He’s got a sick class so as some on this board would say “next”. 

HS

He could say Day is cheating and using bagmen but in his case that would be akin to opening a can of worms lol. I will give Dabo some credit, he doesn't respond to missing out on recruits in petty manners like MENSA Tom does.

That video was pretty damn mature.  It'd be hard not to root for Julian regardless of where he chose.

One of the best commitment videos I've seen. He came across as very confident and mature and not cocky and flashy. Good stuff, can't wait to see him in action.

LOL.   They so overpaid for Franklin!  He still has one of the worst winning % vs the AP top 25.

HS
Brah Zhole's picture

I'm not so sure they "overpaid" because he brought them out of the dark when there was seemingly no light.  There's value in that.  Is he the best coach?  No idea.  Average recruiter, and that hurts his on-field record against the best.  If he doesn't start keeping kids home he won't last.  Really needs to find a dynamic QB.

Pay Hartline more...he’ll be in high demand next year.

I haven’t paid much attention to recruiting but he looks like a big strong mismatch on the outside with nice breakaway speed.  Kind of reminds me of Michael Floyd.

Was noticing that too. Seems like we've REALLY hammered in the offensive side last year/this year. I am sure its just a momentary thing. Just feels weird to go from landed loaded defensive talent to loaded offensive talent.

Gotta tell you, a Clemson commit woulda been worse than a Penn State commit.  Not sure I could have stomached that.

This interview took place after his commitment. Obviously Birm was either there or he gave him the interview ahead of time.

HS

I think he picked Birm as the one to have exclusive rights. His actual announcement was done by Letterman's Row and Birm.

it is Dei in a Day when whosoever chooses to follow what he stands on, instead of the wide and exciting path of the rewards and imagings and imaginings and glories of men.

this... is no "happening".  Neither does it depend on what men feel say think do.  IDK what 'is...is' on my authority.

But... what i am sorely tempted to  immediately 'feel' about Julian Fleming's decision... i ought to lay aside NOW... and listen for what this 'young and inexperienced chooser' has to say about his choice.  For i hear by 'seeing in a mirror, dimly' that 'the child is the father of the man' ...but 'face to face' ... i received that He is our Father, and I am the child running to his Daddy...among fellow choosers.... each of us publicly expressing an Inner Sight.

Knarcisi's picture

I’m usually a guy that doesn’t get that excited about the top 5 star WRs. That WRs seem to me a dime a dozen and they are a product of the system. But after watching the national championship game last year, nothing taken from Lawrence, but those WRs were the difference. He put the ball anywhere in their area and they came up with big catch after catch. And not like I’m gonna turn my cheek to 5 star talent at WR.

Great interview w/Birm, seems like a really cool and focused young man....a beast of a player. Really glad to have him as a Buckeye!....the thing that bothered me about the interview was him talking about the negativity through social media he received, including stuff about "cotton fields" and shit like that....un-freaking real that a HS recruit would have to put up with BS like that from people that at one time wanted them on their team no less....anybody that says shit like that in any walk of life, about anyone is pure dirt, but to say it to a kid that just wants to make the best decision for them and their family is pure crap.

Gotta win our share of the big boys, and Day just did. Kudos to him and his staff, but not just for his recruiting efforts per se, but for rolling out a sweet, top-shelf offense that attracts top-shelf talent. 

Winning is the best recruiter, and winning pretty is better still. Interest begets more interest, so...

More to come!
