Per espn Trevor Thompson chooses Ohio State, excited about this pickup. Could get clearance to play this year due to sick father.

There we go Thad.  I don't mind a lil bit of the Mayor's approach and land a few transfers here and there.

 

"I love the academics, the fans, my new teammates and the coaching staff," Thompson said. "It was the perfect fit."

This is great news and it would even get better if he could play immediately but this is the first I have heard that is a possibility.

Same here, that would be very interesting.  But this is great news either way.

Edit:  I should have added that ideally, Trevor's dad doesn't have any health issues, and I'm sure everyone here would agree.  Best of luck to Trevor and his family, and welcome!

Either way is OK with me. If he redshirts, he will have a year of wight lifting to add 20-25 lbs of muscle and maturity and be ready to take over the middle once Amir is graduated with 3 years remaining. If he cleared to play now, he can push Amir for playing time. I like the first case better to be truthful.

Its good to be the king

Does this mean we have used up all of our scholarships unless someone redshirts?

I don't know if we've used all our scholarships, however, redshirts do count towards the scholarship count.

I am assuming that if Turner wants in we will have room.
