Ohio State’s top 2022 recruiting targets as the Buckeyes look to finish class amid tight numbers and possible staff changes – The Athletic

Ryan Day began his enlistment path this week with his program in Ohio at a slight inflection point. Part of his fan base wants a scorched earth, no-stone approach to reshaping things in Columbus. This is life when you lose to Michigan for the first time in a decade and lose your chance to compete for a national championship in the process.

The loss to the Wolverines makes the day 23-1 in the Big Ten games. He’s had two conference championships and two playoffs. It probably won’t rip the thing down to the buttons. It also seems unlikely that he will sit idly by, which could lead to some difficult conversations over the next few weeks leading up to the start of the early signing period on December 15. The Buckeyes is still targeting – likely to have a different coach position at OSU than the one he envisioned when the hiring process began.

Then again, the nature of the training business is so crazy right now that guys are so used to the moving parts. What matters is stability at the top.

“Ultimately, it’s down to the head coach and the culture that is instilled here,” Day said. “What is the vision? Somewhere along the line, coaches come and go. When that happens, who is the coach and what will the culture be? This will remain consistent. I just think that is important in hiring.”

Not every coach comes close to recruiting the same. Some step back through the process and then appear closer when it’s time to put pen to paper, allowing their assistants to do most, if not all, of the essential work. Today it seems that the most involved in all stages of the process.
