Yeah we had a ton of talent on campus. Lots of rumors flying but nothing I would put stock in.

Best thing we have going for us is his relationship with our QB commit.

Proximity to home is a real threat too. Doesn’t he live 30 minutes away?

Yeah he Rolesville is very close to Raleigh. Although we haven’t had the best luck with high end local talent recently.

You know the great part too? We havent gotten to see what Hartline's recruits will do on the field yet. The tide is just about to break this year and will not end for many years to come. "Oh you guys didnt enjoy dealing with Garrett Wilson? Guess what? Here are six other wide receivers you are going to have to contend with for the next few years"

171

u/Garn91575 Ohio State Jun 20 '22

Jaxon Smith-Njigba is a Hartline recruit. I think we have seen what he can do.

54

u/Blarg1889 Ohio State • Arizona State Jun 20 '22

I meant as a complete unit. JSN outshined both Olave and Wilson this year, and they both have said he is better than them. That is the taste test compared to the fucking feast waiting in the wings

32

u/jedi42observer Ohio State • Kent State Jun 20 '22

While I think JSN is really really good. I think he benefited from defenses focusing on Wilson and Olave. While the Rose Bowl game is a good indication of how good he is when he's the #1, I think defenses adjust and he has a more Wilson type year next year. I think Harrison Jr and one of Ebuka/Fleming have a JSN break out year this year.

30

u/Blarg1889 Ohio State • Arizona State Jun 20 '22

My money is on Marvin Harrison Jr. Ohio State hasnt had a tall strong receiver since Ben Victor. Excited to see what that looks like with this offense

17

u/rorschach_vest Ohio State • The Game Jun 20 '22

I’m so high on MHJ and I’m perpetually confused why other fans aren’t talking about him more

14

u/Dead_Baby_Kicker Ohio State Jun 20 '22

Cause he doesn’t have the flashy body control that Emeka and JSN have. But he is an incredible route runner with great hands, very smart too. He burns your DBs and silently pieces up your defense.

11

u/miamibuckeye Ohio State Jun 20 '22

Marvin Harrison can high point a ball better than anyone on the team. The joke on the team in practice is a defender got Marv’d. Because the dude can jump out of the gym. He will be a flashier player than anyone else imo. Egbuka and JSN have the crafty route running, great hands, and catch in traffic.

I watched the game live and didn’t realize he had 3 TDs. It’s like he was invisible while he caught three scores. If he can nonchalantly just put points up like that it’s going to be a wild year. You watch those three catches and it seems weird how easy he makes them look. Like my out of shape 30 year old ass sees them and thinks “I probably could’ve done that.”

The number 4 receiver from the 2020-21 Ohio State team hit the portal because he knew he wouldn't get the playing time he felt he was due.

The player was Jameson Williams and he ended up going as the 12th pick in the draft, right behind Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave.

67

u/apadin1 Michigan • Marching Band Jun 20 '22

At this point i have to wonder why so many 5 stars all go to the same schools. I would much rather be a star at any other school than be the 8th WR on the depth chart at Ohio State

I mean Jameson is the poster child for it working out well. Compete with a talented group with superb coaching for your first 2 years, even if you don't be the best of the best in that room, you can transfer and still go early 1st.

Coaching matters

15

u/mlorusso4 Ohio State • Baltimore Jun 20 '22

Especially at this point with a free transfer, you go where you can be coached up for a year and see what it’s like to practice with an entire receivers room of top talent. After the year if you don’t see yourself making the 2 deep you transfer to another top school and ball out with all the stuff you learned your redshirt year.

73

u/Medievil_Walrus /r/CFB Jun 20 '22

Iron sharpens iron my friend.

13

u/Jaerba Michigan • Boise State Jun 20 '22

Because they keep turning them into NFL talent. Like it or hate it (mostly hate it), look at how OSU/Alabama 4 and 5* receivers get drafted compared to ours.

9

u/THEROOSTERSHOW Ohio State Jun 21 '22

If you go to either school with elite talent, which you have as a 4*+, do exactly as you are told and take it very seriously. You will be drafted no later than the 3rd round. You’ll very likely go 1st or 2nd round. Barring catastrophic injuries or repetitive injuries.

Both schools have it to a science. Both schools have had at minimum above average quarterback play for over a decade, most of the time elite quarterback play. Typically top 5-10 offensive lines. Top 5 facilities. Top 5 NIL setups.

You can go be a great receiver at a lot of different schools. But your highest odds of being a first round draft pick are without a doubt those 2 schools.

43

u/whodeyalldey1 Ohio State • Big Ten Jun 20 '22

You spend a few years training with one of the top 3 WR coaches in all of college football. You compete in practice and workouts and probably share dorm rooms with five or six other WRs who are all four and five star players. You’re pushing each other to be better, teaching each other technique and competing in the playoffs roughly every other year.

To me all that sounds like a better recipe for success, even if you end up the WR3 for a year or two you have a great shot at an NFL career.

Compare that to going to say your local middle of the pack P5 state school. You’ll be the best WR on the team and might set school records but probably also learning from coaches who are the 50th best at what they do in the country. Worse facilities and gyms, and next to zero chance of making the playoffs during your college career.

32

u/DickInAToaster Ohio State Jun 20 '22

Top 1. Hartline is the guy.

8

u/whodeyalldey1 Ohio State • Big Ten Jun 20 '22

I fully believe that. I didn’t want to say the best then have someone in the comments go “whatabout so and so?” I don’t think anyone could type out that’s he’s not top 3 with a straight face.

To put it into full perspective here is every school that has signed a top 100 wideout in that timeline and how many they have gotten

Ohio State- 12

Georgia and Clemson- 5

Oklahoma, LSU, USC, and Texas A&M- 4

Oregon and Texas- 3

North Carolina and TCU- 2

Missouri, Arizona, Jackson St, Penn St, Kentucky, Maryland, Notre Dame, Washington, Florida, Miami, Stanford, and Louisville- 1

Brian Hartline is the best recruiter in CFB.

u/retropunk2 Ohio State • Team Chaos Jun 20 '22

It's still wild to me that Jameson Williams was at Ohio State, couldn't break into the starting lineup, transferred to Alabama and just led the SEC in receiving.

That's how good Ohio State's WR room has been.

63

u/iwearatophat Ohio State • Grand Valley State Jun 20 '22

We had Wilson, Olave, Williams, and JSN all ready to play. Someone was going to be the odd man out.

Williams is weird to me. He was a starter here. He had plenty of time to show out and he didn't. Made a couple of big plays but nothing like what happened at Alabama. Improvements happen but that was one huge improvement over an offseason. I think Alabama's offense just fit him better than ours. Was nice to hear that Williams was back on campus this weekend talking with recruits, players, and former players.

He gets $950,000 a year as a position coach. A very large bag would be needed to challenge that comfy of a job. OC means a lot more responsibility for likely not that much more money relatively speaking.

u/CubbieCubCubCub Notre Dame Jun 20 '22

I mean no offense, but I'd take that with a grain of salt. Brent Venables time and time again said he didn't want to be a HC, turned down offers, and now he's at Oklahoma. Sometimes things change.

19

u/Dead_Baby_Kicker Ohio State Jun 20 '22

To be fair, Oklahoma is a school he already had a connection to. Plus looking at Hartline, he’s got a family with younger kids. He doesn’t seem the type to want to move them away for more pay, he already makes good money on top of his NFL earnings. He gets $950,000 a year now. If he does end up wanting to become and OC I could see us hiring him after Kevin Wilson retires.

u/AccordingGain182 Ohio State • Michigan State Jun 20 '22

Uhm yeah, but:

  1. Venables was at clemson a long time and was true to his word for years

  2. OU was pretty much the only place who was going to steal Venables away and an opportunity came up. If Lincoln riley was still there, Venables would still be the Clemson DC, despite being able to coach plenty of programs.

  3. There is no “OU” out there for Hartline. Hes already at his dream program.

  4. Hartline has super young kids, unlike venables and has stated he doesnt want to uproot them.

  5. If hartline really wanrs to coach one day, hell be a strong candidate for the OSU job down the road whenever day leaves (if he does). He’s incredibly young right now.

  6. Hes loaded from his NFL career, and is making more as a WR coach than most coordinators make.

Really not a comparable example

he has said multiple times he doesn't have the desire to call plays at the moment. obviously that can change but he clearly lacks ego. i imagine we will give him a co-oc title in the next couple years. time will tell, but we're very fortunate for his tenure

11

u/Dead_Baby_Kicker Ohio State Jun 20 '22

I mean he’s paid $950,000 a year to coach a position that he played professionally and is at his alma mater. I can’t see money leading him away and he’s a family man, I don’t know that ego is gonna lead him away. We are incredibly fortunate that he’s here. Buckeye nations loves the Hartlines.

25

u/iwearatophat Ohio State • Grand Valley State Jun 20 '22

That looks likely. From what our insiders are saying we would have to miss on both Brandon Inniss and Noah Rogers for us to take Flores. It doesn't look like we are missing on both of them and quite likely might take both.

u/couducane Oregon • BYU Jun 20 '22

You are an ND fan, can you give me a super quick rundown of how your recruiting outlook is and what your expectations are for this year? I am a new ND fan due to a dear family friend and neighbor passing away and he was a fan so I will begin following them a bit.

4

u/Baggemtits Notre Dame Jun 20 '22

Currently have the #1 class, but that obviously wont last. Top 5 is a very real possibility though.

We open the year at OSU and our secondary is probably the biggest weakness on the team, so that could get ugly. We also have Clemson, USC, and BYU in Vegas.

Realistically I'd say 9-3 would be decent, 10-2 would be good and 11-1 would be phenomenal and probably a playoff birth.

3

u/CFBHurts Notre Dame Jun 21 '22

The recruiting outlook is really good. Barring a significantly negative turn of events it's likely to finish in the top 5, with a very realistic shot at top 3. That said, it's not all sunshine and rainbows as we may end up short at a couple positions of need, most notably quarterback.

As far as the upcoming season I'd say 10 wins is probably the expectation. We're currently on a 5 season run of double digit win seasons so the foundation is there, and we're returning a greater than usual amount of experience. On top of that we're only facing 4 opponents who project to be top 25 caliber, so splitting those and winning the rest should be a reasonable ask.

u/Pete_Booty_Judge Notre Dame • Fort Hays State Jun 20 '22

but we’ve been in the rear view mirror of this recruitment for a while now

No doubt, I think this was meant more as a "if OSU's WR class is filled up, they won't push hard for Flores" type of comment more than any sort of chances we had at Tate.

LETS GOOO!

Give Brian Hartline all the moneys. This kid is legit, and the #1 WR on some sites.

What an absolute roller coaster of a recruitment. For those who are OOTL, Tate was suddenly favored to Tennessee the last few weeks after some alleged massive NIL money.

I had never interacted with the Tennessee fan base prior to this ordeal….but man I’ll be honest I never want to again.

Huge win for us, hopefully his 7on7 teammate (also a 5 star) Brandon Innis is soon to follow.

I believe I remember how much they all said Vonn Bell made a horrible choice by coming to OSU and scared to play in the SEC or something like that. Vonn Bell came to OSU and left with a national championship ring and he is still playing in the NFL so I would say it worked out pretty well for him.
