  Marcus Hooker Suspended After Second OVI Citation
Posted by: Steve - 03-20-2021, 06:29 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Marcus-Hooker-Suspended-After-Second-OVI_9B91-MarcusHooker_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="475" title="MarcusHooker" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="MarcusHooker" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Marcus-Hooker-Suspended-After-Second-OVI_9B91-MarcusHooker_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Ohio State <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2844/marcus-hooker-is-coming-to-ohio-state" target="_blank">safety Marcus Hooker</a> has been suspended by the Ohio State football program from the Buckeyes after he was cited for an OVI (Operating a Vehicle Impaired) early Saturday morning. This is Marcus Hooker's second off-the-field violation after an earlier OVI incident.</p>
<h2>Marcus Hooker OVI</h2><p>He was cited by the Columbus Police Department early Saturday morning, which is his second off-field incident. He signed with the Buckeyes some three years ago. A spokesperson for Ohio State confirmed that Hooker had been suspended indefinitely by the team and went on to say that no decision or timetable has been decided, or will be announced, about his return to the team.</p>
<p>Hooker was released and will be <a href="https://lettermenrow.com/ohio-state-football/ohio-state-buckeyes-football-marcus-hooker-arrest-ovi-charge-police-report/" target="_blank">arraigned in Franklin County</a> by the Prosecutors office on Friday, which marks the day that the his team mates are due to begin their spring practice. The police report states that Hooker refused a breathalyzer test after being pulled over and will be arraigned on a misdemeanor charge on Friday. This most recent Marcus Hooker OVI is his second. The fourth-year safety was also arrested in 2018 and charged with a DUI offence in Pennsylvania, his home state, before he began his Ohio State career. At that time he was also charged with careless driving, no rear lights and the purchase of alcohol by a minor. He was suspended by the Buckeyes for the season-opener at the time.</p>
<h2>Marcus Hooker Bio</h2><p>Hooker is the younger sibling of former Ohio State player and currently the <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2787/Malik-Hooker-Announces-His-Intentions" target="_blank">NFL safety Malik Hooker</a>. Marcus was rated a three-star recruit and was signed as part of the well-regarded 2018 class that was associated with high expectations. He began classes at Ohio State in 2018 and began playing in the summer of 2018 with the Buckeyes. Since then he has started in multiple games in the Ohio State secondary during his career.</p>
<p>Playing in 11 career games, Hooker has amassed a total of 23 tackles, one interception and a fumble recovery. He began the season as a starter in 2020 but did not manage to lock up the position and was eventually passed up in the depth chart.</p>
<h2>No Time Table on a Return</h2><p>Hooker has endured an up-and-down career since that rather inauspicious start. This event has marred what was looking to be a key spring training for him. The spring will now open without him available in practice and there is no definitive timeline for when he is likely to return to the Buckeyes. The duration of his suspension has not yet been decided or is unknown and no further details have been released by officials from the Ohio State football program. The team is slated to begin spring practice on Friday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.</p>

  Kenyatta Jackson Jr Predicted to be Clemson or Ohio State for 2022
Posted by: Steve - 03-05-2021, 06:21 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-78aadf73f777_E8A1-KenyattaJacksonJr_2.png"><img width="244" height="168" title="KenyattaJacksonJr" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="KenyattaJacksonJr" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-78aadf73f777_E8A1-KenyattaJacksonJr_thumb.png" border="0"></a></p><p>Hollywood Florida defensive end <a href="https://twitter.com/_21shotz" target="_blank">Kenyatta Jackson Jr</a>, one of the best in the class of 2022, is predicted to either commit to Clemson or Ohio State for their next recruiting class. The 6’5” 230 lbs. 4 star defensive lineman is considered the 6th best at his position and the 85 best overall for the class nationally. He is being recruited for Ohio State by <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/1539/defensive-coaching-changes-at-the-ohio-state-university" target="_blank">Larry Johnson</a>. Anna Hickey from <a href="https://rubbingtherock.com/2021/02/03/clemson-football-4-star-de-prediction/" target="_blank">Clemson247</a> has him going to Clemson while <a href="https://twitter.com/gabyurrutia22?lang=en" target="_blank">Gaby Urrutia</a> of InsideTheU predicts he will commit to the Buckeyes.</p><h2>What Kenyatta Jackson Offers</h2><p>Jackson is recognized as a disruptive player at the defensive end position with a large wing-span and great hands. He can get to the quarterback and also pursues running backs just as easily. Comes from a family or NFL players with uncles and a grandfather all playing in the pros.</p><h2>NCAA Dead Period and Ohio State 2022</h2><p>Recruiting is currently in a dead-period declared by the NCAA to combat the spread of coronavirus. Ohio State has still been able to seal-the-deal with 11 recruits for 2022 and hopes to continue to have success. The Buckeyes currently have a class ranked as the best in the country. They do not have any defensive ends at this point in time but are strongly pursuing Enai White from Philadelphia, and Jackson.</p>

  Ryan Day Announces 2021 Coaching Team Changes At Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 02-15-2021, 06:11 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-20c4548c4043_14113-MattBarnesOhioState_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="MattBarnesOhioState" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="MattBarnesOhioState" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-20c4548c4043_14113-MattBarnesOhioState_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">Ryan Day</a>, Ohio State head coach, announced that some changes in Ohio State coaches with <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/coach/parker-fleming-2/" target="_blank">Parker Fleming</a> being promoted from quality control coach to special teams coordinator. This comes after Day's announcement late last month that <a href="https://twitter.com/coachgmattison" target="_blank">Greg Mattison</a> would be retiring. He was the Buckeyes co-defensive coordinator, leaving only one spot for Day to fill in his coaching staff.</p> <h2>Matt Barnes Defense Backs Coach</h2><p><a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/coach/matt-barnes/" target="_blank">Matt Barnes</a> has also been promoted to defensive backs coach from special teams coordinator/safeties coach which will free up defensive coordinator <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3032/coach-kerry-coombs-the-bull-goes-home-and-recruits-martinez" target="_blank">Kerry Coombs</a> to work with the defense. Among the Ohio State coaches, Day said that Matt Barnes has done an excellent job in special teams and has a great background on defense and considers him a great young coach (Barnes is only 34). </p> <p>He also said he was excited at the changes and with Barnes spending his time with the secondary (though still helping with special teams) as he wanted continuity with special teams where he said the team had done a great job. Parker Fleming is someone that knows very well what we do, he continued, and said that he had earned the respect of the team.</p> <h2>Parker Fleming Quality Control Coach</h2><p>Fleming, 31, has been at Ohio State for the last three seasons as quality control coach and was a graduate assistant in 2012&13 at OSU. He is a native of Atlanta, Ga., and was a quarterback at Presbyterian College from 2007 to 2009. He began his coaching career coaching quarterbacks in 2010 after which he took his talents to Columbus, Ohio where he was the quarterback coach at Capital University in 2011.</p> <p>This led to Fleming joining Urban Meyer's staff at Ohio State in 2012 working as a graduate assistant with offense and special teams a post he held for two seasons. In 2016 he moved to Texas State as special teams coordinator and wide receiver coach and in 2017 they him to offensive coordinator and special teams coach after which he returned to Ohio State in 2018 as a quality control coach while still working closely with special teams.</p> <p>It has been revealed that Day is also expected to hire a veteran coach, that has previous experience as a head coach, as a defensive consultant for Ohio State. Day went on to say that no one will carry the 'co-defensive coordinator' title which Mattison did.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Sugar Bowl Ohio State v Clemson CFB Playoff

This is the 2nd game of the semi-final round that night (The Rose Bowl is Alabama vs Notre Dame at 4pm). The Clemson Tigers are favored by 7 points with <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dabo_Swinney" target="_blank">head coach Dabo Swinney</a> notably voting for Ohio State to be ranked 11th in the country instead of their final placement of third.</p><h2>Ohio State Still Getting Started</h2><p><a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">The Ohio State Buckeyes</a> have only played 6 games this season compared to the eleven games that Clemson has played. No fault of their own, but they lack the experience of other teams from other conferences that didn’t sit out two months. <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">Running back Trey Sermon</a> just got going in the <a href="https://bigten.org/sports/2020/11/24/FCG_2020.aspx" target="_blank">Big Ten championship game</a> when in a normal season he would have 5 more productive games under his belt.</p><p>Hopefully Ohio State has their best game still in them and puts it out there on Friday in the CFB Playoff. Ohio State can have big run yards again this week, like they did against Northwestern, but they will need to put the ball in the end-zone and not settle for field goals to beat Clemson.</p><h2>Clemson is Dangerous</h2><p>Clemson can probably get a lot of yards receiving against the unexperienced secondary of Ohio state, who will most likely play soft coverage to keep the big time playmakers (<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amari_Rodgers" target="_blank">Amari Rodgers</a>, <a href="https://clemsontigers.com/sports/football/roster/e-j-williams/" target="_blank">EJ Williams</a> and <a href="https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4035465/cornell-powell" target="_blank">Cornell Powell</a>) in front of them. But within the 20 yard red-zone, the receiver advantage is diminished.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Goes Into Big Ten Championship Without 21 Players

Ohio State went 5-0 in a shortened season while missing two games due to Covid 19 breakouts, one against Maryland and an OSU cancellation against Illinois. A late rule change made the team eligible for the Championship Game today but the team continues to have some issues, most notably is leading receiver Chris Olave.</p><p><strong>NCAA Championship Playoff Birth</strong></p><p>If the Buckeyes can win against number 14 Northwestern (6-1), and they are favored by 20.5 points, this will be their fourth straight Big Ten title. The Ohio State football team also played Michigan State without 23 players, still able to handle them without a problem. A win puts them into the mix for the 6 team NCAA playoff including the Rose Bowl.</p><p><strong>Unavailable Players</strong></p><p>Players that are unavailable include linebacker Baron Browning, running back Steele Chambers, punter Drue Chrisman, defensive end Tyler Friday, quarterback Gunnar Hoak, wide receiver Chris Olave, wide receiver Jaxson Smith-Njigba, and many others.</p><p><strong>New Targets for Just Fields</strong></p><p>Olave is having a great season with 5 touchdowns and 528 yards on 36 receptions. Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams will be the main targets today for quarter back Justin Fields with Olave out. Also look for receiver Demario McCall, tight end Jeremey Ruckert, and tight end Luke Farrell to be targets today.</p> <iframe width="898" height="384" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FhsnPonH700" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>2020 Ohio State Football: Big Ten Championship Trailer</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Football Back in Action against Michigan State Saturday at Noon
Posted by: Steve - 12-05-2020, 05:37 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Football-Back-in-Action-again_E401-OhioStatevMichiganState_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStatevMichiganState" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStatevMichiganState" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Football-Back-in-Action-again_E401-OhioStatevMichiganState_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>The 4-0 <a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">Ohio State Buckeyes</a> are set to return to action this weekend against the Spartans of Michigan State (2-3). Kickoff time is noon with limited attendance in East Lansing Michigan. The game can be watched on ABC. Ohio State had to cancel their game last weekend against Illinois while their <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">head coach Ryan Day</a> will also miss this game after testing positive for Covid-19.</p><h2>2020 College Football Playoffs</h2><p>Ohio State is still hopeful of making the College Football Playoffs this season but need a little help from Michigan in playing them next week after they also are having Covid-19 tests spoil some of their season. If Ohio State can play their final two regular season games against Michigan State and Michigan, win them both, they will be eligible for the Big Ten Championship game the following week. But if one game is cancelled, the Buckeyes will not have met the 6 game requirement to play.</p><h2>Michigan State Football</h2><p>Michigan State had their best game so far last weekend beating Northwestern 29-20.</p><p>The Spartans have an outstanding linebacker coming after Justin Fields in <a href="https://msuspartans.com/sports/football/roster/antjuan-simmons/10498" target="_blank">Antjuan Simmons</a> (Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week) who is 2nd in the conference with 10.6 tackles a game. The team is prone to get sacks and turn-overs, similar to Indiana. They got 4 sacks and 4 interceptions against the Wildcats last week. Mel Tucker returns to the Big Ten after coaching Colorado one year to lead Michigan State. </p><p>Michigan State’s main problem is at quarterback where <a href="https://msuspartans.com/sports/football/roster/rocky-lombardi/10476" target="_blank">Rocky Lombardi</a> throws as many interceptions as touchdowns. He also is not able to complete many passes, just 11 for 27 last week. He does make up for the poor passing with his ability to run the ball, putting up 65 yards in the most recent win.</p><h2>Why Ohio State Wins</h2><p>Ohio State is a 24 point favorite in this game. Last time out, against Indiana, <a href="https://twitter.com/justnfields" target="_blank">quarterback Justin Fields</a> put up great numbers when discounting the 3 interceptions, with 378 yards and three touchdowns. Fields is leading the nation in passing percentage at 79.6%. <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/roster/master-teague/" target="_blank">Running Back Master Teague</a> had one of his best games with 169 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Their receiving core is still looking very strong with <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2917/Ohio-State-Gets-Garrett-Wilson" target="_blank">sophomore Garrett Wilson</a> having one of his best games at OSU two weeks ago. <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/articleid/2896" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a> also had 100+ yards receiving against the Hoosiers.</p><div class="feedflare">

  No 3 Ohio State v No 9 Indiana 2020
Posted by: Steve - 11-20-2020, 05:45 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-No-2-Ohio-State-v-Indiana-2020_C367-OhioStateIndiana_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStateIndiana" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStateIndiana" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-No-2-Ohio-State-v-Indiana-2020_C367-OhioStateIndiana_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>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. </p><h2>Ohio State Offense</h2><p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2955/justin-fields-is-moving-from-georgia-to-ohio-state" target="_blank">Justin Fields</a> 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 <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/articleid/2896" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a> and <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2917/Ohio-State-Gets-Garrett-Wilson" target="_blank">Garrett Wilson</a>. They have 632 yards and 6 touchdowns combined. At <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2842/Tight-End-Jeremy-Ruckert-Commits-to-Ohio-State" target="_blank">tight-end Jeremy Ruckert</a> has 3 touchdowns already on 9 catches for 60 yards. </p><p><a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2836/Master-Teague-III-Has-Chosen-OSU" target="_blank">Master Teague III</a> 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 <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">Trey Sermon</a> have been able to get what the team needs.</p><h2>Ohio State Defense</h2><p>Defensively, Ohio State needs to improve in coverage and in the pass rush. Without Chase Young they have looked to <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/1640/Jonathon-Cooper-of-Lincoln-Gahanna-High-School" target="_blank">Jonathan Cooper</a> and <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2952/ohio-state-snatches-zach-harrison-just-in-time-for-the-holidays" target="_blank">Zach Harrison</a> on the end, both who have been slowing starting to show that they can dominate a game. Quarterback <a href="https://iuhoosiers.com/sports/football/roster/michael-penix-jr-/14628" target="_blank">Michael Penix Jr</a> 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.</p><div class="feedflare">
