If you had to choose how many OL would be in the 2014 class & who it was, who would you choose & why?
I believe the OL position along w/ the LB position will be the most interesting to watch for the 2014 recruiting class. The OL class seems to be loaded w/ alot of kids high on OSU & same goes for the LB, but this is about the OL. Jimmy Byrne, Jamarco Jones, Demetrius Knox, Mason Cole, Damian Prince, Orlando Brown Jr, Braden Smith, KC McDermott, Donell Stanley, Nick Richardson & Kyle Trout or someone else? I honestly dont see guys like Prince, Smith & Stanley coming to OSU as Prince & Smith go to another Big Time School & Stanley has a non commitable offer, IMO. I see a battle brewing for guys like Byrne, Jones, Knox, Cole, Brown Jr, McDermott, Richardson & Trout. I have a strong feeling Knox is just playing the recruiting game & he's known as a jokester. IMO, Knox is just playing along & trying to get his friend some big time hype. Brown Jr will strongly look south, but he has way to many ties to Ohio. Byrne is the top Ohio kid & will be a "must get" prospect. Jones, Cole, McDermott are 3 out of state top OL that are highly interested in OSU. Now talking about Richardson & Trout are different as neither have offers. I believe Trout will get one very soon & Richardson could possibly earn one, based off of how OSU does against the top OOS kids.
I see OSU taking 4 OL in this class, Hopefully! I believe Byrne will be a Buckeye. Trout will get his offer & be a Buckeye. Now I feel that OSU is just "out there" to guys like Knox & Brown, & we land 1 if not both of them. I feel like McDermott could take the spot of 1 of those 2 if we dont land both. If OSU misses on Knox, Brown, & McDermott, Richardson will get his offer & be a Buckeye.
Whats your guess?
