    In a few years I even may be normal!

    We just need to find some kind of momentum on defense. Recruiting would be a great place to start and then hopefully the season builds off of it.

    It's about time an OSU coach consistently made Cincinnati a top priority like the rest of the state. It'd be a disgrace if in 2020 OSU couldn't sign:
    Darrion Henry
    Jaheim Thomas
    Jutahn McClain
    On top of James and Johnson Jr.

    That's 5 of the top 10 kids in the state of OH, all from the same city!
    And at least kick the tires on kids like Miyan Williams, Evan Prater, Miquan Grace Deshawn Pace and DeMeer Blankumsee. OSU fans like to talk about building a fence around the state but usually like to stop that fence at Dayton. But as guys like @Honor&Glory can attest, some of the best football in the state is played down here, and has a number of kids wanting to wear the S&G if given the chance. Remain recruiting nationally, but include the ENTIRE state when recruiting OH. Meyer started that trend, and hopefully Day can improve upon with the help of coach Washington. Fickell shouldn't be able to have all of the 513 talent.

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    Methinks this 'Ahia First' attitude by Day dovetails very nicely with his ascension to being the HC at tOSU. Primarily, he doesn't have the 'pull' of UFM, who was a proven coach. Day has had a great start, but hasn't really earned his chops yet. Believe he will, given that tOSU recruiting pipeline is 'full', and not empty as it is in other places. tOSU has an enduring record/history, and are playing very nicely over the past 7 years (under UFM). Plus, UFM gave the 2020 class a marvelous start to recruiting. Day appears to be very much a hard worker, and with the behind the scenes infrastructure (Pantoni, and Coach Mick), and now the addition of very good coaching staff (but not proven in S&G - yet), the top notch kids are coming in. No pressure, but a B10 championship and a spot in the Final Four, would help cement Day's place in the juggernaut. That would provide a great bridge to an even better 2020 class, and with one 5* on board for 2021, would keep things going. Ryan Day is a smart guy, and recognizes he needs to start local and expand to national, and also seems to have built bridges to the Ahia HS coaches. Should pay dividends in the future for him and the Buckeyes. tOSU has never really 'mined' the SW Ohio region like the opportunity to do in 2020-21, so would be nice to see. Get one or two good ones every few years or so, but never like tOSU got from Cleveland or Massillon areas (Akron, etc). Looking forward to continued dominance of tOSU, and don't mind seeing Ahia born and bred players playing for national championships. I guess my Super Bowl rant. Go New Orleans Buckeyes! And of course, tOSU!

    One of the benefits of getting a big time QB(Justin Fields) is it attracts other big time kids to your program.

    Love the dude after hearing his presser. Plus the defense can't get worse, easy bet really. Like being the worlds tallest midget.

    Any class where you can land 10 out of the top 100 is absolutely incredible but admittedly very tough to do.

    tOSU already has 4 in Johnson, Wypler, Scott and Miller. That's an excellent start. So who could be the other 6? It isn't hard to find 6 realistic guys out of this list:

    Jarrett
    Fleming
    Rogers
    Corcoran
    Bresee
    Sherman
    Henry
    Smalls
    Mickens
    Davis
    Gray
    Cowan

    That's 12 dudes. Get half of them and you have your 10. Realistically, landing 8 of the top 100 is still fantastic which means when you are sitting at 4 already you are half way home and you only have to land 1/3 of the list of 12 above to hit that mark. That's certainly realistic.

    edit: What is most concerning to me is the need for an elite RB in this class and I don't see one yet unless I am missing something.
