Just some things i've learned as of recent on potential recruits that people might like to know.
-James Quick will not commit before the season starts, and has not set a time table on when he will. He will more then likley take an OV to Oregon during his senior year and will likley make his decision shortly after that. Several friends of mine close to the Trinity program have told me the chances of him going to Louisville have dropped to 30% while OSU and Oregon now likley lead. It will more then likley come down to if Urban is able to show Quick that the offensive culture has changed in Columbus, if not then he will be Oregon bound.
tOSU chances: 40%
- I've been bringing up Tony Stevens alot, he's currently working on taking a trip up to Columbus for an UV. Stevens has listed three schools he has expressed intrest in; tOSU, USF, and South Carolina. Of those three schools Stevens has been singing a very pro-osu tune and has been on record saying he would commit to UF if Meyer was still there, an eventual decommitment looks emminent. Stevens like what we have seen with 2014 OT D.Knox had a highschool teammate that he wanted to help secure a Florida State offer and after they were both offered he pulled the trigger. Keep your eyes peeled for this kid, he's really been shinning as of late on the summer camp circut.
tOSU chances: 30%
-Even though Demorea Stringfellow has committed to washington that doesnt mean his recruiting process is over. The reciever who once had a top two of tOSU and ND before abruptly committing to Washington after a visit has said he is still keeping his options open. Stringfellow has also said he still wants to take visits to some midwest schools and that everyone is still in play.
tOSU chances: 20%
-Shelton Gibson will apparently be retaking his ACT and/or SAT this coming school year. IMO everyone is being hard on him for "grades," which from what I have gathered isnt really grades but instead it was his dismal standardized test scores that caused a red flag in his recruiting process. Most students don't take the ACT/SAT until their senior year anyways, and I would imagine a significant improvement in those scores and a quick commitment after that. But Gibson will likley give himself options, he will more then likley take UV's to Auburn among other schools in case tOSU doesnt work out for him.
tOSU chances: 50%
-Devon Allen's top 5 will be coming soon, its speculated to include (in order) scUM, UCLA, tOSU, ND, and ASU. It's hard to forceast where Devon may land, he started his recruiting process late and has been very hard pressed to name a leader. ScUM may not have room to take Devon, which leaves the door wide open for others schools. Many have been on record saying the chances are slim he leaves the west coast despite his recent midwest trip and the fact his father player for tOSU.
tOSU chances: 30%
Other potential recruits
-MarQuez North will not choose his school until NSD. It would be hard to imagine we still have offers left to give at that point so the tall reciever out of Charlotte,NC is likley out of the convo.
tOSU chances: 5%
-There is nothing postive to point to that says Robert Foster will be heading to Columbus, Urban has already turned his attention elsewhere and I dont see that changing (i'm sure everyone is going to want to argue this.)
tOSU chances: 10%
-Zach Youssey may be the guy that earns an offer if Meyer can only land one or two recievers this year to round out the class. I would imagine with Mike Mitchell takes spot 17 and spot 18 either going to Tyquan Lewis or option B in Christopher Worley. The other 1-4 spots are all reserved for split ends, wide outs and Vonn Bell.
tOSU chances: 100%, 5% says he lands an offer
