Sounds like we’re going to get a BOOM right after we thump Penn State.

Not sure after reading all about him it seems like a lot of if this and that happens. Maybe a back up plan if all fails.

I really don't think we get Ricks, I'd love to see him suit up for us, but LSU is no laughing matter at the DB position either. If we're 1a, LSU is 1b at the position.

Well, LSU defense hasn't looked nearly as good as ours this year so far. I also dont think he flips, but having our D play better than LSU can't hurt. And we have Hafley so if any team could flip him, it's us. And he was going to come here before Urban retired. There are a lot of positives we have over LSU.

If Meyer takes the USC job when it is offered, Ricks will follow him.

2 things I though Urbans health issues were very serious like life and death. Does he need more money to risk his life? LSU has two of the better db coach's in America  and we tried to hire them. Some kids use college for just a stepping stone to the NFL and care less about anything else. Part of the reason they leave early if they wanted championships they would stay all 4 or 5 years. Not only that he probably has a sure shot to start day 1 at LSU and get a early out.

Terms other schools will have to come to grips with; we have the Pied Pipers of recruiting as far as QBs, WRs, DL, and DBs. No disrespect to the other staff. Alford has always been a solid recruiter and I fully expect Washington to join the Pipers.

More twist and turns but interesting. I wonder if there will be a surprise in the end of all this recruiting like most years? Change of heart of a running back would be nice but that seems dead at the moment. Surprised most are not pulling for the future Mr. Ohio to get on board he is my favorite to flip from Iowa St.

Based on those stats Jaxon Smith-Njigba’s senior highlight tape is going to be crazy!

HS

As crazy as this sounds, I think he's the best WR we have committed. The dude is dominating the top division in texas. Don't get me wrong, the rest of this class is insane, but he is going to be an animal. Severely under-ranked.

Maybe Francois also decommitted because Miami looks like as big a dumpster fire as Michigan.

Bigger! Manny refuses to let committed players make other visits... after he left Temple 2 weeks after signing his contract. Do as I say, not as I do.

200 yards on 9 receptions per game? Ridiculous. Congratulations, JSN!

HS
Vabuck213's picture

This! The other recruiting news is great but that average line of 200yds 3TDs(!) on 9 catches?? That's an average of 22 yds a catch and scoring every third catch, all at the highest level in Texas. That's insane

This a semi serious question: did George Whitfield changes his name to Quincy Avery a few years ago? Are they separate people? Did Quincy kill George?Is it like Highlander and there can be only one?!

Thanks for your work Zack! Updates are great.

Anyone have news on the 2021 kid out of Sloppy, OH? Bill Gass reported the Buckeyes were in on some sleeper athlete named Bronco Concrete.

Hmmm, corners that run 4.62 40's at 184 lbs. .... don't we have DE's at OSU at 255 lbs that run their 40's in that range (#33) ??

HS

I saw that as well. Could of  had a corner who run a low 4.27 at an OSU camp, was a legacy and could jump out of the gym and passed on him. He is a Golden Gopher now and doing well.

How would you like to rank the players in order in Texas and Florida. Funny though how a top 50 kid in those states are elite. I remember when Tress was at YSU and recruited a few players out of Florida that were left overs after every one else got the meat. Other than a bit under sized they played lights out and fast. So much talent there some took a week to find YSU but they could play.

Chris Gamble was 3* out of Pompano babyyyyy. The other 3* out of Florida Chimde Chekka something like that lol.Malcom Jenkins was @ 3* as well but he was out of Jersey or Maryland. A 3* in Florida is probably on par with mid 4*’s in Ohio. There is so much talent down here and just about every public HS has 2k+ students. My son graduated in the first class of a brand new HS in palm beach. I mean they are still creating more school districts down here. The company I work for did work at a brand new elementary school in West Kendal last year. The community was built 10 years ago in the extreme SW of Miami, basically they keep drying up the Everglades and keep creating new communities. And don’t get me started on warehouses.

On the other hand my old high school girl friend taught art in a Orlando high school and couldn't wait to get out of Dodge for many reasons but education is not the best in Florida and maybe because of growth and a lack of good teachers. They build these pods to teach in because the schools are crowded in some places. Just saw her last summer at our class reunion and now teaching in N.Carolina Mecklingburg I think and is and on the cusp to retire. Funny the Warren Ohio and Y Town area are tearing schools down up here and they can't build them fast enough in the South. Originaly from Warren O. both my elimentary McKinley and jr. high Turner are no longer. My folks left Warren too I graduated from Howland High.

Yea some schools have hundreds of those portables. One customer I worked for had the contract for reroofing 380 portables. They are smidge over 1000’ sq ft. They are attached in the center. Could only do them on the weekends so we tried knocking them out 8-12 every weekend. There are some charter schools that are good. We are helping our daughter & son-in law (paying for it) send my grandson to Montessori Academy pre-school through HS. He just turned 4, smart little fella. Uses a computer already.
 

I grew up in the Ohio Valley and left right after HS all the jobs were gone early 80’s, joined the navy, was stationed in KWest Navy.

The Nazis burnt Hemingway, Tolstoy, Hugo, Sinclair, Fitzgerald, Helen Keller, and many more they thought didn’t align with the party ideal. 

A guy got downvoted and timeout for calling others “dumbasses”, “fucking assholes” and posting a simple “fuck you!” in the comment section of a privately-owned sports blog. 

Yeah, just like nazi Germany.

Zach, seems like the DB recruiting is essentially trying to fill 2 remaining spots. Watts looks like a good candidate to fill 1 and then names like Grimes, Ricks and Ringo as the dream scenario to fill the last spot with Francois as a potential backup if all of those go somewhere else. Of those three dream guys, is Grimes the one we have the best shot on based on the other article today about him?
