these verbal "commitments" are not binding in any way for either side. There is no benefit to him verbally agreeing to play for Oklahoma... bc Oklahoma has no obligation to uphold its verbal "scholarship offer".
This is the only time you with see "#1" in front of *ichigan.
I dunno... looked like he got pretty "high" too, before hitting the floor.
Do they also consider not being Tech Falled as winning the match? not sure how someone who gets completely dominated has the nerve to continue talking trash.... idiots.
Does this kid actually listen to the words that come out of his mouth? I am hoping he just wants to enjoy being in the spotlight due to smack talk, since he can't get their by his wrestling ability.
This kid's dad is truly an asshat. I am all for trying something new, but not at the expense of your kid's success.
I was really hoping Conley would have still been available when the Steelers were up. They biggest need IMO is DB, after that would have to be RB depth as Bell cant stay healthy and not sure what to expect from Williams
Not to be too negative... but Baugh is far from a 1st round talent IMO. He has above average hands, but his blocking is awful and lacks effort much like his inconsistent game. I hope he continues to mature as he has done the past couple years. But unless he makes a big improvement in blocking and effort I see him as a mid to late draft prospect.
A bit premature here (no pun intended. If this turns out to be a scam I will laugh, but a bit early to make a joke about it IMO.
Think you hit the nail on the head here. Browns are constantly worried about next year that they lose site of the hear and now. As you mentioned they just drafted a "solid" safety but passed up on Hooker who is being compared to Ed Reed (one of the all time greats). So Browns pass on a possible once in a lifetime talent, for a solid player.... if that doesn't scream mediocrity than I am not sure what does.
Good players typically do not pan out at the next level. Hell even great college players have a hard time succeeding in the NFL. I understand your thought that he was playing all over the field which was likely two reasons: he was better than the average talent all around him, and he wasn't good enough to master any position enough to be a game changer in that one position. Jack of all trades, master of none. I will give you he has talent and athletic ability which is interesting but not at the expense of a 1st round price.
I understand this is a sport forum, but regardless of how sad it is to see a kid throw away his athletic potential, it is just simply sad and disturbing another women had to be assaulted before something more serious is being brought down on him.
Not trying to pick on a kid... but for the love of God can parents please teach these kids what committed means! I am not saying he can't look around, I think he should. But they need to understand that you cannot be "committed" yet still want to look around and have uncertainty. I can only imagine what these younger generation relationships are like if their understanding of commitment is... "I have a girlfriend I am 110% committed to, but I still want to go out on dates with other girls to be sure my current girlfriend is the one". Geez I sound like an old geezer.. end of rant.
#1 just wait for Clemson to get back to Clemsoning again this year
#2 kids make emotional comments during emotional events
#3 I feel OL high star targets have the highest % of "bust", not saying the kid wont be great... but OL ratings seem to be the most inconsistent to me.
10000% agreed. I understand coaches hate fumbles, but he didn't even have a carry until mid way through the second quarter. so he had no rhythm, feel for the game at all. Not to mention he ran his ass off, and one of the fumbles I believe hit a knee or something like that in which no RB at any level could have held on. I might be making excuses, but Weber is not a habitual fumbler, and I gave more blame to coaches for not having a plan to let him ease into the biggest game of his young career.
As long as the Buckeyes can bring the momentum from the B1G tournament they should perform very well. I was fortunate to catch a couple of their dual meets throughout the season and although they have talent they lost a couple duals because they didn't get those last second or close point victories. At the B1G tournament they closed matches very well, so long they continue that toughness they will finish very well if not on top.
For me, I think there is no issue with a kid not going to a camp to earn an offer. If he is comfortable with his potential opportunities that have made effort to win him over why try to convince someone they need you, unless you are coveting that specific offer. It doesn't make a kid any less driven or mean they are unwilling to work, its a two way street and for some kids they need more commitment from a school then "come and earn your offer", when they have other schools that see their value from an on field production stand point.
Not sure if this is a random general statement or directed at Asamoah, but I don't recall him saying he would not camp at OSU. Per both articles his top schools include the programs that he has had the closest communication with, and nothing about refusing to camp or try to earn offers.
Kid is super athletic and will only get better this year. I just asked a buddy of mine about him recently, who is very close to Asamoah. He said he would love an OSU offer but for him its all about relationship. Although Fickell at UC was presumed to be the favorite, I was told he is most likely leaning towards Penn St right now, and once he commits there is very little chance he will change his mind.
why is everyone so fixated on getting a "big name" DT. DT has not been a lacking position for OSU for a very long time as far as production on field. We may not have show stoppers, but they have performed very adequately and even well for several years. Someone please tell me the last time we lost in the trenches due to lack of talent at DT?!
I am fine with OSU not buying into gimmicks and BS. The program sells itself, and I am not sure we are looking for the caliber kids that prefer trips instead of focusing on football. *ichigan's approach speaks volumes to their insecurity and inability to bring kids in on football prowess alone. Winners win, while losers deflect.
He has a better chance of beating OSU next year then winning either of those awards!
You are forgetting T. Sprinkle being back from injury which should be huge. I think our DL will be good enough to compensate for a lack of experience at MLB. As for Hubbard, he is a DE, he would not do well at MLB... too tall and not fast enough IMO. Not saying he is slow overall, just not the speed or agility needed at the MLB position. Hubbard is going to ball out at DE this year.
Winfield being my all-time favorite... you cant forget S.Springs & M.Doss as 2 other greats from DBU.
Seems like he decommitted on a whim and the coaching staff feel if there is a shot, hit while its hot. Teenagers change their minds every 30 seconds.
