PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Just grabbed the link, Lattimore in at 22!
Of Note for Buckeye fans from the top 100.
Dante booker didn't get much love. I dont really like how Scout ranks their players but it's always fun to see some early raitings.
Hopefully everyone you just listed ends up as a Buckeye!
Dante Booker Jr. in at 110, which seems a bit low, ^ and that would be awesome
I don't love Scout, but I'm a nerd and I counted all the guys with "interest" from/in Ohio State. I counted 76 (give or take one or two if I miscounted).
I did notice at least one guy who has an OSU offer (per Rivals), Orlando Brown, who did not have OSU listed as a 'school of interest'.
I like Scout because eventually they give strengths and weaknesses, which is usually a good indicator for future use in offense/defense. I use 247 for rankings (and their composite is nice), Rivals for rankings and their stars rankings are usually good too, and ESPN for their scouting report paragraphs, which are decent.
Lattimore getting some big time love
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
Dante Booker might not be in the top 100, but he is listed as the 2nd rated OLB. Not saying that the Scout rankings mean that much, but if you wanted to use them as a measuring stick, they actually seem to be pretty high on Booker relative to others at his position.
* curious why somebody would downvote the fact that I pointed out that being ranked #2 player in the country at your position is pretty good.
Also, I was surprised to see Nick Richardson, an Ohio OT that I haven't heard of, ranked ahead of both Jimmy Byrne, who already has an offer, and Kyle Trout, who seems to be next in line for an offer.
@Aah Saturday..... Richardson is another highly rated Tackle in Ohio. I think getting Richardson, Byrne & Trout are all guys we should get in this class. All 3 can play tackle & I could even see Richardson & Byrne moving inside if needed. This helps our big need of Tackles & the OL in general, keeps top talent in state & away from other Big Ten teams. As far as I'm concerned if we miss on National Tackles this would be a great way to go as all 3 seem to be top 10 OL in the Midwest. Getting all 3 & 1 or 2 nation OL would fix the OL problems. Booker will be a Buckeye soon. Just a matter of time. Same goes for Lattimore but with him being a Glenville product, he will wait it out.
I don't think we're getting Byrne, he seems set on ND, although it's still very early. There are a TON of great linemen in this class though.
I wouldn't cheer for Michigan if they were playing the Taliban.
Like many on here I believe we need a game changer at safety. Hopefully, Vonn Bell is part of this class. However, It would be nice to get a stud every year. Looking at Safety's for next year I found it odd that 6 of the top 9 safties are from Texas. How can one state have so much elite talent in one state. They also have 3 of the top 9 CB's on that list.
Texas is going to have a very good class next year it seems. They already have the top qb, a top ten RB, #1 FB, #11 WR, #11 DE.
As much as i love Zeke and Marshall in this class I really think Lattimore is something sepcial. I mean this kid is just ridiculous. I think he will be the best player we have pulled out of glenville in a long time from Ginn Sr.
