Do they though? Antjuan Simmons, Danny Clark, Todd Sibley, and Bruce Judson were all expected and just in the most recent class. In the previous class, Kareem Walker, Terrell Hall, and George Hill were all expected when Tristen Wallace was the only unexpected. Actually, contrary to your statement, most decommits often come by NO surprise.
Jamie Wood and Duron Carter are also two more I expected more out of.
Jamaal Berry, Ricquan Southward and Cam Burrows were three guys I was super excited about that never panned out.
The only thing impressive about Manley was his height. He was a non-factor defensively so much, in fact, the coach took him out on defense towards the end of halves. He ended up with 12 points, but I think half of those points came late in the 4th quarter when the game was already decided. He doesn't move real well or jump at all. I could have just seen him on a bad day, but if that was his typical day, I don't expect him to contribute for UNC for a long time.
Goodwin impressed me. He had 34 points and 13 rebounds against a decent Garfield Heights team. He scored from anywhere on the court and has a knack for positioning to get the rebound.
Akers was visiting Tennessee today. In case you were only focusing on OSU today, Bama beat Tennessee 49-10.
To give you an idea of Romero's athleticism, he went over 10,000 total career yards tonight.
Lamar Jackson has 42% of his TD's against two bad opponents.
Deshaun Watson has 16% of his TD's against two bad opponents.
Baker Mayfield has 15% against two bad opponents.
DeShone Kizer 35%.
Greg Ward 17%.
My point is, your numbers don't mean much unless you compare them to something. After looking up these QB's, I don't think the 20% is as meaningful as you think it is.
I am from that area. While I don't know Kaleb, I know many people who do. I have never heard a single negative thing about him as a wrestler, football player, or as a person. He chose the Bucks over UNC and Cornell, so he had a vast amount of opportunities. The Buckeyes got a good one.
I'm sold on Bubba!
I saw him at a 7on7 this summer. Springfield was beating up on their opponent pretty easily and Taylor was the third QB to play. I had no idea he was really a QB, and was just messing around. After watching him, he was clearly the best QB (with the strongest arm by far) on the field from any team. I am not surprised to see him play QB, especially since everybody knows that the ball is going to Danny Davis.
The first video I saw of his was the Ronda Rousey video. I had no idea he was a comedian.
Notice the trust Martell has for Ali Walsh? Once he went out with that injury, he almost never gave it to Ali Walsh's backup in the read option.
You mean Rod JONES isn't on the team this year?
Coached against Ahrens last year and he kicked our butts (and we were a good D2 team). Amazing shooter, decent defender, but a very underrated athlete. I am very excited he is a Buckeye and expect him to climb in the rankings.
I coached against Ahrens last year and he is the real deal. Underrated athlete with a great shooting touch.
