Can anyone explain how this staff hasn't made recruiting Ohio more of a priority?
1.) OSU has gone more national recently making more OH kids available.
2.) MSU has basically gone in and built their foundation there with great success.
What makes this puzzling is that Ohio has always been a major part of our recruiting landscape and is a hotbed for talent.
It seems like it would be a no-brainer, yet we have no OH kids signed for 18 and only 3 from the previous 2 classes.
Are we sacrificing quality kids that are right in our backyard (MI&OH) and spending too much time trying to be national?
