Justin Hilliard has visited Ohio State a number of times already, but that doesn't mean Ohio State is slowing down their recruitment of him any. Even though he visited last weekend, Coombs and Fickell will be at his school on Thursday.

Ohio State has also sent him a some flyers/artwork recently that he seems to like:

Flavo

I didn't realize that he was a coach.

He could be the leader we desperately need in this class.Keep the heat on him.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

I agree with most people that if you only need to keep 1 Ohio guy this year in state it's him. I am a huge EGW fan, but this kids the most important one.

We gotta have Baker too though.

Sounds like the odds of landing Hilliard have greatly increased.

That top picture is extremely similar to one we sent to Kwon and that obviously worked out well for us.

I think it is the exact same except the name.

He and Raekwon will be the bash brothers.

Good vibes here.

Fitting post from Gray Box.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

If I were to make a recruiting photo for Hilliard, do you think they would use it? Or am I being that guy? I have something pretty cool in mind.

Please, I repeat, PLEASE do not send him anything yourself.

Send suggestions to Sammy Silverman please

There are other options than sending something to Sammy. Sammy is great but there is no reason he should be the only one getting credit for creative ideas. If this guy has an idea he can post it here or other places without sending it to the recruit.

I just hope no Buckeyes wrote him a song:

That is honestly pathetic.

New summer anthem, I'll be bumping this along with the rest of the "Malibu's Most Wanted" playlist.

The answer may not be at the bottom of a bottle, but it never hurts to check.

Is this that Rebecca Black?  Sam talent coach at least.

Awesome picture ------------ love that he is really starting to get to know the players and the campus

If Ohio State misses out on Hilliard, it sure wasn't because they didn't try their best. The staff has put the full court press on.

I really hope they are doing the same for Jerome Baker. Out of all Ohio kids I think he has the highest ceiling.

I just hope this time spent on these kids pays off and to not have them commit elsewhere, and then miss out on guys we should have spent time on..

All part of the game ...win some, lose some. These guys are worth spending time on.

Hilliard needs to be a Buckeye...period.

Thank the Maker that I was born in Ohio, cradle of coaches, US Presidents, confederate-stomping Generals, and home of The Ohio State University Football Buckeyes!

I just hope he feels Ohio State is the place for him.

He has great options, because he is a high quality person and player. Ohio State NEEDS to recruit these types.

As Ryan Shazier proved... the NFL loves the product Ohio State puts out and LB coach Fickell.

Don't you read the blogs?? Fickell sucks

SilverBullet-98's picture

I don't know if your being sarcastic, but Fickell is a EXCELLENT recruiter and LB Coach.

Wasn't ready to be a head coach at OHIO STATE... Let alone a Defensive Coordinator without full Authority of the defense.

So I don't buy into the hyperbole that, " Luke Fickell sucks ".

  Did he make a mistake with Mitchell?  Maybe.

 Not starting players who where better and ready could be Fickell or it could be Fickell taking the bullet.

It happens all the time, especially politics.

But Luke Fickell is and was a quality Ohio State Buckeye. Forever Scarlet Buckeye.

 

p.s. Just show the Italics meaning SARCASM, sometimes I miss that, eyes just don't see it sometimes.

That's actually the Midland Indians.  It's a sports organization in Cincinnati.  I know they're typically very good at baseball.
