To a certain extent it's true that people have been hoping it would be true for a long time, but for a long time there was a lot of frustration here that the recruiting classes just didn't seem to improve. In the early years, from 2005-2010, most classes had very few early commitments, and were filled mostly in December and January, and mostly from players with no other offers. Some unknown players were good, but some were not.

From 2011-16 there were more early commits, and that got us excited, but in the end, did that make the classes better? If you look at National Rankings, no, nothing changed. From 2005-2019 Ohio's class ranking has averaged 103 in the country, and for the last five years it's about the same, though I suppose 103 of 130 is better than 103 of 120.

On a different measure, one that I look at, there is a change, that being how many competing offers the players had.
From 2005-10: average was .9 other FBS offers
From 2011-16: average was 2.5 other FBS offers
From 2017-19: average was 4.2 other FBS offers

From 2005-10, Ohio relied on finding diamonds in the rough, good players like Lavon Brazill and Travis Carrie, who had no other offers. The last few years they are still trying to find those in players like Julian Ross and Hagan Meservy, but are also getting players with multiple competing offers, guys like Denzel Daxon in last year's class and Mency in this year's class.

So, for a long time, people hoped that Ohio's recruiting was finally improving, but were frustrated because things stayed more or less the same. In recent years something has definitely changed. Will that produce different results on the field? This year we will see a number of players from the 2017-19 recruiting classes on the field, so it won't be long before we know if recruiting really is improving.

I think that this is an interesting analysis, L.C. My money is on the side that says we will see better performance on the field. In fact, I think we've already seen it. Last year was kind of a strange year. We were really in every game, except the UVA contest, and our performance in that game may have been affected by the sudden change of venue. With just a few breaks, we easily could have been 11-1 in the regular season. The UC game where we were within one foot of scoring the potential winning TD in the waning seconds of the game is a good example. Though the final record was a little disappointing, I think one could easily see how much better the team was last year compared to most of Frank's teams at OHIO.

This seems to be the biggest recruiting change. In the past it was good athletes who for the most part were projects with potential. Then the diamond in the rough years with the above mentioned players like Ross and Meservey. With players like Daxon and Mency it looks like we may have turned the corner into the diamond stage. I might add that QB CJ Harris also made my jaw drop.

I would add that some of the earlier highly rated classes included players who ended up being no-shows, and who ended up elsewhere or nowhere, such as Kenny Ashley 2010, Trae Clark 2012, Michael Roberts 2012, Chris Murray 2012, Tate Leavitt 2013, Deontai Williams 2015, Jeff Christian 2015, Demetrius Colbert 2015, London Cloud 2015. Besides having more offers, the last few classes have also had almost everyone who signed end up on the roster. This year we are still missing a couple, but hopefully they, too, will eventually show up on the roster.

On paper, the 2016-present classes are significantly different. I'm looking forward to the next few years, for sure.

Ohio recruiting is improving it seems. Yet the MAC overall is rising also. Looking just at 2020 QBs Ohio's Harris is rated at 0.7998, NIU's Fletcher is at 0.8538, WMU's Salopek is at 0.8477, Toledo's Hall is at 0.8499, Eastern's May is at 0.8199, Central's Pape is at 0.7998, Bowling Green's Keller is 0.8376 & Melton at 0.8466. As Ohio's big name recruits have more offers/stars it will keep pace with other top programs. I expect Ohio's difference makers will continue to come from those who arrive with no other or few other offers who the coaches find through their own hard work and networking. With Harris I have the same feeling as when Windham and Duckworth committed, so, I guess cautious optimism.

Transfer Portal shows QB transfers into MAC schools; McDonald 0.8222 BC to Bowling Green, Bowers 0.8696 Cal to NI, Dormady 0.9020 Houston to Central Michigan.

Seems like a serious football player and a great addition. What I hope doesn't get lost in all of that is how truly perfect his name is for toga parties.

I suppose we have different definitions of "really good". For example, consistently winning divisional and conference titles, playing in high profile bowl games, college football playoffs, etc.

There is really good and there is unrealistic really good. What youre describing? A handful of P5 programs have achieved that status. I would label that elite. Id call our last four seasons of MAC play really good.

Ohio Football is now a preferred destination" and not just another option or a last resort destination for recruits and that by itself changes the game imo.

Between CJ Harris and Rourke II Ohio should be in really good shape...And I wouldnt count out Joe Mischler-he could play an important role before he is done...

I would argue Ohios definitely a better program AT THE MOMENT than Illinois is, and its not even close. Illinois has been terrible for awhile; in the meantime Ohio, playing on national TV as the only game on TV at the time, has just won 2 bowl games by a combined score of 68-6. Talk about positive visibility and publicity. Its taken me some time to come to the realization that maybe, just maybe, those wins are netting Ohio some very positive results when it comes to recruiting. Illinois has better facilities (I assume) and is a much bigger conference, but if results on the field matter more, then Ohio has it over the Illini.

Ohio is definitely playing with some swagger, too. When the stepped on the field in those bowl games, they weren't playing to keep it close, and they weren't playing to win a close one, they were playing to kick some butt. That swagger attracts more players with attitude.

Also, I believe we are 3-2 against them all-time; including the last game in 2006, a 20-17 victory. I think that should be worth something! ; )
