Camps are over and kids will start getting ready for fall football. Unless a kid has said he wants to commit before the season, you can expect a lull.
This list is bullet-proof.
Thank you. Tyson's "dominance" was as much a media creation as anything. He was beaten soundly several times and other than his childhood, he could never overcome any adversities in the ring or out of it, D'Amato's death included.
I really think in situations where a student-athlete feels compelled to leave a school due to its (not the student's) academic failings, they should be able to play immediately.
Does the fact that both Corley and Victor have us and Tennessee in their final three's mean that both will not commit to the Vols? I want to think that.
I'm not seeing Thomas have a big game as I imagine he'll see a lot of double-teams. Playcalling will be huge in the first half; I think we'll physically take over after that.
Good point. As well as the fact that he's a high school kid who's not used to constructing statements that always reflect well on the subject or himself. For what it's worth, I doubt the coaches at the schools he is now favoring are head over heels in love with his comments as they relate to competition.
Ohio kid who was, at one point, the #1 ILB in the country. Grew up a die-hard Buckeye fan.
I think it is probably a situation where fans expected him to commit to WVU or PSU due to academic interests and, since it hasn't happened, are wondering if there was a way back to Columbus.
As you can see above, Birm has shut down that line of thinking.
He just visited Texas, so that's not out of the picture, either. Texas's class has been pretty quiet so far.
Mentioned in another thread, but is the Brendan Ferns to OSU hope truly dead? I know PSU took two LBs last week, which would make it doubtful they're still in. WVU?
Penn State was in the running for Ferns, but took two LBs this week. That, coupled with Hansford seemingly cooling on us, may have people thinking Ferns to good guys.
I think Pryts probably grasps the "limited space" concept best at this point and, barring the trip to ND that may or may not happen, is the most ready to commit.
I'm almost as intrigued by the '17 class. That space seems even more limited in a weird way.
Hamlin is my #2. That would make for a great DB weekend.
Paris Ford, safety from class of '17. He and Hamlin are tight and, stop me if you've heard this one before, want to play at same school. One thing to consider, though, is that unlike many of these deals, Ford is good as hell.
Reggie Bush's family can tell you how it happened.
I was on the treadmill a the gym watching a Buckeye-MSU basketball game that went into overtime. I just kept running. Ended up going about seven miles that day.
Saves you a bundle. Is tedious as shit, but saves you the $$$.
This is a great question.
She surveyed the options around her and her thumb was the best choice.
Sophomoric, I know, but....
I stupidly DV'd you, so made it up with an upvote. I see your point, but I think when Bosa commits, you'll have three very content studs.
On a side note, I'm interested to see how Tosh Lupoi does with Bama. He's a crazy good recruiter and brings serious West Coast connections to the SEC, but has baggage as well from recruiting violation allegations.
It also may be the first team GPA ever recorded for Ole Miss.
I would be surprised if it weren't commitable, actually, given the lack of confidence in Corley and seeming lack of trust in Mitchell as a polished WR (as opposed to an athlete).
Good reminder, as well, of how much time these men put in for Buckeye functions. And they always look happy as hell.
Don't rule that out.
Respect your post and would have agreed with you until the Corley ship seemingly sailed. With Mack committed and Corley MSU-bound, that leaves only Craig-Myers and Victor ahead of Mitchell on our board and we'd take either, regardless.
I'm hoping (as are you) that the Mitchell slow-play has seemingly worked itself out in our favor.
