COLUMBUS – After another huge week of Ohio State news and notes, Cardale Jones and Tyvis Powell are back for another loaded edition of Roommates.

Name, Image and Likeness is officially in practice across the nation after the NCAA passed an interim NIL policy earlier that went into effect Thursday. And Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine took control of the state’s NIL situation and signed an executive order allowing all student-athletes in Ohio to profit off their own NIL on Monday. Cardale was at DeWine’s signing and testified in front of the Ohio House state and local government committee about the benefits of NIL for athletes last month. Cardale and Tyvis discuss how NIL is a long time coming and what some of the partnerships could look like.

The duo also break down the latest on the recruiting trail for the Buckeyes. Ohio State hosted nine camps in the month of June while welcoming 172 unofficial visitors and hosting 44 official visits. Arguably the most important visitor for the Buckeyes was the top remaining recruit in the class of 2021, J.T. Tuimoloau. The five-star defensive lineman is the No. 3 overall prospect in the class and has cut his list of schools down to Ohio State, Washington, Oregon and USC. He was set to go to Alabama for his final official visit at the end of June, but he announced he was not making the trip and entering decision mode. An announcement could come at any moment.

Cardale and Tyvis also give a quick glimpse of their disgust towards Michigan. That’s just part of what makes the latest edition of Roommates with Cardale Jones and Tyvis Powell a must-listen for Buckeyes fans.

The latest show is loaded with fun and intriguing storylines. Don’t miss it.
