Would be a safe bet, haven't been following recruiting much lately with school and stuff going on but its the summer now so I'll try to be more active.
Nevada gave the ==== for Trey Knox to Ohio State. Would be a big time start for the 2019 class if he committed on his visit tomorrow, following in the foot steps of the 2017 and 2018 class. Recruiting is insane right now, we may be the new Alabama.
Think its every 2018 commit, plus Gaoteote, Mitchell, Parsons and Carman... Could be more people but those are the only 4 names I know.
Alex G with the Anthony Cook crystal ball to Ohio State.
Mitchell runs a 5.0 40 and currently weighs around 245-250, which is why he was dropped. He's limited sideline to sideline and doesnt have elite athleticism. Two down backer at the next level but still a good football player, just not a 5 star right now.
That's good and all, but outside of Babb and Eagles, the rest of those targets are long shots at best. That's the reason why Givler said its the most open and unknown position at this time. Also could see an Ohio WR sneaking into the class.
I dont have any idea who are the staffs top targets at WR outside of Babb and Eagles. Givler has said that the WR board is the most open and unknown at this time out of all the positions.
I believe EJ Holland has said that if any team can get him out of Texas, it's Ohio State who has the best chance. He's very open to leaving the state for college.
Not sure if it has been posted elsewhere on the site tonight, but Brennan Eagles included Ohio State in his top 10. One of the best, if not the best WR in the 2018 class. From what I have read, Meyer is personally involved in his recruitment. 6'3/6'4, 220 pound kid that ran a laser timed 4.5 40 at the Houston Opening camp and abused every top DB there outside of some good back and forth battles with Anthony Cook.
At one point he said Ohio State and Alabama were his top 2, not sure what happened but as the poster before me noted, not a big deal. WR recruiting is very fluid right now, Babb is the only one I know for sure who the staff really wants. Moore's recruitment has been all over the place, most recently trending FSU and now trending Nebraska... There will most likely be more twists and turns as it goes on.
Emory Jones got his 5th star back.
Agree on Saban, but Haskins is older than Hurts. He would've been the runaway starter over Hurts this past season if he was at Alabama, which would've given Hurts two years to improve his passing on the bench and learn under Haskins.
Barrett didnt beat out Cardale until a week before the 2014 season, but once he was given a chance, showed that he was a better QB than Braxton Miller was. Haskins and Burrow both have good arms, but from all reports, Haskins has the best NFL arm on the team and the most potential. Hurts is a very limited passer and only won the job because of his running ability, which made up for his passing weaknesses, but he was the very first primarily running QB that Saban has used, as he prefers pro-style QBs over anything. With Rosen its close, but I like Haskins just as much as him. They both have #1 overall pick talent. I have never been impressed with Browning, much like I have never been impressed with any Oregon QBs or Big 12 QBs.
Hurts no doubt, Saban plays the best player and Haskins arm is 10 times better than Hurts arm. Besides, if Haskins was there this past season, he would've won the job over Hurts to begin with and it would've been him going against Clemson in the National Championship game. Rosen is close, but I still like Haskins better. Plus Rosen hasn't been able to stay healthy. Browning definitely.
Name the Ohio State players, over the last three years, who had huge spring games and then disappeared during the season... Jerome Baker, Malik Hooker, Michael Thomas, etc.. all flashed during their spring games and we saw how they all turned out.
Think that was sarcasm.
I don't think Haskins is sticking around three more years to wait and play. Its much more likely Burrow does than Haskins. Kid has way too much talent to not be playing, he would be the starter for any other team in the NCAA this season, outside of USC (Darnold), Oklahoma (Mayfield), FSU (Francois) and Penn State (McSorley).
Yes, I'm aware he's a redshirt Freshman, I'm also aware he will be a redshirt sophomore next season and eligible to leave after one year starting, eg Malik Hooker, with a great season and it will leave us all wondering why he wasn't on the field sooner and wishing we could have watched him more as a Buckeye.
Yup and if Beck/Warinner actually played to Cardale's strengths in the 2015-2016 season, we would've been back to back champs with the most loaded roster in the NCAA that season.
I just think he's more likely to stick around and wait his turn being an Ohio boy. His brother also posts on Bucknuts and says transferring has never been on Burrow's mind.
Yes, I think he's a much better passer than JT and that's what the QB position is all about. You hear everyone praise JT for his leadership, his guts, his running ability, how many have praised him for his arm? You hear people praise Haskins arm time and time again, how long can we let this talent waste on the bench while watching a QB who cant make the necessary throws or decisions required to beat elite teams?
