Maybe it’s just me but I’m looking forward to the start of the HS football season to see which RBs step-up, shine, and become the focus of the Buckeye coaches.

Comment 09 Aug 2019

I'm not an insider nor am I an expert.  A friend of Lloyd's (DeMatha classmate) told me yesterday he would be shocked if Lloyd backed off his verbal to SoCarolina.  He said most of Lloyd's friends knew he was heading to SoCarolina even when many felt he was leaning UGA.  I hope he is incorrect.  Lloyd would be a home run for the Buckeyes.

Wiltfong with the CB for Zach Evans to UGA.

Tyler Baron (my guess).  BK mentioned he is working on setting an OV this Fall.

1. Add a Corner -- Ricks or Ringo would be ideal but they both seem to be longshots.  Maybe they circle back to Henry Gray or Ryan Watts.  Although he's not a CB, I'd love for them to find a spot for Paige.

2. Add to the D-Line -- Cowan is probably the most likely.  Since it is not a huge need for this cycle tOSU should swing for the fences (Evans, Grimes, KBJ, Hardy, etc.)

3. Work like hell to keep Knighton.  From what I've read South Florida kids are always tough to hang onto (see Jordan Battle) since it is so easy to visit local schools during the season.  BG believes Knighton will commit to tOSU but it will be a fight to hold onto him.

South Carolina is also in the running for Bigsby.  He would pair with Lloyd.  That is also a nice haul.

Alabama is sitting well with Zach Evans and Roydell Williams. 

Comment 10 Jul 2019

One thing to remember is that there will be decommits.  Like it or not, it will happen.  tOSU's recruiting classes have averaged 4.4 decommits per year for cycles 2015-2019.  Those decommits come in various forms and for various reasons but it is naïve to think it will not happen this year as well. 

I agree with you, Knarcisi.  It is a huge advantage to have verbals from 20+ recruits.  I also feel this is a long way from being complete. 

Comment 10 Jul 2019

Givler mentioned in a comments section (sorry I don't have the link handy) that he felt certain they would add another Corner even if they are unable to land Ricks. 

Comment 01 Jul 2019

Givler set the Over/Under of July commits at 8.5 (to include 1 or 2 from the 2021 class). 

Wow!

Not certain if it was mentioned earlier but Nevada gave Fryar ===Buckeye.

Comment 26 Jun 2019

Landing Fryar would be one heck of a way to finish off the OL class this cycle.

I was reading the PSU boards earlier in the week.  They were all but certain Fryar would be a Nittany Lion. 

Comment 26 Jun 2019

Wiltfong with the CB for Josh Fryar to the Buckeyes.

Seems really weird to me.  Didn't BG say earlier this week there was no way Fryar ends up in the class????

Comment 25 Jun 2019

Per Tuesday's Boarding House, Ransom has "silently committed" to Ohio State.  The OSU staff is "supremely confident" they have him in the class.

Comment 21 Jun 2019

Not sure I’d consider that “great news” on any front  

A) Assault is not “great news” (does not benefit OSU in any way)

B) If he was dismissed then Milton wouldn’t be playing with him anyway (does not benefit OSU in any way)  

C) if he was dismissed then the university and coaching staff did the proper thing. (Does not benefit OSU in any way). 

Comment 21 Jun 2019

I'm a bit surprised the insiders are expecting several commits (other than Clark Phillips) this weekend.  It seems to me that most of these players enjoy putting together a commitment video and releasing it when they can capture a few moments of the limelight.  More power to them.  They should cherish the spotlight if they have the opportunity.  I hope I am incorrect but I think tOSU will see more activity over then next 10-14 days than they will this weekend simply because it will allow the recruits time to put together their announcement video.

Comment 18 Jun 2019

I feel Marshawn Lloyd's selection of USouthCarolina triggered a butterfly effect which rippled through the RB class this cycle.  He was pegged by nearly all experts as a lock to Georgia.  It would have been interesting to see how the dominos fell if he indeed selected UGA.  One would have to imagine it would have impacted Milton's potential interest in UGA.
