Got another update today from someone close to him. Not looking good imo. The kid he fought was McKinleys starting rb this year It was over a girl. The bad part is this person supposedly saw a cell phone video of it and it was a savage beating. Kid was already knocked unconscious and egw continued to deliver blow after blow. The person i talked to said egw didn't start it but wasn't very optimistic after describing the video to me. I'm salty about this. I was on this board tooting his horn before the start of his sophomore yr and now this. If he doesn't get charges pressed hopefully he can still play somewhere hopefully osu

The issue here is what exactly? Kids fighting over a girl?

If I recall, he was already in Urban's doghouse from another incident a few months prior...

How many second chances do you think the staff is willing to give?

It was a fight. If he had stomped out the girl, I could see why it would be a big deal.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Too bad

No kid came at him first. Jayru snuck a security guard. Completely different imo

If you can't pay the due, don't touch (Jayru) EGW.

Enough with joking, if this is true I would expect UFM to pull his scholly in the near future. Maybe an SEC team will pick him up.

Still trying to crack jokes....

I get the whole "heat of the battle" thing but if you've knocked your adversary OUT anything else you do is just despicable and to me shows low character.

Pass on him.

Pretty much exactly what I was told.....except I heard EGW was not victorious in the fight.

If the other kid started the fight, and EGW lost, why would he lose his scholarship offer?

It is possible that Meyer just doesn't want to be viewed as having a team that is involved in things like this.  The same way Hyde was suspended for three games even though he wasnt charged and Roby suspended one game despite the charges being dropped.  I think he knows that some people have certain opinions about his players, probably mostly dating back to Florida, even if he personally has absolutely nothing to do with players' lapses in judgement during their off time.  The whole Hernandez thing in particular has probably made Meyer want to avoid being seen as some one who looks past his players' actions.

Hahaha.......let's wait for the facts. We seem to have vastly different accounts on this one. Not sure I have every witnessed a fight that someone gets knocked out and is victorious.

This class is borderline laughable. I have no doubt that it will round out as a Top 10 class, but no one would have predicted that it would be at the point that it is at right now

This behavior has been with him all of his high school career. He was in in-school suspension his freshman year right when he got moved up to varsity for Massillon and the playoffs. His sophomore year he was escorted out of a pep rally by the principals and also suspended later that year for a food fight.

The only thing that concerns me is the shop lifting accusation. Fighting, in school suspension and food fights happen. Those can be attributed to immaturity but stealing is concerning. I wouldn't consider it a stretch to think a person willing to steal would except improper benefits.

A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men

Just tell me that he's not another DeVoe Torrence. I hate seeing kids with so much potential, at least the chance to earn a college degree at a top flight institution, throw it all away for stupid, irresponsible, childish reasons.

Kid seems like a thug from everything I've read in the previous comments about what he's done.  Maybe my opinion would be different if it were just one or maybe even two incidents but this seems too far.  I wouldn't want a thug to represent this great University on a national level.  We could use that scholarship on a harder working kid that will make the right decisions and be a great Buckeye.  Not someone who will taint our image.  No thanks.

Yeah, I read somewhere on the internet from people who I don't know that a high school kid got into a fight, I clearly know his character well enough to call him a thug based on that.

If Maurice Clarett can turn it around, I'm pretty sure that a high school kid can too. Keep in mind that it's Urban's job to mentor and guide these kids as they become men. If his high school coach thinks that he can turn it around, I'm sure Urban will make sure he does.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

If Maurice Clarett can turn it around

Ummm.  I'm pretty sure we want people who actually play at Ohio State, rather than turning things around years after.  If they're only going to turn it around after they're out the door, they might not be worth the scholarship.

Well if what everyone is saying is true, that sucks.  However, as of now, much of this is rumors to me because I didn't see a link to anything.  I'll just wait until more information come out.

I was told a year ago by a coworker whose neighbor coaches at McKinley that the kid is a total punk and bad news.  How many red flags do we need?  Time to cut him loose.

 I heard a story from someone I know who heard a story from someone they know that a 17-year-old kid with insane athletic ability acts like a douchebag sometimes, SO MANY RED FLAGS, WAT R U DOIN URBZ, PLS STAHP.

Until Mindy Drayer reviews the tape I won't even consider its legitimacy. Never trust a video of a fight until you get the full Drayer analysis

Oh yeah, Remember when Vrabel and Urban got in a fight?? Gotta love the internet.

If true, absolute shame for the kid who had a bright future also hope the kid whom he beat up is alright.

I don't think Urban will put up with any of this. I think there has been a lot of focus on getting community leaders and quality men. If any (or all) of the rumors are true, I can't see EGW as a Buckeye.

THEOSUfan's picture

For now, I am going to put this into the context of Chris Carter.  Remember - he allegedly/supposedly groped some girl in HS.  Buckeye fans were all over him with "We don't need that here."  Tressel brought him here anyway.

Not a peep out of Chris in a bad way since he went to OSU.  It's hard for me to condemn a 17 year old kid for doing things 17 year olds do - like fight over girls.  Sexual assault, if true, is a whole other thing.

I live a half hour from McKinley HS.  I understand the environment this kid comes from.  At Ohio State he will be able to find plenty of trouble if he's looking for it, but he will also have some good influences   I'm willing, for now, to give him a chance to grow up.  He needs to realize that he can't do what other kids his age are doing.  McDaniels is now his coach at McK.  I'm sure he is getting the realities of the world explained to him in very clear terms.

High school gossip should stay in high school. When I was in HS I didn't always know the  real story. I doubt that hearing 3rd hand accounts are anymore reliable. 

Fights in HS typically don't last that long. A fight over a girl doesn't make someone a terrible "thug" or "punk" it makes them young. Besides, a fight over a girl could mean many things. I grew up with two younger sisters, I fought over those girls often. I once got into a fight because a female friend of mine was being ruthlessly picked on. You could make many arguments about whether the things I did were proper, but my heart and intention were in the right place. I have grown into a successful adult with zero arrests. I am not saying our situations are analogous, rather, that it is near impossible to know the truth of the situation and the context. Further, its abhorrent to fling allegations at young people like "thug" or  "punk" based on third hand information. We used to not tolerate that sort of thing around here. I hope our standards aren't slipping. 

NOTE: I am not criticizing reporting what you heard in the way the topic poster did. I do take offense to some of the comments.

For those that criticize the hearsay posts, this past year like all of them have been true - EGW multiple mishaps, Noah Spence, Hyde, Etc. While we need to give these kids the benefit of doubt, please keep in mind sites like this exist to discuss Buckeye football and its players. Some take it too far and convict these young men, but others merely report rumblings from pretty decent sources within their communities. Many have broke news before many Buckeye sites.
