There's an oft-repeated adage that swirls around recruiting and recruiting websites: "recruiting is fluid." Things change, targets change, minds change and more often than not in the case of Urban Meyer's tenure at Ohio State, they change for the better. Lose on one player, strike gold with one that might be a better fit. Miss out on a prospect you thought would be a slam-dunk, sign one that was originally a long-shot. Ebb and flow, hit and miss, everything is fluid, everything works out.

Venzell Boulware has Ohio State In Top Three (MotSaG)

A couple of months ago, class of 2015 OT Venzell Boulware, was coming off of his Ohio State visit and had nothing but good things to say about it.  Now, the 6-4 Fairburn, Georgia resident, has a final three of Tennessee, Clemson, and Ohio State.  Georgia has been good to Ohio State in the past couple of recruiting classes with Stephen Collier and Raekwon McMillan both hailing from the Peach State.  Ohio State is hoping to continue that trend with Boulware.  Boulware joined us to talk about his final three and what he likes about each one.

Gene -

Good to see you back posting! I've missed the Quick Bits over the last couple of weeks.

I think I speak for most of 11W when I say that your efforts have not gone unnoticed, and are greatly appreciated.

Ohio state is sitting pretty for so many talented young men. Great time to be a Buckeye. Thank you for the quick bits, Gene!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

This class has the potential to be un-be-flipping-leivable

Thanks again Gene
