Things started off normally on this week’s episode, as the guys started off the podcast discussing the latest in Ohio State recruiting. They talk about the latest surrounding J.T. Tuimoloau and how we should handle #JTTWatch, as well as a slew of new Crystal Ball predictions for yet another quality defensive lineman in the 2022 class. They then pivoted to to basketball, where they took a look at some of the biggest matchups in this year’s Big Ten/ACC Challenge and ponder the futures of E.J. Liddell and Duane Washington Jr.

That is when everything went awry, as shortly thereafter news broke that Washington would be remaining in the NBA Draft and not returning to Ohio State. The guys react to the news as it happened, and discuss how this will impact both the Buckeyes and the future of Washington. As if that wasn’t enough, news broke at nearly the identical moment that five-star 2023 Ohio native defensive end Brenan Vernon has committed to Notre Dame. A big blow for Ohio State, Vernon’s decision came as a bit of a surprise.

Hangout in the Holy Land will be dropping every Wednesday throughout the offseason, and will return to its usual twice-a-week schedule once the regular season gets underway. Be sure to download and listen in wherever you get your podcasts, and leave us a review on Apple to let us know your thoughts and how we can make things even better!

You can also follow us on Twitter @HolyLandPod, as we’ll be getting that account fired back up with the new season of the show. If there’s anything you’d like us to talk about on the show, @ us and let us know!

As always, Go Bucks.
