Hey, if he's that talented, keep him on the field! Glad he enjoyed some coaching from two of the best.

Problem is Ohio State recruits well. We have players at each position that a specific for that position. The best in the nation. We have no need to double play anyone.

Billy Price, Sam Hubbard, and Brandon White beg too differ (Baldwin, Freigel,etc too).
Guys that can play anywhere allow for roster flexibility to keep/get the best players available

I've never seen Either of the two play the opposite side of the ball once they went to college. Hubbard is strictly a DE and Price OL. And it's Brendon White, I actually graduated with his brother at Lima Senior and his dad graduated with my dad, the great William White. Also from Lima senior. But anyways, of high school when kids are "the best athlete" they play all over. But college is 99.99% position specific

Apoligies on the name error, Brendon. Not a fan of players playing two ways in a single game but the ability for a player to switch positions is definitely a plus.

I was just busting your balls. But, as far as the two way thing I feel the same way. And I don't see Urban winding a kid like that. Not with the talent we have

You didn't not name a single Ohio state player. Lmao Fail. The whole point is Ohio State doesn't need to utilize players on both sides of the ball.

Every single program in the Country doesn't need to recruit two way players.  There might be 2-3 in the entire country that does it. Not sure what your point is.

Josh Alabi has switched from DL to OL over the winter ...

Gambles 2-way play was born of necessity, not choice.

The relationship he has with LJSr will eventually sway him our way IMO

You can't be coached up at every school like you can be at tOSU 

The off season bites !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

36-24-36? Ha ha, only if she's 5'3"

It has been said on here that of Parsons and Oweh that one will go to OSU and the other PSU. Is the sentiment now that we will get both? Judging from what has been said tonight it sure sounds like it.

possibly, but not probable IMHO.  would they take 4 DE's?  maybe...

15-1 is SWEET!

HS

Typed this before seeing the talk of a possible Chatfield flip. If true then yes, we will have to take them both.

HS

agree with that.  Chatfield is probably a very good player.  but him or Parsons?  Him or Oweh?  not counting Smith, as I too think he slides inside to DT...

15-1 is SWEET!

If a guy on defense is a team's best tight end it means that team REALLY screwed up on recruiting.

Remember that when those schools who want you to play TE for them come calling.

HS

Or that a guy is just such a great athlete that it's hard to keep him off the field and he has a desire to do both. He said he'll focus on defense first because he knows it's his best spot. Was Chris gamble used on offense and defense because they didn't have quality players at WR and CB? 2 sides to every coin

I will bet $100 right now to anyone that an Ohio State starting DE will never play both sides of the ball under Urban Meyer.

OSU was depleted at CB do to injuries, some career ending. 

HS

Which was also his better position. Could make the argument if theyd needed help at WR but he played on the league as a CB.

C'mon over Mr. Parsons. We'd be glad to have ya. 

I used to think UFM stood for Urban F*cking Meyer

He's a running back. It's a camp...not sure it's designed to show his skills.

New Day for OSU. Same noon for TTUN.

Could be what he needs to become a 6-star recruit...

The good news is that the BRR is crazy innovative.

i could easily see it breaking new ground with a "6 star" guy.

the BRR isn't bound by conventional rules.

the BRR makes its own rules.

He could show off his pad level. People forget, low man wins

Teague didn't participate in the camp. Snead, however, did, and impressed those who were watching

I like that he is thinking about money.  It seems that LJ Sr is the best surefire route to that money.

I like that Buckeyes are being upfront and honest. Master the D. Then maybe a chance at the O. 

HS

Yeah, I don't have problem entertaining play at both sides of the ball...especially iff the recruit is entertaining coming to Ohio State (and is talented enough to pull it off).

Good to read Micah Parsons performing in Ohio Stadium...and hope for more to come down the road.

Hindsight is, and in, 2020

good vibes based off of that interview. Seems like he's high on LJ.

We want the best and Mr. Parsons is among the best recruits. If he wants championship rings he will join us. Then he will still be among the best but then Team is the focus. He will chose his time.
