None of those guys were bust but none of them got passed up by 3 star underclassmen either. I hope he does put it together. I'm certainly pulling for him.
Kind of bummed that Jashon Cornell's name isn't even mentioned. I really thought he'd at least crack the two deep by now. I never thought my two favorite Buckeyes would pass him up considering both Landers and Hamilton were last minute, 4th choice, 3 star offers. It's getting awfully close to being time to move Jashon into the bust category. 10 star Wednesday seems like it was a lifetime ago.
100% agree. We all hated it when people jumped to conclusions with Carlos and Zeke. Wait until all of the facts out.
Is it fair to expect to see the same effort from the basketball team as we get from the football team? I think so. I can deal with a team that is putting max effort but is just getting beat by better talent. I can't stomach a team that loses to inferior teams because of lack of heart. I appreciate everything Thad has done here but no one can say with a straight face that he got the most out of his players this year. Every time I turned on an OSU game this year I saw lazy and sloppy basketball. I don't expect OSU basketball to equal Kentucky basketball but i dont expect it to equal Kentucky football either. There is no reason why OSU can't breeze to 20 wins every year with the talent they attract and the schedule they play. I hope Thad can get this thing back on track next year but it's hard to be optimistic after the way this season ended.
It wouldn't have mattered if Troy Smith was our QB last year. Between the remedial play calling, the right side of the line not holding up or the receivers not getting separation JT was bound to struggle. And even when it seemed like JT was a little off the coaches made no attempt to give him a couple of easy pass plays to the TE or RB just to get him in rhythm. I'm hoping Wilson is able to develop plays that play to JTs strengths.
I love everything about Landers. I love that he was an underrated, undersized Ohio boy that worked his ass off to get his offer. I love that he doesn't take plays off and that he is disruptive whenever he is in the game. I'd love to see him starting.
You forgot to use the sarcasm font.
What is going on??? OSU is losing ginger offensive linemen at an alarming pace.
I found that strange too. He just stopped showing up? Someone had to of had the talk with him. I don't know this young man but he didn't appear to be the kind of kid that just gives up. I hope he is successful where ever he ends up at whatever he decides to do. Unfortunately the way Urban has been recruiting kids don't have much room for error. Injuries early in a career can really put kids at a severe disadvantage. It's really easy to get over recruited and lose your place in line at OSU.
It's absolutely insane that OSU might put 3 DB's in the 1st round one year after putting one in the 1st and one in the 2nd round last year. OSU is recruiting, developing and producing elite NFL talent on a level unlike anything I've ever seen and there are no signs that it is slowing down anytime soon.
He needs his ass kicked. Not just punched in the face but a really good ass beating to humble him a little.
That may of just moved him into the 1st round
Seeing this picture reminded me that Jim Tressel broke two of the best teams in college football. It's taken almost 10yrs for Miami and Michigan to even be considered respectable again.
I'm still partial to the old school Adidas Shell Toes.
Michigan's athletic department is $240 million in debt and they're taking their football team to Rome for spring practices? Makes total sense. I know when I'm buried up to my eye balls in debt I take a vaction.
It's possible all 4 commit to Kentucky but I'll bet anything that all 4 don't sign with them.
We were lucky enough to see what was probably the best season a saftey has ever played at OSU. It was so good that Hooker went from never starting a game to possibly becoming a top ten pick.
I think Hookers evaluation is low. He's the most athletic saftey to ever come out of OSU. He might not bring the wood as hard as Doss did but his run support is more than sufficient. And I may catch shit for saying this but I think Hooker had HOF potential. He is an absolute freak. If he stays healthy he will end up being the best saftey in football.
I can't believe 10 guys in Columbus would jump Darron Lee. He's Darron Lee!! And he was in Columbus!! Isn't there some kind of law in Columbus that assaulting a current or former Buckeye automatically adds years to your sentence? Something seems off about this
Terrible decision Danny's parents to let him get a tattoo when he was only 16. An even worse decision by his parents to allow him to attempt to cover it up 2yrs later.
All kidding aside, is there really a premium lounge and is there insider info posted there?
Been following Birm for a few years. Buckeyes are moving on is code for Urban saw something in the kids behavior that he didn't want in his program. Birm said the same thing about a 5 star WR from PA a few years ago. The kid came for a visit and the Buckeyes never contacted him again after he left. Birm said back then that Buckeyes were moving on. Later it came out that the kid was very disrespectful while on his visit and Urban wasn't having it. The kid ended up at Alabama. I'm guessing something along those lines happened with Robinson.
It seems like OSU is always the bridesmaid on these 330lb Monster DT. Urban has no problem landing under sized DTs or oversized DEs that he converts to DT. It would be nice if just once he could land a 5 star massive DT.
Totally agree. I am very excited to see how Fuller developes. Everyone needs to pump the breaks about any of the 2017 recruits starting from day one. Despite the amount of talent that left for the NFL there is still lot of talent stocked up. I have a good feeling about Fuller. I think he ends up with a tree in the Grove before he finishes his college career.
Hopefully Wilson can work something of those 50/50 balls that Mike Williams is making a living on into OSU'S offense. With Victor and Harris on the outside against 5'10" DBs he'd be foolish not to.
