Signing Day is right around the corner and here at The Buckeye Battle Cry Radio Hour, we bring you the best content we can to get you prepared for what could go down on Wednesday when members of the Class of 2015 fax in their letters of intent to various schools across the country to play football for those coaches and universities.
Ohio State is expected to finish the day with the highest rated class in the Big Ten and a top ten group of recruits across that national spectrum.
- The 2015 class as a whole and how they can provide depth despite heading to a National Championship team that is loaded at nearly every position
- Whether or not Cass Tech (MI) running back Mike Weber will stay an Ohio State commit despite a late surge from Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh
- Where Torrance Gibson fits in this class and how high he ranks among athletes across the country and quarterback and at Wide Receiver
- Who the “Sleeper” of this class is that could help Urban Meyer and company right away during the 2015 campaign
- The development of the coaching staff on the recruiting scene and how Kerry Coombs has carved a recruiting road into the state of Michigan
- How Ed Warinner has impressed recruits and their families with his ability to turn recruits into NFL lineman
- The likelihood of Porter Gustin signing on the dotted line and faxing over his letter of Intent to Ohio State
- If there could be a quarterback logjam down the road
- Who Jeremy’s favorite recruits are that decided to go elsewhere for their education and to play football
Plus, our own MaliBuckeye stops by to talk about the other side of recruiting and what role education and development have in the selections that young men will be making tomorrow.
