    Well, that was quite the bombshell. Thursday came the announcement that USC and UCLA would be joining the Big Ten, beginning with the 2024-25 academic year. Are we surprised by this news? Or did we think something like this was coming down the pike? Also, what does this mean for the Big Ten going forward? Will they stop at 16 teams, or create a superconference with 20 or more teams? And if they add four more programs, who are the most-likely candidates? Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle to discuss that and more about the Trojans and Bruins becoming members of the Big Ten on the Friday 5ish. Learn more about your ad choices.

    Oh what a week it was for Ohio State and Brian Hartline last week as the Buckeyes landed a trio of highly-rated wide receivers in consecutive days. First it was 5-star Carnell Tate (the nation's No. 3 WR per the 247Sports Composite), then it was 5-star Brandon Inniss (No. 2 WR) and wrapping up the three-day odyssey was high 4-star Noah Rogers (No. 9 WR). That's a total of 14 stars in three days. Not too shabby. Hartline continues to prove he is the best recruiter in the country among all position coaches, and he spoke to NFL Network over the weekend about his recruiting philosophy. We will touch on that on today's show as well. But what about defensive recruiting, you ask? Today's show will also take a look at a trio of 4-star defensive recruits who took official visits to Ohio State this past weekend. They include cornerback Kayin Lee, defensive tackle John Walker and DT/DE Darron Reed. The good news for the Buckeyes regarding each of them? The Dean of Ohio State Football Recruiting, Bill Kurelic, has put in a Crystal Ball for OSU to land them. Doesn't mean the fight is over for any of them -- it's not -- but it's trending very well for the Scarlet & Gray. All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish as Dave Biddle flies solo.

    Marotti's evolution | JK Johnson, Ballard two fastest on team?

    Play Episode Listen Later May 9, 2022 25:08

    Six Ohio State assistant coaches were made available to the media on Friday, including strength coach Mickey Marotti. The media only gets an opportunity to speak with Mick about once per year, so it's always interesting to hear from him. How has one of the best in the business evolved his methods in recent years? What did the loss to Michigan do in terms of how the program approaches certain things? Patrick Murphy joins Dave Biddle to discuss that on today's show, plus: * Are redshirt freshmen J.K. Johnson and Jayden Ballard the two fastest players on the Buckeyes' team? * Kicker Noah Ruggles is coming back which is great news for OSU. * The bad news after speaking with head coach Ryan Day on Friday is defensive end Mitchell Melton is out for the season with a torn ACL, and running back Marcus Crowley is retiring from football after another serious knee injury. We also chat about what stood out from the interviews with Jim Knowles, Justin Frye and more. All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish. Learn more about your ad choices.

    Ohio State added to its reputation of being "WR U" last night as Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave were drafted back-to-back with the Nos. 10 and 11 overall picks in the NFL Draft. Wilson went to the New York Jets, while the New Orleans Saints traded up to get Olave. Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle to discuss that and where the other Buckeyes might go in the draft tonight and tomorrow. Also, is Ohio State keeping up with the arms race in college football recruiting when it comes to NIL deals? As it stands, the Buckeyes are not guaranteeing upfront money for recruits like NIL collectives at other programs. Plus we take questions from viewers on our live broadcast and much more.
