I see Terrell Hall in this class after reading up on him more & checking out his film. Kids a beast. Him opposite of Bosa would be crazy!!!
I think we will see a 2016 DLine class similar to this:
Bosa, King, Robertson, Cooper, Onwenu, Campbell, & Hall.
I see Sammons moving over to Offensive Tackle. King, Onwenu & Campbell being the Tackles & Bosa, Cooper, Robertson & Hall being the Ends
and in al honesty, I think we miss on Gary
I wish I could up vote the OP. i liked that video more than most I have seen for the 2016 playoff predictions.
Id say my predictions is: OSU, TCU, MSU & LSU.
With the 2015 class finished up. Lets hear some more opinions of those people who said they would wait
I understand what you are saying and appreciate the input. BUT were doing this for fun and to start discussion up for the 2016 class as the 2015 class is just about done with. Its always fun to try and predict the class. but I also posted in OP that I would like to read people's thoughts on the needs for the class and people's wish lists. I understand what you are trying to say, but that's not going to stop me and some other from wanting to have a little bit of fun and predict the next class along with discuss the needs and what not.
Hes listed as a DL ppayer, but could very much play Offensive Tackle in college
Atleast somebody here knows the rules of recruiting and knows what they are talking about! stupid Buckeye fans....... them Vol fans know everything!!!!
Ive read everywhere that the OSU staff is trying to land 2 TE's in the 2016 class. Hausmann was priority #1 & Luke Farrell is priority #2 & current commit Kierre Hawkins who is 6'4 220 could also play TE.
my last comment from the OP is the top 10 most needed guys but I took it down to 6 & Im going to explain why I picked each guy.
Nick Bosa - His talent speaks for itself and the thought of what Joey has accomplished and apparently Nick is even better is just astonishing!!! its crazy! ive read how Nick is apparently farther along and much better than Joey was at Nicks age. Joey is a BEAST, so I cant wait to see lil Nick!
Liam Eichenberg - the fact that he is a 5 star tackle from Ohio speaks for itself. but the fact that he goes to a big time catholic school and the need on the OL (before the 2015 class decided to take 5-6 guys). Also throw in the fact that OSU hasnt been able to land ELITE tackles in the past few years (yes we have gotten good/great OL, but not ELITE). helps with the in roads to Cle St. Iggy for the future
Tommy Kraemer - same thing as Eihenberg! BUT hes from Cincinnati where OSU hasnt had the greatest success. So a Kraemer flip could be HUGE for the recruiting of Cincy in the future & a steal from Notre Lame
Jake Husmann - Hes already committed but keeping his commitment will be huge. another Cincy kid that will help with future recruiting in that area of Ohio. but most of all, the lack of being able to land ELITE TE's has been crappy (other than if you count Hubbard as a TE). The need at TE is HUGE as well.
Josh King - BIG Midwest guy who could add weight and be that ELITE big time Defensive Tackle we havnt been able to land the past few recruiting classes. In the process keeping him away from Michigan State & Notre Lame.
Prince Sammons - Like I said about the Cincy boys above, getting an ELITE prospect from the area of Cincy would be HUGE. He can play anywhere along the DL along with being able to play Offensive Tackle. BIG TIME prospect who is very raw & has a high ceiling & cant wait to see what Pantoni & Mariotti would do with him in the S&C program
I agree. but its so hard to cut off someone in the OL class for 2016. You cant tell Eichenberg no obviously, being 5 star from Ohio. I really think eventually we flip Kraemer. something keeps telling me he will be in this class, my gut and you cant tell him no. We already got Gerald. Everything Ive read on Onwenu & Jordan is that the staff really likes them and wants them. Onwenu could move to the DL. I thought bout J Williams from DC in the class, but I see a guy like Jordan committing first and Williams staying close & going to Maryland.
10 guys I would LOVE to have in this class
1. Nick Bosa/ DE
2. Liam Eichenberg/ T
3. Tommy Kraemer/ T
4. Prince Sammons/ DL/OL
5. Jake Hausmann/ TE
6. Demario McCall/ HB/WR
7. Josh King/ DL
8. Brendan Ferns/ LB
9. Trayvon Mullen/ CB
10. Saivion Smith/ CB
My 2016 Class Predictions (25 Members):
QB - Jarrett Guarantano OR Dwayne Haskins
RB - Kareem Walker, Robert Washington
HB - Damario McCall, George Hill
WR - Austin Mack, Kierre Hawkins, Justin Layne, Donnie Corley
TE - Jake Hausmann, Luke Farrell
OL - Tommy Kraemer, Liam Eichenberg, Tyler Gerald, Michael Onwenu, Michael Jordan
DL - Prince Sammons, Jonathan Cooper, Josh King, Nick Bosa, Auston Robertson, Kyree Campbell
LB - Brendan Ferns
DB - Jared Mayden
Its going to be another Offensive & Defensive Line heavy class. Championships are won in the trenches!
Im relaxed. I was sort-of kidding as well. I apologize for the use of the word, swag. but hopefully you contribute. I would really like to read what you have to say on the topic as I know you bring alot to the site and like what you normally have to say
I understand and so am I. but while we wait for these last couple recruits thought Id bring up some discussion
I just put it because someone had a thread about the title of the 2016 class & the guy who posted it had the most upvotes. I wouldnt be surprised if a name comes out for a class similar like that for a class.
thats just rather stupid, not to add to a post/site because of a word in the post. I see people putting stupid comments on here all the time and people upvote one another for it. Never thought a word would stop a person from contributing to a post/site. my apologizes.
I wouldnt say the Glenville pipeline has dried up, just a lack of elite players this year and maybe a couple more.
BUT Jordan Overton, a 2016 recruit, who i believe is a 3 star, was from Glenville before transferring to Brush HS.
I prefer to just bank the schollie for 2016 as that class is loaded & we have so much talent banging on the door wanting in. OR we save it for 2015 for a guy like Prince OR Beckner OR Gustin
I want it to be Liam Eichenburg but I have a strong feeling its Ferns or McCall. Im pretty sure both visited this past weekend along with Eichenburg. I dont think Sammons or Layne was in attendance this weekend.
I read somewhere on twitter last night from a post by a reporter in Tennessee or a write for Ole Miss saying that Drew Richmond was quoted saying something about he will play where he fits best and play at a school he is most comfortable.
Im pretty sure he is still committed to Ole Miss. and if he is, why would this stuff be posted in a story and made a big deal about on twitter. If your already committed to a school why would you say something like that if thats the school your going to
Birm do u see Sammons not a Buckeye or aying offensive tackle?
I think its a nice pickup for ttun. I honestly think they are going to finish out there class with a solid class. Similar to where MSU & Nebraska & Wisky are sitting right now. around the 25-35 class in the nation. Yes they had a bad season, but bringing in Harbaugh cant be a bad thing, he has the name & will bring in some talent. This can only be good for the big ten imo
Swag16 is great for my vote
Shaun Wade, Bruce Judson & Danny Clark are quite the starting trio for the class. 2017 class along with 2016 might be Meyers best recruiting classes along with the 2013 class & hopefully the 2014 class.
We also lead for top Ohio stud Offensive Tackle Josh Myers along with Trevon Grimes, the big Florida WR target. Also in the top 2 (if not leading) for Richard LeCounte, Keyshawn Johnson Jr, Todd Sibley, Jeff Thomas, Marcus Williamson, Emmanuel Greene, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Emani Mason, Cam Spence, Danny Davis, Jordan McNair, & Connor Heyward. Leading for some big prospects right now with more to most likely pop up
2016 class is gona be a top 3 almost guaranteed. The state of Ohio is loaded, the Midwest is loaded & the amount of players that we lead for or are the top group for is crazy. I honestly see us taking a full class of 25 for 2016. Might sound like a lot, but everytime we think we are going to take a smaller class, Meyer surprises us. gota remember he knows more than us about whos leaving & whats going on with the players.
I see our 2016 class shaking out like this:
QB: Dwayne Haskins OR Jarrett Guarantano
HB: George Hill, Kareem Walker, Robert Washington
WR: Demario McCall, Justin Layne, Kierre Hawkins, Austin Mack, Nate Craig
TE: Jake Hausmann, Luke Farrell,
OL: Liam Eichenburg, Tyler Gerald, Michael Onwenu, Tommy Kraemer
DL: Nick Bosa, Josh King, Prince Sammons, Auston Robertson, Jonahton Cooper, Kyree Campbell,
LB: Brendan Ferns, Ethan Tucky,
DB: Jared Mayden, Damar Hamlin
The Defensive Backs for 2016 is the hardest position to predict IMO. Its hard to say what QB will be in the class as well. Sometimes my heart says Haskins, other times it says JG. Yes I think we will take 3/4 RBs in this class. McCall is the WIlson/Marshall hybrid. Hill could also see some time there. Walker is a full time RB & I believe Washington is as well. Washington is the real deal despite his rating, but as we have seen, ratings mean jack. I still believe we flip Nate Craig fro Auburn. After winning the National Championship & seeing what Ed W. has done for the Buckeyes with the OLine, I still see us flipping Tommy Kraemer. I see us keeping both 5 star OL from Ohio, especially if we have another strong year this upcoming season. I think we can all agree that we will have one hell of a Defensive Line haul for 2016, by far the best in the nation. LB's will be thin maybe 2 taken total. DB's is a straight shot in the dark.
