One thing to remember is that Haskins had silently committed to tOSU in Dec. Of course it could have been just to get Jones. Go Bucks!!!
TTUN picked Green the #1 RB a couple of yrs ago, he wanted to be a buckeye, we took some unknown named Elliott. Green is 3rd string at TTUN & Zeke's in the NFL! Hairball (or Hoke in this case) takes who ever they can get based mostly it seems on rankings not visually seeing the kid. Having 39 camps in June is a joke when he should be recruiting & developi9g the kids on campus even if he has limited allowable time. No way will they ever match Urb in recruiting. Urb is getting talent so deep in every group that it scares the hell out of the BIG & probably the SEC! Go Bucks!!!!
Remember that Yrb told J.T. to throw the to where it is suppose to be not to the route the receiver ran. So it was to show the receivers they weren't running the correct routes. Not an error on J.T. but on the receivers. Go Bucks!!!!
Agreed Seattle. It's going to be crazy. Too bad we can't add25! GO BUCKS!!!!
Getting time for a big big BOOM. Okudah, Go Bucks!!!. & Grimes.... OH MY!!!! GO BUCKS!!!!
Couldn't have said it better, CowCat. He & Dobbins what a duo! W/Webber just in front for a yr. GO BUCKS!!!!
I can't figure out why STA is letting Syracuse bring in 2 lower division schools. You'd think Syracuse & Stetson would be a big enough draw unless App. State said no.
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!
