Paper meaning rankings coming out of high school.
Now it's at 667 aka number of the neighbor of the beast.
On paper Sweat is better. On the other hand, it's hard to believe that Sweat would be able to top 7.5 sacks as a true freshman.
I was actually asking when was the last time he was at Notre Dame, I hadn't ever heard of him making a visit there. I figured I must have just missed it.
Haha beat me to it.
When was the last time he was at Notre Dame?
While I agree that 2014 could have been handled better, I.e. Kyle Allen, I'm definitely glad we have Stephen Collier. Kid seems to be working his ass off and who knows, Troy Smith wasn't a particularly highly ranked or lauded recruit, and he was as good as anyone ever was for Ohio State.
I just graduated OSU but I was a brother of SAE while I was there and last semester we recruited somewhere around 7 or 8 kids from St. X to join our chapter, who know both of the Hilliard brothers. While I do think he comes to Ohio State, the fact that he is following a lot of OSU students on twitter may not be a relevant indication of that, because while we may not have been able to pull many football players from the Cincinnati private schools in the past, OSU has always pulled a ton of frat boys from them.
Hey in statistics that won't matter for nearly two years, we have the 3rd ranked class for 2016 right now.
Yea but I mean Cleveland does really suck ass...
I'm gonna head on over to 4chan and see if my more morally grey friends over there have seen this. If they haven't believe me, they will relish in making that woman's life miserable.
Finally, he got his offer and committed, which means no more OMG Coach Meyer knows nothing about recruiting why hasn't he offered Nick Conner?!?!?! threads. Today is a good day.
Well this certainly seems to have turned in our favor rather quickly.
I'm heavily considering buying a Shazier jersey, at the moment I only have the jersey of my favorite all time Steeler, Mean Joe Greene.
Now I know that this doesn't mean he will come to Ohio State or anything, but I am very much excited at the good news we have been getting almost daily in the last couple weeks when it comes to Elite15.
As a Steelers fan, I let out more than a few joyful expletives at the draft party I was at when the pick came in for Shazier. I thought the Steelers had a dynamite draft and I can't wait to see Shazier take Manziel's lunch money for the foreseeable future.
I could be wrong on this, but this kid seems like our version of Travis Waller to Oregon. I think if and when we do offer him, he will be a Buckeye in a heartbeat.
He had that many solo tackles because Keuchly didn't have nearly the level of talent surrounding him at Boston College that Ryan Shazier has had over his career. That is always going to draw stats away from a player, no matter how good he is. In fact, that year he won all the awards, his team went 4-8. So he is a great player, but its not hard to pile up those stats when you're a great linebacker on a defense where no one else could tackle their way out of a wet paper bag.
I don't think he is jerking us around by any means or anything, but until he actually gets up here for a visit, I just don't think that he realistically is going to be a buckeye. Unless I am mistaken however, we are the only team on that list that he hasn't actually visited yet, which puts us in a not half bad position.
I was very disappointed when it was put out there that Ohio State and Settle were parting ways, I'd most certainly be pumped if this meant we were back in it.
New summer anthem, I'll be bumping this along with the rest of the "Malibu's Most Wanted" playlist.
Hell, I'd go with a 28 year old Michael Stipe.
Disagree on the point that we won't take a QB this year, but I do believe Stephen Collier could be a great QB for us. Like a more athletically talented Guiton if KG was given a chance to actually earn the starting position.
I'll admit this isn't my proudest boner...
