Other than who is already committed, I think as it stands now tOSU will land Okudah, Browning, Akers, Grimes, Martell, Lindsey, C.Young. They should land around 9 5*'s in the end. Because of the small numbers, it won't be 247 all time highest ranked class. I believe that is Florida 2010 at 323 points. This tOSU class should come in at around 315 points, with the most ever 5 *'s in one class.
If I felt I had NFL ability, I'd go to OSU. If I know that I probably wouldn't make it to the NFL, I'd go to Stanford. Major in finance or CS at Stanford, and you were a football player there, you'd be set.
Cali kids wanting to play in freakin' Nebraska!? Why the sudden attraction?
I am in medical school now. This isn't pertaining to DPJ in particular, but I think it is ridiculous that schools try to link the med school to recruitment. Med schools do not care at all that you were a recruited athlete. If you don't have the MCAT score you will not get in. Is the UM medical school willing to guarantee a spot to DPJ 4 years from now? I think not. Robert Smith made a big deal of wanting to be a doctor back in the day, and I'm pretty sure the OSU med school did not guarantee him a spot. So, I fail to see how the quality of UM's med school should affect DPJ's college choice. Going to the same undergrad doesn't make it more likely to get into the grad school, and that's true for any of them (law, business, medicine) as grad schools want a diversified class. Anecdotal to be sure, but I was told that by an admissions dean at UVA law school once.

'87 Browns to my 13 year old self is still the hardest sports loss. Kosar said years later Marty's conservatism and always playing scared and not to lose cost the Browns. The '86 Giants had some players admit the Browns were the best team in the NFL that year.
As a Browns fan, this is like the rivalry with the Steelers. Browns owned them in the ancient era and for the longest time had the all-time series lead. Alas, with two games per year they quickly grabbed that lead.
Nice to see elite QB's interested in OSU. That's the one position until Troy came along that OSU recruited average players. Kind of amazing that the most important position was not a priority even under Cooper.
And they have a bonehead for a coach who could get fired any moment.
I liked Nassib; think he has some nice upside. The rest of the picks, not so much. Has trying to be to cute written all over it. The times the Browns draft players from "academic" schools, they are major busts. From "Mad Dog" Junkin to Owen Maricec. They wasted a pick on this Princeton kid. Really pisses me off that they never draft Buckeyes. The Steelers do. Nuff said.
I really can't stand MSU or him, but my gut says he will be successful in the pro's. For some reason, unheralded MSU qb's seem to do well.
Staying in school is overrated, especially when big money is on the line. By big I mean a 6 figure salary. Try earning 6 figures out of OSU with a degree at age 22. People are acting like Jalin can never get a degree. Say he only lasts 3 years in the NFL, he can use his NFL earnings to come back to OSU and finish the degree. In state tuition isn't much.
I guarantee you that Jaylon Smith is regretting he came back to ND. All it took was 1 play to injure him. Jalin didn't like school, and he isn't going to risk getting injured. I'd say it was a smart move on Jalin's part to skip his senior year.
He can always come back to OSU and pay his own way for the final year after his pro career is over.
This undersized WR just has a bust vibe. GM's , and especially CLE GM's, out think themselves and trade down for extra picks. They think everyone will think they are so smart. II feel they should have stayed at 2 and taken Zeke. He is a special back and they would have been set at RB for the next 10 years. You need a "Big 3" of QB, RB, and WR to win.
Alabama is ranked #1 or #2 at worst every year. Doesn't matter who they lose, or who their QB will be. Fair or not?
MSU really is starting to look like a Tressel era OSU team, with slightly less talent. Fortunately for us, OSU is starting to look like a Tressel era UF team.
I trust in Urban. A roster full of Ohio kids would not have beat Alabama. Tressel locked Ohio down and could not beat USC, LSU, and UF.
Sadly as a Browns fan even though its a good trade, I think they will blow it. I would love for them to draft all Buckeyes this draft. These guys know each other and I think they would play hard together as Browns. Bosa at 8 Thomas or Miller at 31.
He better start working on some modifiers for that Block O tat. Maybe have an elephant jumping through it?
Nice! OSU has a legitimate shot at 4 out of 247's top 10 prospects. On Rivals it's 5 out of 10. I don't ever recall USC or Alabama doing something like that. If everything falls in place, this may go down as one of the all time great cfb recruiting classes.
I've noticed Rivals never puts OSU up as a leader for a recruit even when the recruit says it.
I'm hoping for Duke v. Yale in the second round. Would love to hear one side do one of those obnoxious "you'll all be working for us" chants.
I gotta go with Duke to win it all. They are my "2nd" team after OSU.
Was a he a sword or pistol guy?
I'd rather have Love. He can grab boards on D and on O keep teams honest by hitting the outside J allowing LeBron to roam the paint. Kyrie is a liability since he fails at the #1 job of a point guard, which is assists. I'd rather they get an elite defender for him because you can't stop GS without elite defense.
