Wow.
RT @MikeWScout Signing Day starts off with http://NJ.com  reporting Darius Slade will not sign w MSU today and has OSU visit planned

Jordan Wagner's picture

Per NJ.com, Darius Slade will not sign with MSU today. He will visit Ohio State soon.

Seems like this could be our backup plan for MM, right? Probably don't have the room for two more. 

EwanJobi's picture

The fact that he might be decommitting from Michigan State, makes it sound like it might be the other way around, especially if a certain five star follows his heart north...

Damn, you boys are up and at 'em early.  Atta boy, Sammy!  5:15am, that is impressive.
Oregonian, are you IN Oregon, or from Oregon?  Cause it's what 4am out there?!?!

Good morning my friends! May this fine day bring joy to all!

I ready to see mclaurin speed. He has all the potential to be a deep threat in the passing game.

I hope Terry moves this fast in the snow.

When Webb signs that's going to make my day.

Wasn't he being predicted to go to msu? Looks like sparty is falling apart at the finish line!

Happy NSD all!

Looks like I'm fashionably late, very pleased to see the new Buckeyes signing up.

Let's go Buckeyes!

Nnadi signs with Florida State. 

Jordan Wagner's picture

Derrick Nnadi has committed to Florida State. 

Buckabroad's picture

Nnadi commitment to FSU not surprising, but regretful. Many recruits have raved about his ability (including Knox). Would have been a great addition for us.

FWIW Birm has changed his crystal ball predictions for Slade to OSU today! You have to think him visiting after signing day,the staff must want him & plan on taking him if he wants in.

#Buckeyes

tOSUswaggernut's picture

How many times can he change his crystal ball until its just reporting?

aramsey's picture

Long time browser, first time poster. One of the best times of the year. Love to see what kind of magic Urban can work today.

Go1Bucks's picture

ESecPN already touting SEC is the place to be.  Whata joke.

Go Bucks!

Go1Bucks's picture

Id rather have McDowell .  Thomas to Stanford.
Maybe Jones went to visit MSU to get Slade?

Go Bucks!

tOSUswaggernut's picture

You don't use a schools funds for your official visit to recruit one of their players. I sure hope we have a smidgen on ethics. 

bucknut8's picture

Wow! Wouldnt it be crazy IF we keep J. Jones, add McDowell AND steal Slade away from MSU!?  That would be crazy!

I can't sign in / post anything in the chat.

ESPN has OSU ranked at 6.  What the hell are they smoking?

Go Bucks!

johnblairgobucks's picture

Shocked that ESPN has 4 SEC teams in the top 5......
said no one, ever.

Furious George 27's picture

EsecPN values quantity over quality.... Most of the programs ahead are signing 4-5 kids more except the Vols they are signing 10 more... Somehow.

Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.

Going to shovel.  Will pick up CBS sports coverage at 10, 4letter is unwatchable.

I feel embarrassed. Just saw that we signed Erick Smith but for the life of me I can't remember anything about him. Could you guys possibly give me some info?

Some female announcer just stated on ESPN that Tennessee was getting ready to sign 35-40 new individuals - uh,right.

Go Bucks!

It seems after today, Texas AtM will have signed 70+ players the past 3 years and is now pulling in 5* recruits from Arizona and Louisiana.  Texas AtM has won a total of 2 Conference championships in the past 20 years, and their last National Championship was in 1939.  Is Sumlin really that good of a coach? Is the draw to attend college in College Station that strong to not think something fishy may be going on down there?  Hell, even their Heisman Trophy winning QB doesn't like to attend classes on their campus, so what is drawing kids there?

TLB's picture

New stadium and facilities.  

cplunk's picture

Texas dropped into semi-suckville at the same time that Texas A&M started getting the benefit of SEC press, ESPN coverage/love, and having the most notable player in college football. 
I don't think it is anything more than that.
I said it before and I'll say it again, Texas should have given A&M whatever they wanted to stay in the Big 12. Whatever they wanted. Letting them move to the SEC will completely change the dynamic, and we're already seeing it. No longer will it be big brother Texas and little brother A&M. It will be SEC team A&M getting all the ESPN love and press, while Texas tries to make as much noise as it can in the great plains region of the country.
I'd get used to A&M out-recruiting Texas for the foreseeable future.

I think Sumlin bennifited from running Briles system at Houston and that got him the A&M job.  I also think he's bennefiting from some of the things Sherman did before him.  We'll see, I guess.  Being able to get away with oversigning probably won't hurt.

ToetotheFace's picture

I wouldn't necessarily say he was simply running briles system, Briles incorporates a lot of down field passing off of play action. Briles' teams generally run a decent amount of option, even if they're much more dependent on throwing than say an Urban Meyer offense. Sumlin runs more of an air raid style, with 5 wr sets and a lot of crossing routes/screens. If you look at the run pass percentages, they basically flip flopped once Sumlin became coach at Houston. I'm sure he learned a lot from him, but I think KS deserves some credit for how successful his offensive systems have been.

Good morning all from the West coast -
Looking forward to another fantastic Buckeye Day!!

Morning Buckeye Brother!

Hey Hey it's early

bdegroff's picture

Was able to watch Smith and Lattimore in the D2 State game. Both can run and hit. Played both ways and were back for punt and KO returns. Neither were afraid to put there noses in and make hits.

EwanJobi's picture

Look out, Big Ten, on ESPN. Enjoy the next thirty seconds of coverage.

With the first 15 seconds committed to how we gave away the game to Clemson.

Do we know when it will be?

10:30 if I am not mistaken

9:30 we were told

Mortc15's picture

MSU tried taking a top OSU commit and Urban returned the favor by keeping Jones and probably flipping Slade. Guy's a magician and I'm so glad he's on our side! 

Buck-I4Life

tOSUswaggernut's picture

Ugh, that's most likely because we aren't getting MM. 

Mortc15's picture

Imo, I'd rather not have MM. It's obvious his heart isn't in Columbus and I don't want players who don't completely want to be part of the program. 

Buck-I4Life

EwanJobi's picture

Yeah. Hopefully it works out well for him and his parent's concerns fail to materialize. The drama won't be missed.

The anti-ESPN comment downvote stalker on this thread is funny.  Try posting by the words of Jim Rome "have a take, and do not suck."

And there's the MM news. Great player. Too bad were gonna have to beat him now!

Everyone be sure to stay off espn at least online...impossible for tv coverage, but their backside kissing of the sec is breathtaking
Jumping in late on Erick Smith, but he's a legit 4 star Baller safety, can cover can hit and actually looks like he's been coached to 'wrap his arms around a ball carrier and bring him to the ground'...can't remember what that's called, but he does it
Would have gotten more hype of he wasn't lined up next to superman Lattimore

Is there a list out there of all the players that have signed LOI and a list of who's left ???

johnblairgobucks's picture

Buckeye players only on this list from Scout:
http://ohiostate.scout.com/a.z?s=145&p=9&c=8&yr=2014
whether they have signed LOI's may not be  as accurate/up to the minute as 11W.

Seattle Linga's picture

Thanks JB I appreciate it

sharks's picture

Berger and Jamarco are the only stragglers per 247. Ignatius is open today, he's probably in class...

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

Seattle Linga's picture

Birms and Wagner mentioned that Berger was having trouble with the transmission on the fax machine and JJ had to deal with snow issues

I hate fax machines

Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.

Treemeister's picture

I thought I read that both Jones & Berger signed around 10:30 am.

Damian Prince to Maryland, "B1G conference had the most OL drafted in the last 10 years." Interesting if true.

sbentz4's picture

Is there any coverage on TV besides ESPN?

Seattle Linga's picture

CBS Sport Network - much better without the agenda

LSU up to #2 over OH-IO...
 

TossTrap's picture

Local newspaper here is saying @ 11:18AM that apparently DE Malik McDowell still hasn't sent #MSU his signed LOI.
Perhaps sans parental signature?

First and goal at the five and Arch is getting the ball.

So now that Meech has signed, we can go back to giving him ridiculous upvotes; right?
