Hey buckeye fans! Take a look at what I just saw on twitter while I was checking in on the whole Mike Gesicki decision that is supposed to come this friday! 

Just wanted to share what many of you have probably already seen! Mike just tweeted this and posted this to instagram. As you can see, our staff is using the "next man up" quotes to show future recruits/players that they will have a home in Buckeye Nation. I love seeing this kind of stuff on social media sites. You have to love our recruiting staff! They have great ideas that recruits love to show off to their friends and family. Go Bucks! I noticed we used this same picture for Raekwon yesterday and now it seems we are pulling out all of the stops for Mike! I realize this ihas little to do with making a decision for him, but you have to like the words and feelings he expresses on his social media sites. Please share your comments, feelings, and opinions on his choice Friday and where you believe he will commit (verbally) too. Thanks guys and go bucks! Let's go get Iowa on Saturday and make it 19 straight for the good guys!

For me, Gesicki is as close to a MUST GET as there is. We only have 3 TEs on our roster and I'm a little worried about what I've been reading recently about Baugh (only rumors at this point). Gotta get Mikey!!!!

Amen! Couldn't agree more! Just talked to Michael Chung who is a reporter for "theozone" one of Ohio State's news forum sites and he has a new article about Gesicki and a few other recruits. Here is the link! I agree though, we must get Mike! He's talented and a must get if our TE position contines to be a part of this high powered offense!

I think this is brilliant by the OSU staff. It is a powerful picture. It allows the potential player to see himself as a Buckeye. Very powerful.
It's just like when you go to buy a new car and the dealer lets you drive said car home, park it in your driveway, so you can VISUALIZE it there.
Very powerful and smart. I now expect other schools to follow suit and do the same thing.
Also, I think we have to get Gesicki and McMillan. But I think McMillan is almost even more important than MG, because of OSU's lack of depth at LB, and the amount of time invested in Raekwon.
I really hope we can get both these guys though. That should put the 2014 OSU class @ #1 or #2.

Gesicki, McMillan, and Lattimore are our three remaining "must-get's." There's a good argument for Mavety as well, but I trust Warriner enough to not worry about the o-line.

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.

Great insight @BUCKEYEDUDE! agree with you totally! MUST gets for this class!

Agreed but lattimore and smith are important to keep the cleveland line open but ju ju and rogers might be a better combo.

He would look great in Scarlet and Gray!!
Go Bucks!!

calebhouser9's picture

That he would! Hopefully we get two 19's soon! Win number 19 and recruit/commit number 19!

immediate impact on the roster, IMHO...

@GOBUCKS96 Agreed! Hopefully everything with Marcus Baugh straightens out and the next duo in Gesicki and Baugh will pan out to be another great TE tandem! Love Heurman and Vannett, but talent wise, Marcus and Mike may have the edge! Excited for our future as always! Hope we get him tomorrow!

This was just retweeted a few hours ago by Mike on his twitter site. Like that a lot!

Since I'm guessing he knew by then what his decision was going to be, it now looks like he was tweeting those things to mess with peoples' heads and get their hopes up unnecessarily.
His prerogative, but that doesn't mean I have to like it, or think it's very mature.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Yeah it really seemed like we were moving back into the drivers seat for his services...
Think he faked us all out...damn

Hope in two weeks he enjoys watching us kill PSU

Would love to seen him a Buckeye especially with Marcus Baugh reportedly in limbo but honestly Penn State commits to throwing to their Tight Ends more than Ohio State so until that changes I think it's a good fit. O'Brien is doing a great job; hurts OSU in short term but good for B1G & OSU in long run.
