Ohio State football and basketball recruiting.
Per 247sports Steve Wiltfong
Same time as Hilliard.
Two for 1? Fingers are indeed crossed.
Now they just need to get Harris and Kirk to commit with them and do it by throwing up an OHIO
Saw this too. I can only imagine this is good news for the bucks. Wednesday could end up being pretty special.
We'll this could get exciting, he's hoping we have a great Wednesday
This has to be great news considering his cancelled visits
Breaking: Five-Star DE Jashon Cornell to announce on Wednesday: #Buckeyes #Irish #Spartans #Hawkeyes #PennState http://t.co/JOLj1vNejJ
— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) June 29, 2014
@SWiltfong247: I made a #Buckeyes @247CrystalBall prediction for five-stars Jashon Cornell & Justin Hilliard on June 1. http://t.co/TlLk3VWqlf #OhioState
Trying not to read too much into this. Hoping both announcements. On the same day means good news for the good guys. Staying optimistic!!!!
A win over TTUN is one of the most important annual milestones I can think of!
Does that say Hawkeyes?

Well this has to be great. He's cancelled his other visits, so he's gotta be a buckeye, and he's announcing at the same time as Hilliard, so he's gonna be a buckeye too. Too bad Harris isn't committing too, but I think I'm getting greedy.
I am tempering my emotions but boy howdy am I hoping for the best
You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.
The two of them must know where the other's going to school, and it must be the same school or else I don't see Cornell doing this. This is great news for the Buckeyes, IMO. Gonna be a helluva day!
If those two commit we'll move from the 25th ranked to 14th ranked class on 247, and less than 3 'recruiting' points or whatever away from being top 10.
LSU would still have a better class by numbers as they sit just ahead of us by about .98 points with what would be the same amount of commits (12)... and then everyone else in the top 10 have 13 or more commits, and let's say Scott is #13 for us we would move up to the 8th best class passing FSU(13 commits) ND (14 commits) UGA (13 commits) and only trialing teams that would have 4-7 more commits than us.
I'm beginning to think we'll land a top 5 class again when it's all said and done.
The only thing that really blows about this is that I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WEDNESDAY.
I have off Wednesday. Hopefully have good news that morning!
I was just thinking the same thing. I am off Wednesday and coul spend it celebrating
Steve Wiltfong still feeding the Nittany Lions hope. "I still expect Cornell to visit Penn State in July no matter what his decision is on Wednesday."
Uh the kid has already canceled two visits to Penn State, I guess they are going for three.

I am more worried about Iowa then Notre Dame honestly. Iowa was Cornell's first offer.
Edit: Boykin is also committing, likely Notre Dame. I now think it is a tossup between ND and OSU. Then again Boykin isn't one of the bros.
Trust in UFM
I'm not too worried about Iowa, he hasn't visited them since January.
If we don't get them, I hope Iowa does. No Msu, no ND, no MU.
Life's daily struggle is choosing between saying F--ck-it, or soldiering on with your responsibilities.
add Sweat, Scott, Kirk, and Harris to this class, and find a DT and a couple of OL and lets start on even a better class for the super 16.
Pardon my ignorance, but was it reported what time these 2 are announcing on Wednesday?
How Firm Thy Friendship....
Five-stars Justin Hilliard and Jashon Cornell will announce their decisions live on http://t.co/rE8U9vhq1E on Wednesday starting at 10am.
— Tom VanHaaren (@TomVH) June 29, 2014
Thank you sir
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
10am on ESPN.com. One after the other.
I think I read Hilliard is set to make his announcement at 10am, does Cornell have a time set?
Will it be streaming on 11W?!?!?!
I season my simple food with hunger
I hope we land both of them!!
Wasserman's article on the announcements. Would be a sweet way to kick of the holiday weekend.
Thanks to all that posted the time!
I like this it's very pro buckeye, but the fact that Boykin changed his date is worrisome since he's more of an irish lean from what I've read, hopefully they aren't all committing together
Crap, that's not good.
Wait, on ESPN?
Is OSU about to be trolled?
The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...
New primetime network T.V. timeslot: 10am Wednesdays.
Super Double Spectacular Wednesdays!
I feel a two-fer coming this way.
Usually you pay double for that kind of action Cotton
Both of them giving a verbal to OSU on "the world leader" at the same time. That network could implode and cave in upon itself.
lets go bucks!!
Crystal Ball it:
My birthday is Tuesday, but I will gladly accept 5* gifts through Wednesday. Exceptions must be made.
It could be the best belated birthday gifts in a long long time.
Happy Early birthday brother
And my birthday is in February but i will gladly accept these two gifts.
Buckeye fan from PA
Has anyone heard what time the Miles Boykin announcement will be?? That could be a good indicator as to Notre Dames chances in all of this. Also don't be totally shocked if 1-2 more Buckeye targets commit next week as well. Going to be an interesting few days to watch the Crystal Balls over at 247 and to listen to the insiders here at 11W. Should be fun!!!!
He's not sure yet. Don't count TSUN out for him. I heard at some point that his family was very into them.
If Boykin announces at a different time and not on ESPN with Hilliard and Cornell then I will feel better about it as Ohio State is not one of his finalists.
Even with Clark committing there? I don't see that happening...
Got a bad feelin on this one.....hope I'm wrong......Boykin changed his announcement date to Wed. As well it Sounds like he is leaning ND or Mich. St. Not holding my breath either way!
Every time I set my DVR to record Biggest Loser......It always records Wolverine Football Games!
still wary about ND but I, like many of us here, am feeling buckeyes. Could be a huge day for us.
Looks like Christmas may be coming early boys.
Man, I hope my Monday morning meeting doesn't go over like it often does. I can't sit and check my phone while there, so I'm crossing my fingers that this is a quick meeting, lol.
That'd be an awfully long meeting if it goes through Wednesday.
Man, thanks for catching that...okay, I obviously wasn't thinking clearly.
Wasn't Cornell the first 5 star & #1 overall ranked player for 2014 on a recruiting site last year ?
I could've sworn when they released their first 2014 rankings, some site had him as the #1 overall prospect. I can't remember if it was ESPN or Scout.
Yes and I'm pretty sure it was ESPN.
Wouldn't worry too much about the Boykin announcement imo. Cornell & hilliard have talked about playing together. And with the info that cornell hasn't made a return trip to ND and even cancelled one, and possibly turning away full wood because of numbers seems promising. I think hilliard relationship with mcmillan and Damien harris speak volumes too where this is leaning
I think we can all agree we want both of these young men to be Buckeyes. But, did you know Jessica does too?
Wow - I'll stop right there !!!
I keep watching to see if the GIF goes a little further the next time. One more time.... wait, one more....
Who could possibly downvote this?
A homosexual maybe
The Guy That Wears Women's Underpanties?
Saw yet ANOTHER Chris Clark "bro why not Michigan??" Tweet. Seems to me he's pretty desperate to get others there yet doesn't have much to back up his words. Continuing to say why not Michigan instead of giving legit reasons why it's a place to be would be more useful, IMO.
But whatever, closing the deal on these 2 come Wednesday!
Let me help Chris out.
Why not TSUN?
1. Brady Hoke brings in great talent, he then wastes that talent in route to going 7-6
2. UFM coaches the Buckeyes not the TSUN
3. Larry Johnson coaches the Buckeye DL not TSUN DL
4. Unlike at TSUN, here, we beat our rivals
5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uc3Ui3UVuT4 (NSFW)
Also, "OSU is dope bro!"
It sure is. Are you going to the Navy opener? I'm moving to your neck of the woods after the bar. I'll be there and I have some extra tix.
Already bought my tickets. Still unsure about the Maryland game. I am really going to try to get to VT next year though.
I was at the Toledo Mud Hens vs. Columbus Clippers baseball game last night here in Toledo(Clippers won, 4-0. Sad.) and saw some woman wearing this shirt. She happened to be very well endowed, and since I had a couple brewskis in me, I found the courage to compliment her on her nice choice of clothing.
Could be a smokescreen to throw EVERYONE off.....never know with these young whipper snappers now a days !
Sorry for DP
It's a common thread around here..........
With the way Clark's recruitment played out (or playing out), I would think that potential recruits find him incredulous... just my opinion...
The only way I see Chris Clark having any success recruiting for TTUN is if he takes this approach.
Minnesotan defenders have been good to us.
Please pretty please with sugar on top
stark county football
Hopefully we will be doing this pose on Wednesday.
Poor form Mr. H. I'm not sure what's going on with the second O's hands either.
Do you guys know how big this is right before The Opening?
Chris Clark is bummed out that he missed his opportunity to be a part of something great.
I'm sure Urban would still accept his commitment.
Early birthday present for me ... Hope these two are buckeyes
we're either going to have the biggest GIF party ever or a total meltdown....can't wait for Wednesday
Positive GIF party please!!!!!!!!!!!!
The look and the dancing moves Ashley is making is how Chris Clark is looking at our recruiting class.
I think this one is in the bag. Both Hilliard and Cornell are going to be Buckeyes, count on it. Not only do they both want to play together, but they also want to play with Harris and Harris is not going to Notre Dame. Remember when Cornell went to C-bus a month ago and was blown away? I think he gave a "hush-hush" verbal then, that's why Fullwood couldn't get a commitable offer from OSU.
Bank on it BuckeyeNation..........Hilliard and Cornell are all BUCKEYES!!!!!
3 commitments coming Wednesday from Midwest #Rivals250 prospects, some theme music for #OhioState fans for the day pic.twitter.com/LKeBxFZhP8
— Marc Givler (@MarcGivlerBG) June 29, 2014
Forgive my ignorance...who is the third that we will be missing out on?
WR Miles Boykin.
I'm totally fine with that outcome...Silver Bullets in the house.
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.
Does anyone know when Harris is commiting? I could see him moving it up to Wednesday to commit with these guys since they have such a relationship.
For the sake of this website, let's hope not! If that were to happen I'm not sure the site could survive a GIF party of that proportion!
This is gonna be one great weekend!!!! These two were must gets IMO! Plus the cincy pipeline is opening! Major IMO.
For what it's worth, Notre Dame fans don't seem very optimistic.
A couple people over there are saying Cornell is overrated. Thoughts on that?
I don't think he's overrated. He has dominated every camp he's attend and his high school plays in the hardest league in Minnesota. I think his relationship with Hilliard will only make him better, given Justin's work ethic.
Cornell is NOT overrated. Cretin is a top team, and he is by far the top player in Minnesota. From interviews I have read in the local papers, he is a fine young man with a good sense of perspective.
Cognitive dissonance associated with a recruit picking a team other than your own. We did the same thing with Gibson. Cornell has been tearing up camps this year and looking to be worth his ranking.
St. Paul (MN) Cretin-Derham five-star defensive lineman Jashon Cornell defeated offensive linemen with a variety of pass-rushing moves. It was another strong performance for Cornell, who showed out at the Nike Football Training Camp in Columbus a couple weeks ago.
It's kinda funny that all fan bases have the same general thought process when they feel player going elsewhere. ''Doesn't want to put in the work" & "primadoña"
I would like to see the guys from 11W chime in on this news.
Are you guys taking Sunday off or what?
FWIW, Bill Greene, Kurelic, Birm, and Wiltfong all expect these two to be Buckeyes. I feel real good about our chances now. I'll say 90% sure that these two are Buckeyes.
Gleitman as well. Looking good for the good guys.
Couple of Minnesota insiders CB'd Cornell to the Buckeyes today as well. Maybe the hometown guys know something?
Mike Farrell thinks so too:
My guess is #buckeyes @buckeyesMJ: @rivalsmike Hilliard......Buckeyes or Irish?
— Mike Farrell (@rivalsmike) June 26, 2014
Obvious good news for #Buckeyes @buckeye1421: @rivalsmike Hilliard and Cornell announcing same time same day thoughts?
— Mike Farrell (@rivalsmike) June 29, 2014
#Buckeyes get two, I think #NotreDame gets Boykin @michaelwyant32: @rivalsmike u think buckeyes get all 3
— Mike Farrell (@rivalsmike) June 29, 2014
#Buckeyes are going to have a really good month recruiting. #OhioState
— Mike Farrell (@rivalsmike) June 30, 2014
It's going to be a really good day for some school...hopefully it's Ohio State.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill
Way too many inappropriate comments racing through my mind about this GIF.
Didnt Boykin also have a offer from tOSU? Anyone know if he visited or whats up with his situation.
Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
Yeah but we were facing an uphill battle from the beginning. It was always between ND, MSU and Michigan. Ohio State got in too late and I believe he will be picking ND. The Core 6 twitter account sent out two tweets yesterday that read "Expecting commitment #15 on Wednesday," "the ND and Core 6 pipeline is real."
If you put stock in the "Twitter-sphere," then the comment by Burrell re: a big July for he and his friends is a positive for OSU. Who knows? Hopefully Hilliard and Cornell do not think that "OSU is dope, bro."
Thanks 305 at least we are still in the game even if the odds arent as good as we would like.
Probably doesn't mean shit but he followed Tyler Green today.
Our Honor Defend!
FWIW George Brown Jr from Cincy Winton Woods, OH just tweeted he sees ND getting 3 commits on Wednesday. Idk if that means he thinks Hilliard & Cornell are picking ND or if he is thinking Boykin & 2 others. I highly doubt he's right but maybe he knows something considering Hilliard is from cincy. Either way its just an Ohio kid giving his opinion but i thought it was interesting
305, are you ok? You went from predicting Ohio State at 90% to saying Notre Dame is the favorite in the span of 3 hours :)
He was talking about Miles Boykin
My bad, you were referring to Boykin.
Just hope, regardless of his decision, no one goes mental on him or about him. I am really confident about this which makes me nervous that he won't be a Buckeye but just thinking, if he does go ND, no one loses their minds.
Better warn my Mrs. that we're gonna celebrate hump day.
You should do that anyway!
I like your style Knar
The beginning of the work week, unfortunately.
My gut says ND....I hope I'm wrong
When the owner of the site posts a nice sarcastic Kirk gif it makes me feel so much better about the situation before us. We pull in Hilliard and Cornell and we are talking about a snowball that could roll all the way to #1 eventually. We lose out on both and we are facing maybe one of the bigger let downs we have had in years. God everything about this game is great and year long entertainment. Thanks for that Jason.
I Believe we get Hilliard, Cornell, and Baker!! Their getting it out if the way for The Opening and the huge FNL... For recruiting purposes! Have Faith Friends!!!
Not to be a Debby downer but realistically, I don't see us having a number 1 class just based on sheer numbers. Our 2015 class will most likely be in the 20-22 range and you know teams like Bama and LSU will take 25.
Since I can't upvote you Jason, this will have to do...
This would be fricking GREAT heading into the 4th of July weekend of Norwalk Drag Races and camping! I would really have to get sh*tfaced like and SEC fan.
I know I'm a Buckeye homer, but MY GUT tells me these guys are all Buckeye, especially Hilliard. ***trying to create good karma***
I had to take some xanax after I read this post...gonna be a busy morning for sp3llch3ck.
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!
247 National Analysis JC Shurburtt, Kipp Adams, Barton Simmons, & CEO Shannon Terry just casted their Crystal Ball for Jashon Cornell to OSU
— jbook (@jbook37) June 30, 2014
If anyone is familiar with the ND 247 site, Loy just finally gave in and changed his crystal ball pick for Cornell to OSU.
Made me laugh.
Sounds about right - Go Buckeyes!!!
Yeah, that was probably painful for him. But he hasn't given up on Hilliard....yet..
If anyone noticed Hilliard with Berger and Hubbard on his latest visit it had less to do with LB's and more to do with kids from private catholic schooling. The ND guys are still holding on to hope with Hilliard because publicly the family is saying they havent decided yet. Watch to see how the CB's swing tomorrow evening. We will know tomorrow night how big of a hump day we are going to have around here. Have a feeling Loy will have to bite the bullet and admit defeat.
He isn't giving up on Hilliard because of all of the hits the ND site would lose over the next 2 days.
I will be committing on Wednesday at 9am at Cretin Derham-Hall. Everyone is welcome. pic.twitter.com/UzhvfJnO3h
— Jashon Cornell (@Jay_Rock16) June 29, 2014
Well, he says everyone is welcome. Does that mean we can tweet him too?
If you're over 25 year old some would say NO
