18.Oct.2013 Beavs’ Recruiting Trending Down
Currently OSU has 9 two star commits.
The year prior, they had 3. The year before that, 5.
You have to go back to 2011 to find a similar number. They had eight, and included low performers such as Peter Ashton, Elisina Aluesi, Blake Harrah, Rudolph Fifita, Na’Alli Robbins, Larry Scott, and the one serviceable player, Kellen Clute. Seems stars DO matter, to an extent, except for the clear misses (e.g. James Rodgers).
On the flipside, they have no 4+ star recruits committed at this point, something that has not happened since 2003.
Of the 17 current commits, only 3 hold a national ranking.

I’ve been busy with life and have yet to watch the film on these guys, but purely based on the numbers, I’d say this is a step backward. I plan to watch film over the next few weeks.
