What if C.J. Stroud didn't pick Ohio State? BuckeyeFly Effect

On this BuckeyeFly Effect, Doug Lesmerises, Nathan Baird and Stephen Means consider an intriguing What If.
What if quarterback C.J. Stroud didn't pick Ohio State late in the recruiting process in the Class of 2020?

Where might Stroud have gone?

What would Stroud's career look like right now?

What effect would that have had on OSU QBs Kyle McCord, Jack Miller, Quinn Ewers and others?

Would the Buckeyes have been a national contender last season, and a title favorite this season?

Would Ewers be getting ready to start for the Buckeyes in 2022?

Would the view of Ryan Day change at all?

There was no guarantee that the Buckeyes would get the Southern California quarterback. So this isn't a crazy idea. That means it's an interesting edition of BuckeyeFly Effect on Buckeye Talk from cleveland.com.
