    And now I have dropped Jordan.

    Wanted him to stay as much as anyone. Not only a great talent, but we now have 11 scholarship OL on the roster. I don't recall ever seeing the number that low.

    We have more LB and WR than OL.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Yeah I just posted something in the ‘19 recruiting thread about going after that big Juco kid from England. Need some OL depth pronto.

    Ohio State Scholarship Count: Where The Buckeyes Stand

    January is a month of transition in the college football world. As one group of players is leaving every FBS program, another is entering.

    Inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, draft-eligible players have until January 15 to decide whether they will return for another year or declare themselves eligible for the NFL Draft.

    And in high schools across the country, talented seniors are deciding whether to sign with the Buckeyes on National Signing Day, February 6.

    It’s a delicate balancing act, because the Buckeyes have to be at no more than 85 scholarship players on campus by the start of fall camp.

    Between now and then, the NFL players will leave and others will transfer. Ryan Day’s staff will bring new recruits, and possibly transfers in as well.

    But by the time fall camp opens, the numbers have to work out to 85.

    After Dwayne Haskins, Michael Jordan, Mike Weber, and Dre’Mont Jones declared themselves eligible for the NFL Draft and Justin Fields officially joined the program, the Buckeyes stand at 87 scholarship players.

    Others, like Kendall Sheffield, Damon Arnette, and K.J. Hill still have to announce whether they are coming back.

    Offensive line prospect Doug Nester is verbally committed for 2019, but has not signed his Letter of Intent, so he’s not included in that number.

    My guess on why my number of 84 is lower than the 87 cited above is that their number includes guys like Saunders, walk-ons who were granted scholarships. I never worry about those because 1) they are year by year and can always be dropped and 2) I never know who has been granted such scholarships.

    I think you’re also missing the TE Hamilton Fr.
