UNC with Mack Brown has really began to close down the border in North Carolina. They could turn out to be Clemson’s only competition in the ACC. That is one reason getting Henderson to commit to the Buckeyes was impressive. As for Alabama, they always seem to start slow but eventually end up in the top 5 when all is said and done.
I think Robinson was the only one mentioned that was actually a “take” for the Buckeyes at this point. Ohio State offers over 300 players in any given year and most offers are only made to develop relationships with the recruits.
That tends to be true of all recruits. Seems like when the Ohio States, Alabamas, Georgias offer a recruit, they get a solid bump up in the rankings.
Ahhh, yes, the perennial “Georgia is going to be elite” talk from the media. Georgia plays in the extremely weak SEC East (although Florida is improving). The Georgia offense last year was very one-sided toward the run and overrated. The CFP committee seems to keep them ranked in the top 5 no matter what they do. Kirby Smart is the Calipari of football. Nobody does less with so much talent. Smart is finally willing to do what Saban did several years ago, upgrade the offense to more of a spread offense which will help the defense by keeping them off the field so much so they can rest. Time will tell but, no matter how things turn out, Georgia will remain overvalued by college football analysts.
Very impressive duo committed at this time. Hopefully both sign with us this December (or whenever the NCAA decides to allow recruits to sign their LOI.
The big key here...can Coach Alford sign one big name next year with that back knowing that Pryor and Henderson have two years left, at least, on campus.
I am going with the 2014 Big Championship game against Wisconsin. No ups and downs during the game, just one Buckeyes touchdown after another.
“Give me one scotch, one whiskey, one beer”
If Henderson doesn’t commit, we get Edwards...win/win.
But weren’t the Dead Sea scrolls exposed as fake?
Looking forward to this coming year’s football and basketball seasons at Ohio State. The football team is poised for a monster season as is basketball (and how awesome would the basketBucks be if Kaleb Wesson came back!). Stay safe out there Eleven Warriors brethren!
Well, I guess you can kill two birds with one stone. Die and not only help the nation’s economy, but help Ole Miss too!
Naw, that is a front for funneling money to the families of recruits.
Unfortunately, I have zero respect for a cheating coach, cheating team, cheating program, and a university that is complicit with that cheating.
Lololololol...You had me until you mentioned something about Clemson’s compliance board doing something legit and following NCAA standards.
In his first season as head coach, has produced two Heisman Trophy Finalists
in consecutive years.
Zack: Would Ohio State take Edwards ahead of Henderson if Edwards wanted to commit immediately?
Landers biggest hurdle to overcome is durability. I think he will be an UFA who will get an invite to training camp.
Unless you are shopping at Walmart...
That is the time associated with him when I read about him.
Don't think that Sermon ever ran a 4.37, that is Adrian Peterson type speed.
At least with Sermon we shouldn't have to rush either one back.
but thugs always work themselves out.
Beilein got fired for using that word...
Sermon runs in the mid 4.5 range in the 40 yard dash.
Hopefully Sermon is 100% healed from his knee injury. Huge pickup if so. As for being 2 over the scholarship limit, I would imagine that there are a few players who have already indicated to the coaching staff that they are going to transfer or I don’t think that Coach Day would have added Sermon.
Usually, articles are pre-written and ready for publication. They probably tossed the one about him picking Duke.
As I stated the other day...only so much room at the inn. The Buckeyes were/are not going to tell either Edwards or Henderson to hold off on committing. First come...first served.
