Clifford, come on down!

Have to wonder if Texas Tom is telling Jaxon that he won't see the field at OSU with this loaded WR class. Hopefully Jaxon is doing his due diligence and finds that Columbus is the place for him.

Herman is a dirtbag. He is probably talking shit on osu because there is nothing positive about texas

Please tell us why are you trolling here?  The majority of your comments most ostensibly demonstrate clear antipathy towards OSU.    Who exactly hailed Herman as the next Urban?  Cite empirical evidence?

I’m not trolling! 4 years ago our fans were hailing the greatness of Herman. Now most hate him. Wonder why most fan bases hate us.

Most of our fans weren't praising Herman. Stop taking the few and making it sound like the majority.

BS! 98% of our fans hailed him the man to follow Urban’s footsteps. Don’t kid yourself

Herman hadn't been outed as a dirt bag 4 years ago...

What is so hard about that for you to understand? Unless you've spent the last 3 years under a rock with no access to college football related media, you can't in good faith state that the situation with Herman isn't drastically different than it was when we won the national title in 2014.

Wonder why most fan bases hate us

We win. A lot. And we celebrate those wins. A lot. I couldn't care less what other fanbases think about OSU when there's really only 2 or 3 that can even sniff the levels of success OSU has had.

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

You do realize people's opinions of coaches can changed based on more information about said coach. Over the past few years, Herman has been negative towards Ohio State and is even said to have leaked the whole Zac Smith situation. He also has many texts that have come to light because of that situation that show what a dirt bag he really is. Zac Smith took him down with him.

Texas is fairly loaded at WR as well so it would be moot. And I doubt Herman is into negative recruiting, it would not be looked upon well by UT admin. Not to mention he is a good coach and former Buckeye.

Is Liam Clifford's brother Sean Clifford starting QB at State Penn??  Sean Clifford went to St. X.  Sort of important fact that could/should be in this article.

I asked the same question in the 4/8/19 Hurry Up

Is it safe to assume that Clifford is the brother of PSU QB Sean Clifford, who also went to St. X?

From Sean Clifford's PSU bio:

Full name is Sean Burke Clifford...Son of Kelly Burke and John Clifford...Has one younger brother, Liam Clifford...Cousin, Ann, is currently attending Penn State...

This is the third Hurry Up that Liam Clifford's been featured and for whatever reason, Sean has not been mentioned in any of them. Clearly, PSU is a school to take seriously for his commitment, especially since Sean will be a senior in 2021 when Liam will be a freshman.

It’s mind-boggling to look at the 2021 WR talent that will not be getting one of the coveted spots in our class.

Would like to understand the recruiting formula that Hartline uses.   Seemingly he has the potential to lock up all the top WR in the country on any given year.  I’m sure his NFL experience is the real deal along w honesty and maybe not such a big age gap to the recruits

In terms of fundamentals, there were very few, if any WRs in the NFL better than Hartline. He mightve been the best route runner aside from Julian Edelman in the entire league. He wasnt the fastest guy but he got open. Recruits know this and know he can teach them to be great NFL WRs in college so they have no learning curve after getting drafted. Look at Terry Mac and Parris.

Formula? Go after the best WRs not from the South, and most of them will be heavily interested in tOSU.

I just hope we can keep him for a number of years. I can only imagine the opportunities he is going to have sooner than later. He is a great coach and recruiter.....but more importantly just a great person that is relatable and very intelligent. Especially when it comes to football.

Clifford many getting excited because he is a Ohio kid. Sure a fine talent but there are more than a few I would want before him talent wise. Ohio kids will jump many times and leaves you with a fine player but someone else is left out that is better. Just a thought so many leaving PSU I wonder what big brother says about Harper Valley in the real world.

In any other year, Clifford would have already been offered, but Hartline is recruiting at never seen before levels. But you can't teach his speed and leaping ability. He's the kind of kid that will flourish at a place like MSU or PSU ----he would be their #1 WR and a focal point of the whole offense. And 3 years later he's a solid NFL draft pick with OSU fans saying "how did he get away?" 

He's a great kid....and spent a little bit of time around him.....my only concern is St X's QB play might be a little down this year after what I saw in last week's scrimmage (but it was a very controlled scrimmage so it's hard to say).

Bucks19. I thought Herman was a at times a piss poor play caller (MSU come to mind, not running Carlos Hyde ) Urban made Herman or he would still be at Iowa State.
