    I know it is real early, but is Jordan leaning any direction at this point with regard to school

    He has a cousin at Pitt, and he equally attended OSU, scUM, and Pitt games this past season

    True it is very early, but Pitt will have a slight advantage with Jordan thanks in part to the fact that his cousin Dorin Dickerson, who played in the AA game last weekend, is committed to Wanny. It all comes down to whether or not the big schools think Jordan can be a field-type corner at the next level (with 4.42 speed and a 10.8 100 I am guessing he can). If not, he could end up as a RB in an offense like Northwestern's or Purdue's. Smaller backs like Mabin, and like Sutton, seem to thrive in those type of offenses as opposed to OSU's or Michigan's (see: Hart, Mike).

    I am glad he has realized that CB is his future now we can take him Herron and Stephens.

    there are a ton of great RB recruits looking at OSU for 2007. like it or not, getting a kid like Stephens out of Texas will be tough, regardless of his ties to OSU. and Herron is not a lock for an OSU offer at this point. Herron is a superb talent but lacks ideal size at this point. don't forget about kids like Brian Gamble and Morgan Williams, both of whom could end up at RB or DB, and Hosea Simpson, who some think may be the best pure back in the class. Drew Desimone, Frankie Edmonds, Jaa'Rome Williams and Demario Pleasant are also good backs that will be looking for an OSU offer next year.

    Further solidifying his status as a defensive recruit...from the Scout's combine notebook:

    Mabin in my opinion will be a priority for Ohio State in next years class, which is fortunate because we will need some impact players in the secondary. The class is deep with secondary talent and along with Gamble, Oliver, and possibly Williams.

    I think the biggest question with Mabin on the defensive side of the ball is his experience. I don't think he's played a lot over there. I'm sure he will his Sr. year, so that could tell the tale. He undoubtedly has the athleticism, but as we all know, that doesn't always make you a great football player. Will be interesting to see if/how he fits in to next year's class.

    I had heard about this guy and heard he was a pretty good player, and then I watched him on TV. Nordonia's games are broadcasted on the same local channel as my team's so I watched one of him games this year. I taped it and he has some skill, no doubt about it. I'll have to tape some more of his games next year and watch them. From what I watched he is used alot on offense and a little less on defense. No doubt that'll continue through his senior year.

    From ND site........Mabin is wide open at this point. Pitt was the first school to contact him. Pitt, Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame and most of the Big Ten have been in contact.
