There are worse things our QBs or former QBs could be doing. Let it ride!

What is the current state of Tim Settle's recruitment?

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Kyle, do you think this means the staff pretty much is thinking they are not getting Myles Turner and Lee provides for them a bridge (albeit a very nice bridge) between the 2014 recruiting class of big men and the 2015 when they hope to get Daniel Giddens?

Since he's been at Ohio State, I've been very impressed with the character and perspective of the players Urban has recruited. Even more, we see that with many of them they come from sterling families who have had an integral role in shaping that character and perspective. In one way or another I hope Camren Williams makes his mark on this program, even if it is simply being a leader in the locker room and a reliable backup. If he ends up starting, that's great too!

Some of us forget that when you have only 10-12 spots and are managing who's graduating, who's leaving early, injuries, and so on you can't just go around handing out offers and at the same time keep integrity with the players you are pursuing the longest. It's a fluid situation and just because Izzo offered first does not mean OSU has not seen Ahrens worth. It's obvious Kennard was a prospect earlier on and higher rated, and had expressed interest in OSU. Would you rather Matta not gone hard after him? Izzo wasn't distracted by Kennard because he wasn't interested in MSU. Despite many years of investment by the OSU staff, Kennard is now off the board and other offers can go out.

Ahrens looks like a fantastic prospect and I hope he gets an offer real soon. While this year's team struggled to shoot, we all know Thad's best teams have had an outside threat or two, and having that is essential to his teams succeeding. Let us not have such short, bitter memories and not remember all the terrific shooters who have donned the Scarlet & Gray these last 10 years or so. I hope Ahrens can be one in the future, and the fact that he loves defense will mean he will probably see more of the floor earlier than even Diebler did. If you can shoot AND play defense under Matta = mucho playing time!
