How Ohio State football’s 2020 and 2021 recruits who attended the Michigan State game reacted to their visit

Cleveland 2 months ago

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio State football team won its second of three straight night games in a 34-10 win over Michigan State.

The game was also a part of the Buckeyes’ second major recruiting weekend this year with three players on official visits and a multitude of other 2020 and 2021 recruits in attendance as well.

Recruits got to witness Ohio State pull out its black jerseys for the third time ever and the second time for a primetime win. Most of which approved of the alternate uniforms.

“Those are sweet,” five-star 2021 commit Jack Sawyer of Pickerington North (Ohio) High school told cleveland.com. “I think it’s a great idea for a big game. Obviously, it was a blackout, so having everybody get behind that theme and packing The Shoe in all black is pretty sweet.”

Ohio State head coach Ryan Day stated that he thought his second major recruiting weekend as a head coach was a success.

“That’s why you work so many hours, and you have people who do a great job within the staff here,” Day said. “There was a lot going on here. I don’t know how many guys we had here, but we had a ridiculous amount of people that were here. I thought Mark (Pantoni) and everybody on his staff did a great job organizing all of that and handling it well. Recruits and their families understand that on game day, you’re not going to get as much time face-to-face with the coaches. They’re coming for the atmosphere, and they understand that. All of the feedback we got was that it was a home run.”

Day now heads into his first off week as a head coach giving him and his staff a chance to cement the rest of the 2020 class while getting out ahead in the 2021 class. Many of those targets were in town for the game against the Spartans. Now coaches will busy traveling to those same players this week.

Here’s a look at how some Ohio State’s targets reacted to the primetime win:

Tyler Baron, Knoxville Catholic (Tenn.) High School

Julian Fleming, Southern Columbia (Pa.) High School

Paris Johnson Jr. of Princeton (Ohio) High School with Ohio State legend Orlando Pace

Lejond Cavazos, IMG Academy (Fla.)
