From what I have heard is recruits love Ryan Day.
Successful people do what they have to, whether they feel like it or not
Offense recruits should be happy Day is not going anywhere, Defense recruits probably should have a few questions.
like "when is bill leaving" and "seriously is he gone yet"
Or even, can we help him pack?
Shandy is not beer
Really want Marcus Freeman but that isn't happening unless Schiano goes, and with Ash staying at Rutgers don't see that happening... but whatever happens back the Brinks' truck to LJ's door
Have you ever seen a fierce animal who you were sure wouldn't bite? Because I haven't.
We will inevitably lose some recruits as well as see some transfers. It happens to everyone whenever there is a coaching change. Nothing to be shocked about. Literally the way it works. We will be ok.
Keep an eye on the 2019 and 2020 recruiting threads that are already made on here..people have already been posting updates as they come out
I am 99.9% sure recruits knew of this news before the fans did. Either way, it is a commendable move by Urban to make this announcement before the December and February signing days.

I doubt that the recruits New about this. It would have been leaked much earlier. I would assume that the cat got out of the bag last week, thanks to Louisville’s coaching search.
Ohio, the greatest state in the Union!
Yeah. Not to disparage today's youth, but 0% chance this cat doesn't get out of the bag if they were telling recruits.
I think they were telling them, but it was like a day ago, not weeks ago. It sounded like they only told some of them it was possible. That was it.
It would have been leaked much earlier.
Rumors have been swirling since August.
Yeah from Mcunreliable.
he actually got one hot take right.
Garrett Wilson said at the beginning of the season during the turmoil the only way he’d reopen his recruitment was if Meyer AND Day left the program.
So i guess he can side in his letter now! Day is safe
He already tweeted out this morning he's 100% to THE Ohio State univ. Take that 100% with a grain of salt if you'd like but he seems to be all about us! Lots of people commending him on his commitment with OSU.

He already tweeted out this morning he's 100% to THE Ohio State univ.
100% is good, if he had said 110% it would be time to worry
Unfortunately, I believe he said 1000%.
I think 1000% is safe. :)
That's 10 times better!
Haters gonna hate and Bert is gonna Bert.
Speaking of recruits, Dabo reportedly told Carman that Urban was close to being done. We were all mad about it at the time but....
Anyone got his email? Kinda want to get the winning lotto numbers.
I think a lot has changed since then.
Dabo threw sh!t at the wall and it happened to stick.
Maybe Dabo was McMurphy's source. Kind of kidding but nothing would surprise me.

I think that was more to do with Meyer's age, if I understood right. That he was nearer the end than the beginning sort of thing.
And Dabo leaving is tied to Saban's age.
Still a PoS move to negative recruit like that, but what would you expect from a grown man who calls himself Dabo.
It is what it is... all's fair in love and recruiting.
Last year Urban had every intent to coach for the next 4 years. He believes the program's best years are ahead of it. Without the scandal making issues worst Urban coaches for another 2 years at least.
"Because I couldn't go for three"
I'm sure he says that about all the older coaches - saban probably gets talked about as well.
Carmen just wanted to go to Clemson. Can we move on?
We'll have something a bit later as the reactions keep coming in, but for the most part it seems like the reaction has been very positive. A lot seemed to expect it.
Thanks for the update. This is great news. I have no doubt Urban and staff will do the best possible job with the current recruits.
2020 QB Jack Miller tweeted he's 100% committed.
I'll be curious to hear from Harrison.
Strength equipment is expensive & guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free & will give you everything you need.
I think LJ, and his legacy, is the only thing that has kept them in the running anyway. So, assuming Day retains him, I don’t think this changes his decision to go to Ann Arbor.

Shaw, Wilson, Mathis, Crowley are all in
Stay golden, Ponyboy.
Nobody is all in until August in my opinion. All of our recruits are being bombarded right now by other coaches who will tell those recruits anything to get them to switch. I would expect some losses even from those who are affirming their commitments now.
I know that Harry Miller's family loved Urban. A little concerned about his status, but he's an offensive guy, so think he'll be solid.
He already said he's 100% committed.
“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”
I know 2020 QB Miller confirmed that, haven't seen it from 2019 OL Miller. Doesn't mean you're wrong, but it appears there is work to be done with OL Miller and family.
Correct I mixed up my Miller's..
I have a feeling the Day has an idea on the issues at hand. When he said that critical positions will remain, he didn't give that same blessing on the coaches. There will be changes made!!
When Shelley came to where the BOT were meeting in August, the decision was being made...in retrospect, IMHO. The strain on that coaching family, even if just migraines, or hemiplegic migraines, caused by the maggots, made the pain unbearable. Thank you journalist scum who participated in any way in that tsunami of twisted lies, purposefully omitted facts and unfettered attack on good people. Great...Great coaching job by UFM this year....maybe his BEST!!!!!!!
Well done. Also, automatic upvote anytime I see the word "unfettered" used so perfectly.
hemiplegic migraines, caused by the maggots
Maggots being the journalistic scum.
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
BigMarty's brain has been eaten by them apparently.
Seeing Shelley crying on the sidelines after the Michigan blowout may have been a sign as well. I believe some even pointed it out then but what I haven't seen mentioned is the health 'contract' Urban signed with his family before taking the Buckeye job. He had it framed hanging in his office and it had to be an important contributor to this decision. Let's hope Coach Meyer stays with athletic dept in some capacity, perhaps as the "Closer" in tuff recruiting instances ...the nickname he has certainly earned over the years. Go Bucks!!
FWIW, 2020 IMG safety Lejond Carvazos took all the OSU stuff down from his Twitter account and removed OSU commit from his bio
Seems like a knee jerk reaction. But plenty of time to let it all play out.
He didn’t remove the picture of him doing the OH with a pic of his family sept 23....or is that. Ricks family? But there are plenty of pics ...he is @lejondaryy
Dan Hope from 11W asked him if he was still committed and he said "No comment", so there's that
I don't begrudge any recruit for rethinking things after Urban's retirement.
With that said, if any player is going to the school for just the coach, then both OSU and the player are probably better off going their separate ways, no hard feelings. Playing football for OSU is about so much more than who is coaching you.
lejond just decommitted and reopened his recruitment. :\
