I usually don't get too excited over a highlight film, but this guy would be a HUGE get. I'm betting Urban becomes his primary recruiter.
I did a virtual tour a year ago for their facilities. If I had the opportunity to do an official visit there as a young stud football player, I would do it in a heartbeat.

Agree with you here. If he's being projected like a mid first round pick, I would have fully supported his decision to enter the NFL draft. However, I am sure everyone on this board would be absolutely ecstatic if he decided to come back for his senior season.
One thing I do like about these games, is that it provides an opportunity for our backups, freshman, and walkons with the chance to play.
Are you serious? He graded as a champion and won defensive player of the game. I will have to side with the coaches here who believe he is a better player than Ron Tanner. I got frustrated he missed a couple tackles last season, but in my opinion, that is going overboard.
Congrats to Joe! Keep working hard!
I am not sure how this is all on Luke Fickell to be honest considering how few scholarship linebackers we have and how young they are. I'm beginning to think that Curtis Grant may not possess the "it" factor like we all thought he did. I'd love to see him be a big player, but just not sure it will happen. Josh Perry appears to be developing and could be a solid player, we shall find out rather soon.
Finally, we can't expect Mike Mitchell and Trey Johnson to be fighting for a starting spot after 3 days of practice at linebacker. I have to believe that at least one of those two will further develop and become a solid role player later on this season, but let's not get discouraged yet.
August 31st can not come soon enough though. Hopefully we can beat up on Buffalo early so we can get a better look at our depth.
Tyvis is one impressive man! Even after his redshirt season, I had a feeling he would become a quality player for us. I was remarkably impressed to hear the fine words of praise during spring camp and seeing he had been named the starting Nickelback. This post wasn't about himself as well. Includes his teammates in the post, specifically mentions Armani, and thanks the fans for the support- Wow!
Tyvis- I wish the best of luck to you man. You haven't let Buckeye Nation down by any imagination. Keep working hard in football, academics, and life man. I sincerely hope to see you donning the scarlet and gray as the starting Nickel this year.
