Spoken like someone suffering from Stockholm Syndrome
Would the staff accept a commitment from Wallace if he wanted in this weekend?
They appear to weigh the same so that may also add to the confusion.
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.
He actually committed the day my grandma died. I'm guessing I never caught the news because I wasn't really paying any attention to recruiting for a week or so. Sorry if I wasted your time. My bad.
The first article that popped up said although he is committed he is still listening to Maryland. I guess that's something to keep an eye on. Thanks Dave. Not sure how I missed this one.

I'd say the lack of development by the upper class man is the problem. I'm not overly impressed with Thad's ability to coach these guys up. It seems like the longer kids stay in the program the more they regress. The big men are soft and lack any kind of aggression. All in all one of Thads worst coaching jobs since he's been here. He can however recruit his ass off.
This is correct. The Deftones even named a song after that cheat code.
I really hope the staff can land one elite natural DT that can occupy multiple blockers to give our LB's a chance to make plays. I'm talking about a Hankins type of DT. I was hoping Carter would've been that guy and Hill still might evolve to that type.
I really like Thad. He is an awesome recruiter and he had won a lot of games. That being said I haven't noticed any significant development in any of the upper class man. In fact a few have actually regressed. I would love for Thad to bring in a new assistant that could toughen up our big men. They are as about as soft as they come.
I just got in trouble with my wife on this topic. I tried to compare my grief of finding out Jon was leaving to the passing of her parents dog.
Spencer. I think next year we will realize just how crucial his blocking was. He sprung a lot of those long runs Zeke had.
I thought maybe there was a glitch in the Matrix for a second.
Too bad Urban won't respond back because he doesn't run his own twitter account. He's too busy winning National Championships
What's bullshit is that you would be crushing Harbaugh if he did this to an Ohio kid but because it's OSU it's OK? Is it or is it not a fact that the kid was mislead? He certainly seems to feel that way. And if coaches deceived my son I would be upset as would any parent. Don't be a complete homer and pretend what happened was on the up and up.
Sounds to me like Wilcher is trying to weasel his way into a job at UM. Everyone involved here has dirty hands on both sides. What dumpster fire this turned into.
This was a shady move period and if that was my son I'd be furious with OSU's staff. If Harbaugh pulled this move everyone here would be killing him. If Weber wants out of his commitment they should let him. I hope he chooses to stick with it but I couldn't blame him if he wanted to back out.
I hope Drayton had the decency to personally call Weber to tell him he was leaving. I feel that Stan owed Weber that much.
A few people said the same about Zeke when he visited Missouri right before NSD. Losing Weber would be a big deal. We need a true RB in this class plus it would definitely increase our chances with 2016 recruits from his school.
Seems like the OSU offer was the one he really wanted and I'm happy for the kid that he received it.
It was also a 247 site that posted it first as far as OSU goes. Coincidence or is it a case of an OSU 247 writer leaking info to an Alabama 247 writer?
I have a few questions about how this Prince situation went down. Did the staff contact you or did Prince about keeping this hush hush? Did the same person contact other recruiting services and make the same request? Are you and other guys that cover OSU upset with the person that spilled the beans?Do you think the person that let it out will have issues with the staff and recruits in the future as a result of breaking that trust?
