Per Gleitman, the Saturday game for McCord and Harrison was cancelled, so they will likely be in attendance for the Bash as well.
He said he would give Miller a 60% chance of joining the class today.

Apparently Derrick Davis Jr. is visiting UGA this weekend instead of attending the Buckeye Bash. Guess he isn't a realistic target anymore.
Because it's Clemson. We know who they are at this point. You don't make it to 5 straight Playoffs and win 2 championships by accident. We also know who their players are. I hope you remember Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne. I certainly do.
LSU is struggling partially because they lost most of one of the greatest offenses of all time, but also because they lost a ton of talent on defense and changed the scheme. Dave Aranda is a defensive wizard, and Bo Pelini is just an average DC. I'm still shocked that people expected LSU to be any good this year. They'll be back next year though.....they have a ton of young talent that's gaining experience, as well as continuity and no covid-related weirdness.
I've been waiting for this. As a fan of football, what Bill O'Brien was doing to Deshaun Watson was a tragedy. Hopefully they scoop Eric Bienemy up from the Chiefs and transform their team. No excuse for them to be so average offensively with such a talented quarterback.
Well, you should define scared, then. No team is going to blow these Buckeyes out, but Clemson is literally one of two teams in the country that can hang with them. The earlier point is that Clemson usually does sleepwalk through the first games of their season before turning it on late. So, looking at how they're playing now really doesn't indicate how well they'll be playing in December. We have multiple years of evidence of this. They have much of the same personnel that hurt us last year as well. Clemson is a scary team, no doubt about it.
Hafley's squad has its first real test against UNC today. How do we think he'll do?
BIG NEWS: Rivals reporting that a Buckeye recruit summit is set to take place October 24. Jack Sawyer will be hosting a number of guys at his house, and Rivals guys think that up to 15-20 recruits might show up. Tristan Leigh is not confirmed, but likely to attend, based on what his mom said.
Not sure what's happening with Leigh: He visited LSU two weekends in a row but recently picked up a couple Futurecasts to Oklahoma. Could be an opportunity to get back into serious contention.
Hafley's squad is going to pull it out against Texas State. 17 unanswered.
It's bigger than that. What's different in Columbus is the culture and the head coach. Almost every year, the product on the field is greater than the sum of its parts. It's the Urban Meyer, and now, Ryan Day difference. Excellence is the standard in a way it isn't in other places.
Ash is a good coach. It's his first game at a new school, and there's a lot of weirdness surrounding CFB due to CoVid so it's a little early to draw conclusions about his defense.
Alex Grinch on the other hand....
According to some guy on Bucknuts, Gee Scott is a little ahead of the other three freshmen WR at the moment, mainly due to the fact that he's so polished. JSN is really polished too, but Gee Scott's route-running precision is ridiculous and it's obvious that he's trained with Richard Sherman and other NFL guys.
Rivals had an interview with the elusive Tywone Malone, where he gave away almost nothing. He speaks to Larry Johnson every day. One connection that we haven't talked about a lot is that Javontae Jean-Baptiste is a former teammate of his, though they were teammates for only a year. He's spoken to JJB recently about the program and likes what he's hearing.
Okay, so you're a Badger fan that's here to gloat that you got an in-state safety that Ohio State was recruiting. Congratulations. That's a great get for you all. He'll do well under Jim Leonhard, who's a great defensive coach.
You won't get much of a rise from Buckeye fans though. I don't mean for this to be especially snarky, but he wasn't a very prominent name for us. Obviously he was an early offer for OSU and that means that the OSU staff liked him as a prospect, but he committed very early, and didn't make it seem like he was headed to OSU anyway. OSU is also in on a few other highly-ranked safeties nationwide, so this probably won't be a huge loss for them anyways. I think you should go troll PSU fans about Nolan Rucci instead. That'll be more fun for you.
Pat Murphy from Bucknuts is reporting that he's heard from a trusted source that Shaun Wade is coming back!
Respect. Hope to see you guys in the playoffs again, though with a different outcome in mind.
Our crossover game will be the top team in the West. So, probably Wisconsin or Minnesota.
Jerome Baker also having himself a day for the Fins.
Yet again, Ryan Day shows that he is THAT GUY. I can't stop myself, I'm feeling the momentum. I think it's gonna happen folks. I'm so damn excited about this team. So many players and coaches that are just dying to play. I feel so sorry for whoever our week 1 opponent is LOL. This team is so primed and ready to play, there's a ton of pent up energy and excitement just waiting to be released.
