  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

I see what you're getting at and applaud your attempt to discourage posters from labeling a teenager simply due to a report. I'd like to hear a little more, too, but when two powerhouses pump the brakes on the #1 player in the country for any reason, it's noteworthy.

Love the idea of taking a couple of days, which is like a whole season in social media calendar time, to decide and, in this case, take back the thunder in his announcement.

Agreed. It's also probably pretty boring and predictable to write the same preview every year with the Buckeyes coming out on top. Not saying he's doing it for sales, but unique angles sell.

That would be quite a development. He doesn't strike me as the kind of kid who plays games. Could be Lejond hyping a conversation, of course, but just getting him back on campus would be a coup.

I think Garrett Wilson is going to be doing some recruiting every Saturday, just like Chris Olave did in late November last year. When recruits see a way to the field early, it has to add to a program's allure.

Smith-Njigba jumped 162 spots in Rivals' rankings just recently, but I think you may be inadvertently suggesting that we, as Buckeye fans, may be considering him a third fiddle to Fleming and Scott. Probably true as he committed some time ago and the other two are commanding more headlines and posts right now.

Great post and question, Spooner. I think we need a bell cow back like Adams and, if we added Knighton OR Smith, that would be a very good RB class. You're absolutely right about Alford's recruitment of Milton and Robinson. There is not much more that we can do and we may end up landing Robinson. If that's the case, do we push for Adams or one of the two APBs (Kinghton or Smith)?

Yeah, seems like he's just reading into the "it's a wrap" and "final" language a bit too much (or, more likely, a bit too early). Seems like an honest mistake more than trying to scoop anyone.

Probably too early to tell and it would take some sanctions against the program such as a postseason ban to have any impact on recruits. I wouldn't hold your breath.
