With all the underclassmen on scholarship, do you see the same limited number of scholarships in the 2018 class as there are in the 2017 class ?
If we strikeout with Mond and Martell, do we still take a second QB in the class ?
Just wait til coach Mick gets a hold of him !!!
Reading Birm's follow up, I don't think it was Judson's reason, it was his excuse. Seems both sides saw a decomittment coming anyways. The Dean situation probably left a lot of people salty, and it's just a way for Judson to try to discredit tOSU. Anymore recruiting is getting as bad as politics
I don't think he's sneaking around, I think he went and wants everyone to know. Do you really think that the staff is OK with him going to a rival on what is probably the largest recruiting days of the year ? If they are ok with it they are giving him their blessing to explore other options. If the staff was unaware, or was not OK with it, it really doesn't look good for Clark. On Saturday there was 100,000 at the stadium and Clark wasn't one of them.
You figure he do his due diligence before his parents allowed him to tattoo it all over his arm.
He'd probably have to be offered by bama first. He's only been offered by tOSU, and Illinois
Why would a kid who has an Ohio State tattoo, who father drives an OSU van, who has been to every OSU event possible miss the biggest event of the spring to attend the Alabama spring game ? Especially since there have multiple QB recruits on campus over the past few weekends. I'm sorry if everyone feels that the term "butt hurt" is out of line, but he clearly did this to make a statement.
Hopefully he can get an offer from Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Ohio U, or Otterbein. A cover up would be cheaper.
Probably feeling a little butt hurt and wanting to get some attention. He's been all OSU, and to for him to miss the spring game is huge, at least on his part. I don't think he's progressed as much as the staff has hoped, and he probably feel's the writing is on the wall.
Honestly, I'm really on the fence about this whole situation. On one hand you accept the commitment from a recruit and you figure that he wants to play for tOSU, he commits early in the process, and decides that he was just holding a spot till something better comes along. We currently have at least one commit right now that the crystal balls have him going anywhere but tOSU. On the other hand you have a one who committed early seems to want to be a buckeye but is getting nudged out for some one better. The whole recruiting process is ugly, but no one keeps track of the number of recruiting battles that are won or lost, at the end of the day it comes down to who wins or loses on the field. It's a business, gone are the days when a handshake and a man's word was all that was needed to seal a deal, a person's word doesn't mean much of anything anymore. If Sibley stays or if Sibley goes, none of us will even care, we'll probably be on this same forum talking about the next 4 star recruit who we're gonna flip, or talking about our 5 star commit who's visiting an SEC school next weekend. We expect the best, becoming the best isn't pretty, staying the best get's even uglier. I guess all you can really do is put your faith in the coaching to give you the best ! You may not always agree with the path that's chosen to get there, but in January when we're celebrating another National Championship, who's really gonna care.
Here's a pic of him with Damon Webb and Webb was listed at 5'11"
I guess hiring the parents of recruits seems a little unethical, but oh well.
I got an idea, start another Mecole Hardman thread !
But we are THE Ohio State University, and they should want to play here no matter where they're from.
Gary to Ole Miss ???? Must be the high quality education mama's looking for.
Waycracken is that you ?
Just wondering who gets picked first, Jalin or Braxton ? Both are similar size, Braxton a little bit bigger, both are dynamic playmakers, Braxton probably a little more of a threat. Jalin probably a little better receiver, but Braxton made some amazing catches. But based on what I've seen I see Braxton as a better prospect, and I don't see him going until very late in the draft if he even goes at all.
I really hope he becomes a buckeye !!! Looks like he'll stick around for 4 years and finish his degree rather than fall into the trap of playing for a quality football program and jumping ship after 3 years.
Bag man wins everytime ! Just ask Cam Newton !
They probably offered his mom a job or something. NEXT
Every year there is a position of need and everyone thinks the sky is falling. A couple years ago it was safety and then linebacker. The staff always finds a way to reel in the best players available. Recruiting is a game. Great coaches make great players. Trust in Urban and the Staff because in the end it will be OK.
Good for him - #ichigan still SUCKS !!!!
Yea I heard his dad looks just like him.
That was my thought exactly !!! LOL !!!!
