The LSU folks are saying Elias Ricks' family is planning on relocating to Baton Rouge. Any truth to that or is that just rumor. If it is true then Ricks is simply playing the game and getting free trips.

Ricks addressed this on Instagram tonight, saying those rumors are false and that he lives in California.

Ransom AND Ricks would be awesome.  Looks like we will have to wait awhile before we find out about Ricks, though.  Hope it is worth the wait.

Good things come to those who wait and, in truth, we have nothing to lose. 

But how hysterical would it be if we snaked both Ricks and Jarrett from LSU?

Feel like Mookie is more likely than Jarrett but that would be awesome. That LSU investigation news in buck shots was interesting...

Just consider it a fair trade for Joe Burrow.

What's up w the coverage this year? Highlight videos from an iPhone in the bleeds.. awesome

That was the best angle the media was allowed to have. We were given about a 40-yard square along the sideline we could use that was quickly reduced to about 10 yards once the 7-on-7 games took just one half of the field. Then, the players that were resting and the coaches were standing directly in front of us. It was tough enough to get photos. And I was the only Eleven Warriors representative. High-quality videos, photos and written coverage take multiple-person teams. So video was the phase that was sacrificed a bit.

See this I don’t understand. What am I missing here Taylor? I would think that The Opening would be all about the media being closer and able to watch. This is an event to evaluate recruits no? And it’s a dead period, so it’s not like coaches can be down their scouting or helping them coach. If it’s not for coaches, I then assume it’s specifically for recruiting evaluations for websites like this. I feel like The Opening is really dropping the ball in this regard. Like I said, I might be ignorant and missing something, but very strange. Thanks for the information Taylor, especially with the limited opportunity you had.

Your guess is about as good as mine. They have their own freelance media folks there that are hired to take photos and videos that The Opening brands as its own, so they don't necessarily need the media to be there, I suppose. That media was allowed access all over the field. But yes, there was a more concerted effort to keep space between the recruits and media this year, I noticed from previous years' media schedules. It all worked out, though, so I can't complain much on my end.

Toby, the DV is from me. You get what you pay for. This is a free site. There's one dude down there covering the entire event. Your comment is unfair and sucks.

It's all good, was an honest question.. maybe I missed most the coverage from other outlets. Just seems it's usually a big event and all I caught this year was clips like this on Twitter.. between this and articles that clearly aren't proofread I was disappointed, sorry for basic expectations

Urb needs to be closing this guy. He is ready to flip. 

If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.

Not sure if Coach Meyer can recruit Ricks since he is not the coach any more.

Pretty funny ttun top rated recruit overall, would most likely be the 5th rated WR in our class this cycle alone... assuming we land Mookie and JS-N gets his much deserved bump in the rankings. And they thought our recruiting was gonna fall off ... l o l

I think Mookie made the decision to play for a winner and not be a ditch digger on Saturdays. Selfeshly, I also really want to say Mookie all the time. What a name! Love it. Go bucks!

Big Sox fan and always enjoy getting to talk about “Mook.” I’m very much looking forward to making that two fold should the Buckeyes get Cooper.

Taylor, thanks for the outstanding coverage of the opening finals and keeping us Buckeye fans informed.  It is much appreciated!

This group of recruits looks to be something really special, can't wait to see them on the field.

I too am wondering IF Urban could contact ER legally and assure him about Coach Day and that all is well in Buckeye land. Will the the 2020 class be the best ever?  Very possibly.    GO BUCKS!
