I am going with Smith and Fuller at the two safety spots (Sorry Damon) and Sheffield and Okudah at the two corners. Ward and Webb at nickle.
Come November, this secondary will be bruttle to pass against, especially with the pressure our defensive line is going to put on opposing quarterbacks
Phi - I very much respect your feelings and I would love to see Webb drastically improve in year 4, but teams picked him and Ward apart all year.
It would not surprise me to see both Wade and Okudah start at corner by end of fall camp. I like Ward, but these two are on a different level. I could aee Ward sliding into the nickel. I am also hoping someone out performs Webb at safety. I minds eye Webb just never lived up to his top 50 tanking coming out of high school. Would love to see a healthy Smith compete.
I assume Barrett has locked down tge starting job over Burrow and Haskins, but I know this Martell kid is a flat out baller. I truly believe he gives Barrett a run for his money and either Burrow or Haskins, or both, looks elsewhere after the 1017 season. Yes, I think Tate fits Urbans offense to a T.
I really want to see another DT in the class, but I think your 3 picks to OSU come to fruition.
I think Ellison could be a sleep superstar in the waiting.
I'd be thrilled if Wilson committed. I think we have a better shot at Wilson than we do for Tufele.
Wilson - 40%
Tufele - 33%
Our two deep on the oline is solid, plus having 2 5* coming in only adds to the depth. Give me a DT and Ellis and I am good. I think Ellis could be the between the tackles RB OSU needs come November games.
This one's a laugher. Who would pick Nebraska a Mike Riley over The Ohio State and Urban Meyer?
I guess there's one guy out there that thinks it's a wise choice. Gooooood luck with that one.
Something about Ellis makes me want him in the class. I think he could be a bruiser in November games and he's SO hungry for an OSU offer.
Did Hill declare for the NFL draft?
305buck never disappoints.
I am one who believes Mr. Wilson joins the two in Columbus. What defensive tackle would want Okudah and Browning playing behind them.
I am right there with.
Jeffrey Okudah is my favorite player.
I am crying like a baby. What a great, heart felt letter. Wow, just wow. What an incredible young man.
Welcome to The Buckeye Family Jeffrey!
Lets hope his nephew is a stud in 10 years because he's all Buckeye.
It would not surprise me a bit if Tate cracks the starting lineup early at tOSU.
He did not looked thrilled to be a Trojan. I wonder if the Buckeyes just didn't have room. Something tells me he wanted to be a Buckeye.
I lived in Southern Cal for 35 years and USC's campus is a shit whole, however, Westwood in gorgeous. Lord I hope we land Darnay.
I agree beatttun.
Hmmmm.....come to OSU and if you're not elite enough to play you can transfer to Cincinnati after year 3. Interesting thought. Upvote for you sir!
Wow....If the magic number is 22, I can't see 16 players that will not be given a spot on the team next year. I can only come up with maybe 8.
A major shake up is coming, you can count on it. This will be Everett Withers 2.0, except on the offensive side of the ball. Not sure who the next young hot shot OC will be, but Beck and or Wariner will not be in charge of the offense next year.
I have a feeling Bama is going to wear them down by the end of 3. Boy I hope I am wrong.
To early to really tell, but there are FAR more Buckeyes than tiggers.
This years playoff game feels like the 2006 National Championship game, however, Urban's our coach this time. I think the Buckeyes will play inspired football and dominate this game.
OSU - 38
Clemson - 24
Wait until Okudah is comitted and in Wilson's ear along with Browning. I think Wilson picks OSU.
I agree with everything you said, however, so long as Urban is our HC 2-3 loss season should not be expected. I expected us to win every game this year and I expect the same moving forward. Urban recruits far to well for us fans to expect a 2-3 loss season.
