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

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 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 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.

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

Comment 27 Mar 2020

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
