Per BK Tyler Baron looking to make an unofficial at the end of July and an official for a game during the season

“I don’t have any other official visits planned,” Baron said. “Ohio State is the only one I’m positive of right now.”

Believe you have to give $75 a year or so to be a sustaining alumni member (but to my knowledge this unlocks the presale a day earlier than the general alumni tix). Easy enough decision for me to give to the Med Center but you can direct your gift into anything you want.

I want to ask Taylor, Birm, Givler etc how they plan to fill daily columns with this class almost locked up by early August. Gotta move to deep dive on 2021 earlier than ever really. Only so many Elias Ricks columns we can have haha.

Which makes a TON of sense. SEC is strong and competition for those guys is as fierce as ever. They'll still work on key guys down there, but why not play to your strengths and take advantage of weaker competition out there in some cases. They probably aren't the only ones to realize this, so will be interesting to track over the next couple years.

I disagree, because the offensive staff didn't change at all. We have heard that Hubbard was possibly an Urban guy, but still, the offensive staff is the same--it's not like Alford is gone. The kid was processed, and sure some of that was due to coaching change, but it also had to do with the fact that he just isn't as good as they thought and they (rightly) went big game hunting. 

Comment 12 Jul 2019

Is it though? In practice Day was the one who orchestrated it. Sure it was hidden under the guise of the coaching change, but it still happened. 

Comment 12 Jul 2019

One build--it's easy to forget we already did this THIS YEAR with Darvon Hubbard. Have to be extremely careful about doing it in Ohio in particular given the ramifications with HS coaches, but it does and will continue to happen forever. 

Comment 12 Jul 2019

1. Bobby Carpenter tweeted out that he had committed while he was on an official. Some (including myself) took it to indicate he may have silently committed.

2. BK last night in his column "The source cited someone close to Williams telling him “it’s Ohio State.”"

I count him as IN. Especially bc on top of these two, BG said call off the dogs.

Comment 10 Jul 2019

I absolutely am not hating on Leroux...he's a hell of a football player. It's very hard to be one of the best 1200 players in high school football in your class. But that doesn't mean I think he's Ohio State caliber. Our ambition is to win the national championship, and when you have limited scholarships available, I'm allowed to voice an opinion that says I think it would be better used elsewhere. That's not hating on him. I hope he proves me wrong, but since when is making a comment about scholarship allocation on a recruiting "bored" as you call it, hating on a kid? It's so easy to freak out when someone has any sort of opinion that differs from the staff. Appreciate Money Mike agreement on this. 

Comment 09 Jul 2019

Or process Leroux...it won't happen but I will beat this drum because I think it's worth saying. I'd rather have a 4 year developmental backup QB that wont transfer than 14th OL Trey Leroux...sorry, just would. We have a huge body athletic developmental guy already on the roster in Dawand Jones. 

FWIW, Givler in his chat today was asked about this and said he had no evidence to suggest this was in the plans. Follow up question was:

Do you think Trey Leroux is an OSU caliber prospect?

I thought it was a reach as early as they offered.
