Um yeah those are for online shopping purposes only not for gameday. Those so called "Platinum" versions are available for every NFL team and every major NCAA team that Nike has a contract with so unless every single one of those teams plan on wearing them in a game this year then I highly doubt just 1 team would especially Ohio State. If there is a new uniform on the horizon it's obviously still a secret.
Essentially Berry is this years Sam Hubbard an absolute physical freak that the coaches will coach up and eventually figure out a position for and then watch out B1G.
I think the biggest impact on the class would be if we could pull Roundtree from GA and flip Garrett Taylor from ttun and our secondary overhaul would then be complete. We are solid at every other unit so everything from here on is just gravy especially Gibson who I think has already silently committed to Urban.
Hilliard is just doing the good brother, good son thing and Urban will do the legendary recruiter thing with his parents. I'm not worried... come signing day he is Scarlet & Grey! He is the leader of this class and way too close with the other recruits for a flip to happen.
Obviously I am not an expert on any of this but I think they grade guys based off film and character (not using recruiting websites) and if they have a group of guys at a position whom are grading out pretty even they have no problem doing that... it basically becomes a "first come first serve" kind of deal for those particular recruits. I could be wrong but I am guessing that they grade the guy they offered today to be on par with both Burrell and Wariboko and I think they wouldn't mind 2 more OL in this class so logically they would have more than just 2 targets at that spot as a contingency plan. A lot can happen with out of state kids between now and signing day.
I would expect Davis to jump ship to The U here pretty soon and then expect to add 6-7 more to the class... just my opinion.
Best guess would be Berry, Burrell, Gibson, Wariboko, and then who knows what could happen between now and signing day for the other 2-3 but personally I would love to see Roundtree join the other GA guys on our team.
Come on now Unky lol this isn't recommendations for SEC fans ;)
As an avid reader you guys are listing some really great books here!
Yep you are right... just more reason that we can only take 1 QB in '16 lol
I hope Birm is on the money with this one. That's the '16 QB I have wanted all along. I will take Guarantano all day every day and be extremely excited about it! Watch the tape over at Hudl and then tell me how he wouldn't be perfect for Urban. Just because he doesn't get the pub means nothing to me JTB didn't exactly get the pub either but he's on his way to setting Buckeye records before it's all said and done. Also we can't take more than one QB in '16 with a stable of Brax, Barrett, Burrow, (likely Gibson) and Clark in '17 so it makes no sense unless everybody still expects Gibson to end up at WR when all is said and done.
I really love Harris but Patrick is playing against superior competition... not bashing Kentucky HS football but putting up numbers like that in FL is ridiculous! Our staff calls him little Carlos so I think they will be paying a LOT of attention to him while he is visiting.
Don't be surprised if he ends up in tne CFL with Troy.
We will get Cager and if we get Kirk that would be a very welcome surprise but this is one position that I am not at all worried about. We are fine at WR and after JT lights it up this year throwing for 3,000+ yards and 35+ TD's we won't have to worry about the '16 WR class either as they will be lining up to get in.
CJ already has more experience than JT, we need JT to get as many snaps as possible especially before the VT game and only if he proves not up to the task should they put CJ in... just my opinion.
Ryan Timmons duh
Thanks for clearing up the redshirt but in my opinion he would be making a huge mistake going to NFL after all of these injuries I don't know if he would even get drafted until maybe the last round as a flyer for some team. If he came back and put in a full healthy season then his draft stock would increase significantly!
So I guess this means we are looking at a medical redshirt for Brax correct???? If JT or CJ prove their worth this season then next year could present a real interesting situation. The fact that the coaches are completely silent and will release a statement later it gives the feeling of bad news.
Never underestimate Texas quarterbacks who are a little undersized but really accurate (Drew Brees/Johnny Football) we will be fine. I believe in Urban and Herman. This is Ohio Freakin State it's always been next man up!!!!
Good stuff right there!... and hey I think we'd all take a double 8 this season! Heisman & Nat'l Championship!
I tend to agree Earle... this one just feels a bit different
Was there ever a Mark Pantoni BOOM!????????
I'm pretty sure he is in CBus until Sunday! Don't be surprised if there is one of those special "silent" verbals to Urbz before he leaves town. Just sayin!
Screw all of the star ranking obsessed DVers tonight. Congrats to Josh Moore! Love the Kid! I was hoping that he would be a Buckeye after that other "dope" dude chose that other school! He only started playing tight end last year and he is a very very good athlete for being his size. He has a wing span of a 7 footer. The kid beat cancer, he brought his Momma with him, he was all smiles the entire night and now he is a part of BuckeyeNation!!!
No but it's worth the 90 minute trip down the road to Chicago where there are plenty of Buckeye hangouts.
