Sweat is a 5* WDE ranked as the #4 player on ESPN out of Chesapeake, VA

I'm sure he would love to be coached by mike vrabel too.. Sucks we lost him to the NFL but we couldn't ask for a better replacement.

I have no idea whatsoever how what you posted somehow merits being down voted by 4 people.

I'm trying not to get my hopes too high on this one because if we don't land him it will make the awesome recruits we do sign somewhat less special.  With that mindset this sounds like recruit-speak which is like coach-speak for high school kids.  However, the other side of me can't help but be excited by the possibility of Johnson landing what could become his magnum opus by the time he declares for the draft after most likely three years.

Josh on one side, and Bosa on the other. 700 sacks for the 2015 season?

Ok list, but Timmons shouldn't be #1, he's up there. Vonn Bell should absolutely be up there though, his recruitment was so up and down and lasted so long there were a billion.

I noticed that Josh has had a few twitter accounts hacked also.

Josh doesn't have any twitter/social media accounts, any accounts are fake accounts (according to a thread yesterday)

He would be an excellent fit and IMO the biggest "Fish" in the class down the road. Sweat, Cornell, Jones sounds like Problems, Problems and Mo Problems. What crop that could be.

Are we sure he's not trying to steal LJ to another school?

I'm sure Larry Johnson would love to coach him as well. I didnt think we had any chance of landing him a few weeks ago, but his statement shows that he is interested in the Bucks. Now its up to the staff to build on said interest. With Coach Meyer and Coach Johnson recruiting him, our chances are just as good as anyone. Gonna be hard for another school to top that recruiting duo.

His highlight tape is nothing short of remarkable. I can see why analysts are calling him to best defensive player since Clowney. Excellent speed and devastating tackling ability! He even has a one handed grab on offense. Elite athleticism at its finest. I really hope he ends up in Columbus. Regardless, he will be an exciting player to watch.

I don't know how many of you remember us losing guys to LJ over the past few years. Very often these were PA guys, but it seemed any time LJ sunk his teeth into them (Dorian Johnson, Thomas Holloway), they were goners. He may not have the sex appeal (for lack of a better phrase) that Vrabel had with his youth and Patriot experience, but on the recruiting circuit LJ is a bad, bad man and very often makes the kind of parent/mentor connections that almost nobody in college football really makes. We'll land a prized LJ recruit this year, mark my words.

That would be pretty damn epic if he came here. Think how jealous not only the rest of CFB would be, but TSUN after their recruiting debacle last year.

Hilliard and Cornell mentioned recruiting him. What is the likelihood we could make a big move on this guy, or have we already with his visit? We didn't hear much. Staff?

osu407's picture

Per Birm:

The Ohio State visit last week went very well for Sweat and his family and they're in the conversation. He's a different type of dude, though, very quiet and not interested in all the pomp and circumstance. If the Buckeyes want to land him, it's about what's best for his future and his trust in the coaching staff; being friends with other recruits won't matter much.
