I know about Slade last year, who could be a fantastic player, but Cornell appears to be the first big-time recruit where we feel the effect of Johnson. May Sweat be next!

Did you forget about Dre'Mont Jones ?

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

No - just didn't know if he was active in his recruitment and couldn't remember anything being said about it.

To be fair, although a great player, he isn't a top 50 recruit aka "big fish" like Cornell. Dre'Mont Jones was most likely coming here with or without LJ

With LJ Sr on board - we will be reaping the benefits for years to come.

From this free article: Cretin's Cornell picks Ohio State, says U was sixth on his list:

“I think it was my relationship with [Buckeyes defensive line coach] Larry Johnson, and my auntie lives 30 minutes from their stadium,” Cornell said. “I have family down there, so I don’t have to worry about getting homesick.”
