"Ohio State stands high," should really be the reaction of any defensive back looking to get the most out of their playing time in college, and looking to go onto the NFL.
Spoiler alert, it should be the same for every other position, wait and see.
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
But how in the world does A&M have shot at this guy? Can only be that they were the first S$C team to show up with the bags.
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
Cue the bag man!
The BIG has deep cash pockets too. If you don’t believe cheating goes on at all P5 schools, you are simply naive.
Damn it feels good to be a Buckeye
Great stuff, Zack. The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for literature was awarded yesterday so it’s too late to get you on this year's list but, as Bengals fans have become used to saying, there’s always next year. Keep up the good work!

Born a Badger, Raised a Buckeye
Really want him in that class.. Of course because he is the number 1 rated corner but even if he was rated lower, his tape and measurements speak for themselves... Come on down Mr. Grimes.. All American material
Hey you can get drafted from any school if you're good enough. But if you want the best chance to go at the top of the draft why wouldn't you come to Ohio State? In two years when he gets here All our current starters and their backups will either be gone or Seniors. There's room for ya's Tony.
It’s pronounced “Thee”.
"We narrow it down and see what schools will be best for me. Right now, I narrowed it down to a top three teams. I'll probably narrow it down to a top eight on my birthday," said Grimes
Me trying to calculate how you narrow a top 3 list down to a top 8:
Ha, good catch. He said he wants to take all 5 Officials so he's gotta have more teams on his 'list' even though it seems he has already narrowed it down to 3.

Grimes is a must-get for the 2021 class. And it sure seems like we may be in the drivers seat. I'm sure he's watching how all of the former Buckeyes are performing in the NFL.
Ironic, I was curious about this guy for awhile. I wondered why he wouldn't seriously consider OSU. Now I know that he is. If I had a son, and he played in the secondary, I'd want him to go to OSU. Eventually, if he is good enough, he would go on to play for the NFL version of the Buckeyes, the Saints.

The Dallas Cowboys would like a word with you Stantmann...

Here's a fun link if you have a few minutes, it shows all the Buckeyes and what teams they play on in the NFL.
"Defiance in Silence"
That's still fewer than play for New Orleans.
Thanks for that update, I wasn't sure about how that worked... (heavy on the sarcasm, all in good fun)
I will take New Orleans for $1,000 Alex as the NFL version of the Buckeyes in the secondary.
That would leave me RB's and WR's in Dallas for $800 then...
I could be wrong, but I thought it was just Elliott and Smith on the active roster? I was talking about the secondary. Still, yes, you make a very valid point. Jerry Jones has always loved the Buckeyes, in fact, they traditionally have the most Buckeyes on their team. I remember an interview in the 90's where he said he loves drafting them, because they are always good - Or something like that.
He’s been high on us for a long time
I enjoy reading stories like this. The motivation of kids to go to the league is strongest it seems with highly ranked players. The contrast between Tony Grimes and the way he sees coming to Ohio State and the way someone like Drew Donley sees coming to Ohio State is worlds apart. The best part of it all is when young men like these come together at a place like OSU they become life long brothers who end up helping each other reach their goals. This is the interesting part of recruiting to me.

Would be a big get. I was surprised to see VT as an option until I saw he was from Virginia.
The universe owes us a Grimes...

We stand high for you Tony Grimes. We stand high for you.
TG Proud Buckeye alumnus.
Don't forget, young Mr. Grimes...the NFL is only for a short time in one's life. You certainly have the talent to make it but Ohio State can also set you up for life after football with its "Real Life Wednesdays" program. Either way, you win!
Everything is perfectly set up for him to join tOSU class. He's a top end DB, tOSU will have opportunities for early impact for DB's as a lot of the current crop will be gone at that point. Hope he decides on the good guys!
Also Ohio vs the World meet Grimes Against Humanity.

Is there a better receiving core to practice against than the NFL assembly line that Brian Hartline is assembling?
It's a leg up on the competition to get 3 years of NFL coaching from Jeff Hafley before you declare for the Draft. Plus an NFL prep culture at OSU. How many interviews have we seen from former players and NFL coaches extolling the virtues of OSU culture... plenty!
I was surprised to see how thin our CB room will be after this year. Arnette and Okudah are gone after this year. Wade will be tempted to go if he continues to play well. He has that Jalen Ramsey, Derwin James kind of versatility. Only reason I see him staying is if he wants to prove he can be the #1 lockdown corner and get into that top 10 range. But if he leaves its pretty much Sevyn Banks, Tyreke Johnson and Cameron Brown. Williamson and Reip seem to be playing more safety than CB. He could definitely see some PT as a fresman and then potentially start as a soph. opposite banks or brown or something like that. And with the way we rotate in the secondary, just being in the top 3/4 means you are getting plenty of PT
You also need to account for the recruits who will be coming in the 2020 class. They will have a leg up on him. If he enrolls early, and is as talented as advertised, he could easily see early playing time or definitely on special teams.
So let me get this straight... Ginn was a high school qb, #1 DB at one point as a recruit, and a first and second team all american at OSU as a WR? On top of that he's got over 12 years in the league and counting?
Will never stop being impressed with him and how awesome it is to have him as a Buckeye.
Sounds like he's going about it the right way. Good luck
As a former HS cornerback, it is really nice to watch his highlight film and realize "that is what the coaches were trying to get me to do." His back pedal and swivel or so smooth and natural. You can see he has incredible work ethic. I wish him well wherever he ends up, but boy he would look good in S&G.
Notice how much more mature he looks in the picture at the top versus his 247 pic. I suspect there's probably a year between those two. Imagine what another year and a half is gonna do. I want him here and it sounds pretty promising!!
In addition to being a top notch athlete, it's apparent that he has a sharp football mind. All the tools to be a great one.
AKA the Horseshoe, the Shoe, and the House That Harley Built
Hopefully he comes our way, but my biggest takeaway from this article is that Washington is making as big a difference on the recruiting trail as he is with the defense. Not the first guy that has singled out Washington as a key relationship for recruits.
Wherever you go, there you are
ONE Tony Grimes please! Go Al W. And J. Hafley..Gettum up scouts! LOL!
