As soon as the Ohio State football team returned to Columbus after a disappointing outcome in the Fiesta Bowl last week, attention shifted from the 2019 season to the future. It’s time to start building for the 2020 season and beyond.

Several members of Ohio State’s 2020 recruiting class will be taking part in that this spring, as 14 players have enrolled early. That means they’ll get a jump-start on their careers in Columbus and have the chance to get familiar with college life.

This week, those 14 early enrollees showed up on campus, ready to start their journey with the Buckeyes. Head coach Ryan Day had a special message for those recruits, talking about the expectations at Ohio State and the standard that has been set on and off the field in Columbus.

Ohio State certainly has had things going its way recently. The Buckeyes have claimed three-straight B1G titles and are coming off a 13-1 season. The incoming 2020 recruiting class sits atop the B1G and ranks inside the top five nationally, according to 247Sports.

Day will be entering his second season as the head coach of the Bucks.
