Putting on the line ... and the linebackers

Ohio State has an excellent roster overall entering the 2022 season. However, there are some possible question marks, such as depth on the offensive line, and the overall talent at linebacker. The Buckeyes' season could rest on how the O-line and LBs play. The good news for OSU is there is reason for optimism regarding both units, and that's one of the many things Dave Biddle discusses on today's show. Specifically, how does the second-team offensive line look and could any of those guys be good starters if one of the current starters goes down with an injury? At linebacker, defensive coordinator Jim Knowles said on Tuesday that fourth-year juniors Steele Chambers and Tommy Eichenberg have "solidified things at linebacker" for the Buckeyes. He also had nice things to say about Cody Simon, Teradja Mitchell, Chip Trayanum and C.J. Hicks. One thing that is not being talked about enough is OSU's lack of depth at cornerback. They only have six scholarship corners on the roster (not counting kicker/corner Jake Seibert) and Knowles revealed on Tuesday that the Buckeyes are a bit banged up at the position. One of the players who was working on the side was sophomore Jordan Hancock, who has a lot of buzz as a possible breakout player for OSU this year. True freshman Jyaire Brown is having a very good camp thus far and lost his black stripe on Tuesday. He will definitely play this season, the only question is how much. It could be more than anyone expected. To add some depth at cornerback, safeties Jantzen Dunn and Cameron Martinez repped at corner on Tuesday. So, that helps mitigate the situation. The Buckeyes have plenty of depth at safety, just like they do at linebacker and on the defensive line. All of that and more is coming your way on the Wednesday 5ish.

Florida gonna Florida | 247Sports expert Ivins on Ohio State in Sunshine State

Ohio State has five Class of 2023 commitments from Florida ... currently. In the Class of 2024, the Buckeyes have offered 19 Floridians - most of any state (just 5 in Ohio). But we all know Florida is its own animal when it comes to recruiting. Well, we brought in the best today - 247Sports Southeast Recruiting Analyst Andrew Ivins - to dive deep on all things Florida recruiting. The Fort Lauderdale-based info machine knows these recruits better than anyone in the business, which is readily apparent. We hit all the names - Dijon Johnson, Carnell Tate, Brandon Inniss, Bryson Rodgers, Cedrick Hawkins, Mark Fletcher, Jeremiah Smith, Stacy Gage, Charles Lester, JoJo Trader and we even delved into some Georgia standouts (Jelani Thurman and Kayin Lee). Ivins also waxes poetic on why Florida recruits are different from all the others and it's not the last visit but the last commitment you want.  Spend 5ish with us this a.m., 'Nutters!

Back to the Glenville pipeline | Dijon back in the fold? | Vibes from first week of practice

For the first time since Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State has landed a Cleveland Glenville prospect. Four-star linebacker Arvell Reese selected the Buckeyes over the weekend, and Steve Helwagen joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus: * Is 4-star cornerback Dijon Johnson going to recommit to Ohio State? There is some smoke that it could happen, including from heavy hitters such as the Dean (Bill Kurelic) and the Fong (Steve Wiltfong). * What are our main takeaways from the first week of preseason camp for OSU? Who will be the top linebackers for the Buckeyes? * Chris Holtmann is crushing it on the recruiting trail. On Sunday, the Buckeyes landed 4-star forward Scotty Middleton, a few days after sealing a commitment from 4-star forward Devin Royal. The Buckeyes now have the No. 3 class in the country for 2023, a year after signing the No. 8 class in the land. The only two programs ahead of Ohio State in the 2023 class? Duke and Kentucky. Pretty good company to be in. All of that and much more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish.

The road to L.A. begins tomorrow | How does '22 roster stack up with some of the best at OSU?

Many are predicting a national championship season for Ohio State, or at least a season where the Buckeyes will be one of the few teams in the hunt. This season's national championship game will be held at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and the road to the title game begins on Thursday for the Buckeyes as they kick off preseason camp. * How does the 2022 roster stack up against some of the really good rosters we have seen at OSU over the last decade or so? We do an extremely deep dive into that subject. * What will be the two-deep on the offensive line? * What will be Cody Simon's role? * Switching to recruiting, what is the latest with 4-star 2023 linebacker Arvell Reese? Will the Buckeyes go back to their old Glenville pipeline to fill an important need in their class? Does Reese definitely want to be a Buckeye? * Will some of the recent misses in defensive recruiting open the door for OSU to flip recruits from other programs late in this cycle? Or help the Buckeyes land defensive players in the portal following the 2022 season? All of that and much more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish as Dave Biddle flies solo.

How much would Buckeyes having a top-10 defense help with recruiting?

On today's show, Jonah Booker and Dave Biddle field questions from Bucknuts subscribers. If Ohio State has a top-10 defense in 2022, how much will that help with recruiting on the defensive side of the ball? Could they even flip some defensive recruits before the early signing period in December?When the College Football Playoff eventually expands, how many teams would we like to see in the field? Who thought starting NIL without guardrails in place was a good idea? And can guardrails be put in place in the future? A lot of powerful people believe some type of regulations should be put into place, but how? That plus much, much more is covered on this edition of the Friday 5ish. Learn more about your ad choices.

What would qualify as a good defense for Ohio State this year?

Ohio State's defense was bad last year. And the year before that. We're confident it will not be bad this season. But can it be good? And what exactly constitutes a "good" collegiate defense? Top-30 nationally? Better? The Buckeyes will have an elite offense, so if they can be good defensively, they are going to be a big problem for their opponents. Can new defensive coordinator Jim Knowles get OSU to that point? Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle for his usual Friday visit to delve into all of that, take questions from Bucknuts subscribers and more.

You can't win them all | 'Best tight end since Rickey Dudley'

What's the famous saying? "You can't win them all." There have been times on the recruiting trail we thought that did not apply to the Buckeyes. It felt like it was commitment after commitment. But ... apparently ... "You can't win them all." While Ohio State added elite tight end Jelani Thurman over the weekend the past few days have seen Tackett Curtis and Justice Haynes commit elsewhere.  Is this a trend? What's next for the Buckeyes?
