Can't fault for him for wanting to stay home, but he should know his draft status would be 10x better sitting the pine at Ohio State for four years than being the starter at Rutgers for four years. Starting at Rutgers everyone can nitpick his flaws (while also getting destroyed by better teams), while sitting at Ohio State everyone will assume he is the next Arnie Herber.
So when birm is wrong like he usually is when will you all realize these "insiders' are just random people anyone who can go to school at osu have?
Hokies Stuffed By Ohio State
Why not commit now instead of worrying about someone else taking the spot?
Barrett has such a smooth delivery. He can play here.
Forgot the ITALICS guys, relax. I am no crystal ball.
Eichenberg, Kramer, Hausmann, and Sammons are all ND bound.
- I think Tressel is one of the most overrated coaches ever and hate it when people always bring him up when they disagree with something about Meyer. He is the reason OSU gets the bad rap all across the country.
- I love having Ohio players all over the roster, but I will be honest when saying this because I have nephews who play down south and I see some of there games when I go visit. The talent and the players up here do not even compare at all to the talent down south in football. It is obvious why the SEC is so much better just go down there for a high school game and you will notice. Great atmosphere and the teamwork is great up here, but would get destroyed playing down south, sign up as many southerners for our team as possible.
I am not saying I don't believe he could end up here, I was mainly stating that because the above posters all seem he is PSU bound.
Sounds like it is FSU.
I just watched the 11 warriors stream of the commitments. First off his dad never shows emotion which was kind of funny. Second off, his brother looked to be in such an awkward state since he is playing for Iowa and when Cornell committed he sort of sarcastically clapped. It was actually kind of funny.
I aways had fun going to visit friends on the campus of UC. Had about 4 really close friends, but I knew about 30 people (all from towns nearby where I grew up, I lived in a small town SE OH so I knew everyone in the county) and every single one of them were diehard buckeye fans. Always chanted O-H-I-O on their campus with the actual students and the UC students who were UC fans would always argue.
If I were the #1 recruit in the nation and from Ohio
Unofficial my junior year to OSU and silent commit to Urban and only him and tell him to please keep it silent. Only my parents and him would know and I would play it off to everyone, even closest friends who are die-hard OSU fans that I am not interested. I would then tell all reporters that something felt wrong on the visit and I would not be considering them. All the creeps on every recruiting site for OSU would be up in flames saying how bad I suck blah blah, and I would laugh at them knowing how bad I am trolling them (the twitter comments would be great as well). I would then visit Michigan and a couple of other B1G schools a couple times, get my paychecks from the SEC schools. After a couple of visits to Michigan I would tell reporters I almost committed. Before my officials I would say this is my top five in order, and my five officials.
Then after the visits, I would still say Michigan leads, and wait for my in-home visits with the coaches. The Under-Armour game is where I would decide, and have hats on the tables. As it is time for me to decide I would thank Jabrill Peppers for helping me through the process, and when asked what was my favorite thing during the whole process I would say a bar-B-Que I went to on a visit. Then I would get ready to choose and say one second please, walk behind the curtain and grab a bag then walk back to the table flip it over and pull out an OSU hat and wear it damn proud. I would flip off everyone there and yell F%^& You SEC and you to ESPN, and would then tell Michigan to start lubing themselves for November. Then say that Brady Hoke offered me $50,000 dollars and would que the fireworks to start shooting off in the stadium I secretly set up. Would then leave the stadium during the game and go immediately to these boards to see everyones reaction.
Edit: I would also spend the $50,000 dollars Hoke gave me on tissues to be sent to Ann Arbor so everyone can have something to wipe their tears with.
14 more maybe.
His mother is going to be on the visit with him now. She said at first neither parent could make it due to conflict, but has since changed.
Are you saying your cousin is a huge OSU fan, or Sammons?
Come on brah, to troll you have to make it believable. Your post history makes it obvious. Keep working on it though.
It gets very annoying how much stock people put into one season. Before they won the B1G this year no one ever said this stuff now you see it everywhere. Hasn't Luke Fickell put the most LB's in the league in the same years as him?
My out of the blue prediction.
Write it down and save it because I have a crystal ball.
If Mark Stoops has some success at Kentucky, I definitely could see a hire like him.
I believe they went undefeated and lost in the 3rd round of playoffs last year.
That is what I believe as well.
If we get DeBerry, would he stay at LB though? I believe 247 has him at 255 lbs already if I remember correctly.
Would be kind of neat.
