For anyone following the scholarship, Bill Kurelic of OSU and MSU 247 affiliates says a source very close to the staff says that they'd be surprised to see any of the following names on the roster in the spring:
- OL Tommy Brown (one we've heard before, seems most likely)
- OL Darryl Baldwin (see above)
- DL Chris Carter
- LB Connor Crowell
- TE Blake Thomas (this is one that might matter, as Kyle Berger has mentioned his friendship with Blake in some interviews)
UPDATE: On Thomas, a source very close to Thomas says he's staying, which is good news if true.
