If you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, Ohio State recruiting is pretty hot in the streets these days. With the NCAA dead period finally coming to an end at the start of this month, the Buckeyes have wasted no time in bringing the nation’s top talents to Columbus, and have already secured their first commitment in June in high four-star wide receiver Kaleb Brown — which, unfortunately, happened after the recording of this podcast.

While we’ve already discussed the specifics of this past weekend on Monday’s episode of The Dotted Line, Gene and George take a look at Ohio State’s current recruiting tactics through the lens of where the team needs to improve. After an odd 2020 season, which position groups are the strongest for the Buckeyes and which need to see the greatest influx of talent, and how is Ryan Day and the rest of the staff addressing those needs in who they are recruiting from the 2021 commits all the way through some of their 2023 targets?

The guys break down some of the biggest names Ohio State has landed over this period of time and some of the most important prospects they are attempting to snag moving forward. They also discuss the impact of the new transfer rules and how that could potentially play an impact on both the Buckeyes’ recruiting plans and how they construct their roster as we embark on what has become college football free agency.

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.
