Damn it reading the title i thought he had suddenly flipped his commitment from lsu, exciting news nonetheless! Hoping it may work out in our favor.

He has, done deal, he was just waiting for the IMG acceptance. You can always tell by the changes in tweets. That’s not it, Fleming said 5 or 6 silents. Ricks would be #3. Day and staff are in beast mode, the next saban? I always thought TOSU was the sleeping giant during the Tressel years. All we needed was a recruiter like Meyer. Day will finish the job. Had a premonition that OSU would win back to backs, just thought it would be Meyer. Won’t be long before tsun won’t even have the all time win record to fall back on.

MICHIGAN STILL SUCKS

Yep. He’s a Buckeye. 

Day and staff are crushing it ... guess the Post-Urban fall-off in recruiting is another mirage as well.

The #thebrotherhood definitely makes me think he's a flip.  I'm not saying it's exclusive to Ohio State, but it's pretty well known that's our mantra right now.

Ricks with Bijan Robinson would take this class to the next f***ing level.  A man can dream right?

Please don't use that phrase on here. Every time I see it I have a nightmare flashback to that Harbaugh video. It's like having the cold chill of an evil presence in the room.

Man, if he comes too, this could seriously be the best class recruited ever by OSU. Dude is legit. Makes me proud as a buckeye fan. Go Bucks!!!!

Football is a religion in Ohio. We attend our service every fall on the banks of the Olentangy. A place we affectionately call "the shoe".

Want him? Yes

need him? Yes

this is superbly good news. Our recruits can do the recruiting along with the staff

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Best “recruiting” recruiting class ever. They are doing serious work! 

HS
letsgobucks's picture

Agreed! This class is very very close

HS
gobucks1966's picture

Not sure about that and none of them signed yet either. The 1968 class here is rated in some circles as the best of all time and there has been others through the years here and at other schools.

Yeah, the 1967 class that helped win the 1968 NC had like 14 players get drafted by the NFL in 1971, four or five in the first round.

Still, this class is looking pretty epic.

He was talking about the job the recruits are doing at recruiting themselves, saying it’s the best ever in that capacity.  I certainly don’t recall a class like this, with so many guys going so far out of their way to help recruit. It’s very cool. 

HS

Absolutely. Day's staff has done incredible work. But we should also give credit to the young men they brought on early. Those guys are bringing a pack a wolves with them.

HS

Did those LSU insiders, forget whether it was 247 or Rivals, ever back off the 'he is coming to Baton Rouge' stuff?

Day and Hafley need to turn up the heat. I have a feeling Cavazos may play a part in where ends up landing ultimately.

Forget who said it, but think it was one of the recruiting guys from here, that him switching to IMG would not only be good, but actually critical to him flipping to OSU. Step 1, complete.

HS

Agree it was yesterday I think but remember one thing LSU has a great DB staff and we tried to get them here.

I read and listen to a lot of different sites and starting to think this class is one player short of filled. It might be filled and these dates are being spread out for all to get there ovations for lack of a better word. Robinson Knighton Williams Ranson and Ricks. Sounds like a big law firm like Elk and Elk. Some say 25 others 26 and even 27 in this class. Some have been changed mostly bumped back.

Legendary game!

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

Wouldnt mind seeing the class stick at 24 on absolute purpose until ESD....like, hey, whats it gonna be man? Ha

HS
raiderred's picture

I know we would have missed on some other prospects we were able to get but hard not to imagine what this class would have looked like with Meyer still as head coach. Would have gotten ricks and Sherman which would be nasty.

HS

Ricks and others still in play

DroneBuck's picture

Dude, we have 4 of the top 13 WR’s committed. Insane production by Day & staff on the recruiting trail. Not sure Urban could do any better. Ryan Day is absolutely crushing it.

HS
raiderred's picture

I never complained or said anything bad about day?!?  I just said it would have been a monstrous addition to get those two also. Be at that Clemson level. And we still probably get those four receivers with meyer as coach. Not like Hartline was a new addition to the stafff.

Just pencil in Ricks to the 2020 class now.

The kid's an Alpha male. "It could be 500 cornerbacks committed... I always think I’m going to be the top dog wherever I go." You want that kind of player on your team.

“Me and Urban talked every single night," Ricks said. "That was my guy, and when I heard he was leaving, I was hurt. If he was still there, it would’ve been a whole other story. We were ready.”

Uh, somebody let this kid know: Urban is right there. Come to Columbus, kid, you can talk to UFM any time you want, visit him during office hours, whatever. 

HS
gobucks1966's picture

Keep hearing more and more Ranson Ricks Robinson Knighton and Williams are in. PLUS a 26th player which will come from the Dline Cowan or a longs shot kid from Texas forgot his name starts with a B.. Just repeating what I have been hearing from many recruiting sites.

Win on Saturdays and emphasize that we are among the best. Win all games and show that last years weaknesses are Gone. Recruiting great shows all important issues are being done. All talented young men want to compete for the top prize. Being ranked top 6 early and top 2 or 3 to finish the season and put us into the playoffs. Effectively competing with the competition is essential. Clemson and our being stubborn and 1 dimensional is the definition of bad.
You want this and other 5 star talent ? Earn it every day.
Things are strong and positive. Keep sharp top to bottom.
