Birm just CB'd Harris to Ohio State and Andrew was already there so all that's left is a Wiltfong CB. That would be 14 stars of wide receivers in this class for a team that already has 12 WR's. Begs the question of how many of our WR's come back next year and would Brown entertain (for NFL draft value purposes) moving to TE next season?
Was hoping we would add Ellison late in the game but apparently after Fickell went to watch him a few weeks ago the communication between him and the Buckeyes has stopped. Maybe it's nothing but it's possible we are done and take 2 RB's in the 2018 class.
Let the Huskers go back and let us finally take ND (need to fully join a Power 5) just as it should have been in the first place. The Big12 GOR can still be re-activated after it expires. I think that is just a weird scenario between them and their media partners. The question is how much Delaney would ask them to pay for leaving.
Tom Herman Joins Texas and then Texas will try to join the BIG or P12 and fail. The legal obstacles along with their arrogance and refusal to eliminate their longhorn TV network will get in the way much like Notre Dame and their NBC deal always does. The Big 12 is crumbling and until the playoffs expand to 6 or 8 teams it's highly likely that the B12 is the conference left out more often than not. Herman could be the savior of the entire conference not just Texas and bring it back to a position of strength.
If Charlie Strong doesn't survive this season it could impact both Wilson and Browning. However if Herman should replace him then well it could get real interesting. I really want Browning, Okudah and Bolden and whoever goes along with that will just be icing on the cake.
He's going to be like Shazier.... his raw talent will save him most of the time as a rookie but he will still make plenty of mistakes along the way. He has to stay healthy as well which has been a huge problem for Shazier. When healthy and up to speed though those 2 guys can wreck a game!
Not just Zeke but Michael Thomas is quietly creeping up on a potential 1,000 yard receiving season as a rookie. Could have 2 Buckeyes high on the ROY list.... now if Bosa can get healthy can't wait to see what he can do!
Lol I'm glad I got a reaction.... I couldn't help myself.... too easy. Look I'm not a baby boomer not even close and fact is I have always clashed WAY more with the boomers than I do the millenials. That being said the millenials (who I work with everyday) do complain about the stupidest shit and act like they are the most progressive people on earth when in fact most of them just talk but take no action. You millenials are the smartest generation just as the next generation will be smarter than you are.... the boomers know this but they don't know how to handle it or your technology and this creates a perception to them that you millenials are lazy and entitled. I don't share this view but I find this whole generational quarrel to be very entertaining even if it is almost irrelevant.....always guaranteed to get a reaction though!
A couple of things why do millenials cry every time they get called out? They immediately go IG or Tweet or make a Blog post on why the older generations are so wrong about them.... I mean they literally asked that their votes count more than the baby boomer votes because the baby boomers outnumber them by so much!!!!... but yet only around 20% of the millenials actually went and voted while 80% of them bitched and moaned about it. Just shut up and get to working your asses off like the rest of us!
Saban just got jilted.... said some stupid shit that was mostly hypocritical without a doubt... kinda like we all say stupid shit when we get jilted. He knows if Jalen gets hurt they are toast with Bateman at QB and he's upset. Saban should have shut his mouth and just wished the kid good luck.
Barnett on the other hand did the right thing and in the process might have changed the transfer game forever if he is able to exploit the loophole which allows him to go to juco and then be immediately eligible to play next year without having to sit out. I think it was a genius move and anything that weakens Bama's stranglehold on the college football world is fine with me. It's no coincidence that after Mensa visited Bama that their offense went in a different direction and that direction doesn't fit Blake. Good luck to the kid wherever he goes!
exactly.... it must be a Texas thing
There are fewer and fewer PRO style systems every year. Will the NFL be forced to adapt in the future or will we see more kids like Wentz getting drafted from lower division schools? Michigan, Stanford, Sparta, USC and Georgia seem to buck the trend but when Bama makes the transition maybe it's time to take notice.
Hurts btw looks a LOT like a younger JT with a slightly stronger arm but less accurate. His teammates gravitate to him as well and his deliberate running style looks eerily similar... he will be a force for them over the next 3 years.
Let's be careful not to get political or a very positive post about Malcolm and OSU might get MODified
I don't see any grey shirts outside of the kicker or maybe a 2-3 star off the radar in state player. Understand that Wade, Okudah and Bolden could all fit in this class IF things get interesting with our current secondary members declaring for the draft. Oh and who doesn't want to hear Gus Johnson proclaiming Buckeye Bubba Bolden!
They have 5 star Davis Mills so prob not happening and Clark strikes me as a kid who would like to play in front of his family. Have to be honest I think Pitt would be a great fit for Danny.
obviously Mecole Hardman or Sam Bruce
Good Luck Danny! I will be rooting for your success wherever you go! There was a big kid from Findlay, Ohio once who was called a project and OSU told him he could only play TE but he did ok. Go make it happen!
With all due respect he always included Ohio State in the exact same breath as ND thus his contract with Florida that had an OSU and ND clause. Urban isn't going anywhere unless it's the NFL period. This really is a non-story and I just wasted my time commenting on it.
Urban let's Fickell have a guy every year this year he may get 2 because his first one was a legacy and not really a sleeper in 4 star (Brendan White) so it will be interesting if Fick gets another one before all is said and done. This kid though won't be on the radar for OSU maybe he can hope for a MAC offer.
Danny Clark can play D1 football absolutely he can but he was and still is a project. The kid would 100% redshirt and then hold a clipboard for the next 3 or 4 years IF he comes to Columbus that's just the facts of the matter but he can def play D1 no doubt about it. Emory Jones shows flashes of Deshaun Watson and he is more physically talented than both Clark and Martell right now as a junior... Haskins might be better in terms of arm talent and his cerebral game than all of them!!!!!.... so I don't see why people are getting upset when it's pointed out that it could actually be better for Danny himself if he went elsewhere tattoo or not.
Every fan in the stadium would have been required to bring gloves with them.
Thanks for sharing OSU992 that looks incredible and hopefully I will be able to get there soon. The pics are great and from what I've heard they did it right.
I get what you are saying but I'm sorry there are just too many examples of smaller guys with elite talent and something you can't just measure beating on the inside of their chest for me to buy into your argument.
Completely agree Andrew I sincerely hope Kentucky sticks with the kid and that other schools keep their offers as committable.
Look I know Andrew knows more than I do but there is just no flipping way Antjuan Simmons' spot isn't a billion percent secure. You don't take a commitment from a high character kid like Antjuan who is a top 5 state up north player that goes to school right across the street from the big house (where Kerry Coombs has put in an immense amount of time building an entire network of support) just to say no thanks or take a greyshirt. This kid is a Buckeye even if we add another linebacker to the class.
Feel bad for the kid... had a shot at being Mr. Football. It think Morgan Ellison broke both legs and he came back strong so here is hoping that Koback can heal up fast and get back to full speed as well.
