Not sure about MSU, but UM already has 3 RB commits in 2017. Granted, 2 of them are 3* so they may get shown the door by Harbaugh down the stretch, but I don't see them offering and taking a 4th RB just to spite Urban
I read somewhere he was charged with illegal possession of a firearm in 2014 as well, which makes it almost certain he did not legally own the gun that he used to murder Will
Hope the bastard gets what he deserves
Fair enough. Didn't DV you, as I know sometimes people have info that others don't. Aside from the 1 game suspension this year though, I've never heard anything negative about Jalin Marshall off the field
Typo that you said OSU has 12 commits (rather than 13) or is there a player "committed" publicly that isn't actually in the class?
Guy who sits next to me at work is a Michigan fan. Both of us had the game on and he went nuts when that shot dropped
Jim Harbaugh telling Urban Meyer his recruiting tactics are a little "out there"
Drake telling another rapper they rap about feelings too much
Snoop Dogg telling me to lay off the ganja
The case of a kid who came in with the absolute wrong mentality and obviously football wasn't first for him
Are you saying this because he chose to enjoy the last semester of his senior year, play his senior season of basketball, spend his last 5 months in high school actually enjoying being a kid for possibly the last time in his life?
If you say a 17 year old who does that has "the wrong mentality" I don't know what to tell you. Nothing I read in that piece made me think Marshall had a bad attitude when he got here
I'd be willing to bet OSU would have the best Vegas odds to end the year number 1 in recruiting and it wouldn't be remotely close
Actually, with a class of 19 including the current 13 commits and adding Riep, Okudah, Grimes, Harries, Lindsay, and Wade, our class composite score would be 304.71.
Bama won last years recruiting championship with a 301.42, and all 6 players I mentioned are seriously considering or already have OSU in the lead. It's not inconceivable that a class of 20 takes the top spot
Because I was curious and I'm terribly bored at the end of the work day, I looked at all the game Kobe did not play in that Russell did. There have been 10 such games. D'Angelo's stats look something like this:
41% from the field
40.5% from three
In other words, nothing drastically different than his normal averages
Sitting arguably the most talented player on your team for long stretches and sometimes even entire 4th quarters is not "humbling his ass." It's downright stupid and a potential confidence killer. IMO, Russell would've been doing this much much sooner if Byron Scott didn't have his head up his ass the entire season. Russell has never been a player who's had his work ethic questioned, as far as I know.
Few things stand out:
I always thought Powell was more 6'3" or 6'4"
Josh Perry is a freak at 254 pounds, he WILL be on an opening day roster
Darron Lee is also shorter than I thought, but if he can carry the athleticism he played with at OSU at 235 pounds he will move way up draft boards
Both broad and verticals are measures of explosiveness. Powerful legs = longer/higher jump
Looks like I was off. Bucknuts reporting 132 inches which would be 11 feet. Insanity, and to think Thomas looked like he got even further...
Didn't see a number posted, but from the video it looks around 10-10.5 feet?
I'll concede that dropping .05 seconds in the 40 could happen with his added weight (still unlikely after 3 years in a college strength program) but adding 25 lbs of muscle, including a good bit in his legs, should have pushed his vertical jump up, not brought it down an inch. The opening inflates numbers to get more people to pay attention, that's my opinion at least
Arguably the second best running back in OSU history, I'd say he definitely qualifies as an all time great
Derrick Henry and Zeke must have gone to the same person to train
Although 37.7" vert and a 10'10" broad jump is absolutely insane for somebody of Henry's size
Jalin did fumble quite a bit early in the season, but if I recall correctly he never put the ball on the ground after his 2 fumble performance in week 5 against IU
Really? I've only seen one or two that still have him in the first
On 11W's most recent mock draft article, only 2/7 had Thomas going round one. The mock draft round up before that had 0/7 with Thomas
Lol I'm a scrawny 6'2" so I'm never the biggest guy, but I'm used to looking down at 98% of the people in the bar. I still remember the time I saw half the osu basketball roster out last year, never in my life have I felt so short
More yes, a ton more might be a reach. He'd be our top receiver, but people are underestimating the weapons we still have on the roster. Assuming Noah Brown is as good as advertised last spring, you'd still have to split touches between:
Obviously that's not on the same scale of sharing touches with Braxton, Thomas, and Zeke. But our offense is still full of fantastic athletes
