The thing is Harrison is so versatile and there are already a bunch of Bruces on the team. Yes he is talented but he is still a short WR. 

The only thing I can say is trust Urban it's worked well so far. An who knows maybe they find a way to take both.

Fwiw that was just part o a long conversation I was having. I wasn't trying to ruin anyone's thunder. I was just pointing out what I believed is most likely scenario based on all the info I have.

As all of you know I am wrong a lot but this feels like what is happening base on all the Intel.

I respect all those guys. They do great work. They should have never called this thing a Crystal Ball though. Predicting the future is what a Crystal Ball is all about. Steve will change his CBs the day of an announcement once he gets insider info. That is not predicting that is knowing lol. Bill Kurelik only puts in a CB when the player himself tells him where he is going. That is how you get 28/30 correct lol.

Absolutely 247sports will let just about anyone have a Crystal Ball who has a blog of any size. You can see it in the picks some people make myself included.

I pick OSU a lot because thats what I cover. I also pick against UM a lot because it angers their fan base. Right or wrong I dont take the CB thing to seriously.

In general most people are really nice to me. There is a pretty sizable group of people out there though who can't stand me. Ironically it is about 65% OSU fans and 30% Michigan fans and 5% my family :)...

For whatever reason people take this Crystal Ball seriously as if 99% of picks arent just educated guesses. People look at my % and mock me. It is cool. I dont get it when I look at all the other "experts" and see people with worse %s or just as bad. But to each their own. I am always willing to discuss my predictions if people ask me I will tell them.I dare anyone to find someone who responds more than me to every person who tweets at them. I pride myself on being nice and approachable.

I am the first person to tell you he Crystal Ball is a faulty scam. I choose to use mine differently than most. I rarely ever change my prediction even when I know I am going to be wrong. You will never see a last minute flip just to be right. You get rewarded more points for long time predictions. You dont lose anything for being wrong. 

I am but a small potato for a teeny tiny site. I build my personal brand via Twitter and Crystal Balls. Some picks are made specifically for building that brand. Some picks are done by the recruits themselves. 

This particular pick was done based on the info I posted above. There is a 50/50 shot I am right or wrong. I do not by any means consider myself an expert. I make zero $ doing what I do. This is not my job, If anything it is a detriment to me as most people hate me and my picks lol. I am what I am.

If he commits it will have no bearing on Fuller... OSU wants 2 more DBs and will take 3 if Fuller and Hamlin both want in with Evans. Odds are Hamlin is odd man out IMO

Comment 06 Jan 2016

I haven't talked to Chris since he was offered but I have many times before and know this offer is the one he always wanted. UM is tight on schollies and he may be one they feel they can lose in order to land a guy they like better. Evans has used the words Dream School about OSU even after he was committed to UM.

Comment 06 Jan 2016

I do love it here on the 11W forums. You guys are active and friendly and when you call me names and hate on me you do it when i am not looking I assume lol

Comment 06 Jan 2016

Side note Urban Meyer just followed him on Twitter as well. 

OSU has DB needs. OSU is his dream school. He will official to OSU likely last weekend before NSD. UM wants him as a RB and he knows Walker will be above him on their board. 

I will let you all read the tea Buckeye Leaves and reach your own conclusion.

Comment 06 Jan 2016

He will apply for it but that doesnt happen until after next season because it is a medical RS has to wait until his last season ends. He will be granted one if he applies. I assume he will apply. But you never know.

Comment 06 Jan 2016

Cam Burrows will likely get a RS for this year so he will be a RS JR next season because he didn't RS as a Freshman.

Comment 06 Jan 2016

Ohio State will have 4 SRs on next years team. They are already way overcommitted and it doesnt really matter. OSU will be at 85 by Aug. 1, 2017 one way or another. Going to need quite a lot of attrition to get to 20 in 2017.

First rule of thumb to successfully enjoying life... only be friends with people who are exactly like you and love OSU as much as you do. 

If that doesn't work make sure you have naked pictures of them you will expose if they step out of line about OSU.

From the sound of it from the guy who saw it and reported to me it was one of those you never want to see and if you do you cant stop seeing it.
