It looks like they've only updated the new five stars.

Will probably do the other movers tomorrow. I'd expect Austin Mack to get a significant bumb.

Comment 01 Jul 2015

IMO Eichenberg isn't a tier 1 OL. Kraemer should be though.

Comment 28 Jun 2015

That very well could be the case. His mom is very pro Michigan.

If I recall correctly, on the last visit she said all we did was talk about football, when every single other recruit says we talk about everything but football.

It wouldn't surprise me if she's pushing him to Michigan or at least away from OSU.

Comment 28 Jun 2015

Doubt he felt that way about his visit.

For one, our staff feels like it went as well as it could've.

Secondly, this is his third or so visit here. He wouldn't keep visiting if he wasn't enjoying it.

I also have seen a tendency for Michigan recruiting journalists to over-exaggerate prospects reactions to Michigan (Da'Shawn Hand and Kareem Khalid for example).

This recruitment will go until signing day, which means how the teams do on the field will also be important. I still think we have a shot here.

Also, to correct some folks, Urban Meyer, Luke Fickell and Larry Johnson were all here on Thursday for Gary's visit. In fact, Gary spent pretty much all day tied to the hip of Johnson. The coaching staff as a whole was allowed to start their vacation a few days ago but there's no way the coaches that matter in Gary's recruitment were going to miss the #1 player in the country being on campus.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

That has been misinterpreted (even on the 247 board where it originated).

What Bill said was that his source believes there are 3 spots open after counting the 16 commitments and the guys that OSU expects to land at this point. These are the guys they are pretty much already counting as commitments. Those players that he mentioned were Nick Bosa, Jordan Fuller, Damar Hamlin and Luke Farrell. So 16 current commitments + 4 expected commitments + 3 other spots = 23 person class.

I would bet out of the three open spots they want one of Corely/Craig-Myers/Victor, one of Jackson/Gary/Lawrence/another DT and one extra player, either from the guys already listed or others like Pryts, Jaylon Jones, Aaron Hansford, etc.

Comment 19 Jun 2015

Hill apparently let the coaches know that he wasn't coming...still it's turning into a trend. Hill is going to have to start showing the staff that he wants to be a Buckeye, IMO. His spot in this class isn't guaranteed.

2017 DB recruiting is insane. We look to have made a move with Okudah, are in the top two for LeCounte and lead by a sizeable amount for Isaiah Pryor (reported by Steve Wiltfong today). That is three five star safeties.

Comment 03 Jun 2015

From all reports Davis, Richardson and Harris would all be Buckeyes eventually if offered, and I could see us offering all of them, especially if our WR class in 2016 consists of Austin Mack, Hawkins (as an athlete) and then maybe one of Corely, NCM and Victor. That would give us the room in 2017 for Grimes, Greene, the three Ohio WRs and the be able to chase Donovan Peoples-Jones and Jeff Thomas until signing day.

Comment 30 May 2015

He is also visiting Alabama this weekend.

Looks like he's doing a southern tour. He'll see Tennessee in June as well.

We'll have to recruit him until the end but I'd still be fairly surprised if he flips.

Comment 25 May 2015

LOL

Anyone who thinks we booted a kid who was our first commit, a 4 star DB, possibly the best DB in the class when we are thin at DB without getting into trouble or being detrimental to the team is full of it.

There are probably plenty of other players they could have released instead.

Furthermore, let's not act like Auburn always puts their athlete's best interest first. There's plenty of examples of them using players without caring what happens to them.

Comment 23 May 2015

Really? People fringing or freaking out from him using the word "brand"?

All it means is how he will be utilized and how he'll be developed both on the field and off the field.

People talk about brand all the time: it's your skills, your strengths, your weaknesses, your personality, etc.

Comment 08 May 2015

Interesting.

Not quite sure he's a take yet though.

Mack is all but in, and then we probably only have one spot for a WR, two if someone like Craig-Myers wants in on signing day. We're right there in it for Corley and Victor and I think those are our top two targets after Mack.

We can be very selective here.

We'll see.

Comment 04 May 2015

He is definitely close to committing.

His top four is Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State with most believing we're behind the other three.

However, anything is possible and I know he likes OSU a lot. He is visiting Michigan again at the end of May and wants to visit us again before deciding.

Would be a huge pickup if we could get him.

Comment 25 Apr 2015

I'm not sure we actually passed on him. If he tried to commit to us we may or may not have accepted his commitment.

However, we haven't really recruited him or contacted him all that much since his January visit and it looked like it was only a matter of time before he committed.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

Honestly, anyone crystal balling Gary anywhere at this point is just throwing poop at the wall and hoping it sticks.
