Ohio State is an absolute NFL factory. The Buckeyes win.
They win a lot and they win big. Part of the reason is certainly because of the players. You need to be extremely talented to just play at Ohio State. Heck, to even be recruited.
Every year, the Buckeyes have to turn away really good players for a multitude of reasons. This year was no different.
On Wednesday, coach Ryan Day talked about how he had to turn away from possible February signees because of scholarship issues:
Ryan Day said Ohio State "had to walk away" from a couple players it would have pursued as February signees because he didn't want to be put in a situation where the Buckeyes would have too many players on scholarship.
Buckeyes still waiting to hear on C.J. Saunders' sixth year.

Again, Ohio State always gets incredibly talented prospects to come to Columbus. If there’s room for more, the Buckeyes will make room.
But, they can’t get everybody. The team’s 2020 recruiting class currently consists of 25 members and ranks No. 5 nationally and first in the B1G.
C.J. Saunders, a potential sixth-year wide receiver, is one of those extremely talented players potentially taking up a scholarship at Ohio State for 2020.
