My friend is an assistant coach down in the area and said that some non power 5 school is gonna get the next LeVeon Bell in this Morgan Ellison kid. Not great in the open field but has good enough speed, great hands, bounces off players with his strength and has elite vision already.

I would love to see him in the 17 class but it's so tough when you're in it for so many elite recruits. Add that with him coming back from BOTH of his legs being broken and it's hard to see him getting offered.

This class might be good but I expect this class with their talent combined with a few guys from the last class to at least win one. I always think when you get a great coaching staff with a roster loaded full of talent, you can't help but to get high expectations. 

That being said, I think the way Urban runs his team, the way his offense runs, I would still expect them to compete with lower rated players. His offense is truly dynamic and when you get in a rhythm and run it to perfection, you get great results. See late 2014 Tom Herman for example.

Lol I'm just saying, the guys that always think they know more than the guys actually in the profession only seem to be right only about 5% of the time. Funny isn't it?

I bet you thought we had a better shot with Sam Bruce, Hardman, Gesicki, Cager, Tony Brown and probably Anzalone too. Just to name a few. Probably still waiting on Brandon Harris to leave LSU and come here.

I always lol at the players who are "fierce competitors" but would rather go to a place where there's less competition and more of a chance to see the field early. 

I would rather go to an Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson or Florida State before I go to Penn State... You going to sacrifice winning/being relevant for starting your freshman year on...

I'm interested to see that if the 5 best OL include Prince and Pridgeon, one of them move to guard. Highly unlikely but still you can't sit a potential starter just because he doesn't fit the guard role... Completly thinking outside of the box: with Pridgeon being a big boy, 6'8? and same with Prince 6'7, I could see them being bookends and Jamarco sliding to guard. 

Pridgeon/Jones/Elflein/Price/Prince = whoa

Realistically?

Jones/Meechy/Elflein/Price/Pridgeon

I think the Weber/Samuel combo is going to be a pretty nasty one. No one will ever be as complete as Zeke but don't think the run game will drop off that much with these two combined. Add in Dontre and possibly Demario off the edge and I'm not too worried about the run game. The pass game needs to step up big time and the WRs are really gonna be needed this year. That's my concern

I love LeBron and think yes he should be the highest paid player by far but I mean does he really need to be!?

LeBron had 90+ million before his 19th birthday. Had made hundreds of millions of dollars throughout his career and just signed a LIFETIME deal with Nike worth over a BILLION dollars. I don't think it's crazy to think LeBron could accept significantly less these next few years, maybe bringing in some quality bench guys. I know it's different in football but I've always wondered why guys who are making millions in endorsement deals and have had huge contracts throughout their NBA careers wouldn't take a league minimum for a year or two or in their last few years to try and bring in quality players to help them cement their legacy. Unless Bron is trying to set up his future grandkids' grandkids I don't know why he needs a max contract. 

If I was LeBron or any other superstar and I wanted to cement my legacy as one of the greats if not THE greatest in my sport, I'd take less money, pay the good young core of the team, go out get some solid rotation guys (not superstars) and stack my titles on the way to becoming the GOAT.

There's also a handful of Cass Tech guys that any other year could probably end up at Ohio State that won't this year because of tight numbers. Unfortunately they'll probably end up at Michigan... with DPJ. 

I think he knows what he's doing playing to the crowd and fans. Ohio State has a huge following on social media and kids live for likes and retweets nowadays. He has never tipped his hand before and all of a sudden he's tweeting more and more about the Buckeyes, seeming like they're the favorite. I want to believe that Urban and Co could snag Grimes/DPJ/Lindsey but I just think it's too good to be true.

Boston College was 0-9 in the ACC. I'll be afraid of Peppers and Don Brown when they play the big boys. Unfortunately Michigan is gonna feast until probably the MSU and OSU games cause their schedule is weeeeeak. Like no really look how bad it is

If Ohio State handles business with a relatively tough schedule, we could see a #1 vs #2 matchup in the shoe.
