Comment 15 Aug 2019

Think you'll enjoy it. He was super open. A really smart kid who's unbelievably competitive. I'll paraphrase here, but he essentially said he told Holtmann he would rather play Michigan on the road than at home because he wants to beat them in front of their fans.

1. In a mix of a ton of teams for Furst - too early in his to say much else. 2. Wouldn't say likely, but certainly possible. 3. Dream 2021 class? Probably add Branham and Furst or another highly regarded big to Meechie and Etzler.

FYI spent a while talking with Meechie Johnson today. Will have a story in a few days (long interview, so it'll take a bit of time to turn it around). 

He did mention he spoke to Malaki Branham on the phone yesterday. Also said he had talked to Jonathan Kuminga about considering the Buckeyes. And though I'd be absolutely shocked if Ohio State turned out to be a factor in his recruitment, that shows the kind of connections he has. Think he'll be nothing but a positive for the Buckeyes on the recruiting trail for that 2021 class.

Don't have any good answer on the Oregon CBs at the moment. Can never underestimate them on the recruiting trail, though. And I wouldn't rule out the other schools, either. Yes, I think Ohio State has done a solid job with him thus far, but he hasn't even taken a visit yet (he will visit on Aug. 30).

Talking to Meechie Johnson around 11 a.m. If anybody has any burning questions you want me to ask him, reply here and let me know. I'll come back and let you know what he says later in the day before writing the story.

Comment 14 Aug 2019

Honestly, it's difficult to tell. Quarterbacks usually practice far away from the reporters, making it difficult to analyze. Plus, we only have 20-45 minutes to watch, and we're both trying to get as much info about other positions.

I can say that he clearly has the best arm. That, at least to me, is indisputable. Can't say much about his play-to-play accuracy, though.

Comment 13 Aug 2019

I agree. Pretty wild to see.

I think you'll see some progress made on 2020 in the next 1-2 months. A lot of visits scheduled for August/September, so names will either heat up or fall down the board soon.

Comment 13 Aug 2019

It depends on how you look at it, and 247Sports has done it both ways.

Bediako is a Canadian, but he plays for a prep school in Ohio. So 247 ranks him as an Ohioan. Last year, Alonzo Gaffney attended a prep school in New Hampshire, and he was still ranked as an Ohioan.

Comment 12 Aug 2019

He hasn't practiced yet this fall in any of the three windows we've been allowed to watch the team. Undisclosed injury. Has spent the time rehabbing/running/stretching on an adjacent field with the other injured players.

Whenever he's back, I expect him to be in the mix with Sevyn Banks and Marcus Williamson as a backup cornerback. Then, in 2020, he'll have a chance to compete for a starting spot.
