It’s becoming clear that Urban Meyer and his Ohio State Buckeyes don’t need rebuilding years.
The Buckeyes’ Instagram account made that clear, creating a short video that shows how previous stars Joey Bosa, Darron Lee, Ezekiel Elliot, Vonn Bell and Michael Thomas — all NFL Draft picks in the first two rounds this year — have been replaced by DL Sam Hubbard, LB Raekwon McMillan, RB Mike Weber, DB Malik Hooker and WR Noah Brown. Even with the changes, the Buckeyes continue to roll to huge wins.
The video also includes a quote from Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel: “They recruit. They win. They reload. They do it again.”
After a 45-24 drubbing of Oklahoma, and with a No. 2 ranking, it’s hard to argue.
The video includes the words, “Meet the new Buckeyes…Same as the old Buckeyes.”
Hooker is currently tied with teammate Marshon Lattimore and others for a nation-best three interceptions. Brown is tied for the country lead with five touchdown catches.
