Didn't MSU have a WR play both ways just last year? I forget his name, but he was their top WR and I wanna say they had him play some DB because they were thin at the position. It wouldn't be out of the question given precedent.

EDIT: Looked it up and Tony Lippett played some DB in 2014 while also having 1200 receiving yards and 11 TDs.

Much more enlightening. I thought it was kinda weird that the recruit's response was to threaten to decommit. Who knows what really happened, but it in my opinion it sounds like a teenager trying to make a scene both at the time of the event and then later by decommitting and spreading the story on the internet.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if Simmons was ready to commit to OSU based on how his recruitment sounded like it was playing out, but with our two commits who just signed we didn't have any scholarships for him. Maybe that caused Matta to tell him to wait until the next signing period in case we have someone transfer out or leave for the NBA early. That might be why Simmons pushed his timeline back.

This is a very pro-OSU mindset, but who knows with recruiting lol.

Not sure if it warrants going for two, but this seems to be the justification.

My biggest hope for this year is that the new big guys will at least be competent. Yes we lost probably the best player in college basketball, but I hope/think that the combo of Thompson and Giddens, and maybe a little of Bell, will be a large upgrade from Amir and Trey. Having a post defense and some scoring would be a huge boost.

It sounded like it mattered to us when it was Terrell Hall. Sure Hall ended up decommitting instead of having his scholly pulled, but I'm pretty confident that Cupp would have eventually flipped to us even if Dantonio didn't pull his scholly.

Devin Smith was a second round NFL draft pick almost solely because of his ability to be a "deep ball threat." Not often would you see him making intermediate catches, but he was almost always the guy making the 30+ yard catches. Being able to catch deep balls definitely is a talent.

2017's defensive backfield situation doesn't seem any more clear than 2016's. With Shaun Wade and Marcus Williamson already committed, Isaiah Pryor potentially committing soon, Richard LeCounte's multiple visits since last year, and Lamont Wade being high on us I'm wondering how many we could take. Obviously these are all guys you have a very hard time saying no to.

Gerdeman has some seriously dry humor, and I'm pretty sure he was joking when he posted this. I remember seeing it on my twitter feed and chuckling.

Comment 15 May 2015

I really don't think we can win it all this year, not without Love. I feel like the Cavs can beat whoever makes it out of the Wizards-Hawks series, but I really don't like their chances against any of the Western Conference teams.

Along with the scholarship issue, I think this may have been a scheme thing and Ward may not have fit into what Matta and the staff tries to run. It seems to me that Matta likes to have one solid post defender with 2 wing players along with the standard 2 guards. I can't remember the last time OSU had two post players on the floor and the power forward position seems to be a lost concept, with the stretch 4 being favored. This is all coming from someone who really doesn't know a lot about the inner workings of basketball, but a 6'9" post player may never have truly been in the cards for OSU.
