is it pronounced o-shag-hennessey 

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Five star punter? Tressel is smiling like the cat that ate the canary. Welcome, Mr. O'Shaughnessy

It's hard to see a punter as five star.  Five toes, maybe.

There must be a different rating system for kickers than the rest of the players.  Not sure how the 18th best punter in the nation is also a five star.  None the less, welcome to the family!

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

You didn’t know the top 18 players in the class are all punters? It’s like on Oprah, “You get punter, you get a punter, YOU ALL GET A PUNTER!”

A 5 star punter... who's the "the 18th-best punter in the class, according to chrissailerkicking.comclass." Erratum, I think it's called.

Looks like any division 1 prospect is a 5 star according to the key at the top.

I got caught with that as well. A five star punter then on top of that 18th best.

Tressel honored the punt, but Urban puts great care into it as well. Johnston, then Chrisman and now O'Shaughnessy is on deck.

5 star with one offer from Toledo.  Could there be a more dramatic illustration of how much most college programs don't value kicking specialists.  Glad OSU doesn't suffer from that short sightedness.  It has served the Buckeyes well over the years to have a typically superior kicking game.

 the five-star O'Shaughnessy is considered the 18th-best punter in the class,

 Huh? 5 star but 18th best in the class? Do they just make it rain 5 stars for punters or something?

He is rated a 5 star by the Kicking and Punting service. 

Drue Chrisman is the highest ranked punter ever by 247 composite as a .8529 3 Star, #767 overall in the country for the class of 2016

Yep. True showed what a good punter can do. Bama's punter nearly beat us in the BCS playoff game when we were out playing them. And Cam certainly took care of business while here.

Boom!

I think there is title inflation when the 18th best punter is accorded five stars. Kind of like Major League Soccer. The common definition of five star is projection to the first round of the NFL draft. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Most recruiting services rate elite kickers all in one bunch and will be rated a 3 star more than likely. In all my 55+ years of following recruiting I have never seen one higher than that. My guess in the world of kickers he is a 5 star. With the rave of recruiting these days and the interest this is a new one and finally kickers are getting their do. I doubt he will be more than a 3 when entered in our ranking though ? If my memory is correct Nugent was a walk on and not sure what his star was ? If anyone recalls Rich Spangler he was a 3 star kicker back in the day but was recruited not a walk on.

I was going to comment that he was going to bring our star average down, but I guess not.

If he had signed with TTUN, he would have possibly been their highest-rated player.

A thing repeated will happen a third time.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

I don't think he is a 5 star in the rankings of all the players? Only as a kicker am I wrong here gang? I have never seen a kicker in a top 250 ever and I will bet a 3 star tops.

That's a win... 'cause that's the main reason I put it up. I was looking for a dog kicking a football (BadDog - get it!) and I saw this and couldn't stop laughing.

I would like to see Urban go after a placekicker here in Oklahoma! Name is Noah Rauschenberg

. Kid is automatic for Union in Tulsa (6A State champs almost every year). I've seen him kick under pressure from 59 yards out and would have been good from 65.

I have always thought about for kids who have this option placed before them because if Michael plays his cards right (greyshirt, then redshirt, then 4 years starting after Dru leaves) could be most of the way to completion of a PhD before he is all done.

Michael was in my sons baseball team for a bit. A REALLY nice family and his dad is a philanthropist of sorts in New Albany raising money for After School All Stars. 

Its crazy seeing the kids my kids grew up with developing into star athletes.  I look forward to the O Shaghennesy memes. 

The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.
