Anything on Jordan whitehead? It was reported after talking to him at FNL, urban pumped his fist as he was walking away. But no one really said much about it afterwards.
That's Cecil shorts who they listed after him. It says ginn went to tOSU
Anyone have anything about the whitehead/Meyer conversation that ended with a Meyer fist pump? I feel like he's not the kind of coach to do that after just finishing any old conversation.
Does it make good business sense though. A lot of a linebacker's success depends on the DL getting to the QB or taking on blockers. I don't think it's a stretch to say that OSU is a lot better in that department and should be for the next few years. Also the other LBs you play with affect how you play and I think with Raekwon and Hilliard, that would be more enticing as well.
Another reason to play down the number of commits you'll take is to pressure some kids into committing earlier. If they think the limited amount of spots are being taken, it pushes the timetable.
I feel like birm or Jordan talked about this working against them in one of the "calm down the massive freakout" posts going on when there were only 2 commits.
I hear everyone they're recruiting for '15 are all going to Kentucky
Interesting that you stopped there because 2010 had 2 DTs in the top 3 and 3 in the top 10. It's all about prospects. If there are DTs better at manufacturing pressure than any of the DEs then they will go quick. But the pure run stuffers aren't going top 5, that you can say with pretty high confidence.
I think the overlooked aspect would be the weather. It's more difficult to have a track meet in conditions like they faced last year in Northwestern and against Wisconsin. The SEC and Big 12 can spread it out and run all day because it's almost constantly sunny and dry. To survive the B1G, a team needs to be able to ground and pound from time to time. I agree that they need to open it up more, but I also think that it's just a different brand of football.
According to 247, he signed with SMU
