In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr start the show by talking about where the Buckeyes turn now that 2019 quarterback Grant Gunnell has committed to Arizona. Will they go all in on a couple of top targets before turning back toward an in-state prospect possibly willing to bide his time? The commitment of blue-chip center Harry Miller is also discussed. The talk then turns to Jim Harbaugh’s statement that some of his scholarship players are being passed by walk-ons. The show then closes with listener questions. All of that and plenty more.
