Awesome article. Wish the Grandstaff highlight showed the end of his dunks! That kid knows how to finish around the rim.
I went to Kent State and saw him when he played for Akron. It took me a second to get it, but every time he touched the ball, the crowd shook their keys! It was freakin' hilarious. Even when I was at Kent State, I was 100% Buckeyes. But it was fun to be there during the Antonio Gates era and the Elite 8 run!
I can't say I'm an expert on Alabama, but I've lived in Huntsville AL, Columbus OH, and Dallas TX with several visits to Austin. If location had anything to do with the decision, University of Alabama would be last on my list.
Who knows what his Dad is thinking or going through. Can't blame anyone unless you know the true, exact, behind-the-scene situation. It's been nice to see in the Forums that many people have held off on passing judgement. I know firsthand what it was like to have my mom way too involved when I made my college decision. I hope it works out for MM as well as it luckily did for me.
some want to pull his offer (what?!?).
Unbelievable. Some people actually would want a university to pull an offer of free education to a high school kid because of indecision. That's delusional and shows a complete lack of empathy.
Sounds like Jones is an essential piece of a position that is losing several starters, while McDowell is icing on the cake. I am hoping for both, but rooting harder to hang on to Jones. Even if McDowell's parents have his best intentions in mind (which it sounds like), it sucks to publicly have your parents rule out schools you like. Best of luck to the kids wherever they end up.
Good video. Really liked how he came down with the ball several times in a crowd. Obviously the speed there is unreal. Can't wait for him! The yellow circles and constant pauses did get annoying after a while.
I think Beanie is better, but not by such a large margin that I find it unbelievable if people liked Hyde better. I think both had a tremendous amount of power, but Beanie had elusiveness in college that outmatched Hyde. Both are great running backs, but especially with Hyde fresh in our minds, people forget how great Beanie was at OSU. Perfect for Tressel. A shame injuries derailed Beanie's NFL career. Hope Hyde has much better luck.
Ummm, he's a high school kid enjoying his recruiting process and interacts in a friendly manner with fans. Even if he doesn't end up here, he seems like a great kid.
Thank you very much! I'm been down for last couple days with one of the worst colds I've ever had. 11W has been my only entertainment. Great community here!
Thanks for info.... imaginary +1 since I don't have enough stickers yet for a real upvote!
Re: Marcus Baugh... did something else happen with him recently?
He kinda looks like the guy Debo beat up
If I remember correctly, Noah Brown was feeling Rutgers and his home-town school. However, his support circle was encouraging of Ohio State. So I guess it works both ways. As long as these support circles are motivated by these kids' best interests, I see no problem in adults helping recruits through life changing decisions.
