    Agreed. Although he fell into a perfect new coach situation. Three 5th year seniors without ego's and speed to burn at the WR position is a perfect classroom for a coach.

    Can you imagine what's he's going to do with incoming Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams?

    Earlier this month it was announced that Brian Hartline was shedding the interim tag and was being named as Ohio State's permanent wide receivers coach. Given the success that Buckeye pass catchers had in 2018, this announcement came as no shock to the masses.

    Parris Campbell is going to top 1,000 yards receiving on the season, K.J. Hill is going to come close that same milestone, and two different Buckeye wideouts (Campbell and Terry McLaurin) have already reached double-digit touchdown receptions. All in all, it's been a heck of a season for Dwayne Haskins and his many weapons.

    The departure of Zach Smith had the potential to be a bit of a recruiting blow to the Buckeyes, but thus far Hartline has more than proved his worth on the trail. Five-star wideout Garrett Wilson pledged to Ohio State back in April, but the tumultuous times could have been problematic for the Buckeyes and their prized commitment.

    However, Hartline's efforts – combined with that of Urban Meyer and Ryan Day – were enough to keep the country's No. 2 wideout firmly in the mix. Wilson signed with Ohio State last Wednesday and is one of three five-star signees in the class; joining Lewis Center's Zach Harrison and Buford Georgia's Harry Miller.

    Four-star receiver Jameson Williams also has signed with the Buckeyes, and the St. Louis speedster forms a fine duo at the position alongside Wilson. With Campbell, McLaurin, Johnnie Dixon, and potentially Hill all on their way out, it was imperative that Ohio State bring in at least a pair of talented 2019 wideouts.

    Needless to say, it's been a fine start for Hartline. And while it's possible that the Buckeyes could add another wideout by the time February's signing day comes around, the focus is now likely on the Class of 2020. How about some more good news? It's already shaping up to be a doozy for the folks in Columbus.

    So maybe what we should really take away from the Meyer years is that coahes kept on staff for recruiting usefullness should not automatically be credited as having coaching capabilities too.

    There ain't nothing like a few cryptic Tweets to read way too far into.

    First, we have Dwayne Haskins:

    Then Hartline hit him with this in response:

    Everyone wants this to be about a Haskins return, but I ain't buying even a smidge of these Haskins return teases. I've had my hopes brought up then sent into a free fall like an amusement park drop tower too many times to buy into that.

    Until the guaranteed first-round pick formally declares himself back, I'm assuming the next snaps he takes ain't going to be for free.

    That said, either Hartline is trolling, or there's something else we don't know about.

    Just gotta say it.........can’t believe it took so long to replace Zach with this guy. It took something else happening like Zach’s domestic/legal situation to force the issue even though Urb knew Zach was a douche.

    Kinda like Brendon White. He had to flash in practice but it took injuries and the targeting ejection for him to get his shot even though the safeties opposite Fuller were stinking up the place.

    Maybe Urb was slipping just a tad. I mean, I love Urb but the nepotism with Davis, etc and seeing other guys flourish when given a chance........

    Anyway, super glad to see BH killing it.

    That misguided “loyalty” was my biggest (only?) issue with Urban. As successful as he was I can’t help but wonder how much more he would’ve done with less of that.
