    The need for a few quality tackles in the class probably gets a bit bigger after today.

    but I've been told there is no problem with offensive line recruiting?

    Well...one could also look at it like Max is transferring because the OL room is loaded, right?

    Yes but the soon to be fully in our lap OT depth issue is highlighted even more as is every swing and miss on a tackle prospect.

    Agreed...can’t fully rely on “projects” becoming the next Mumford or Dawand Jones.

    And right now, after NPF and Munford, we have nothing but projects...

    Is Paris Johnson considered a project?

    I certainly wouldn't consider him that. I'd say after NPF and Munford leave you have Paris Johnson at one tackle, Dewand Jones (I guess we have no choice that he's ready) then;

    2019 class: Jacoby
    2020 class: Toutant, Leroux
    2021 class: Michalski

    That's 4 live OT bodies plus anyone they recruit for 2022. Everyone of those guys was, I believe, a lower rated player than the OT(s) they swung and missed on in that year.

    I don't get how anyone looks at that and feels overly comfortable.

    No. But name me the rest of the backups since you named the outlier.
    And then let me know how confident you feel in anyone not named Paris Johnson Jr at OT

    Need to protect your QB and open holes for the backs. If you can’t get the OTs to do that then it just goes downhill from there.

    Maybe go read your comment again. If you knew there was an “outlier” you shouldn’t have said there’s nothing but projects after Munford and NPF.

    With that said...I’m not a huge fan of Stud. But 5 of the top 9 Offensive Linemen that Ohio State has ever landed has been during his time at Ohio State.

    NPF
    Paris Johnson
    Donovan Jackson
    Wyatt Davis
    Harry Miller

    I’d say landing 5 of the school’s 9 five star OL all time (in the recruiting ranking era) is pretty darn good.

    No one can question his performance on the interior OL recruiting. likewise with his lack of performance at the OT position.

    Both things can be true at the same time.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Yeah but that’s the point. You seem to believe Stud is dropping the ball somewhat in recruiting and yet he is landing elite guys, just on the interior as it so happens. Further, I’d say it is one recruit specifically that is even causing all this and it’s losing our guy penciled in last year to Bama. We land Latham last year and we aren’t even having this debate. Even if Goodwin was still gonna slip away. We would all be like.....eh, no biggee.
