COLUMBUS, OH- Ohio State shocked the sports world when they fired Thad Matta last week but replaced him quickly with former Butler coach Chris Holtmann on Friday. Holtmann will bring three assistant coaches with him from the Bulldogs program he led to the Sweet Sixteen last season and could potentially have recruits, such as Massillon Jackson's 6' 7" forward Kyle Young, follow him to Columbus.

At the same time, coach Urban Meyer is on the recruiting trail for future Buckeye football stars, hosting one-day camps over the last couple weeks. RB Master Teague III has already committed to the squad for 2018, and others like 4-star OLB K'Vaughn Pope are expected to follow suite. Perhaps most exciting for North Central Ohio fans of the scarlet and gray is Lexington 4-star OLB Cade Stover standing out with his performance at camp on Tuesday. The soon to be junior has already been offered by Ohio State and is a key recruit for coach Meyer and the squad in 2019.

On this week's episode of The Sports Buzz, host Brian Skowronski and "Big" Mike Thompson discuss OSU's recent hire of Holtmann and potential football prospects.
