Why not go ahead and get this started? 2012 signing day is only a few weeks away.

Anyways, Tennessee got its third 2013 commitment today with Florida corner Mackensie Alexander. Already had a lot of good offers.

Can't wait 3 weeks? haha, that's when we usually start this puppy.

anyways....guys I expect Ohio State to sign next year:

Jalin Marshall -WR/RB (5 star, national top 10 type talent from Ohio. Percy Harvin type)
Cameron Burrows-CB/S (another sure 5 star)
Eli Woodard-CB (Army AA from Jersey)
Caleb Day-CB (Hilliard, Oh, elite speed and athleticism)
Billy Price-DT (Youngstown, Oh - draws John Simon comparisons)
Malike Zaire-QB (Kettering, Oh)
Michael McCray-LB (Trotwood, Oh)

maybe:

Jaylon Smith-LB (will go to OSU unless his brother Rod transfers)
Derrick Green-RB (it's early, but I like our chances)
Shelton Gibson-WR (from Cleveland Heights, loves Auburn, will be a battle)

Dymonte Thomas-S (will be a battle between his current verbal choice Michigan, and OSU where his close cousin Brionte Dunn is attending)

auburns off to a solid start with 3 highly regarded recruits..

jayron kearse, ath, 6-4 200~ (fort myers, fl). jevon kearse' nephew, hes a freak. plays qb right now but wants to be a wr. he still seems pretty soft into his commitment though so whatever.

trey johnson, lb, 6-1 215 (lawerenceville, ga). sideline to sideline backer. feel confident he sticks with AU.

dee liner, dt, 6-4 255 (muscle shoals, al). alabamas #1 prospect. amazing dl prospect (whose name is frickin dee liner.) have a feeling he'll end up at alabama just cause.


and then the rest is just a cluster **** to come. hopin we can pull gibson from ohio.

RB Alex Collins, WRs Kermit Whitfield and Jayron Kearse and DT Keith Bryant are already committed. Some guys that sound like they might be in this class and some random guesses on their rankings.

QB- Kevin Olsen (5*)
RB- Lorenzo Woodley (4*), Alex Collins (3*)

Have one recruit committed already in Kenny Bigelow who is a early 5* D tackle from Deleware.

Could see us landing a guy like Riley Sorenson who is a 4* OT

Gonna go hard after John Lopez an OG

Michael Hutchings 5* OLB from De La Salle will be high on our priorities.

Hatari Byrd, and Su'a Cravens who are both safeties are early targets

Gonna be an interesting couple recruiting seasons with the scholarship reductions for SC. I expect them to go hard after the trenches.

I'm not 100% on this, but one would think Mike Heuerman would be a Buckeye lock if/when they offer. His dad is from Akron (went to high school with my dad btw at Firestone High) and his big brother is a Buckeye who played as a freshman this year and looked pretty good, currently is the backup TE to Jake Stoneburner. Oddly enough their dad went to school at Michigan and I think he's a lawyer now.

Looks like FSU made one helluva an impression on Ryan Green this weekend, said he wanted to commit but doesn't want to be one of those kids who decommits. Parents are big FSU fans, looks good. My understanding is he's either the #1 or #2 RB in Florida for 2012.

MassNole
01-29-2012, 12:10 PM
So far for 2013 FSU has commitments from:

3/4* OL Austin Golson from Pratville, AL (teammate of 4* DT Justin Shanks). Probably would have been a solid 4* Top 150 player but had a knee injury this season.

4* DL Maquesis Bain from Fort Lauderdale, FL.

4* CB Sojourn Shelton from Plantation, FL.

Edit for wrong thread, but I'll post here.

The 2013 class for the state of Illinois is probably as good, or probably better, than recent years. OT Pocic is going to be one of the top in the country, and probably headed to ND. RB Ty Isaac is a guy I really want Iowa to go after, but they probably have no shot as he is going to be offered probably by everyone. Should be interesting, especially with a new staff at Illinois.

Max Browne from Sammanish, WA has a good shot to be the No.1 QB in the nation. Rivals 5* already. Interesting to see where he goes. UW is loaded with QBs and he reportedly wants to go out of state. I would assume both Stanford and USC push hard for him.

They didn't feel like he fit their new offense and wanted him to play safety IIRC. With a stud QB and a stud TE coming in possibly early next year as far as commits, that could set up a huge recruiting year. I like the aggressiveness that this staff brings to the table.

Urban is going to wreak havoc on the recruiting field this year.

yeah, it's gonna be fun to watch for buckeye fans...not so much for other big ten fans. he's gonna be hard to beat for the #1 class nationally I think.



Guys I think Ohio State signs:

Jalin Marshall-WR/RB.....................Top 10 national type talent. OSU Verbal
Cameron Burrows-CB.....................5 star cornerback. OSU Verbal
Eli Woodard-CB............................Army All-American
Caleb Day-CB...............................Speedy, athletic, under the radar stud
Shelton Gibson-WR.......................Is high on Auburn, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't pick OSU. Big time speed.
Robert Foster...............................#1 WR in America, loves OSU, wants to play with Malik Zaire as a package deal
Malike Zaire-QB............................lefty, dual-threat QB
Derrick Green-RB...........................offers from everywhere, grew up and OSU fan and Urban Meyer wants him bad
Billy Price-DT.................................similar to John Simon, undersized DT, but not as good
Courtney Love-LB...........................not Kurt Cobain's gf. from Youngstown Mooney
Ben Gedeon-LB...............................really athletic OLB/TE. notre dame/osu battle.
Evan Lisle-OT..................................top OL in Ohio. Will be offered soon and is a lock.

Maybe we get these guys too, but it's too early to call:

Jaylon Smith-LB............................older brother is RB at OSU.
Dymonte Thomas-S..................super athlete, surefire 5 star safety. Michigan commit, but his close cousin Brionte Dunn is at OSU and there is talk that Urban is gonna get him to flip eventually.....he is currently Urban's #1 target.
DeVeon Smith-RB.......................will be an OSU/MIchigan battle
Michael McCray-LB.....................we should offer soon, if we do, he's our's.
Lovell Peterson-OG/C...................haven't offered yet, lock if we do.
Donovan Munger-DT....................I don't know if we offer him. Too early to tell
Mike Heuerman-TE.....................If we don't get Brenneman, I think we offer him. Sounds like a Buckeye lock if we do offer due to family ties.




Updated from Page 1.

Robert Foster, Jalin Marshall, Dymonte Thomas, and Cameron Burrows are surefire 5 star players that are very gettable for Ohio State - you could call us the favorite for all of them, though Thomas might be 50/50 at worst. Derrick Green and Jaylon Smith might be 5 star players as well (esp. Smith). Foster reminds me of a young Andre Johnson almost.....he and Marshall sound like surefire national top 10 guys.

We'll see. His commitment is sketchy at best. He's committed to us and he's never even been to campus, and his twin brother doesn't even have an offer from us at this point I don't think. Even if you do get a "commitment" from this kid, I wouldn't feel great about it. Seems like he'll be a rollercoaster until signing day next year.

Ohio State got a verbal from 4* DT Billy Price from Youngstown today.

iowatreat54
02-13-2012, 03:54 PM
So I guess this kind of fits here...

Class of 2011 4* RB Rodney Coe originally committed to Iowa. He didn't make grades, so enrolled at Iowa Western Community College for 2011-2012. He had maintained that he still intended to transfer into Iowa.

Fast forward one year, Coe had a decent year playing RB at IWCC. However, he has gone from 6'3 230 to 6'3 270. Iowa has informed him they still want him, but as a DL prospect. Coe is maintaining that he will paly RB in college, and has opened up his recruitment.

I guess there's a huge flame war occurring on Twitter today between Coe and Iowa fans, mainly Iowa fans being immature. Needless to say, 0% chance he comes to Iowa now. Anyone in need of a 270 lbs RB?

holy **** i remember wanting him at auburn super bad.. thats pretty crazy to hear.

Yup, and the main reason he chose Iowa is we wanted him at RB while everyone said he was going to grow into a DE or LB, and wanted him there. 40 lbs later and he's shocked Iowa no longer wants him at RB.

He could be a really good LB if he sheds a couple pounds, and still does appear to have really good quickness for that size if he moved to DE. It's just a classic case where a 18/19 year old kid wanting one thing, and coaching staffs probably knowing a lot better.

Trotwood's secondary is freakin' loaded with talent. Bam Bradley was a senior this past year and he signed with Pitt - but Urban Meyer wanted him to sign with Ohio State pretty hard. Burrows is #7 in the nation for 2013 according to Rivals. I know they have another DB there too that is supposed to be a stud recruit. I haven't seen Dawson's tape but I know he got offers from like Indiana and Kentucky and he's a physical specimen for a DB.

Lots of good safeties in Ohio this year - Dymonte Thomas (I think he's a 5 star type athlete), Marcus McWilson from Youngstown Cardinal Mooney, Chris Worley from Glenville, Dawson, Jayme Thompson from Toledo (west virginia verbal), Jayln Powell from Warren Hardin....McWilson and Worley were said to get Ohio State offers this past weekend at the junior day, but apparently they didn't (or at least they aren't commitable offers).

Texas has a low amount of commits right. Don't they usually have a full class by now?

They are changing recruiting philosophy. It seems that a lot of these early commits have been great HS players early in their careers but are entitled and don't pan out as well since they have had their asses kissed for so long.

There are serious attitude issues on the current team. The 2010 team was even worse. The student paper has even publicly attacked their entitled attitudes.

Football is a brutal sport that demands a great deal of drive. No matter how talented you are physically, you need to have drive in order to be successful.

So Mack found out the painful way that you need to look for those players that aren't just super studs as Sophomores and Juniors and lock them up, but keep a good amount of space free for the hard drivers and the late bloomers.

Shallman, Dawson, and Lewis are all are local kids and long-time M fans, so while it's surprising and awesome they committed so early (and on the same day to boot), it's not really surprising. But Bosch? That came out of nowhere. He was taking visits to different places and talking like he wanted to draw out the decision-making process. Guess Hoke+Mattison really did a good sell.

Ehh, maybe. Wisconsin has definitely shown they don't need top talent to win, wouldn't count them out as future contenders based just on star rankings.

On that note, I can't decide whether I think Dantonio, whose recent MSU teams have majorly outperformed their recruiting rankings (which generally correlate to a teams success), is legit or not. MSU has "hit" on a ton of 3-stars who have turned out amazing - Jerel Worthy, BJ Cunningham, et al. - allowing them to post consecutive double-digit win seasons despite a lack of guru-approved top talent. Could be Dantonio actually has a great eye for talent, or could be if you flip enough coins you sometimes get a bunch of heads in a row. I am leaning towards the latter view. I don't think MSU can consistently battle for the B10 title over the long haul without top talent. Not trying to downgrade their achievements the past few years, just don't think it's sustainable.

Michigan's fast start is reminiscent of Texas' usual strategy or Ohio State's 2009 run that saw them win the fictional recruiting national title...the results of signing everyone by summertime haven't been as good lately with those classes for the most part though. I'm not sure why, maybe the sense of entitlement of the early evaluation period kids, or the fact that they committed to signing kids based on junior and sophomore performance instead of having them come in and earn offers in summer camps and during their senior year.

At any rate, the quality in Hoke's 2012 and 2013 classes so far has been in the trenches clearly, especially on the O-Line. I think that's a good sign that they are headed towards Michigan football we saw in the '90s and early 2000s.

Exactly. If you're a top prospect being offered by everyone, would you rather accept a 4 year guaranteed scholarship from say USC, or a one year scholarship that can be revoked after any given year by Alabama?

Saban has to offer 4 year scholarships if he wants to keep up now. Most kids aren't going to accept 1 year offers just because they're from Alabama when equally competitive schools are offering 4 years. You would be borderline mentally handicapped to take the 1 year offer.

Not every athlete in Ohio is gonna get an Ohio State offer, this is a guy who is a casualty of Urban Meyer being able to sign top 100 players like Jalin Marshall and Shelton Gibson (and possibly Bob Gibson) at WR plus Cam Burrows and Eli Woodard and Caleb Day at CB.

It's funny when you think about it... people said that BOB wouldn't have Brady, Gronk, or Welker at PSU like he did in NE. Well he's found a QB that could be good and a TE that could be Gronk like in college, and a WR that could be like Welker in college too.

Sure they might not be as good, but neither are the defenses they're playing against.

Also , Alex Anzalone is visiting this weekend for a second time instead of Michigan. His offer list is VERY impressive. If we get him...
