PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I say Diamond,Neal, Reeves, and Marcus. Is this too much or will OSU have to cut some choices.
Technically oversigning is when you sign more than the limit of 25 guys. I would say we're going to "oversign" but not more than 82 (with losses). OSU haters will say "they're against oversigning, but they oversigned too" when in reality, it's only malicious if you go over the 85 (or in our case 82) mark. There's gonna be a lot of attrition and I'd say we get 3 more recruits. Marcus is for sure in, then Reeves, then I'd say save a spot for Neal. I feel like Diamond is UM bound.
I say Dodson, Bradley, Cox, Reeves and Neal (after signing day).
Diamond seems adrift.
"You win with people." - Woody Hayes
I listened to individuals with one of the ranking services recently (after listening to so many lately it is impossible to distinguish which one) and as a group they felt Diamond wasn't as good as advertised. He was good mind you but they dropped him considerably from the point at which he started due to his performance in the recent all-star games. They did not seem impressed at all by their description. For what it is worth it's maybe best Hokey Pokey gets him.
Seems like Dodson is all but in. Reeves just makes sense. I like Marcus but wouldn't be upset if we didn't get him. We're loaded at LB. Personally I'd love to see us get both Bradley and Cox but that seems unlikely. I hope Meyer has Neal as a priority right now though. He is as dynamic and exciting a player as there is in this year's class.
Alex - I saw that Dalton Santos cancelled his trip. What happened there?
I'm hoping Dodson, Bradley, Neal, and Reeves.
Sunseri to Tennessee = Santos re-affirming
Alex have you heard that Diamond hasn't been as impressive as some previously thought? The guys I heard referring to him were probably scout but not positive. They did not seem very impressed. They also seemed to not want to disparage the kid too much but struggled for some positives. Thanks for the great work.
Thanks Alex. I forgot about Sunseri heading there. Too bad, though I think we have just as good a MLB in Roberts. I"m excited for this kid. Seems like Laurinaitis II.
My projected finish. Reeves, Cox, Dodson, Neal (after NSD). Diamond-ARK, Bradley- Stanford, Marcus-ECU. I have no sources or insider info. This is just going off a gut feeling. Boy this has been a fun last month! I don't ever remember doing this in the Tressel era.
In the tressel era we punted to the one.
won a NC though
THis is just a thought, but on Bucknuts theres a thread about a silent OT comitt thats from Ohio, but not mentioned who it is. Happened to check out State of Ohio recruit rankings on 247, and noticed OT Zach Higgins currently comitted to MSU is from Aliiance Ohio, same as Dymonte Thomas. Alex had said yesterday Urban was there visiting Dymonte, so maybe thats not all he was in Alliance for. I have nothing to confirm this at all, just a thought and something I saw as maybe a possibility. However also could be Bucknuts rumor has nothing too it, so take it for what it is.
Favorite Buckeye: Obviously BJ Mullens
Ok, wasn't sure if it would be him since he was at MSU this weekend. Thanks tho!
Is there any chance Bogard switches his commitment to USC?
I thought I heard Bogard reaffirmed his commitment. Alex can you confirm? I also read Ricquan Southward is good grade wise and solid commit as well.
Yeah Bogard and Southward reaffirmed their commitments
I had edited this post because Gene is always right and got mad at me for not seeing a post he posted while I was writing this post. :(
Guess you got nothing better to do than antagonize me smh
This post was originally written but Gene was upset so I edited it for him.
Not really, you just can't accept a post, has to be done a specific way, jeez, so anal. You remind me of a scUM fan. Just saying.

I didn't see your post, I was writing my reply. Please get over yourself. I changed it so I didn't look like I was correcting you. I apologize and removed it so it didn't look dick-ish. What else do you want me to do?
Hey Gene and Tim,
I'm sure I'm not the only person who is tired of seeing the bickering between the two of you polluting threads. I think this is the second one you have hijacked today.
I'm done arguing with someone who wishes they could be a sports insider and calls me names because I demand accountability.
Anyway, something tells me Bradley's going to Pitt or Stanford, not OSU.
Tim, with all due respect, you are in no place to "demand accountability". Once again, this is a FREE blog posting site. This isn't CBS Sports. We aren't all going to be having to step down if we report something incorrect. Coming back on here and telling everyone to grow up doesn't help prove your point. If anything, it makes it look like your panties are in a bigger bunch than we all had thought.
Lol you really are full of yourself, oh well just don't make an ass of yourself because you don't like my posts. Just leave it as it is, and there won't be any bickering. I'm not an analyst, and for the final time I'm going to say this, I am just passing along information to fellow Buckeyes. I apologize if you don't appreciate what I'm doing for the benefit of others who don't want to make Twitter accounts or don't want to spend time searching the web. They come to this site hoping to find all the info there is to know and I'm only trying to help. Just drop it already, this thread isn't about you and I.
Couldn't have said it better myself, Gene. Keep up the great work!
I know its ESecPN and I cant finish reading the article cause im not an insider but from just the title...
Neal, Cox, Dodson, Reeves, and Marcus.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Adam you asked about Southward and Bogard, so here is some reading material for you. :-)
Ah, recruiting. Bringing out the best in all fans.
I too like Neal, Dodson, Marcus, Reeves & Cox. I have no idea where the roster spots are going to come from but believe the staff does.
