JT did beat out Cardale last year, remember? He then went on to set almost every single Ohio State/Big Ten record at quarterback in 12 games. What puts him so far behind Braxton/Cardale if all three are healthy going into the fall in your mind?
Guarantano says he'll visit Ohio State before a choice, which, according to the247Sports.com analysts who cover Rutgers will be April 15th.
That was in the story.
So, doing some thinking - if Guarantano visits - as he says he will, it will have to be the weekend of the 10th-12th OR potentially a weekday visit, maybe after Easter so the 6th-7th? If it's not one of those two times, I'm not optimistic it happens.
Ohio State doesn't feel he's "slipping away" - but Wiltfong is the best in the business, he's not prone to going out on limbs often. We'll see in a few weeks.
FWIW, I don't believe Gary was at Paramus at the same time Peppers was, but I could be wrong. I think he transferred in last year after Jabrill had already left.
I did say that decision to move my crystal ball was based on a few things, but mostly momentum for WVU lately. He's been there recently, his brother is there, as close to home as OSU is, etc. Buckeyes had a big lead, it's shrinking, but could still be big enough.
Hard to say, but in truth, they have to recruit every guy hard until signing day, don't they?
We may find out the answer to that sooner rather than later.
Really depends on who shows up; but I think Eichenberg and McCall are definite possibilities that weekend.
Correct. Don't expect that decision until end of July/August.
Remember: one side saying "they lead" doesn't always indicate the actual interest of the other side.
This is very good news. The thing that's important is getting these kids on campus, spending the personal time with them and these weekends are huge.
Yes, correct. Thanks for the catch.
By the time we're at the community interview point of a kid's recruitment, I generally have gotten to know them pretty well where we're at least comfortable talking. There's always some kids who are less "eager" to talk with the media, but that's their prerogative of course so if they don't want to do it, there's not much we can say/do to change their minds. The Glenville kids from last year, the Cass Tech kids generally (not Dame Webb, but most others) aren't really the talkative types.
I email or text them the questions generally, but I leave it up to them if they have a preference.
Honestly, from talking to his family there's no like, pressure to play alongside Michael, they're each their own man and doing their own thing, but for those of us with brothers, the appeal is strong.
This is correct. Package deals are often discussed, rarely come to fruition.
