Great that he committed, but why commit when you are still thinking about visiting another school next week?
While it wouldn't be ideal to lose another in-state OL to Notre Dame, I think we could replace him with someone better.
There are many other linemen I like better on our board right now.
If he goes to Tennessee then he was looking for a reason not to come to OSU, IMO.
Going to Rutgers, he could use the hometown argument. Tennessee, not so much. He was all ready to commit until Gibson signed and scared Guarantano away.
When talking about McCall, I don't think George Hill really matters. From everything I've read and seen he's being recruited like Parris Campbell, a pure WR.
The QB thing is so interesting. What if Tristen Wallace wants to commit this weekend? Hearing him talk about us, it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility. He also has to know that we're involved with Guarantano. Will be interesting to watch.
Williamson should be the next 2017 commit baring any surprise commit from out of state or a new instate offer. Another guy who could pull the trigger for 2017 any day is Todd Sibley.
And Luke Farrell, Joshua Hammond, Terrell Hall, Gavin Cupp, Keandre Jones, Kendarrian Nixon (2017) and Jaylen Kelly-Powell (2017)
Loaded weekend. King is the most interesting as he'll visit March 30 (Monday) so he'll have a lot of individual attention.
Gary is also vising TTUN this weekend too.
This could shape up to be a huge Meyer/Harbaugh battle with Saban getting in it as well.
Would surprise me if its not Florida State. He was there the entire weekend and a lot of people started predicting him to FSU shortly after.
However, with a guy like this, he's bound to still take visits and I think we might get one.
From everything I've read, he's Florida's to lose and USC probably has the best chance to steal him from them.
He just doesn't like being called a Florida lock.
Not saying we are out of it by any means as he looks to have legit interest but (regardless of what he says) I don't really think we lead.
Read that Marlon Davidson (#2 overall player on Rivals) won the DL MVP over Cooper, and Cooper also didn't get invited to Rivals 5-star camp in Baltimore in June.
Guess your ranking before the camp means more than your performance during the camp.
FWIW, another site is reporting that Ferns has never met Sandwisch and there is nothing to their relationship being any factor in his recruitment.
Also wondering if there is any more to the Judson crystal ball. Last week you implied that there were specific factors that led you to change your crystal ball while this article makes it seem like it's just because he's a recruit from Florida that we now have to hold onto. Is it fair to say if he never committed you would still have him predicted to OSU?
Just saying I've read multiple times him say directly that he's not a pure running back and wants to line up all over the field. Which makes sense given the fact that he's most likely not going to be able to be a between the tackles, every down back at OSU.
Not sure where the mis-communication lies.
This is absolutely false. I have read many interviews with McCall and each time he states that he wants to be recruited as an athlete. He is so comfortable in his skill set that he thinks he is elite at the RB, WR and hybrid positions and wants schools to recruit him that way.
I don't think they're similar at all, besides the fact that they're both from Florida.
Davis committed out of no where. Judson had talked about committing for months before he actually did.
Birm, any info on your crystal ball flip of Bruce Judson or is this just a hunch, knowing he's a Florida kid and it'll be tough to keep his commitment?
If we really push hard, I think we get him.
Supposed to be deciding soon if I'm not mistaken.
This was just after a visit to Pitt this past weekend as well.
He's been interested in us for awhile. Will be an extremely tough pull from Virginia though.
Still probably a matter of when not if, IMO.
I think Drayton leaving had a bit of an affect since he was his primary recruiter but things should pick up again shortly and I could still see him committing relatievly soon.
So Gaurantano is still dropping us?
FWIW, rumblings out there Hill will sign with Arkansas tomorrow. Take it with a grain of salt as drama tends to heat up on signing day and information gets thrown around willy nilly.
If Weber is a Buckeye, he'll be the last Cass Tech player to play for OSU, IMO.
If he's not, Damon Webb is.
Prospects at this point for the 2016 class that you'd be surprised if they signed with someone other than OSU?
If, and that is a huge IF because who knows if anything is really happening with Alabi, but if he doesn't sign with OSU it will be because we needed room.
Is he left or right handed? Right handed it's OSU, left handed it's USC. Doesn't have to reach across his body
