Parris is 6-1 and 185 lbs as a 16 year old. I would not be surprised if he grows another inch or two and leaves Columbus in the 240 lb range. Depending on how he grows, he could play anywhere from WR / DB to RB / LB. He can take a red shirt and still be younger than most graduating Seniors. Study hard young man, and be well on your way to a Graduate Degree before you turn 21.
Could be worse....just ask Gay Focker.
Didn't Bama's Clinton Ha Ha-Dix post an official 4.58? LMAO.
I like what I see when it comes to his outside stroke. On the flip side, his right-hand-only lay-up shooting makes me cringe. He really needs to learn how to go up strong with his left hand when he is going to the left side of the rim...especially in traffic. He can get away with that at his current level, but it will get him a lot of leather dinners in the Big Ten.
I like the Christian sub-context too, but what I'm expecting is "You've been Served" after KD drops 35 in a win.
The style of play utilized by the Buckeye D the past two years did anything but showcase Roby's ability to disrupt WR routes. It is hard to force a WR to change his route when you are lined up 10 yards deep.
Sad to say that Bert and TuscaLucifer are right in that the rule change will reduce the number of injuries. The fake injuries in particular will be greatly reduced....
I'm game for just about anything in Scarlet and Gray, but those are some fugly ass shoes.
"If the games could last 35 minutes rather than 40 minutes we may be undefeated".
Good point....with the exception of the games against Notre Dame at at Michigan State.
Always love it when Ramzy has his best fastball working.
Still impressive that Roby dropped a guy that outweighed him by about 75 lbs like a shot.
Thanks for the insider's view of the recruiting process. As impressive as this recruiting class is with respect to football talent, I am even more impressed with the high personal character of this group. Tall timber indeed. Welcome aboard Meechy.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Mitchell family. I hope all works out the best it possibly can for them. While I completely understand and respect the decision, I'm greatly saddened that Mike is leaving the Buckeye family. I was truly looking forward to watching his successes grow on the field. Vaya con dios.
Welcome to the forum, and I'm proud to give you your first up-vote.
There were clearly lots of communications breakdowns within the secondary and between the secondary and LB corps last season. Call it a lack of coordination, which more than likely went back to issues between Fickell, Withers and Coombs. Look, I don't want to cast blame on anyone involved. I am just happy that changes have been made, which should result in a far more cohesive pass defense. One thing that really impresses me about Coaches Ash and Johnson is that they strike me as excellent teachers. This bodes well for player development, which is of key importance given the overall youth on the defensive side of the ball. The future looks bright...Go Bucks!
People forget that of the 11 LB's recruited in the 2008 - 2011 classes, 6 washed out due to injury or attrition. Think about that for a second...4 classes worth of LB's and they couldn't even fill the 2-deep. And of the 5 that have actually played, only Shazier has looked to be NFL caliber. This from a position group most Buckeye fans felt was an embarrassment of riches a few short years ago. I only bring this up because in truth, Luke Fickell has not had the caliber of LB corps to work with that we have all come to expect.
More Kentucky fans:
Why not? Woody always said he was Notre Dame's best recruiter. He didn't like losing recruits to ND or TTUN, but if he wasn't going to get them, he'd rather not have to play against them.
Great point. Hard to top the days of WVU's Johnny Dingle and Scooter Berry making a point to sit next to each other on the bench.
Sounds as though Sean is already well acquainted with Mickey Marroti. Welcome aboard to all of the new Buckeyes!
I was hopeful of this outcome last night, but certainly not expecting it. Great job Buckeyes! Hit your shots and good things happen. I really appreciated the energy Amir and Trey brought down low.
Amen to that, Wilkins! I have been thinking the exact same thing. Vandy has enjoyed impressive records the past two years, but it was done with smoke and mirrors. The 'Dores won a lot of games against weak competition, and pretty much lost to every above average team they faced. They dumped Northwestern and Ohio State from their schedule in favor of the likes of U-Mass and UAB. Had they not done that, Vandy's 8-4 would quite likely have been 6-6. Franklin was smart to parlay that into an infinitely better coaching position while he had the chance.
True that PSU will be back to a full 85 scholarship roster in 2016, but it will likely be highly overloaded with underclassmen. That said, look out for the Nits in 2018. No guarantees that Franklin will still be there then.
You could not be more correct. Getting Trey to play solid D in the paint and make a play or two on offense is critical. Amir plays decent D in the lane until he gets tired, but all too often, the Bucks have been abused inside when he steps off the court. It just shows how much Evan Ravenel is missed for his solid play in a back up role. I'm hoping Trey McDonald finds a way to contribute consistently.
