How much are five-star recruits worth to programs?

COLUMBUS — On the latest edition of the Tim May Podcast, Tim is joined by Dr. Trevon Logan, a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

A Hazel C. Youngberg Distinguished Professor of Economics, Logan discussed the recent Ohio State study that dove into how much four- and five-star prospects are worth for their respective schools. Logan helped conduct the study that proved five-star prospects bring in more revenue than other recruits.

Later in the show, Tim was joined by Lettermen Row senior writer Austin Ward to further break down the findings of the study, as well as more developments from the world of Ohio State football and the continued quarantine in effect.
