2022 tOSU Recruiting Discussion

Discussion in 'Football Recruiting' started by HotMic, Oct 24, 2019.

    “We’re gonna get more than just two or three five-stars when it’s all said and done,” Hicks said. “I'll just say that.”

    Just sayin': You gotta love recruits that help in recruiting. I say C. J. Hicks (and others) should.....GO FOR IT!!!

    timing makes sense.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Several things have me thinking about CB recruiting in the '22 class.

    First, the impending defensive staff shake up at Michigan. Two names have emerged: Derek Mason and Tim Banks (positive news being this would mean a Harbaugh extension). Things weren't looking great on the Will Johnson front for OSU in the first place (despite the recent visit, the buzz was just checking a box rather than any sort of positive momentum for OSU) and apparently Tim Banks would be a big boost for UM in that recruitment.

    Throw in the talk that Will Johnson and Domani Jackson are looking at going to the same school together, and that Domani Jackson's father is a huge UM fan and pushing him there, and things aren't looking so great on those fronts.

    Second, Wiltfong just CBed Jaheim Singletary to OSU. And there has been general positive buzz around Denver Harris.

    In summary, it looks like the OSU momentum is behind Denver Harris and Jaheim Singletary at the moment and is possibly waining with Will Johnson and possibly Domani Jackson as a side effect. Either way, the defensive staff shakeup will probably help UM in both the latter cases.

    You'd take any of these CBs any day of the week and OSU ending up with two out of those four would be amazing.

    EDIT: Domani Jackson is still CBed to Ohio State by Kurelic, Loy, and Wiltfong (but with no confidence), so I guess whatever initial positive news they heard might counterbalance the extremely pro UM parental figure. It's a long way to signing day.

    I'd take Kerry Coombs with a full off season and camp over anyone on the defensive staff at scUM and honestly the entire B1G. The same man who can turn on film and show how he shut down Tom Brady in his last game for the Patriots I'd never bet against.

    Two guys on 11W make their predictions for the 2022 recruits:


    Zack's OVERVIEW

    Overall, landing this 23-man haul would give Ohio State a composite score of 315.30 points, which would rank it as the No. 2 class in program history behind the 2018 class (317.06 points) and ahead of both the 2017 class (312.14 points) and the 2021 class (310.39 points) that still may add a piece of two.

    Oh, and it would also give the class an average player rating of 95.10, which would easily be the best in the modern recruiting era ahead of Ohio State's 2017 class and Alabama's current 2021 class (94.59 each). So perhaps that's a tad unrealistic but *shrugs shoulders*

    Andrew's OVERVIEW

    I've also got 23 names on my list right now, but I could absolutely see that number approaching 25 when all is said and done. Is there a chance Ohio State would take a second quarterback? Sure. But I think the more likely scenario will be a portal addition at some point (think more of the Gunnar Hoak type). A few more in the trenches could be the Buckeyes' way of getting to 25. You've also got that whole special teams thing to consider.

    This class would be good for a score of 318.86 and an average player rating of 95.46. That sounds a little bit crazy, but that's what can happen if and when a team is able to snag six five-star prospects (Bama's 2021 class is now up to seven, by the way). In fairness, that also includes just one three-star (Christian) and it's unlikely for any team to wind up with just one non-blue chipper.

    Entire article:

    Just sayin': They got some pretty good ones on their lists, etc.

    recruiting rankings are far from an exact science. Stay amongst the top 2-3 classes in America each year and with good coaching and player development it puts you in the NC conversation every year. Don't get me wrong, I like the shiny toys (5*'s), but avoid a ton of reaches and supplement those 5* kids with 15-20 other 4*'s and it automatically lands you a top 5 class.

    Who are we kidding? You've described OSU, Bama and Clemson.
    The next tier is UGA, LSU and Oklahoma.
    You can count on 2-3 of these teams in every CFP, and outside of the dumpster fire year of 2020 for LSU all the rest would make a NY6 in their "off year ". The CFP has created the most lopsided talent disparity in CFB history. Idk why you'd be a fan of a mid tier team or a G5 program right now. They don't have a chance at a title

    Heard Klatt talking about this exact thing this week. They really need to expand the playoffs to 16 teams to start spreading the talent. You could always allow schools that don't make the playoff to play a couple extra games to get in the same number of games/practice.

    Saw a statistic somewhere (can't remember), that showed which football teams had won a game in the CFP. Alongside was a write-up of the recruiting standings over the last four (?) years, and guess what! It matched up pretty dang well. Ergo, this is proof of what Pnuts opined.

    4 to 16 may be too much for right now. We may be lucky to get to 8. But regardless, I see OSU, Bama and Clemson there annually.
    What also should be mentioned is that those same teams win their conferences yearly as well. Except for that 2nd top ranked team in the SEC. Clemson and OSU have a literal stranglehold on their conferences and its not even remotely close. 2020 and Covid19 were the only way that either team wouldn't win their conference and it didn't happen. I dont see a Coastal ACC team or a B1G west team winning conferences anytime soon. Bama has somewhat of a competition as LSU will have special years, and UGA may have the stars align one year. But Bama also has built a talent disparity

    Yeah, with the talent gap at the top and with the current system we have, you are basically telling 95% of college football they have no chance of winning a NC before the season even starts.

    I think the 4-team CFP has ran it's course. The Bama's, Clemson's, and OSU's of the world (and even UGA, OU, and ND to some extent) will continue to pull away in the recruiting wars bc they are the only teams that are playing in the playoffs each year.

    If you make it 8, and show that a Cincy-type team will actually be considered, maybe that talent gets spread around a little to a few more contending teams. Right now, the rich keep getting richer and I like it as a Buckeye fan but don't think it's good at all for the sport I love to follow.
