Gleitman mentioned in passing in A-Deck that Wint could be on his way out. He's now a RS Senior, right? So staff isn't obligated to give him 5th year here necessarily

Comment 15 Jan 2020

McCarthy definitely wanted in and was not given green light because he was 2nd (or lower) on the board. McCord was given it and took it. McCarthy was a bit vindictive about it in interviews after the fact.  

Comment 15 Jan 2020

When you watch it certainly looked like coach speak. The probably is the key word. He's not going to commit to it because they won't and shouldn't reach if Gibbs/Evans don't want in. 

Comment 12 Jan 2020

Listen, I really like Tony Alford, but he has earned his criticism to date. If we can snake Gibbs, then he will have re-earned the praise. As BG says all the time, it's a make or miss league. And getting the like 10th+ guy on your board (if that), per insiders is a miss so far. That position at this university sells itself, and it's about picking the right guys to target.

With that said, in my opinion it's worth waiting to see if he does land Gibbs before criticizing him, but to each their own.

They actually could not be more different. FB is for old people connecting and sharing/bragging about their life. Twitter is for in the moment news and thoughts. 

Comment 10 Jan 2020

Not true. Even after adding Gibbs, we'd be in 297 range. Incremental improvements on a couple guys will make very little difference...maybe get us up to 298ish. Georgia is at 309 in the #3 spot. If anything we'll be lucky to hold off LSU for #4. A damn good glass, but appropriately ranked. 

Comment 09 Jan 2020

I'm not positive we'll take 5 OL. Depends on departures I think (May Wray, etc). May be a 4 OL class with the right 4. And have to think it's definitely a 5 DL class. 

Comment 09 Jan 2020

By running away with it, do you mean having a lower per-recruit average than them? They are killing it so far in 2021. Which is fine. We also are.

BG: 

I would compare him to Darron Lee as an athlete and I like him best playing up close to the line of scrimmage. I think he probably can play the back half as a one-high safety in the current Buckeye scheme, but he is probably best suited as a Tampa-2 strong safety or perhaps he grows into a 225-pound outside linebacker. Regardless, Johnson is a football player that is going to find his way onto the field in some capacity.

WHAT ARE THE CONCERNS: Is he a tweener, in that he's too small for a linebacker and not athletic enough to play safety? I don't think so but I get that school of thought. Johnson will not wow people with measurables and this is not a long, pretty, athlete that can rip off blazing forty times. I love the kid as a player but I get those who won't be blown away by him in the underwear Olympics.

Pete Werner is 6’3 238. Johnson does not have that frame, at least not yet. Which was my whole point. Listen, I love his tape and athleticism, doesn’t change that I’d have liked to see how he grows and develops before taking him. I’m thrilled he’s a Buckeye and the coaches know 84930x more than me. All I was saying was I think he’s a bit of a tweener size wise (not athleticism wise).

Comment 07 Jan 2020

I like Johnson quite a bit and love to have him aboard, but would have held off to have him work through camps in early summer. His body type is a bit tweener between S and LB at the moment so would be curious to see how he continues filling out and developing. Must have deemed his athleticism too good to pass up!! Back to back BOOM days, let's go boys. 

Comment 06 Jan 2020

You guys are assuming he's a definite take. For me it does seem like a good fit, but haven't really had any of the insiders make the official connection as a definite possibility.
