I wish fans would stop star / rank watching. Watch their film, I've seen 5* / 4* kids look meh compared to alot of 3* who end up being captains, all-conference, and vital players during their playing time. Trust the staff to know what they see, because alot of time coaches have conversations, face to face meetings, and other numerous factors, which us fans don't have any idea what is going on behind the scene. Trust the process, celebrate the class, and be excited for these kids being Buckeyes.
How it is possible these threads get hijacked with debbie downers all the time. Yes, Clemson is recruiting at an insane level at the moment, that's what the reward for 2 of the last 3 NC brings. Produce on the field under Day and tOSU always recruits with the best of them. Aside from the concern at Clemson, fantastic to see McCord visiting, hopefully locking down McCord along with Harrison gets the 2021 class rocking. First time I've seen film on Toafilli, that kid can flat out play, great to see he's visiting with the family for a long weekend. Toafilli along with Milton or Robinson is a heck of a RB class.
I'm surprised the NBA and US Basketball system hasn't adapted to the EU way of signing players (13 to 16-year-olds) into a farm club system. However, with the NCAA being a glorified farming system for free, I am not surprised, to be honest, once you think about it.
Yeah, it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.
Get rid of the one and done rule. Switch it to the MLB / CBB rules of allowing the players to choose between going into the draft out of HS or waiting 3 years to reenter the draft. With it allows them, if not, drafted to sign with a college and wait those 3 years too. Also, as others have said before allowing student-athletes to sell their likeness during the time in college if they choose that route.
Agreed, I think they kill Captain America with having Bucky take over in future films. I think RDJ as Iron Man will slowly be passed on after establishing new characters such as X-Men and F4 characters, onto Riri Williams aka Ironheart or Iron Lad aka Nate Richards (adds an interesting twist and storyline for F4 films). Which oddly enough could set up the appearance of Kang the Conqueror too. I think Nebula is definitely set up to sacrifice herself against her father to revenge her sister.
I know this is mainly for predicting who dies in Endgame, but I came across this fantastic video by Charles Villanueva on a Supercut leading into Avengers: Endgame. Highly recommended viewing.
I have never commented on these threads much, but in the past few these threads have become a cesspool of overreactions and fighting back and fore. Can we just get back to enjoying bits and information on what's going on around Ohio State recruiting? Enjoy the ride and celebrate whoever wants to be a Buckeye.
247 rank watching is hazardous to any fans health, it's best to view our new signees and celebrate them joining the Buckeye brotherhood, all will be good with the world and these rankings will be a thing of past once they hit the field and show us why they were recruited and signed with the best university in the world.
On Rivals new 2020 rankings I counted eight 5-star kids Ohio State has a legit chance in landing. That's crazy.
Probably because of Oklahoma State's win over West Virginia
I love how they have the 2001 Miami team as 3rd on the list and don't realize a lot of those players were still on the 2002 Miami team, which the so-called "worst" title-winning team beat in double OT, but whatever I guess.
What I find amazing is the consistent success of recruiting under Urban Meyer and it has led some in the fanbase into thinking anything outside the top 2 in team rankings is a failure, especially the stargazers and their "only a 3-star" reaction to some recruits. Its all about how you see the strength of each class, with this year's WR haul (including Jeremy Ruckert) and next year getting Jack Miller along with the offensive line recruiting allows for the perfect storm in having unbelievable weapons for the next 4 to 5 years. Truly exciting years for the Buckeye fanbase.
Even if LSU is in the SEC compared to the AAC for Cincinnati. I wouldn't touch that program when it comes to the QB position.
No. 33 - Derrius Guice, RB, LSU (Alt Pick - Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan)
No. 35 - Connor Williams, OT, Texas (Alt Pick - Derrius Guice, RB, LSU)
No. 64 - Tim Settle, DT, Virginia (Alt Pick - Brian O'Neill, OT, Pittsburgh)
I know I'm most likely going to be completely wrong, but this would be my ideal 2nd round for the Browns.
No doubt, just disgusting.
