Okay. I see what you are saying now. Still think it would be a great move for Dobbins. If he has the talent he can make it to the NFL having played HBack in Urban's scheme. He looks like somebody who could be great at catching the ball and getting some carries each game. Everybody's body can only take so much and while these kids generally think of themselves as indestructible, they would be better served longevity wise by not being a workhorse RB. If he has the chops he can get maybe 12 touches a game as an HBack. More if he is a return man too. Plenty to showcase his talent but not so many to get worn down. 12 may be high compared to what our HBacks are getting now but that is largely because of Zeke and an anemic passing attack. Dobbins is a talent who could get 12.

I'd love to see PSU get badly embarrassed at home by the Buckeyes this year. Like beat them by 50.

I don't know anything about Honingford. He is probably a good kid despite choosing to attend michigan, but if he is tempted to talk any smack he should first consult with one Mr. Kalis.

Poor pass blocking is why change didn't happen in the past. If that changes and JT can progress some we will see something new. Yes, they will change it if they can.

703, never seen him before. Peng Jiamu was my neighbor.

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.
