Do you think the staff's interest in Noah Brown's could affect Roberts decision at all? I know Brown is visiting right before FNL.

So many great athletes. My hope is that they all become buckeyes. Congratulations to all of our recruits getting a star bump. And to Donte for his 5 star ranking! Great read as always. Thank you for keeping us updated. 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Not Miles, but believe we're recruiting Roberts more as an H-back/ TE type to create mismatches. Don't think it affects Brown at all. Believe we're looking at Brown as a true WR.

If there isn't any room for Gesicki, I would guess that it would leave Brown out as well.

Love seeing Dante getting some extra love.  I would not be surprised to see Webb with a fifth star as well!

Webb's measurables and performance at The Opening weren't that good. Best 40 time was a 4.65.

Yeah but he continues to impress with his actual game skills.  He could easily be a consensus five star.  I dont care what his 40 time is if he's covering well and breaking up pass plays, which he has been doing consistently in camps.

Finally we will take a look into the future and preview the upcoming Friday Night Lights camp which will take place on Thursday July 26th at Ohio Stadium.

Did a double take when I saw this...is Friday Night Lights actually on Friday, or is it just a clever name?

how do you embed part of a webpage like that?

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

On the text entry field toolbar there is a button that looks like quotation marks. Just click that and it gives you a box to paste text in to.

thanks

What if you don't hear YOLO anymore because everyone who use to say it died?

Given the date, as I've always heard, is July 26th (a Friday) I'm pretty sure that was a typo.

Miles, what was up with Austin Roberts not moving up in the 247 rankings despite being named on several all Opening teams?!?!  I saw him catch a crazy good TD pass and his team won the 7v7 tourney.

I guess Indiana is our hotbed for wr prospects now. I like guys like Roberts..a nice compliment to the big play guys we picked up last year. He catches the ball away from his body and is a north/south guy after the catch. These guys keep drives alive. We used to always have a guy like that.

I think roberts would be an incredible pickup. His fathers the TEs coach for the colts, you know hes been teaching his son technique for his entire life. He looked to have extremely good hands and moved well after the catch. Would be a great addition to this class.

Didn't Gesicki cancel his visit to Wisconsin because he was fairly certain he wanted to be a buckeye?  Just curious why he would do that if he didn't have a committable offer.

Good evening all...is Roberts heads & tails better than Gesicki? Both camped so we have seen them up close and personal.

Some have said that they believe Gesicki will commit to Penn State. Personally think Roberts creates more mismatches as he can play WR/H-back/TE, but thats just me. Gesicki is more TE.

Gesicki is better and has a natural position.Just keeping it real.

I think that if Derek Barnett looks better than either, and he is probably a better defensive end, and I think that both Roberts and Gesicki look pretty damn good.

HS

That "if" at the beginning supposed to be there?

HS

No.  It was some sort of oversight on my part.

Gesicki told a recruiting analyst he was pretty sure he wanted to be a Buckeye after he canceled his visit to Wisconsin. I'd late to lose him to State Penn. I think we could fit both Roberts and Gesicki.

They'll take Smith and Lattimore over Wilson. But yes I'd love to have Wilson in this class. 

HS

I feel that OSU is going to have to leave out guys that are better than guys that were commited early. We would rather take roberts and gesicki and mavety but maybe not be able to because of guys like Hubbard and Johnson. Thoughts?

OH...

HS

If the staff didn't really want Hubbard and Johnson, they wouldn't have made their offers committable so early, believe that. Hubbard especially, in the eyes of the staff, is a hidden gem.

Are any of our current commits going to FNL?  It was cool last year when Bosa was getting love from the fans
