Thanks for the clarity. Sad to hear though. Too bad he still is given his "TV Time".
Maybe the KID wanted to make sure he could commit to the school of his choice? Why not use a placeholder?

There OL coach Hiestand was Tennesee's former OL coach previously (where he placed 6 OT into the NFL in 8 seasons) and prior to that he coached several Pro Bowl lineman in his time spent coaching the Bears OL during their championship years (NFC). Needless to say he is good, and he has connections to Ohio. Coached at UC and Toledo.
Most impressive HS QB tape I have seen in quite a while. Only question one can have is regarding touch on short passes. Looks like the one to get in 2016, although who could complain if Haskins came on board instead?
Buckeye4NC I am not catholic or a ND fan, I am from Columbus and follow tOSU even though I have degrees from other institutions not named ND. That said, an undefeated ND belongs in the playoff over a one loss OSU. They play a tougher schedule (USC, Stanford, FSU) and deserve national respect for doing it, sadly there are too many people who hate ND because they are ND (should sound familiar if you have been a Buckeye for very long). Hate to say it, but If a 1 loss OSU doesn't make the playoff then it is the team's/coaches' fault not the playoff selection panels. There are still only 4 spots and people are going to be left outside looking in.
Wariboko could be that guy out of left field we have all been waiting for. Was he even on the radar a month ago? First mention on here I've seen. Birm have you been in contact with this young man before? How would you rate tOSUs chances? 247 doesn't have the Bucks very high on crystal balls.
Thanks woodshed, I had seen a post on here earlier saying he was a 3. Either way, you are right he was the best passer of the three. He also was the most exciting offensive player to watch in OSU history (IMO of course).
75% run and 25% pass sounds great to me... a solid running game built on ball control coupled with a unbreakable D has yielded many a championship. And Woody agrees:)
I'd bet on Gibson as a QB, ceiling would be another TP, Brax (we can only hope) or Troy. Lets not forget Troy was a three star and he worked his way to stardom. Gibson is a 5 and he seems like he is willing to put in the time (mentioning he loved the idea of redshirting and learning from Brax). Burrow will make for a healthy competition either way.
If Gibson puts tOSU back into the same place Brax and Terrelle established that would be awesome.
Rosenbuck, don't forget to mention that with their 3 starters out with injury they had to start a true freshman and a former walk on both last week and Thurs. Mariota was sacked 9 times against WSU and entered the UA game injured and not 100%, BUT I still give credit to RichRod. Arizona has no business beating Oregon in Autzen at night in a revenge game, quality win for UA.
JT has no Carlos Hyde and a porous OL.
Woodshed hate to tell you this but I have never been accused by other fans as being an OSU "homer". I just would rather play for Brax, no offense to JT, but I believe Brax is the better player by far. His passing improved a ton each year as did his progressions through reads, if he continues down that path I am very excited to see how he will do next year. JT has ALOT to prove still, but he will be a good backup next year.
If a recruit is deterred by the 3x BIG offensive player of the year returning they should look elsewhere. Its much more likely that his return brings tOSU better recruits.
Great school, tradition, education, nationally televised every game, great OL coach, history of recent OL and TEs placed into the NFL draft (Martin, Watt, Niklaus) and every year they play a top schedule. Honestly, why wouldn't an Ohio kid want to look at ND might be the better question? Too many tOSU fans like to slam ND but they are just as relevant as tOSU. They can claim playing in the title game more recently than we can too. Hopefully, Warriner (ND's old OL coach) sticks around another year so we have a better chance.
Titleist I think you are rooting for the wrong team. If you don't believe in treating recruits/kids correctly, maybe you should find another squad to cheer for. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only fan on this site who would encourage you to do so. There is more to life than winning championships/games, its sad that you don't know that.
ps.....sarcasm = different font, but hopefully you just didn't realize this.
If Michigan is so bad they are scaring away recruits, one can only hope most of these guys end up at PSU, MSU, Wiscy, and Nebraska or another BIG program. Hate to see talent head south or out of conference when there already is a dearth of programs that can recruit in the conference.
Thanks Buckeye Phi good to learn.
