Just don't see it at this point barring a change in things for a few other guys.
The system is a really fun "game" but at the end of the day, it's not perfect. Take Carlton Davis last year for example - if you picked Ohio State for him initially you were correct, but when he flipped to Auburn, you're wrong and lose the percentage.
Buckeyes still feel good and that's what I'm basing my thoughts on.
That prediction is not pain for the Buckeyes, but their opponents.
It should be next Monday and I think Tuesday as well.
I can tell you that is something I've never been called and, God willing, never will be. :)
FWIW, I was told today that Rashan Gary has already reserved his hotel room for the spring game, but until he confirms it I don't want to throw it out there as indisputable fact. I know plans can change quickly.
Will NOT visit MSU as I was originally told.
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.
