The Ohio State Buckeyes football team fell just short of winning the national championship in 2020. But they’re ready for a big 2021, and want every would-be recruit for 2022 and beyond to know it.
On Saturday, Buckeyes head coach Ryan Day posted a new hype video aimed at recruits. And it is absolutely incredible.
Narrated by two-time Heisman Trophy winner and Buckeyes legend Archie Griffin, the 3.5-minute video highlights the rich traditions of the program dating back to its start in 1890. Among the many players highlighted in the video are Griffin, Cris Carter, Troy Smith, Orlando Pace, and Chase Young.
The video also goes into the present, showing an inside look at a fiery locker room speech from Day. It concludes with “The Future,” extending an invitation to anyone who wants to be a part of their program.
It’s a powerful video to be sure. Take a look:

Ohio State have continued to be one of the top recruiting schools in the country under Ryan Day. Their 2021 class was ranked just behind Alabama on 247Sports. And the 2022 class is shaping up to be just as good, if not better.
It certainly helps that Ohio State have one of the top quarterback recruits ever in Quinn Ewers. And they didn’t need this hype video to get him on board.
As good as Ohio State already are, with the Big Ten basically under their thumb for most of the last five years, things are continuing to look up for them everywhere.
If only they can finish the job with another national title…
