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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

GirthBrooks's picture

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

But whatever, closing the deal on these 2 come Wednesday!

Why not TSUN?

2. UFM coaches the Buckeyes not the TSUN
3. Larry Johnson coaches the Buckeye DL not TSUN DL

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.

With the way Clark's recruitment played out (or playing out), I would think that potential recruits find him incredulous... just my opinion...

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!!!!!

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.

+1 HS
osu407's picture

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.

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.

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."

When the owner of the site posts a nice sarcastic Kirk gif it makes me feel so much better about the situation before us.

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.

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.
