Couldn’t have had a better atmosphere Saturday. Should hear a “boom” any minute now...

Yesterday was quite a day for recruits to visit! If that doesn't make an impression, nothing will.

Any idea if Jakob James is any relation to Matt James, the Notre Dame OT signee from St. X who was tragically killed during his senior spring break trip?

You probably should have worded that differently. He was not killed.   That implies someone else was at fault.  Matt James if I recall was drunk and fell over a balcony on his own doing.

I disagree. So does the dictionary.

Kill 

transitive verb

1a: to deprive of life : cause the death of

AIDS is a disease that has killed thousands

He threatened to kill them.

Her father was killed in a car crash.

He was killed when he fell off a balcony during spring break.

If I said, "Ohio State killed Michigan," would you interpret that literally?

Whatever, he was drunk and fell over the railing on his own volition.  He killed himself.

It’s bad enough that he lost his life in an alcohol related accident. Why be an ass about it?

Seriously, no need to be a complete douche. Regardless of how it happened its tragic, especially for his family.

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

Killed is frequently used in the context of accidents as well.

No need to steal thunder or tip your hand too much, but could we be looking at a BOOM this week, following such a big visit weekend?

"he did hear that "a couple we're going to commit."

Fucking fantastic!!

Basically said he would have pull the trigger if his mom made the trip.

Waiting on Tre Williams, Mekhail Sherman, and so many others to post a BOOM.

It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

there is a local kid considering both programs, did this weekend have an impact on his decision???

Go Buckeyes!!!

No way Zach Harrison heads up north now, right?

Hey... that was my question. Great minds!

Go Buckeyes!!!

One game doesn’t make or break a decision. It’s about comfort level. With Harrison, that’s exactly what it will be. 

HS

After that game, the only reason he heads up north is if he was was never truly interested in the local team. To be frank, Michigan is a on pace for a complete collapse in 2-3 years if they cannot beat us/make the playoff very soon.

HS

Harrison is most likely gone. Some kids just want to take their 3-4 Ls to the Buckeyes.

with all the neg recruiting that's probably going on out there with the bum shit about urban and everything else, saturday's win should move the meter in our direction on any big names that were on the sidelines. beat northwestern!

Hope ZH stays home, really enjoyed this performance against Blue. Looking forward to the recruiting pieces coming together. Go Bucs!

IF Devell Washington is supposedly  6'4" and Michael Thomas is listed 6'3" ; the picture above sure doesn't support those facts.  Maybe it's a bad picture angle or perhaps just a high school athletic department hype machine?

I'm wondering if OSU will have a shot at flipping Brandon Smith or Devyn Ford if the rumors of Franklin leaving PSU for USC are true? I know this question is a little premature but I'm sure someone has asked those guys if they will look around if Franklin leaves.

HS

USC went public saying Helton is their man. 

HS

And likely relegated themselves to an 8-4 season next year in the process.

Votes of confidence are often kisses of death. They wouldn’t need to make a statement if things weren’t tenuous. 

HS

Maybe but Urban had to say he was coming back or it wrecks your recruiting. Just like what was mentioned about poaching PSU if Franklin leaves.

HS

Yep. And there was some ridiculous article out there saying that Helton staying at USC was a huge loss for Meyer because he was all but a sure thing to bolt for the USC job due to OSU being too "toxic" an environment for him. In what universe is USC a more desirable and elite program than OSU (especially for a guy like Meyer who is from Ohio)? I would've thought it was a McDouche article if it hadn't come from The Daily Caller.

Is it just me or are we being linked with more 3 stars than usual?

Or are these the sorts of "they are 3 stars until we hear they get offers from big name schools"?

HS

If those 3 stars are like Chris Olave, then welcome aboard the Buckeye train!

HS
gobucks1966's picture

Tired of hearing about 3 stars more so the 2020 class. Not to say they won't  be great. I also thought someone would of popped by now and still don't think Harrison has made up his mine and would love to know why that visit?

Harrison I believe said he isn't going to announce his decision until January. After the complete dismantling of arguably Harbaugh's best scUM team on Saturday against perhaps Meyer's worst OSU team I would hope that would sway his mind towards the home team at least a little. But it's Harrison, he's a notably private person who clearly doesn't care much for the recruiting process. Who knows where he actually stands at this point.

HS
SpaceBuckeye's picture

Nope,he was wanting to enroll early and sign during the early period.

Those who say they can and those who say they can't are both right. Which one are you?

HS
CTownBucknut's picture

Harrison wants to enroll early, so a decision should be coming soon.  As for him being notably private and not caring for the recruiting process, I find it ironic how much attention and publicity he gets about not wanting attention and publicity.  He has to do what's best for him of course, but if he really despised the process as much as he claims, one would think he would have made a decision a while back, and just ended things.  

HS
Dstacify's picture

His decision may already be made. It just might not be public knowledge yet and he might be refraining until January to make it public knowledge. Of course there is the possibility that if he secretly chose TTUN the outcome of Saturday's game may change his mind.

HS
CTownBucknut's picture

I get that, but that's kind of my point.  If that's true, which we have no idea, then his recruiting process continues to garner much more attention, which by all accounts, he's not a fan of.  None of what I'm saying is meant in any way as a negative toward Harrison, he seems like a great kid, and I wish him well no matter where he goes.  I'm just saying that if it's true how he dislikes the process, he simply could have made a decision and shut it down, as others have done whom we heard disliked the process. So either he truly is so torn he can't decide, or perhaps he doesn't hate the process as much as people speculate.

Takes a while for a Kid to take his official Visits.Then to measure the Pros/Cons of each program/university - pretty big decision.I don't blame him for taking all the time he needs - regardless of where he goes

HS
CTownBucknut's picture

I don't blame or begrudge him for taking his time either, HSH.  I'm just saying it sort of contradicts many of the reports about how much he dislikes the recruiting process.  Most recruits have already committed by now, many of which also had several choices and tough decisions to make, yet his is still dragging out.  That just doesn't sound to me like somebody who despises the recruiting process.  

HS

exactly. Plus if he announces early he'll still be recruited and have peopel pressure him to change his mind.

Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate.

Thanks for the update and quotes from recruits, Derrick.

Saw a couple reasonable recruit conjectures on a couple other sites.

any  recent [since Oct] indications/reports of how Dwan Mathis 'developed' this HS season, and if/how he began relationships with fellow commits and recruits?

"Daily Preparation" is a darned useful attitude to apply... TODAY... each day.  QB is a positional match for 'student of the game.' attitude..

GO BUCKS!
