This is what Birm wrote about a week back re: Danny Davis:

"He’s as good an athlete as anyone in the state but he’s never shown much interest in being recruited or football in general. He’s a dynamic basketball player."

IMO he's seemed to love basketball more than football and I've read he has anxiety issues which, if true, could be hard to deal with the pressures at a place like tOSU for football. So I'm thinking Danny doesn't possess the "choke you over a game of checkers" quality that Urban looks for.

Hey 305,

great work as usual on keeping the rest of us up to date. Where on Bucknuts did you see this? Only thing I can find is a thread on Josh Palmer a WR from Florida. Not doubting you bc I could also be just as blind but was just curious.

Comment 16 Jan 2017

Ranking a 1000+ kids is always going to have its faults and errors. With that said, Myers did struggle in practice because his technique was to lunge forward instead of moving and trusting his feet. He's still really athletic and strong as an ox, but when technique fails those two qualities can struggle. However, I did watch the game and when put in his element he was mauling anyone who lined up across from him and didn't allow a pressure either. Also, keep in mind too they had him working out at center where he has never played before. Finally, with Josh's athletic ability and his unquestioned work ethic I myself have little doubt he will at least be an all conference type of performer for us at guard.

I've seen him play before he's faster than a 4.8. He's run hand timed 4.5'a and 4.6's before. Speed is where I should be but one thing he has you can't teach is size. Believe he was pushing almost 6-6 from what I've heard too.

Baron Browning and Keandre Jones are both in that same rare breed class as Lee and Shazier. Baron even more so at his current size 6-3 230 lbs will be bigger than all of them. Watched the Army AA game today and watched Baron blanket slot WR's on the East team the few plays they had him out there to do that.

Bc if you're not new to the recruiting scene diehard fans will be idiots and be bitter towards the kid and/or his family. I wasn't singling anyone out since every fan base has them but it's a reality every recruiting cycle. I'm not bitter at all and quite frankly don't appreciate the assumption I wouldn't do what's best for my kids. Lighten up Francis!

Lmao this is too much! Wherever Darnay ends up this is an epic troll job on his part reaching Skankhunt42 and Dildo Swaggins levels. 

Comment 07 Jan 2017

Should point out that if we get Sheffield he is likely a one and done. So that will help open up a spot in the 2018 cycle where numbers will be tight again. So win win for us.

Comment 07 Jan 2017

This is really weird since he is supposedly committing today in person in front of everyone. So unless they drive a limo onto the field.....

Comment 06 Jan 2017

Yep! He learned great technique at Bama (Saban is a good DB coach) and is a grown ass man at 200 lbs for a DB. If he gets the playbook down early in the spring I don't see anyone taking a starting CB spot from him. Plays very physical which is what you need in our system reminds me of Lattimore in that regard. Also runs a legit sub 4.4.

Comment 06 Jan 2017

Well if we get Sheffield technically it would be 4. He's a 5* on Scout and was a 5* on ESPN's rating as a HS senior. Pretty sure at the very least we get 1 of them and if it's just Sheffield we should all be excited bc he will start day 1.

Comment 05 Jan 2017

If heels going to USC he would be hanging out or spending a lot of half his time with them. The fact he's spent the majority of his time with Tate, Browning, and Okudah should really tell you all you need to know. It's almost like everyone forgot he was in Tyjon and Trevon's commitment video he really really close with Tyjon.

Comment 05 Jan 2017

Sheffield redshirted 1 year at Bama then transferred to a JUCO college. Do you not realize the amount of work and dedication it takes to leave a top 3 D1 program (where he was going to play his redshirt freshman year mind you) to go the JUCO route and get back to the D1 level. He's had 2 years of working hard and is in his junior year academically. It's no different than Hooker or Lattimore who started 1 year for us except they didn't take the high risk JUCO route. If you're trying to find a shorter playing time path to the NFL there's no better place than Ohio State or Bama lol.

Comment 02 Jan 2017

Would agree with Buckslan's observations on the listed measurements. I would add that Okudah has college ready measures less as well. Definitely Wade needs to add weight, but the good news is since he's an EE Marotti will be working with him starting next week.

Comment 01 Jan 2017

Lindsey had surgery already and has been rehabbing for a little while now. But he and Dobbins both will likely not be playing in the game. Just means they can do nothing but recruit for us ;)

Comment 01 Jan 2017

Sidenote: wanted to add that barring injury Chase Young being that size already is gonna be a star. Carries that weight really well and think he ends up in the 265-275+ range and with this speed and use of hands that is just scary.

Well I know reading is hard for you since I quoted further down that I don't claim to be in the know. Bout as good as your statement that Wilson didn't receive support from players who accused him of abuse lmao.
