According to the Auburn 247 staff insider, Auburn has slowed down on Gibson and is focusing on Deondre Francois, Kai Locksley and Lamar Jackson. Also read that Tennessee has told TG that he would be a WR if he came there.
You would be surprised how often leaders change in kids minds, especially with making so many visits and seeing so many different schools. Some kids like to come out and name leaders and others don't, but in the end they're still kids enjoying a once in a lifetime opportunity. And to be fair TG didn't come out and name Ohio State his leader, his coach texted Wiltfong and told him privately. Social media wasn't involved at all so don't think this is an attention wanting scheme.
Depends. That would give us four 5 star recruits. I think it'll be tough to overcome Alabama and A&M because of who they have left on their board as well, but it will definitely out us in the top 3. Losing Jerome Baker and Larry Scott didn't help, but if we can replace Baker with Deberry or Jefferson, then we are sitting pretty.
Been saying all along that when this kid made it up for the summer that Ohio State would be his leader. This kid loves attention, and since Tennessee was showing him the most (their fans harassing him on twitter, Butch Jones calling him at least once everyday) he kept them at the top for the time being. But everyone who has been following this kid closely since the end of last year knows that Miami and Ohio State were always his top 2 schools, and this kid values winning so much that there wasn't anyway he was ending up in Tennessee.
Yup... "By the time the police contacted UGA football administrators, the suspect had already left campus to return to Florida."

Grew up an Ohio State fan and very infatuated with Meyer and never visited Ohio State. There's a very good chance that this kid will be a Buckeye before NSD 2016. This may all be a high coming off of a visit to Auburn. Once he watches how terrible Auburns passing game is, and he visits Ohio State, he will be on flip watch.
Harris has a busy upcoming schedule, and Burrell will be at Florida's FNL instead.
Updated list, Damien Harris and Mathew Burrell will not be in attendance.
2016 TE Jake Hausmann will be there, that's a huge addition.
Haskins also seems to be forming a friendship with Nate Craig, and he stated a couple months ago that Cameron Chambers was a guy he wants to play with at the next level, two WRs who are high on Ohio State. Stefon Diggs little brother Trevon Diggs also stated that he wants to play with Haskins at the next level.
He named Ohio State his leader over Auburn back on May 21st so I believe we may still be. He did mention last month that FSU is starting to make a big push, but I believe the kid wanting to get out of Florida will hurt their chances.
I would love for Oklahoma City to pick him up. They need a backup true PG and with so much fire power on the team, Craft wouldn't be needed on the offensive end as much.
Saw some clips of him from Ohio State's last camp. He was locking down mostly everyone he covered. I will look on Youtube and see if I can find the video again.
Yup. I don't know why you got downvoted for this but many things are in Ohio State's favor this class. It all starts with getting a top notch QB on board early, and maybe a Nate Craig/Nick Bosa type on board early as well to help with recruiting.
Kid grew up a huge Urban Meyer and Ohio State fan. He even mentioned before that he's leaving Florida for sure to go to college, saying that he doesn't want to be near family and friends to have any distractions. While it's unlikely for him to commit soon, he has mentioned before that there's a possibility he commits before the end of the summer. He also mentioned that he may wait until after his Senior season, we shall see. You never know what can happen with kids who change their commitment timelines frequently.
Another thing that cant be overlooked is the fact that all of our recruits are doing well at a high profile camp with tons of top 2015 and 2016 recruits there. Ben Simmons (#1 recruit in the class of 2015, current LSU commit) is there and Russell has been recruiting him hard for Ohio State. VJ King (top 10 recruit for class of 2016) is also there among other top players from both classes.
Also read recently that Bragg is "intrigued" with Ohio State's 2015 class because it has 4 top 100 players in it. The impact of Lebron coming back to Ohio will also play a role with some of these kids in my opinion. With Lebron, Manziel and Wiggins in Cleveland, Ohio is the place to be right now and with Basketball players that's a huge deal.
