Tomorrow, Ohio Indiana will be in town for their Top 10 Showdowns, and while this next game is the top priority for players and employees, Buckeyes’ recruiting efforts have stolen the limelight once again.
So early in Ryan Day’s term as head of the program, he was relegating to the elite ranks like the 2021 tournament they are about to sign. While this class is the second most impressive in the country with a chance to stay on top before it ends, it is now the 2022 category that could be more impressive. The way Buckeyes is stacking these classes one by one, it’s like he’s making what could be a great run for Ohio in the near future.
There is nothing better than this
Before the internet almost collapsed last night, Buckeyes’ reception coach Brian Hartline took to his Twitter account to tweet the emoji “popcorn,” which does nothing but catch your eye. Ohio State and Committed staff have tweeted these random food emojis before, so you knew something had happened regarding the recruiting.
Coming from Coach Hartline, you would have thought the tweet was about one of his own PGA players, but seeing Marc Pantone join the fun just moments later pretty much gave the order that something big was just around the corner.
As huge as it is, the nation’s best player and highest ranked player is 247 sports in 2022 Queen Eours He declared his commitment to Ohio nearly three weeks after withdrawing from Texas. The achievement that further establishes Ryan Day’s position as the best quarterback position developer, we have to state again what this means for Buckeyes to move forward.
After landing two Elite Signal callers in 2020, they are five-star Kyle McCord In 2021, and now the best of Ewers in 2022, there is probably no better group than the quarterback in three years as there is in Ohio here. The ideal example of the rich getting richer, this kind of recruiting win is almost unheard of.
What to do is give position coach Corey Dennis the credit for where he deserves. Not even a full season under his belt as a mid-back coach, he helped Dennis achieve what most coaches hope to do once in their entire career is to be the best player on their show.
As proof of his enlistment cut, Dennis did whatever it took to help seal the Ohio State deal for the Ewers. Whether with Quinn in person or with his family, Dennis never gave up, even during a time when Texas was the choice. It’s safe to say with the help of Dennis as well as Ryan Day, Bucky’s Quarterback stain might be the strongest ever.
To get an insight into what drove Quinn to the Ohio decision, 247Sports hiring manager Steve Wiltfung put it into this in this article he published last night. In the article, it was mentioned how important the role Dennis played and why Buckeyes is considered the best fit for Ewers on and off the field.
Queen Eours and his family have a farm about 90 minutes away # Ohio State Where they like to hunt. He cannot wait to take his future #Box Mates there. More on his pledge to Ryan Day, Corey Dennis, and co here: https://t.co/BhW22gCZQr

How good are Quinn Ewers as likely? OK…
What could come next
Still deserted by the prosperity Ohio State managed to achieve with the Ewers last night, the next thing to consider is what could come in the near future thanks in large part to Quinn’s decision to be Buckeye. For starters, with Hartline’s help, Ohio is again in competition and the number one leader for the Best Recipient of the Class for 2022 just as it has been for three years in a row.
Citizen of Texas, Caleb Burton He has been linked multiple times to Ewers, and the two made it clear that they would like to play together on the same team at the next level.
Fortunately for Ohio, Burton not only has a great relationship with Ewers, producer Del Valle is also working with current Buckeye Star future Garrett Wilson when he returns to his hometown of Texas. Adding these two components to the deed he already has with Hartline, and it looks like this is already in the works to become a finished deal that can be completed very soon.
If Burton actually chose Ohio, it would give Buckeyes another year where they could go to the Lone Star State and snatch not only one of the best receivers in Texas, but also one of the best in the state. That produces talent at an incredible rate.
Make no mistake about it: Brian Hartline is clear on his approach. He’s recruiting Texas at a rate that perhaps honestly shouldn’t happen being an out-of-state coach. With the way Buckeyes is hunting for talent in Texas right now, this isn’t really something new and it’s just part of the trend. More major booms could come soon thanks to the momentum that started with the landing of the best QB in the country.
- Last night, Ohio State kept busy on the 2022 front when they sent their latest bid to a three-star defensive ending prospect, Campbell’s Jihad. The New Jersey national currently ranks as the 23rd best player in his position and the 17th best in Garden State for his class.
- Per Bill Corellic, 2022 returns four stars Damari Alston Buckeyes members are “definitely a leader” in his recruitment. Ohio has made it clear that Damary is a prime target for the 2022 category. As it stands now, Buckeyes appears to be in the driver’s seat for Alston.
