Now it's at 667 aka number of the neighbor of the beast. 

Comment 29 Jun 2014

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. 

Comment 23 Jun 2014

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. 

Comment 23 Jun 2014

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.

Comment 17 Jun 2014

Well this certainly seems to have turned in our favor rather quickly.

Comment 16 Jun 2014

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.

Comment 03 Jun 2014

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.

Comment 30 May 2014

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.

Comment 29 May 2014

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.

Comment 26 May 2014

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.

Comment 21 May 2014

Hell, I'd go with a 28 year old Michael Stipe.

Comment 21 May 2014

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.
