ESPN has Simmons as a RB. Isn't he being recruited as a LB by everyone? Or maybe just OSU?
I will be fair to 247. In their predictions for bowl season, they have OSU beating Clemson in the playoffs and playing Bama for the title.
They just have multiple writers with opinions
I missed the deadline (I looked at my phone yesterday and it was right before the deadline)
If anyone sees this and decides to answer, do you think Meyer and Co. wish they had taken a few less guys in 2016 (no names of course) and had a few more scholarships available in 2017, or 2 in the hand vs 1 in a bush winning out all the time in CFB?
Oh good everybody will freak out now. OSU only has room for like 6 more guys anyway (not counting Sibley). Okaduh, Riep, Harris would be 3 then the WR stuff with Grimes will get worked out. He's a STA guy so the Bosas and CC will be in his ear. Add 1 more DE or DT abd maybe someone in the secondary and this class is done anyway unless we get a couple more spots.
247 said Grimes named OSU the favorite YESTERDAY
43/50...I'm a first round qb. I did it all in my head on my iPad so prob screwed up some multiplication
Why do people think Cornell has been at OSU for 5 years. Kid will be a rSO in the fall AND changed positions and put on 35 lbs or so.
Edit: just looked it up he's a 2015 guy who enrolled early. rFr who is already making plays
I said he was a rSO in the fall, which I think he is. He also came in as a DE and has moved inside
Yea being a rSO next year. FINALLY
And perhaps the truth is nothing like we think it is today
Was teammates with him at OSU. Kid came in without any acclaim at all and worked his ass off to be there.
Give me Gronk. Guy will answer all your questions truthfully and won't play political games. And he'd probably buy me a drink after
Yea I read that and thought perhaps Ward doesn't have the frame to really put on weight? To be honest, some of the best CBs in the NFL don't like to tackle, ask Prime time Sanders about that.
However, he was blowing plays up as a ST guy last year, so he at least doesn't shy away from contact
You do know this kid is top 10 in the country at his position and is a big time elite prospect right? Oh well now you do
Regarding the nfl scout. I figured the scout meant over the next 5 years he would rather have this talent than that on said nfl team
Why do I have to explain Sparty away? OSU has 2 national titles since 2002 in football. How many does MSU have in football and basketball?
We have had a couple of bad years in basketball for sure, but we have been one of the best 10 programs over the past decade. From 2010 through 2013 it was 16, 16, 4, 8. There are maybe 5 programs who have had a better run than that since 2010. Next year should be better (sweet 16 type year IMO), and then it's all about recruiting new talent in
My concern is the potential lack of foresight. Meyer and staff must have known their senior class this year was going to be small (maybe not 6 guys, but 10 tops with juniors leaving). You have 45 guys with freshman eligibility because you redshirted 80% of your blue chip recruits the last 2 years. This has to create a bottleneck and it is right now. You can see all the (R) next to names and then an entire "redshirt freshman" column. Either Meyer has to take smaller classes or actually play his true frosh.
Braxton has more of a total body of work with the ball in his hands. It is limited at WR, but there are dozens of highlights of him doing "wow" things with the ball in his hands. He's faster than Jalin, and has better 'quickness.' I think all of those things are making Braxton look good
The problem is this: If a staff is going to take 3 guys at a position, there are at least 3 guys they view as Tier 1. You have OSU taking 2-3 tackles, yet only have 1 as Tier 1. Therefore, you are saying that only 1 OT is a "cant miss" type guy they will leave a spot open for
So is this the #s you would take as well? For example, do you think OSU should only have 1 OT this class and that be Myers? I'm trying to get your thought process on why a guy like Wilson, who will likely be a 5*, isn't on your Tier 1 group for OT.
I like what you did, now I'm trying to get through the process of how you got there
I guess Moretti is really my significant beef. He's a tier 1 guy no matter how you slice it. You have 2 OTs in a game at all times, and he's top 15 in the class. There isn't a program in the country who wouldn't absolutely love to have a top 15 guy, and probably no program who would say no to him if he wanted to commit to them tomorrow. That signifies Tier 1 to me; a coach would never say no to him
I would say as of now, everyone who has committed to OSU is a "Tier 1" guy for Meyer and staff. It is early enough, and the class is small enough, that having Moretti as a Tier 2 guy doesn't seem fair, especially as he's a top 15 guy at the position. If you told me every year OSU would sign 2 top 15 tackles, I would hope everyone would be happy with that (as only 7 programs could realistically do that feat in any given year)
You have N. Bosa slated as a DT next year. I thought he would always end up there. Is that something the coaching staff believes, or do you think he gets his first shot at SDE? He just seems a bit more "stout" as a body type than Joey.
Texans. I'm a fan but their offense can use a guy like Zeke extremely effectively.
I mean he's a 4* running back and top 20 at the position. He isn't top 5 so I understand what you're saying, but he is an elite national guy who is seen as a top 200 guy in the country overall
Yea 247 moved Mack up to the #3 WR in the country, right around where he belongs it seems
