For the 2015 class that is...With Ben Edwards shunning the Buckeyes for Auburn this makes Jamel Deans commitment on Dec 1, 2013 as our last. This has been, by far, the longest drought without a commit since I have been following tOSU football. Not panicking but this has me curious to say the least. There has to be a light at the end of the tunnel here. Who will be the guy to break this slump?

It's like some people don't even check if there are 152 other topics already created on this site before creating another one.

I'm pretty sure that Meyer will

  • not recruit well this year
  • not have a top 40 class this year
  • be fired for incompetence before the michigan game because of the shitty job he is doing recruiting.

I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. We aren't looking at weeks until our next commitment, we at looking at months. We won't be getting a commitment until late June or July. Don't be surprised if Ohio State has have 5 commits in the months of December.

The guys we are in on are all deciding at all star games, at the end of the season, or waiting until signing day.

My mistake. I corrected Clemson to Auburn.

Buckeye_in_SEC_country's picture

Ben Edwards flipped to Auburn... Not Clemson.

 

I keep telling myself that more kids have committed but Urban has asked them to all commit on the same day so we pick up 15 kids in one day.  This is the way I rationalize our recruiting slump.

I like this theory. It will help me sleep at night. Despite not having any new commits 

AtomBuckeye's picture

That's exactly what I'm thinking! We have some high profile kids who have gave a silent commitment and these kids will just soak up the spot light until their ready to go public.

Minor correction, Ben Edwards flipped to Auburn, not Clemson

I'm right there with you bud and no offense, but I'm really tired of seeing these type of posts. 

Off topic, I just saw an advertisement for a team building seminar at MSU with a picture of Mark Dantonio on 11W.  I hope you charged them triple for that, I'm still pissed about that B1G title game debacle.

Technically Darius Slade was our last football commit, but for the 2015 class, yes it was Jamel Dean.

Be patient its all about quality not quantity, Urban hasn't let us down yet and I don't expect him to this year either. Its May 1st, the class of 2015 doesn't sign for another 9 MONTHS!

Ohio State only has 15-16 scholarships open right now for 2015. They're being selective. I think we will see a run on commitments in July-August. Perhaps sooner.

Thanks Jordan, that is really helpful to keep in mind.

They only have 15-16 scholarships!?!???!

Can we just delete these threads as they pop up? I love having an active 11w community, but come on. Enough's enough, and talking about it does nothing.

+2 HS
sivaDavis's picture

Honestly, with so many days left until college football starts. 11W is the fix I need everyday until then. So more thread posts that generate discussions and comments are alright by me, no matter how many times they come up or are repeated. Makes for a good show.

Is this really a forum and ppeople are concerned about this? It's the first day of May and signing day is how long away.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

rjsmitty's picture

Your right...why should we be concerned? It is only May and signing day is 9 months away. Meanwhile, in Alabama, 15 top flight recruits have given their verbal to Nick Saban. One 5* and eleven 4*s. But hey, Bama is probably waiting for the really good guys who will play in the All Star games, like we are, til they real in their really big fish. And lets not fool ourselves...everybody in College football gauges themselves after Bama cuz they win rings. Hell yes I'm concerned. Maybe we can get that long snapper to commit soon and get the ball rolling again!

Interesting info for those who are concerned with recruiting and not having a top class:

2010 class that ranked #20. Those players had a large role in going 24-2 over these past two seasons. Their names? Carlos Hyde, Christian Bryant, Philly Brown, Andrew Norwell, Drew Basil, Bradley Roby and Johnathan Hankins.
