to believe is definitely your right. I’d just say that this situation has been referenced multiple times by those in the know. Sometimes a little reading between the lines is required.

    Well then I guess our staff is making one big mistake. I'd like to see a quotes though from Style himself confirming this.. I don't trust Rivals,247,or ESPN...any recruiting 100 percent. If you do you need to stop. Those sites CB kids for hype and clicks. I mean the LSU guys on 247 said Rick's was living in Louisiana when he was living in Cali.

    I am not believing he doesn't have a committable at WR until it comes from the horses mouth. Alot of speculation really. The "insiders" are wrong all the time.

    Quarterback? Defensive tackle? Punter?

    Ohio State has a wealth of talent at almost every position. Ohio State has a great and deep class coming in 2020. Ohio State can afford to be very selective with future recruits. Actually, I'm quite glad that Ohio State is in the position to pass on a top-100 recruit, for whatever reason. You should be glad as well.

    Hasn't worked out so well for our RB recruiting this year. That's the Gamble with OOS kids. That's why you take the in state kids worthy right away. Same thing happened with Nester last year on the OL. You have to be careful with this type of mentality. No way you turn down in state talent like that. We need WR's badly anyways.

    If Babb is a Med Schollie and Harris/Gardiner transfer We could have 6-7 scholarship WR's on the roster next Fall. They need at least 5 if not 6 WR's in next year's class. Olave and Wilson are likely only 3 year players.

    2019/20/21 Notre Dame has only 1 WR that is 4 star....I think only 2 other WR commits and they were low 3's. Great opportunity to come in and compete early on at a high profile program that has had success at the WR position, on national TV every week, unlimited Lucky Charms 4L, a lot to like.

    And if this kid was a running back, he might be a huge target for us....

    Olave is from California. Wilson is from Texas. Looks like the Buckeye staff won those bets.

    Am I missing something? Even if both those transfers happen, and I don't know of any rumors that they will, OSU will have Olave, Wilson, Gill, Williams, Fleming, Cooper, Smith-Njigba, Scott, & Martinez. That's 9.

    Actually 2020 RB recruiting is doing fine. 2020 was a luxury year for us at RB after getting Crowley and Steele in 2019(and both are excelling). 2021 is the year where OSU NEEDS to take 2 RBs. If OSU closes with William's and Gibbs than none of that talk matters about missing on Robinson and knighton. And as far as Styles goes, there are just more talented players ahead of him on the board. It's not difficult to see. We dont need to pursue a kid just because hes from OH. He is talented, but so are the Egbuka, Harrison Jr., Collins, etc, the 2020 WR class shows that Hartline knows what hes doing. I trust the coaches evaluation
