    As much love as Block O gets....Posey, Stoneburner, Thomas & Floyd is just an amazing WR class.

    Arguably the best ever for the Buckeyes.

  2. I agree, I really think that Harris is a long long long shot, but he is so good that you have to continue to recruit him, that is in a way why I feel they are waiting to offer Howard, as they feel that he will committ on the spot...

    I agree on Mobley, but it just seems he is one that says things to the media just to be politically correct, opposite of what he tells others close to him...

    As for that class, that is what I would love to land, just not sure if there are the numbers to make that happen...
  3. We should give ourselves a pat on the back for how good we are at this...:biggrin:

    I know I might be alone on this one but I would gladly take Bayless now that Floyd has verbaled to the Domers...I really liked his film but I haven't heard anything about his recruitment for some time.
  6. Honestly I am of the opinion that I would rather just pass on another WR prospect, and pick up a DB...With Scott counted in this class, we have 3 WR's and 1DB/WR so I would rather grab another DB like Howard, Harris, or Johnson...

    When the Buckeyes miss on a top-flight prospect with Floyd's resume there are really only two good responses.

    A - Get the next best prospect at that position - if netting Floyd was more about filling a need than it was about him being best available at that position. I think it was the latter. So option B.
    B - Get the next best available player, at a position of need.

    So, do we need additional DBs now more than any other position?

    If it is about a position of need what about another DT or DE?

    I'm with sandgk on this one. You can never have enough talent up front. Now, watch the staff grab another LB/SS type. :biggrin:

    In this case though I am talking about taking a different WR who already has an offer...not sending out an offer to a new WR prospect...

    Here is my pre-AA games update:

    Based on all the information I have read, all the emails I have exchanged with people that provide info for the BPRT and my gut feelings, here is my guess for this class:

    QB -
    RB - Torrence
    WR - Posey
    WR - Stoney
    WR - Thomas
    TE - DiLillo
    OL - Brewster
    OL - Adams
    OL - Shugarts
    OL -
    DL - Williams
    DL - Mobley
    DL - Goebel
    DL - Rowell
    DL -
    LB - Sweat
    LB - Sabino
    CB - Howard
    K/P - Buchanan
    Wildcard -

    From the information I have seen, the staff is focused on three players in particular right now...Pryor, Jenkins and Wells. I know everyone is ga-ga over Liuget and Harris, but JT is personally handling Wells recruitment right now and Liuget has been shaky about even visiting. That ship appears to be sailing. I think he sticks with his commitment to Illinois, whether by choice or not. I am tempted to go with Brandon Harris as my wildcard because of the relationship his father and JT have developed, but he is going to be a battle...with Miami having the inside track at least until he makes his official visit. I also know everyone is really excited about the thought of guys like Patrick Johnson, Jonas Gray and Kyle Rudolph hanging with the OSU verbals but I think it's best to temper our expectations. Rudolph spent a few hours with the OSU verbals and next thing I saw was people asking if he was going to switch his commitment since he was hanging with the Brew Crew...when in actuality he has spent most of his time down there with the ND verbals and is as solid to ND as humanly possible. Johnson has too many question marks and until I hear otherwise I think Torrence will be in this class. I am still waiting for a response from someone about Bayless and I have not included Gardiner because I think he takes the grayshirt and delays his enrollment at OSU.

    So in the end, give me Pryor, Jenkins and Wells (I am extremely confident about the first two and growing more and more confident about Wells) and I would be ecstatic. Toss in Harris and call it my birthday.

    Wade, I agree on Wells, especially after the Scout interview. WOW, I love that kid. Florida State does not deserve him.
