SLK has offers from Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Florida State and others.

Nick Conner doesn't yet have an offer from Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan, Ohio State or any of the others listed. Why do you think that is?

This is what I posted last week about Wimbush, and I think it's pretty close to what Alex is thinking. Basically, Ohio State is where Wimbush wanted to go early in the process, and with all the reasons and people pushing him to Penn State, he's still not committed when everyone is jumping on board? Why? 

Heart/Head.

Brandon Wimbush, if you recall, was very close to committing to Ohio State back in December. He decided, when rumors of James Franklin taking over Penn State began to swirl, to delay things a bit. Since then, the scuttlebutt has been almost exclusively Nittany Lion-based for Wimbush, but he's not committed anywhere yet. Why not? 

Here's why: Wimbush won't commit until he's made it back to Ohio State, at least that's what he told me on Sunday. I found that interesting on a number of levels, but at the end of the day here's what I've always felt about Wimbush: Ohio State is is the place he wanted to be the most, and since then it's been nothing but "Penn State this, Penn State that." Like a number of key players, the decision is head versus heart, and I think Wimbush's "heart" has been with the Buckeyes since his visit last fall. 

Most recruits go with their heart, but there's a ton of pressure trying to keep Wimbush and the New Jersey pipeline headed to Happy Valley. Wimbush is, and has been, a priority for Ohio State and he is absolutely not a "fall back" option to Torrance Gibson.

Well a friend of mine named Blue Manchoo designed that original picture
And he told me it was the perfect recruiting propaganda piece
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the
Perfect recruiting propaganda piece because he hadn't said
Anything at all about threats, fake injuries, assaults, or coverups.

Well he sat down and did another version of this perfect recruiting propaganda piece
And he sent it to me and
After reading it I realized that my friend had created the
Perfect recruiting propaganda piece
And I felt obliged to include it on this photoshop Phriday

I think it's best to stop trying to chase every kid's every move, the recruiting process is so stressful and so full of emotional swings that we'd be chasing down fluctuations non-stop if we called a kid every time there were rumors. I know that sounds weird, but a good percentage of the time I'd rather be the guy messaging the kid the least.

I do know, but I can't quite spill the beans. Maybe another day..
