I guess so. It was just the first word to come to mind after seeing stx use it so much lol
Exactly this. I would trust Mark Pantoni and Larry Johnson Sr’s preferences over the starhanderouters.
Just remember that Clemson’s ILB commit Jeremiah Trotter Jr. was only a take for them because Reid Carrico, who was on the top of their board, committed to Ohio State. Meanwhile, according to the composite Jeremiah Trotter Jr. is ranked 35th overall and Reid Carrico is ranked 73rd overall. Despite what the rankings would tell you, I’m willing to bet Dabo would rather have Carrico than Trotter Jr.
New 2021 rankings are out! Kyle McCord has gained his composite fifth star. On the other hand, Ben Christman dropped out of the top 100.
Probably too little too late for Clemson. I don’t think Coombs will be missing on many recruits during his tenure as DC.
Clemson insider CBs Barrett Carter to Georgia.
Exactly. Only allowing one pick would just guarantee that everyone puts their picks in twenty minutes before any recruit announces. Most of the time, CBs are accurate in showing where a kid is trending at the time.
Basically, Wingo is a better LB right now, but Cody Simon is more athletic and a fair bit faster. Simon was graded the most athletic LB at The Opening IIRC.
Looks like we’re done here! Bye bye 2020. On to 2021.
Edit: Forgot that Wypler dropped to 107, so it is a net loss of one.
Mitchell Melton gained his well-deserved forth star!
Means Ohio State will finish with
3 five stars
14 four stars
8 three stars
We’ll know soon enough, but I’d assume our composite five stars will be Fleming, Johnson, and Smith-Njigba. Then, Stroud will be 45-50 and Gee Scott will be 60-65.
Seems like Gee Scott Jr won’t be in the top 32. I’d bet he’s around 35-40.
Birm said on Talking Stuff that Cam Martinez will probably finalize his commitment in the coming days.
Clemson fans are adamant that Korey Foreman committed yesterday.
I believe it was on Ohio State. I guess it’s another Ohio State Alabama battle.
Tom Loy put in a CB for Beaux Collins to Clemson.
Final 247Sports rankings coming Tuesday, January 28th.
I think the only job he’d take is Cincinnati HC, but they seem to want Marcus Freeman to succeed Fickell there, so you are probably right. It’ll be awesome having such a great recruiter and coach like Coombs stick around for a few years at least!
I don’t think there will be much panicking about 2021’s DB haul to say the least.
Fresh off an NFL playoff run, Coombs has, without a doubt, a better resume than any other secondary coach in college football. I would imagine Ohio State will get to pick and choose whichever DBs they want signed the next couple of years.
Honestly, Lettermen Row’s top source is probably Ryan Day himself. They are very closely connected to the program.
Last year, the 247 rankings were finalized on January 23rd, so maybe this week.
I don’t think there’s anything cryptic about it. They’re paying players a lot of money under the table and that’s why some of these guys don’t get contacted by Ohio State or vice versa.
When he went on the Zach Smith podcast, they talked a while about all the stuff that goes on in the south, and how Ohio State just is not going to get some of these players no matter what because of the questionable stuff that goes on at those schools.
Yeah, McCarthy was angry because he said he was told he couldn’t commit until the summer, then McCord committed in the spring. He said he felt like he was just used to pressure McCord to commit. Sure seems like he was the backup plan.
If they didn’t want him badly, they would not have taken him in the first place.
AE, is this a good sign for Will Shipley as well since they’re close?
