Bruce Judson Update

I have spoken with Class of 2017 five-star athlete Bruce Judson from Cocoa, Florida and he is hoping to decide soon. If his team has a game next Friday, he could commit before then. The game they were playing in got cancelled but they are trying to schedule another opponent. If the game happens, he is most likely going to commit before, but if it doesn't, it could happen the following week. I like the Buckeyes here.

Now, you say you like the Buckeyes. Can you give a quick reason why and percentage? Nothing major, just want to see what your thought process is on this one (I am not disputing it, I honestly have no reason to think anything else. You are, after all, the recruiting guru, and I am just trying to learn!).

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

Immediately following FNL, he named Ohio State his leader. Nothing, NOTHING has changed for anyone to not pick Ohio State. I've spoken with him several times and IMO he is Ohio State.

Well then, that is good enough for me. Awesome news. I guess we will wait and see. Keep up the good work, Rock.

Mike, I remember when you started posting on 11W before you worked here and people were like "who the hell is this guy?"

Joke's on them.

As do I...and I also remember he always responded with class no matter what.

Keep up the good work Mike, and stay classy!

Any commit from him now would only mean that school is in the top 3.

He's a Florida kid, so a commitment would put OSU in his top ten

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

Is this the same guy that just the other day Birm said he expected will likely commit to OSU soon?

This may be a silly question, but what does the game have to do with his timeline to commit?  Unless game was to be televised or something of that nature?

It is something he wants to do. It might be a I'm going to announce before my game, get everyone excited. Not sure. Just something he wants to do.

Gotcha.  Love to hear he wants to pump up a bunch of Florida kids with a BUCKEYE commitment.  That would be sweet.

Any thoughts on whether he is a flip candidate whether he commits to us or not? 2017 is very far away, so was just wondering if you think he comes off that way? 

Ahh Saturday's picture

Obviously, any 2017 commit is going to be a bit iffy, but one reason I like our chances better than most for a commitment to stick is this:

The thing that shocks me the most is that there's a kid his age named Bruce.

Anything can change from now til 2017, not sure why kids commit so early these days, especially if a school your going to pick is a long ways away. Now id be happy if he picks OSU, but geez he has a lot to learn and a lot of places to see until then.

When you have a QB like Clark Committed your going to get some early recruits with him that want to build a great class.  This will be the first class where we had a QB as a leader very early in the process.

Isn't Bruce projected to be a QB?


Mike Rockstedt's picture

Yea but he played WR and a little RB at the FNL camp. He has said he can play where they need him. He is an athlete.
