Darrion Henry’s fall is the largest I can recall seeing. Makes me wonder what’s happened? Poor camp circuit performances? Really strange.
I virtually ignore ESPN’s recruiting coverage. I tolerate them for their coverage of the games, but when it comes to recruiting, Rivals and (especially) 247 blow them out of the water
Turns out, Day knows exactly what he’s doing on the recruiting trail.
but with the 25-scholarship cap, Ohio State would have two more open scholarships
Are they not permitted to “back count” early enrollees anymore?
College football roster management...
I believe early enrollees can be counted “backwards.” So, theoretically (I’m not 100% sure that it still works this way) they could count 8 early enrollees as part of last year’s class and easily go over 25 in this class.
Hoping that I’ll be looking up boom gifs.
On a side note, this caused a reminder that I’m the father of two girls because my first thought when seeing the date of his announcement was, “oh wow, the same day as the Descendants 3 premiere.” #fatherhood
Thomas was criminally underutilized with Cardale under center as well. That 2015 offense spent too much time trying get everyone “touches” instead of sticking to what worked in 2014.
Wideout Michael Thomas is one of the most notable Buckeyes in the NFL today, but he could be considered a fringe candidate thanks to his underutilization in Columbus. Despite shredding the league during his first three season, he totaled just 1,602 receiving yards as a Buckeye, good for 21st in program history.
The reality of that passage still hurts. I'll never understand WTF happened to that 2015 Buckeye squad (hello, Zach Smith). IMO, the '98 team was the only one that was on the same plane when it came to combining talent and experience and yet both somehow managed to stub their toe in the against MSU, at home. Ironically, they both then turned around and were dominant in their remaining games.
Neither of them are shoo-ins, but after reviewing the list posted above, they're longer shots than I realized. I agree with you that Brax should be a no-brainer.
Based on the below list, Hawk isn't in YET.
In an interesting twist, while Zeke will make the OSU HOF hell never get into the CFB Hall, as he was never a first team All American.
This actually is an interesting to be had indeed. What former Buckeye players are most likely to get in down the road? Doss, Little Animal, Hawk, Winfield, Malcolm Jenkins, Springs, Big Bear, Troy, Vrabel and Ike Kelley would be my top 10, based on eligibility requirements.
Joshua Perry's career stats are pretty solid, and I wouldn't gloss over Hyde's career numbers either. Both of those guys are legitimate contenders IMO.
Trust me, it’s a HUGE story to Alabama fans.
If Mike Vrabel, Luke Fickell or Matt Finkes see this, guys I'm just kidding (everyone else - I'm not kidding, shhhh).
How dare you ignore the greatness of Bonhaus and Garnett! In all seriousness, it is amazing how long OSU has been at this level. What makes the Buckeye football program so exceptional is the fact that they've never been through extended periods of irrelevancy. The program has had very few "bad" years (especially over the last 80 seasons), and they generally are isolated incidents. No other program can really say that.
No, not at all. But, it would suck to lose 3 top 10 in-state recruits (one of whom is top 10 nationally), especially from an area of the state that the Bucks need to recruit well.
I’m a little concerned re: their obsessions with LSU. I think the Tigers are a legit threat.
Vandy’s the best team in the country, so it went like I expected. Really wanted to try and get up there for the game, but work schedule and the kids really didn’t allow it.
I think there are many prospects who are holding out, dependent upon what they see on the field from the new regime. I can’t fault them, or the staff, for that.
Unless it’s documented that he indeed requested/demanded the payment be made to the father, I agree.
I think that what he’s saying is that the coach requested/demanded that he pay the father’s player. In the end, it is one man’s word against another, but I just found it interesting.
