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.
Is there a link to buy this shirt just so i can have fun burning it when i tailgate for the National Championship?
heres link as well http://247sports.com/Bolt/2016-WR-Snelson-Opens-Up-Recruitment-33520930
I really love our chances with having Gibson on board now. You have to think Gibson will get him here as they seem to be very close & always together. Snelson is a stud & would look great in the S&G!!!! Go Bucks! Go getem Urbs!
Thats not actually Eichenburg. Its McCollough. Who ever tweeted that picture, actually tweeted to the wrong Liam. Lol it was Hilliard I thought.
I agree with you Mike that we most likely end up with McCall, Washington to join Hill. Which in my eyes, all 3 are studs & great playmakers. Thats an impressive playmaker class alone, let alone the TE's & WR's Urban will get in this class. 2016 is loaded in Ohio, the Midwest & OSU is in on alot of national guys. 2016 will be special.
would make a great story if he ended up in Columbus after all.
BUT check out his teammate at Running Back. I know OSU isnt in need of a juco RB, but wow this kid is a beast. he either runs around you, through you, or over you. Id like to see where this kid ends up as well.
I think we are in serious need of a true Left Tackle such as Drew Richmond.
Terry Beckner would be my defensive pick. Dude is a straight freak!!!!
I think we just need to worry about beating MSU this Saturday & winning out before we even think about playoff rankings & the playoffs. Not trying to be that guy. but we just need to continue to take it one week at a time & focus on the game ahead of us before playoffs pop in our head.
I think we should just go hard after Scott & accept his commitment if he wants in. Harris' recruitment seems to be looking better & better for Kentucky. & I'd rather now miss out on Scott & Harris while waiting on Harris in the process
yah im on the same exact page. but it dosnt take to me nothing but an article on how its live on the site. no video or anything as of now
I really hope we can land Taylor!
we got 19 commits, I have no idea who will be next. But I think we will finish with 24 maybe a 25 considering I think we end up with Gibson, Cager, Burrell, Wariboko, & I believe we flip Richmond. Garrett Taylor may be that 25 guy if the staff wants him.
I think adding 3 big OL like Burrell, Wariboko & Richmond would be crazy. but its a real possibility.
people keep forgetting Richmond grew up a HUGE Buckeye fan and is visiting for the Michigan game.
I completely agree. I guess I am just saying I see OSU landing both some how. even though Haskins said Gibson to OSU might change things for him. as much love as Haskins has for OSU & his passion for them, I dont see how he turns down his life long dream of becoming a Buckeye & running away from competition from Gibson & Burrow. He seems like a competitor & would deal with it, considering he COULD possibly end up starting over them some day.
Not necessarily. You bring Gibson in as a QB, and once he gets on campus, you give him looks at QB & some time with the WR's. A bunch of analysis have said Gibson could be one of the best WR's in years to come out of HS if he would focus on the position for college. So maybe after some reps with a guy like Barrett throwing to him for a few years & possibly Burrows or Haskins in the near future, he likes it. you never know what could happen once Gibson is on campus.
IF Baker flips from Florida to OSU which I think over time, he will......... I see the staff finding a way to bring in both like they planned all year & finding a to get both on the field at the same time when their time comes.
Yes I forgot Burrow being in this class. I dont know why he escaped my mind.
If what I put above is true & I was the staff, Id be telling Haskins that Gibson has a strong shot at being moved to WR due to Barrett only being a RSo when Gibson arrives on campus & his freakish athletic ability & ball skills making him a very good WR for Haskins to have as a weapon when it is Haskins turn to start.
I read somewhere that if Gibson does commit to OSU for 2015, it may push Haskins away for 2016. This may be the reason as to why Birm has made his choices.
I think Carlton Davis eventually becomes a Miami U Hurricane and I see Garrett Taylor taking his spot. I also feel like Damien Harris ends up in Kentucky even though OSU still has a chance, but I believe Kentucky is pulling away. I also feel like Ohio State has a very great shot to flip Offensive Tackle, Drew Richmond from Ole Miss. It might be a tough pull, but if he really enjoys the visit for scUM game, then I wouldnt doubt it, if he joins the class. I also believe Jerome Baker will flip to the good guys eventually.
I think the class ends with 24 prospects & they DO have a top 5 class after all.
This is a huge disappointment IMO. 5 star Ohio guy at a high position of need & he leaves the state. Long way to go for 2016 NSD, but it's not gona be easy at all!
So you don't want Damien Harris either?
