  Ohio State v Florida Atlantic
Posted by: Steve - 08-29-2019, 09:32 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-93818792c773_C865-LaneKiffin_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="LaneKiffin" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="LaneKiffin" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-93818792c773_C865-LaneKiffin_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Ohio State kicks off their 2019 season this Saturday at noon in the Horseshoe against the mighty <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Atlantic_Owls" target="_blank">Owls of Florida Atlantic</a> (Boca Raton). Catch the game of FOX for this first ever meeting. Fans should be pretty excited to see <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2960/Ryan-Days-2019-Ohio-State-Football-Staff" target="_blank">Ryan Day</a> take over the program with the dynamic <a href="https://twitter.com/justnfields" target="_blank">Justin Fields</a> at quarterback. The Buckeye offense has reloaded with plenty of talent at all the skill positions and the defense has a new set of coaches to guide them to a dominating performance.</p>
<h2>Florida Atlantic Owls</h2><p>Ranked fifth in the country, the Ohio State opener should not be close when the fourth quarter comes along. But <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lane_Kiffin" target="_blank">Lane Kiffin</a> (former Tennessee and Southern Cal coach) and the Owls are hoping for a very different outcome. Last season Florida Atlantic finished 5 and 7 but were able to score prolifically reaching an average of 31 points a game. The first test for the new Silver Bullet defense has arrived. The Owls can move the ball but allow their opponents to score at the same time. Florida Atlantic changed out their defensive coaches also, so we'll get to see if there is any improvement.</p>
<h2>Harrison Bryant</h2><p>Florida Atlantic has a star tight end in <a href="https://fausports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5756" target="_blank">Harrison Bryant</a>, who some feel is the second best TE in the college game. They also have a number of transfers that can compete with Ohio State recruits. Included in this group are NT Noah Jefferson, RB BJ Emmons, and <a href="https://fanbuzz.com/college-football/lane-kiffin-chris-robinson-transfer-florida-atlantic-oklahoma/" target="_blank">QB Chris Robinson</a>. </p>
<h2>Justin Fields</h2><p>Quarterback Justin Fields has some big shoes to fill and has not been at Ohio State very long. Dwayne Haskins has moved on to the NFL leaving the transfer to run the show. Fields will be watched closely by everyone and hopefully his skill level and understanding of the offense will make up for any lack of time in the program.</p>
<h2>Chase Young</h2><p><a href="https://ohiostate.escoutroom.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2973/another-crop-of-buckeyes-looking-to-conquer-the-nfl" target="_blank">Chase Young</a> on the edge will be fun to watch early on Saturday. Young was able to get over 15 tackles for loss last year along with 10 sacks. He hopes to continue that great performance on his way to an early NFL draft day next Spring.</p>
<h2>Ryan Day</h2><p>Ryan Day demonstrated in his three starts last year that he has what it takes to win the preseason games. The Buckeyes could lean on <a href="https://www.efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2746/All-Purpose-Back-JK-Dobbins-And-Buckeye-Football" target="_blank">running back JK Dobbins</a> to get started before opening up the offense. Justin Fields will have his moments in the game and the pass rush for Ohio State should cause havoc on the Owls all game long. Ohio State is favored by 27.5 points.</p>

Kentucky is also a favorite. He is considered the 5th best all-purpose running back for 2020. Ohio State currently has one 2020 commit for the backfield. Last season for Dublin Coffman he got 927 all purpose yards with 14 touchdowns.</p> <h2>FSU Visit</h2> <p>The 5'11" 195 lbs. running back from Dublin Ohio visited Florida State last week in a little bit of a surprise.

  Four-Star CB Clark Phillips III Headed to OSU in 2020
Posted by: Steve - 07-17-2019, 08:29 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-7a7f8b4d30ae_C390-ClarkPhillipsIII_2.jpg"><img width="244" height="139" title="ClarkPhillipsIII" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="ClarkPhillipsIII" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-7a7f8b4d30ae_C390-ClarkPhillipsIII_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p> <p>Highly recruited four-star cornerback <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Clark-Phillips-III-46038933/" target="_blank">Clark Phillips III</a> has committed to Ohio State University's football team in 2020, and will bring even more depth to an excellent recruiting class. Phillips attends <a href="https://www.fjuhsd.org/Domain/10" target="_blank">La Habra High School in California</a>, and he also lines up at wide receiver on his high school team. His excellent technique and ball skills will be an asset to a 2020 OSU recruiting class that looks stacked in the secondary.</p> <h2>Who did Phillips Consider?</h2><p>Phillips was recruited by OSU Co-Defensive Coordinator and Secondary <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Hafley" target="_blank">Coach Jeff Hafley</a>. Cal and OSU were the front-runners from the beginning, but Notre Dame and USC were also in consideration. He was offered by numerous Power Five programs, but Phillips only visited Cal and USC. In the end, the chance to play for former 49ers Secondary Coach Jeff Hafley at OSU was too good of an opportunity for Phillips to pass up. He committed to OSU shortly after his June visit to Columbus.</p> <h2>Ohio State 2020 Class</h2><p>The 2020 secondary class for Ohio State is shaping up to be a strong one, with Clark Phillips III at CB, and four-star safeties <a href="https://www.landgrantholyland.com/2019/7/16/18714726/ohio-state-recruiting-lathan-ransom-commit" target="_blank">Lathan Ransom</a> and <a href="https://www.escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2971/Why-Lejond-Cavazos-Re-Committed-to-Ohio-State" target="_blank">Lejond Cavazos</a> patrolling the field and providing protection for Phillips. Ransom and Phillips even took their official visit on the same day, and this played a part in them both selecting the Buckeyes shortly thereafter. With luck, this off-field friendship will translate to on-field performance for these two highly touted members of the 2020 freshman secondary.</p> <h2>What Does Phillips Bring to OSU?</h2><p>Phillips is best known as island defender who can lock down his receiver in man-to-man coverage, and should help the Ohio State defense despite numerous changes to their defensive coaching staff. Phillips will bring an elite athleticism to the position, and his quickness and explosiveness allows him to play in the slot when needed, or as the nickel cornerback when the situation calls for it. Despite playing WR in high school, he isn't expected to see any time on the offensive side of the ball at the next level.</p> <p>Phillips III has average size at 5'10" and 178 pounds, and solid but unspectacular straight line speed, with a 4.54 time in the 40. However, he possesses excellent technique and physicality, and an unbreakable competitive spirit. His time catching passes has helped him develop excellent ball skills and solid hands, which gives him an edge on 50-50 balls and will allow him to make some interceptions that less sure-handed CB's wouldn't be able to come up with.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Getting to know Cameron Martinez
Posted by: Steve - 07-11-2019, 02:32 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Getting-to-know-Cameron-Martinez_D532-CAMERONMARTINEZ_2.jpg"><img width="244" height="139" title="CAMERONMARTINEZ" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="CAMERONMARTINEZ" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Getting-to-know-Cameron-Martinez_D532-CAMERONMARTINEZ_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p> <p>Cameron Martinez is one heck of a prize for the Buckeyes. A Player who can excel at multiple positions. But there is a lot left unanswered about this newest 4-Star recruit to call Ohio State home. So let's breakdown why he choose OSU and more importantly where he might play.</p> <h2>CAMERON MARTINEZ HAD HIS LIST OF SUITORS.</h2><p><br> 29 scholarship offers in fact. </p> <p>Including</p> <p>- Notre Dame<br> - Boston College<br>- Florida State<br>- Syracuse<br>- Penn State<br>- Michigan State<br>And, oh yeah, MICHIGAN.</p> <p>He also visited Northwestern, Minnesota, Iowa State, Kentucky and the aforementioned Penn State. <br></p> <h2>HE GREW UP A MICHIGAN FAN AND HAD DREAMS OF DONNING BLUE</h2> <p><br> "I think it was definitely hard, being in state, being from Michigan. Michigan and Michigan State were always schools I thought about playing for and dreamed of playing for growing up-- So it's definitely hard, but just the way the process was going. But thinking about it, it was definitely a sacrifice not playing in state and going out of state to a program that is going to be playing those teams."</p> <h2>BUT HE WANTED TO BE A BUCKEYE.</h2> <p>Though Ohio State was one of the last teams to offer him a scholarship, it's what OSU offers beyond the field of play that lured Martinez to become a Buckeye. "I think a lot of it was life after football It's what a lot of people don't know." Martinez recently said. "That coaching staff really puts you in position to be successful not just on the field but of the field." It seems Cameron Martinez is looking to join the "O" Hall of Fame. </p> <h2>WHAT POSITION WILL HE PLAY?</h2><p><br> Though very successful as a QB in High School, rushing for 1500 yards and 24 TD's on a 140 carries and throwing for 481 yards and 9 more touchdowns, he will probably play on the other side of the ball at Safety. But that won't stop OSU at lining him up at WR, HB, RB and CB where he had success in the past. The Buckeyes coaching staff must feel like a kid in a candy store.</p> <h2>THERE HAS BEEN CONFLICTING REPORTS ON HIS HEIGHT AND SIZE</h2> <p>Some scouts had him listed at 5-11 and 185 while others had him at 5-10 and 174. He has also been listed at 6-0 and 195. There is a big difference between being 5-10 and 174 compared to 6-0 and 195. Whatever his true size will surely dictate where he plays on the field. </p><div class="feedflare">

  DE Ty Hamilton is Versatile with a High Motor

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-e32300835ea4_ECA0-TyHamilton_2.png"><img width="167" height="244" title="TyHamilton" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="TyHamilton" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-e32300835ea4_ECA0-TyHamilton_thumb.png" border="0"></a></p><p>Pickerington Central prospect <a href="https://twitter.com/tfhamilton02?lang=en" target="_blank">Ty Hamilton</a> verbally committed to play football at Ohio State in 2020 after a visit to Columbus this past weekend. He comes to OSU with the versatility to play an end or a tackle on the defensive line. </p> <h3>Davon Hamilton</h3> <p>His brother, <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/DaVon-Hamilton-43887/" target="_blank">Davon</a>, is a senior for the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2019. He was a three-star d-line prospect and has added about 35 pounds since leaving the Pickerington Tigers and coming to OSU. The older Hamilton was a part of the tackle rotation in 2018, starting games in place of Robert Landers when he was injured. He racked up 16 tackles, with 3 and a half for loss. He is slated to start this year on early roster projections.</p> <p>Other pairs of brothers to come through Ohio State include the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Bosa" target="_blank">Bosas</a>, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zach_Boren" target="_blank">Borens</a> and the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malik_Hooker" target="_blank">Hookers</a>.</p> <h3>Ohio State 2020 Class</h3> <p>The Pickerington Central defensive lineman is the 12th player in the 2020 Buckeye class and 5th from Ohio. The class is loaded with offensive talent at this time and ranked 7th nationally based on those players.</p> <h3>Ty Hamilton Rankings</h3> <p>The 6'3", 250 lbs. high school senior is a 3-star recruit according to national rankings and the 26th best player in Ohio. He plays defensive end at Pickerington Central and will most likely move inside like his brother at OSU. </p> <p>He will come in as a project for <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/coach/larry-johnson/" target="_blank">Larry Johnson</a> but plays at full effort every down.

  Michigan Offensive Lineman Grant Toutant flips to the Buckeyes

Dissimilar to five-star receiver <a href="https://twitter.com/julian_040" target="_blank">Julian Fleming</a>, four-star tackle <a href="https://247sports.com/player/grant-toutant-46056839/" target="_blank">Grant Toutant</a> had given his pledge to the Nittany Lions, just to shockingly flip to the Buckeyes Sunday night. A long-term Penn State commit Toutant stunned the world, posting on Twitter that he was decommitting from the Lions, and going to Columbus. </p> <h3>Grant Toutant </h3> <p>Toutant was verbally dedicated to Penn State since November a year ago. </p> <p>The 6'7", 320lbs lineman from Michigan has seen his rankings rise and now is a top 25 tackle and one of 300 players ranked highest in the country. Toutant focused on Penn State yet was offered by both MSU and OSU in January. His footwork, following quite some time of playing b-ball, will enable him to exploit a major sized frame. </p> <p>While <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/coach/greg-studrawa/" target="_blank">Coach Studrawa</a> is the o-line coach, previous <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Mattison" target="_blank">Michigan coach Greg Mattison</a> is the one credited for his enlistment, which means those <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2960/Ryan-Days-2019-Ohio-State-Football-Staff" target="_blank">new Michigan staff members</a> are beginning to win players for the Buckeyes. </p> <p>With a genuine o-tackle body, Toutant can play inside, yet is fit on the edge and that is the place Ohio State intends to put him. </p><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Buckeyes Schedule for 2019

Included in the list was the contest at Michigan on November 30th, which will start at 12:00 PM ET, and will be on FOX.</p> <p>Other game times that were released include: August 31st Florida Atlantic Noon on FOX, September 7th Cincinnati 12:00PM on ABC, September 14th Indiana away Noon on FOX, October 5th Michigan State 7:30 PM on ABC/ESPN and October 18th Northwestern 8:30 PM on FS1.</p> <p>The Buckeyes cannot make any mistakes this year if they want to make it to the playoffs. Other major teams in the CFP have easy paths while OSU has to finish out strong. One loss on the season makes it difficult to get an invitation but Ohio State could possibly be an exception. Its always better to not have a blemish when teams are selected. They need to win the last three games of their year convincingly.</p> <p>The non-conference schedule for the Buckeyes does not present a challenge this year. <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2796/Luke-Fickell-Is-the-New-Head-Coach-for-Cincinnati" target="_blank">Luke Fickell</a> and Cincinnati will be interesting but an easy win for Ohio State.</p> <p>Penn State and Michigan await them at the end of their schedule. Win those match-ups plus the <a href="https://bigten.org/index.aspx?path=football" target="_blank">Big10 Championship</a> (against Wisconsin, maybe Nebraska) and they will get their spot in the final four. Michigan and OSU are the favorites to win the Big Ten title in 2019.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Best Receiver in the Country Julian Fleming Commits to Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 06-04-2019, 07:39 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-21a2eaecacd9_E606-JulianFleming_4.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="JulianFleming" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="JulianFleming" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-21a2eaecacd9_E606-JulianFleming_thumb_1.jpg" border="0"></a></p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/julian_040" target="_blank">Julian Fleming</a>, the No. 1 receiver in the nation, and the No. 6 generally speaking prospect, reported his promise to Ohio State on Friday morning. </p> <p>Fleming turns out to be only the fourth five-star wide wideout to join Ohio State since 2000, joining <a href="https://twitter.com/tedginnjr_19" target="_blank">Ted Ginn Jr</a>, <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jalin_Marshall" target="_blank">Jalin Marshall</a>, and 2019 recruit <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/roster/garrett-wilson/" target="_blank">Garrett Wilson</a>. </p> <p>A visit to Columbus the few days around March 22 was the one event that put the Buckeyes up for good in this blue-chip fight. Clemson was in the drivers seat preceding that outing and Penn State was viewed as the one to beat from the get-go all the while. He reported his pledge to the Buckeyes on Friday morning in a very emotional video, where he stated, "Ohio State is home." </p> <p>His enrollment has been a battle, and for a long while many trusted that he would add to Clemson's great class. To such an extent that Fleming was enlisted by the current Clemson recruits and needed to break the news to his friends that he wouldn't go along with them at school. </p> <p>Practically identical to previous Buckeye <a href="https://www.facebook.com/Michael31Thomas/" target="_blank">Michael Thomas</a>, Julian Fleming effectively isolates. Quickness and physicality make him world class after a catch, plus his ball abilities are remarkable. </p> <p>The 6-foot-2, 199-pound Fleming is a fabulous mix of size, quality and jumping capacity. Fleming flaunts a 4.63 40-yard dash, 37.4-inch vertical hop and a 23-foot long-jump. </p> <p>The Catawissa (Pa.) Southern Columbia five-star player unequivocally considered Clemson, Penn State, Georgia and Alabama among others. </p> <p>Fleming is a prospect who could come in and play immediately, yet in spite of the fact that he is trusting that is the result, he is eager to hang tight and work for a chance. </p><div class="feedflare">

  Buckeyes Snap Up Kyle McCord

McCord, who is finishing up his sophomore year in Philadelphia, Pa at St Joseph's, has verbally committed to the Buckeyes for 2021. Ohio State's <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2956/Mike-Yurcich-Joins-Ohio-State-Offense" target="_blank">quarterback coach Mike Yurcich</a> has been recruiting him along with 15 other colleges that have given him offers. Kyle who received his first scholarship offer in the summer before his high school career began has been a strong and successful player on the field. His career thus far has been quite impressive and the accolades are expected to grow over his next two years of high school. During his first season as a varsity starter, he threw 38 touchdowns, completed more than two-thirds of his passes and set the school record with 2,883 passing yards. He holds a Penn State Class 6a title and will have an opportunity for two more before Ohio State even has the opportunity to have him in the locker room as a Buckeye. </p><p><strong>Why McCord Liked Ohio State</strong></p><div class="feedflare">
