Their DB situation is pretty bad now compared to OSU's depth chart in the secondary. I bet they have convinced him he will play early and maybe significant minutes as a freshman.
Great work as alway Birm! Any particular reason why all of a sudden Mr. Davis feels that Auburn might be the best place for his future?
especially this late in the process.
I wouldn't be shocked if he ends up at Auburn after this visit this late in the game. It sucks to if you lose a kid of this caliber this late because its almost impossible to replace them.
I hope he goes to UMD. I understand Bama has been really good the last 5-7 years but there is so much depth at each position they all can't play. They talent they have landed at CB the last 3 classes is borderline nuts for example.
Sounds like the Wade family have thought about this decision for awhile. It would be a huge steal pulling a kid of his talent out of FL.
Great article Jeremy. I know he was interviewed by an OSU website, but it sounds like the Bucks are in a really good position to land this young man.
King and Bosa in 2016 would be a nice trio to go along with Cooper.
Great pickup by the staff. hopefully the staff can gain some ground with Bragg to make this an incredible class for 15. I hope Kentucky or Kansas lands Cheick Diallo to give the staff a better shot at Bragg.
It will be hard for any program to pull him from UW, but I think that OSU has at least a shot. I read elsewhere that he already has plans to visit again in the summer.
Not surprised by this at all, I never expected his commitment to last until signing day. We need to land a couple safeties to help build depth at the position
Nice article Birm. Very impressive film for this kid. He will be hard to get away from the U, but he seems to have built a solid relationship with coach Smith already early in the game.
Damn! Sucks the staff was never able to get him on campus for a visit.
One of the more impressive films I have seen of any 2015 DB. I would just describe this kid as playmaker.
I have read that Giddens has serious interest in OSU, but I have not heard of Jaylen Brown. Does Brown have serious interest in OSU, or could it be a repeat of Okafor and Jones where Jones had no interest in going to OSU? I think that lead to Okafor not really considering OSU since he was always going to play with Jones.
Hope Johnson works out. Seems like over the last 3-5 years all of OSU's high profile LB recruits have not panned out.
Great write up as always!!! Is Calvin Ridley being included in the class just you kind of going out on limb? I just haven't seen to much about Ridley and his interest in OSU. I know Coach Smith was able to steal Johnnie Dixon from the U last year?
Seems like the staff hit a home run with his visit. Sounds like coach Meyer and coach Smith have positioned themselves well to be one of Kirk's finalists for sure.
Great insight as always. Hopefully he is confident enough about his abilities to not be turned away by depth. I believe in your article that it said coach Smith stated he would be used like Philly Brown rather then the Wilson or Samuel. After this year OSU will not have very much proven depth at true WR position in my opinion.
I am intrigued by Dexter Williams. He seems to be very interested in OSU from the articles I have read about him and his highlight tape is very impressive.
If somehow coach Smith could steal Ridley from South Florida that would be amazing.
Great update! Seems the staff has a real shot here if they can have a great visit. Urban must have know what he was doing bringing coach Smith on board huh?
Wow. He will be super hard to pull, but he must have some serious interest to visit on his own dime. I find it interesting that OSU is the only midwest school he is visiting also.
