DT recruiting is puzzling.... only 2-3 targets in Gary, Jackson and to a lesser extent Lawrence..but OSU seems to be well behind in the recruitment of all 3...not sure what gives to be honest... Position of need, great coaching, Championship program.

Comment 25 Jun 2015

The 2017 class at WR looks unreal for Ohio State...They could have 3 very good WRs wrapped up by this summer. Some tough calls will need to be made and id guess Nixon is one of those.  Judson/Greene/Grimes then add one of the Ohio WRs ( Davis or Richardson)..thats a hard WR class to top.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

I dont think its as much about not being impressed as not really getting those "tier 1" DTs that the staff pinpoints as the top choices...Both the DTs we took last season we snagged later in the year, and were , most likely guys the staff knew they could wait on and still get commitments out of if offered late. I think its more about missing on the DTs that we recruit all year and are the obvious plan A guys.  This doesnt mean Hamilton and Landers arent good prospects and cant be future All Americans...but they also werent the main focus of the DT recruiting for most of the year.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

Good topic and one I am also curious about. Of what seem to be the 3 main DT targets in this class, it appears OSU trails for all 3. I know it doesnt help that there arent any " elite" DT prospects in Ohio. OSU does appear to be in a good position for Jerron Cage next year, whom is a highly rated DT, but that class is a long way off and will be another ND/OSU battle. Cam Spence in another 2017 DT that is high on Ohio State.  Is there any way that the staff only takes 1 DT in this class and hopes to take 3-4 next year? I wouldnt call it worry persay, as it always seems to work out in the end.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Jones and Bush Jr they probably land...Gary they have a good shot at but I wouldnt pencil him in yet...and I dont think they get Kelly. UM has always recruited well, that wont suddenly change....on the bright side, Meyer recruits and coaches among the elite...UM has a very nice OL class so far, but ill take a Johnson Sr + a Bosa every time...

Comment 10 Jun 2015

I think he is one of those " tough choices" the staff had to make. From what ive heard/read, he just isnt a take at this point, which will most likely push him elsewhere ( Michigan) . Seems like the staff wont take another WR not named Corley or Craig-Myers right now...Small WR class this year, paired with what looks to be a strong WR class in 17, I think gives OSU some room to be picky and wait for their guy and afford the risks that come with that.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

Its a recruiting board, talent is and should be discussed...kids are ranked by multiple sites for everyone too see. I would also assume a player that OSU would/could take wouldnt be void of talent. Plenty of times its been said Player A is priority over player B, etc etc.  Yes , I am curious as to opinion on the remaining OTs on the board and what kind of players they might be in the grand scheme of things.  You also dont need to say a kid is a major step down to get the point across. Could say, " He's lower on OSU's board" or " A lot would have to happen for him to get taken" or even the " He's more of a project"...

Comment 20 Apr 2015

No, but given the circumstances ( NC last season, Ohio kids,etc) losing both is a tough pill to swallow. OSU had a GREAT weekend. Meyer and staff pulled in some fantastic prospects, but Id bet even Meyer is focused on the 1 battle he lost, how he can prevent it in the future and whom he can find to replace Liam on the board...

Comment 19 Apr 2015
Turn up the heat on Bredseon, not in state but could be an upgrade. Will be amusing when Warriner getsa HC job and Meyer hires NDs OL coach.
Comment 16 Apr 2015

While anything can happen in recruiting, most of the insiders whom know Liam seem to agree that he isnt the type of kid to waffle on a commitment..sounds like one that will honor his verbal. Hopefully he decides on OSU, if not, I would consider this Meyer's biggest recruiting loss really...In State kid, whom had a early offer and one the coaches persued very heavily. ( not to mention all the hardware won) Wanna sign the top class, ya cant let these ones get away.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

Agree on Ferns, hopefully he is in, but if not...It would be nice to land at least 1 legit LB since it'll be a small group (1-2).

Comment 13 Apr 2015

All possible, though I think OSU is fighting an uphill battle for Corley,Eichenberg and Mitchell.  I think Wohlabaugh might be a realistic option there if ND snags Liam.

Comment 13 Apr 2015

1. Which class in your opinion will finish higher nationally, 2016 or 2017

2. QB croot'n, how likely is Wallace for OSU? soon? If not Wallace whom are some prospects w/ legit OSU interest and talent to earn an offer.

3. Over/Under new commitments for OSU this weekend

4. LB- Ferns or bust?

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Looks n sounds like there is something too this....hopefully, Meyer and staff can set Walker's mind at ease. Losing a player of his caliber would certainly sting. Going into the Spring Game and coming off the National Title, I was hoping to have a little more positive momentum. Perhaps Birm will give his take in the Hurry Up.

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Tom suggested that Kareem wasnt aware that Hill was already in the class, and only found out through twitter. (after he committed)

Comment 08 Apr 2015

So the focus moves to Wallace....whats the "inside" intell there...good chance? great chance? are other QB offers going to start going out?

Comment 08 Apr 2015

Though its far from an exact science, the TN CBs on 247 for Guarantano have continued, and coming off an OSU visit that seems very telling. fwiw I think this class ends up w/ a plan "c" type QB. One that isnt really on the radar now and isnt really among the top tier of QBs in the nation. 3* project of sorts....Would love to be wrong though and see Wallace commit to OSU.
