That would have been better than "I've been contacted by a rock-'n'-roll show"

I really don't know how any "major announcement" ever fools anyone on April 1.

Apples and oranges. Mack is a WR, Ruckert is a TE. They are different positions with different skillsets and different roles in the offense.

Ruckert is and has been an excellent TE for us, and he'll be an excellent TE in the NFL because of what he learned here.  

He could have gone to MSU and been a feature of their offense, but he wouldn't have much success at the next level because the NFL doesn't need big, slow receivers.

It's really not about recruiting.

TEs know their role and they know what they sign up for when they come to a school heavy in offensive talent like OSU.  They will learn their role well and likely go on to do it for multiple seasons in the NFL.  The fans complain infinitely more than the players in regards to how many passes they catch.

If they just want to be a relatively big/slow receiver, they can always go to a place like MSU or Iowa.
