WRs are going to go, the room is too stacked. Harris and Gardner I see leaving. Other possible spots: I could see Wray and Wint going. Wint is a nice special teams player but that's it at Ohio State. McCall is another obvious choice.
Cornell got robbed. He's first team on PFF's list. Only honorable mention here?
I think it's a fair article. It's realistic. He isn't a highly rated recruit with many big offers. I was a guy who wasn't too excited about him but now that he's in the fold, I'll be rooting for him. Let's hope he can be Carlos Hyde-like who was one of my favorites.
Not bashing him at all. He's a very good high school player. It's just about the measurables. A 4.7 40 time is a 4.7 40 time.
I'll pass on Williams. Too slow for a guy who isn't 6'2. Seems like a good fit for ISU.
The fact Oklahoma lost is pretty bad for Hurts. Being in the playoff is a pretty big deal for the Heisman. Chase deserves it.
What Zeke did was much worse and much more disrespectful. I'm doubting the locker room was that upset about it. If we would have committed then he would have taken some crap for it when he got to campus and it would have been quickly forgotten about. My guess is some players even agreed with him considering Haskins was the better quarterback (still shouldn't have said it.)
Jackson Carman? I remember Zeke ripping the Buckeyes' coaching after they lost to MSU with no punishment. Strong overreaction to a 17 year old kid voicing an opinion a lot of us had.
Why would Gibbs rather join a class with two 2020 rbs already committed versus being the lone back at Ohio Stare?
Didn't other recruits question JT? Jackson Carman comes to mind. Ohio State didn't stop recruiting them. It was an opinion a lot of people had and he was 17. Strong overreaction if that was the case. Kid doesn't seem like a prima donna at PSU.
Chase Young should be defensive player of the game pretty much every game. He's the best player in college football.
Was it really required to stop recruiting him? The penalty would have been a small fine, no?
No way he gets passed round 2. I still think it could be worth it to come back. He could use the experience on the outside. Wouldn't surprise me he plays his way into the top 15 with another year.
That's called a flop. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, not recruiting.
Bottom line is Alford has to do better with next year's class. Need two guys with one being a top 5. No excuses, he flopped this year. You don't miss back to back at Ohio State.
Not a very talented team but they played really hard. Very solid season considering the roster. Looking forward to the infusion of talent coming in, need guys who can create offense besides Wesson.
No.91 OT makes you a recruiting wizard?
If you only play defense then you're a role player. It's important to have quality role players who defend and play hard. But we need guys who can create their own offense, we see how miserable the offense is when Kaleb isn't going strong.
Holtman told Carton in his recruiting pitch the goal next year is sweet 16, I think that's attainable. Need Kaleb to be locked in, he's going to be the best player on the team. I don't think Muhammad or Jallow or anything thing more than role players so Ohio State needs both Walker and Carton to be big time next year.
College OT rules are definitely better. Think the NFL could do the same thing but start the ball at the 50.
Okay keyboard warrior, you're very tough behind a computer screen LUL
They way Jim Tressell went out hurt his legacy. The condition Meyer left the Florida program in hurt his legacy a bit. I feel like it hurt Thad's legacy (not a great deal but slightly) but I was wondering what other people thought
I didn't say he ruined it, I said he left it in bad condition. Any major program can be "recruited through" with a couple elite classes as long as they don't have sanctions.
Great argument, keep up the quality posting.
2 empty recruiting classes, missing the tourney back to back years and failing to even make the NIT. To me that is the equivalent of being hit with serious sanctions, just they were a result of poor coaching instead. That means the program is in a hole that takes years to recover.
