246 for a DT? Damn. If Rooks commits Mick is going to be working around the clock getting him up to the desired weight for college DTs. 246 lbs is linebacker weight range.

11 Strong.

Dremont was like 250 as a hs senior. This kid is only an incoming junior. Undersized but plenty of time to grow.

246 (if accurate) would be a pretty big middle linebacker.  for an adult.  he's a sophomore, so adding another 50 to his frame in two+ years for college isn't absurd.

It's amazing that the 2021 WR class might be just about as crazy as the 2020 class.  With Collins, Harrison, Styles, and Egbuka leading the way.  Good grief....!

"good grief"... indeed, NH !  This grief has many facets... amazing, just about crazy... and so froth... and, much more.  ;-{)}

Carnac senses a sense of building Buckeye momentum...

[needs to take a deep breath... maybe more...  er... many more... slowly] ...   ;-{)}

None of them have signed yet but it looks good on paper.

Coach Johnson is recruiting some excellent young talent. I hope that means he's in it for the long haul. Ohio doesn't have a mandatory retirement age for state employees, does it? 

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

John Glenn and George Voinovich were 78 and 74 years old, respectively, when they left the Senate. Former Governors Jim Rhodes and Ted Strickland were 74 and 68 when they went out of office.

LJ is just as important as any of those guys, so the Buckeyes are good!

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

perhaps one aspect of Coach Johnson's character value as a leader and in leading or following by example,

is...

he 'seizes' [carpe diem] the today, the now...

going 'all-in' daily...

===>for who among us knows, how long and in what measures our gifts and opportunities will keep on coming?

Who am I impersonating if i tell you... how long i will be here?  Who am i kidding?  Who am i deceiving...lying to, to his face?

But we know we can each choose to demonstrate, today.  None can choose tomorrow, today.  

So i freely give all 'my hope' up, for since it is 'mine', it is not only hope-less, it misleads others.

So... like i don't realize what I ought to do?  ;-{)}

We lead for Collins, so just need to maintain it and close the deal

Hmmm, excellent food for thought, Moneymike!

"just need to maintain..."  ...is what kind of participation in a competition?

====>

i must maintain

the truth of my claim

to all you behind staying the same

so i can win my game.

===who am I?

[a] the fantasy in my own mind,

[b] totally right in my own mind,

[c] humble, loyal, courteous, kind...   [nope...that's totally old...ness]

[d] the appropriate racer ...who just got run over by those greedy unlevel... competitors.   ;-{)}

===>  now i 'feel like' A, B, & C... but i'm scared i 'could potentially get'... D.  And I'd gladly bet your money that this... 'could... potentially... happen'!

hmmm... 

person who "lean heavily"

apply certain values

'too lightly'...

so likely to fall

from 'too slippery'.

Wondering if this CA & western recruiting activity are indicators of a 'strategic shift' in recruiting geography, to leverage competitiveness on the comparatively better merits there....  And, the recent, convicting de-merits that pierces images of celebrity and lifestyle envy.

Perhaps even as a more favorable ...climate change?

Irony a tad... and IMO excellent opportunties to produce a versatile, rather than home or regional or national... framework.

It's 'early' ...it's 'late' ...it's... TODAY!   ;-{)}

Let's see if coach day can lock down the state of Ohio, with bama now offering drennen, will that have any effect on Ohio State? Interested to find out if Day will lock em up within the border..
