Ohio State Cancels 2nd Game of the Season Today

OhioStatevIllinois

Ohio State has found it necessary to cancel their game today against the Fighting Illini as a number of players and staff tested positive for Covid-19 including head coach Ryan Day. A number of players tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday but the team was moving forward with Thanksgiving day practices, hoping to still play. When Ryan Day also tested positive during a new round of PCR tests on Friday and Larry Johnson was named interim head coach, fans become really nervous. And later that day the Buckeyes cancelled the game.

Big Ten Championship In Question

This is the second game of the season the team (now 4-0) has not played as Maryland cancelled an earlier game. In a traditional season, this would have been Michigan game weekend and the final game of the season. After the late start, the team is playing a shortened season with two games remaining, Michigan State and Michigan. After the final game of the regular season there will be a Big 10 championship match in Indianapolis but Ohio State might not be eligible if they do not play six games in total.

Virus Affects Us All

The virus is hitting many hard with loss of jobs, loss of loved ones, illness, loss of business, and loss of regular life events like Big 10 football and championship runs. Hopefully the Buckeyes will quickly recover and be able to complete their season and support the work they have done so far with games in the league title game and national title playoffs.

No 3 Ohio State v No 9 Indiana 2020

OhioStateIndiana

Who thought at the start of the Big Ten season that Indiana at Ohio State would be one of the biggest games of the season, probably nobody. But here we are with Ohio State coming into their fourth game against an Indiana team that is 4-0 and ranked nationally. The game is scheduled for Noon on Saturday November 21st with limited attendance but fans can watch on the Fox network.

Ohio State Offense

Justin Fields has had a great start as many thought he would, going 72 for 83 (86.7%) passes leading to 908 yards with no interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He has also ran for 2 touchdowns. Helping fields is a great group of receivers including Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson. They have 632 yards and 6 touchdowns combined. At tight-end Jeremy Ruckert has 3 touchdowns already on 9 catches for 60 yards.

Master Teague III has also been solid this season rushing for 211 yards and 4 touchdowns. When the Buckeyes need to punch it in, Teague and the line have been able to do so. The Buckeye’s do not have a back as talented as JK Dobbins this year but the combo of Teague and Trey Sermon have been able to get what the team needs.

Ohio State Defense

Defensively, Ohio State needs to improve in coverage and in the pass rush. Without Chase Young they have looked to Jonathan Cooper and Zach Harrison on the end, both who have been slowing starting to show that they can dominate a game. Quarterback Michael Penix Jr will have to have a great game for Indiana to keep it close. Ohio State is favored by 20.5 points, and that could be about right with Indiana scoring three times.

Ohio State v Rutgers 2020 Preview

OhioStatevRutgers

Ohio State (2-0) plays the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (1-1) at 7:30pm on Saturday in Ohio Stadium. With limited attendance, you can watch the Buckeyes on the Big Ten Network. Rutgers was able to beat Michigan State and is considered much improved over prior seasons. Greg Schiano has brought discipline to the program and the ability to compete with more talented teams. He even was able to pull in some talent from the area in addition to grabbing a couple transfers to enhance the group.

Ohio State Offense 2020

Ohio State should get a chance to play some young players in the 2nd half including freshman quarterbacks CJ Stroud and Jack Miller III. This will not affect Justin Field’s Heisman stats as he will rack up enough passes, touchdowns and yards in the first half that he will still be first place in the race for 2020.

The running game for Ohio State should have a good game with transfer Trey Sermon scoring for the first time this season. Steele Chambers should also get a good number of carries and do well with those that he is given, similar to week 1 against Nebraska. If they get too run heavy, Rutgers has the ability to stuff some runs so OSU will need to keep the attack varied.

Ohio State #3 v Penn State #18 October 31st 2020

OhioStatePennState2020

This week’s match-up between Ohio State and Penn State will be with limited in-person attendance at Beaver Stadium. You can watch the game on ABC at 7:30pm Saturday night.

Last Week Indiana v Penn State

Indiana upset Penn State last weekend in overtime, although many feel Penn State is better than they performed in their first game of the season. Ohio State is favored by 12 points after last weeks results. Quarterback Sean Clifford led the team in rushing which is not ideal and the team was plague with errors in every aspect of the game.

Ohio State Last Week

Justin Fields was near perfect in Ohio State’s opening game against Nebraska in the Shoe (20 or 21 for 276 yards). And he ran for 55 yards on the ground, often when the team needed him the most. Ohio State struggled on the ground in week 1, hopefully they find a way to get their backs open in some gaps to complement their passing game. The four backs (Trey Sermon, Master Teague, Steele Chambers and Xavier Johnson) combined with Fields did add up to some decent yards, but there was not a dominate back.

Receiving was led by Garrett Wilson (129 yards and a touchdown) and Chris Olave (104 yards). With Julian Fleming, Jameson Williams, Jeremy Ruckert, Jaxson Smith-Njigba, and Luke Farrell also getting catches. Olave might miss this coming game with an injury.

Justin Fields

Fields needs to show his skills against good competition in the short season if he wants to be considered for the Heisman trophy. This nationally televised game is the perfect opportunity.

Going against Fields is Shaka Toney on the defensive line of Penn State. The Nittany Lions hope Toney can disrupt the Buckeye quarterback enough to keep them in the game.

Ohio State v Nebraska 2020 Preview

OhioStateNebraska2020

This Saturday, October 24th, the Big Ten Conference will finally let Ohio State play a football game for the 2020 season. At 12pm in Ohio Stadium (The Horseshoe) with no fans present, the Buckeyes will welcome the Nebraska Cornhuskers for a match-up that looks to be one-sided. Ohio State has the clear advantage with personnel and won last year’s game 48-7 with Justin Fields throwing 3 touchdowns and JK Dobbins running for 177 yards.

COVID 19

There will be no band and the attendance is limited to the low 1000s. FOX will add crowd noise to the broadcast. Those favored to win this season haven’t always come out on top with the weird differences in each teams ability to train and get ready for games because of Covid 19.

A look at Ohio State 2020

There has been some talk about Ohio State not having great experience at corner back and not having the preseason games to prepare their new starters. Justin Fields is the difference maker, athletic and a really good passer, with an offensive line that has a number of returning starters and a great group of receivers. Plus Ryan Day is good at getting his team ready for every game and has not given up a game like Urban Meyer sometimes did.

Nebraska 2020

Nebraska players to watch include quarterback Adrian Martinez. A dual threat quarterback that could give a young inexperienced defense trouble. The team’s up-tempo play calling could also be tricky as the Buckeyes try to find their way, the first time on the field this season. A 5-7 team in 2019, the are expected to lose by 26 points on Saturday.

Ohio State Football Schedule 2020

OhioStateFootballSchedule2020

When the Big 10 released their 2020 football schedule for the last time in the middle of September, Ohio State came out in a pretty good position. Nebraska on the other hand got a very difficult schedule. Some feel Nebraska’s tough schedule was punishment for the university openly being upset with the Big 10 over cancelling their Fall football season. They travel to Ohio State, play Wisconsin at home, travel to Northwestern and then have Penn State at home, not the easiest way to start a season. Ohio State is considered the favorite in the conference with the coaching staff and depth on their roster. Every team plays everyone in their division and then 2 games outside of their division.

Ohio State vs Nebraska October 24th 12:00pm on FOX

Ohio State at Penn State October 31st

Should be a huge matchup on Halloween with Penn State looking like the 2nd best team in the conference. Whoever wins will be on their way to a conference championship.

Ohio State vs Rutgers November 7th

Some have speculated that this game will not happen with New York and New Jersey having more Covid 19 lockdowns that other parts of the country.

Ohio State at Maryland November 14th

Ohio State vs Indiana November 12st

No road game to Indiana this year as the Hoosiers come to Columbus. Fans will be disappointed since they usually travel and sell out the stadium, turning it into the Horseshoe.

Ohio State at Illinois November 28th

Ohio State at Michigan State December 5th

Two road games in a row isn’t great and Michigan State at times has given the Buckeyes trouble.

Michigan at Ohio State December 12th on FOX

The big rivalry happening at the end of the season will draw lots of attention nationwide. Hopefully games are not postponed during the schedule causing issues for this big event. No break between the final game and the Big Ten Championship Game.

He was recruited for Ohio State by Kerry Coombs and Corey Dennis. Arizona, Auburn, Arizona State, and Colorado were also pursuing his college commitment. Ohio State was the odd Big Ten school in a list of Pac-12 programs but pulled out the win.

Burke is a 4.7 40 yard runner with a great wing span who could add some build at the next level.

He had 313 yards on 12 receptions last year in addition to 2 picks after sitting out half the season due to a school transfer.

C.J. Hicks, the College Football Recruit to Look Out For

CJHicks

Who is C.J. Hicks?

C.J. Hicks is a high school senior football recruit from Archbishop Alter High in Dayton Ohio. Weighing in at 190 lbs., this 6 foot 4 inch young man caught the attention of colleges across the country with many recruiters trying to get him to commit. His skills include playing defense and offensive positions and excelling in all of them.

Hick’s talents have made him so widely known that he had received 28 scholarship offers from around the country before making his decision. These offers included Penn State, Notre Dame, Iowa, Cincinnati, Virginia, West Virginia, Purdue, Tennessee, Ohio State and many more. The choice was extremely difficult for him with the different scholarship packages and perks he was offered to attend some of these schools.

Which Colleges has CJ Hicks Visited?

In an interview, he mentioned visiting Purdue, Cincinnati, Vanderbilt, and Ohio State for games in previous years, and had had great times at all of them. Alabama did invite him this year, however had prior engagements and was not able to attend that event. He mentioned enjoying Cincinnati, Purdue and Columbus Ohio for reasons such as their atmosphere, great football seasons, nice friendly people, and amazing crowds.

C.J. Hicks Commitment Choice

C.J. Hicks has ultimately decided to attend Ohio State University, and was recruited by Al Washington and Kevin Wilson. He stated he chose the OSU Buckeyes because of the incredible culture there. He also believes that going to Ohio State will help him to become the man he wants to become along with aiding his football career. He admitted the choice was hard, but after a discussion with his mother he knew what he wanted. He is already trying to recruit for the Buckeyes with friends, and other players he believes are a good fit.

With his long and lean body, this player is able to take long strides allowing him to cover more ground faster. Hick’s has had experience as a safety and sometimes as a cornerback, along with other defense positions. In high school he was even utilized as an offensive player, making him more versatile in how he played. College being the different ballgame it is, he will most likely have to bulk up to increase his strength, endurance and stamina. If you watched this past season you can see he is almost where he needs to be to be considered college football ready.

What does he offer Ohio State University?

With his experience in various positions on the field, he offers the Buckeyes a recruit who will be effective just about anywhere they place him. This can be a rare trait, most athletes excelling in offense or defense. His physique allows him to be fast and yet take a hit when needed, which is essential when playing this sport. He is also very determined to be the best, and his competitive nature helps ensure his dedication and motivation to achieving his football goals.

Ohio State CB Jyaire Brown from New Orleans

JyaireBrown

Ohio State got their first 2022 commit on Wednesday from New Orleans Warren Easton High School cornerback prospect Jyaire Brown. “Hollywood” Brown made the announcement on Twitter. The 6’1” 170lbs 2022 recruit is considered a 4 star prospect, the 16th best cornerback and the 122 best overall player in the country.

Many programs are just getting their 2021 classes started, but Ohio State has a class that is getting full and easily ranked the best in the country. Now they are beginning to look at the next class, making offers, and talking to recruits.

Jyaire Brown to LSU

Many thought he was headed to LSU including Billy Embody who had a crystal ball predication of 62% likely to stay in the South at Louisiana State. He also had offers from Florida State, Arkansas, Colorado, and Alabama. A total of 19 scholarship offers in all.

Brown’s family wanted him to wait a little before deciding but he went with his gut and pulled the trigger on the Buckeyes now.

Brown was born in Cincinnati and wanted to find his way back to the area with his college selection. His family is still a bunch of Buckeye fans and consider the school DBU.

Kerry Coombs was his recruiter at Ohio State and discussed coming back home with Brown. Warren Easton coordinator Munchie LeGaux knew Coombs from when he was a quarterback for the University of Cincinnati and Coombs was on the staff.

This is the first recruit for the Buckeyes in the area in over 15 years. Recruiting a sophomore early can be tricky but the staff must have liked what they see at this point.

What Jyaire Brown Offers Ohio State

Brown is a true cornerback with length that will be able to play press for OSU. His speed also makes him able to play zone when needed. And his physical play is something Ohio State wants in cornerbacks coming in to make tackles.

Coombs feels that Brown will fit well with the culture of the team. The Buckeyes offered Brown a scholarship 5 days prior to him committing. No visits have been made as the current pandemic has made that impossible.

Brown played the entire season as a starter on a state title competing team. He also plays basketball and runs track at Warren Easton. Some have compared Brown to Marshon Lattimore, an Ohio State graduate now playing for the New Orleans Saints.

Bucknell Guard Jimmy Sotos Transfers

JimmySotos

Ohio State landed Bucknell guard transfer Jimmy Sotos this past week to help their depleted numbers after a number of Buckeye players entered the NCAA transfer portal. Ohio State lost Luther Muhammad, DJ Carton, and Alonzo Gaffney to transfers prior to Sotos selecting them. Sotos had the opportunity to play at Minnesota, Gonzaga, Butler, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Ohio State or Missouri in 2021. He will redshirt his first season in Columbus and will hit the hardwood as starting point guard CJ Walker graduates.

What Jimmy Sotos Offers

Sotos is a tall 6’3” point guard coming out of Illinois, Conant High School. He was born in Elk Grove Village Illinois. He is what Ohio State has looked for in guards the last couple of seasons, a seasoned veteran that will sit a year and then come in as a starter.

Sotos started 77 games at Bucknell in his three years with the Bisons. He averaged 8 points a game with 3.9 assist and 3.4 boards. He was 37.1% from behind the arc his third year in college.

Why Ohio State?

Sotos got along well with Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann and Ryan Pedon. Bucknell fans were a little surprised with the news of his transfer, but he feels this is the next step in his college career. He was only in the transfer portal for 3 days when his transfer to OSU was announced on his twitter account. Sotos felt that he could compete at a high level after having good games against Syracuse, Ohio State, TCU, Penn State, and North Carolina while at Bucknell.

With in-person visits banned during the COVID 19 pandemic, Sotos had to make a transfer decision without a visit. He relied on Zoom meetings and online research to determine the best location for his next two years.

Five Star Running Back TreVeyon Henderson from Hopewell Virginia

TreVeyonHenderson

Hopewell Virginia running back TreVeyon Henderson committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes tonight over offers from Oklahoma, Georgia, Penn State, Michigan and others. A 5’11” 195 lbs. prospect, Ryan Day has a great piece of his 2021 class settled tonight.

Considered the top player in the country by many, his motivation comes from his desire to help his hard working mother.

Running Back TreVeyon Henderson

Henderson was great on the field last year, winning a state championship with 2,424 yards and 45 touchdowns, as well as in the classroom, earning a 4.0 grade point average. He averaged 12.2 yards/carry during his junior season.

Henderson is the current Gatorade Player of the Year in Virginia. He went from being a defensive back prospect as a sophomore to a 20 lbs. heavier running back with better speed as a junior.

He is able to change direction quickly and increase speed while breaking away from entire backfields.

TreVeyon Henderson Visits

Henderson was unable to visit Ohio State as he had planned in April due to the world-wide pandemic (the NCAA on-campus and off-campus visit suspension), but felt great about the coaches and the program at OSU. He mentions running backs coach Tony Alford as a reason that he feels very comfortable with the team today. Expectations were for Henderson to take his time with recruiting, but all that changed with the visit restrictions. Al Washington and Ryan Day were also pivotal in Henderson’s recruitment.

Many are comparing Henderson to JK Dobbins, who also never visited Ohio State before committing. He grew up watching Ezekiel Elliott and the Buckeyes during their great 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Evan Pryor Joins OH State Buckeyes

EvanPryor

Written By Connor Patterson

Evan Pryor Commits

Ohio State added running back Evan Pryor to its 2021 class.  Pryor knew what he was entering when he joined in and knew all the stars.He choose Ohio State over Georgia and North Carolina.When Pryor enters he will be with the running backs Master Teague III, Marcus Crowley and Steele Chambers.  Due to the Buckeyes recruits they will be ahead of the competition.

The Effects Of Evan Pryor

3 commitments in the month of March for the Ohio State Buckeyes.  Pryor is the 124 overall prospect in nation. Because of Pryor, Ohio State has the most ESPN Junior 300 commitments in all FBS programs. Which is more than Florida, Clemson, Oregon, Notre Dame, and North Carolina. Pryor is a 5-foot-11, 190-pound back from from Hough High School in Cornelius, North Carolina.

Some Struggles for Ohio State

Pryor has became the 13th commitment to the Ohio State roster already locked and loaded for the 2021 roster and is the first RB to join the group.  The buckeyes entered the cycle of recruit after missing the previous class and desperatly needed some top tier running backs that is where they got Evan Pryor.  They are still on some good guys that are the No.2 and No. 3 which is TreVeyon Henderson and Donovan Edwards.

Some Issues With Evan Pryor

One big problem with Pryor is his blocking ability.  Because Pryor is so used to using his passing ability and usually in the pocket and getting better leverage.  In the film of him he is using his upper body to block which is not going to help him against the big ten line backers. He will need to work on his lower body strength and using a block only using lower body strength.

 Evan Pryor Highlights 2021 4 Star Running Back OSU Commit

His Relationship With The Other OSU Players

Ohio State was unexpected for his choice because his sister went to Penn State.  But he thought that it felt like a family and he loved the people.  Due to the voice chat he became friends with his future teammates and he thought they were great.  In a few days he is going to actually come to Columbus.  He has already met the team in Columbus and just like the voice chat he felt like a family.  He is very exited to come to OSU and wants to find out about his new home.
