The Ohio State team lost the tallest player they’ve ever had in the show’s history when Quinn Ewers decided to step into the transfer window. Apparently, this caught Ryan Day off guard. How it caught the show’s head coach off guard was beyond me.
Despite that, Ewers is gone and is likely going to be somewhere in Texas. He’s already befriended a number of 2022 rookies committed to Ohio State, including the four-star recipient from Texas Caleb Burton. Buckeyes also in danger of losing him?
Burton seems firmly committed to the Ohio State football program right now. He seems more interested in winning games and being coached by Brian Hartline than watching Ewers. Even when Ohio State had lost him, the wide studio was stacked without him.
Another recruitment to watch in class is the hidden corner Terrance Brooks, also from Texas. The 4-star player is also quite close to Ewers. Again, he seems pretty locked into the show. The Buckeyes shouldn’t lose him either, though there’s still time.
The problem with this scenario is that there’s still time for all of these rookies to go with Ewers if they want to. The early signing period is still very early, but these kids may decide to wait until February to decide. That will make the Buckeyes sweat.
If I had to guess, I would say that the people who are hired to commit right now will continue to commit. Ohio State won’t lose anyone from this recruiting class due to Ewers’ departure. If these rookies want to win and want to get into the NFL, then Ohio State is the place for you.
Ryan Day has have it raw recently. Hopefully he can get his team to focus on the Rose Bowl and have a successful end to 2021.
