Perhaps OSU was just running away with the "recruiting crown" this cycle and they wanted to make it more interesting....dropping almost all the commits seems a bit much though...especially when several stood out at The Opening.....I don't get Carman's drop either....he is their  top player at arguably the most important position outside of QB...and isn't even top 10? ...

OSU should send him copies of our past DBs recent NFL contracts.....im sure depth is talked about a lot in recruiting and I don't fault it in playing some part in a kid's commitment, but I think you also need to be careful to not make the kid feel like he wouldn't be good enough to earn playing time at another program...

Lots of reasons....more control over the roster, the $ can be the same ( if its a big time college program), job security, etc....I think most people could name more college coaches than they could NBA coaches...I just don't think the "prestige" gap is all that big between the 2, if it even exists.

King was a pretty highly sought after DE....I know OSU had some interest early...he had quite a few offers. Was highest rated kid in that MSU class...

I can't see Coach Cal taking him....they literally only take 5*s. The scholarship comes from the higher revenue sport correct? Does KY basketball out earn football? Cal isn't going to waste a scholarship to help the football team....

Read something on a LSU board that said Wilson committed to FSU but when that  FSU coach went to twitter and kinda gave it away, Marvin got pissed and is rethinking things....they said both Coach O and Aranda have been on the phone with him.

Garrett is pretty big time, but yeah OSU is still waiting to snag one of those 5* monsters....300+lber , that is just a mountain in the middle. Maybe Vincent will be that guy, but it's a long way to go on that one.

Elflein was the 983rd overall prospect by the composite (247 had him rated even lower themselves)....we know how he ended up....not saying this kid is a future All American, but this late in the game , the options become limited...can't teach 6'5, and even if he becomes a steady 2nd/3rd type option or reliable red zone target, he's worth the scholly.

Looks like its gonna be a Moretti/Munford swap at OT in this class....not sure how they compare as prospects, Moretti rated a bit higher but Munford lists as an exceptionally large human....would love to hear a little more about him as a player

Birm did a little write up on this last night, from the sounds of it, 1. They expect Baugh to leave after this season 2. In the current TE group there have been some injuries and some of the young guys have not met expectations 3. Falo is very good...

Birm goes on to say that some think this offer will change Falo's recruitment and give him some more to consider, and one source even went on to say that Falo wants to come to Ohio State....

Comment 28 Jul 2016

I use the term loosely as the class will be great regardless, but the top 4 guys I would consider " Must Gets", from a positional stand point, from a talent stand point, and from the stand point that we have led in their recruitment for so long ( Akers aside) that not getting them would be a HUGE let down...adding any of the others would just be gravy...

Comment 22 Jul 2016

I would advise Clark not too make any waves, not exactly a great sign of leadership ( and that's kinda important in a QB) but he is young so you'll have this. I get the "saltyness" of having another QB taken in what you assumed was your class,.....but Martell is his teammate now and stirring up drama isn't going to be good for anybody. Today is a great chance for this class to further bond, not start to divide.

and all is right in the world again.....

Long way to go, lets see how things change after the pads are put on...
