This is exactly the same reasons i posted in another thread about how I wish we would take 3-4 tackles this year because I feel like we keep bringing in a bunch of interior OL instead of 2-3 tackles a year or something along those lines. 

Id like to see them bring in Wray, Carman, then one of Petit-Frere or instate tackle Darian Kinnard. 

I also wouldnt be surprised to see Myers moved to right tackle or Michael Jordan moved out to tackle.

Was listening to the BM5 the other day (believe it was yesterday), and the guys on their both said they think Silvera may be the most underrated prospect in the nation, atleast at Defensive Tackle anyway. 

I agree. I was on 247 about 5-6 weeks ago and came acrossed Nesta, watched his film and instantly wanted him to magically be in OSU's class. My dad & talk recruiting all the time, told him to go check out his 247 profile & his highlight film. He called me back the next day and was like damn. Told him he will be a monster in college. He agreed & now he is both of our favorite uncommitted prospect.

heres to hoping he lands in columbus come NSD 2018.

Ive never understood why we are wanting to land Brown, Scruggs & Jones. Thats 3 interior guys with possibly 3 landed last year (Meyers, Davis & Munford) & 5 more guards in 2016 (Jordan, Wohlabaugh, Cupp, Gerald & Pridgeon) 

we lack the depth and proven players at Tackle, so i figured we would keep Davis, Meyers or Munford at Tackle, bring in Wray, Carman & another tackle or 2 instead of the interior guys. 

Comment 17 Jun 2017

Realistically I would honestly be complrtely fine with Wray, Jones, land Carman and go after instate tackle Darian Kinnard or Rasheed Walker and continue to go after Nicholas Petit-Frere (national tackle w/OSU in top 3) and lock down the OLine recruiting for this class. Need more guys on the edges than the interior.

I wouldnt continue to go after Verdis Brown or Fredrick Scruggs because numbers will be tight come NSD with all these other higher ranked guys at other positions of need UNLESS they plan on using Matt Jones along the DLine (where I think he needs to be). 

Comment 09 Jun 2017

I agree to an extent. 

I agree because the fact that I think OSU will/can land these uncommitted prospects: Kamryn Babb, L'Christian Smith, Jeremy Ruckert, Jackson Carmen, Verdis Brown, Juice Scruggs, Micah Parsons, Tyreke Smith, Matthew Jones, Nesta Silvera, K'Vaughn Pope, Anthony Cook, Tyson Campbell which is 13 guys to go along with 12 current commits. 

New rule only allows you to have a class up to 25 commits max. 

That leaves out guys that OSU has a great/better shot than people think out of the class like: Zamir White, Master Teague, Brennan Eagles, Alvonte Woodard, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Greg Emerson, Aeneas Hawkins, Palaie Gaoteote, Solomon Tuliaupupu, Patrick Surtain Jr, Tyreke Johnson, Houston Griffith and more. 

BUT Teague is as underrated as they get! But I dont see the reason or the need to go and try and land Teague & White to go along with Snead & Gill.

You would just think with the other positions of need & the talent they are in on, they would go after other guys than trying to land 3 rbs & 1 APB

Comment 07 Jun 2017

Id imagine it would help keep Woodbey! 

But also possibly help land this guy! http://247sports.com/player/darrell-simpson-83915

i know Ohio state right their near the top for Simpson. Would of been Oklahoma bound, but maybe Meyer makes a run for him to go along with Carmen, Wray, Matthew Jones & one of Scruggs or Verdis Brown 

Comment 04 Jun 2017

I understand what you're saying. But im asking what people think their class predictions will be come NSD. Which plenty of people do. I dont think this is any different than hundreds of people commenting their class predictions....

Comment 04 Jun 2017

Yup I just saw that today. Great rule to have as plenty of teams such as Bama and Tennessee happen to take 26-28 or like Tennessee took 30 in 2015, 28 in 2017, 32 in 2014, Miami took 27 in 2014. Bama took 29 in 2017, took 26 in 2012, 2013 & 2014. 

Comment 03 Jun 2017

Predicting he drops. Or Campbell & Griffith wants in and Banks get pushed out of the class

Comment 03 Jun 2017

DL- Parsons, Cox, T. Smith, Vincent, Silvera, Matthew Jones (6)

LB- Mitchell, Gant, either Pope or Gaoteote, Chatfield (4) 

DB- Cook, Campbell, Woodbey, Griffith, Proctor (5) 

call me crazy, but I feel like Meyer will make this class fit 26 commits. Also wouldnt be the least bit surprised if Meyer pulls off some crazy upsets and happens to land Surtain Jr or Tyreke Johnson and i think so, he will find room for them
