Is it me or did this kind of come out of nowhere? I got the impression from many OSU writers that Jordan was a long shot. It just goes to show how amazing this staff is. What a great addition to an already super talented class. Welcome to the family Big Fella.

"There was only one team with their hands on their knees in the fourth quarter, and it was the same team that lost." So true. Well put DJ

Urban had been pretty good about replacing kids they miss on with someone of equal or better talent. Not worried at all. Good luck to the kid at ND. Go Bucks!!!

I really hope the grey shirt was agreed upon before signing day. It would be a Scumbag move to hit a kid with that after he has signed his LOI.

The kid is built like a brick shit house, he runs like the wind, has very good grades and by all accounts he is exactly the personality type that Urban wants in the locker room. Think about it for a second, out of all of the players that he could attempt to get rid of why would he pick Dean? Isn't it more likely that there is more permanent damage to his knee than was previously thought? Dean had all of the measurables and skills that a coach dreams of in a corner or safety. I just don't buy the reasoning that he was let go because of numbers.

An incoming freshman not getting medically cleared is not what i would consider attrition. And you should care about how outsiders view us. Especially high school coaches and potential recruits. Don't think for a second that other programs won't twist this and use it for negative recruiting. Remember that one of Dean's teammates is currently committed to OSU. That just gave other programs ammunition to attempt to flip him.

I'm not a conspiracy theory guy but I don't like the way this can appear to people outside of the program and fan base. With the numbers crunch going on it certainly can be interpreted as something more than it is. I know how we perceive things when Alabama is tight on numbers and guys suddenly are given medical hardships. Now I'm not saying anything shady went down because nobody really knows why he wasn't cleared. If it is indeed because of his knee and other teams clear him I do think it will and should raise questions. However if it's a heart issue I commend the staff for catching it and still honoring his scholarship. I guess time will tell. Either way I hope he has success in life.

Not surprised he put on 20pds. Usually when a kid commits he is given a workout/diet regiment. To me this just shows that Ward has the motivation and competitiveness that Urban looks for. I'm pretty excited that he is Buckeye.

Thanks Squirrel

I've been following recruiting pretty hard since 2001. I'm actually kind of embarrassed I missed that one. Thanks for the kind words. I'll make sure to triple check next time so I don't make myself look like some newbie douche nugget. Thanks for not beating me up too bad.
