Grant would sure look good in Black and Gold. The Steelers will probably add two CBs in this draft, and have shown a penchant for drafting OSU/B1G players lately. Grant in the 4th to the Burgh would be ideal. If he blows the doors off at the combine a 2 or 3 pick might be necessary.
I didn't read ALL the comments (because there's so damn many anymore). But am i the only one who thinks tOSU can get away with not signing a QB in this class? Barrett will only be a Sophmore next year, and we are obviously 3 deep. With Burrows and Gibson most likely red shirting, and DClark coming in 2017 I think they can get away without singing a QB in 2017.
Side note great to see this site blow up the way it has!
Some say you're a dreamer........
Gwynn was a hell of a man but I'd still take Clemente based on an overall godliness quality. Also lets Hope that Edsall and Franklin do become the biggy and tupac of the B1G. That way Urban and Dantanio aka Dre and Diddy can go about running shit for the next few decades. Lol
It's great to be a buckeye and steeler fan!! It's going to be fun watching Shazier and Heyward dominate on the inside for years to come.
I hope he doesn't make the trip either! I think him making 2 trips to ND in 2 weeks would say a lot about the way he is leaning. Need to keep the best athlete in ohio in state! Sucks when they go elsewhere
Best season in Buckeye History! So many close games week in and week out, Tresselball def knocked a few years off a lot of buckeye fans lives that year but it was well worth it!
Most Universities are just a notch behind Wall St, DC, some religious institutions, some defense attorneys, the NFL and the NCAA when it comes to greed. In 15-20 years when the "amateur" college football model has disappeared completely we will all know why: GREED! scUM is a prime example to use caution when trifling with fans.
Man Glennville just constantly produces talent on top of talent!!
Man i just watched Sting terrorize the NWO for 10 straight minutes. I don't think I've ever been hit so hard in the childhood in my entire life.
Even the head coach for US soccer knows that their is no hope. If we beat Ghana, hell even tie Ghana in group stage and not lose by a combined 8 goals to Portugal and Germany it should be considered a win for US soccer. This WC could be even uglier than 98 for the US.
And this is why getting so worked up one way or the other about recruiting is lame. This kid was a 5 star and a headliner of our top 3 recruiting class in the country. Now he is at TT with no hard feelings on either side. It was best for him to be home with his family in trying times and we all wish him the best. But I guarantee all through his recruitment this kid heard some pretty ridiculous stuff, especially for an 18 year old HS kid. 5 stars have it alot worse than most but thats beside the point.Its just unfair for so much pressure to be put on these kids in HS. I'm guilty of it too, but 11W did a good job today ramming home the point. Its a fine line though that this website needs to walk on message boards deciphering between peoples opinions and just mean spiritedness. Everyone needs to lighten up on these kids fans and media alike. The media does a great job building these kids up as gods gift to the football program and they havent even played a down. Then when someone doesn't pan out for whatever reasons the fans do a great job of ripping them apart. Not in this case obviously but it does happen all too often. Us and 11W both need to heed their message today and temper our expectations and negativity towards these kids until they atleast play a down in the scarlet and gray.
Ya Tres got stuck with a random email and not knowing if it was true or not to two weeks later being thrown all the info at once and not knowing how to handle it. If siding with the lawyers over the ncaa was his biggest crime then so be it, a 5 year show cause is ridiculous punishment for it. Tres could have just thought that because it was a federal case it had no baring on the NCAA so he kept quiet the entire time. It might not have been until after all of the player suspensions that it set in he too commuted a violation. Either or if he didn't know or if he knew exactly what he was doing a 5 year death sentence from coaching was extreme.
Or soccer even. I mean a World Cup for the US is like the SB to the Browns.
I think simply saying gray box articles are ONLY for celebration and congratulations would have sufficed. This article was a bit over the top calling out a user, but still funny nonetheless.
"Don't stay in Florida" I don't care who you are everyone should take this mans advice! IDC if it was given to a recruit, my first born, or Dan Marino those are some definite words of wisdom.
Agree completely. I think Hillard would seriously get the ball rolling if he commits. I think Baker would be a lock soon after and hopefully that would push Harris's hand and make Gibson take a bigger interest. I think Kirk is a stretch for us but if he sees all this talent im sure it would increase our odds dramatically. The 5 mentioned will be what makes or breaks this class. If we could hit 80% it would be another top 3 class for Meyer and Co.
How do you combat the height of some of these 6"4, 6"5 WRs and TEs that are popping up everywhere in the pros?? With 6"3 and 6"4 DBs. If he can develop this kid has first round potential written all over him.
I have no problem with the negative recruiting in either of the 2 stories above. Instead of calling it negative recruiting lets call it gamesmanship instead. There's no doubt that much more horrific things have been said to recruits (especially w the Internet and cell phones) by coaches, other players, and fans alike. Most recruits aren't that completely naive though, and hopefully they have adults around them that can help decipher through the garbage. As for whats really listened to though it is up to the coaches and if they want to talk trash in front of recruits so be it. Some players will buy in others won't, sometimes it will work and sometimes it will come back to bite them. All should be fair as far as wits and gamesmenship goes, it's when bank accounts get involved; that's the problem.
I was always under the assumption that Tres had to make the choice between impedeing an NCAA investigation or impedeing a federal prosecution. When he was told about the federal case I thought he was told in confidence and not to tell anyone or risk being indicted himself. Then the NCAA came around after that and said we need to know everything you knew and when. That put Tres into a position where he either had to side with the NCAA or with the Feds.
Ya I read in another article that it was ND and OSU as his final 2 too. Just can't see it though. I was thinking Iowa because of his brother and Bama cuz of the NFL production they have produced lately at LB. I just don't see what ND has to offer that isn't trumped by Bama or OSU tenfold. Iowa is a wildcard where he could start immediately and has family their. So I'm thinking those 3 not ND, unless you know of something ND had to offer that I'm forgetting?
I think after you watch so much pro sports you can just see the special players. All the great ones have it, it can't be explained but they just have something that puts them head and shoulders above everyone in their craft. Jordan, Gretzky, Montana, Crosby, LeBron, Brady you can't point to one thing so people just say intangibles because theres no words for it, just greatness.
Its a lot harder to judge in college though. A player can be great one year and awful the next, or awful for 3 years and great for one. It makes many "experts" cringe because its so hard to predict. Hopefully Bosa keeps improving but you never know with all the weight on his shoulders, and some forgotten soul like Steve Miller could blow up. Calling any one player or team "the best in the country" before 1 ball is even snapped is just playing with fire.
Lol ditto, it's rare for the valley to produce elite D1 talent, when they end up at scUM it's like a punch in the gut.
I think he's a Buckeye. If I had to guess his undisclosed top 2 are either OSU and Iowa which I believe we would have the bag or OSU and Bama which is a little tougher but if those are the 2 OSU holds the edge in academics and strength coach, with nfl talent being basically even. And I'm saying Hilliard is the #1 recruit in Ohio, not number 2.
