Sizing-up the Townsend loss...
Last year OSU punted 62 times in 12 games; 5.1 punts per game.
Our average net yards per punt was just 34.5 (39 gross) ranking us 109 of 124 FBS college teams. With a good punter who can get more distance and more hang time we could conservatively improve 5 net yards per punt. That would just land us in the top third in net punting...very realistic.
5 punts per game x 5 net yards different per punt is 25 yards per game. That's a meaningful loss. Possibly more of a difference than any other recruit will make as a true freshman, but certainly less impact than what these recruits will be making in years to come.
