Buckeyes already have 4 highly rated DBs in the '17 class (Wade, Pryor, Williamson, White) and seem to be in hot pursuit of prospects like Okudah, Lamont Wade, JK Powell, and the recently offered Amir Riep. Add to that the fact that we are at least in the running for Darnay Holmes (an absolute take if he starts showing serious interest) and you have to wonder how many DBs we want in what is likely to be a fairly small class. It will be interesting to see how the DB situation plays itself out over the next year.

Very excited about the way Malik Barrow was playing early in his senior season. My one concern is something Birm mentioned in passing, and that is whether or not he is a true DT at the next level. 247 lists him at 270 which isn't bad. He could certainly put on good weight after a year with Coach Mick, but his Hudl profile, which claims to be "Nike sparq verified" lists him at 238 which seems a long way away from playing DT. Anyone here have a good read on Barrow's actual size?

Birm,

You've mentioned many times players not being good fits for the Buckeyes. I wonder if you could elaborate on the culture of the program. What exactly is it that makes a prospect a good or bad fit for the Buckeyes? Thanks.

Based on their talent, development, and the depth of the team at their positions, I think these are the most likely true freshman to see significant playing time: Bosa, Pridgeon, Fuller, Mack, and whoever emerges between Hausmann and Farrell. Some others, like Keandre Jones will likely make an impact on special teams.

Any prospect who meets Jim Harbaugh and decides "hey, this is the kinda guy I want to play for" is exhibiting, at minimum, impaired decision making abilities, and quite possibly psychopathological symptoms. I try to view Rashan Gary with empathy, with an understanding of the traumatic events in his life, or perhaps congenital defects in his physiology, that led him to this point. I hope he can get the treatment he needs.

Anybody hearing anything about Onwenu? I heard he was making an announcement tonight, possible flip to Sparty.

Stars are not particularly great predictors of individual performance, but are very good predictors of team success when taken in aggregate. In other words, there will always be the three-star who exceeds expectations and the five-star who washes out, but a team full of four and five stars will have greater success than the team full of three stars. There are, as always, exceptions, teams that exceed expectations like Stanford and Sparty, or who perform below what their recruiting should produce, UGA, Michigan. But in general, success starts with recruiting, just ask Urban Meyer or Nick Saban.

 I really hope he turns his life around. As dean Wormer once said "Drunk and stupid is no way to go through life." 

True, but being rich will take some of the sting out of it. It seems like that's all he ever cared about. What do you expect when you draft this:
