Winter is still here...

...but hopefully Booms are coming.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

The kid has been to Nebraska so many times that it's starting to feel like this is Scott Frost's to lose. 

People said the same thing about Vonn Bell and Alabama.

Thought that Bell was between us and Tennessee?

It was at the end but during his senior season, instead of making it up to OSU, he seemed to be in Tuscaloosa every weekend.

Those first 6 are phenomenal! I’m still hoping to get Milton though with Drennen and running back will be loaded!

Don’t get me wrong. I want all three.

This board is just flat loaded.   We’ve seen how this has played out in the past, so If we were to just land half of these guys we will have scored big time.

Amen to that! But we can't land 5 1/2 players now, can we?

I don't see Bryan Bresee's name on this list.....did I miss something? Has he committed elsewhere or did we lose interest?

Doesn't add up...

Neil Armstrong lied to me...

Bresee is on top of everyone’s board including Ohio State. Landing him would be epic. However, reality says Clemson is the big leader at this point. Hence the list that shows us in contention. Of course we know stranger things can happen, and they just might.

Left him off since Ohio State is running fourth at best right now.

Every year when a position group is hot, like WR this year. Over recruit that position some, taking advantage of the the season they had,  the press they're getting and their draft stock.

Can't argue with anyone on the board, but I sure wish there were some more offensive linemen on it. Hopefully we can pull Corcoran and Justin Rodgers.

I haven't heard anything on SAFs Jalen Berger and RJ Mickens in forever. It will be interesting to see where they are standing when updates come out. Also, I think Clark Phillips should be on the board in place of Henry Gray.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

Two big time players there for sure.

If my son was a five star recruit, I would strongly encourage him to not consider his girlfriend in the equation. Noting is less relevant in a recruit's choice than a girlfriend. There will be a hundred more girls... do not allow the current one to influence this incredibly important, life-altering decision.

Right. Just like Branden Bowen did...

Damn, my buddy used to live at that place and I would go to his pool every few weeks in the summer. I never saw her there though. What a bummer.

Lol at "hundreds" more..  hopefully it's far less than that for his own sanity's sake.

But yeah I'd tell him there's a 97% chance their relationship won't last another one-two years, and he'll really wish he was playing for titles instead of 4th place in the big ten at that point.

A top CB and RB and a high 4 star OT are crucial for 2020.....given the thin depth charts in those positions....they gotta nail those positions and then sign Henry because he's a Top 100 guy from Ohio, and get Mehkail Sherman just because he's ranked so dang high.

As noted above, loaded list. I'd move Robinson and Cavazos up as I think they'll move more quickly than the others. 

HS

Not sold on B Robinson. He might go down if someone ever touched him. /s> Can't tell by that tape, though.

Looks like Dobbins with all those hop cuts.

Wait. What? Is that a joke?

If you look closely, you can see my nephew in the Bijan Robinson tape......he's a freshman bass drummer in the Salpointe marching band. I'm trying to leverage my close connections to get a commitment from Bijan.

You should concentrate your efforts on getting your nephew in TBDBITL.

Gotta stay positive about Rakim Jarrett Andrew.  In the end, he’ll commit to the good guys

3 great Cornerback and 3 great WR targets shown above. We should target them all and get the best available talent. 2 CB and 2 more WR would be great. Make it happen Buckeyes. Top 3 class is something we can do.

HS

Ohio State is definitely targeting all the guys listed above plus probably 5 times this amount

I'd like to see more o-line guys on this list though.

This ^^^^^!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Think Reece Atteberry can play just about anywhere on the line except LT. Ohio State will get him if they want him. Right now I'm guessing they do. Just didn't really have room for him given some of the bigger names.

NHBuckeye's picture

That’s a great problem to have.  Haha.  No room on the board for this stud O-lineman because there are bigger studs to list first.  Love it!

According to 247Sports, Bijan Robinson is the nephew of Paul Robinson, who, as some on here may well remember, was a fine running back with the Cincinnati Bengals. Pretty good bloodline there.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

The Cactus Comet...........................interesting..............Robinson played for the Wildcats in the late 60s, so I'm assuming the family has some roots in Arizona, not recent move ins from Ohio or LA or Orlando or wherever...................
