Looks like its gonna be a Moretti/Munford swap at OT in this class....not sure how they compare as prospects, Moretti rated a bit higher but Munford lists as an exceptionally large human....would love to hear a little more about him as a player

Birm did a little write up on this last night, from the sounds of it, 1. They expect Baugh to leave after this season 2. In the current TE group there have been some injuries and some of the young guys have not met expectations 3. Falo is very good...

Birm goes on to say that some think this offer will change Falo's recruitment and give him some more to consider, and one source even went on to say that Falo wants to come to Ohio State....

I use the term loosely as the class will be great regardless, but the top 4 guys I would consider " Must Gets", from a positional stand point, from a talent stand point, and from the stand point that we have led in their recruitment for so long ( Akers aside) that not getting them would be a HUGE let down...adding any of the others would just be gravy...

I would advise Clark not too make any waves, not exactly a great sign of leadership ( and that's kinda important in a QB) but he is young so you'll have this. I get the "saltyness" of having another QB taken in what you assumed was your class,.....but Martell is his teammate now and stirring up drama isn't going to be good for anybody. Today is a great chance for this class to further bond, not start to divide.

and all is right in the world again.....

Comment 20 Jul 2016

Long way to go, lets see how things change after the pads are put on...

Comment 20 Jul 2016

That 1 I expected after  The Opening and all....I did not see Davis dropping, especially after he was named as 1 of the top OL at that event...Lindsey too was named to the All Offensive Team and still dropped....

Comment 20 Jul 2016

Not a great update overall for OSU commits or "heavy leans"...those commits you see fell, as did Lindsey, Grimes and Riep. ...and Simmons still cant make a jump into the top 247 :/     247 thinks there are 7 WRs better then Grimes ( I may be a bit bias, but that has got to be a stretch)

Comment 28 Jun 2016

I think we end up with Tufele or the kid from Ohio ( Mullins)  IF OSU wants another DT....I think perhaps Davis's commitment may have caused a reshuffling of sorts....tight numbers and I don't think OSU seen that 1 coming, but obviously you take a kid like that.

Comment 24 Jun 2016

Peppers is a lot of hype, and a great athlete but has literally done nothing to warrant much praise...45 tackles last season, 5.5 for loss...no INTs, no FFs, no FRs ( and for those that watched him, he is not great in coverage)

"But he plays offense".... 4 yards a carry....less than 80 yds receiving

The 1 area where he stood out was kickoff returns, where is average return was 4th in the BIG Ten, behind 2 other Wolverines and a NW Wildcat....

Hand him the Heisman.....

Comment 20 Jun 2016

This should say " JKP fighting an uphill battle to become a Buckeye"  ....247 has Okudah as the #1 S ( likely Buckeye), their #2 S is Brendan White and #3 is Isaiah Pryor. While it is probable that 1 of those guys turns LB (White), I don't think the majority of them do. Most recent reports are that Pryor looks great at S and will likely stay there. Then you add in the other DBs who themselves could see a move to S, and it's a loaded position group. Great player by all accounts, just isn't a "tier 1" DB right now for OSU it seems.

Comment 06 Jun 2016

IF OSU isn't the pick for Lindsey, whom does the staff look to fit that slot WR/Hybrid type role? Most of the names mentioned are all bigger outside guys, and just haven't heard many names that match Lindsey's skill set. Dobbins?

Comment 13 May 2016

I think Grimes fits that same mold. Both big, fast, NFL bodied type WRs..Grimes is slightly bigger and just as fast. I think both can make cases for the top WR and its hard to fault either 1. With Grimes I do like that he plays in FL at one of the elite programs in the nation and the competition that he goes against. DPJ blew people away at the Opening last year with his numbers ( Grimes couldn't make the trip.) I think if Trevon gets there this year you will see comparable numbers.

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Bucknuts has a story on this, and they  suggest it is the Nebraska WRs coach...they posted a few of his tweets as well...

Comment 15 Apr 2016

Was hoping to see a few more additions and less subtractions, but with a small group it will give the staff the ability to focus on a few key guys and spend more time with them.

Comment 29 Mar 2016

Fleeing a sinking ship it appears....wasnt long ago, there was a bit of optimism  for next year ( returning a young core and all)....that now appears to also be leaving.

Matta has to make the tourney next year....another miss and the program starts down a path that isnt always easy to recover from....

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Kinda surprised Thomas hasnt jumped into the 1st round...sort of an underwhelming WR class, but with the leagues pass heavy ways...I figured a guy like Thomas would be valued more . ( could be best WR, and is at least top 3)

Also Kiper is reallllly sleeping on Lee....everyone else likes him in the mid to top mid of the 1st....does Kiper really think he drops to the 2nd round?...with Jaylon Smith failing his medicals, the LB class lost arguably its top prize....

Comment 01 Mar 2016

I dont think Jones really lost anything...yet...anyways...he put up a very good 40 time for his size and I was very impressed with his vertical...throwing could have boosted his stock for sure, but not throwing didnt kill it either imo....now he gets more time to practice and throw to WRs he is comfortable with on his home turf...it may actually have been a smart move if he does well at his pro day ( which just as many scouts will be in attendance)

I think Thomas's stock may he risen a little too....great numbers physically ( hand size/arms)...strong bench and a 40 time I think that was expected...I also dont think the WRs that he is up against put up WOW numbers to move ahead of Thomas...and Treadwell didnt even compete ( one WR I think ive seen mentioned as going before Mike)...I think he has a legit shot as the first WR off the board....
