Damn. Wish him a speedy recovery. Been cheering for him since he was on these 11W boards after he committed.
Hahah thats awesome. I love that attitude. Kind of reminds me of Marshall Henderson. Im sure he won't be as controversial but just that killer attitude that thrives in hostile environments and plays better the more you hate him. Sounds like he's going to be a good Buckeye to add for the Michigan rivalry.
Awesome update Colin! Looking forward to reading the story.
And I said that in my previous post that we would be better...
kentucky is a legit top 3 team this year. Lot of depth and size which is still our weakness. Comparing that situation to this one is like comparing apples to oranges. Lot less vulnerable even with us being a better team. Still have a shot but it’s always hard to upset a top 3 team when you don’t have a home crowd.
Love the kids potential. A lot of athleticism. Him and Zach Harrison I think have the most athletic potential to be absolutely studs in this past years class. Going to be fun watching him on special teams this year and develop through his career.
Hmm so wypler isn’t too 100!? That’s interesting
Villanova I'd say is the second most likely. They return a lot of high potential players that will make a huge leap this year. Got a lot of those lanky 3 and 4 position players that were high potential guys ready to take then next step. Sadie Bey I would be surprised if he wasn't a first team all Big East. Probably be a first round pick next year. Plus they have a monster top 5 recruiting class with 2 top 15 players coming in. They are a top 8 team in the country. UNC loses their top 5 scorers from last year, including 3 first round picks. Lot of talent they are losing and they have a less heralded but still top 10 recruiting class than villanova has coming in. I'd expect early on for them to be pretty vulnerable with all that they lost. Villanova returns at least 3 of their 5 starters. UNC only has one returning starter and he was their worst one. So yeah I would say even though its away I think OSU has a better chance of beating UNC.
Kentucky is going to be a lot better than that team 4 years ago. That was probably coach Cal's second worst Kentucky team he has had. They were pretty bad by Kentucky standards that year. Fringe top 25 team. This year they are a top 5 team in contrast but we are better also. It should be exciting but I think Kentucky is the best team we will play all year other than Michigan State.
Should go about 8-3 with losses to Kentucky, Villanova, and UNC. Anything better will be just extra. I think UNC is probably the most likely team we could upset with all that they lost.
I'd also like to add Marcus Hooker to the list. Haven't heard a blip about him. I know he was much less heralded but he is the brother of the best OSU safety of this decade.
Yeah Zook brought some serious talent to Illinois which is saying something. He recruited 5 of their top 8 recruits all time including the only 2 five stars they have ever gotten.
Texas is really the only baffling pick ahead of us. I’d take us over Oklahoma but i could see why some would think they should be ahead with the way their offense just hums along. Trey sermon being ranked higher than dobbins is laughable in the player rankings. Zero business there.
Texas makes absolutely no sense there. They lose more starters than us and they were still a worse team than we were last year. Ehlinger is one of the most overhyped qbs there is. Absolutely have no right to be ranked that high.
That does make sense. Let’s hope it happens. Good connection CardaleFTW. Be a hell of a replacement for kaleb if he leaves.
Damn. I think he’s going to be a really good one and future first rounder. Sad to see him go to a team like Tennessee.
Kind of amazing he got an assistant coaching job in the NBA without any experience at the college level. Good for him and will be cheering on the Grizzlies.
Lot more talent than just DPJ for Michigan wr. Hate to admit it but they have three receivers in DPJ, Nico Collins, and Tarik black (if he can stay healthy) who rival any in the big ten including ours. Rb they are very vulnerable and thin though. Have a former walk on in their two deep so that’s most certainly their weakest position. But they do have some good weapons at receivers for Patterson
Agreed. Lamar Jackson ran a 4.34. Hard to believe he is just as fast as the most explosive qb since Michael Vick.
Ahh forgot about that. Thanks for the info!
Tennessee lost 4 out of 5 starters including their 3 best players. Think they are going to drop off and probably won't even be a tourney team this year. Maybe we have a shot at flipping him. We came kind of late in his recruitment so it should give us more time to develop that relationship.
I mean they kept Stud his position coach. So I'd say its a little far fetched that he had to "totally re-recruit" him.
Not sure you can count Paris Johnson as solely a day recruit. He committed when urban was the head coach. But yes day is bringing in elite talent
Damn that’s too bad. Need a big time defensive end after losing two starters in Young and Cooper. Not going to panic because coach Johnson is the best but a little concern. Going to need Harrison to step up big if we don’t get one this class.
Man was he streaky. When he was on he would be the best player on the floor. But he single handedly took us out of the Kentucky game with his 2-16 or something like that performance.
He’s a guard or center if necessary. Definitely not a tackle.
Agreed. You can make the comment but at least have the decency to say it while he's still on the field. Such a coward move. Should have put up 80 against them this last year.
