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.

What Chris Olave's Commitment Means For The Buckeyes

ChrisOlave2

Similar in body type, playing style and even background, I have to say that Chris Olave reminds me of a younger Devin Smith. That may seem like a bit of overkill for some Ohio State fans, I get it, but Chris Olave will have to earn that comparison and I believe him to be up to the task.

The comparison comes based mostly on speed. As you know, Smith was not only a state-champion long-jumper but also a star on the track, making him a real crowd favorite. Olave is equally strong in track and field although he did not play football his junior year due to transfer rules. Despite that, he still earned several offers based on his basketball and track efforts... along with word of mouth. It was not until October that Ohio State offered Olave a contract after seeing him play in his first handful of senior season games.

WR Kamryn Babb Committed to Ohio State

KamrynBabb

Once again proving why he is one of the best coaches in the nation right now, if not of all time, Urban Meyer got another huge boost when Kamryn Babb committed to Ohio State. This news came in on Tuesday after Babb made an official announcement during a video he posted on Twitter.

Babb was in an interview saying that Coach Meyer's dedication to him was a big part of his decision to commit. This was in reference to his season-ending knee injury last season. This along with what he stated was a "family environment" were major factors in his decision.

It is clear that this young man is especially excited to play for Coach Meyer and receivers coach Zach Smith. He should help solidify the receiving corps for the next few years. The four star ranked prospect even turned down scholarships from other big name schools like Michigan, Notre Dame, Missouri, UCLA, and USC.

Tyjon_Lindsey

Tyjon Lindsey, the 2017 Five Star Wide Receiver From Las Vegas, NV, Joins Ohio State

Only days after reports that he intended to return to Las Vegas to partner with quarterback Tate Martell, Tyjon Lindsey has joined Ohio State. The 180 pound, five foot nine, five star wide receiver went public with his decision on Monday, in a video published on his Twitter account.

Over the past few months, things have gravitated towards Ohio State, however this was not always true with regards to Lindsey's enrolment. Nebraska --- headed by Keith Williams --- spent a lot of time trying to court the country's fifth best receiver, with numerous journeys to Nevada starting as far back as the Spring.

Nevada Quarterback Tate Martell Joins the Ohio State Buckeyes

TateMartell

Ohio State acquired a commitment from Tate Martell for Signal Calling Duties in 2017

When the best dual threat quarterback in America, Tate Martell from Nevada, didn't commit to Texas A&M in May, many believed he would take his time to consider his options.

That appeared to be the idea, because Martell kept telling journalists that he intended to make many official visits, prior to deciding his path later in the autumn and registering early at his chosen school.

However, during the past fourteen days, Martell began to narrow his list down, with one option - Ohio State - constantly in his thoughts ever since he visited Columbus in March, when both he and his father were impressed.

Ohio State Enters The Radar Of Texas Standouts

Jeffrey Okudah

A couple of prospects from Longhorn State traveled to Columbus during the weekend. This gave them the opportunity to check out the campus in person. While there, they mingled with the coaching team of Ohio State and Urban Meyer. There's a good chance that Jeffrey Okudah and Baron Browning, five star recruits from the 2017 class, will have been impressed by what they saw in Capital City.

If recruitment is about forming strong relationships, this is precisely what the Buckeyes have attempted to do with the duo from Texas. Holding the OSU in high esteem during their weekend meeting, it was the 195 pound, six foot one inch standout from South Grand Prairie High, Okudah's second visit to OSU. Browning, on the other hand, was making the journey north for the first time.

Both prospects have had more than thirty scholarship offers each. Stanford and Alabama - to name just a few - are in the running for Okudah, however some insiders think that he will wind up opting for Ohio State ultimately.

Darrell Simpson Receives Offer To Join Ohio State

Darrell Simpson

Ohio State's recruitment drive has ventured into the class of 2018, and nothing can be ruled out because many of the country's top prospects are already tempted to join.

The Buckeyes, headed by Urban Meyer, do not mess around as far as recruitment goes. They have a national reputation as an elite program with regards to football and more. Although most media coverage has focused on the class of 2017, recently 2018 has witnessed a boost in exposure, because the Buckeyes have made offers to lots of promising new talent from the class of 2018. Suffice to say, Meyer has recruited across the country in the short time he's been with Ohio State, and 2018 will follow suit as numerous four star and five star prospects will choose to sign with the Buckeyes.

All-Purpose Back JK Dobbins And Buckeye Football

JK Dobbins

Most people are surprised that JK Dobbins, an all-purpose back from La Grange, TX, is signing up for Ohio State Buckeyes.

Many people expected the high school player to sign up for either Texas Longhorns or Oklahoma Sooners, but the 200 pound 5'10 player had other thoughts. Although signing up for Ohio Buckeyes comes as a surprise, JK Dobbins had earlier on hinted about making an early move. The turn of events was unlikely as the head coach had not approached him and the player has not even traveled to Columbus Ohio since his last trip in May last Year.
