Zach Smith on his podcast talked about the schedule for an official visit and I thought it was pretty interesting

  1. players arrive and normally given a tour by a gorgeous girl of the facility, trophy cases and OSU highlight tapes would be shown
  2. A meeting with the position coach and at OSU the coach would normally have the kids tape and critique it and show them similiar plays with OSU players. Assistant coaches would do mock player meetings with the rest of the staff to show how they do it, he said at other schools this is more of a "I'll make you the best player ever" bullshit session and good assistants shine here
  3. then a meeting with the head coach
  4. academic meeting with academic staff some schools have faculty who hate doing this and they struggle, OSU excels here
  5. they go to the weight room with Marotti and show players pictures of famous players who had transformations, Ryan Shazier for example had a massively body transformation, also show them state of the art equipment OSU has including something that can tell if your spine or hips are out of place place or weak ligaments based on you touching your toes
  6. OSU then splits players and parents, recruits go with players in the team to hangout and parents go out to eat with the coaching staff and their families
  7. lastsly the photo shoot where all team jerseys are available for pictures and OSU has the brand managements meetig which is unique

Adding Lathan Ransom, makari Paige, Darrion Henry, kourt williams, and Cody Simon brings us up to 280 on the class calculator with only 18 commits. That would be without RB commits, multiple DL still to commit, Mookie Cooper and Cam Martinez out there, and still room for a couple more. Should end up well past 300

BG on BM5: Thinks we get one of the five star RBs,Royer is a lock, Traynum down to OSU and Arizona State and trayanum knows where he wants to go and is commiting at the opening BG says ASU is somebody to watch, Henry, Phillips, Kourt Williams and Melton could commit soon. TE recruiting with Cam Large is interesting because Wisky could potentially be his favorite and we may press him on a commit and if he doesn't we could circle back to Luke Lachey who wants to commit somewhere soon. Mookie Cooper probably won't have a decision anytime soon and Drennen is putting himself in a bad spot because he wants to take all his visits and wait on a decision and may be left out of the class

Am I interpreting this Cody Simon recruitment right? A top 150ish player with a brother at ND but because they oversigned the last couple years at LB they won't take him. So nobody has really pushed much for him since they thought he was going to ND, so now he could commit early to lock up his spot at OSU?

Milton isn't going to not go to the school he thinks is best because some random writer said he thinks it's a done deal lol

Question about Knighton, 247 lists Mookie Cooper as 5-8.5 193 and he will be a slot receiver while Knighton is 5-9 185 on 247. Is Knighton recruited solely as a RB?

Rivals rankings updates notes

  • Jordan Burch DE from south carolina moved up 10 spots to #3, Clemson is current crystal ball leader and I would be happy if he didnt go there
  • Paris Johnson down 3 spots to 8, Georgia commit Tate Ratledge up 17 spots to 13 and now looks like he may be competing for #1 OT spot
  • Fleming up 1 spot to 11
  • Kendall Milton down 6 spots to 20, Bijan Robinson up 29 spots to 26
  • Darrion Henry who had been moved down by 247 stayed put at 45 for Rivals
  • Gee Scott up 49 spots to 50
  • Jack Miller down 24 spots to 80, he has slid in 247 and rivals rankings a little and there never seems to be an explanation
  • Kourt Williams way up to 100, easy to see Devin Bush comparison

He’s just a bigger back, he is a bigger back as long as he is athletic enough to catch passes he will fit into the offense

Comment 02 Jun 2019

Let’s discuss how Day could be about to land Milton and could secure the greatest offensive class in OSU history before ever coaching a game as the full time head coach instead of the tweet.

Surprised to see how positive that board views Orgeron, I hope he is there forever LSU has the capability of being a powerhouse but they refuse to let it happen
