Love to see Nick Bosa follow in his brothers foot steps as a Buckeye.

Nick is actually the one I've been most excited to hear about. I've been checking on news on him since last Spring when I heard Joey had a younger brother. Hope big brother can help reel him in.

Bosa's mom told me that Nick is by far the better player and that he has always been the bigger Ohio State fan. Can't wait to see him in the S&G.

Wow, that's impressive. I knew that the consensus from the "in" crowd was that Nick was further along than Joey at his age. I hadn't heard that he was the bigger Buckeye fan. He's the one out of this class that I've been watching and that I'm really pulling to land in Columbus. I'll actually be very disappointed if he isn't in the 2016 class. Now let me help you get to that 100 HS mark.

So, when did you happen to meet Bosa's mom? Just curious...

You've got to like another Buckeye TE named Jake!

The man who puts on his armor should not boast like the man who lives long enough to take it off.

I would really like to be cheering for Eddie McDoom someday.

I obviously hope we get Bosa, I just heard somewhere that he might have USC bugging him? I hope he is a bigger Buckeye fan and wants to come to tOSU.

Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it.

Xavier Gantt is now a strong Verbal to GTech.

Was really hoping we had a shot to get Saivion Smith on campus, is the No. 1 CB and is teammates with current Buckeye commit Tyler Gerald @ IMG.  Was being reported yesterday that Smith intended to visit Columbus (TBD), but this morning fresh off a visit to LSU over the weekend it's being reported he will announce at 1:00 today.  Many sites are reporting he will commit(Clemson was the perceived leader), but ESPIN is saying it's just a Top 5, so that is what I am hoping for.  My Dream DB class is Savion Smith (Fl), Jared Mayden(Tx), Patrice Rene (Va, via Canada), Jordan Fuller (NJ, listed as Athlete) & Brandon Burton (Ca).

Rivals still has Emmit Gooden as uncommitted, but THIS article says differently.

Thought that article was from this year. He decommitted. My bad.

Is Robbie Robinson a class of 2016 or 2017 recruit? This article from last year says he is going into his junior year.

Would love to see eli stove get in the class. My son plays football with him and it would be amazing to see a local kid playing on Saturdays for the Buckeyes. Long shot, but a guy can hope.
