  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

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.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

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?

Comment 24 Jul 2015

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.

Comment 23 Jul 2015

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.

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.

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.

We take about 25 kids a year for 85 spots, total. It's not always going to work out, for a variety of reasons. Though it's certainly good to know why kids leave, everybody playing private eye sometimes brings out the worst in us as a site. Wish him well and carry on.
