Another day and another Buckeye commitment winning big honors. This time, wide receiver Terry McLaurin from Cathedral High School (Indianapolis, Ind.) gets the prize; he was named Indiana's "Mr. Football" this morning.

McLaurin, who committed to Ohio State in late June, burst onto the national recruiting with eye-popping combine numbers at Nike's "The Opening," football camp in Eugene, Oregon in early July, led his Irish to a state championship with a dominating state final performance.

At 6-foot-tall and 190-pounds, the speedy Hoosier will become another versatile weapon in Urban Meyer's Buckeye arsenal, capable of finding paydirt whether he's lined up in the offensive backfield, in the slot, at wide receiver or returning punts and kicks.

Best. Nickname. Ever.

Although currently we are none too pleased about missing the MNC game this year, here is another reason to be VERY excited about the future.  Tons and tons of talent waiting in the wings and tons more on their way to Columbus.  It's STILL a great time to be a Buckeye! 
p.s   The basketball team is kicking ass too.  Go Bucks!

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

All this speed.......Maybe another Ted Ginn perhaps ?? Tall, fast, long strides to the endzone

The sites I have checked have his 40 time listed as 4.41 - While these aren't always totally reliable, the film itself shows you this guy can fly. Love speed for those skill positions :)

What is this? A center for ants?!? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building?

He ran the 4.41 at the Opening. I believe he would have ran faster but it was the last run of the day and he was already tired from the other events.
 
 

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Like many of us, I'm really excited to see what this young man does when he dons the scarlet and gray. Wow, he's got some skils.

Wow, his highlight film is fantastic! Congrats to him on the honor. Looks like another weapon for Meyer to use in this explosive offense. I'm excited about this guy!

Dat highlight tape.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Will he actually be thrown to during his time here..or will he become a "master downfield blocker"? I kid, I kid. Congrats on the hardware.

BUCKEYES BABY!

That one where he flew toward the goal and stretched the ball over the line...wow!  He made it all look easy on that highlight video. 

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...
