Ohio State football and basketball recruiting.
He's at OSU!
He's all Buckeye
Buckeye fan from PA
Is he expected at FNL?
Not according to Jordan...

Jordan's list has confirmed visitors. There will be others who come who are not on the list.
I believe he plans on being there.
EDIT: I thought he was. My bad.
Now there saying he never made the trip... Freaking Twitter..
Come on Soggy we expect better here on this free site.
Getting Craig and Bosa would mean landing 2 out of the top 3 recruits in FL for 2016. Gator fans would die.
Sorry for the misinformation. They say prob Auburn:(
Buzz Killington fact of the day: that guy (Jeffrey Jones) actually ended up being arrested for child pornography.
Auburn but there is plenty of time
A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men
The whole dream school thing sure seems to not work in the case of OSU. Been a bad stretch on that front for us compared to other schools
I will be announcing my decision tonight at 9!

A Beth Mowins comment has never left me so excited, lol
Crystal Ball is swayed/trending Auburn. OSU is loosing ground everytime I refresh the page. Not looking good but hopefully we can pull this out.
Auburn throws the ball less than we do. Where is all the negative recruiting towards wide receivers when we need it?
Kinda sarcasm, but maybe not really
Class of 2016. Go Bucks!
OSU is loosing ground
Just the kind of grammar I expect from Beth Mowins.
Kid is either at auburn now or just left there from this weekend I think. Auburn is the choice tonight.
Really a bummer too. This kid has been vocal and very enthusiastic about committing early and immediately recruiting passionately for his new team.
This would be like getting a Justin Hilliard about a year earlier than OSU did. Top ranked kid that is passionate about others joining him.
He is an Ohio State fan, maybe that trip to Aubrun was just to make sure?
Not sure if he has ever been to OSU. I thought for sure that he had, but his timeline on 247 isn't showing a visit.
It does show OSU as his 2nd offer though....... ugh.
Not sure you want a commitment from a kid like Craig this early. His commitment will go all the way until signing day. Long way to go here.
Lock up Layne and Flowers in state, grab Chambers from Philly then go after Craig until signing day.
I don't get how he can make a decision without visiting OSU... so weird
Same reason it is always hard to pull a top recruit from the south to OSU. It isn't always easy for a youngster to get to ohio.
Not to mention, there are MANY schools down there with top notch facilities, recruiters, stadiums, and campuses.
Because he got caught up.
I'd be surprised if he doesn't visit OSU at some point, regardless of where he commits tonight.
Austin Mack is high on OSU as well
Unfortunately I believe this ends with him committing to Auburn.
Auburn it is.
Good luck to him at Auburn. May only catch 50 balls in his career, but good luck.
Well ain't that some shit
Lot of cute young college girl fans following these guys on Twitter ... I guess no surprise, but just has a bad feel to it ...
Damn. Hopefully this one isn't over and he still visits.
If somebody says "I'm taking my talent to etc. etc.." one more time I'm going to scream.. Just say I'm going to Auburn. .. Dammit Lebron!!!
Another kid falls head over heels. 18 months is a long way to go...
This is like buying the first nice car you see at the first dealership.
Grew up an Ohio State fan and very infatuated with Meyer and never visited Ohio State. There's a very good chance that this kid will be a Buckeye before NSD 2016. This may all be a high coming off of a visit to Auburn. Once he watches how terrible Auburns passing game is, and he visits Ohio State, he will be on flip watch.
Yeah, I don't get this one. It seems like over the last 6 months, every kid from the South who is high on OSU, cools as soon as he visits southern campuses.

I'll fall on the"grenade". Wait, I'm married.
I wasn't planning on going back to college, but as of now I'm committed to Auburn.
I think these ladies need to be entered into the "Who's Better Looking" topic.
Can I get me a set of these hookers?
NOBODY TELL CRAIG JAMES!
Very hard to resist, especially as an 18-year, single, soon-to-be college guy...

That needs to be on a t-shirt.

tweet was made minutes after Mike Farrell tweeted that Craig would announce his choice.
So what I've gathered is that he is a huge OSU and Urban Meyer fan but committed to Auburn before even visiting us? I think this one is going until signing day 2016......
Thing I don't get... he said in an after committing interview "I thought Auburn was the best fit for me..." how the heck does he know that!? He didn't visit OSU yet.
Silver lining: Trevon Grimes (who will be at FNL) seemed to notice Craig's commitment and seems to still be very interested in OSU.
@Mr_OH1O: We might have missed out on the best WR in 2016 but we are getting the best in 2017 with @TrevonGrimes7#Buckeyes
— TregaTron (@TrevonGrimes7) July 22, 2014
so he is a 2016 kid?… that NSD is over 1 year and 7 months away…yeah, we shall see if this sticks.
Exactly what I was saying on Twitter. Hopefully Urban and Company stays on this kids trails until NSD.
We owe them for Ben Edwards. Another example of any out of state 2016 saying we are his favorite does nothing for me. Over 1.5 years away from signing date.
this is the biggest fail thread I have ever read

Smh....just when are they gonna get a real #1 WR? Tired of this....
And you know THIS....man!
Never. This staff can't recruit.
I'm assuming that's sarcasm. And while I see people didn't appreciate my post, I was simply commenting on their issues with getting a top flight receiver. It disturbs me when schools like Missouri and Georgia Tech can snag the likes of Jeremy Maclin or DGB (off field issues aside). Hell, Clemson had 2 Nfl receivers at the Orange Bowl. Where's our Watkins or Julio Jones? And now, Auburn, a team whose looking to run first, is able to secure players like Craig? It's worrisome.
i'm happy Urban and his staff have been able to beef up the D-line and hopefully the secondary. But receiver and QB leaves something to be desired.
Thank you for this important news. Err . . .
worst yet, those bastards used BOOM in their tweets! Stealin SOBes!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
They stole Sobes too!?!? That's just inexcusable!
He was just named the #1 player in the country on Rivals. Hopefully once he realizes that Auburn can't pass the ball very well he will reopen his recruitment.
Remind us to follow that story line once the season starts.
