sad news ;ohio state best player is living the team group

Spring ball is here! Tuesday being the official start of spring practice, the Buckeyes are back on the field prepping for the 2024 campaign, which could be a special one. One of the more exciting off-seasons in Ohio State’s recent history, the staff has crushed it from a personnel standpoint.

Specifically speaking, the recruiting wins for the Buckeyes over the last several weeks have been off the charts, and it’s been from both realms of portal targets and high school prospects. While the goal of this spring is to develop and get better for the upcoming season, the priority of recruiting is still going to be just as present as it has been.

In this case, we look at the Buckeyes, not from a sense of the current roster, but who could be next in the 2025 class to pull the trigger on a commitment to one of the best classes in the country early on.

Off the bat, there are plenty of top national recruits the Buckeyes are in a great position to land on both sides of the ball, so regardless of who is next on the agenda, Ohio State will be landing an elite talent. Offensively, my prediction unless something changes is tight end target Nate Roberts.

The effort alone…

Far and away the player the staff has the highest on their board at the spot, Roberts and his relationship with the Buckeyes, and position coach specifically Keenan Bailey, is as strong as it gets. Putting the full-court press on him for months now, Bailey has done a phenomenal job at showing him he’s the guy they want in 2025. Odds are it’s the relationship aspect that sticks out the most these days when it comes to recruiting, and Ohio State clearly has that here.

With how many visits Bailey has made to see Roberts in Oklahoma, that alone would be enough evidence, but the 6-foot-4 tight end has also made the trek to Columbus as well, proving his own interest in all that Ohio State has to offer. Bailey and Roberts communicate constantly, and when you become that close to a position coach, it’s easy to see why the Buckeyes are so highly regarded in his top list of schools.
