Tyreke has the swagger and confidence to match his aggressiveness and size. He will be a great one.

Of all the studs in this class Tyreke might be the one I'm most excited about. He's special.

Maybe he will re-think being a cb if playing safety is a faster way to play early.he could always try corner later or maybe sooner if he beats someone out.anyways,glad he is a buckeye.welcome to buckeye nation.

Much depth would make either S or CB 3 or 4 deep with talent. Great challenge to have.

"maintain" speed simply does not fit the 'bigger stronger faster' mantra.

film clips from 24/7 highlights show a physical DB with good recovery and play on the ball skills.   Staying with the WR after initial LOS contact... not so much.  I can see why some see him a better fit at S than CB; but, I like the approach of trying DBs out first at CB to find the best guys for playing on that proverbial 'stand alone' island.

Man, each time this feature comes out I'm reminded just how special this recruiting class is. We are set up for lots of success now and in the future.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
