Would love for this kid to become a monster on the DL and be a future first round pick in the NFL some day. These are the types of kids you root for! The kids that want to work for everything & not have everything handed to them.
Honestly, I know I might take some heat for saying this because Josh King & Auston Robertson were both Defensive Ends, but why didnt OSU bring them, redshirt them, add some weight on them & a year with the team, they could be some big time defensive tackles. Both are already pushing 260-270 lbs. kyree Campbell is also another guy im surprised we arnt going after. Or how about Prince Sammons. I read somewhere awhile back that OSU would of liked to add weight on him considering he is 6'8 he would be a HUGE force in the middle.
I think a defensive line class of Cooper, Barrow, Bosa, Hall, Campbell, King, Robertson & Sammons, would of been crazy. Not landing them all, but I would think take everyone but Barrow and Campbell as back up plans
Im not an SEC fan at all. But I love what Ole Miss is doing. Root for them any time I can because Im tired of seeing Bama, Auburn, Florida, LSU & Georgia running the SEC. So I pull for Ole Miss & Miss State. I would for Kentucky as well IF they didnt have such a strong recruiting pitch here in Ohio (not saying they get the best guys, but they get alot of Ohio boys).
That being said, if we cant land this guy, which I feel like scholarships are tight with who we currently have looking to join, then let this guy come to the Big Ten or stay at Ole Miss & help run down the Bamas of the SEC
No he didnt! Michael Jordan played for the Bulls! Gosh!
Lol. Not at all. Just saying it would be the highest ranked OL
I understand what everyone is saying. And i agree that I only want guys that want to be Buckeyes and know what they want. Guys that want to win National Championships!
Im just saying according to the rankings, landing them guys would of been nice. I just hate the fact of top Ohio players leaving Ohio. BUT it is what it is and it wont change. Just curious to see how these guys would look in the S&G had they wanted to be apart of the best damn team in the land
I read soooooo much about how Ohio State wants to add some big time tackle prospects this year, and Ive read several places how Josh King & Auston Robertson may both out grow the defensive end position and end up at tackle.
Im confused as to why we have not went after Robertson & King as future tackles??? Robertson & King are more realistic gets than Gary & the kid from Georgia.
A defensive line class of Hall, Cooper, Bosa, Robertson & King would be crazy ridiculous!!!! And I even read how Hall could grow into a defensive tackle. Should of just went after them 5, gives you the greatest defensive line class ever & gives you versitility for each guy to get big & move inside if need to be. I dont see any big time tackles above Robertson & King that really want in the class. Just never understood that part
Give me Cupp and the kid from Dublin Coffman. Two very underrated tackles in my opinion!
I understand we have a few higher targets in the 2016 class & we have a great stand with a bunch of 2017 WRs but as far as Im concerned, you take Layne for 2016 & go full court press on Mack & Corley hoping to land one. If we land both, then great! Neither are guys you want to say no too! Find room for them just like any other stud that wants in. BUT just remember Mack or Corley are a for sure thing. Nobody ever really is & as far as 2017 goes, what if something happened & we completely whiffed on most of our high targets??? I just dont see how you dont go after Layne, recruit for the moment & worry about the other receiver targets as they announce & their recruitments play out.
I think Layne & Mack/Corley to go along with Hawkins, Hill & McCall would be an amazing WR haul!
Its just hard to believe we really passed on Layne. Not saying we didnt pass on him, but its just hard to believe. He is everything we have been wanting the last how many recruiting cyles due to his height, ability & potential to be a top redzone receiver. Especially from the state of Ohio. I just dont understand.
Thanks for the help. Now, silly question that I dont know the answer too, but is their any buckeyes on the trees at this time to pick some up?
Ive seen an article or two on each Ohio State site I know. Go to his 247 profile, im sure there are stories on his profile to read as well.
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
