Is my math right that this commitment shoots us up to the #2 team in 24/7's recruiting rankings?
Lots of defensive line recruits needed. By my count we're going to have a minimum of 9 players leave in the next 2 years.
- Graduation 2017 (Hill, Sprinkle, Lewis Holmes)
- Graduation 2018 (Slade, Thompson)
- NFL 2017/2018 (Hubbard, Bosa, Jones)
That 9 doesn't even account for any injuries/transfers that might happen. It's time for recruits to sign! sign! sign! with Ohio State. With 2 in the bag we still need another 6-8 defensive linemen in the next 2 recruiting classes just to keep pace!
At a football school all we need the basketball program to be is not an embarrassment. And we're getting very close to embarrassment territory.
Now we finally know what Kellyanne Conway was referring to!
It's tough to be a 3-star recruit at Ohio State these days.
Unfortunately that's not how it works. Once you tear an ACL once you are statistically way more likely to re-tear than the average population.
I just get the feeling the Devin Smtih story will end up being a lot like the Tedd Ginn story. Showing the promise but hampered early in hisa career only to turn it on and become a big player for someone down the line.
There's few better in the league than Dez Bryant to teach Noah how to use his size and strength. Good luck bro, be the next Michael Thomas!
As long as players aren't getting paid in the NCAA and aren't playing in the NCAA playoffs I support draftees sitting out their bowl games. If they are amateur athletes then they don't owe college football the risk of giving up their health and millions for nothing.
But if you are going to play, get the insurance!
If I owned an NFL team I'd give Urban a blank check to be my general manager. Urban is finding 1st round draft picks IN HIGH SCHOOL. He may be a great on-field coach, but as great as he is he's still underrated as Ohio State's General Manager. He might be the best evaluator of talent in the world.
I love Urban so much.
How did we manage to not win the national championship this year with 3 defensive backs who were 1st round talents? NFL teams don't have 3 first-round draft picks in their secondary... how did we screw this up?
1) If you want to join Ohio State you'd better commit early
2) If a recruit is worried about competition he'd be much more worried about the 4 CBs the team added last year than the 2-3 in this class. But I'd imagine the sales pitch of "we've had 4 or 5 first round defensive backs drafted in the last 4 years" is more where these recruits are focusing.
A top-200 ranked player despite no Junior film and no ACL? I'm impressed, can't wait to see how high he ends up getting ranked when he's actually out there making plays in the Fall!
Very under the radar guy, only a top-200 player in the entire country... but I'm glad they took a chance on the guy hahahahaha God I love Urban!
Goodness Urban leave some recruits for the rest of us!

What's worse, wearing Khakis while playing an outdoor sport or being the kind of wimp that needs a protective vest while playing paintball like a 110lb girl?
You know what this means... boom incoming!
