Four-star defensive lineman AJ Hoffler signed to Clemson on Tuesday night, picking the Tigers over Ohio State, North Carolina and others. Hoffler, who attends Woodward Academy in Atlanta, is the 288th national prospect and the 39th defensive lineman. He is also the No. 29 prospect in Georgia by the 247Sports Composite.

Hoffler had originally planned to commit to a school around his birthday in August, but moved his schedule shortly after visiting the Tigers earlier this month. He is the 13th commitment in this class and the 10th this month for a Tigers program that was a dominant force on the recruiting track in June. Clemson currently has the No. 4 class in the nation.

Hoffler was planning to visit North Carolina at the end of the month, but upon committing to Clemson, he agrees to cancel that visit, per a Dabo Swinney policy for his promises.

Hoffler made an official visit to Clemson June 3-5, where he enjoyed shrimp and grits, a photo shoot, a campus scavenger hunt, basketball at Swinney’s and time outs with current players of the Tigers.

“My host was Myles Murphy but I was hanging out with KJ Henry, TrΓ© Williams, Justin Mascoll (and) Kevin Swint,” Hoffler said. “Almost the majority of the D line.”

Hoffler’s commitment gives Clemson three commitments along the defensive line, all of which are four-star rookies. He is also the sixth player Swinney has taken from Georgia State, joining four-star defensive lineman Vic Burley, four-star linebacker Jamal Anderson, four-star cornerback Avieon Terrell, four-star linebacker Dee Crayton and four-star cornerback Branden.

It’s no secret that Ohio State’s receiving corps continues to be one of the best in the country. What assistant Brian Hartline did during his time in Columbus is going to be hard to match when he one day moves on to bigger and better things.

Last season, OSU saw two explosive wide receivers enter the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, back to back in fact. Garrett Wilson was selected No. 10 overall by the New York Jetsfollowed immediately by Chris Olave at the No. 11 pick by the New Orleans Saints.

And while Ohio State will miss two dynamic point guards like Wilson and Olave, there are still plenty in the closet as evidenced by rewatching the classic Rose Bowl game film last January.

Wilson may have moved on to the NFL, but he backs it all up by racking up praise for the work ethic of Marvin Harrison Jr and Emeka Egbuka. He sang their praises while appearing on The Pivotal Podcast.

Watch the video below and hear how the two players set an example in how they run their business.

The Buckeyes may have lost to the best receivers to ever wear the NFL’s scarlet and gray, but judging by how it looks and sounds, the offense should still be in good hands in the game. assists with CJ Stroud throwing to another talented group. of receivers.

The Michigan Football Big Ten Championship ring bears the Ohio State score https://gpaoh.com/2022/06/18/the-michigan-football-big-ten-championship-ring-bears-the-ohio-state-score/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 00:37:00 +0000 https://gpaoh.com/2022/06/18/the-michigan-football-big-ten-championship-ring-bears-the-ohio-state-score/ There’s a school in East Lansing that got rings for winning the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Pitt last season, and put the score of their victory over rival Michigan in the ring, like it had one direction.

There’s a school in East Lansing that got rings for winning the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Pitt last season, and put the score of their victory over rival Michigan in the ring, like it had one direction. It turns out Michigan is following suit, to some degree, but the two scores the Wolverines included on their rings have a little more credence.

Corn and Blue won the Big Ten for the first time since 2004 last season, and they have finally been revealed. In the ring, there is the Big Ten trophy, the year, the name on the side and the College Football Playoff logo on the other side. But near the top, it has the scores from the Big Ten Championship game against Iowa and – you guessed it – the final game against Ohio State.

Why is this more relevant? Because Michigan won the conference proper, rather than a bowling game against a team that didn’t play its NFL drafted quarterback, and beating Ohio State was the springboard that led the Wolverines at Indianapolis, then the college football playoff semifinals, as the win over the Buckeyes clinched the Big Ten East. MSU’s win over Michigan was just a win over a rival in a game that ultimately decided nothing.

When you think of Ohio State, you don’t necessarily think of the dominant baseball teams. But that’s not to say there haven’t been some pretty memorable years in the history of the Buckeye baseball program.

In the 90s and early 2000s, OSU baseball was the dominant program in the Big Ten, but since then it’s been more of a hit-and-miss affair. The program may still boast a conference tournament championship every few years, but it’s been a very long time since Ohio State has been nationally relevant.

But there was a time when it was. In fact, the Buckeyes have made multiple College World Series appearances and even have a national title to boast of.

With the NCAA World College Series heating up this week in Omaha (said in a Payton Manning voice), we thought we’d go back and take a look whenever there was a scarlet and gray tint on the CWS.

We have known for a while that Malaki Branham was heading to the NBA draft. The one-time Ohio State star announced after his freshman season that he was declaring himself for the draft and announced in late April that he would keep his name in the pool and hire an agent. But now Branham is actually going to the draft.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Branham is one of the players who received an invitation to attend this year’s NBA draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Branham is one of 16 players who received an invitation, by Givonywhich includes Gonzaga Chet Holmgrenduke Paolo BancheroPurdue Jaden Iveyfrom iowa Keegan Murray and Wisconsin Johnny Davis.

Players who are invited to the NBA draft are usually the ones who should hear their names called early in the process. While Branham came to Ohio State without many NBA members knowing his name, he is now projected as a lottery pick after just one season.

During his year with the Buckeyes, Branham went from a talented and exciting prospect for the Scarlet and Gray to one of the toughest players to keep in the Big Ten. Branham’s game is moving favorably toward what NBA teams are looking for in the draft, which is why he chose to forgo another year of college.

Branham is a native of Columbus, Ohio who moved to Akron to play Saint-Vincent-St. Mary High School. After leading the Irish to a state championship in his senior season, Branham left high school as a a four-star prospect, the highest-ranked player in the state and one of the nation’s top 40 prospects in the 2021 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite. Branham was also named Mr. Ohio Basketball in 2021.

Although he has no major Ohio State attachment, Branham has committed to the Buckeyes on offers from a number of top programs. His decision to stay in his home country paid off.

Branham started the 2021-22 season coming off the bench for the Scarlet and Gray but head coach Chris Holtman slotted him into the starting lineup ahead of the second game of the year and never looked back. Although it took time for Branham to fully adapt to college play, once he did, opposing teams had problems.

The freshman announced himself to the world of college basketball in early January, scoring a career-high 35 points in an overtime win at Nebraska. This follows a 22-day layoff for the team due to an outbreak of COVID-19 and Branham, who has never tested positive for the virus, carried the band that night.

Branham went on to establish himself as Ohio State’s second-highest scorer behind the junior forward EJ Liddellrating double digits in 17 of the Buckeyes’ 20 remaining games this year. Branham was crucial in an overtime win over Indiana – scoring 27 points – and in a road upset against Illinois – scoring 31 points. Branham then had 23 points in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, a loss to Villanova.

When the Ohio Stadium field underwent a major change following the 2006 college football season, fans had the opportunity to bring home a piece of history. After the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes defeated rivals and No. 2 Michigan 42-39 in the final game of the regular season to book a spot in the BCS National Championship game, fans stormed the field. Knowing that the grass at the Horseshoe, which had been in place since 1990, was to become turf the following year, many fans took some of that ground with them.

The transition from turf to Ohio Stadium this summer hasn’t been quite as resounding – Scarlet and Gray’s last game on that turf was a 56-7 loss to Michigan State which saw no champ storm – but fans can still be a part of the estate’s history. Although they can’t take the stadium turf home, Ohio State announced Thursday that fans will be able to purchase a piece of the field’s turf.

The Ohio Stadium field bend hasn’t gone on sale yet, but fans can submit their information to be notified when the turf goes on sale.

After the pitch’s turf was installed for the 2007 season, the Buckeyes replaced the pitch in 2014. During the 2021 season, the turf was visibly worn with players experiencing footing issues, prompting questions fans and media on when the pitch would be replaced. and recognition of problems by the head coach Ryan Day. The Scarlet and Gray announced in September that he would be replaced after the football season.

Instead of simply replacing the turf with the same look, Ohio State asked fans to help redesign the field the Buckeyes will play on as part of Ohio Stadium’s 100th anniversary this season. Fans were able to submit their creations and these were voted on after being posted on social media. In February, the Scarlet and Gray announced the new design of the bend in the field.

Ohio State began the process of replacing the turf on the pitch at the Horseshoe earlier this month. The installation process should be complete in early July and ready to go for the Buckeyes’ 2022 season opener against Notre Dame on Saturday, September 3 under the lights.

Soon, for those interested, fans will be able to get a piece of Scarlet and Gray history. This turf has been part of many special Ohio State games over the past eight years, including every home game in the National Championship-winning season in its first year after installation.

For the second day in a row, a young wide receiver stole the show at Ohio State’s recruiting camps.

Chris Henry Jr. impressed Ryan Day and Brian Hartline enough on Monday to secure an offer from Ohio State. Tuesday was 2025 wide Winston Watkins Jr.Around . to take center stage and leave Columbus with an offer in hand.

“It was awesome, it felt like all the hard work I put in paid off,” Watkins Jr said. Eleven Warriors. “It was definitely a top school for me in my recruiting and I just really appreciate the offer.”

Watkins Jr., who was the only offer of the day, impressed Hartline with his soft hands and flowing run. He also made what could arguably be considered the best catch of any recruiting camp so far during individual drills.

The 5-foot-10, 172-pound prospect resumed his OSU bid shortly after camp ended following a meeting with Hartline and Day. Watkins Jr. was the second player in the entire Class of 2025 to sign on after giving his ticket to Texas A&M in December, so OSU will have to turn him over if he hopes to land the potential future five-star talent.

While most recruit camp attendees are uncommitted players hoping to get noticed, Ohio State also welcomed five of its 2023 commitments to campus on Tuesday: Luke Montgomery, Austin Siereveld, Will Smith Jr., Joshua Padilla and Ty Lockwood. Justin Frye and Kevin Wilson held a combo workout with Montgomery, Siereveld, Padilla and Lockwood before the rest of the campers had their afternoon session, while Lockwood also did a full workout with the group. tight ends and the three offensive linemen also had a group. session with Frye.

“It was good,” Lockwood said of training with his colleagues. “I’ve talked to these guys a lot and had a few group chats with them. So it’s good to hang out with them and compete. See what they look like and they see what I look like, so we can match our speeds and get closer to each other.

Lockwood also gave Buckeye fans a boost on social media when he said he was actively campaigning for the 2023 five-star release. Brandon Innis join him in Columbus.

Smith Jr. did not practice at Tuesday’s camp after experiencing cramps at the end of Monday’s session, but still made the trip to Ohio State for his third camp in seven days to support other defensive linemen and continue to learn from Larry Johnson.

Watkins Jr. wasn’t the only big 2025 recruit on campus Tuesday. Safety in Florida DJ Picket, who received an OSU offer in late April, was also in Columbus to work on his craft. Pickett’s offer sheet is certainly impressive, with more than 35 Division I offers already to his name entering his second year. He showed why colleges strongly believe in his one-on-one abilities, undermining a route and picking a pass.

OSU also pitched another top safety on Tuesday in a four-star prospect from Texas. Maurice Williams, a top 50 player of the 2024 cycle. Williams has shown impressive quickness in defensive back drills, but has yet to receive an offer from the Buckeyes. Interesting fact: Despite his Texas roots, Williams said he loves the snow and prefers going to school somewhere up north.

One of Ohio’s fastest quarterbacks in the 2025 class turned heads at OSU camp on Tuesday. Tavian St. Clair, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound quarterback from Bellefontaine in 2025, showed off a strong arm in the afternoon throwing session. St. Clair has offers from Tennessee, Iowa State, Pittsburgh and Central Michigan and could be a name to keep an eye on for the future.

Several offensive linemen who could also become Ohio State targets participated in Tuesday’s camp, including the Columbus product Jordan Room, who camped out with the Buckeyes for a second straight day. The 2023, 6-foot-8, 340-pound offensive tackle will camp again with Ohio State next week in hopes of securing an offer from the Buckeyes.

Indiana 2024 Three-Star Hopeful Ransom McDermott it certainly looks like he has the frame to play collegiate offensive tackle at 6-foot-7 and 270 pounds. But McDermott acknowledged that he currently plays at the near end of his high school, so mixing in to tackle will be a bit of a transition. He will continue to work on his trade in hopes of securing an OSU offer even though none came on Tuesday.

State Interior Offensive Lineman Jacques Cook worked with OSU on Tuesday not necessarily expecting an offer but hoping to improve his technique in the drills. During the two-and-a-half-hour morning session, Cook believes he has achieved his goal. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound 2025 prospect said he had a successful first day of camp and will look to build on that performance when he returns to Columbus for a second camp on June 21.

Laurinaitis was a three-time first-team All-American during his four-year career with the Scarlet and Gray, a consensus All-American in 2006 and 2008 and a unanimous selection in 2007.

During his time with the Buckeyes, Scarlet and Gray played in consecutive National Championship games and won four consecutive Big Ten titles. Laurenite was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2018.

Ward played for Ohio State in the mid-1970s and was a two-time All-American. He was named a consensus All-American in 1976 and a unanimous All-American the following season, in addition to earning three first-team All-Big Ten selections. Ward helped the Buckeyes win at least a share of four conference titles, including blocking Griffin in his second season of the Heisman Trophy in 1975. He was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1989
