I could be wrong, but I think it's more likely Birm meant that sometimes the OSU program is better off if players they recruit go elsewhere. Or, in this context, it's better for OSU to miss on Simmons than it may have been to land him. I don't know specifically why it's better for us, but I think it's pretty clear that is what Birm meant.

He specifically referenced Harrison and Fuller in the article as guys who Ohio State probably leads for. He thinks OSU has a chance with Hamlin if they can get mom on board. As for Hardman, OSU is "taking a swing," but the southern schools have long been the favorite. 

And I don't know if you meant it the way I interpreted your post, but he doesn't say that they will commit this weekend; only that OSU will ultimately receive their signature on signing day.

I'm sure there's a scenario where Dunn could get some carries, I just don't expect that to be the scenario that plays out. As a fifth year senior with no real experience to speak of, I think the odds are much, much better that he maintains a reserve role while a younger player with a higher ceiling gets the reps. I think of Cam Williams and Raekwon McMillan when I think of Dunn/Weber. There is always the chance that I'll be incorrect as I know Meyer has really changed his thoughts on Dunn over the course of the last season and a half. 

Very good post, by the way. I enjoyed reading your perspective.

I think we may see a committee approach until someone steps in and shows that they deserve more carries. Samuel will be the primary option I imagine at the beginning of the season with Weber getting goal line reps. I just don't see Dunn getting the shot. 

I think we have so many H type players that moving Samuel back to RB makes a lot of sense. I think part of why Dontre is back for 2016 after the cryptic tweets and rumors of transfer are that he was told the plan is for Samuel to go to RB and for him to be at the H.

I'm a PS4 guy.. I always hear great things about Fallout. I love playing Destiny, but it's only fun if you have friends who actively play it as well. It's a cross of MMO, RPG, and FPS. 

I picked up Star Wars Battlefront but haven't played enough to give a recommendation. If you're looking at sports games I'd suggest NBA 2k16. Avoid NBA Live like the plague

Haha. This was my first thought as well before seeing who the poster was

I definitely recognize odeez as posting some Stark County high school football info in the past.

I read this as something related to the Kyrie Irving incident. Was LeCharles initially diagnosed with tendinitis and then played through it and was more seriously injured when he had the ACL injury?? I do know about the staph infection and how that ended his career, I'm solely speaking of the tendinitis/Irving connection.

He's a rhythm shooter and is bound to figure it out at some point. I love that he's not out there chucking and continues to run the offense, as well as be a hound on defense and intercept passing lanes. I never knew he could be this type of player before we traded for him.

It doesn't really suck to lose him or Kraemer, but it sucks to lose him AND Kraemer. You always want to keep Ohio's top players in Ohio, but you win some and you lose some. Hate to lose two of the best in the state

Our 247 composite ranking is 6th, but, you know, I don't want to spoil your hot take. 6th, 7th, whatever we are, it's still a great class. Too many 3*s to be among the top 5 but the staff really believes they found some sleepers and they've shown the ability to develop them so let's not get too caught up in class ranking.
