Buckeyes Make Cut For Nation's No. 1 Safety Jordan Morant
Jordan Morant (6-1 195) is 247Sports' No. 1 safety in the 2020 class and the No. 43 player overall. In the Composite, he is the No. 8 safety and the No. 113 player in the nation. Morant attends Bergen Catholic High School in Oradell, New Jersey, which is the same high school that OSU redshirt freshman defensive end Javontae Jean-Baptiste attended.
The height of confidence is standing up in a hammock.
It's quite odd to me that OSU "move(d) to a hybrid safety/linebacker now." It wasn't all that many years ago that we had this same glaring problem, which came to a head when Clemson's all-everything receiver, Sammy Watkins, tore our defense to shreds in the postseason. All of a sudden, we had a "walkout LB" position. This newfangled title is a different name for the same position, and addressing the same problem. What in tarnation ever made us (apparently) abandon the concept of a walkout LB, anyway??? As a prof who teaches history, there is nothing more frustrating than seeing the same problem repeat over the course of history. For crying out loud, OSU coaches!
Douglas you made the case why it's the right call to go back to that defense. So, why do you think its "odd"?
