Awesome.  Seems pretty logical that the staff saw his early season film and decided to make him a priority.  Hope he is a Buckeye, sooner than later.

True.  I'm not saying he is going to flip.  Just saying there has clearly been some communication and at least some mutual 'feeling-out'

I would love to see an article about next years projected lineup as well as a look at the incoming freshman (and maybe a refresher on those who redshirted)

Of course I'd like to see this AFTER NCAA's.  Should be an exciting few weeks.  Go Bucks!

Wow!  Surprised about this despite all the smoke.  Thanks for everything Urban.  7-0 vs Michigan!
