Bosa, Bosa, Young, Harrison, Sawyer. 

Sounds like DEU to me.

I know I was just simply naming the dudes that were/are beasts from day 1.

The Bosas came in huge already.  However, Chase Young added a lot of muscle with each year.  Well see how Harrison and Sawyer develop in terms of muscle size.

Interesting

Pick North is 2-3 overall but ranked 7th in the region by the computer polls. Still lot to play for.

Damn, this kid has me excited! His old school guys are funny but great. Funny cause they aren’t old school to me. Love that he realizes the work it’s gonna take to become something at Ohio State. Most think they will automatically become a star. Most don’t realize it’s a work in progress. He gets it.

Tenacious work ethic, great size and Coach Johnson molding him is one hell of a intriguing prospect.  Excited to watch this young man in the future. 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

This isn't a shot at his father specifically, but don't dwell on the negatives with your kids in sports, school, etc. Congratulate them when they do well, offer advice when they don't. We all grew up with a kid who could never do enough to make a parent happy, and that must suck.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster...

I subscribe to "Kick'em while they are up"

It's the best time to get their attention (ie listening skills, motivation) and teach them on ways to get better.

Save the positives when the need a little pick me up.

But agree, that if you are always one way (positive or negative) all the time the finished product will be a little... off

Agree that it can't be all negative all the time.  But just as Day has shown this year when the team seems to be humming along, there is always work to do.  I try to praise my kids for what they do well, but at the same time still show them where they may be leaving something to be desired.  Not everything has to be positive reinforcement.  There is a direct correlation to kids that can't adjust to being adults and dealing with adversity because they always were fed sunshine and rainbows growing up.  There is no good without bad, and vice versa.

Old school guys = Vrabel and JOHN SIMON?!

- signed, an officially old ass guy.

Yea that made me feel old.  Assuming most kids start to actually understand the game when they're about ~8-10, current recruits would be most attentive to guys who played starting around 2011.  That's wild.

Old school doesn’t necessarily mean old, it means they are from the older, tough guy style of play.

If Mike Vrabel and John Simon are old school, I am prehistoric school

It's a great example of how important it is to grow up in a "normal" household with parents around, to both discipline, teach, and also provide insights based on experience to help a young man grow, develop, and set him on a path to enable him to achieve his potential.  A lot of the kids on the team don't have this, and we as fans and people need to be more sympathetic and understanding when a kid strays a bit.  Our development is 10% DNA and 90% nurture.  

Good luck young man, and look forward to watching you dominate as a Buckeye.

GO BUCKS.

The article doesnt mention that his mom is over 6’ tall and was the D1 player of the year at Pick Central before it was central.  And his grandfather is WAY over 6’ tall, so the young man has some big genes in his family tree.  Michelle (mom) was a fantastic athlete herself as I mentioned the D1 player of the year. Just wanted that mentioned as the article didnt include anything abut her and I imagine she has been pretty tough on him as well as she was a really hard worker in her own right.
