PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
I know where he's going.
oo la la. wonder what is causing him to make his decision so much earlier than previously thought.
I'm gonna assume it's not OSU.
What time are you expecting?
Supposedly 4pm eastern.
Committing at 4:00 EST
Sorry you can delete my post if necessary.
Hmm...that sounds like a reason to get excited.
The last crystal ball prediction I saw predicted tOSU... but good ol' Alex thinks either UCLA or A&M.
color me intrigued... I like where we sit. I sorta wonder if Harris' comments about moving up his commitment date post-OSU visit sparked young Kyle into action...
oh the suspense of major college recruiting, nothing is better
Cause I couldn't go for three
You know, I forgot about this scenario, and it is an interesting thing to think about. Wonder who he chooses!
UCLA is my guess
Jeremy, you tease...
Oh the world of recruiting. If he picks somewhere else, maybe the OSU staff hinted to him that Harris silently committed? If he picks OSU, we're all ecstatic and wondering if he's the best choice of the three QB offers!
Exciting either way because we are getting closer to knowing who may end up becoming a Buckeye in the near future!
"What we do in life echoes in eternity"
This smells like Texas A&M to me, which will help our chances with Harris for sure !
Hope so...would rather have Harris.

And I wouldn't mind having a quarterback that defenses can't load the box on.
Going out on a limb here...Too much attrition at ND at the QB position...Think he smells early playing time there and can't resist the golden domers at South Bend...(Although we ALL know that TOSU would be a WAY better choice) :)
I'm probably WAY off but hey, that's what makes this stuff fun...

I see Jeremy changed is Crystal Ball prediction to TAMU...
Last 10 or so people on 247 changed their prediction to Texas A&M. News must have broke.
Realize they were in his top 5 but that comes out of nowhere for me. Weird!
Well Jeremy....Now that I just saw your prediction of TA&M on 247's crystal ball predictions, I guess there's that....
Onto the next one guys...
I'm ready to hear kyle Allen's announcement this means alot; B.Harris (@bharrisqb1)
Think it is UCLA.
A & M it is
I felt like he would have been a natural fit at ND, kind of surprised he ultimately decided on A&M! Not sad he's not going to ND, though haha.
Interesting side-story is that Texas A&M was the school that a lot of recruiting writers thought Brandon Harris would end up at. Pushes his focus more towards LSU, Bama and OSU imo. If David Cornwell chooses Bama, I think Harris is an LSU-OSU contest.
Now all we need is a QB to commit to LSU and Bama for the lock on Harris :) I think Harris is between OSU and LSU at this point, but maybe he gave a silent verbal to the coaches sparking Allen's fast committment?
Jeremy, do you know what this means for Mark Andrews? Package deal?
Loving all things Buckeye from SEC country in Alabama.
"How firm thy friendship....O-HI-O"
I get the sense Andrews was really hoping Kyle would be blown away by Notre Dame...
This just reassures my thoughts about Brandon Harris.
I tweeted it out - but Allen broke Twitter - Brandon Harris said he will be releasing a statement today at 5pm regarding his recruitment and how, conceivably, Allen's decision will affect him.
Jeremy -- if you're here and reading this, would it be outrageous to suspect then, if Harris really silent committed somewhere (as he says he "may" have done in an article about his visits), that it was to Texas A&M and Allen's quick public commitment blew that up for Harris?
That's the only thing that would make sense of Harris's big reaction (releasing a public statement for example haha) to me. Would also stand to reason why Allen suddenly decided almost out of thin air that he wanted to commit to A&M immediately without his scheduled visits to ND, OSU, etc (though spontaneous commitments do happen from time to time, in this case the conspiracy theorist in me thinks these things may have impacted the other).
Not Jeremy here, but doubtful because I don't think he's even been to A&M yet. Was supposed to visit this weekend. I'd bet his "announcement" is that he has a Top 3 of LSU, Bama, and OSU and will no longer be considering A&M
Part of me just gets the feeling that recruits get the feeling JT Barrett is the heir to Braxton and they might not stand a shot to start with him there. It is just straight crazy that so many QBs are not jumping at the chance to play for Urban knowing what fame awaits them ala Tebow.
at least that is the hope, I have strong beliefs in JT so that is why I am just looking at these kids (Harris, Allen, etc.) as competitors to JT, not the automatic heir to Braxton. If they want to start early, they will have to beat out him in order to have the chance. From what we have heard earlier this spring, that might be a tough task. And can't forget about Cardale Jones. Just too much competition I guess. All other explanations just don't stand up.
furthering my point, they aren't picking Alabam either. The 2 programs with the best depth.
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
Bama really just uses the QB to manage the game and ole AJ the momma's boy is the most overrated person in college football. I can't imagine someone with Harris' skillset being utilized to their full ability at Alabama. I think Harris realizes this and it will come down to LSU and OSU. The Alabama offense is all about the running back, O-line, and not turning the ball over.
Why do people assume Harris to OSU is likely? His top 3, according to 247, are Bama, LSU and Texas A&M. With Allen heading to TAMU, isn't it now BAMA, LSU, and OSU? Not Bama and OSU, like many seem to think?
Scarlet Buckeye completely agree with you I feel LSU will grab both Harris as well as the #1 RB in the country Leonard Fournette should be a nice pull for the grass eater. I don't see Bama getting him due to doesn't fit the mold ala Brody Croyle, John Parker Wilson, Greg McElroy, A.J Mcarron. I Could be completely wrong maybe BAMA pulls another talent out of LSU country.
Fournette to LSU is a done deal (from someone I know who graduated from the very same H.S. Fournette is from).
When was it ever not a done deal..lol.
Wouldnt it be awesome to see Cornwell go to Bana, Kizer go to LSU & Harris come to OSU!? Its a real possibility as well. I would love to see that!
