Yeah I mean if anyone would expect Green to come here and play like Jeff Okudah because he was a highly rated kid from Texas, then they're going to look foolish. But Ohio State needs another cornerback, so it would make sense to look into him in my opinion. Obviously Ricks would be the dream scenario, but getting a guy like Green would be a fine addition as well as long as your expectations are realistic. I can't really comment on why he's leaving Texas. No clue if it's about playing time, the coaching change, or what exactly.

lol I get it.....but right now there's no reason to think Elias Ricks is transferring anywhere. He isn't even in the portal at the moment. But hey maybe LSU gets hit with some sanctions, he doesn't like the new staff, and actually does decide to bolt.

That pretty much sums up what I’ve heard. I know some have said he may be best as a slot corner or even safety. I admittedly didn’t see much of his play.

I've talked to him maybe a couple of dozen times dating back to right before Mike Weber signed. Not a regular line of communication really. He's always been extremely cool though and I can see why people like the guy so much.

I talk to Zack every day and same with Birm as he is one of my best friends. I consider Marc Givler and Bill Greene to be friends as well. There are only 2-3 people at Ohio State I talk to, but I trust them very much. Only ever talked to a handful of coaches, and I don't talk to the kids or the families really. I leave the interviewing stuff to the professionals in the field. I got close with a few people back in the day and they now write for Rivals/247 and cover various regions. I talk to them sometimes too but I try not to bug people about things. A lot of times I just try to read the tea leaves and piece things together as best I can.

Yeah I agree, he does seem eager to decide. Seems like Harbaugh is leading the recruitment right now. That’s probably not a great thing for UM considering how much the kid seems to care about his position coach (and understandably so).

Comment 18 Jan 2021

I haven’t heard of him being against Ohio State necessarily. If that were true I kinda doubt we’d be where we are right now. I know there’s one or two coaches UM is looking at who already have some sort of a relationship with the kid/family. I imagine if they hire Banks or Clinkscale that would help things for them. Not entirely sure where things stand with their coaching search. Haven’t followed it too closely.

Still hearing very positive things on Will Johnson. Still not getting my hopes up too high, though. We'll see who Michigan hires to replace Zordich and when something is finalized there.
