Let's talk O-line recruiting

Ohio State has the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation for 2025, so of course we are going to focus on the negatives. Just joking. However, what are thoughts on the Buckeyes' offensive line recruiting efforts thus far? They landed a great in-state offensive tackle in Carter Lowe, who is ranked as the No. 33 overall player in the country by 247Sports. However, will Justin Frye be able to reel in any of the top OL prospects from out of state? Dave Biddle and Matt Baxendell discuss that on today's show, plus: * The Sporting News ranked Ohio State as having the seventh-toughest schedule in the Big Ten this season. The publication ranked Michigan as having the toughest slate. Thoughts? * What do we think about the Buckeyes' special teams this year? Can this finally be a weapon and not a weakness?

Buckeyes land elite safety, vault to No. 1 class in the land

The beat goes on for Ohio State's 2025 recruiting class as the Buckeyes landed the No. 2 safety prospect in the country, Faheem Delane. The Buckeyes had already boasted the best class in the nation in terms of average player ranking. Well, now they are the No. 1 class when equating both quality and quantity ... and they only have 14 commits in the class. OSU's average player ranking that is north of 95 is almost unheard of. Dave Biddle and Dan Rubin discuss that and other Buckeye football topics on the Monday 5ish.

What is the most-improved position group on Ohio State's team this year?

What is the most-improved position group on Ohio State's team this year? That is the main topic Jonah Booker and Dave Biddle tackle on today's show. Could it be the offensive line? What about running back with not only TreVeyon Henderson returning (and hopefully staying healthy) but welcoming in Quinshon Judkins as a transfer? Or even though the Buckeyes' secondary was very good last year, could the answer to the main topic of the show be the defensive backs. Not only did Denzel Burke, Jordan Hancock and Lathan Ransom decide to return for one more year, but Davison Igbinosun is also back. Furthermore, the Buckeyes landed the best player in the transfer portal regardless of position, safety Caleb Downs. Could it be quarterback with Will Howard likely replacing Kyle McCord? Could it be a different position like the linebackers? There are no right or wrong answers here (unless we say otherwise) but we thought it would be a fun topic to discuss. We will also talk the latest on the recruiting front and more. That is coming your way on the Friday 5ish.

Schools can now pay players directly | What this means for OSU, future of college sports

A landmark settlement on Thursday between the NCAA and three federal antitrust cases will pave the way for Ohio State and other major conference members to directly pay their players. The settlement will pay "roughly $2.7 billion in damages to past and current athletes over the next 10 years," per ESPN. But the aspect of the settlement that we will all remember is that the parties have agreed to a revenue-sharing system where schools can pay up to $20 million to their players. But how will that $20 million be divided? Will the football players get the vast majority of that money, since they are the ones generating the most revenue? And will it be equally distributed among all players? Will the star players get more? And how exactly would that be determined? Yes, we have a lot of questions about this. Another one being ... what is going to happen to a lot of the non-revenue sports? Are we going to look up 5 or 10 years from now and see far less non-revenue sports across collegiate athletics? Also: Are we headed down a path where the Big Ten and SEC break away from the NCAA? Dave Biddle and Jonah Booker discuss all of that and much more on the Friday 5ish.

We wonder if this is basically a one-off, or perhaps the start of a trend in college football when NIL promises are not kept. Matt Baxendell joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus: * Thoughts on the Buckeyes' 2025 recruiting class and what might transpire over the next two months. * Ohio State's 2024 offensive line is the biggest question mark on the team.

OSU's title odds continue to improve | Vibes on Trey McNutt? | Marv sued by Fanatics

We bounce around to several Ohio State topics on today's show as Dan Rubin joins Dave Biddle. Items on the docket include: * When we did the show last Monday, the Buckeyes' odds to win the 2024 national championship were +425. That was an improvement over the +500 odds that OSU had in late April. Well, now the odds have improved once again. Ohio State is now listed at +350 to win it all, just barely behind Georgia at +325. Then it's a big jump to the team with the third-lowest odds -- Texas -- at +750. Oregon is next at +900. We just find it interesting that the Buckeyes' odds improve seemingly each week, while the odds for the vast majority of other teams have held steady. * The nation's No. 1 safety recruit, Trey McNutt, is going to take all of his official visits between May 31 and the end of June. What are our vibes as far as the Buckeyes landing McNutt? * Any concern that Ohio State might lose the nation's No. 2 corner, Na'eem Offord? Or is he just having some fun with the process and there is nothing to worry about here? * Here is one we didn't expect to see: Fanatics is suing Marvin Harrison Jr., claiming he breached a "term sheet" agreement last year. * Mike Conley Jr. continues to have a very good -- and frankly underrated -- NBA career. Conley, 36, is the starting point guard of the Minnesota Timberwolves, who upset the defending NBA champion Denver Nuggets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals last night. It was 17 years ago when Conley helped lead the Buckeyes to the 2007 national championship game. All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish.

Bucknuts Happy Hour: Why players don't always transfer | Buckeyes still looking in transfer portal?

Ohio State has not been one of the schools that has gone all in on the transfer portal. Under Ryan Day the last few years, the Buckeyes have continued to focus on adding high school talent and taken a pick-and-choose approach to the transfer portal, finding talent where they need it and filling holes when necessary. What has made the Scarlet and Gray successful early in the transfer portal era, however, is that Ohio State hasn't lost key players at important positions. Day has made it clear that retaining talent is just as important, if not more so, than adding collegiate players. It is important that the Buckeyes are developing most of their players for themselves and not other programs. But the Scarlet and Gray have lost some players to the transfer portal over the last offseasons. In this day and age, this is unavoidable. Bucknuts looks back at the 2022 offseason and the players who elected to depart the Ohio State program. Where did they go, and how have they performed since leaving Columbus?

Will the Buckeyes land either of them? * As it turns out, defensive tackle Tywone Malone has two seasons of eligibility remaining. The confusion stemmed from OSU's official roster stating he had only one year left. * What are the chances the Buckeyes land the No. 1 OT in the country in the 2025 class, David Sanders Jr.? * What does JBook think about OSU's chances of landing some of the other offensive linemen they have offered, such as 4-star Jackson Lloyd from California?

Running back breakdown | Moore to come | Shopping for safety in portal?

Today's show delves into various topics about Ohio State football with Dave Biddle and Dan Rubin. Up first on the docket is our breakdown of the Buckeyes' running backs this season. Will TreVeyon Henderson and Quinshon Judkins prove they are the best 1-2 punch at the RB position in the country this season? How do we feel about true freshmen James Peoples and Sam Williams-Dixon? Will third-year sophomore T.C. Caffey be put on scholarship and what do we expect from him? Then Dan will share his vibe on redshirt freshman defensive tackle Jason Moore, who Larry Johnson referred to as the "ideal 3-tech in our defense" during spring ball. Also, we are hearing the Buckeyes are looking at safeties in the transfer portal, just for depth purposes. Right now there are only five scholarship safeties on the roster, although freshman Leroy Roker will raise that number to six when he enrolls next month. The team also has a talented walk-on safety in junior Inky Jones (who is another candidate to get bumped up to scholarship status). All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish.

How is the depth chart shaping up with fifth-year senior Gee Scott Jr., fourth-year junior Will Kacmarek who transferred in from Ohio University, sophomore Jelani Thurman, third-year sophomore Bennett Christian and fourth-year junior walk-on (who might not be a walk-on for much longer) Patrick Gurd? What can be expected from the group? How much 12 personnel will the Buckeyes deploy under Kelly's guidance? Dave Biddle and Matt Baxendell discuss that on today's show, plus: * It looks like the dust has settled on the transfer portal from OSU's perspective. There are a total of six Buckeyes who entered the portal during this window, but other than perhaps Dallan Hayden -- who was in line to be the No. 3 tailback -- it does not appear as though OSU lost anyone who was in the plans for meaningful playing time. Are we surprised none of the Buckeyes' quarterbacks entered the portal? * We take questions from our live audience on a variety of Ohio State football topics. All of that and more is coming your way on the Wednesday 5ish.

Over/under 14.5 Buckeyes drafted in 2025? | Shaky offseason for Diebler?

Could Ohio State set the record with 15 draft picks next year? We think there is a very good chance as we are setting the fake odds at our fake sportsbook at 14.5 players from OSU drafted in 2025. Also, the transfer portal closes after tomorrow and so far OSU has avoided any notable departures. Also, has it been a disappointing offseason for Jake Diebler and Ohio State's basketball program thus far? Steve Helwagen, Patrick Murphy and Dave Biddle discuss that and much more on the Monday 5ish.

Linebacker expectations | 'Tat 5' wants 2010 season restored

There were some questions about Ohio State's linebackers entering spring. However, leaving spring there is quite a bit of optimism that the Buckeyes are set up very nicely at linebacker. The projected starters look good with fifth-year senior Cody Simon and junior C.J. Hicks. Also turning in good springs were junior Sonny Styles and third-year sophomore Gabe Powers, who are both sure to play a lot this fall in James Laurinaitis' rotation. Another young linebacker to keep an eye on is sophomore Arvell Reese. Dave Biddle flies solo on today's show and takes a close look at the Buckeyes' situation at linebacker for 2024, plus: * The "Tat 5" is calling for the 2010 season to be restored, including all statistics. In light of Reggie Bush getting his Heisman back, it makes sense. Will it work? Probably not, but we're on their side and we hope it does. Keep in mind the Buckeyes were 12-1 that season, with a Big Ten championship and a Sugar Bowl win. And of course Jim Tressel's ninth win over Michigan in 10 tries. * The first round of the NFL Draft is tonight, beginning at 8 ET. Will Marvin Harrison Jr. be the first non-QB off the board? * It is slim pickings in the transfer portal right now. The best offensive tackle in the portal is Andrew Chamblee from Arkansas, who started eight games as a redshirt freshman in 2023 at left tackle and earned SEC All-Freshman honors. He was a 4-star prospect coming out of high school (No. 18 OT, No. 204 overall prospect in 2022 class, per 247Sports) but is ranked as a 3-star in the transfer portal. 247Sports ranks him as just the No. 22 OT and the No. 445 overall player to enter the portal since the end of the 2023 season. Do we think he would be an automatic upgrade compared to OSU's current tackles? Yeah, probably not. All of that and more is coming your way on the Thursday 5ish.

Howard QB1? Which QB (if any) transfers? | Add OT via portal?

We talk a lot about Ohio State's quarterbacks on today's show as Matt Baxendell joins Dave Biddle. How confident are we that Will Howard will be the Buckeyes' starter and perform well? If Howard is the starter, it seems likely that another quarterback will transfer. Who might that be? Or is there a legit chance all five scholarship QBs stick around for the 2024 season? Also, are the Buckeyes looking to add an offensive tackle via the transfer portal. Will they find one? On Tuesday, The Athletic quoted several anonymous NFL scouts who say they prefer Malik Nabers over Marvin Harrison Jr. in tomorrow's NFL Draft. Heresy? Or is there something to this? All of that and more is coming your way on the Wednesday 5ish.

St. Clair superlatives | Buckeyes staff hits road

The future is so bright we gotta we (goodr) shades. We are talking quarterback and Ohio State, of course. Currently, the Buckeyes QB is an overflow talent situation and we are monitoring ... closely.

QBs ... big stage ... must be time for future Buckeye Tavien St. Clair. The Class of 2025 star earned an Elite 11 invite with Bill Kurelic and other celebrities in attendance.

Feeling a Draft | How many Buckeyes will be taken next year? | Okpara bails | Howard's pocket presence

It is NFL Draft week and that is cause for celebration. It will be a light year for Ohio State's standards with perhaps just five Buckeyes hearing their names called this week. However, that is perfectly fine with us because it means a bunch of guys came back who would have at least been second-day (second-third round) picks. Speaking of all those guys coming back, just how many OSU players will be drafted next year? If we set the over/under at 12.5, which way are you rolling? Also, center Felix Okpara is taking his basketball and going ... well ... not home. But he has decided Ohio State will no longer be his home as he entered the transfer portal yesterday. What led up to this? What do we think of the job that Jake Diebler is doing overall thus far? We close the show talking about Ohio State quarterback Will Howard. The more film we watch of him, the more impressed we are with his pocket presence. Dan Rubin and Dave Biddle discuss all of that and more on the Monday 5ish.

Wrapping up what we learned during spring ball | Quiet portal so far

What did we learn about Ohio State's 2024 football team during spring ball? How do we feel about the Buckeyes heading into this season? Also, the transfer portal has been very quiet for OSU thus far. With heavy emphasis on the last two words of the previous sentence. Jonah Booker and Dave Biddle discuss that in detail on the Friday 5ish.

Georgia on our mind | Devin Sanchez superlatives

It used to be a real easy answer. The question: Which state produces the best Division I football talent? It was always Florida, California and Texas. And those states still produce a ton of talent. But right now the state boasting the BEST talent is Georgia. And wouldn't ya know, Ohio State is doing work in the Bulldogs' backyard. Bill Kurelic and Mark Porter are here to dive deep on four elite Georgians that visited Ohio State this past weekend and each left with an offer (if they didn't have one already). Also, in honor of Devin Sanchez officially shutting down his recruitment, we show you why it's worth being totally geeked about the Houston, Texas native. Spend 5ish with us this a.m., 'Nutters!
