The fact that Cupp hasn't committed would lead one to believe that his offer isn't committable. So you really don't need room if you aren't taking his commitment.
Comment 30 Jul 2015
We will see if it a committable offer or not on whether he commits or not. If he commits shortly then it is a legit offer, if he doesn't then it isn't a real offer like many OSU puts out.

Totally don't get why anyone is upset with Dantonio. When you commit to Dantonio , you are asked if you are positive you want to be a Spartan. You are then told you are to shut down all recruiting or you could be dropped. It is a loyalty thing. If you visit a school after getting permission from Dantonio, that is different than going to a rival camp and competing for an offer from a rival school. I suspect if a kid committed to OSU went to Michigan and competed for an offer and got dropped by Urban, most of you would be supporting Urban. If a guy is engaged to a woman and tries to sleep with her sister, would you all be upset with his fiancé when she dumped him ?

I heard St. Ed's backed out of playing us.

But IMG Academy will have them more prepared to get on the field than any High School program. Also Iron sharpens Iron. They will be practicing against and playing against the best players in the nation, which will make them better. I don't hear any complaints about St. Thomas Aquinas on here. They tried to have my son come play for them 6 months before IMG Academy did. The difference is, IMG Academy doesn't sneak recruit and are not eligible to play for a state championship. But Aquinas can. No team is forced to play IMG like they are Aquinas. And no team in Florida has to beat us to win a Florida State Championship, like they do with Aquinas.

The Desoto game is going to be a tough game, especially in DeSoto Texas. We have tons of talent, but they have talent that has played together since 1st grade. Week 2 hopefully we gel as a team. But, we weren't afraid to play the best, especially so early in the season. Funny so much hate on a Buckeye board, we are the Bucks of High School football.
Comment 20 Jul 2015
They have some kids paying 74k and some paying 0. It is a private Academy, they are free to do as they like financially for their players.
Comment 20 Jul 2015
Our defense should be greatly improved since last season. Every starter on our defense is a D1 player, don't think that was the case last season.
Comment 20 Jul 2015
True Buckeye fan aren't you. You have at least two players on IMG Academy that are going to be Bucks, and you have one from Desoto. I am sure Gerald and Barrow are thrilled with the support you are showing them.
Comment 20 Jul 2015
We attempted to play Gorman and St. Thomas Aquinas, neither would schedule us. I guess it is better to call yourself the best than it is to earn it. We play probably the hardest schedule in the country. We open with Mirimar on August 30 at 2 on ESPNU and the following week we fly to Desoto Texas. IMG wants to play the best of the best.

Apparently you have no clue as to what you are talking about. The academics at IMG Academy are very hard. The Academy has many Japanese and foreign students who attend there. We as a country have dropped in education across the world. If a Japanese student is paying 75k a year to go to school, they expect the academics to be to their standards. My son is a 4.2 GPA student at IMG Academy. The school and the training is definitely a grind. I can assure you that any kid playing for IMG Academy will be ready for College football academically and athletically. They will be ready for the grind.

To me it is like getting engaged to a girl and her going to other men's apartments and seeing if she thinks she can do better up until the wedding date after accepting and wearing the ring. What happened to loyalty ? Don't make a commitment until you are ready to be committed.

Jango is a 4.5 kid , but is very quick vertically. Very quick pro agility( Sub 4) and L Cone ( 6.86). Would love to see Jango and Tucky on the same team. Very much liked him last year at MSU Camp, which had Jango, Tucky, and Connor.  Jango will be at Sound Mind Sound Body and then he will Camp at OSU . IMG Academy has him competing everyday against the best. If IMG Academy was a recruiting class, they would be the third best class behind FSU and OSU.  He is coming to earn an offer from the best. Good luck to Tucky in recruiting and track.

LB: Jango Glackin: A sophomore with a bright future out of Lebanon (Ohio) High, the 6-foot-2, 197-pound Glackin ran a 4.58 in the 40-yard dash with a very impressive sub. 4.1 shuttle. His athleticism carried over to 1-on-1s where he was one of the top cover guys.

Jango is at IMG Academy getting better everyday. His film at Lebanon didn't reflect his athletic ability due to his assignment at Lebanon and coaching. Both have been rectified. He is receiving the best High School coaching you can find and sharpening his skills at practice against some of the best recruits in the country. Just being a starter on that roster means he is a standout player. He has legit 4.5 speed, but his side to side speed is what makes him special. He has a sub 4 shuttle, 6.89 L cone, and a 37 vertical. Speed side to side is more valuable than 40 time, which Jango's is still very good. He received 9 offers at camps between his Sophomore and Junior year. During his Junior year he received 0 offers because of how he was not used and the way he was played. He leaves for IMG and receives 8 offers since being there. He has improved drastically and is being used to make plays and strike all over the field. The staff loved Jango at Camp, but it didn't show on his film. Not his fault, he had to do as his coaches wanted. Playing with and against the best players in the Country will only make him better. He will also be graduating early and heading to College as an early enrollee . It would be nice to see Jango with his new teammates (Tyler Gerald and Milik Barrow) and his old teammates ( Justin Hilliard and Jake Hausmann). Hopefully Coach Fickell is impressed with Jangos progress when he visits IMG later today.

Trust me his mother wasn't happy when I picked the name Jango.  Anyway, IMG Academy has already made a huge difference in the JMan. He was already fast, and is now faster. He has always been very explosive with a 37 vert and moves very well side to side. His L Cone was a 6.86 and his pro agility was a 3.98. With the daily workouts and the constant 7 v 7 against the #1 tight end in the country, and his teammate running back committed to Notre Dame, Jango has also improved his game dramatically . His Junior film didn't show his ability due to how Lebanon made him just contain the outside of the weak side of the field, FROM THE OUTSIDE IN !!!. IMG will have him flying all over the field making plays ,and they will use his speed and let him be aggressive and strike. He ran for over 12 yards a carry his Sophomore year, they ran him one time for 16 yards his junior year. That is my main problem with film, you have no idea what the player has been assigned to do by his coaches, you cant gauge a player unless it is against equal competition, and it is hard to compare a well coached kid from a poorly coached one. Being with great coaches on the field and in the gym have definitely made drastic improvements in Jango.  And his teammates all improve each other. " Iron sharpens Iron " Jango , Hilliard, and Hausmann were all teammates once, don't be surprised to see the St. Sues connection reunited to do what they do best , WIN.

I think OSU will wait and have most the backers Camp. I am sure a lot of OSU offers are not committable .

Comment 22 Jan 2015

It is a way of slow playing a recruit. If the kid turns out to be a great recruit they can tell the recruit we offered you way back when, if he doesn't they never give him a spot. To me it is like a way of hedging your bet on a recruit. The recruit can report the offer, no one knows if it is committable or not, and the school can tell them it is committable later or never let them commit.  My son has one, I didn't report or list it. To me they aren't offers.
