In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr recap the goings-on at Friday Night Lights and the storm of news that came out of it. The Buckeyes have their 2019 quarterback — are they on the verge of landing their 2020 quarterback as well? What were the recruits saying after Friday Night Lights? The 2020 class is also discussed, and for very good reason. Ohio State’s penchant for flipping quarterback commits was talked about as well. All of this and much, much more.
