ND is said to be in a very good spot for Kraemer as well. Its early, but a strong possibility that 2 elite OL prospects in Ohio will be leaving the state to further their football careers.
Comment 28 Aug 2014

lol, Im not saying TG will be a WR...but honestly, if you list Gibson,Cager and Stump in order at the WR positon as far as talent goes, would TG not top that list?

I really like Cager too, I would want him in the class even if OSU did land Kirk and Van. Just seems for one reason or another OSU is having a bit of trouble closing the deal on a top WR prospect.

Comment 26 Aug 2014

Skill position recruiting this cycle has been a bit of a let down...obviously still time, but not alot of names being linked to OSU. Of the above mentioned only Cager could be considered likely to end up in this class. Would the staff be content with only Cager? Does bringing in a guy like Torrance Gibson give the Buckeyes enough of a viable option to not take another WR. (if he cant land the QB job).

Odds are WRs commiting  to this class will be catching balls from, Braxton (if he returns and they are good enough to get minutes early), JT , Then Collier/Gibson/Burrow..thats a decent group of QBs to look at. I know they may focus mainly on the QB in their class but in most ideal cases the QB is going to see the field a bit later then the WRs. Skill position recruiting in this class has been a bit of a bummer this far. If Van does indeed go elsewhere thats a couple misses on kids who were all but guaranteed in this class a few months ago...while other players are trending elsewhere and I really havent heard alot of new names pop up. Outside of EGW, id be curious if the staff now sees at least 2 quality WRs in this class. ( not counting Gibson as a WR either).

By most accounts UM will not have the shear numbers to finish quite that high...they will have a strong star average, but they have very limited spots remaining and a already small class.

Would be curious if the 11w staff sees at least 2 quality WRs in this class when its all said and done.
Comment 29 Jul 2014

It feels like skill position recruiting has hit a tiny bit of a speed bump thus far. Perhaps its because of all the young talent already in Columbus, maybe its just bad luck. OSU has been fortunate to land that "homerun hitter" type player the last few cycles (Wilson,Samuel). Kirk is obviously that guy this year but with him trending away, id be curious if there is anyone else that would fit that "homerun" label , that OSU has a legit shot at. Does OSU get a guy like that this class or turn its sights onto the 2016 kids?

For some reason i think this one is just a matter of time...

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Looks like he plans to announce next week....

Comment 26 May 2014

3 TEs doesnt sound like alot of depth to me but yes the concern isnt so much for this season but next when OSU loses Heuerman. I think in large part the fustration is because OSU is missing on the top targets at this position...lost both Brenneman and Gesicki to PSU, Hentges to Bama and looks as though Clark is heading elsewhere...those are  4 of OSUs top TE targets over the last few seasons. OSU will land a good TE this cycle no doubt, but odds are it wont be one of the guys they have on the top tier. Combine this with the fact that OSU recruiting has the momentum of an anvil right now and alot of the guys going off the board were at one time OSU "leans" or at least ones alot of insiders had predicted in this class. Bama's class will fill up faster now as spots become a premium while OSU targets can wait it out because, well...there is plenty of room ...

Per Steve Wiltfong- UM leads Buckeyes for Chris Clark. Clark says players on the UM team and hanging out w/ them put them #1 ahead of OSU. Both will get a visit again.

Comment 04 Apr 2014

Wiltfong tweeted that Burrow will be visiting OSU this weekend...
