I think Alabama and Penn State are his other two.  He hasn't narrowed the list to three that I've seen.

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Being from Dayton, I always wished Javon Ringer had gotten an offer to play at Ohio State.  I loved watching him play for Chaminade-Julienne. 

Comment 25 Aug 2014

I agree.  But there have been a couple guys in the past two classes that I would've liked to see in Columbus.  Including Trubisky and Zaire.

Also, Nate Davis would've been fun to watch.  I always thought we sort of missed on him.

I assume playing big-time football has always been a dream of yours.  What was your feeling and reaction when you got that first major college offer?  How did you celebrate?

Comment 18 Aug 2014

There are only eleven games scheduled in each of those two years.  We know they play twelve games.  Thus, not set.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Not sure, but I think 305Buck knows the UNC games have been replaced.  I believe there is still an open slot for both years, despite the UNLV and Oregon State scheduling..

Edit: I just double checked and confirmed, as of now there is still a slot open in both 2017 and 2018.
Oklahoma/UNLV in 2017 and TCU/Oregon State in 2018 are the only non-conference teams scheduled for those respective years.

Well, I'm in the Army and a life long Buckeye fan!  I have dual motivators for rooting extremely hard for The Ohio State University in this game.  Plus it'd be awesome to take either my wife or my son to their first ever Ohio State football game!

Note:  My wife and son have lived their entire lives in Kansas.  We plan on going to the 2016 game at Oklahoma and/or the 2017 Nebraska game in Lincoln.  It should be noted that despite a large family with ties to other schools, my son and wife are now die-hard Buckeye fans.  My wife even excitedly watched Justin Hilliard and Jashon Cornell commit to the good guys with me!

Interestingly the CBs from Tennessee writers are mostly trending toward OSU while the Buckeye writers have Tennessee as his landing point.  Seems like nobody is really sure how to gauge his final two list.  Clemson, of course, still has 33% CBs.

I completely understand.  I was away for Basic Training and AIT during the disastrous 2011 season.  Missed every game after the Nebraska debacle.  One of those things they leave out when you raise your right hand..

Comment 05 Aug 2014

My big hope is that one of these guys commit to the Buckeyes early to provide a clear class leader.  After watching the way these five star quarterbacks made an impact on other big time recruits at the Opening (see Christian Kirk), I would love for us to be in a similar situation next year during the camp circuit.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

Thanks for the info, 305Buck. That would be an impressive get.  I've felt for a long time that Ohio State needs to put a top flight QB into the NFL to truly help our quarterback recruiting cause.  Obviously there's no telling how a 2016 recruit will do at the next level yet, but I'd love to see this type of quarterback in Scarlet & Grey.  And it would certainly boost our receiver recruiting as well (although I'm very excited about Johnnie Dixon)!

Then again, we did land Justin Zwick once upon a time..

Comment 04 Aug 2014

Birm, any news on Jordan Whitehead?  I feel like he could be added to this list as a bit more of an under-the-radar sort of recruit.  I know there was some talk about his time at FNL where he and Urban Meyer were engaged in some serious conversation that ended with a UFM fist pump (or something of the sort), but I never heard anything additional about him.  He seems like a real candidate to be one of the next commits.  Any insight you could lend to his recruitment? 

Also interested in Neville Gallimore and Christian Wilkins if you have time.

Birm, I can't help but take note that you've been a bit of a Negative Nancy this week.  I was looking at the thread on Chambers commitment coming tomorrow and you were being quite pessimistic.  Not to mention your feelings on Kirk the other day.  This is totally unlike you, usually you're the one talking us off the edge.  I think you need to eat a Snickers or something.
