In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly Podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr discuss Ohio State’s football commits over the past week. They look at the loaded 2021 Ohio class as well. Listener questions are also involved, including a discussion about the most rewatchable games of the Jim Tressel era. All of this and much, much more.
+ Going over the Ben Christman commitment.
+ The 2021 class is already on fire.
+ Thanks in large part to the Great State of Ohio.

+ Could OSU sign a 5-7 guy who is 150 pounds whose name isn’t Chic Harley.
+ The commitment of Cody Simon is discussed.
+ Fast, “next-generation” linebacker that we have seen for years.
+ This is how you combat spread offenses.
+ Is this an eventual correction of last year’s linebackers on the field?
+ Is Mitchell Melton a linebacker or a rush end?
+ Is OSU moving to a hybrid on the edge now as well?
+ Darrion Henry’s commitment is discussed.
+ He’s important for a number of reasons.

+ Similar to former Cincinnati Buckeye Adolphus Washington?
+ Josh Fryar has a “big announcement” for July 4th and it better actually be big.
+ We can’t keep up.
+ This recruiting class is a testament to Ryan Day and Urban Meyer’s infrastructure.
+ There is still plenty more to come.

+ Ohio State recruiting is putting distance between the Buckeyes and everybody else in the Big Ten East.
+ Listener questions.
+ What are the most rewatchable Buckeye games of the Jim Tressel Era?
+ Would Todd Boeckman have been benched with a decent USC game?
+ What’s the best way for a college football program to get away with PED usage or pay-for-play scandals?
+ What if Ohio State had PED suspensions? Would it be news?
+ Tom takes offense!
+ It is curious what media chooses to mediate.
+ Penn State beating OSU in 2016 was a bad thing for PSU because it made people think James Franklin was a good coach.
