Luke Wypler Is a Future NFL Prospect

LukeWypler

It did not take me a long time to understand who Luke Wypler was. At first, I was frustrated because I couldn’t find much information on the number one prospect at center for the class of 2020. I dug deeper and found out Luke worked hard as hell to get the recruitment process done early. He didn’t want to focus too much on the recruitment process because it would take him away from his current goal at the time: winning a state championship for St. Joseph Regional. They would go on to win the state championship because of Luke and his team’s nonstop attitude.

Committing To The University

Many prospects have backed away from Ohio State due to the sudden retirement of legendary Head Coach Urban Myer. Although Luke has been quiet in his recruitment process, he did open up about this topic. It was never his plan to commit to a coach, he felt the need to commit to a university. Luke was able to visit the school early this year, nearly a full year after his verbal commitment. This solidified Luke’s desire to join the team and build his credit as a football player. Jeff Hafley and Greg Studrawa recruited his for Ryan Day's 2020 class.

What Luke Wypler Was Looking For

Ohio State breeds NFL prospects, and that is exactly what Luke wants, along with the chance to join Fisher’s School of Business. The academics and culture of Ohio State will fit Luke well, and give him a chance to grow as both a man and a player.

What Luke Wypler Has to Offer

After observing his highlights, it was clear that he was a gamechanger. His speed and athleticism can change the course of a play, and he puts defensive ends on the tackles on the ground for fun. Most offensive lineman of the past have simply been giant bodies that can out muscle sneaky defensive ends and charging linebackers. The game is changing, and Luke is a perfect fit for this new breed of offensive linemen. Luke is fast and strong, he is built for quickness and keeping up with a fast-paced level of college. Luke has a rare ability that most offensive lineman, he moves at angles and this creates the leverage he needs for the few defensive linemen that are stronger than him. This ability to create angles originated from his time as an all-state wrestler.

Tight End Joe Royer as a Buckeye in the Class of 2020

JoeRoyer

Joe Royer is a three-star tight end recruited by the Ohio State Buckeyes for the 2020 season. He's a senior at Elder High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. Royer is tall and in great shape, at 6'5" 225 pounds. The young man is among the slew of players joining Ohio State from schools in the Cincinnati region, among them offensive lineman Paris Johnson, defensive tackle Darrion Henry, and offensive tackle Jakob James. Royer is the first tight end to commit to Ohio state for the 2020 season.

Joe took to Twitter to announce his commitment: "I'm staying home, committed!!" He's clearly proud and excited to be part of Buckeye football, and who wouldn't be?

On June 6, Royer participated in OSU's first one-day camp, and they were so impressed with him that he received an offer right there. Remarkably, after the offer and his strong performance at the camp, Royer's ranking jumped 366 points to No. 507 overall in 247Sports ratings. He was also ranked as No. 200 in the 2020 class and the No. 3 tight end. He clocked a 4.81 40-yard dash time, which would get any recruiter's attention, and it did for OSU offensive coordinator and tight end coach Kevin Wilson. Talk about performing when it counts.

As far as stats, Royer had 32 receptions for 617 yards, scoring 5 touchdowns in the 2018 season with the Elder High Panthers, who went 8-5.

Royer officially visited Ohio State on June 21, and committed about one week later.

What Options Did Royer Have to Consider Other Than Ohio State?

Reportedly, Joe Royer received over 20 offers, and among them were Michigan, Penn State, and Wisconsin. Ohio State clearly had a lot of competition to pick up Royer, and that says a lot about both him and OSU's recruiting efforts.

Why the Ohio State Buckeye?

Obviously he had plenty of options, but Ohio State came out on top for him. Joe seemed very pleased to be staying in-state and be a part of Buckeye football, and that's no surprise. Likely the stream of other players committing to Ohio State made the decision even more appealing for him. Royer is also teammates with Jakob James, an offensive tackle for Ohio State whom he visited with during OSU's spring practice in March this year. Undoubtedly James did his part to convince him to join the crew.

Everything you need to know about Eugene Brown III

EugeneBrownIII

Latest news on Eugene Brown III

If you follow college basketball, or are a fan of the Buckeyes, you'll want to know exactly who Eugene Brown III is. Eugene Brown is a shooting guard, who played excellent high school basketball in Decatur Georgia. Brown committed to Ohio State on September 16th, after reviewing offers from other schools, and we'll show you exactly why Ohio State was so keen on having him for their 2020 draft class.

Player profile Eugene Brown


Eugene Brown is a great addition to the Ohio State Buckeyes, and they sought him out due to his size and skill at his position. Eugene Brown weighs in at 185 pounds, and stands tall at 6-foot-6. His small frame, and large height, allow him to be incredibly mobile on the basketball court. This is one of the main reasons he had so much success in high school, and why he'll likely have success at the college level as well.


Brown was so good in his home state, that he ranked number 6 overall. On Top of that, Brown ranked at a solid 112 in his overall class across the country. His athleticism, and build, have allowed him to play excellent basketball and earn him a 4 star rating.

Why he is a great addition to the Buckeyes


The Buckeyes were so interested in Brown, because he will make an instant impact on their roster. Brown is known for his shooting talents, so he'll be able to make the shots he needs to, and he is also great on defense. This is important, because it gives the Buckeyes a player that can be effective on both sides of the court. Brown will likely add the versatility that the Buckeyes need this upcoming season, and will play an important role scoring at the 2-3 location.

Mookie Cooper as a College Football Prospect

Mookie Cooper


Now that his playing days at Trinity Catholic High School in St. Louis are almost over, wide receiver Mookie Cooper can look back on them with fondness. He made a lot of friends and he had a lot of good times. For it was there that early on in his sophomore year he established himself as a blue-chip star. Yes, Mookie might not even be 6 feet tall, but what he lacks in height he makes up for in sheer speed. That sheer raw talent is one of the main reasons that he was already getting second looks from colleges even when he was just a sophomore. Either way you look at it, the kid has talent. What do we know about him as a college football prospect? Who was looking at him closer? Who did he finally commit to? These are all questions that deserve an answer.


Just who was vying for Mookie Cooper's attention?


Early on, there were a lot of schools that were vying for this rising star's attention. Colleges such as LSU, Tennessee, Miami, Oklahoma, and Texas were all on the phone trying to get him to commit to their program. This doesn't count him being a strong consideration for Illinois, simply because of the fact that his lifelong high school coach and mentor Cory Patterson is now the tight ends coach with that program. At first, Mookie Cooper thought the process was very exciting. He remembers how it felt to be seriously looked at by all of these different programs in his sophomore year. However, as he got older, he realized that with his huge amount of talent there came a lot of responsibility attached. He knew that when it came time to commit he would have to carefully consider his choice and what he was looking for in a program. Who did he ultimately decide to go with?

How long and hard was the college recruitment road for Mookie Cooper?


The answer to that question is that is was very hard. However, it was through this process that Cooper demonstrated that he is not just a solid athlete on the field but also a great all-around mind that is wise beyond his years. Interestingly enough, Cooper did not go with the first program he committed to. He originally was going to go with the Texas Longhorns, but he later made the hard decision to de-commit. There were a lot of factors that went into this decision, but Cooper says he still has a lot of respect for what the Texas Longhorns program represents.

QB Gunnar Hoak Coming Home to Columbus

Gunarhook

Gunnar Hoak was dual sports player at Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio, playing baseball in addition to football. He led his high school as a quarterback, to the Division I Ohio state playoffs. Hoak has graded a 3-star prospect and saw scholarship offers from Toledo, Bowling Green, and Buffalo. After such accolades as being named Offensive Player of the Year for Ohio's Central District in 2014 and throwing for 4,000 plus yards with 44 touchdowns and just nine interceptions his junior and senior season, he was ranked as the number 40 overall pro-style quarterback in the nation for the class of 2016. Hoak eventually chose the University of Kentucky, the only Power 5 school to offer him a scholarship, though other programs like Toledo, Buffalo, and Bowling Green did make offers.

Hoak at Kentucky

At Kentucky Hoak was red-shirted his freshman year in 2016. Stephen Johnson was the QB for 2017 with Hoak third on the depth chart. Drew Barker was the backup, but in 2018 Barker gave up his final year of eligibility and Johnson graduated. This left Hoak in a battle with Terry Wilson for the QB job at Kentucky. Wilson was named the starter and Hoak saw little action during his redshirt sophomore season – throwing just 26 passes for Kentucky.

This lack of playing time led Hoak to enter the NCAA's transfer portal in mid-April. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was hoping Hoak would remain at Kentucky, but Hoak announced the weekend after Easter that he was transferring to Ohio State.

Pro-Style Quarterbacks

Urban Meyer leaving the Ohio State played a role in Hoak's decision to choose Ohio State. Under Meyer, the Buckeyes had primarily recruited dual-threat quarterbacks. But new head coach Ryan Day is bringing a pro-style passing attack to Columbus.

Given Hoak's pro-style and the Buckeye's new change in offensive philosophy both parties are receiving a benefit. Ohio State saw quarterback Matthew Baldwin leave the program and this created an immediate need for a quarterback. Hoak met with Ohio State coaching staff just three days after entering the transfer portal.

Matthew Baldwin On Leaving Ohio State

MatthewBaldwin

Matthew Baldwin is a gradually rising football star. He was raised in Texas by his parents, Michael and Mindy Baldwin. He was one of the ten from a 2018 recruiting class to join Ohio State in January 2018. His stay at Ohio State was a short one after he choose to transfer.

Matthew says the main reason for the transfer is due to home sickness. His transfer from Ohio comes after him nursing a knee injury from the 2017 Texas state playoffs.

Ryan Day, a quarterbacks coach played a vital role for Matthew to join Ohio State. He convinced Urban Meyer, then Ohio State head coach, to bring Matthew into the Buckeyes team. Meyer was impressed with Matthew after watching a film of him playing. He was struck by Matthew’s loyalty to his high school program at Lake Travis High School.

Later when Ohio State announced the retirement for Urban Meyer as the head coach, Ryan Day was made the head coach full time.Ryan runs the quarterbacks as a guru. He was once a quarterback too. He has played an integral part in molding Matthew and his other playmates like J.T Barrett and Dwayne Haskins, whom he had inherited form the former recruiting class of 2017.

Ryan nurtured Dwayne so vigorously that he went on to lead a record breaking Ohio State offense. Matthew watched him keenly learning lots from him. He saw Dwayne as someone he could emulate.

Ryan Day had the same expectations on Matthew, expecting better from him. Matthew took up the challenge and he was worked real hard.

When star Dwayne Haskins left the Ohio State team to contest for the 2019 NFL draft. Dwayne had been ranked as the top quarterback drafted for 2019 NFL and speculated to be 6th overall by the New York Giants. Dwayne had worked hard to take after J.T Barrett.
