Podcast: Breaking down the BOOMing Fourth of July recruiting weekend for Ohio State

Could there be more fireworks coming soon for the Buckeyes?

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

On the State Secrets recruiting episodes of the Land-Grant Holy Land podcast, one of our recruiting experts, Patrick Mayhorn, tries to educate our resident “old,” Matt Tamanini, about Ohio State Buckeyes’ recruiting.

On today’s episode, Matt and Patrick discuss the explosion of commitments that the Buckeyes have had in the last three weeks, with the 2020 class picking up seven major commitments since the last SS podcast. They also discuss a pair of LSU commits who might be looking elsewhere, and potentially towards Columbus.

Also, they talk about why a four-star Ohio running back decided to take his talents to Tempe to play for Herm Edwards (hint, OSU didn’t want him to play running back); and finally, Patrick previews who might be behind the next set of BOOMs for the Buckeyes.

On this episode:

1) Commitment recap: Clark Phillips III, Darrion Henry, Cody Simon, Cameron Martinez, Josh Fryar, Joe Royer, and Mitchell Melton.

2) What’s the deal with Elias Ricks and Rakim Jarrett?

3) Why did DeaMonte Trayanum pick Arizona State?

4) Commitment watch: Kourt Williams, Jacolbe Cowan, Lathan Ransom, Bijan Robinson, Mookie Cooper, and Jaylan Knighton.
