I have never heard of personality & skills being referred to as 'brand'.... or character, education, accountability, dedication, & sacrifice for that matter.

Brand is pretty universally referred to when promoting one's image & marketability. I'm not going to say that he is a bad guy for saying it, but we also can't act like he was saying something that he wasn't.

It's weird because I never like to say anything negative about a recruit, for a number of reasons. But I have always had a bad feeling that Mack was going to ditch us on prom night, kind of like Guarantano did. Hearing him talking about building his brand, it really makes me wonder how he is going to perceive his brand when he might spend the first year in special teams mop up duty. I'm sure 95% of blue chip prospects have similar thoughts, but I think most understand why that's a poor choice of words and can't really be said at this stage in the game.

All that being said, Urban and the crew vouch for him and obviously see something very special in him. I trust Urban, and I'm sure he is both a high character kid and a hard worker. We shall see on June 7th if he thinks his brand is best served in scarlet & grey. If it is, I will be happy that we got another stud, and I will be anxious to see him perform.

After all, Evan Spencer built a hell of a brand blocking and being a locker room leader.

I agree.. And we can't lose sight in hiw much kids change when they become men. Age 17 to 22 years old is a big difference. These rankings are very accurate in predicting immediate contributors, but there is no way to predict who will 'pan out' when it's all said and done.

Guys like Darron Lee are an anomoly. A hybrid type athlete with a ton of heart and great coaching. You can't slight Rivals or 247 for not pegging him as a tier 1 linebacker in high school when he was playing QB.

I totally agree with Kareem that there are camp guys and game guys. His attitude seems second to none and I think he is exactly what we need. I also hope that he isn't resting on his laurels. I heard six months ago that this kid was a once in five years type of talent at RB. (Made me literally forget that kid from Kentucky's name).. And now it's a little bit sobering hearing a well respected recruiting service say that he lacks elite talent that they are seeing elsewhere.

Just keep working hard Reem, and you will be something very special at tOSU.

Based on what I have seen thus far, I am completely comfortable with Cardale being our starting QB with Braxton coming in (frequently) in some "mix it up" situations. JT would be the guy coming in during mop up time. (Scary thought for the cans on the schedule).

In 2016 Cardale and Braxton go on to the NFL, and JT takes over the team as the full time starter and leads us to our third straight national title.

This is just opinion based on what I see as giving us the best chance to win.

The one reason that I'm honestly not so sure what Braxton Miller is going to do:

1. With all the different ways that a young athlete in 2015 can make a public statement; media, twitter, press conference, etc.. He could easily come out and make a 1000% iron clad, you have my word Buckeye Nation, I am not going anywhere statement.. But he hasn't. 

He doesn't owe anybody that per say.. But in terms of just eliminating the distraction from the team, he could. Until I hear that from him, I say it's 50/50.

Thank you for the daily content Birm.. You truly are the man..

That being said I always hope to get a little inside scoop on Nick Bosa, and for a 5-star monster that might end up in S&G, there has been very little said about him.

Is that because we are such a lock to get him, or is he really just that quiet in his recruiting? Is he a foregone conclusion or should we be at all concerned? The only thing I have heard is that he is a possible late summer decision... 

Bottom line: Would you bet your life and the life of everyone you know and love that Nick Bosa is going to be a Buckeye?

He came in and was very productive as a true freshman at tOSU, then he followed that up with another more productive sophomore campaign that was cut short by an unfortunate injury. 

Do do you remember where Carlos Hyde was as a sophomore? What about Troy Smith? I am 100% sure that a continued trajectory puts him in the big leagues, and these next two years will tell us which round. 

Just because Urban implied that he was a Percy Harvin talent at 18 years old, doesn't mean we need to hold him to that standard before he even fully develops.
