He says potential flip because everyone in Florida think it's just a matter of time. Regardless, OSU will be okay
As a HS football coach and teacher, man I hate this stuff
I'm confused by this as well, he shouldn't have to sit out a year.
These are the kind of Ohio boys that the rest of the Big10 needs to grab. Step up little boys.
Re-read what you typed
I understand what you're saying for sure. I think James Hudson will be another Ohioan joining the DL class and we'll take one Ohio WR. So we'll have Ohioans QB Clark, RB Sibley, one WR and one TE, Myers, DB Williamson and DL Cage and Hudson in the class. 8 isn't bad imo.
It'll be interesting to see what happens for both classes. Just fun to speculate.
There's a reason they're only penciled in and not penned in. Like Birm has said for months, Jones is a definite take. However, we'll never settle this debate as Jones will likely pick Ole Miss. But I do think that Rene picks OSU soon and leaves either Hamlin or Pryts on the outside.
I'm not trying to stick up for MSU either but people need to take the scarlet and gray colored glasses off here. We have done very similar things here at OSU under Meyer. We've overrecruited some kids and forced them out as well. Its unfortunate but as long as we don't do it close to NSD, I'm okay with it.
No, that isn't logical. We take the kids that best fit our program, we don't worry about what tTUn is doing.
I don't think Mitchell is a take regardless of what happens the rest of the way in 2016 class. The staff will take one of their primary three targets at WR or just move on to 2017. Mitchell isn't getting that offer imo.
I honestly think MSU has been looking for a way to drop him from them class for awhile
Jones is definitely a take. It he chooses the good guys then Rene is probably on the outside looking in again.
What are you talking about? Webb is 2017
No, he isn't committed to MSU. I don't mind them pulling his scholarship but it has to be the rule for everyone. Sets a bad precedence if you allow 4 stars(no need to list 5 stars, MSU doesn't land those) to get away with it but not lower ranked prospects.
Birm has recently said 3 more DBs spots available.
Jones and Rene will be announcing within the next two or three weeks so unless one of those two pick us, birm must think we're getting Pryts, fuller and Hamlin.
Okay, let me rephrase what I meant. 7 DBs in one class would be too many. However, I don't think Pryor is a DB for us. So I can see us taking Pryor plus 5 other DBs.
I also said, that while 7 is likely more than the staff would want in one class, who in that group could you say no to?
7 is too many lol..but which of those guys can you honestly say no to? I don't think anymore DBs would want to sign on if we already have 5-6 in the class
There certainly hasn't been much out there on him, hence my question but from everything I've read he's not a natural pass catcher and kinda fights the ball. I don't want to say this but from the sounds of things, it doesn't appear as if he would be a take right now if he wasn't already committed.
Don't follow 247's CBs, they're pretty bad. Just follow certain insiders. Those are the only ones in the know for OSU.
If we grab another DT in 2016, (Jackson please!) then with cage already in. Those guys probably are fighting over one spot.
We'll have to recruit Shaun wade in particular to NSD tho, I don't get the best vibe from him, but we will see.
2016 - (4) Felder, Davis and two more. Preferably Hamlin and Fuller, but Jones/Pryts aren't bad consolation prizes.
2017 - (5) Williamson and Shaun Wade are in at corner. Pryor is in at LB. I like Lamont Wade, Richard Lecounte and Paris Ford as the other three DBs. Holmes you don't say no to, but I see him staying west coast after Keyshawn Jr. chooses either Nebraska or USC. Paris Ford and Hamlin I believe are one package deal that actually happens.
I think we can still take 3 more DBs for 2017. Birm has stated that the staff plan for 28 recruits and Pryor would be a LB.
