    Well, might as well swing for the fences and keep pursuing Downs until his signature dries on an LOI. Downs is an incredible talent, I watched one of his games this year and after seeing what an incredible athlete he is, it made me cringe a little thinking of him at Bama because I would be shocked if he doesn't up an AA safety at the next level, maybe multiple times. While flipping a Bama commit is a tough chore, the talent here warrants giving it a shot.

    Thanks pnut, hope the big guns visit reminds Caleb why he is wanted/needed at tOSU. Or he could be just another 5* in the vast wasteland of Alabama......but from what you opined, if he does visit, then his Bama schollie will be jerked.

    Confirmed. Coach Day & Coach Eliano are in the building to see Caleb's team play, reportedly along with coaches from Alabama and Georgia

    HONORABLE MENTIONS
    Although he’s now committed to Alabama, Ohio State hasn’t given up pursuing five-star safety Caleb Downs. Ryan Day and Perry Eliano attended one of Downs’ high school games during Ohio State’s off week in a game that featured many highly-touted prospects and remain persistent in trying to get the Georgia product to visit for the Michigan game. Until momentum starts to swing toward that happening, Downs will stay in the honorable mention category.

    Meanwhile, the Buckeyes also are trying to get Alabama safety commit Caleb Downs to Columbus for the Nov. 26 game. Downs, a Georgia prospect, just visited Athens for the Bulldogs’ victory against Tennessee on Saturday, so the five-star talent seems at least open to taking other visits. The problem is Downs is currently expected to visit Alabama for the Iron Bowl this year on that date instead. But things can change quickly in recruiting. While it probably remains a longshot at best, getting Downs to visit Columbus instead of Tuscaloosa on Nov. 26 would go a long way towards flipping the top-rated safety in the 2023 class.

    Telling him assistants will get fired isn’t negative recruiting, that’s basically a fact. There’s no way heads don’t roll on Sagan’s staff after a two-loss season. Athens isn’t going to compare to what he could see Saturday

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    I put the chances very low but with all the recruiting losses to Bama over the years, if he flipped to the Buckeyes he could just about even the score emotionally for me.

    He’s just so incredibly talented and plays a position on this defense where he would make a massive impact.

    It would be a heck of a coup for Day.

    Styles, Stokes and Downs would be a nice 3 Safety look.
     
  13. With the success this years defense has had and how many safeties play... this defense is made for players like Downs.

    Bestbuck36 Kyle Young/Cade Stover man crush. Stomp!

    Would make up for that loss of Battle for sure if he flips. I honestly dont know why all the best safeties in the country wouldnt want to play for Jim Knowles. Just watch film of our three guys this year and the effect they've all had on the team this year. No negatives

    So intrepid recruiting reporter needs to be at CMH and make sure he gets off the non-stop from ATL that arrives at 9:54 am tomorrow.

    He has a playoff game tonight.
