    I'm wondering whether Mookie Cooper might be our best chance at getting a RB1 this class.

    Running back is about the only gaping hole I see in our recruiting right now.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    If you can see it then a recruit will too and we will get someone decent.

    More than that... we will land someone who's most likely highly rated.

    Lots of football to play and if Dobbins impresses who knows what comes our way.

    2020 RB recruiting is like 2014 QB recruiting.

    RB's are a dime a dozen. Teague is a stud. Crowley and Chambers look pretty good in limited action.

    With the transfer portal I am not concerned at all. If we deem it necessary we can get a transfer.

    Our offense revolves around the passing game. WR and QB recruiting are much more important. I am more worried about QB depth and hope we take a 2nd QB.

    Texas insiders predicting we are getting Bradford. Kid plays against the best competition in the country. He has an elite burst. Top 150 player to some people.

    E.J. Smith is a great APB that plays against Elite talent as well. Great bloodlines and has the intangibles you have to like.

    IMO we get 1 or both of these guys. If we do I'm not losing any sleep.

    Boy o boy look at what Hartlines is assembling. Then look at the OL in the 20 and 21 class. Things are looking just fine IMO.

    Effing right....

    Would love to have Smiths kid in 2020 and Harrisons kid in 2021!

    That would be awesome, had not thought of that. Not that we really need it, but I'm sure that would help with recruiting when HOF NFL players are sending their kids to OSU.

    QB's are a dime a dozen....

    WR's are a dime a dozen....

    DE's are a dime a dozen....

    Game-changing players at any position are rare. That's why Ohio State - who consitently recruits at the highest level - has had only 6 or 7 game-changing RB's since Archie Griffin (that's 44 years and counting). That's why Ohio State's record book is littered with names of forgettable RB's such as Jeff Logan, Paul Campbell, Ricky Johnson, Ricardo Volley, Calvin Murray, Jimmy Gayle, John Wooldridge, Vince Workman, Jaymes Bryant, Dante Lee, Jeff Cothran, Butler By'not'e, Pepe Pearson, Derek Combs, Lydell Ross, Brandon Saine, Boom Herron, Jordan Hall, etc. (all of whom were undoubtedly deemed "studs" back in the day.).

    Let's not pretend that the staff is doing alright in RB recruiting. They are not. And that's by the standard that they themselves set. They have missed on all their top targets, and also their secondary targets. At this point, they are relying on luck, not skill. Good luck to them.

    Meh, I’d rather there be a system in place wherein more pedestrian talent can find success on a consistent basis.

    More rare than finding the generational talent at running back is becoming a sustainable machine in which the Boom Herrons, Brandon Saine, Pittmans and Jordan Halls of the world can contribute positively.

    If that’s the one place we fall a bit short I’m fine with it. But something tells me Teague’ll be no joke when his number gets called more often.

    Harsh, but can't really argue with it either. I think we'll be fine with a B1G-quality back as a stop-gap. Just need to get a stud in 2021 class

    No. QB's are the key to Days offense. Good RB's are a dime a dozen. There are not alot of elite QB's that can run Days system. In this system our backs are more than fine.

    The transfer portal will have backs if we need one ...we wont.

    WR's,OL,and WR's are Paramount in Days offense. RB's nowadays are a dime a dozen.
    The NFL is a pass first league and we want to go to that. Actually a back with great hands is important. That's just what we are and that's what elite teams are going to offensively.
