Explain. 

I was asking if the OWH is even trying with this list of the top 50 players on the team.  I just opened the link again and read "top 50 players you need to know".  That's a bit different than the top 50 on the team I suppose.  My comment was with the first interpretation, and was directed to him bring ranked in the top 30 players on the team with having just arrived, which I think is silly.   He's a name to know I suppose even though DB is one of the deeper groups in the team. He's probably only on the 4 deep at this point, maybe higher come September but isn't right now.

You don’t think a player transferring in can be a top 30 player?

Theoretically a player could be yes, but they all aren't created equally and we're not talking about potential here but where they stand today.  Tyreke shouldn't when he 1. Got here 3 weeks ago and 2. Never even sniffed the field for more than a handful of snaps in 3 years at his prior school. If that particular player is a top 30 player on this roster, at this very moment, then we will struggle to win 6 games in 2021.

 

Could he turn into a starter? Of course but I was taking the list as a snapshot of right now.

Should be higher. He has the size, attitude and lateral quickness we need. If he can improve his conditioning- could have a pretty big impact in the running back room. 

good get

How many players on Nebraska's roster would be on Ohio State's 2 deep made up of 4 and 5 star players? My guess is not many.

I agree, he wasn't on their 2 deep either, hence the transfer.  What are you getting at?  He COULD be a starter right now but why are folks assuming he is a top 30 player before he even practices? If you have something I am missing, some actual game film or something, I will believe you. It's just odd we assume he's already better than what we have. Remember Nadab Joseph? Same story, it takes some time almost always.

 

I get it, these articles are designed to elicit clicks and reactions. They succeeded.

All the article says is that he'll probably carve out a roll on special teams and challenge to start in 2022. Where would you have ranked him?

I was thinking off the 2 deep to start, ST contributor just like you said. Maybe upper 40s.

He’s #30. Last I remember, there are 22 starters plus specialists.  Nobody is saying he’s better that what we have….especially the starters.
