Planting flags all over the country! What a great time to be a Buckeye! Can't even image what's going to happen after the draft! So mqany to choose from & so little room (as of now). The Future is not only Bright at tOSU but getting brighter & brighter. Though it seems TTUN has offered every recruit that breathes. Every article on any player that lists schools they offered. Looks like Hairball could have another disaster on his hands dropping kids 1 wk before NSD. GO BUCKS!!!!
Love to see Okudah, Lindsay, People-Jones join the class as well as Akers. Kelley-Powell & Holmes would round us out nicely. GO BUCKS!!!!
'17 is going to be one best ever @tOSU. W/everyone we may miss on Urb's talking to several better players or at minimum equal. The receiver room gonna scare the BIG & RB will also. What a great time to be a Buckeye! GO BUCKS!!!!
BrutusB, you are so right. The coaches don't give a damn about the services ratings just what they see in person & on film. A.J. Hawk & Little Animal were both 3*. They had fairly good careers at OSU! It also goes with how they fit our system. We all knew the '17 class was going to turn away some elite players. Plus if memory serves me right we have only 4 & 5* commits except for the #2 punter in the country! And Punters & kickers are only given 2* by most all services regardless of how much they impact a game. GO BUCKS!!!!! Will the season ever start?!
Hey, Puff Daddy. Probably not true but don't give Hairball any ideas. Do you realize how long it would take his kid to write the offers using crayons! Not to mention all the sleep overs for Hairball! GO BUCKS!!!
If Urb has Young above Kaindoh then let's go get him. Think everything w/J.K. will be fine, he's going to stick w/tOSU. Anyone know what's happening w/People-Jones? Still like to see 3 receivers in the class. Just don't know where all the attrition is coming from. Bishop Gorman becoming a pipeline to go w/Glenville, STA, & IMG w/a couple of kids from Cass to go w/the best in Ohio just amazing athletes. Going to be hard for TTUN to compete. Unless TTUN hires a ton of secretaries! GO BUCKS!!!
Griffith's advice was excellent & should pertain to all recruits thinking. Amazing how everyone likes our practice style. Though what would you expect from elite recruits... "Nah I like to be lazy". These are the kids that want to show what they can do! Can't be done w/o hard work but that's what they're use to. Can't wait for the season to start and for an epic '17 recruiting class. GO BUCKS!!!
If those 3 want in Urb would take them. Talent as deep as possible is great at all positions. Injuries, academics can sideline someone . Then you have little incidents here & there that can lead to suspensions. Plus some might out grow the position & become LBs or walk-out LBs. Schiano may only be here for 2 yrs. (his contract length) but it could be longer. While keeping a staff intact for several yrs. is great it also speaks well of the program when kids see the asst. coaches become head coaches at college playoff schools. Urb has built more depth at all positions than we've ever had. The future is bright! The proof is in the record 50-4 since Urb was the head man. GO BUCKS!!!
If they move the 2 DBs to LB then we take only 1. But what a choice especially at IMG where we already have 2 commits & a possible 1 or 2 more. That can only help down the road & for a LB this time. Florida's IMG STA has become feeder schools to go along w/those in the Cleveland area. Now to get Cass & MLK to get on board. The '17 class could have a lot of 5* players. If (when) we win the Natty the '18 & '19 classes will also be loaded. Urb is certainly getting & developing talent. Hope he stays 'til retirement (think he will stay 'til he's at least 65)! What load of talent we'll have for years to come.
Gut feeling that he sticks. Position of need, early playing time, and a school w/great tradition of putting kids into the NFL! What more cold he hope for?! Oh yeah and a chance to win National Championships! Go Bucks!!!
I too felt THE Ohio State was a give away. But that's my heart. Its gonna be close. Sure hope he picks the Good Guys. Ben hearing that Urb & staff haven't given up on Gary. Now compared to getting Gary, Lawrence is almost a gimme. Anything so I can sleep tonight. Have to check Nola.com to watch it live. Heard his high school coaches we're telling him tOSU. Not certain about the source but it might help, or at least got the "THE" because of it. Hope good thoughts. 'Til tomorrow or today depending on here ya live! GO BUCKS!!!
Lots of elite kids coming for all classes. Lets hear some Booms especially nice to hear them from Jackson, Lawrence, Hamlin, Warrior, & Dorn. Go Bucks!!! Beat Sparty. Show them that elite, balanced offense & fantasic Silver Bullets!!!
Sorry to hear of the passing of a family member of Okaduh. I & all of Buckeye Nations thoughts & prayers are w/you. Hope you get to campus soon.
Hope we can impress Hamlin & Fuller if they come. Prefer them to Burton but he would make a very good plan B. Wouldn't mind Warrior in the class. Same w/Dorn & Victor to go along w/Mack. Dexter Lawrence & Jackson are both coming & be great to impress both. We really could use both at DT. Now if we can getall of them in the class w/ an OL & a LB. Go Bucks!!! Smash Sparty!
Sorry that Rashad isn't coming but he was a long shot unless Les moves. I like both '18 Linemen & want to keep them from TTUN both of them unless they should prove tOSU unworthy. I don't know if we hear a boom this weekend but a solid win over MSU could go a long long way. We need at least 1 elite DT, Jackson would be my guess. Plus a couple of elite DBs preferably 1 over 6'. I think RB & WR will take care of themselves plus an elite LB & OL and we will be in great shape. BGo Backs!!! Run pass & smash Sparty in the mouth! The vanilla offense is out of the game plan. I look for Brax to throw Sat. or next week from the jet sweep!
Sibley is a monster. Perfect for tOSU RB. Really want to see Okudah commit to the good guys. 6'2" DBs w/speed are hard to find. He'd look good in S&G! Now to finish this yrs. class w/some very elite kids! Go Bucks!!! Let'sget ready to smash that other TTUN!
Bruce would be a great get as a 3rd WR to go along w/ Mack & Victor. I too prefer a 6'4" WR who can go up & get the ball especially in the red zone. If Bruce wants broadcast journalism just look at ESPN's staff. Lot of Buckeyes there. Maybe a couple of them could talk to him, if it isn't against NCAA rules. Warriner is only a sophmore give him 2 more yr. & he'll be Buckeye material. Just hope his Dad is still here! Go Bucks!!! Let's beat the Illini bad & get to the last 5 games still unbeaten!
McCloud could be another option if Juarez & Hayes both pick other schools. Jones would be a get only if we don't get a Lawrence & Jackson. All 3 fall thru our fingers then he might be plan B. Personally I'd take any 2 of the 3 to go w/Barrow. From what I've read it seems as at least 2 of the 3 decommits we based on academics not football. We need DTs & DBs this class & in '17 as well as WR. Mack & Victor would be enough this yr since we get Brown back next yr & 2 great TEs. The '17 class is loaded for elite WRs. Really would like 1 Lawrence, Jackson, Juarez, & Victor in this class. Wishful thinking but can't get-em w/o trying. Go Bucks!!! Let's get ready for the home stretch by kicking some Illini butt!
Gant looks good but my how he's gonna grow if 6'3" 185 as a sophomore. Read on the BH at Bucknuts that Dixon is having trouble w/his knees & career could be over. Not that I believe the BH. I'll believe it when Birm says it. 2 RBs is almost a must if you get into the play-offs regularly. Don't want to many hits on the star RB but need a 2nd great RB especially if/when they expand the playoffs adding 1 game is playing a regular NFL schedule. If the play-offs expand they need to raise the scholarships from 85 to 90. Go Bucks!!! We need a convincing win this week!
Glad to see Fuller is still interested, we really need DBs in all classes. Still would like Hamlin but looking like that ship has sailed. Great interest in Okudah, great chance to further impress him on his 2nd visit on his dime. Real interest on his part & would only make the '17 class stronger! Hayes could be an fit for Lee's position, but he'd have to beat out a couple of kids already here. Go Bucks!!! Come on J.T. leads us to a great victory!
Gibson had some issues, like quitting the team then realized his mistake & rejoined. Also had some academic issues. All of that is behind him. He'll redshirt this yr. & Beck wants him back in the QB room next yr. I don't know for certain but I believe once he strted to get use to WR he was in both rooms. Learning some of the QB stuff and keeping his arm in condition. Dontre maybe back this yr. still having foot issues but they appear to be clearing up. Go Bucks!!!
Thomas & Kelly-Powell would not be bad. Same goes for the LB, Cossou, but we would have to coach up the 3*. Which of course we always do under Urb. Mack going along for the grand tour can only help. What a great commit & leader he is! Gant probably won't get an offer for awhile since he's '18. It would be great to get Dotson in the fold. He has the size & skill set we need at TE. Hayes might be the solution if we lose out on Juarez. With so many of these kids wanting to commit early we should know something come mid-Dec. We should have 5-7 spots depending on the number we take (23-25) Go Bucks!!! J.T. give the Illini Hell!
Grimes is an absolute must for '17. It appears that People-Jones might be coming also. Both great additions to an already stellar class. Hayes or Juarez would be nice for '16. Build up the LB & DB for this yr & next yr classes. We are getting incredible depth at almost all positions. The future sure looks bright for tOSU for several yr. to come. The '17 class has so many great WR & if we can add Victor to go w/Mack we could be loaded. Urb just needs to get Jackson & possibly a Lawrence at DT to insure the depth at DT and build up an incredible D-Line w/ depth coming in '17. Go Bucks!!! Score early & often against Minn. & Silver Bullets contain Leidner's passing & running!
15 5* for 1 'Bama game? Must be just to see LSU vs 'Bama. I'd think some would rather play for the best coach in college football, Urb! They may get a huge group for the game & possibly some commits but we'll still have the better class come NSD. If you read Birm's picks for the final 5 recruits for tOSU you'd see some of the best coming our way. If we take 25 it could be bigger yet. Go Bucks!!! Cardale have the game of your life & Silver Bullets stuff-em!
I'd take either , but Birm's is the best by far especially if it could go to 6 & add Warrior. Wow Birm, do you really feel we'll get those 5 or do you have your S&G glasses on. Go Bucks!!! Get Birm's 5!!!!!!!
Too many kids getting hurt. Now Nick Bosa, hopefully he'll be set to go when he gets here. Hope they all get cleared medically. Non-clearance could really ruin this class. Bowden needs to come to tOSU, great athlete similar to Jalin Marshall. Dotson has got to get on board or we go to plan B for a TE. Of course, Plan B or C usually works out fantastic w/Urb & the staff. Go Bucks!!! Cardale we need your best game Sat. lets do it big!
