AE anyway you can let us know you’re current thoughts about what is going to happen with Gibbs, Martinez, Holmes and Roche ??? Pleassssssse!
Anybody hear any news on Martinez lately? Is he just waiting to see who we hire for a DC / DB coach? Does he have any visits lined up?
I believe what it came down to with Phillips was the Hafley departure set off a bunch of doubt about going to Ohio State and what Utah had to offer. Utah is closer to home, can potentially offer his brother & he is a big fish in a littler pond compared to what he would start out at as at tOSU. While Ohio State offers the better option for his career and is better in his head, Utah became the decision in his heart. His father’s interview (247 I think it was), sounded like he was kind of trying to pitch why Utah was not that bad of a choice compared to Ohio State. Almost like he was trying to convince himself that Utah was a good choice and not far behind Ohio State. I can only imagine the conversations at home. Clark probably had these thoughts for a while but the departure of Hafley kicked them into full gear. No judgement on Clark or his father because I don’t know them personally. Just kind of throwing my assumptions out there. You have to do what makes you happy in the end. Just really stinks that he isn’t going to be a Buckeye & flipped right before he was going to sign. Kid looked like a high round draft pick for BIA. Best of luck to the kid, except if he plays THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY.
I’ve really only seen Hafley, LJ, Day & Hartline consistently on recruiting trips via the twitter pictures. The occasional Stud & Wilson. obviously doesn’t mean the other ones aren’t out, just kind of curious if the other coaches go on recruiting trips or if those are usually for only certain coaches and our other assistant coaches stay in Columbus and recruit via phone and in house.

Corey Kiner news?
Ah got a few more nuggets. Apparently OU is far more interested in Dontae Manning (another decommit), Josh Eaton (a guy who is probably gonna flip from Texas), and Jahquez Robinson (who is any day seemingly a flip from Bama), was a mutual spilt for watts and OU— Jad Wilt fan acount (@WiltReese) October 3, 2019
So do you think this means Bijan Robinson isn’t going to be a Buckeye?
247 did come out with Bijan news after Rivals the first time so hopefully Rivals is more tuned into Bijan. I doubt it, but I’m just hoping. “Insert praying hands emoji”
Cox & Woodbey for sure.
Battle is TBD, but probable.
Hall’s talent would’ve been nice but the whole Bama shorts incident really ruined that for me.
Potential Dark Horses : Jake Moretti, Antjuan Simmons, Kane Patterson
I don’t know if it is a NCAA thing, our program or what the deal is with the cap at 25 but does anyone else find it super irritating that the year we could certainly use the extra scholarships, we seem to not have them. Don’t mean to be a pessimistic but dang, I just want the BOOMS.
I have a question for anybody that cares to answer.
i am a subscriber at 247, I do not have a subscription to rivals. Would it be worth it to get a subscription to rivals?
BK has a pic up of Ricks & Cavazos throwing up OH!
Question about Sam Adams. Could he potentially fill the same role as DeaMonte Traynum was going to play in this class? Some articles/posts I have seen has said he is solid on both offense and defense. My opinion is that he looks more like an offensive player on tape than a defensive player but he could potentially come in as an athlete & go from there. He is a talented kid. Just a thought, anyone else care to share their knowledge and opinions?
Anyone got a guess who will be the next BOOM??
How about a Ransom surprise?
AE, really appreciate all the work you do and the reliable information you share! Care to take a stab at a class prediction either on here or in an article? If not, I understand, just wishful thinking!
Has anyone heard any updates on Robinson’s recruitment. I have not heard anything on him in quite some time
