If Clark Phillips decides on Thursday to go to Utah, it could mean that opens the door for an offer to Columbus Walnut Ridge Cornerback/Slot Receiver Qian Magwood. Outstanding talent, high character, academic plus, wants an Ohio State offer, under-recruited player. Senior highlights and article below:
Of the RB list, strongly prefer Tre Bradford and his sprinter speed to go the distance that scares the heck out of a defense. Teague has pure speed but Crowley and Chambers are more chain mover types even though Crowley can break off long runs.
Marcus Hooker, imo, should be a RB/H-Back, not a safety. Marcus was a tremendous playmaker in HS on the offensive side of the ball and that is being wasted at safety. The Buckeyes have recruited the safety position well and could afford to move him over to offense.
Don't fret, we still have Meg and Lendack the Great!
In the profession, they call this a "Compromise Choice".
These never work out.
It's beginning to feel like the Buckeyes will only add one true RB in this 2020 class.
There are some good options at RB in 2021.
The Buckeyes need a pure speed running back. Lawrance Toafili would fit the same as Knighton. I would still be fine with Trayanum too just because imo he is a stud player.
Would not be surprised to see Fleming go to Clemson because if he went to Ohio State, a B1G rival, that would be a very difficult environment for him and his family at home. T. Pryor did it but that is the only five star that did. But Clemson is in the ACC and does not play PSU so it changes the in-state response to a somewhat lesser degree. Like Deandre Swift going to Georgia.
Can the white bus please pick up Sam Pittman and take him away......far far away.
A cornerback that I would like to see the Buckeyes recruit hard is Carrington Valentine from Cinci Moeller.
Believe he is just as talented and athletic overall as the other corners that have recently visited imo.
Heard the Rivals interview with Kaiir Elam. Elam said he has been to Ohio State three times already. IMO Elam is waiting to see if starting corners Damon Arnette & Kendall Sheffield announce they are leaving to enter the NFL Draft sometime after the Rose Bowl. If they declare they are moving on and I believe they both are, then I see Elam taking an official visit to Ohio State. Elam knows that the Buckeyes do not have a Corner in the 2019 class and if both starting corners leave, then it's possible his interest in the Buckeyes becomes stronger. Elam's seven team final list is GA, FL, Tenn, Oregon, Colorado, Miami & the Buckeyes.
Georgia folk saying that 2019 Cornerback Tyrique Stevenson faxed in his signed LOI today to Georgia but will let him announce at the Army All American Game on January 5th. That would give GA two Cornerbacks in the 2019 class.
Let's see if the Buckeyes can get Kaiir Elam interested. Georgia & Florida were the two he was mainly interested in but Florida also signed two Corners already and are one of the favorites for cornerback Chris Steele (CA) along with Oregon to battle it out.
Two players the Buckeyes may have an interest in are:
Jay Ward, Cornerback, Moultrie GA (offered)
Tyler Foster, TE, Pickerington North
The latest is that Nick Broeker will sign on Thursday as it is pushed back a day.
Bigtime, Bigtime, Bigtime, Go Bucks !!!!!
Way to go Cade......Congratulations !!!!!
Franklin is a used car salesman and very good at it.
Franklin is the one who called himself a "psychopath" after the Buckeyes beat him at home this year at his post game uncontrollable Q & A meltdown rant.
Buckeyes looking to overhaul the LB position and with good reason.
Since it's all coming out that Zach Harrison is going to ttun maybe the Buckeyes circle back to Gabe Newburg DE Northmont. Newburg may want to de-commit from ttun since they will have four other DE's in the class with Harrison plus the three DEs ttun took last year. Also, last time I checked, Newburg doesn't seem to make any ttun game visits but Northmont is still alive in the playoffs winning Friday night.
O-Line changes that need to be made: Move Jordan back to Left Guard. Josh Myers at Center. Josh Alabi or Davis at Right Guard.
Buckeyes will be in the "Chicken Bowl" this year.
Jim Tressel is on standby.
yes, the O-Line can't run block. Time to make personnel changes at O-Line and LB..
Nick Saban would never let anything like this happen.
You have to recruit rough, tough football players like all the felons Urban had at Florida. Urban is now recruiting real academic oriented student/football players and you become soft Northwestern.
Tommy Eichenberg plans to take game visits to Ohio State & ttun.
This is Ohio State, this is the Buckeyes, this is O-H-I-O - Let's Go.
