That's what Sweat and Nick Bosa/Cornell could very well be

Did somebody say Nick Bosa?

"I remember one time Nick Bosa took his family to Sea World... they were watching Shamu the whale when Bosa got splashed! So Bosa yells, 'I'm Nick Bosa and no one gets me wet!' So he climbs into the tank, grabs Shamu and throws the whale into the audience, splashes him and yells, 'How do you like it?!' And then damn if Bosa didn't step in there and finish the show!"

"Bosa's family crest is a picture of a barracuda eating Neil Armstrong!"

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Is there some sort of Nick Bosa running inside joke I don't know about?

Nick Bosa does not wear a condom. There is no such thing as protection from Nick Bosa

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures  Nick Bosa has allowed to live.

An upcoming Moeller sophomore took a trip to OSU for a one day camp and he said all the facilities are finished including the locker room, Josh Sweat better prepare to be blown away. The kid I talked to said the facilities were unreal, and he is not much of an Ohio State fan.

FYI pretty sure this is instead of FNL.

But I'm for that. Instead of there being tons of other prospects there, he'll be the only one, able to hang out with Jalyn Holmes and Curtis Grant and have the red carpet treatment.

Goal of this visit is to secure an official.

Agreed hayze. It's all about relationships. On a side note, damn VA puts out top level talent. Hand, peppers, etc

Peppers is from NJ.

Read on 247 that he spent some time at Tennessee and a few hours at UGA and he liked the UGA visit the best, but Virginia Tech still very much in the picture. Hopefully spending a whole day with Johnson and Meyer will put us at the top.

Could you imagine a DL haul of Dre'Mont Jones, Josh Sweat, Jashon Cornell, and one or two of Gallimore, Wilkins and Settle? On paper, that'd probably be the best DL class of all-time in recruiting, right?

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.

I want OSU to get Gallimore bad in this class. Kid has absolutely ridiculous quickness and explosion off the ball for a DT.

I think we're still in it for Beckner too.  

On a side note related to Beckner, does anyone else find it funny that he may go to Missouri (Crystal Ball leader) and he's from East St. Louis (NOT the St. Louis that's in Missouri)?

I mean, East St Louis is also not in Ohio...

Yes, I know . I wasn't saying that's why we were in it.  I just assumed he was predicted to go to Mizzou b/c that was his hometown school.  Did a double take and realized he is from Illinois.

How did we end up in Illinois?

Calgarybuck's picture

Not the safest place to be in Illinois that's for sure but they have produced many 4* over the past 5-6 classes..

Killer nuts's picture

East St Louis is technically in Illinois but it's literally across the river from St. Louis, Missouri (hence the name, east St. Louis). It's not a stretch to call Missouri his hometown school

Great getting him on campus now. Big time visit.

305Buck's picture

At first the Virginia Tech 247 insider said that Sweat wasn't going to make a visit to Ohio State, then after Sweat's mom confirmed the visit is on, he said he doesn't think Ohio State will get a serious look.

Yeah a kid is going to make a full day visit to a school on his own dime because he isn't serious. Having seen each schools facilities, city life, and campus, which Sweat says will all play a huge part in his decision, Virginia Tech doesn't come close to Ohio State.

That account is fake, Sweat doesn't do social media. But look at the date, that was at the beginning of the month when he was planning on visiting for FNL, he has now changed that to this coming Wednesday. I read an article where he mentioned that he and his parents wants to get all visits over asap and this may be his last visit for the summer, unless he finds time after The Opening to visit FSU. Even if he does visit FSU, it's too far away from home so he isn't ending up there. This will be an Ohio State/Virginia Tech/UGA battle.

I saw the date, I just picked the last one with Ohio State in it. I knew the below account was fake but didn't know there were two fake Josh Sweat accounts. Good to know, thanks.

Just don't see any way they take 6 DL with Jones already in

Brutus' Left Nut's picture

I feel like if the last two to commit were Beckner (2nd to last to commit) and Sweat (last to commit) we'd take 6.  I think even with 5 DLs on board the staff wouldn't say no to Sweat.

Possible?  Sure.  Likely?  No.   But, I'd be thrilled with two or three of them.

Ohio State is really no further from his home than Georgia or Tennessee. Va Tech is somewhat closer, but in any case he is looking at schools at least a 5-hour drive away.

Sweat will be bringing his mom, brother and a teammate. May bring more people but that's all for now.

Hopefully Meyer links him up with Kwon, Grant and Holmes.

That earthquake you feel is the trembling knees of offensive linemen at the thought of Bosa and Sweat on the same team.

Does anyone think the possible commit of fullwood to Vtech maybe pushes Sweat away? They already have Lewis (4-star DE) committed and it seems like Sweat is our number one DE on the board

Their conference schedule is really weak. Florida State and Clemson are both absent. Miami is probably their toughest game. So in other words, I'm not too surprised by this statement.

Sweat is going to more than likely be a late decider.  Getting him on campus before fall is very good for us, if we secure an official visit.  I'd say we have a very good chance.  If he can get a good relationship with Coach Johnson and who ever is recruiting him(I haven't even looked, it very well could be Johnson), plus see the success of our D-Line this year.  We're potentially about to put 2 1st rounders in the draft from the D-Line.  I'd say we have a great chance of landing him.  Sorry for my optimism, but when you can get a player of Jadaveon Clowney stature coming out of High School sign me up.
