PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
does this do anything to our situation?
More for him to think about, not good for sure.
oregon isnt a defensive school & idk if Johnson really has alot of interest in Oregon. OSU really set the bar high for him, so I dont think this affects much at all. just another offer for him to consider, but dosnt mean he really will.
this one seems to be trending our way. all Buckeye to me
Don't think there is much to this especially if chip Kelly bolts for the NFL
I don't think there's any way he goes to Oregon. Oregon is flashy/trendy these days so people are willing to give them a look, but in my opinion they're getting in the race too late, and as Bucknut8 mentioned, they'd have to overcome their reputation as poor defensive school to get the signature of someone like Johnson. Not to mention for someone from Georgia, Oregon is on the other side of the country which is yet another negative (OSU is far, but only a few hours by plane, a day trip by car).
I really feel like it's going to come down to Florida and OSU. Technically USC is in the mix, but I don't see Johnson committing to them either with their defensive instability right now. Like Oregon, USC is a flashy name without a whole lot of substance at the moment (just my opinion). USC also has to overcome the distance--which I imagine isn't a huge factor for Johnson if he's considering him, but it's gotta be some factor for anyone. Auburn could possibly get back in the mix, but I think in the end it'll come down to OSU and Florida. The interview where a recruit talks about how excited he is over a new hire never happened with Johnson after the Malzahn hire, which I think is telling. Makes me feel like he may have moved on from Auburn completely.
My hunch is James Hearns is the x-factor. Hearns is a Florida LB commit who's going to be visiting Ohio State--and coincidentally, as a Florida commit, he's currently holding the ILB spot that Johnson would take at Florida. So my feeling is that either Hearns will stay at Florida and Johnson will commit to OSU, or Hearns will leave Florida for OSU and Johnson will commit to Florida. I'd rather have Johnson, myself. Johnson has a bit more speed imo. Keep a lookout for what Hearns does, though, I really feel he's the wildcard here.
that list bit is very interesting
I really don't think he would want to fly to Oregon, given all of the rain problems up there. Scientists say it rains like on average about 1 inch a day if you add up all the days & divide it by the longest days from late Spring to early Fall & Summer inbetween, then take the median average after throwing out the two smallest totals. The total must equal at or above 1.03 inches...but in the winter if it is colder the precipation turns to snow and base dew point amount will not equal the correlated amout in relation to the overall average. Or you could just melt the snow and it would turn to rainfall. Either way: it rains a lot in the Pacific-NW.
