I've said it before, I like the guy based on our limited interaction. He's been cool with me. I just think he's really off on this one. But again if he's saying that the kid ends up at Ohio State then I guess his pick is very likely to be correct.
I would advise no one click on that link or pay any attention to what he's saying.
Wrote about that yesterday actually, but yes Wolfe is the one to watch for 2021. I still think Egbuka and Burton are worth paying attention to and then there are a few 2022 guys as well. Didn’t even mention Burke in the article. Don’t think anyone saw that coming until Saturday evening when things started to leak.
Yeah Egbuka is the more likely of the two to hold off.
Yes on Jackson. Harris just seems like someone who ends up at LSU or Bama. But that’s really just a hunch on my end.
They'll keep recruiting him but my guess right now is he ends up elsewhere.
Honestly I think it's probably all three of the top-rated guys they've offered: Austin Jordan, Domani Jackson, and Denver Harris. Though you obviously can't pencil either one of them into the class at this point. I thought the Jackson thing could create a strong case to take Davies but it doesn't seem like that's gonna play a factor.
They are 100 percent willing to take another defensive back even after Burke commits.
Yeah that one is done unless the staff changes their mind like they did with the other one the other day. Didn’t even mention him in the latest commit watch because we had been told they were waiting to evaluate the remaining corner options (outside of Hancock who could obv commit anytime he wants).
Probably right in the middle honestly; five or six, which I believe is what it was on.
Ha I don't know. I just try to piece things together the best I can based on what's happening around the country and who I talk to. I never speak with recruits or do interviews or anything like that. And honestly I think most of the time interviews give very little info. It's more about what's happening behind the scenes with the school than what a kid says in an interview with a media member from whatever site.
Yes, I agree with that. I think part of the concern is that he's not as active as some other guys when it comes to communicating with the current commits. But that's not always a big deal really and sometimes it's just the kid's personality as opposed to lack of interest or anything like that.
I have never done this stuff full time and have no desire to, but I know the ones I talk to most are Birm, Bill Greene, and Marc. They're all great and are genuinely good dudes. Birm has been a really good friend for damn near two decades. I've DM'd with Alex as well and he's always been cool too. That's outside of our own site, of course.
FWIW if I could do it all over again (which I'm now unable to do so) I wouldn't have lowered my confidence on Latham quite as much as I did.
Haven’t heard but my assumption is it’s either that or IMG.
Can’t embed right now but this is good news.
FYI you won't be seeing any crystal balls from me anymore.
I wanted to let you all know that the decision was made to limit Crystal Ball predictions to just the 247Sports network now. With our volume of in-house experts following the Scout merger and the drop off in participation from out of network, we decided to move in this direction. We appreciate and thank you for your participation in this product over the years and hope you all have a great holiday weekend. Stay safe.
A little bit yeah. I don't think Ohio State ever totally stopped recruiting him like many thought (myself included). And no not on Malone's level. Probably the Wiliams category if I had to guess.
Seems like a guy they’re keeping warm in case things go south with some other DL. Think he’s really good though and definitely Ohio State caliber.
OU insider has been telling them for two weeks now how serious Monkell Goodwine's interest is and how he's been taking all these virtual visits. Some of the fans have been speculating all week that he's a silent commit. And then today.....
I wouldn't pay too much attention to that tbh.
May be some movement here soon.
edit: probably gonna have to wait so disregard
I think it’s a combination of Alabama doing a really good job recruiting him and some family stuff that’s going on as well. I imagine getting him back on campus could help, but it’s not like he’s been visiting Tuscaloosa over the last few months either.
My pick is still on Ohio State. Just not as confident as before. I know Marc and Bill Greene haven’t expressed much concern and those guys obviously are two of the very best to listen to. We’ll see what happens. Not sure when this one will come to an end really.
