Tyrece Speaight plays at St. V with Booker and Campbell. He makes plays every time I watched them play. I figured he'd be a Safety at the next level but maybe it's too early to call.

This is too bad. I remember seeing him almost make an interception during the spring game (I think he'd admit he should have caught it) but he seemed to put himself in the right position, which is sometimes more than half the battle for a safety. Safety is such a thin position right now that I hate to see anyone go, regardless of their placement on the depth chart. Good luck where ever you end up Jayme.

Good call on Dre'mont Jones. I am gathering from the numerous Buckeye sites that his mind is clear it's just a matter of when he feels comfortable pulling the trigger.

The LOI deadline passed last night (March 31) without a signature. McDowell will sign some form of agreement with MSU (Edit: called a "Big Ten tender") that does not require parental signature. This will allow him to receive financial aid and to begin courses at MSU in either the first or second summer term.  Source

I think he's referring to this. Click Forum -> Recruiting Forum. On that page the threads are default sorted by "Replies." The method we are accustomed to (and is more logical IMO) is to sort by most recent reply ("Last Reply"). Every time i change it, it automatically gets set back to the default sort.

Be gentle though, we're all still trying to get used to this new format and where things are. It's easy to miss things

Comment 09 Feb 2014

You're right. I pretty much toss out the writers designated to one school who pick their own school (this early in the process, anyway) and focus on the national guys at this point. I saw Wiltfong predicted Beckner to USC and Wiltfong had the highest % of correct predictions last year if I recall. At least one national guy had Beckner to OSU. Fingers crossed

Took me a while but I found it. Under the recruiting tab at the top there are three stories listed and to the right of that are five tabs- Football recruiting, football scholarship grid, basketball recruiting, basketball scholarship grid, and recruiting forum. May be PC only? Hope this helps.

As others have noted, very difficult to scroll within a forum on iPad/iPhone due to freezing. I could not send my forum comment on my iPad, had to switch over to PC. 

Also, unable to log-in on iPad while in Landscape. Could be user error, but it wouldn't allow me to click user name. Worked fine when I switched to Portrait. 

I don't know if it's by design, but the default sorter in forum is to sort by number of replies rather than most recent reply. Every time I switch it manually it's switched back to default the next time I try.

Not a great year for a rather unknown RB to get that Buckeye offer. 2015 is the year of the running back- Buckeyes are shooting big nationally and there are a lot of talented Midwest guys that the staff may be thinking they can fall back on. 

I look forward to watching his progress though, hopefully he gets those D1 offers and maybe he can get the Buckeye interest.

10 ATH Jerome Baker

9 DE Terry Beckner Jr.

8 LB Justin Hilliard

7 QB Torrance Gibson

6 OT Drew Richmond

5 RB Damien Harris

4 DT Tim Settle

3 LB Ricky DeBerry

2 CB Minkah Fitzpatrick

1 RB Larry Scott


Would love to see the 11w staff participate for comparison. 

Comment 07 Feb 2014

Regarding James Daniels, I think Ohio State is going to have a tough battle with Iowa for his services. Daniels brother is a RB at Iowa (same story as Hilliard) and he has interest. His Dad was a Buckeye though, so that leans in our favor. 

I think if it were up to Meyer we would take less Ohio kids than we did in 2014 simply because Ohio doesn't seem to be all that strong in 2015 at this point. If we miss out on our national targets though we may see the number of Ohio kids rise. 

Comment 07 Feb 2014

You may be right, but I think Meyer is still trying to build depth and find playmakers at the position. 2013 and 2014 classes have done a lot, but I wouldn't be surprised to see 3 LBs in 2015. 

Comment 05 Feb 2014

Awesome! I know he was LJ's guy. Does he project as a WSDE like Holmes or would he bulk up and move to SSDE?
