Yes, it is early, but usually Birm doesn't jump the gun on stuff and if he truly felt it was too early to call or it was still 50-50, he would have waited, especially with a recruit from Ohio who is this highly ranked. He must have gotten some solid information that he feels gives OSU very unfavorable odds, not impossible, at getting him.
you have to also consider that we are very deep at LB and only getting stronger. I still hate to see a top 100 Ohio LB go out of state
If you had to pick 2 DT's that we have the best shot at getting, who would they be? Thanks Birm
Good share Remy, thanks
Two biggest factors in my eyes:
1) Recruiting one-ups-manship
2) I just don't like the school
With those two extremely well articulated criteria, it'd have to be Florida State and LSU
It's safe to say the QB spot is locked up for years and years to come.....Guarantano next? Clark to come in 2017.
transfers are only needed if you start getting thin at a position due to some recruiting misses.
At this point, I don't think WR is an area of need. I can see us competing for us transfer DTs. We are really thin right now and the top 10 players for next year are in the backyard of some big time programs, so we shall see.
I'm guessing he's a solid commit?
We also need 1-2 or DTs
Gray is huge priority and would be a monumental get, but with TTUN buying their way into his top 3, it'll be hard to pry him away at this point, but it's early.
There is no way we take more than 20 next year.
Urban has already said they will be super selective because the class will be small.
hey coach, go **** yourself
November 28th, 2015 - can't wait
Doesn't this open the can of worm of fake fans?
If this is true, what would prevent a bunch of us registering fake twitter accounts under our rivals and bashing recruits? They're kids, but I think they gotta understand that what you read on the internet is hardly true. But who knows?
So what you guys are saying is that in one day, they called, scheduled an interview, had an interview over the phone, or flew him there all in one day, and then wrote a contract and he had his agent and lawyers look at it, everything was perfect first time around which happens all the time, and he accepted................all in 24 hours? If you truly believe that, then don't know what to tell you....
I am somewhat surprised that Urban wasn't ready to announce his replacement immediately.
It's clear he know Drayton was leaving some time ago. Fox was hired on 19th and Gase the OC was hired on 21st. I'm sure they reached out to Stan then. Urban knew for two weeks........which makes the recruiting thing seem bad, but in my eyes, it's worse that someone isn't literally in here today. But what do I know.....
Urban is a great coach, but even he can make a mistake, and I think this whole situation is a mistake, and everyday we don't have a coach onboard to cool Weber and possibly Walker is hurting.
I agree with Birm, they will be back, but in fairness, Urban was tasked with a very similar situation. You can argue that Urban walked into a more messed up situation (sanctions, bad image at the time, etc...)
If you're afraid of competition and lack confidence in your skills then it's better you go elsewhere.
Legendary players think they are so good they can walk into any stadium and win the job and games against anybody. You need to have that confidence to be great. You also have to bust you ass too, but if you don't want to go somewhere because you're afraid you won't win the job, then I'm ok with not having that player.
If it's a comfort/family issue, then he has the right to do what is best for him. Good luck to you either way....
Marc Givler also said the big news is about a player that WAS SUPPOSED to have his official this weekend. The only one that comes to mind is Prince. He would qualify as big recruit, was supposed to visit but didnt. Any other ones?
If he's worried about depth chart, Miami is the last place you look. They have a bright future at QB for the next 2-3 years with a true freshman QB that has the job locked up. He's going on a free vacation.....
I think it's really stupid that coach of the year honors are awarded before the full season (bowls and playoffs included) officially comes to a close.
Great weekend to have recruits in town.....
Any tweets from the group?
