I would LOVE to see Jameson Williams moved to the H. When he has the ball in his hands he just looks... different. He reminds me of Paris Campbell very much. As a defense I would absolutely HATE to have to account for Williams, Olave and Wilson at the same time!

Also, I'll be rooting for Jaylen Harris and Elijah Gardener to make a push. I have a soft spot for guys who have been here working their butt off preparing for when they get their opportunity.

Crowley screams "star" to me. He appears to have everything im looking for in a back other than experience (ie. speed, quickness, toughness, meanstreak). I think him and Teague will be a great tandem next season but I see Crowley becoming the feature back by mid season. My only real concern with Crowley is his recent knee injury. If that doesn't hamper things, im sold...

I also wouldn't write off Chambers. He reminds me of a slower Etienne. He doesn't quite have that same burst but he has all the other attributes. I believe Chambers is even a little bigger. Definitely a talented back tho.

Gibbs looks like a very good back on tape. My concern with Gibbs is his size. He's listed at 5'11 195 but from seeing him in the AA practices, he looks tiny. Reminded me of McCall. And as much as i like McCall, he hasnt been able to find a way onto the field which i believe is due to his size (and ball security). Hopefully if he does flip to THE, he's as valuable as some believe he will be.

I will be anxious to see who has the better college career. Gibbs, who the fan base seems to be sold on. Or Miyan Williams, who fans moaned and groaned about when we took him. I wouldnt be surprised if its Williams...

I played defense in a scrimmage against Clarett. He scored on his first 5 touches. Im not sure we ever even laid a finger on him.... he was amazing

I would LOVE for Wade to return next season however i'll accept whatever decision he makes. There is obvious value in returning as he could (would) work himself into being a top 10 pick but turning down guaranteed millions doesnt sound ideal either. I would feel so much better about our secondary if Wade returns but his decision has to be whats best for him and his family. 

Go Buckeyes!

I think next years defense turns out to be very, very good. We have a lot of guys who have been here for a couple of years who are entering their college "prime" and have received invaluable experience. Im expecting or D line to lead the charge as we should be tough, deep and disruptive up front. The secondary is athletic and those guys got to get their feet wet this year. the development of banks, brown and riep will surprise a lot of people. I don't know why because we see it every year. young guys have to hit a few learning curve bumps before they blossom. I think our secondary blossoms next season.

I also think the DB's will perform at a high level next year.. I understand they didn't look great at points this season but theyre young and this was incredible experience! Players can improve very quickly from year to year. I think the experience they got this year helps them be a top secondary next season!

I was wrong about Harrison (this year) and right about Crowley. I believe both will play a major role for us next year. I'm also anxious for Jameson williams next year as I believe he will be special. Lastly, for Craig Young not to redshirt, the staff must believe he will help us sooner than later. Anxious to see him play a larger role on defense next year.

For as good as he's been the scary part is you can sense he still has quite a ways to get even close to his ceiling. There's still a sense of rawness watching him play. If (and I think he should) Carton comes back next year he's going to be one of the best players in college basketball. He almost reminds me of a left handed Chris Paul. 

I'm also impressed with Liddell. I think he ends up helping us big down the stretch. I love the rotation of him, Young and Wesson. That's the best big man rotation we've had in a while!

Sanitarian2, I was only being facetious to the author of the article as this article was dramatically written. Ohio State is recruiting maybe better than they ever have so to lose one player, at corner at that, is absolutely theatrical and probably just an attempt for comments (which worked). 

That being said, when you enter the world of college sports you subject yourself to criticism. My ONLY criticism of Phillips is his height. I personally prefer my corners to be 6'0 or taller to have a better chance at guarding the taller receivers. If he can control it or not, its the criticism against him (atleast from me). The "kid" is a high school senior who could potentially be getting roasted by every sports outlet for whatever reason in the next 8 months. Lets not act like I committed a crime for sharing my criticism. He's old enough to handle it (especially for height) and if he's not, he's going to get a rude awakening very, very soon. It's time to take the training wheels off of the 18 year old...

We lost the lil midget slot corner to Utah? This is a blow that DBU will never recover from. Our backups weren't even good enough to start over Okudah arnette and wade. Meanwhile the lil fella was dominating superb high school players. Yea, we're definitely doomed.....
