Exactly - why didn't he get a psychiatric evaluation and submit it? His mother is in the mental health care field. I do a lot of personal injury litigation work - medical experts are easy to find and retain. Perhaps they didn't really believe it themselves. Or maybe they did have an evaluation done and it came back negative. a layperson is not qualified to make a self-diagnosis (a least not in the legal field).

Maybe its generational but I see a lot of younger people on the internet melt down in situations where I truly believe they need to "man up" - too much "safe space" mentality for my money. If you hurt someone's feelings you are the bad guy? Does everybody deserve to be believed no matter what? Does that go for Harbaugh too? You can't have it all.

Even if he had depression why is that a reason for a waiver? Won't he still have depression if the waiver is granted? How is the waiver going to alleviate his condition? If the only reason he has depression is not starting at his preferred position he will be having a lot of disappointments later in life. He had better learn to deal with that now rather than later.

"IT SHOULDN'T FUCKING MATTER THAT HE HAS NOTHING TO SUPPORT HIS CLAIM.  Neither did Kosta Karigeorge.  IF he says it, that should be enough." Are you for real? What alternate universe are you living in? If that is how you approach life you are in for a bucket full of disappointment son.

Being depressed due to lack of playing time (situational depression, which we all deal with from time to time) is much different than being diagnosed as having clinical depression. Situational depression is not a valid reason to cut and run - you have to deal with life's adversities like that. You can't snowflake your way through life. If he has been diagnosed with clinical depression why didn't his mother say so?

Hudson’s mother, Glenda, who’s worked for 32 years in the field of developmental disabilities and mental health only said she was "concerned" he had depression. Clinical depression (i.e. diagnosed for which medication can be prescribed) is different than situational depression (e.g., lack of playing time). Don't you think if Hudson truly had diagnosed depression his mother of all people would know? Also aren't coaches/schools limited in what health information they can disclose/discuss about a player (e.g. under HIPAA)? In those types of situations one is better off not saying anything one way or the other. Time to give this topic a rest. DVers already having a field day with me LOL.

This whole thread is pointless. Everyone is speculating on what really happened. Would a kid play the "mental health" card to get immediate eligibilty? No more/less than people playing the "mental health" card to get a comfort animal on a plane or an apartment IMO.

John Elway - you could hear the whack when the ball hit the pads of his receivers.

Of the 43 players who started in the game (OSU's Chris Gamble started on both offense and defense), 37 of them were eventually NFL draft picks (including 18 first-rounders). Of the 100 players who played in the game, 52 went on to be drafted and 58 went on to play in the NFL.

I don't like the idea of a program pulling an unofficially (pre-LOI) accepted offer just to bring in a more highly rated recruit. It seems dishonest in a way, especially when the young man has given every indication of wanting to be a Buckeye. But when you dig a little deeper, the recruit has every opportunity to withdraw his pre-LOI acceptance and reopen his recruiting, Up until that point either side is free to withdraw. So until the ink is dry I guess both sides can do what they want. But just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it. It's kind of like the movie scene where a person asks someone to the prom (accepted) and then gets an invite from the "hot" person and dumps the first choice - sucks.
