Jamel Dean

Dean actually enrolled, but was turned away by the OSU medical staff.  He promptly tore another ACL when he started at Auburn then.

The mention of Dean made me think about Carlton Davis, who we had as a diamond in the rough but he flipped to Auburn on signing day. Think he ended up a Freshman AA and a 2nd round corner

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

Davis was a stud at Auburn, much better player than Dean in my opinion.

That's who I was thinking of.

Trying to come up with a couple, almost have to go Cox and Davis as mentioned above because everyone else I think of feels like a bullet we dodged.

I will still be upvoting any Fred Davis reference 40-50 years from now.

RYAN TIMMONS RELASE THE KRAKEN

I dont always root for college athletics, but when i do (which is most of the time) I choose THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

Nobody. We've been fine without anyone who has decommited.

but would we have been better with them?

Probably Cox and Woodbey. I think both would have been very good at OSU.

Remember that time Tristen Wallace decommitted from being our QB to being an Oregon WR? That was weird. Then he got dismissed at Oregon after being accused of sexual assault. Then we end up with... Dwayne Haskins.

It's better to be lucky than good sometimes...

Jordan Battle, in recent years. Our roster could use him since the DBs were light last year.

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

Alex Anzalone. Turned out to be a stud for Florida and is a great player for the Saints.

HS

I feel like he committed to every Power 5 team once or twice before being forced to sign with someone.

What, no votes for Kyle Kalis?

Wasn't an verbal commit but losing Micah Parsons is gonna hurt next few years. Dude already is poised to be a leader and a stud at PSU.

HS

Hasn't he been switched to lb and one of Franklins  not doing well in the class room and needs baby sitting?

There haven't been many which is nice. Danny Clark a funny one and many loved the kid. He can't find a home and is a bust. What ever happened to Sibley went to Pitt I think? Nice back slow a foot though. The kid from Hubbard db/wr in Scotts class I think he was the first to commit and went to another school maybe YSU ?

George Hill?  Pretty sure he signed with Pitt but had to retire due to a heart condition.

Terrell Hall who now plays at Bama??

believe he also changed his last name to Lewis or visa versa. He committed briefly back in 2016. 

HS

Another that came to mind for me, Emory Jones. Maybe he doesn’t get homesick like Baldwin and sticks around. Obviously undoes a lot of the dominoes that fell this off-season in the quarterback room, but an interesting hypothetical.

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

HS

Battle is the only one that sticks out as someone who could have a significant negative effect given how highly touted he was and left us without a CB in last years class. Holding onto cox would have been nice of course but DL is one area we are lucky enough to not have any worries about as long as Johnson is here.
I think it's a testament to how good our recruiting has been that even high 4 and 5 star decommits haven't hurt us, and in some cases have been replaced with better players.

I know he was never committed, but Christian Kirk is still to this day the one that got away. He was one of my favorite recruits ever- Buckeye or not.

According to Zach Smith (I know, I know), we never had a real chance with Kirk (and I recognize you said he didn’t commit), but kid was a baller.

HS

Thought of Kirk, and Stefon Diggs...both would've been huge in Columbus.

Diggs was the first Urban miss in Columbus.

Cox & Woodbey for sure. 

Battle is TBD, but probable.

Hall’s talent would’ve been nice but the whole Bama shorts incident really ruined that for me.

Even though it wasn't technically a decommitment, Trevon Grimes. He might have been my favorite recruit of all time, I thought he was going to be special, but then life happened.

HS

We never had him, but I wish we would have locked down Rondale Moore, because with him I dont think we lose to Purdue last year, and plus I love him as a player!!! kid is a stud.

We've had our share of great DBs but Carlton Davis, as mentioned above, was a stud.
