Alright, who are you? I played baseball at Fairmont. My neighbor growing up (and good friend) is Chris Trochelman. I haven't seen anyone else on here from Kettering before!
I wasn't sure I could bring myself to imagining someone else landing in his spot at DE. I feel like their would just have to be a locker left open for him.
In seriousness though, Prince Sammons or Josh King maybe? In my scenario they would just make Caleb Kelly commit as an alternative 5*.
My wish list would be as follows:
WR: Nate Craig-Myers
WR: Austin Mack
OT: Greg Little
DT: Rashan Gary
DE: Nick Bosa
DB: Jordan Fuller
DB: Jared Mayden
DB: Damar Hamlin
Of course, if you said they were going to sign my entire backup list I'd be elated as well.. (minus the fact that Bosa would be missing)
WR: Binjimen Victor
WR: Donnie Corley
OT: Ben Bredeson
DT: Antwuan Jackson
LB: Caleb Kelly
DB: Nigel Warrior
DB: Craig Watts
DB: Wayne Davis
I'm also curious about the absence of Fuller and Mitchell from this episode of Predicting the End of the Class. Any insight as to why there was no mention of either, Birm?
No kidding, especially considering this kid was committed there for a year already.
And while I agree that he's almost certainly going to UGA, I feel a little bit like this is similar to Nate Craig-Myers decommitment where everybody immediately said he's almost certainly a FSU lock. While that may end up true, I think the longer he (both of them, for that matter) stays uncommitted and explores his options the more legitimate Columbus looks as a destination. I'm certainly not going to count UFM out in any recruiting battle when he really wants someone.
Urban Meyer has had a great deal of success in the college game utilizing and getting the most out of dual-threat quarterbacks. When he and Coach Beck explain how they plan to utilize your talents, what excited you most? What makes their system better than others?
How much of an impact did Dontre Wilson playing for and finding success with the Buckeyes have on your decision that Ohio State was right for you?
Living in Wichita, KS I watch them using any means necessary - online streaming, sports bars, Xbox ESPN app, and occasionally on my 55" when they're on ABC or FOX (no cable).
And I used to be a mailman, too. I had to listen to The Game a couple years ago on my phone while delivering mail out of the LLV. I went crazy and literally threw mail up into the air when Tyvis Powell intercepted the 2-pt conversion attempt.
I was more responding to the OP who said he hadn't heard of him and a couple other comments saying things were interesting that Birm previously touched on. I could definitely tell this isn't the first time you've been introduced to Watts as a prospect. lol
Birm did a nice write up on him recently. You guys should check it out.
I may have read it wrong, and if so then I absolutely agree. I don't think Barrett will leave after this season either. I was just making a note that it's a possibility. My little public service announcement for the week.
Plus I'm stuck at Camp Ashland, Nebraska and this is the first time I've had any sort of reliable internet connection in more than two weeks. So I'm just excited to read about/post about the Buckeyes!!
You're correct, Seattle, in that players have to play through their third year of eligibility before entering the NFL draft, however, you're incorrect in saying JT has at least two more years with us since he will be a RS sophomore in the fall. This will be his third year in an Ohio State uniform, so he could go after this next season.
How about per the 11w homepage? It's been up for a while now. Love the enthusiasm, but check the site first to ensure they get their hits, ya know?
All three could potentially declare for the draft after this season. Since JT Barrett is a RS Sophomore, this will be his third expended year of eligibility - making him an NFL prospect.
Do I think all three will be gone after this year? No, I do not.
Whoa there DJ. Wichita, Kansas is actually a really nice place that I call home.
Looks like it's time for today's installment of Fun Facts About Wichita:
-Did you know that Wichita has more sunny days than Miami or Honolulu? I don't believe that stat either.
-Are you a fan of Pizza Hut or White Castle? Both started here in the middle of nowhere, er, Wichita. (So did Freddy's Frozen Custard and Spangles, but those are more regional)
-Wichita is the air capitol of the world! Responsible for more aviation industry lay-offs than anywhere else!
-I received my Bachelor's from a school called Friends University. Once called Friends University of Central Kansas. Think about it.
-It is illegal for a restaurant to serve cherry pie a la mode on Sundays in Wichita. Which I just learned and will now put to the test this coming Sunday.
Come to think of it, your review of why to root for the Shockers was probably one of the nicest things anybody will say about Wichita for years to come.
P.S.- Gregg Marshall is, in fact, a Warlock. I can attest to this as most definitely being true. And I'm pretty sure Charles Koch must be not-so-secretly paying him a
little lot extra on the side.
You're a big guy, why didn't you encourage Porter Gustin a little harder into becoming a Buckeye?
Who have you had a chance to connect with in your class? Also, who do you most look forward to lining up next to on the current offensive line?
Well if you were 9Route that wouldn't be a problem.
Although i bet he'd upvote it nine times and downvote it once. Just because.
