On a side note, this caused a reminder that I’m the father of two girls because my first thought when seeing the date of his announcement was, “oh wow, the same day as the Descendants 3 premiere.” #fatherhood

August 2 is 8/2. 

8 - 2 is 6. 

August is a synonym for “first” 

8 / 2 is 4. 

6. 1. 4.  The signs are clear as can be people. He’s going to area code 416 and playing for the Toronto Argonauts.

Robinson is the apple of my eye in this years cycle at the RB position. I hope we can close out and get him in the mix if so without Urban this is a hell of haul from #DayWay and Co.

A touch of greatness how cool would that be ..

When I first glanced the headline...nearly fell out of my chair. Only a tease...I thought he pulled the trigger.

This is going to be huge if when he picks the good guys.

Now I’m wondering who actually holds that title. Maybe one of the USC teams?

This is the recruit I want the most.

The kid from Cali is big, and the kid from Florida is fast, but this kid from Arizona is big AND fast.

Apparently, 9 crystal balls have been cast for Bijan to Ohio State today alone. And I've heard that if he committed in the summer vs waiting for sometime in the fall that it was a good sign for the good guys.

Bijan was always my "choice" when it came to top RBs in this class. Milton would have been fine, but Robinson I feel is the more complete package.

Wonder what the skunkweasels will say after Bijan calls Columbus home. According to the *ichigan forums, our class is "only good because of our 4 WR"... Whatever the hell that even means.

"our class is "only good because of our 4 WR""

That should scare TTUN fans to death. Last year we kicked their collective ***es with our 4 WRs...

HS
gobucks1966's picture

I understand what they mean about that comment. Some years ago a team recruited 2 5 star qbs that bumped their numbers up. We all know only one qb plays at a time. As talented as our wr's are not all four will be on the field at the same time and only one can catch a pass. However they are over looking our o line plums and others in this class. It is sour grapes talking and ask them would they trade classes.

HS
Dasniksder's picture

2 QB’s is different than 4 WR’s. All four will be on the field at the same time and the defense won’t be able to double team or give safety help to all of them. Their talent compliments each other perfectly. See the UM game last year for reference.

The staff is addressing the areas of need with elite talent. You have to be excited about the potential of this class.

HS
Bucks19's picture

But you need two. Remember what happened to that JT guy?

HS
PsyBuck's picture

3 things...

Having multiple WR's on the field that could be THE guy on almost every team in the country is going to wreak havoc on even the deepest and best coached defenses. You cannot double team ANYONE with that amount of skill on the field.

Second. If you took ALL 4 WR out of this class, we'd still have the #8 class in the country, and are looking good to finish off with a flurry of high 4* talent, most of which is on the defensive side of the ball. So to say these WR are the only good thing about this class is nonsense.

And finally. If *ichigan fans are gonna talk crap about our recruiting class, they better at least offer a reason as to why theirs is better. And last i checked, they have zero 5* players, and only one player inside the top 100 nationally. And ironically, he's a WR! As it stands, we currently have EIGHT commits better than their best commit, with that number looking to potentially end up at 11 if we get bijan, Ransom, and a possible Rick's flip.

This class is going to go down as one of the best ever if we finish with the guys that are already leaning our way.

It's good to be a Buckeye right now.

To a point, most of them are of the mind that OSU leads now or at least more of them. They are gradually shifting, just takes a bit longer to get there. 

It is still possible he goes to Texas, but more unlikely as time goes by.

We may reach max 25 recruits before the season starts or close to it. Wouldn't that be something.

analyticalguy's picture

I think Day will hold back a couple scholarships in order to make a play for some top players who expect to make late decisions, or perhaps a flip or two. I don't care - so long as we're harvesting the cream of the crop, I don't care when it happens.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

If he can get kids they want he won't hold back anything. Why would you do that and chance loosing out waiting for others? Just like a great coach once mentioned there is not much difference between great and elite and that goes in players too. That remark came from the great but not elite Benjiman James Franklin.  Players that didn't study and went to meetings with their cell phones on. Well coach you recruited them and you didn't stop the cell phones before you lost. Elite coach's would of nipped that from the get go Pumpkin Head.

Bijan.and Ricks. Both want to win multiple championships and play on Sundays. Let's win convincingly together. 2 5 stars would be a strong finish.
Texas isn't ready to beat Oklahoma and LSU isn't ready to beat Alabama. Columbus is the best choice.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

I enjoy the Franklin MF as one of the better ones. Wish I knew how to put that on here I would search for some classics we may have missed.

Denny

HS
gobucks1966's picture

If we pull Robinson my wish list would be Ricks Williams Knighten and Ranson. Some how I think we get a Ohio qb and a lineman from N.Carolina in this class.

Denny

HS
Bucks19's picture

There aren’t any Ohio QB’s worthy of using a scholarship on unless one absolutely blows up 

HS
gobucks1966's picture

That's my point if one blows up he would be much easier to get than a kid from some place else. Not to get into it but another reason why we need to go national for recruiting. It seems many positions this year was thin. No db's or wr's mentioned on the board at all.

Alabama not in that conversation?

HS

I don't know of a single Alabama RB that has excelled in the NFL in the last 25 years. Ingram is probably their best and he's at best a utility back.

HS
milhouse4588's picture

Mark Ingram was only a "utility back" on NO because they happened to have a ridiculous RB already on the field. Ingram was actually more productive when both were healthy. He's a stud.

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.

Shaun Alexander?  Derrick Henry is streaky but a freak with HIPO.  Josh Jacobs this year.  Regardless of success in the NFL, Bama is churning out talent at the collegiate level.  They seem to always have a 1/2 freak combo.  Not a Bama fanboy, but they’re definitely in the convo.

HS

I want to agree with you Moo strength, but like Milhouse and BigCat pointed out, they’ve had some solid rb production up there with Ohio State and uga. Gotta keep it real...

Crystal Ball shifting towards Ohio St and I'm pumped. 77% Ohio St right now with Texas at 15%. I am always skeptical on how "in" a player is until there is a CB's by the big boys for them.

CB’s are good barometer but not the be all end all. Shit happens.

Which is exactly why you have to wait for some of the big boys to start putting them in for the good guys.

Live in Tucson and have seen Robinson play. Posted about him on the 11W boards when he was a sophomore as it was very clear he was a special RB. He has speed and strength but the things that are really impressive to a number of Buckeye fans here are his vision, his elusiveness, his balance and his ability to break tackles. He has been my top choice for RB for 2020 for the last 2 years.

Where is he going  and if he does split getting a elite rb coach here should be easy. Some on here will say Archie George or Beanie Wells.

Rumors have been going around for a few seasons now. Last year Alford and Stud were rumored to be in the running for the BG job. You can find old articles on 11W about it. I would link it, but 11 W’s searching tool is too difficult to use - I never can find the results I’m looking for.

The 2020 class is going great but... it's almost full and there are a number of very highly ranked guys that seem to be leaning toward the good guys or at least a solid possibility.  Are we going to run out of room?  I wonder if it's going so well that Day is regretting some of the earlier offers/commits.  To be clear, I'm not pointing at anyone in particular, just lamenting that we might have to turn down some great players.
