PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Just wondering. If anyone knows, can you please list the names?
Really not sure OSU is going hard after any RBs at this point. They have 1 Junior, 1 Soph, 1 RS frosh, and Elliot, along with whomever else gets touches from that position.
They also have Campbell in this class
thanks. I was wondering how hard OSU would be pushing for Tony James. He is the second ranked all purpose back on Rivals. If OSU doesn't go after him hard that will give us a better chance...lol.
Currently have Campbell wouldn't be surprised if thats all we take with our small class size
Mostly in on ATHs who could easily play RB if needed. Guys like Curtis Samuel, Miles Autry, and obviously Campbell. Jonathan Hilliman is a bit more of a RB who we are in on as well. I am sure I am missing a bunch.
I'd say of the options available, imo the list of pure RBs OSU offered and has shown interest in would be something to the effect of:
1) Jalen Hurd -- committed to Tennessee, unlikely to decommit, but I wouldn't be surprised if OSU and Meyer swoop in if his commitment wavers even a little in the event that Tennessee has a poor season; Meyer rarely gives up on someone he likes (see Dontre Wilson last year even prior to Kelly's departure)
2) Elijah Hood -- committed to ND, very unlikely to decommit, doubtful that OSU is still pursuing him heavily (if at all)
3) Joe Mixon -- likely the best RB out there still uncommitted that OSU has a decent shot at
2nd Tier (in no particular order):
Nick Chubb -- still uncommitted, but unlikely that OSU has much of a shot at him (seems SEC-bound)
Derrell Scott -- longshot, but I do believe OSU is in his top 3
Third tier (in no particular order):
Jonathan Haden, Jonathan Hilliman, Donte Thomas-Williams, Tony James, Corey Avery
1st Tier Hybrid RB/WRs:
Myles Autry, Curtis Samuel
Agree with this above LLJJGG....
I can see OSU landing John Hillman, Joe Mixon or Jon Haden. I don't see RB being that big of a target in the 2014 class personally. I really believe Curtis Samuel will be in this class as an ATH. Either way, this class will be the sickest yet. Which is pretty exciting if you think about how good 2012 and 2013's were.

This was covered yesterday in the recruiting mailbag, essentially saying that OSU isn't going that hard after anyone because of their current depth:
