Dream finish for '17? Give me Browning and Okudah tomorrow and then top it off with holding onto Wade and adding Wilson, Smith, Akers, Holmes, and Sheffield.

Realistically? I still think Browning and Okudah. Wade sticks. Tufele. Munford. Bell.

I forget when it was coined but someone used to call him "The Pontiff"...I like that so it gets my vote.

I also refer to him as Ashtabula Jesus, Urbz, and Coach Mayas when conversing about OSU football. But The Pontiff is a distinguished nickname.

I'll side with the minority and realists; Recruits will eat the Jumpman up (regardless of whether or not it has place on a football jersey). This is a good move by Michigan.

As for the jerseys themselves, thumbs up. Looks closer to the traditional Michigan look I'm accustomed to seeing instead of that Adidas garbage. 

Am I Michigan fan? Hell no. I do recognize this as an upgrade though for UM. Now they have to prove there is substance behind their new flash.

Etienne Sabino, Curtis Grant and Robert Rose for me. Although Sabino and Grant stepped it up late; They were guys that I expected to be in the Katzenmoyer mold at tOSU.

I agree re: Bartram just reporting other site info...The other poster, however, "Moonmadness" seems to have a pulse on the program or an inside track and is not posting info from other sites IMO. 

As it pertains to Wyatt Davis, the guy taking the info from Rivals is "confident" while Moonmadness is weary of the news of an impending verbal, citing the numbers crunch with limited schollies and the OSU staff having to re-shuffle their recruiting big board if they take an unexpected commitment from him.

It's called the Ozone. I'm not sure of rules so not going to direct link. Pretty easy to find; the information is in the forum section. A bit old school but the info is usually reliable.

Birm, simply put, you are the reason I visit the 11W site so frequently. In my opinion, you are the best at what you do; You took reporting and opining on Buckeye recruiting to the next level. I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors; success will follow you wherever you are headed to. (Selfishly, I hope it is somewhere where I still may be able to get news on all things Ohio State football recruiting.)

Thank you for your 3 1/2 years here at 11W. I'd venture I speak for all of this awesome 11W community - words can't express how much I (we) appreciate your hard work and contributions to this site, from on-the-scene reporting to the nightly Hurry Up. Long live the Lord of Whispers!

Live in Apex/Holly Springs near Cary, NC. I usually go watch the games at the MacGregor Drafthouse in Cary. When I'm in Raleigh, I go to the Leesville Taproom. I don't know of any Cavs bars per se but if you find one in the area, let me know!

Can't get/keep them all...

I'm going to venture a guess that the OSU staff (currently with the #1 recruiting class in the nation for '17) knows the names of the players they really want to be in their class very well.

This was done a couple of weeks ago IMO (prob even before Scott was fired). Good move by LA.

Comment 29 Apr 2016

Really happy for Jaylon Smith. Awesome stuff! Hope he fully recovers and becomes the LB everyone knows he can be.

Comment 26 Apr 2016

I wouldn't wish the Browns on anybody, especially not Zeke

Urban: *Looks at the pants, looks up at Harris, without saying a word*

Harris: "Coach, I'm not sure what to say...kinda awkward. I guess wearing blue really is an issue round here..."
