Just took a look at the top 10 players for this class and noticed that all 10 are either committed or projected to go to either Bama, UGA, Clemson, or OSU. Really feels like college football right now is experiencing a bigger and bigger gap between the haves and the have-nots. Glad to be one of the few haves.
Baker shouldn't have had to apologize. If you don't want another team celebrating a win, don't let them win.
Baker has always been a cocky loudmouth that makes it really easy to hate him.
Both of these things can be true.
It was kind of a foregone conclusion based off of his recent social media activity, but Paris Johnson Jr. officially states he's 100% done with his recruitment and will sign with the Buckeyes.
Hats off to Day for how well he handled that recruitment. Gave Paris the freedom to figure out the best place for him (which just happened to be the best university in the world).
“That's what I'm hoping for,” Studrawa said. “I'm hoping it's not Matt Jones."
Very interesting quote. I guess the Matthew Jones at center ship has sailed and moved on to one of the guard spots. I wonder if that's due to Miller's progress or Jones' ineptitude at the position (or maybe both?).
Ryan Day and Gene Smith's willingness to support these players in their transfers, regardless of their destination, goes to show that they're not just about using these players to win games. They actually care about them and want to see them succeed, whether that's here in Columbus or not. Love it.
Would a misdemeanor marijuana charge completely prevent OSU from bringing him in? It's not like there aren't OSU players that smoke the ganja
Birm suggesting that the staff might look into potentially bringing Cox in. Said he first immediately ruled it out but Cox and LJ have a really good relationship. Could be something to watch and might have an effect on this class's D-line recruiting.
If they think this thread is bad, they should head over to Parts 58 and 59. Yikes
Here's Drennen's film: https://www.hudl.com/video/3/7772895/5bb3bf61a0223b0b7444bfd3
He's a good player. Wouldn't claim that he's not. Shows good hands and some nice elusiveness. But, I think it's a fair assessment to say that you'd hope to see more in a highlight reel from an OSU caliber player. The lack of break away speed is apparent on the film which you'd hope to see from your APB option in the class. Definitely prefer EJ Smith over him but would understand the staff's inclination to want to take Drennen just due to proximity after getting burned by long-distance prospects.
This is the result of people posting the same Bijan updates for the last four days...and also three straight days of meetings with HR.
C'mon Knar. Isn't it obvious? When the Bijan news broke, Day headed out to AZ to try to convince him to stay. It obviously didn't work. But, while out there, Day just shot over to Area 51 (gotta grab some cool tech before the raid on September 20th) and grabbed a cloning machine. He proposed the idea of cloning our current CB room to the guys. Tyreke tweets out that he refuses to be cloned (a clear subtweet at Day and staff). Now, we can only assume that the plan going forward is to simply clone our current guys to spend more time recruiting RBs. OBVIOUSLY, it's not confirmed that guys like Okudah and Wade agreed to this cloning technique. But, we can only hope they do.
It's pretty self-explanatory. I'm actually really surprised I needed to spell this out for you.
Got some breaking news today, folks. I know we've talked about flipping Elias Ricks but I think Tyreke Johnson's tweet implies something different about Ryan Day's plans.

It appears that while renovating the Woody, Day installed a cloning machine. Although Tyreke refuses to be a clone, my guess would be that we will have a plethora of Okudahs and Wades available for years to come. This should make CB recruiting a lot easier going forward. Sorry Elias, you'll have to settle for LSU.
So you're telling us that the #8 WR in the country is gonna have difficulty getting into the class?
Mike Roach finally concedes a CB for Bijan to the good guys. It's over, boys
Here's my thoughts on this: while I obviously find these IG and Twitter accounts annoying, Rakim is choosing to acknowledge them.
Honestly it's all about keeping the spotlight on him. He commits to LSU and throws shade at other fan bases saying it was fun "trolling them". Then, after a few months of being committed, deletes everything LSU-related off of his social media and goes on a visit to Tennessee. And yet, despite all of that, has continually gone on IG and Twitter to dispel any rumors that he's leaving LSU even though his own actions are encouraging the rumors.
Either the dude is playing the game for clout or is really immature and isn't aware the impact his actions have. Either way, I can totally see Hartline not necessarily wanting to add that to his room, talent be damned.
His mom is a big fan of Day and Hartline apparently. She probably reached out to Hartline and shared that Rakim wants out of LSU and Hartline had to let her know we're full.
They really need to start calling these hurricanes something more threatening. How the hell are you supposed to convince people to evacuate while saying, "Look out! Here comes Barry!"
I get that there are a few things going on with Ricks that are a positive for us, but let's not forget that he was reportedly recruiting for LSU at The Opening. It's entirely possible that he's torn between us and LSU and is trying to play both sides of the coin until he figures out a final decision.
Really love this breakdown, Taylor. Keep doing what you're doing in putting out high quality articles like this. I've got a feeling you're gonna be gaining a lot of fans on this site at this rate.
They were the favorite for Knighton before 5 star RB Bowman started expressing interest and began trending that way.
Demetric Warren- "Trust me I know what I'm doing.
You got a link or screenshots? I wanna join in on the schadenfreude
When Harbaugh realizes that a guy with three games of head coaching experience is continuing that Urban Meyer recruiting dominance at OSU:
That's who I'm referring to. Michael O'Shaughnessy signed with the 2019 class as a greyshirt which means he'll be on the team for this season but won't be on scholarship until after the season is over. So, for all intents and purposes, he's basically a 2020 early enrollee which is why I'm suggesting we just count Siebert in our total since his scholarship will be "used" by O'Shaughnessy.
