Glad you felt well enough to post Birm!! Thanks for all the updates and news!!
J.T. , Zeke, Devin, and our offensive line all played lights out!! Props to J.T.!!
Best of luck on a speedy recovery Dontre!!
Dre'mont Jones, Jashon Cornell, and we'll have Dylan Thompson back from injury. Might as well include him in the dream '15, since he's been out all year due to injury. We could always use 1 or 2 more d-linemen, but I'm happy with the guys we have so far. Gallimore would be just icing on the cake.
Can't remember the last Buckeye offense that has allowed 7 sacks!!
One thing that sticks out, his SPEED!! Love the offer. Maybe we can get Jashon Cornell in his ear.
What are your strengths and weaknesses?? What do you need to work on the most to get to that next level?
Love the news on McCall and Judson, even though Judson is 2017. Danny Clark will be in his ear I'm sure.
Crazy times!! Best of luck to Brax on his recovery. J.T. will be alright!!
Nice. Seems like this freshman class is losing them quicker than any of Urbans' prior freshman classes. have a feeling we may see a lot of youngsters on the field sooner rather than later.
Like the offer, but gimme Jake Hausmann and Luke Farrell!!
And only a sophomore?? Love the big corner offers with all the tall Wrs there are in the Big Ten and around the country.
Damn, that list for Virginia Tech, if it sticks, is gonna be a hell of a weekend for recruits!! Expect that list for "The Game" to grow as well.
Wonder if Urban gives him a shot to come back, now that there might be a chance that the drugs weren't his?? Did they drug test Sprinkle?? I would assume so, but you never know.
With 3 Qbs in class, someone is getting moved to another position. Probably Locksley, if I had to guess, as he's listed as ATH. instead of QB. Crazy, crazy stuff.
Mean Gene, the myth, the legend!! Hope work isn't killing you. Glad to see the quick bits back!!
Way too early to worry about recruiting or rankings. As far as getting "star" recruits, I don't worry about whether they're a 5 star or 2 star. If we offer, and the staff accepts their commitment, it's good enough for me. When they get to college, you can throw away the star system anyway. They all start from ground zero. We're still in on some big names and we're always gonna lose out on some highly ranked kids we recruit. That's what happens when you recruit the best of the best. Not disappointed in this class whatsoever.
As far as 2016 and beyond go, we're in on 4 of the top ten passers in the class. I do think it will be key to get one of them locked down sooner than later, so we don't start out slower than usual, and have a class "leader". And we already have Danny Clark locked up for 2017, so we have a class leader for that year already.
Thought he would stay in-state with that team up north or state, but love that we got him!! Hurts the state up north and keeps that Cass Tech pipeline running.
Great piece Jordan and thanks for the updates. Quick question, any names, not mentioned on your list, who might be strong plan "Bs"?? Or perhaps someone we should look out for that's visiting for FNL, who may earn an offer that already hasn't?
WOW!! Great photos!!
Like his press coverage and tackling. Seems to sniff out where the ball is going. Like the offer.
Love the idea of rotating d-linemen. Keeps them fresher, is a great recruiting tool, and the kids that aren't starters, but prove through practice and academics, that deserve to get playing time, actually see the field. The only way I would be against this, is if there was a huge difference between the 1's and 2's, which in our case, I don't believe will be an issue. Besides, if it's a close game, you know who will be on the field. It also pushes the starters. if they're underperforming, the next guy up should get a chance to push for more playing time.
Like the offer. Hope we can flip him from the U.
