Little is a perfect example of a guy knowing his "place" in the hierarchy. If he was, say, the country's 995th-ranked player, that kind of discussion, visits, etc. would not fly.
I got this text today, nothing happened.
Ohio State was the first to offer Nigel Warrior, Donovan Peoples-Jones, and a few others - but generally speaking, offers are extended (especially out of state) when they have a chance to visit and evaluate film, which isn't always at the same pace as others.
Some things just don't need to be said to be understood.
Maybe not that specific iteration, but definitely something similar.
If the camp is on the college campus, then no. Ohio State coaches can not be there.
I hope it produces discussion, but certainly this list isn't "the 11 most important players since 2012" but "signees" and by that I mean the impact their recruitment had.
I was back and forth on whether or not to put Spence or Washington at No. 11 but went with Spence because Adolphus was leaning towards OSU regardless; and Spence was more of a national recruit.
Ohio State is still two scholarships over.
Redshirt would have been likely because he had reinjured his knee in December and it would have slowed him down. The Buckeyes were very frustrated when they finally got a chance to see his knee in person. They told him he wouldn't be cleared within day of arriving on campus, he's a good kid, didn't get in trouble, etc.
Who says a second opinion didn't get sought? Dean got a second opinion, the second opinion doesn't change the opinion of the Buckeyes' medical staff.
He was not "just booted" and not even close. He arrived on campus, the OSU doctors didn't like what they saw, and wouldn't clear him. That's why the Buckeyes recruited Damon Arnette.
Buckeyes would like, if they could have it, 9-10 players from Ohio every year at a minimum.
Don't be surprised if Baker gets a shot to play this year at linebacker, special teams or even safety.
It was an honor to be nominated. I've got some work to do to be ready for next year's voting.
Charlie Strong, Kevin Sumlin, Tom Herman, Chad Morris, Art Briles, and Gary Patterson aren't going to let people just walk their state's top stars out to other schools without a fight.
