You don't offer a player just to get/secure a commitment from their friends, I don't care where they're from. If Paris Johnson and Darion Henry go to other schools because we didn't offer their friend, then they weren't really committed/that interested in the first place. Day and Pantoni aren't going to be held hostage by a couple of recruits.
Yes. Lejond, even after decommitting, was still very tied with OSU. These recruits talk. It says a lot that Julian is showing up with an OSU recruit that's most likely going to re-commit. Julian probably wants to visit with a future teammate and close friend.
A guard that averages 9 rebounds a game? I don't care what conference you play in, that's impressive.
Once again it goes back to what kinds of players you have on the field. It's not like the Don Brown scheme says to not cover short crossing routes. OSU picked on their weak link all game and it worked.
I'd laugh my ass off if Arizona drafted Murray #1 overall and the Giants passed on Haskins. Two terrible franchises.
Leroux is much more needed than Thomas, that's why he was offered.
He's 6'8" and 320lbs yet very athletic. If he went to camps, had more film, or more time to learn to be a better tackle, he'd be a 5* prospect. I don't get why there's certain whiny fans that complain about his star ranking, it's damn annoying. Those ratings are almost always wrong.
That's not the same thing. a redshirt sophomore has 3 seasons of football left to play, a junior has 2 (or 3 years to play 2)
He's at the halfway point of his eligibility, that's not 'almost gone'
