TeRah Edwards was offered by PSU during his visit. 

IMO I think he'll be one of the DL in this class if he does come back to camp and earn the offer from LJ.

BG reporting that Clemson has informed Henry Gray that he is not a take at this point. Believes this coupled with his high interest in OSU should lead to a commitment to OSU in the near future.

LOL, a highly ranked 4-star not a take . . . to the point of many others, that is going to be one amazing recruiter class (on paper). 

HS

They took 6 corners in last years class, so they’re only looking to take one this year, which should be 5* Fred Davis from TCA in Jacksonville any minute now.

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

I am shocked lil Ven's only other offer is Nevada.  

I suppose he will have access to a lot of cool free stuff, but it would kill me to know I am only on the team bc of my daddy.  At the very least I would make daddy demand Swiney for another raise, and at some point give my spot to a deserving walk-on.

HS

Is Swinney's son on scholarship too?

Those who say they can and those who say they can't are both right. Which one are you?

HS

Anyone who's making $6M a year and puts his kid who'd be a walk-on anywhere on scholarship should be fired.

My top 3 for RB is Robinson, Milton, then Toafili. Used to be Sam Adams in that 3rd spot till I saw Toafili's tape.

Hmm, no Ransom?   He seemed to be all over OSU for a while.

HS
SpoonerBuck33's picture

Want to put him on there but didn't bc Paige just visited again and he's made quite a few visits. Not ruling out Ransom at all actually. But Paige is intriguing bc rangy 6-3 safeties with that big of a wingspan don't grow on trees. 

HS
NHBuckeye's picture

We could take both of them at Safety.  Cavazos is getting a shot at Corner, at least that is what I had read a while ago.

HS
Hanawi_'s picture

Pretty good bet as of now. But, Brooks, Davis, Mickens, etc. were all thought to be pretty good bets in the past. I do think they'll bring in 5 with 3 CBs, a safety and a safety that could potentially play in the box as the Bullet.

Alabama 14 commits, one 5-star, 10 4-stars and three 3-stars.

They also seem to be the leaders for Bresee and have crystal balls coming in for a couple other 5-stars. I’m not saying the sky is falling. Just saying their class is shaping up to be much stronger than their already-strong current list of commits.

STU10's picture

Funny...I commented on this board several months ago and got laughed at --- that for the foreseeable future in CFB -- the NC game will be 2 of 3 teams in it every year -- Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia....

Everyone else is lagging behind badly, including OSU. Comprehend this fellas -- Jordan Battle left a cornerback-less OSU 2019 class to go join Alabama's class that already had 3-4 other elite CB's lol -- if that doesn't sound the alarms, you guys are in a total fog!

I said the same thing two years ago. Clemson and Dabo are phenomenal recruiters. There is nothing stupid about what he said. Just because it’s not pro homer OSU doesn’t mean it’s stupid. Clemson is out recruiting everyone but Georgia and bama. OSU is still recruiting well. Not at Clemson’s level. I get star rankings ......... Clemson just got the train rolling 5-6 years ago. Now back that up with national championship, a coach who will pull his QBs, and being well represented in the NFL draft. Watch out. Also the weather better.

We had some 'different dudes' in 2015 and should have gone 'Back-To-Back' NC's in our sleep -- Urban's legacy for me is '50/50' -- 2014 was totally awesome for sure, BUT blowing it with an NFL roster in 2015 was totally atrocious...

I do not see nearly enough 'dudes' on the roster anytime soon to make another NC game...Urban's '16,'17, and '18 teams could not play with those teams...

So sayeth STU10...

Would have loved to hear your game outlook for osu vs. bama that year.....

HS

Maybe Urban's legacy was changing the Alabama program forever -- that '14 Alabama team will be the VERY LAST slow lumbering defense and terrible QB'd Bama team you will ever see during Saban's tenure --- that RE-LIT Saban's fire and he changed the type of athlete he recruits on defense and at the QB position thereafter....

logamaniac's picture

what makes him a troll would be the going into a thread dedicated to Osu recruiting and proceeding to hijack it to pat himself on the back about a pretty generic statement about the two other premier programs in college football.  then proceeding to triple and quadruple down when its pointed out how basic and generic his statements are.  

The troll aspect comes into it because once its pointed out that hey lets talk about OSU recruiting in the OSU recruiting thread he continues to push back calling people homers and insinuating the other posters are stupid because they don't see things from your point of view.  the truth is OSU has been one of the top 5 teams in aggregate recruiting classes since Urban showed up on campus, sometimes the players don't pan out and I believe more often they do.  That 2015 team he's referencing with an NFL roster lost a game in terrible weather to MSU and they got hammered for it.  However that loss was no worse than any of the losses the likes of any other top tier team that still made the CFP.  

In the years since I don't think anyone would argue that the coaching staff loyalties were detrimental to the potential of the kids we did recruit and the development of the team.  The big thing that Clemson has going for it?  Theres literally almost nil coaching turnover.  That doesn't happen at successful programs let alone those vying for national titles for half a decade or more.

Beantown_Buckeye's picture

But OSU had top recruiting classes in 2017 and 2018 which now will make up the core of the roster the next two seasons. But you think the Clemson 2020 recruiting class is going to affect who makes the title games in the 2019 and 2020 seasons? I don't think that is how it works.

Nobody is shocked Clemson is cleaning up on the trail. The fact that you think you're Nostradamus because they are, even though that doesn't directly correlate to or prove the point you are making, is comical. Keep patting yourself on the back for making predictions that haven't been fulfilled on a message board though. Nobody is better than you big guy! You did it!

How it is possible these threads get hijacked with debbie downers all the time. Yes, Clemson is recruiting at an insane level at the moment, that's what the reward for 2 of the last 3 NC brings. Produce on the field under Day and tOSU always recruits with the best of them. Aside from the concern at Clemson, fantastic to see McCord visiting, hopefully locking down McCord along with Harrison gets the 2021 class rocking. First time I've seen film on Toafilli, that kid can flat out play, great to see he's visiting with the family for a long weekend. Toafilli along with Milton or Robinson is a heck of a RB class.

I know you mean Henry Gray, but he won't be our best or first defensive recruit lmao. Lejond is committing Friday, and Darrion Henry probably not too long from now either. 

Also, you know Clemson's 5th highest recruit is a guy LJ said "lose some weight and come camp and then we'll talk" to right? People have different scheme fits/needs an say no to kids that most schools dream of landing (like Clemson only taking 1 DB + Venables kid). Clemson is admittedly killing it and will be a regular in the CFP. But pretending OSU is getting scraps is laughable and frankly embarrassing on your part. In terms of per player rankings OSU's current roster compares favorably to anyone in the country (by a quick calculation we're 2nd in per player rankings from 2017-20).

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Cincybuckeye's picture

Bummed to see Fred Davis commit to Clemson. Hopefully that'll be a typical Florida player recruitment and have some twists and turns in our favor. 

As an aside, I do want to give Wiltfong credit for his early CB for Davis that started the wave of Clemson predictions. I distinctly remember posters on here going to the nth degree to discredit him and his predictions. The guy's got good sources and his CBs should be taken as solid indicators of the direction players' recruitments are going. 

HS
Spartan13's picture

It's amazing when the complaint about the recruiting guys is "they change their mind where the kid is going" as if the kid doesn't change his mind all the time. Wiltfong knows what he is talking about and who he says is the favorite is the favorite at that time.

HS
Cincybuckeye's picture

Exactly. In the cases where Wiltfong flips his CBs a lot, it with players that are unsure and have different favorites throughout the process. He only flips them if he's hearing from his better sources that the kid is leaning one way or another. 

HS
WoullyBear's picture

Clemson usually hangs on to their guys pretty well...the no visit policy sets clear expectations and the kids know don't commit if you wanna visit other places still.

If Ann Arbor is a whore, what's Harbaugh for going back to her?

HS
Cincybuckeye's picture

Didn't know they have that policy. Definitely makes our odds of flipping Davis slim to none then. 

HS
huffdaddy's picture

I know there are some cons to that policy (you can keep guys from committing and maybe they wind up sliding away, kids are kids so pinning them down isn't always the right answer...). But I feel like it's a pretty good policy - not just for building a class but for cohesion. Once kids are in, there is the real peer pressure and camaraderie from the outset. Probably only about 4-6 schools in the country with the cache to do that, but we are one of them.

HS
SpoonerBuck33's picture

Lol shows how much you pay attention since I still copy and paste the links for the articles and summarize them. I've posted links and tweets all throughout these series for that matter. I don't really mind Steve all that much but I also don't think he's the best analyst there is either. Personally I'm partial and believe Givler and Brandon Huffman are better at predicting. I also don't believe you should change your CB a dozen times for a kid to help bump views for a site but deny that's their business model. I think that's a bs way to get money from people. I guess all the other guru's talk about how wrong they'll be in their posts too. I've never claimed to be an insider and I really don't know how many times I have to say that. 

Long story short if you're gonna talk shit at least be accurate man.

Spooner - and I think I speak for others who participate in earnest here - I appreciate all the intel, man.

HS
Beantown_Buckeye's picture

I'm not sure I buy that Wiltfong moves his CBs around to get clicks. I actually think he's competitive about this stuff and being the highest ranked analyst each year and wants to be right. My take continues to be that the CB movement will reflect how often some of these kids do a 90 degree or 180 degree turn in their recruitment.

Many people on this thread were ripping Wiltfong for being pro-Clemson and/or moving his CBs around for clicks and then he ends up being correct. So the guy can't win either way if thats how it's going to be looked at by some fanbases.

I read somewhere recently that Trayanum is now open to playing the Bullet position.  If that comes to be, do you think that Toafili would come on board as the 2nd RB if we are lucky enough to land one of Milton / Robinson?

Fields of Dreams

 

HS
SpoonerBuck33's picture

I did read that Trayanum is more open to playing defense than he was a few weeks or months ago. He even competed at safety during the Opening regional. He said he's more open to safety but I don't think he's a safety either. However if there's one kid who's unbelievably perfect for the bullet position it's DeaMonte. Well him and Kourt Williams were built for that position of its truly a tweener position. 

No idea but don't think they would be scared of we landed Lawrance. Have to believe our staff have told Milton and Bijon the deal about numbers and their position on our board. Both of those guys are almost physically ready to step in day 1 and get major PT.

Jarrett has been trending away from OSU for most of 2019 while the staff's relationship with Fleming has strengthened. There were rumors Jarrett was a silent commit and was going to commit in early 2019 but it never happened and he's been trending SEC and specifically Tennessee over the past couple months.

HS

Interesting. So you think if Toafili is in, then we can't pull Robinson or Milton? You might be right - but it makes for an interesting dilemma, especially if Toafili wants in.

Thoughts/opinions on Torrance Davis from Glenville? I'd think a number of guys will need to fall off the RB board before he'd get a serious look but he's an intriguing RB, or maybe LB, prospect to me.   

HS

It's been a few cycles since anyone at Glenville was worth taking a look at.  Seems like kids aren't transferring in like they used to? or with Ginn's health just aren't having the same pull to get talented kids into the program.

Davis is a physical banger at RB-if the staff wants that style of RB, they will probably just tell Trayanum that he is being recruited as a RB.......

HS
iowabuckeyes's picture

He's got a nice tape. Hudl profile says 4.5, which I assume is inflated but he shows good quickness and very nice hands. We haven't had a RB in the 6-3/220 range since Rod Smith. He seems similar to Dayton Dunbar's Tavion Thomas, who ended up at UC. Given the lack of TE talent in this class, could he be a TE option, maybe a bigger H-back ala Ruckert? He's rated higher than both Lachey and Daugstrup.

I think the odds are pretty high. However, I think the odds are low that we will hear about it. The way these recruits commit nowadays is that they notify the staff they are committed and then go back home, create a commitment video and post it on Twitter a week later.

One Saturday every other month, end of junior year before summer is the most popular time. Most people/recruits don't want to worry about it senior year or during the summer/football. This is the test where you will be most prepared since it's the end of junior year and most free since you won't have camps in the summer, and football in the fall. If you wait until after football your acceptance could be in jeopardy with limited attempts left.

A good read by Ari. Basically Paris didn't decommit, but he's not commited (or so it seems) per his head coach. When Paris asked him if he needed to decommit he told him no because Ohio State changed the nature of the verbal contract when Urban left, so he needs to explore his options.

HS

HS
BGSUBuckeye08's picture

I think I would have preferred him to just decommit rather than stay "committed" and then shove Ohio State's faces into the fact that he's taking other visits. Massively disrespectful, IMO. You always hear people saying commit to the school, not a coach. Well I guess this is a situation where he committed to the coach rather than the school. 

HS

Agreed. I would have much rather him handle it the way Lejond (who will be committing back to us in about 3 hrs) has than the shenanigans he’s pulling now.

Wow. I really disagree with the coach there. Maybe it's because he and Urban were really good friends, but Urban Meyer was not Ohio State football. 

The verbal contract is that Ohio State would provide a scholarship for Paris to play football for them. As far as I know, that has not changed.

"Saying" would be Paris Johnson saying he's committed to OSU, he's a Buckeye, Yada Yada Yada. "Doing" in this particular case would be visiting other school (some multiple times or at least talked about visiting again)

So it's more important and worrisome that his actions of visiting other schools outweigh what he's saying. He's doing his due diligence and I think he'll be a Buckeye in the end but it's alarming seeing the visits he's taking on his own dime and seeing stuff about them visiting again, which definitely shows they are interested in that school.

HS

Ohbucksclan20's picture

I believe he will be a buckeye, however in some aspects I wish he would have handled his recruitment like Harrison did. Take visits as a uncommitted player and if Ohio State is the right place then commit. Jmo fwiw.

Go Bucks!

HS
Beantown_Buckeye's picture

In this case he's actually said and done the same thing. He said he was going to be visiting a bunch of different schools and he's done that. He was quite vocal about exactly what he was going to do. 

Why didn't he decommit? Probably because he felt like it would take a lot for him to not end up a Buckeye and I still feel that's the case. There was no reason for him to decommit and upset the fanbase in the state he lives in if he still felt it was highly likely he would end up a Buckeye.

What does it matter anyway? Whether its handled in this manner or the way Cavazos handled it, the Buckeyes still have to convince him OSU is the place to be. So I really don't care if he decommitted or stayed committed but said he would visit other schools. I care if he ends up a Buckeye regardless.

Sounds to me like next time Johnson and his coach are on campus, Urban needs to find his way over to the WHAC and have a conversation with both of these two.

HS
ELJTSA76's picture

If they were really as close to Urban as they think they are, that conversation would have already happened. They aren’t friends. Urban is a retired coach, that’s it. He recruited players when that was his job. Now, that’s not his job. I’m sure he’d answer the phone if they called, but that’s on them. If they want to look around, they absolutely should. If they feel slighted, that’s also on them, and they really misunderstand what this process is about and what they should reasonably expect from a verbal commitment to any program.

Honestly this kid could not have handled this situation better. And I’m not just saying that because he committed to the good guys. As soon as Urban retired he didn’t play games was up front and honest with the staff that he would be looking around and he decommitted. He evaluated all of his options and confirmed Ohio State was still the best option. As soon as he knew, he recommitted and is already recruiting Julian Fleming and others to get back in this class.

Would come in as a Guard I assume?

WOnder if the staff plans on taking more than 6 OL

I just don't see any way that's possible. I don't even think it's a good idea.

No I completely agree that it wouldn’t make much sense to me either but all these offers still going out while we sit pretty with plenty of OL and only 2 spots left.

Just watched his junior film. Took all of 2 plays for me to be on board with this offer. Think he's a G but he moves pretty darn well and plays mean.

Also has offers from scUM, Sparty, Iowa (they know OL), Miiami, and Auburn. 

Edit: as usual I'm far from an expert on this stuff but watching his film I see Billy Price.

Appears to play with a bit of an attitude. Competition doesn't look great, but just destroys some of those kids.

Advanced run blocking skill set for an interior lineman.

Very well coached and he has great feet.

If his pass blocking is as good as his rush blocking. he is a definite keeper.

Looks terribly under rated

This kind of stuff makes me question whether or not they’ll take Atteberry.

I really like Atteberry but I don't think this Priebe kid has been properly evaluated. I would rank him above Reece and I hope he does some camps this year to increase his chances of moving up the rankings faster.

I've heard from a few reliable sources that they highly doubt LeRoux will end up in the class.  Take it for what it is . . . rumors and speculation  . . . but it would make sense with who they are still going after and the new offers

That makes sense based on the offers. But then you wonder why offer him?

If that's true it is a prime example of why Urban would wait so long to throw out ohio offers. You hate to have a instate kid commit to later be told he cant.

I saw something on Bucknuts that Leroux has put on a bunch of weight, and not good weight since they last saw him. He’s like 360 or higher now, and the staff had wanted him around 320, especially by the time he arrives to Columbus.

Just wanted to add on, not sure if the new offer has anything whatsoever to do with it, but figured it was relevant to add.

I saw that too...they thought he was closer to 320 when he committed but that wasn't the case.

HS

Let me first say I hope this isn't true, but if it is it sounds like leroux might have gotten a bit complacent since his commit and that is obviously not a good sign.

Go Bucks!

Priebe looks like a pretty athletic pulling guard. Ryan Day isn't hiding the fact that he wants really athletic OL. I think if Priebe works on his upper body strength in the next few years, he could be a mauler interior lineman.

He has Powerlifting in his Twitter profile so I don't think that will be a problem.

BG reported earlier in the week that if we want Henry Gray we will get him. BK reporting today that if he want Luke Hill he’s in this class. If the staff is holding out on these kids we must have some pretty high rated commits we are waiting on. If that’s the case our staff must feel really good about Kelee Ringo and Clark Philips. With last years class of not having any Cornerbacks, we need 4-5 corners this year. 

HS

Excellent!  I really want to see both Ringo and Philips in the class.  I would think that 4 would be the max though for one class.  I wonder how the staff views Gray vs. Hill?

BG’s comments on Henry Gray came during the Bucknuts 5 podcast yesterday if anyone cares to listen.

So since this comment is #300 and the spring game is today I am going to start the new part.
