Other Schools Salivating About Going After Buckeyes Commitments
Ohio State has the #6 recruiting class for the 2019 season.
Make that had the #6 recruiting class.
The fallout from the Urban Meyer situation goes beyond the immediate impact on the Ohio State football team. Which is significant. It will have a major impact on not just the Buckeyes but on several other teams in college football.
And that is in recruiting.
According to 24/7 Sports, Ohio State is ranked sixth in the recruiting rankings for the 2019 class. This is important because with the new early signing date in December, schools are scooping up and securing recruits in the late spring and summer. Normally at this time of the year a school may have half a dozen to about a dozen committed recruits.
Now, tho, nearly the entire new class is set. Ohio State has 15 recruits. Alabama (#2) has 20 commits, Georgia (#1) has 17 and Clemson (#5) has 22.
However, with the Meyer situation, Ohio State stands to lose several top commitments. Players are not signed until December and several schools continue to recruit the top players. Don’t think that Bama, Georgia, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and others are are not currently trying to poach several Buckeye commits.
The fallout could rumble throughout college football – not only are the Buckeyes likely to lose several top players but other schools are likely to add them to their rosters.
This is huge.
If Meyer is fired – and all signs are pointing to this happening – then Ohio State commits could fall out like pieces in the connect-the-dots game.
And other schools will be on the ground scrambling to pick up all those pieces they can to bolster their team.
