I just watched it, in the video: Booker, Dixon, Campbell, Hilliard, Kwon, McLaurin, Holmes.  They're dancing and attempting to be ridiculous lmao.  Hilliard is laughing, he clearly enjoys their company.

Lol at myself for explaining an IG video.

I am telling you right now...Hubbard at one OLB...Hilliard at the other...Kwon in the middle....and have Lee as either rush LB or Hubbard as rush LB..and we are set. 

I dont always root for college athletics, but when i do (which is most of the time) I choose THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

Lets wait till Booker gets over 230 to even start having that conversation..At 215-220 he runs and hits like a truck! I'll take that on the 2nd on special teams and back up LB to start his freshman year.  What happens with mutant-maker Mikey will dictate where he ends up.

EvanstonBuckeye's picture

Can we all agree that Hilliard's (and to some degree Jerome Baker's) recruitment is as much about image as position? We need him in this class for prestige, not for depth necessarily. We've had several loaded classes at LB, but need to win the battle for the best talent in the state and a head-to-head with ND.

One guess that I have is that, based on the pics above, Sam Hubbard is a dude you want prospective recruits to be hanging with. Hilliard and Kirk look pretty damn content.

SilverBullet-98's picture

Baker is a Athelete/LBer.

He is the type of talent you find a spot for from RB to LBer to slot.

The roster's get no easier at ND, FSU, Florida or Miami.

I wouldn't say that...we haven't seen what any of these kids can actually do at this level and especially under the lights.  We think we're loaded but who knows.  Baker and Hilliard could actually turn out to be the best of the bunch.  Outside of Shazier we haven't had anything special at LB lately.

Jamal Marcus??? Sigh...

Jamal Marcus what?  He isn't a LB, even if he was kind of recruited as one.

"Birdman Hand Rub" Hilliard,Kirk,Cornell,Baker and Scott. The flood gates would bust open. I think you'd see Clark reconsider and Harris would soon follow. This could be an epic class!!!

Screw Clark.  He has said no twice.  He is going to sitting behind Jake Butt of Pick North for the next three years anyhow.

I agree. To me that bridge was burned with the totality of everything: multiple commitments, saying tOSU was dope and then committing to Mishitgan, and finally saying he would have committed to MSU. EFF him.

Can confirm, saw a bunch of players and a few recruits on High Street last night.

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.

LoveTheeND's picture

He certainly seems to be enjoying himself. 

Of course I hope that ND could pull him, but regardless of the outcome, I don't think there will be much for either side to be upset about in the end. Hilliard is handling his recruitment exceptionally, all business, doing his due diligence on both sides. If only every recruit handled things so thoroughly, there would be much less heartbreak for those of us that follow recruiting!

I agree with ND above that Hilliard is handling his recruitment well. He has shown nothing but class, and he seems to be one of these guys who naturally exhibits leadership.

Every pic I've ever seen with Hilliard and any Buckeyes, he always seems to have a huge smile. Can't read too much into it, I know, but he really seems to enjoy his time at OSU.

Haha I don't know about the new Vrabel...

However, it is really cool to see how vested his parents are in the program their son is part of.  I can't recall another set of parents being so active in the recruiting aspect. I just mean trumpeting the programs positives and reaching out to other parents.

WesPatterson23's picture

Yeah that's why I'm get nervous about all these stars coming in. Dante will probably play after Perry graduates (WILL) and Raekwon will probably start next year, then at SAM those two guys are just freshmen. So playing time could be hard to come by.

sharks's picture

A good problem to have.  If the Hubbard kid can plug in at TE, would lessen the logjam at LB and put him on the fast track to playing time as well.
