[Note: We decided to drop this show a day early because of the time-sensitive nature of the topics discussed.]
In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly Podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr recap Ohio State’s signing day before it even happens! They look at the guys expected to sign and not expected to sign. They also spend a good amount of time discussing Zach Harrison’s pending decision. Where is the class strong, where is it lacking? There are also listener questions and then a breaking(!) discussion about Justin Fields and Ohio State. All of this and much more.
