I've only been following recruiting closely since the middle of 2011, so I haven't had too much time to excperience a lot of heart break when it comes to recruiting.....especially with Urban at the helm. Actually, Urban is the real reason I became interested in recruiting to begin with. Constantly googling "Urban Meyer Ohio State" when the rumors started to really heat up, which of course would often lead me to 11 Warriors and the rest is history.
Anyways, in the short time I've followed recruiting there's always been those one or two players per class that I really wanted the Buckeyes to snatch up but for whatever reason we couldn't seal the deal. For me in 2012 the players I really wanted were Stefon Diggs and Cyrus Jones and in 2013 there was Vonn Bell and Robert Nkemdiche. Don't get me wrong, I'm really stoked about how the '12 and '13 classes have shaken out and '14 seems to be taking shape nicely to wrap up the limited scholarship run.
Now that a bow has been wrapped around the '13 class I'm finally becoming acclimated with the 2014 class and the recruits' corresponding highlight footages. I think thus far I'd have to say the '14 recruits I'm really hoping to snag would be Da'Shawn Hand, Jabril Peppers and Deshaun Watson......I think Watson is the best QB talent in this class for our offense and since we only take one QB/Class, typically, I think that makes him the one I'm pulling for the most.
How about you guys? Which recruiti are you pulling for the most in this class? Excluding the verbals we already have.
