Hearing he will move his commitment up to sometime next month. Seems to be trending TOSU! He grew up a Buckeye fan. He would be a great get! And might make some other WR targets look at us and commit early

By "hearing" do you mean you read the 247Sports article on the subject. If so, I am "hearing" the same things. : )

Seriously, it sounds like a OSU-PSU battle. Considering that Urban Meyer is actively part of this recruitment, one has to feel good about the Buckeyes chances.

Actually just scanned through the article because I'm not a member. If there is anything I'm missing please add what u can.

Urban all most always gets the guys he wants to part of the greatest university in American. Great get if he commits.

Getting Jefferson would be sweet. Didn't know PSU was that high up on his board. Figured it would be more of a Tennessee-OSU battle.

SCOTTC.

have to think about Franklin's relationship with southern kids, especially Tennessee prospects given his Vandy years.

I'll see your Stump and raise you a Ridley... but either way OSU is certainly living the life!

I still wouldn't mind OSU offering C.J. Sanders at some point. I'd love to see another legacy, and speedster, come to OSU. I'd hate to see him go to and SEC school and tear it up.

On a side note, apparently many MBA practices in Nashville are fun b/c Herbie and Sanders sling the ball around...throwback to 1992 Bucks!

If van Jefferson really is trending our way that would be incredible news. Hard to understand why he is not rated higher. He seems to have it all to me.

Kids dad is an nfl wr coach and questions the wr use in urbans offense. Urban has 7 wr in the nfl right now though so if urb can convince dad i think he's a buckeye

Can't wait to see the first GRAY BOX in the new site!

DefenceWinsChampionships's picture

I'm sorry to be the one to break this to you, but it seems the gray box has gone the way of the Dodo... We already had the site when Ben Edwards committed and, sadly, there was no gray box to be found. Its like drinking a glass of orange juice and realizing you accidentally poured yourself sunny D... its still refreshing, but you wish you just had your good old OJ back.

I'm,kind hoping that it'll be back ! For me, at least,  It's an 11W trademark.

FWIW saw a bunch of people are crystal balling him to UT the past few days. Not sure if there's legit info on his interest switching or one person had a gut feeling and people are following suit. I honestly think the longer his recruitment goes on and if he doesn't make it back up for a follow up visit, the worse for the good guys.

I'm starting to wonder if OSU gets a receiver in this class unfortunately. IMO, seems like Jefferson really wanted to play for the Bucks, but his parents do not want him to go there, and now he's kind of leaning away from going there.

I really hope I'm wrong, because they could really use a receiver with his size and route running ability.

We are top two for Peete

I've seen that re: Peete for a while, it just seems like we don't hear much from him. He's probably smart enough to just not talk much about it.

We don't hear anything about him because he's not focusing on recruiting right now.

There's a good possibility EGW plays WR for us. If we swing and miss on Kirk and Jefferson, I would like to see us make a run at Alex Stump if he doesn't flip to Stanford

Many thanks for bumping this thread up rather than starting a new one

We need a tall WR, enough of the speedy 5'10s.... Jefferson is the one -- has the size and exceptional route-running

I would love to see Peete, Stump and Kirk in this class. Jefferson is planning on visiting Ohio State on July 16th, but I think his father will win out on this one and the kid will end up at Tennessee or Georgia.

That's so sad... It shouldn't be the father's choice. It's not his recruitment process.

I like Stump's tape, plus he's 6'5. I would love to have him and Peete in this class. Two 6'5 receivers in this class? Yes please.

Only thing that made me nervous about Peete is 247 gave him a 4/10 on the hands rating which screams consistent drops to me at least.

24/7 has him at 6'3.

Unless Stump camps, he's probably not going to get an offer.

Hudl says 6'5 so that's where I got that. Stump has said osu has already seen everything they need to see of him and he's not camping again. If he gets an offer, then he gets one.
