Wow! TTUN part on the way already? That is great work. Also, I think there would be a great deal of interest on potential reports from you on Wisky and Nebraska. I did not realize that Peppers was so small. I realize that athleticism is very important for the outside LB position, but with such little size, it will be interesting to see how they will use him. Also, I wonder how soon his higher-ranked 2016 recruits will see the field and what type of role will they play.

It wil come exactly as you predict. And I feel sorry for the TTUN recruits. Thinking back to my own maturity level (as it was) while I was a teenager, I probably would have been impressed with Harbaugh's smoke and mirror parlor tricks and "tough talking" as well. In the absence of onfield success, these gags mean nothing, but that can be hard for kids to understand. These kids are building their futures on sand. It really is sad.

I didn't know that Gary visited Clemson twice. I really hope you are right and that Clemson is a real option. My feeling is just that Gary's mom controls his recruitment and she, for whatever reason, is smitten by Partridge (sp?) and/or Harbaugh. My feeling is that Gary actually does not prefer TTUN at all and, if it were up to him, he would indeed go elsewhere.

Didn't she also say the USC visit was a game-changer? I think she was instructed by JH to blow smoke so it will appear as more of a "win" on NSD. As far as I know, there is no talk about USC now. Seems like just the crappy cheap parlor trick JB would use. Also, I think Gary has been recruiting for Hoodlum Jim for some time now.

A man can dream, yes, but let's not get our hopes up too much.

I have noticed that most players committing or highly interested in OSU tend to drop immediately in the 247 composite. Examples are Victor, both of our TEs, Jordan and Gerald, as well as Haskins and even Bosa slightly (Mack and Cooper seem to be exceptions). I have no idea why this appears to be the case, but perhaps it prevents Davis from climbing in the rankings as well. But no matter, Davis by all reports I have seen is excellent. I think he will contribute considerably to our secondary in the coming years.

It really is a war of philosophies:

Coach Meyer: Deal with recruits honestly, promote a hard work ethic, challenge recruits to maximize their potential, take on all challenges no matter how hard.

Coach Harbaugh: Use weird, creepy tactics to make a media splash, lie to recruits, show the world your own glory is greater than your players' well-being, entitlement (i.e. glory without work), cowardice.

Maybe there is a reason why Coach Meyer has multiple championships while Coach Harbaugh still holds an empty bag while making excuses?

Concur. Lots of Buckeyes I love out there, but Ginn takes #1 for me. I held my breath literally every time he touched the ball.
