I can't see any way Cooper is going to voluntarily shut it down if he's healthy enough to play with the games on deck and a potential spot in the CFP
I'm guessing if they got a commit it's Theo Johnson
Interested to see who gets the other visit outside Ohio State, Oregon, Georgia. He said on Birm's podcast it was likely USC or Michigan. 1st OV was to Kansas State in the Spring
Knighton has decommited from FSU
I agree, I believe he had something like a $17 mil buyout.
First coaching domino has dropped, FSU fires Taggart
haha, I thought the same thing right away.
Unless it's a major injury no way can I see him sitting out games against PSU, Michigan, B1G Title with the CFP on the line.
I believe Mookie Cooper will be there as well, per Birm's podcast.
I thought it was said to be Ohio State, Alabama as the two front-runners?
Mookie was my favorite tape of this class, I was freakin pumped when he committed. I think he (and all 3 of the other WR's) have a real shot at contributing early. The slot WR should be wide open, and I think it'll eventually be a committee of various types instead of just one KJ Hill type. I could see Gill, Ruckert, and Mookie all getting game reps there. Mookie's got major juice. I'm hoping he's finally the electric returner we haven't had since Ginn.
Also, way off base, but Mookie could be a stud slot CB too if he wanted to play on that side. I enjoyed watching his defensive snaps a lot. He's really physical along with great change of direction required for that position.
I believe it'd be Gant. Mitchell has been the backup Will
Per BK, was planning on being at the Wisky game but likely won't be due to the Noon kickoff
Little late on this but just listened to 247's Recruiting podcast from last Friday, Greg Biggins spoke w/ Stroud after Yurcich visited him and his offer went public. Biggins said Stroud is likely playing basketball and won't be graduating or signing early. Stroud said likely the only way he would graduate early is if he were going to a situation where he was going to be competing for a starting job as a Freshman, which wouldnt be at Ohio State. Ohio State, Baylor, and Oregon the 3 favorites as has been reported, and he'll be visiting Oregon with Justin Flowe. Biggins thought if signing day were today, it'd be Ohio State, but this one has a long way to go.
1st team Midseason All-American OG according to PFF
On yesterday's BM5, BK said that Will Shipley (#21 nationally in Composite) would likely be visiting for the Wisky game *IF* it was a later kickoff. Likely wouldn't make it if it was an early kick. We all know now that it's a noon kick. Plenty of others that I'm sure this applies to with high school still playing on Friday nights.
Tom Loy with an Ohio State CB on Jakailin Johnson? I believe the only one in before that was on ND from an ND Insider back in May
Baron's reaction after Fuller makes the pick is awesome. Also, what a garbage penalty on the return. That isn't a classic blind-side de-cleating type block, just a shove on a guy who's about to make a tackle.
I was hoping I'd be wrong on Bradford if he ended up at OSU, but as I've commented on here before I just didnt see it on his tape when they began pursuing him (only watched Jr year tape, havent seen Sr year tape). Yes, he's got great speed but didn't see him finish with power, catch the ball out of the backfield, pass block effectively, or be elusive.
I hope Gibbs is at the top of the RB board. Would also prefer Miyazaki and EJ Smith over Bradford. Still have to keep an eye on Knighton unless the coaches felt burned, he was at Miami this past weekend. I know it's a matter of being close to Deerfield Beach for him, but Miami and FSU are both trainwrecks.
Gibbs shot up a couple hundred spots in 247’s rankings
Seibert's already been reported as a GS. Vimahi doesnt count on the 85 if he takes his Mission as has been planned. 19 Seniors, Pryor transfer, Chase/Okudah/Dobbins definite early entrants. That's 25 spots right there. Only leaves three left. Not hard to see three more between early entrants (Wade, others?) and transfers.
Vimahi won’t count toward the 85 as well if he goes on his Mission as has been reported
Pretty awesome that Gee Scott and JSN making additional trips in this weekend.
Pretty loaded visitors list on top of the guys we already knew. Per Birm: https://lettermenrow.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/ohio-state-buckeyes-football-recruiting-2020-commits-visiting-michigan-state-game/
Man the offensive line was tremendous. Look at the pass pro and run lanes in these clips.
Awesome work, Zack. 16-17 400's?? That's insane
