Every school is going to say "oh this 3-star is really a 5-star" and that's great spin but Ohio State has had a real good recent track record of finding low-rated recruits that are actually great players.  Bradley Roby and Jonathan Hankins were both ranked lower than Robert Landers on rivals and both turned out to be star college players and high NFL draft picks.

I don't think every 3-star Ohio State signs is going to turn into an All-American, but when there's already 23 players in a very full class and they choose to make room for a 3-star player I'm willing to believe they did it because they see a Hankins-level-talent in the guy.

11 of our 24 commits are on the offensive or defensive lines.  That is some serious beef added to the roster!

Comment 16 Dec 2014

This is an unbelievably talented class.  They're one of the 4 best teams in the country as RS freshman and sophomores.  Imagine how good these players are going to be next year after more development, much less how improved the team will be by the 2014 class getting ready to go.

Those projections are always high.  If he goes pro good on him but if I was his agent I'd encourage him to put more film up next year.  Remember how Jonathan hankins was told he'd be a 1st rounder but went #49.  He's a starter in the NFL not even making 7 figures, bet he wishes he could have had a year to improve his draft stock.

I'll hazard a guess.  There were 6 DBs in a class that's getting tight.  One 3-star left last week.  Looks like another might be getting the nudge from the coaches to explore all options.  Its the sad part of recruiting but I think the way I read this is Davis wants to be a buckeye but might have been informed he should explore his other options.

Couldn't agree more, 2 Cass Tech recruits in 2 years is a nice pipeline opening up.

And with Michigan hitting the reset button 3 times in the last 10 years the recruits these days don't even remember a time where stability and winning was a part of Michigan football.  All they know is that Michigan is in the same turmoil it's always been in their whole football life, Ohio State is on the main stage, and now their classmates are going to Ohio State.

The math just didn't work.  We had 6 DBs committed in this class and 4 of them were 3-stars.  Eventually someone was going to do that math and decide they'd have a lot better shot at playing time by avoiding that log jam.

Hope this kid becomes a star wherever he goes (unless it's Michigan), best of luck!

I love the play where Bennett bounced like a bowling ball off of 3 different pulling blockers, occupying them all, and then tackled Gordon for a 2 yard loss.  That was just amazing to see him jump by a guard, shed the block of a pulling guard, then give a shoulder to the pulling tight end to throw him off creating a massive pile of Wisconsin bodies before lunging at Gordon and making the TFL himself.

Comment 09 Dec 2014

Outside of their star freshman tackle, Alabama's entire line is composed of unheralded 3-star recruits.  If Michael Bennett plays like he did against Wisconsin he's going to eat Alabama's interior o-line alive.

The best way to stop a great wide receiver is to make sure the QB is on the ground before he can toss him the ball.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Alabama didn't play hungry this year, they just played.  Alabama doesn't play like they want to win, they play like they expect to win.  Don't be surprised if Ohio state brings an intensity that bama can't match.
