I second both points on your points. Thanks Gene!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Soon you all should be looking out for a freshman named Ra'Von Bonner from Sycamore High School in Cincy, just got his first offer from UC but the guy is about 5'11 and fast as hell. Played varsity this year in a division one program.

Keyshawn Johnson Jr. hasn't been offered by USC yet? Time for Cousin Michel to sway him Buckeye before his dad can flip him Trojan.

Actually Keyshawn Sr. has had very positive views and opinions when it comes to tOSU.  He has followed Michael Thomas' career and has been very proactive - going to games and supporting the OSU coaching staff on Michael's development.  I don't think he would be against his son going to OSU at all.

I think tOSUwould be Key Sr.'s second choice. You gotta remember USC was his alma matter and he was a God there playing WR in the 90s.

This doesn't always work out for the kid. Remember Duron Carter or Marcus Vick? I think living under your dads/brothers shadow can be a bad thing.

Redlegs1000's picture

Here's a good little blurb about the his recruitment. I could have sworn I heard somewhere that Sr. didn't want him going to USC because he didn't want him being in his shadow, or didn't want other players to say Jr. didn't earn it, blah blah.

You felt a movement in The Force yesterday about us missing you I assume?

Good to have your updates again.

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

I second this sentiment.

GENE!  We have and will continue to miss you!  Come home for good, don't make me sing to you!

I don't always downvote, but I do always downvote a Michigan fan trolling the Buckeye boards.
