If he's offered and doesn't end up a Buckeye? Yes, that's fair.
Ohio State is highly unlikely to offer Pickard, now or in the future. They likely suggested to him that waiting until the fall might be better for him.
When you have one last chance at a lifetime dream being achieved, and you're the only one in the way of achieving it, the decision to change your circumstances is actually pretty easy.
Yes, after seeing him in Oregon I would offer, and that's a change from after I saw him in Columbus at the end of May. He's worked hard, and you can see the improvement. Some guys get a chip on their shoulder and it makes them bitter, unyielding - with CJ it's motivated him to get better and work harder. That to me is a HUGE sign of good things to come for him.
Conrad is coming to OSU for one reason: to get a Buckeye offer. If he gets it, he's going to be a Buckeye. Maybe not immediately, but eventually. Mark that down.
I think Hubbard will work at TE and a lot of other positions this year.
He actually transferred out of Harrison.
Head vs heart doesn't often work out well for head. Just sayin'.
Someone has been paying attention, haha.
There's a pretty regular group text message happening.
Have I stated I'd eat my shoes in Gibson makes a visit? I'll need to be refreshed.
That grip started being lost the minute he flew to Stanford to camp to earn an offer from the Cardinal. That's beyond the scope of "normal" for a player 100-percent committed to a school.
There's not much to be 'reported' really. Van's mom sent a group text, I assume, to everyone who had reached out in her direction yesterday as they were at the airport, because I received the same text, verbatim, as Bill Kurelic (and I assume others) did.
From talking to people on OSU's side of things, they're very pleased with how it went, and they believe it's looking good for Ohio State. The question is: will he visit Georgia as they've tentatively planned or will Tennessee get another trip before he makes his decision? No more trips === very good for Ohio State.
Added Indiana prospects Austin Mack (WR/2016) and Auston Robertson (DE/2016)
You know, it's really about feel and it's individual for sure. If I am confident about someone, like REALLY confident, I share that info with the guys.
Josh Sweat is number one and deservedly so. He's not, in anyway typical. Also, remember these are projections, not necessarily a matter of where they are now.
Florida did not sign a LB in 2014 and before Baker didn't have one in their 2015 class either. That's attractive to anyone who wants to play early, and that's not being "afraid of competition," that just makes business sense.
Buckeyes likely to lose out on another in-state kid, James Daniels, sometime soon as well.
