I am 58 yr old lifetime fan. I want total success in all sports but development of our players is essential as well. I support our teams but hope we strive to continue improving at all times. Hating ttun 365 days a year is stupid. Hating them 30 days a year is good. We will be wise to go to pass first QB'S starting in 2017. Recruiting is like water. No team can live w/o it. Moved to Florida 3+ ago. My heart is still in Central Ohio. Go BUCKEYES


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Last national championship but 2002 was great as well. Hiring of UFM was magic as well.
  • NFL TEAM: Minnesota Vikings
  • NHL TEAM: Blue Jackets
  • NBA TEAM: None currently
  • MLB TEAM: Cincinnati Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: Columbus Crew

I agree we should avoid the decommiter. From Central Florida and twice decommitted. If.he commits to the Buckeyes until December when he realizes a third De commitment and suddenly he's a Gator again (close by) and his friends can drive to a game. We can find equal talent.with more dependability. Grimes has always had my direct attention. Geographically Georgia and Clemson would be easy but he's going to.find the perfect environment to develop himself and his game. I.am seriously hoping that's here. In just over 2 weeks we have the NFL draft. That's real world football. Have an ExBuckeye being drafted number 1, a great Buckeye at pick 2 and another elite defensive player going third to Detroit. That's 3 Buckeyes in a row to start the draft. Arnette may go mid to late second round. We have several others as well. The draft has to be the last chapter with recruiting being the first.

Time for a couple of 7.foot away interviews with Mr. Latham and Mr. Spindler. If we got a commitment from each of them we would have arguably the best O linemen in the country.as a group of 4. Elite and accomplished. Come here to help us win big. An interview with these 2 linemen could be quality content. Send a great writer up North and fly one to Florida to talk with Latham - At an entirely safe distance.

All of the best will be coming to Columbus to win National championships. Plural. 3 in 4 years ? Hope so. 2 or 3 were not in the above list even though.they have serious interest and are higher rated. Always try for the best. Spindler, Lewis and Grimes. Egbuka and the 2 highly ranked DLine players. Payne is a 5 star DT from Michigan. Definitely has OSU interest.

We are blessed to have Davis, this strong 5 star guard being our cornerstone. He is quite valuable. Next year will have a new guy. We have current back ups but we also.have Donovan Jackson who's the number 1 guard in the country. 247.com just elevated him to a 5 star. Number 2 Guard Rocco Spindler is a high.4 star who's also interested. Between 8th through 10th is Burton from Kentucky. He's very interested as well. Get the best 2. Great line play for years to come. Getting Latham signed is also so important. Number 6 OT. We need him to join us soon.

You're correct the various services are not identical. The main ones are Espn, 247.com, Rivals and Scout I believe. If you look at the.top 10 and 20.for each they're probably nearly identical. No secret players. Here's the 247.com top 247 players. It now shows our committed #1 OG Donovan Jackson is now a 5 star. That's.great. review where each recruits are. https://247sports.com/Season/2021-Football/RecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=highschool If Lewis has anything against him it's a mystery because he has 41 offers including Clemson, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, USC, Texas A&M and all of the rest in the top 35 teams. Michigan and Penn St., Everyone.except Ohio State. Weird that we are the only ones in on the big secret. Hmmmm https://247sports.com/Player/Terrence-Lewis-46058521

Recruiting is essential. As per 247.com, top remaining recruits that we have a solid chance with are: (in order of ranking) Tuimoloau. DT Egbuka. .. WR Lewis. .OLB Grimes .......CB Latham. .. OT Payne. ..... DT Spindler. OG Adeleye. SDE Dunn. ATH 5 stars and higher 4 stars. On the top 200 shown by 247 we have already got commits from a lot of highly ranked guys. This is the best of the rest with an offer from and serious interest in The Ohio State University. We won't get them all but anything is possible. I am hopeful that we finish strong with.the best recruiting class that we have ever seen. Talent plus great coaching equals championships If your personal favorite isn't listed it's probably because they.were 40 or 50 spots lower on the rankings. Are rankings perfect ? No but they're damned good.

Bediako could be a project but has the size to be an actual center. His 247.page lists him as 6' 11" but lower on the page it notes 6' 9". Either way he is a highly rated big man and Diallo is almost never mentioned. His preferred school is Alabama and they aren't that great in basketball. Seems like someone that with.some strength and conditioning and some great coaches could be a valuable player.

As long as I am alive I will expect and hope that we are in. I would love to face Minnesota because it would be refreshing to see new blood. A program that continues to rise. At least until they meet us in Indianapolis. Their coach has done well in an area where it must be tough to recruit outside of the tristate area. Come here. We have a huge mall.
