There was a rumor that there was a DB who might not make into this class because of academics. This seems to be the realization of that rumor. I don't think it is anything more than that. This kid had great skills and film is my understanding so I'm not sure if the Staff was looking to jettison somebody that he would be the choice. In other words, the star rating probably means bupkis.
I think we had a kid from rural Colorado a while ago who transferred out too. It is a huge cultural adjustment to move from a rural community without much diversity to being a scholarship player at tOSU. Now I don't know that that was the major reason for Schmidt moving on but it may have been a factor and and it may have been a factor in the earlier kid from Colo.
I know it can be a big shock. I went from a rural kid in the middle nowhere to a melange of cultural influences and it took some adjustment. Add in the homesickness for a familiar environment and it is completely understandable that some would want to be back where they feel most comfortable regardless of their talent level.
The QB situation is interesting. Clark may be asked to take a gray-shirt but if other prospects don't see much improvement in our passing game this season they may not be much interested.
We took so many DBs last class that we don't have much room there. If Shaun Wade or Pryor opt out we have excellent prospects waiting to take their place.
Looking at the numbers I think we need 3 LBers.
I could see him instead of Lindsay. Dobbins can play HB or RB. If I was Dobbins I'd jump at the chance, the NFL is a pass happy league.
Yes, gray-shirt for Haubeil but I did forget Chrisman so 15 instead of 14. I'm not sure we can get to 15 so maybe somebody has to come off to get Chrisman in.
I don't see Cage and Williamson in this class but maybe they would take a gray-shirt.

Your parents forgot the 'e'. - Dan Quayle
The guy has history here. I'm sure he wears it proudly.
Lou likes free gear.
If Markell Johnson can reclassify, is he an upgrade?
Maybe a new coach wants some roster room. Just a guess.
The recruiting calendar is changing. Announcing your commitment date is not a savvy move.
Get a Chromebook.
Somebody send him that picture of Urban pointing at the camera.
Dig it deeper than you plan to dive. That is solid advice you can take to the bank.
Ref took out that guy on his face at the 1.
It is pronounced Stugotz.
Probably more of an opportunity for Hubbard at DE and Joey moves inside. But maybe not.
Quick, somebody say we won't get him because it so difficult to get players to leave the south.
Up vote whore.
But yeah, screw michigan.
Maybe he could get a MENSA tattoo.
Edit: Hell, that could be a felony.
Naw, that's Uncle Phil.
Yeah, I had to look it up. Had no idea.
Now that I do know still have no idea where to get them engraved.
Clemson looking strong right now. Buckeyes need better QB recruiting and development, and better DT recruiting
Are you sure he is a member of mensa? Why not just buy a Weber?
