Doug’s approach to positional numbers driving how many guys we should be taking is fully misguided because he only assumed 3 early NFL entrants IIRC haha. Just silly all around. Generally love their pod but I couldn’t handle how bad the takes were on recruiting
Publicly calling out Ohio State academics as inferior to Florida's (honestly...pretty identical and OSU better in some majors) is not the best way to endear yourself to the staff. Just leaving it at that.
And FWIW, kid is talented, but he's also a major game player, and the staff may not want to deal with any/many of them in current climate.
EBB is very sure about Adeleye for whatever reason. All good. I still think (and Birm and others confirmed) the staff would prefer a speed rusher (like Robinson even after committing to Maryland) over him. Particularly given the shape of the board and how well positioned they are at DT/SDE
I'm not that far from you (Burlington VT) and ours is surprisingly trafficked for whatever reason
When you're a top 10 prospect in your class, you should basically never care about depth chart (unless you're a QB coming in behind a true freshman starter, really). In your class or in previous classes. When you are that talented, you should be able to see the field early if you take care of your business. Plus, as everyone's saying, we play 6 in rotation. He'll see the field as a freshman.
He. Didn't. Miss. He represents the program leading at any given moment. News flash--Ohio State was leading for Donovan Edwards but he wasn't ready to pull the trigger. Just because you don't understand Crystal Balls doesn't mean he's wrong.
"I don't buy into guys who more correctly predict than others. I like guys who are wrong more often."
He has the same handler as a dude who requested bags last class.
Assume it is related to his handler?
I thought the same--but can't really imagine who it would be. Went through entire list and couldn't really envision who could even be considered a risk at this point. All 15 are pretty vocal and seem firm so who knows
He and his dad are extremely measured. I'd say odds of him playing it even slower are better than not. Get him on campus and you've got a shot.
I think Maryland and Penn State both beat TTUN out.
Or, far more likely, C) contingency planning
That would put us at like 18 OL on the team depending on departures/transfers. We only really need 16 based on historical numbers.
I wholeheartedly agree, Triv. I think because of that talent, we shouldn't reach on guys and keep this OL class to 4 instead of unnecessarily stretching to 5. Unless you can get Spindler (who sits in the double-win category as he's an elite player and you snake him from TTUN), I think you stick at adding Latham & Burton if you can and call that a day.
Looks like it will be Mack Brown at UNC
The *Decommitment* U
Wilcoxson also chimed in with "Facts" in reply. It's not a good look no matter how you spin it.
Thank you, AE.
Last night he went live on IG with Pryor and he couldn't even remember the VT RB coach's name haha.
He also wants to try to play baseball in college--so look out for Texas A&M as well.
Not accusing you of making anything up at all. I was just saying Bank sees Adeleye moving inside or at minimum as a hybrid SDE/DT at the moment based on his most recent chat. I liked Robinson more than Adeleye myself for exactly this reason--he's definitely pure rusher at WDE rather than a guy who could bulk out of SDE and kick in. All moot anyway
Adeleye also a DT hybrid...so that logic doesn't really hold. Bank says he was shorter (height and length) than he saw on film and sees him kicking inside in college
