I know I know, 2015 isn't anywhere near done and here I am talking about 2016. Well, it's because 247 released the top 247 for 2016 and Ohio came in with 12 kids. All these kids are rated 4 star and above, with 2 of them being 5 stars.
I honestly just wanted to get some input from anyone including staff on how the Buckeyes are looking with these kids, early impressions, and the likelihood that they do become part of our 2016 class. Maybe make a little fun of it and take some bets on who commits first to Urban. Going to be a good year for Urban to hopefully keep that fence up and keep the top Ohio kids in state.
5* OT Liam Eichenberg- Offered- 86% Crystal ball OSU
5* OT Tommy Kraemer-Offered (Elder stand up, Altiora!) Buckeyes named early leader
4* ATH Brendan Ferns- No Offer- 50/50 Crystal ball for PSU/WVU
4 SDE Prince Sammons- No Offer-100% Mich. crystal ball
4* WR Justin Layne- No Offer- 67% CB OSU
4* OLB Ethan Tucky-No Offer- 100% OSU CB
4* WDE Jonathan Cooper- No Offer- 100 OSU CB
4* OLB Zach Sandwisch- No Offer
4* TE Jake Hausmann-No Offer
4* ATH Tyrece Speaight- No Offer- 100% OSU CB
4* PRO QB Messiah DeWeaver-No Offer
4* TE Luke Farrell-No offer
With obviously with Urban liking to go after national guys too, its probably expected not all of these kids become Buckeyes.

Btw, this is a great year for the big guys on the line. DL/OT has a plethora of talent.
