As he stated, hasn't really visited other schools. So, while I think in his heart of hearts he knows he's going to be a Buckeye, he has to look around.
Who starts for Bama at QB? it looks like a Coker-Cornwell battle.
You read my mind, BuckeyeCrusader.
I agree. I'm curious, though, to see how this "drop" impacts him as a teen. From what I've heard he's a very hard worker. I feel sorry for the weights he's about to hit even harder.
Keep in mind, too, that once guys are committed, they're less beneficial to recruiting sites as the story lines of "Where will they end up?" and "Are they still looking?" are no longer in play (the headlines that get hits). I'm not so cynical to think that an uneven performance by a player might not impact his rating, but it's pretty consistent that they're no longer hot shit once they're committed.
EDIT: or, basically, what Teddy said above me. Slow-moving this Sunday.
Mike Hull will make an NFL team and do well and some combine freak will wash out within two years.
Always thought "Banned" would actually be a good fake band name, like you were playing under a pseudonym.
Without trying to incite more hostile posts, but rather to elicit some good conversation, it seems clear where our head is at recruiting-wise (cherry-pick the state and cast a wide net for top talent nationally) as well as MSU (strong regional presence that identifies as a very strong #2 option for Midwest talent). How are we defining UM's recruiting approach, though?
Isiah Thomas. Am proud to say I've hated him in every one of his incarnations (player, coach, GM, committed d-bag).
This is the catch of committing early. Your headline, "Buckeyes visit commit Walker" just isn't as sexy as "Craig-Myers re-opens his recruitiment" and people stop paying such close attention. It's one of the reasons, IMO, you'll see kids long-committed to schools take fall trips for a little attention. And, no, I don't think it's diva-esque so much as it's being a teenager.
I'm gritting my teeth as I read this, but am inclined to concede you may be right (this is similar to my conversations with my wife).
My fear is us in late fall, going hard for Justin Layne. Not because he's Justin Layne, but because we missed/passed on the other options. Seems like I've seen this movie before.
Am I wrong, or is Demario McCall not more the slot guy?
Last week, Clay named the Buckeyes as his leader
And yet Birm is guessing he ends up down South. If you choose to love recruiting, it's this craziness you learn to live with.
Total speculation, I know, but I think the play we're going to see from Bell will be All-American play. I think he makes our D dominant this year.
In all fairness to Penn State, it just wasn't going to work out when they hired Franklin. LJ had been interim coach when O'Brien left and it was either his job to have or he was going to leave. Our own situation with Fickell was just different. Their loss.
"He shows that he loves you, he’ll do everything for you," Ohio State defensive tackle Adolphus Washington said last season. "How can you not just go out there and play hard for a guy like that?"
LJ has been with us a little over a year. Some coaches are still getting buy-in. Some get quotes like this.
This ^. Stars are both subjective and subject to change. We care far more about them than the coaches, I suspect.
Thank you. First thing that came to my mind.
We have more points than Minnesota and Michigan State.
To be fair, Mgoblog's Ace Anbender wrote a pretty scathing piece on the supposed "due dilligence" that the Seahawks did and how, in the end, it's really bad for everybody involved. It was a pretty ballsy piece, IMO, one that Anbender took a ton of shit for, and one that many, many homer websites would have steered clear of.
No, I think the coaches do as well. If Mitchell is itching to commit, though, and Corley resigned to take his time, it would be tough to turn Mitchell away unless Corley was some sort of silent verbal (which it sounds like he is most definitely not).
If anyone has been following Rivals' analysis of the draft and the star system, you'll find plenty to be optimistic about Berry. First off, as we know, there are a ton of 3* guys who went high in the draft. Secondly, there were more than a few concessions in the analysis part of the article regarding players who couldn't be classified at a certain position, much like Berry.
I know I'm in the minority, but I love Noah. When he's healthy, he's a double-double machine and, most importantly, doesn't need the ball to impact the game. Right now, he's a shell of himself. He just looks out of sorts and, truthfully, his game has stalled since Rose came back as Rose is not really a floor general, ala John Wall.
Noah's personality is an acquired taste, for sure. I'd probably hate him if I were not a Bulls fan.
He is watching the numbers, Woodshed. I agree with your earlier post; if he wants in, he's in.
