PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Get your questions in for this weeks mail bag!
Alex, anything new regarding basketball recruiting? With Buford being the only senior, does it make it difficult to extend offers not knowing whether a few more will open up when/if Sullinger and DST leave early?
If Urban takes two QBs for 2013, will he take a QB in 2014? I'm specifically wondering about Deshone Kizer?
Which recruits do you feel best about? And who do you see committing before the start of the season?
I second that I'm in need of a little basketball recruiting knowledge.. I know were going after Tony Parker (C) of GA... is that our only legitimate offer for 2012? Also, can you drop a few names for 2013 basketball recruiting, I'm assuming that will be a little more active of a class.
Thanks Alex, appreciate the work.
keep em coming
Why are we going so hard after Robert Foster if his testing times are a 4.82 40, 4.34 shuttle, and 29 in vertical? Those read out like the stats of a lot of Ohio recruits we've passed over last year. Madaris comes to mind. I thought we were shying away from this type of player and it sure seemed so since every linebacker we signed last year, even Luke Roberts, posted a better time than that. Is it just that Foster doesn't know how to run combine style yet and his starts and transitions are raw and uncoached? Do we think Mickey can make him faster?
Alex: Don't if there's anything to it, but USA Today's team page (last week) for the BasketBucks mentioned that Weatherspoon and Sibert are likely candidates to transfer.
With Sully, and Thomas likely gone along with Buford, could this team be short on manpower next year? Does Matta have any contigency plans that you know of?

Where did you get those numbers on Robert Foster? 4.82 forty yard time seems really hard to believe. All the recruiting sites claim Foster to be one of the best playmaker WR in the whole class.
It says he has a 4.82 on his ESPN recruiting profile.
Last time you gave us the difference between committable/non-committable offers, but how exactly does a coach present a non-committable offer without making it seem like they are the Buckeye's 2nd or 3rd choice? What do they tell the player and family?
1. David Perkins tweeted that he ran a 4.2 something in track practice. Do you know what his previous times were and thoughts on what that will mean for him coming in?
2. Why are so many of these Ohio kids committing early to tsun? I thought Friday Night lights was suppose to make these kids hold out and compete for spots? Are they feeling neglected or something?
Is there still a chance of landing laremy tunsil or is he out of the picture, and who do you think is the next Ohio state commitment
Say sibert transfers, do you think we go after any guards?
" I went for two cause I couldn't go for three."
Will Urban target any special teamers for this year's class? What are the names to look out for if he does?
Have you heard which region Kerry Combs will handle as far as his recruiting duties?
How many runnin backs do you see Urban taking? Do you still see Green as being the most likely candidate to be a buckeye or has someone else such as Ezekiel Elliot become a stronger possibility?
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
Alex, which safeties seem like possibilities for the 2013 class? It seems like Thomas was our only main high-profile target, and it seems less and less likely that he could be flipped every day. Will one of Woodard or Burrows move to safety? Will this be a high priority position for recruiting going forward?
