Vincent told 247sports that his decision will come down to Ohio State or Florida State, as expected. He will visit Ohio State sometime during his spring break that starts on March 17th and lasts for two weeks. If all goes well, he could make a commitment shortly after the visit to one of the two schools.
His ranking actually went up around the time he committed to Ohio State on 247sports, if you look at his ranking history. He was a borderline five star on 247sports composite rankings, before 247sports gave him a bump in their personal site rankings, which pushed him to five star status in the composite. Rivals recently updated their rankings and he had a small drop, which pushed him back to being a borderline five star at .9818 in the composite. To be a five star in the composite, his average has to be .9834 or higher. That's why in 2015, there were 35 composite five stars while in 2016, there were only 25.
Not sure how good he is, but im sure Kentucky is telling him what he wants to hear to secure his signature. No way he plays both basketball and football and if he does play basketball for Kentucky, he's an end of the bench guy with the type of talent they bring in who's focus is on basketball only.
What I read, is that it has a lot to do with Kentucky giving him more leeway to play both basketball and football, plus they want him as a definite WR while Ohio State may end up moving him to TE down the road.
Could literally go either way right now, have to see how he feels after his visit this weekend.
No, this weekend's visit to Ohio State will be his last visit before he commits.
Said today that he will maintain relationships with other schools and may still take his official visit to Ohio State.
I should add that he said Ohio State and FSU are now tied at the top. Hopefully Urban and LJ can seal the deal on his next visit.
Vincent has been to FSU twice since his last visit to Ohio State. He said today was his first visit to FSU with his mom and dad and it was great sitting down with everyone and having a talk. He will make one more visit to Ohio State over his spring break before a decision is likely made. I think this is a situation where we just need to get him back on campus and show him again, what made Ohio State his #1 school for a whole year.
Wiltfong crystal balls Xavier Peters and Blue Smith to.... Kentucky.
Visiting Ohio State on the weekend of March 4th and his friend, 2018 top 50 DE, Brenton Cox, may also be with him. Will commit a week or two after the visit, says Georgia and Ohio State are tied at the top.
Lol no worries, I wonder what ever happened to the monthly recruiting thread for the 2018 class, that one of the staff members said there would be. Nice place to keep everyone updated on the happenings with the 2018 class.
Tristen Wallace was even expected in the days leading up to his decommitment. He took visits to UCLA and Oregon a few days before he decommitted and it was said then, that he wanted to switch positions so he and the staff decided to part ways. Tyjon Lindsey has been the only surprise decommit I can remember in recent memory.
Kurelic has flipped his crystal ball to UGA. Doubt we see another risky crystal ball from him again anytime soon.
Reason was that his sources still believe Gaoteote stays on the west coast. Although, a poster on Bucknuts did say that Biggins from Scout stated earlier this week, that he still has Gaoteote to Ohio State.
I have seen Clement compared to Samuel and while that would be a nice Buckeye comparison, he reminds me more of Dalvin Cook. Not the biggest back but deceptively strong, very hard to tackle, knows how to work his way through traffic and once he hits the open field its goodbye. While Samuel is a great player, he didn't show off the strength that Dalvin Cook did and that Clement shows in his highlights.
Dalvin Cook was listed at 5'11, 190 with a 4.46 40 during his recruitment and got up to 214 at FSU according to their official roster. Clement is listed at 5'11, 190 with a 4.49 40 on his hudl.
Would be nice to have our own Derrick Henry or Bo Scarbrough, this kid fits that bill.
Guys who I think will be gone between now and NSD 2018 for one reason or another...
Offense: Barrett, Weber if he rushes for around 1500, Clark, Dixon, Stump, Price, Jones, Feder
Defense: Lewis, Hill, Hubbard, Holmes, Sprinkle, Slade, Thompson, Baker, Worley, Conner, Sheffield, Ward, Webb, Smith, maybe one of Burns or Wint
Have to remember that Haubeil will also go on scholarship in January 2018, so he's essentially a 2018 recruit.
Cant believe Scout released their top 30 and had Carman at #30. Not only did Saban call him the best OT he has ever scouted, but the guys on Rivals called him the nastiest OL they have seen on film in recent years.
Gets voted on in April and even then it wont affect the hirings that have already been made.
His old coach, Biff Poggi, from Gilman in Baltimore.
