I'm not going to lose any sleep over this development. There's nothing the fans can do to change a recruit's mind. But being negative is childish and a waste of time.
Just my $0.02 but the whole "Come to OSU or lose to OSU" thing is over-played. I'm not personally attacking anyone; I just think the statement is said in poor taste because we have a spoiled fan base that occasionally gets a taste of sour grapes. This is the nature of the (recruiting) beast. We will always have to fight off other schools (especially Michigan) if we want to sign top-rated recruiting classes.
Anyone who is sitting on this thread and debating whether or not Kareem Walker is a good football player because news surfaced that he is taking an OV (or even an UV) to UM (or any school for that matter) should be ashamed. This guy is a HELL of a player (from what I can see on tape) and one that the Buckeyes would be extremely excited to have for the next 3-4 years! The staff obviously wants him and the fans do to. There is little need to get defensive of OSU because he is taking a visit elsewhere. I'm sure there are more visits coming as well. It looks bad on the OSU fanbase when we take to the Internet to voice displeasure over a guy taking visits to other schools.
If he signs with Michigan or anywhere else than OSU, I personally will be bummed out because I think he can be a stud here but I'm not going to take it personally and then come bash Kareem Walker on an Internet message board. Kids do what's right for them to help them become men. Nobody can fault them for choosing another school if they sign elsewhere.
At any rate, I figure my rant should end now...Go Bucks! Beat Maryland!
