I believe Ohio State allows former players to come back and complete their degrees for free.
Anyone hear anything new regarding Nick Bosa? I know he's a pretty quiet guy and he's taken some visits recently. Just curious if our position with him has changed at all?
Jamarco Jones is only 6'4"? I can't remember someone that small starting at LT... I smell a left guard.
What's the deal with Layne? How do you let a great split end like Layne, who is in state get away? We're making an Indiana and Michigan guy a priority and forgoing the guy in our backyard?
MSU is going to get a great prospect...
Birm- Do you still feel good about Bosa to OSU? I saw an article on 247 saying he was being recruited hardest by USC. Does anyone else have a legit shot or is he just doing his due diligence?
I think you'd have to rebalance the divisions if you went to that model. The problem is you'd probably have to put Sparty in the west to make it fair, which means there would be years we wouldn't play them. They're a great program and I'd prefer to have them on our schedule every year. JMO.
Big news. I'd love to beat Oregon at their best but I won't complain about any advantage.
Kind of surprised. Figured the VT game would be a sell out.
Haters are gonna hate.
Like the poster above said, he's the #2 recruit in the country... tough to blow up more than that.
He is a freak. I know we're recruiting him hard, hope he picks the good guys (but I'm not holding my breath.).
Gibson? That came out of left field.
Whoa... we have some optimists in the house today.
I'm cautiously optimistic about Hilliard, but I'm still not totally convinced we'll get him. Based on when he's making his decision, I'd say he'd be my pick, but far from a lock.
Cornell.... I guess we'll see. Lots of recent CBs to the good guys. Personally, I think Sweat is a pipe dream. I don't care if he's visiting tomorrow. I just don't like our odds.
He's going to be redshirted. That's what LJ told him when they recruited him. He's pretty raw and he needs to work on strength and technique.
Doesn't have SEC speed.
I'd upvote you if I could.
How sweet would it be if they had to get their next head coach from "Little Brother"?!
What's you read on this guy? Do we actually have a shot?
Music to my ears (hoping you're referring to gibson)!
Is the plan to still only take one QB?
Man I love this guy. Humble, thoughtful, and wise beyond his years... (Maybe he could advise ol' Marcely's Jones about his twitter posts now?)
I hope he tears it up this season and is a 1st round draft pick. He's one of those guys that you want to succeed because they do it the right way.
The real question is would an early commitment by Gibson really mean anything? I don't think so... he seems pretty fickle.
They wait because Meyer is going after the best, regardless of state. For the top 150 guys, typically you have to be patient and it's a dogfight until the end for them. If they offered the Ohio and local guys, they'll commit and fill the spots up well before the elite guys make their decisions.
My guess is that the staff thinks they can offer late and make up ground quickly because these guys are Ohio players and most of them grew up fans of tOSU.
