Just like I can guarantee that their D-Line will be getting shoved 3-4 yards off the line of scrimmage on every snap by the monstrous wooly mammoths that will comprise our O-Line. Not to mention they won't be able to touch Derrick Green until he's already at least 5 yards upfield.

See I can play that game too. But like you said, Buckeye fans are always good for a laugh or two.

In their rankings by position listings, you find the following:

For OT, Kyle Bosch at #7,  Chris Fox at #11 and Logan Tulley-Tillman at #24. 

For OG, Patrick Kugler at #6, David Dawson at #9 and Dan Samuelson at #33. 

The #1 overall rating for OL is a testament to an stellar job of recruiting by this staff.

Even better, as this article notes, getting top-tier recruits at various positions doesn't end there. As a bit of trivia, we also have the #10 and #22 ranked recruits projected at CB and #5 and #32 at DT, according to Rivals anyway. Excellent times indeed.

It's too bad that the staff decided to shut down their OL recruiting after they got 5 verbals because Ethan Pocic was extremely interested in coming here and he's more talented than the majority of our recruits.

The coaches were telling all of the OL recruits a year ago that they were taking five. If they had said they were taking six then, it's impossible to know if they would have gotten all of those early commits, Pocic included. It would be nice to know how much room you have in the class from the beginning. Then you could budget the spots perfectly. We would have tried to add a third LB, maybe snagging Reshke or S. Jones. But is that any more realistic than saying we shouldn't have wasted any time and effort recruiting Treadwell, Isaac or anyone else who turned us down?
