Fact or Fiction - Carnell Tate

In today’s Fact or Fiction, I look at three big recent topics in college football and decide whether the statement is indeed FACT or if it’s FICTION.

Fact or Fiction:

Ohio State recruits WRs better than anyone else

Farrell’s take: FACT

There’s no debate when it comes to recent recruiting now with Carnell Tate and Brandon Inniss on board. When you consider Garrett Wilson, Julian Fleming, Emeka Egbuka, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Marvin Harrison Jr. and others, they have overtaken Alabama in WR recruiting and everyone else is a distant third. Chris Olave needs to be mentioned as well and he was just a 3-star.

Fact or Fiction:

Rueben Owens will look around despite Louisville commitment

Farrell’s take: FACT

I just have a gut feeling that Owens, who was committed to Texas and liked other schools as well, will look around if Louisville struggles this season. Talks of a $3 million NIL deal are likely exaggerated and he can get that at bigger programs as well. If Louisville plays well he sticks but if they don’t watch out.

Fact or Fiction:

Bijan Robinson should be RB1 on my Farrell50 RB list.

Farrell’s take: FICTION

The argument is that if Robinson had Ohio State’s offensive line then he’d be ahead of TreVeyon Henderson by far. And that’s a solid point but with Henderson a year younger and what he showed last season, I have him slightly ahead of Robinson on my Farrell50 RB list. Robinson is a better receiver but Henderson is more special as a runner.
