My wishlist:

WR: Mack, NCM

DL: Nick Bosa, Rashan Gary

TE: Luke Farrell

LB: Caleb Kelly

DB: Andrew Pryts, Damar Hamlin, Jordan Fuller

OT: Prince Sammons

I'm sure this won't happen, but I'd be ecstatic. I'm betting on the staff taking 25 or more again this year. My only thinking is that they wouldn't and then bring in a huge 2017 class with the talent they're in on.

Also, keep in mind that against a lot of OOC and B1G teams, we scored pretty fast and at will, so you have to account for that. The stat should be adjusted for snaps per game divided by total offensive minutes per game.

You can definitely look back at CFB and see trends, but using those trends to predict the future of CFB is way off. You can make very general predictions based on trends like the teams playing for Nattys/in the playoffs will be blue-bloods (OSU, FSU, Bama, LSU, etc), but not for specific teams. If that were the case, Michigan would have turned around by now, because the trend for a blue-blood is that it will turn around sooner than later. Most people can predict that OSU won't win a natty this year, because the trend is that winning back to back is extremely difficult. However, you can't account for the fact that our coach is one of the best CFB has ever seen.

Using trends to make predictions works sometimes, but shouldn't be relied upon to make predictions (at least in real life, non-scientific situations).

Did you have any inclination even before the Ohio State offer to play your college ball outside the state of Texas? Or did OSU really open your eyes to what else was out there? It seemed like shortly after your visit, it was pretty clear you would land here.

Comment 18 May 2015

Not a take right now. That list would be made up on players like Jared Mayden, Chad Clay, Tony Butler, Austin Andrews, Patrice Rene, etc. I'm not sure about Joejuan Williams, but I think he's a take too. Haven't heard anything on him in a while.

Bill Kurelic said a few days ago he still has him in the class

Comment 13 May 2015

How much pressure do you get from schools down in Florida to stay down south? What about from your friends, and people around you? I get that it may be a different situation for you being from Ohio, but what about other players committed to the Buckeyes down there?

It's definitely going to seem like sour grapes, but the true reason is not the engineering program. I'm in the engineering program and have a couple friends going into the petroleum field after graduation. It was rumored (and I hate rumors) that a possible reason is his dad didn't like to see his first son sit on the bench at Michigan and doesn't want Brendan to have to for a few years.

Either way, good luck to him and I'm sure he'll be successful wherever he goes.

I wouldn't say they didn't have the right mentality for Ohio State... I'm sure Kraemer and Eichenberg would flourish here. It's a matter of where they were comfortable. 

In comparison, I'm sure Raekwon McMillan had nothing against Georgia, or Torrance Gibson with Miami, they just felt more comfortable here. I'm sure they wouldn't have failed going to the home school, just like I doubt Kraemer or Eichenberg will. Best of luck to them.

The Sunday commitment date seems good for OSU too. Silent commit over the weekend and announce when he gets back home.

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Any of the recruiting experts know much more than me, but I keep up with recruiting a fair amount... The vibe I get is that it will be OSU. I don't have much to back that up but I think it's where his heart is.
