Dotting the ‘Eyes: Ohio State notes from last weekend before signing day

Stay in touch or be left out because Ohio State recruiting is a 24-hour, seven-day-per-week obsession. What’s the latest news as the Buckeyes build for the future? Get that and more Sunday through Thursday on Lettermen Row, including tonight’s update on key Ohio State targets with signing day just three days away.

Let’s not frost this cupcake too much then, OK? This update today isn’t going to read well if you’re Greg Studrawa.

The vibe coming from Springfield (Ill.) right now is that Sacred Heart Griffin High School 3-star offensive lineman Nick Broeker is likely to stay with his commitment to Ole Miss and not flip his verbal to Ohio State. The Buckeyes have worked hard to get in the door here but the unease around who will actually be on the coaching staff looks to be working against the Buckeyes.

Following Broeker’s back-to-back visits with Ole Miss and Ohio State, things been interesting according to the 6-foot-6, 285-pound lineman.

“It’s been pretty wild honestly,” Broeker told Lettermen Row of his last week. “All that’s going on with recruiting and balancing that with school and basketball. It’s been crazy.”

It’s been crazy and it’s been wild but the country’s 39th-ranked offensive tackle says there’s been no final decision in his recruitment. There will be no final call until Thursday (not Wednesday because of a faculty meeting at school) and in fact, amid the chaos, Broeker says he and his family haven’t begun to break down the decision.

“I know it sounds crazy, but between basketball and finals prep,” Broeker said. “We haven’t had any time to discuss it.”

The comfort and relationships here point to Ole Miss, and that’s why right now it’s my belief the likely outcome is that Broeker does stick with Ole Miss.

I would love to have more information about the quality of position coaches at Ohio State. All season long there have been rumblings that Studrawa and Davis and Taver Johnson are incompetents, otherwise the Buckeyes would not have had this “dreadful” 12 and 1 season.

Birm, any word when Day will make any moves about the staff. If that is what some recruits want to hear then the sooner the better

He said he wouldn’t make any decisions until after the Rose Bowl

Not sure if Day can with Urban still the head coach. After the Rose Bowl when he becomes head coach is more likely.
