What a truly amazing story. From the great high school grades to the impressive major, commitment to get bigger and stronger to being an early commit, even fulfilling his commitment years later, what a first class recruitment. This young man is an instant favorite.
I could see it happening one day. But I would say that day is at least 10 years from now.
Fine with me. He goes off to a school we'll likely never see.
I wouldn't advise using the 20 win argument, considering the Buckeye's schedule.
What you described is the reason it's a great place to visit. The Cuban culture is amazing. Great food and great times. I LOVED that aspect. BUT...what I described is why I wouldn't want to live there.
Can't imagine school being fun unless they can get the bagmen back. Waaaay too expensive for a student.
Seriously? Have you ever been to Miami? Unless you're one of the few that can lock themselves in a gated community, no thank you. Worked there for a number of years and it might very well be the worst city in America.
The list of ills is unending to include overpopulation, racial tension, high crime, high cost of living, terrible schools, terrible drinking water, terrible traffic (makes DC a drive in the park!), and on and on...
I hope you are kidding. Watch his video. He has tremendous potential. 6'8" quarterbacks that run a 4.6 don't grow on trees. Harbaugh knows he needs to strike gold to beat us so he's looking to hit a homerun. It's feast or famine, recruits that are raw with a really high ceiling. That's actually the same approach I would take. It will take him too many years to catch up through a conventional approach. Meyer has too big of a lead.
Just watched the kid's highlights. While the competition should always be considered, he moves pretty well for someone 6'8". He reportedly runs a 4.68. Looks like it on the video too. This one makes me nervous because he has TREMENDOUS upside. I think the only thing that has the potential to beat the Buckeyes for the foreseeable future is the QB position. It will take a QB going insane to beat us. This kid instantly becomes the best QB on their roster when he steps foot on campus, IMO.
This is not a panic post. Just informative. Don't think there is much worry over Miami since they already have a QB. It's in his backyard so I imagine he's just taking advantage of a night out in the neighborhood. Again, just trying to share news as I appreciate hearing the latest as well (i.e. Michigan flips QB from Texas, etc).
The more news the better. I'd like to know about things like this when they happen because this will have an effect on the Buckeyes. Better to put it out there and let us decide if we want to read. Same reason I posted the one about Gibson visiting Miami. Not that I'm worried about Miami just wanted people to be aware. Not trying to be a dick, but no one forces you to click on it.
You do realize he's from Florida, right?
Agreed. There is a great chance all 3 are gone after this year. Actually sets up perfect for him. Redshirt this year and go into the following year ready to compete for the open QB job. He might be the least polished of all the guys that will be competing, but he is easily the most explosive of the bunch. We all know how much Urban likes explosive.
Comedy is all about timing. Well done sir...well done.
Exactly Danavh4. A group of fans seem to have amnesia. It's mind boggling!
Hopefully he will be back and it will be at QB. There is no reason that the best player in college football (IMO if healthy he will be the best) should not have the ball in his hands every play. You hear the exaggerations of a player that can take it to the house from anywhere on the field, well Braxton is legitimately one of those players. They are very rare. I want the ball in his hands attempting to get it into the hands of his playmakers, Marshall, Wilson, EZE, Samuel, Thomas, et al.
Why is everyone so presumptuous that Braxton wouldn't have put up as good if not better numbers? Look at the weapons both JT and Cardale had. Marshall and Thomas were amazing. Elliott had a breakout year. The line gave them an incredible amount of time by the end of the season.
I predict Braxton will start and blow the doors off this mutha.
No offense to JT I love the guy. But Braxton is on a whole nother planet. The fact that there was no drop off from JT to Cardale is very telling. This is now truly a team. It is not so much a testament to JT and Cardale as the whole team and coaches around them.
What was the question again?
I'm guessing Big Daddy was before your time?
While I would like the Buckeyes to get Weber for no other reason than the fact that Urban wants him, I don't understand the worry. We have studs next year in the guys already in the backfield and studs coming in 2016. We are SET.
I'm wondering, will Matta's results on the floor ever match his results in recruiting?
Let's just get it outta the way. The refs suck. Northwestern gets an old Stockton/Malone type of home court advantage. Drives me nuts!!!
Here's a novel idea. How about you flag anything that smells like a broker and find a little time on the weekend to sign the ones with a postage paid envelope. You could develop a huge following so if/when you make it to the NFL, you have lead the league in jersey's sold, popularity, pro bowls, etc.
I know it's crazy, but there's actually players that do that, even if they are not professionals.
Nope. I'm just tired of every time I read something, someone is "outraged". I get it that she is bothered but let's not act like everyone who does it is a douchebag. There may be ill children that have neither the time nor the money to make it a NC game. People on here have gotten so Michiganesque.
Really? I'm a "jagoff" because I think 19 IS grown? Well I would say you're a pussy if you were a child at that age.
