Social Media Reactions

Reactions we gathered from commits and targets

Hayden: "I didn't get to watch it much, but Emeka [Egbuka] was killing it."

Hicks: "It was amazing. I loved being back in The Shoe and getting to watch some of the early enrollees ball out."


Grayes: "Them boys were looking good. The game was a lot of fun to watch. Shoot, Marvin [Harrison Jr.] and Emeka did great today."

Christian: "Sadly, I didn't get to watch it. Our TV package doesn't come with B1G network... I did see some highlights. Looks like [Kyle] McCord is playing elite already."

Styles: "It was pretty cool. I was really paying attention to number 15, Craig Young, because that’s who they compared me to. And I loved how they used him at the 'Bullet' position. Something I could see myself doing for sure.

"That was my biggest takeaway from the game. It was fun to be in The Shoe as well, it’s been a while. Happy to see my guy Jack Sawyer doing his thing. Got to talk to CJ [Hicks] and Dasan [McCullough], as well as Luke [Montgomery], so that was nice. But it was pretty good.”

James: “I only got to watch the first half because I had a workout but I liked everything I saw. Emeka looked really nice and I can see him playing a good amount of minutes this upcoming season. CJ Stroud looked pretty solid as well, but I was really impressed with Kyle McCord.

"I never heard a lot about him until today and he looked nice. I’m really excited to see how they carry that type of play into the season.”

Padilla: "I loved it. The atmosphere was great and the players were super fun to watch."

Wedin: "Was only able to catch a few snaps but it was interesting to watch some of the younger linemen to see how their developmental progress is going. Wish I could’ve made in up there in person and can’t wait to get up there in June hopefully!"

Johnson: "Great game. Glad to see everyone and can't wait to get to Columbus and play ball."
