First time I’ve heard about this as well. So if it’s true will this change their plans of taking 2 TEs in the 2021 class and just take 1? Or will they still look to take 2?
Zack, I’m gonna change up your Feb predictions a little bit. First off I love the RB predictions!! That is definitely the top 2 I hope they get. Anyways, I still feel strongly that OSU will land Egbuka. I don’t understand why you guys aren’t very high on him being part of the class, especially your colleague Andrew Ellis, who seems to be very pessimistic on several OSU targets. Second, I don’t think they take 5 total DL, unless it’s that JT kid from Washington. I have never heard the name Tywone Malone mentioned before, so unless they can get JT I think they will end up taking 2 DE and 2 DT. Finally, I’m now back on the Tony Grimes train and feel OSU will win out in the end now that Coombs is in the fold. So I would replace Turrentine with Grimes. Overall great list
Hey Andrew, I seriously don’t know why you don’t have Egbuka on the list. He’s a top priority for OSU and they’ll fight to get him until the end. I also don’t know why you don’t have Jager Burton on your list, as he’s probably more likely to commit right now than Latham. Burton should be on the list along with Latham
As I’ve said a hundred times already , as long as OSU gets 2 of Edwards, Pryor, Kiner, Carrol and Wheaton I don’t care.
So did this help move them up in the team rankings at all?
A CB trio of Johnson, Grimes and Hancock will be sweet
Zack, now that Grimes is back in the fold as a top CB target, how many total DBs do you see OSU taking in this class? They already have Jaylen Johnson at Safety, do you see them adding another Safety (I recall your #2 on the top 5 list is a safety, but can’t remember the name). Will they take 2 CBs and 2 Safeties or possibly 3 CBs and just 1 Safety?? I mean if all 3 CBs of Grimes, Hancock and Jakelin Johnson want in you can’t say no.
What about Najee Story and Jahzion Harris as possible DE targets if OSU can’t land any of the 3 that Zack mentioned??
Hey Woodshed, Yes I did read the article. I was simply asking if Zack can provide some more insight on the Grimes situation. In the beginning he was very high on OSU and now it seems that they have fallen off the radar. And I wouldn’t think OSU wouldn’t make him a priority since she’s the top DB in the country. What has changed?? So don’t be a smart ass thanks
Zack, I commented in a different post that I feel OSU is slipping away with Grimes. He was enamored with his visit to Georgia and even stayed an extra day. He also mention a few upcoming visits but didn’t include OSU. What are your thoughts? Are they still in the picture? Especially now that Coombs is back, can OSU make a realistic push??
My Spidey sense is telling me that Tony Grimes is slipping away. He recently visited Georgia and raved about it, even stayed an extra day. He also listed his next few visits and OSU wasn’t mentioned. He hasn’t talked about OSU much either. I don’t think OSU will land him, but I hope I’m wrong. Hopefully Coombs will make it a priority to see him soon
Can we please just stop all the bitching and stupid comments about how OSU can’t get top RBs year after year? They’re fine at the RB spot trust me. Let’s also not forget that Martinez could play a little RB as well, perhaps a wild cat scenario. Teague will be just fine and both Crowley and Chambers will get plenty of carries as well. And why would OSU spend the money and resources to bring in a kid for an OV just to have him say thanks but no thanks. Gibbs has said over and over he can’t see himself leaving the south so why make the expense for nothing that’s dumb. Plus OSU will get 2 stud RBs in 2021.
Dude you need to save that shit and bet on it!!! That’s great stuff. As Smokey said, “Remember it, write it down, take a picture I don’t give a fuck!!”
While I’m ecstatic at the probability that Coombs is coming back and will welcome him with open arms, I’m also concerned about how long he will stay. I’ve said it before that if Fickell leaves UC for a bigger job, Coombs will be on the short list to replace him. He has said that he wants to be a HC before he retires and that would be an ideal opportunity for him if it were to happen. Let’s hope it won’t be in a year or 2. I know OSU reloads with coaches as well as players but this new regime under Day needs some stability
Just a FYI in case it already hasn’t been mentioned in this post....Hilliard hasn’t officially said he’s coming back despite being eligible to return for a 6th year
Would absolutely love to see a DB haul of Grimes, Johnson and Hancock as the CBs and AJ Kirk and newly committed Jaylen Johnson as the Safeties. That would be an incredible haul to reload in the secondary.
As far as the RBs as much as I would love to see Shipley in the class I don’t see it happening. He would fit so nicely in Ryan Days offense. I would be thrilled with Edwards and then either Kiner or Pryor
Here’s a thought and it doesn’t involve a future coaching gig. Gene Smith will probably retire in a couple years. So that means the next AD at The OSU could be hmmmm.....Urban
Definitely Latham and optimistic about Burton, but don’t see Leigh committing to OSU
You definitely should have Egbuka on the first list over Collins
This is why Corey Dennis never accepted the CSU job because the departure of Yurcich was known for weeks and I’m certain that Dennis knew he was going to be promoted. In my opinion this was the smartest staff decision Day has made.
and to give my thoughts on Hartline I’m not sure if he will get promoted to Co-OC but he will definitely have more decision making going forward.
Not yet official people, he’s still on the OSU staff
He has yet to accept that position at CSU. He’s still on the OSU staff so yes it would be a promotion
Time to promote Corey Dennis
Have a feeling OSU will get 5 stud DL in this class, 3 DE and 2 DT and they will all be 5 stars or high 4 stars. As much as I’m excited for the 2020 class I’m pumped about what the 2021 class will end up looking like. Sick
Dude you’re an idiot. First team AA but he was terrible. Sure ok
