Nope and it gets a little confusing when they oftentimes look for just general DL who can play numerous spots. Only thing I feel pretty confident in saying is that Tuimoloau and Malone are Tier 1 DL guys. To be clear on Adeleye, he's likely still a top guy on the line. There just weren't any questions as to where Robinson best projects like there are for Adeleye. Also not a good idea to publicly take shots at Ohio State's academics.

Not a whole lot honestly. One person I talk to told me I need to get a pick in for Ohio State but a few others said it's impossible to read him and he's nowhere close to a decision. The other contenders aren't exactly problematic right now (no PSU and UM is nice) but Rutgers is a concern IMO.

I don't know if I'd say Bradley is most likely out. My prediction would probably be Sawyer, Hall, JT, Adeleye and honestly not sure yet on the other one or two. I'd love to get Tywone Malone but that's another one where I've gotten some conflicting info. They can get Travion Ford but I know they aren't ready to push on that one and I'm not even sure he's gonna end up on the line.

Perhaps the weirdest thing about the whole Wilcoxson situation is the dude in this thread who's been DM'ing with him telling him the 11w people don't like him. Recruiting can be so strange sometimes. Yikes. 

Comment 25 Mar 2020

Been getting conflicting info on that one, so I have no idea what to expect. Maybe he just truly doesn't want to be at Florida? Given all the transfers and crazy stuff that goes on these days, I can't really knock a kid for decommitting or changing his mind. I've long assumed they'd like to get him on campus first, but it's sounding more and more like it could be sooner than that. We shall see.

It used to have a scoring system similar to what you suggested and then it randomly changed. It would show how many points each pick was worth based on how long ago it had been submitted.

I don’t really know anything about Duane. Think I used to read some of his offensive line articles back in the day. Sucks about the health issues. Hopefully the dude gets better. 

Comment 23 Mar 2020

More of a general sentiment really. Not great to give specifics to random people via DM, but I have no clue what exactly happened (if anything). I know it’s been an issue for some kids in the past but I can’t recall Ohio State ever losing someone because of it. Know of a few that delayed things a bit though. 

Comment 23 Mar 2020

My take is that sometimes these kids want at least a smidge of suspense. Occasionally the “sometime this week” timeframe should be enough for people (especially the media). When media outlets or whoever else release more than what a recruit wants out there it can cause a rift between the kid and a coaching staff. Will be unfortunate if and when Ohio State loses a commit over something like that.

I don't get this..."At some point the WR room is going to start looking crowded" What does this mean? He knows literally every receiver that will be on the team if he commits. What is the mystery? Either the WR depth chart is an issue, or it isn't....right? Nothing is changing with this over the next week, month, or year...

And not directing this at AE, obviously you have great sources...just seems like a weird thing to have in the back pocket. So OSU has a big lead now, but once he realizes the WR depth chart, they might not?

I’m saying that Stellato is expected to announce before Egbuka. I’d say 6-7 is about the ideal number they’d want for WRs over two classes. Stellato could potentially put them at seven and that’s surely something Clemson would be using against them. I’m sure Hartline would love to add them both, but I have no idea how realistic that is when you have more pressing needs elsewhere (DB, DL).
