    Are you asking if people around here have moved passed the bargaining phase of their grief to the acceptance phase in regards to Downs?

    Trying to understand the Bonsu news, he was to commit last week. Downs is committing on Wednesday to Bama. Is he waiting to be sure that takes place?

    I don't think Bonsu is thinking about Downs. He may be fielding more offers. But I highly doubt that OSU is in this

    That would be a heck of a recovery from Downs, I know I previously said I didn't see Bonsu in this class but that was before all that recently happened and he is a great player in his own right. And it possibly plugs us in to a pipeline school that regularly produces top players. Would be very excited to see Jayden in this class.

    In the past 20 years OSU has pulled four DBs from Jersey... Malcolm Jenkins, Eli Apple, Jordan Fuller, and Ronnie Hickman.

    That's a pretty good hit rate.

    the most notable Jersey safety to sign elsewhere worked out pretty well too.

    Speaking of a pretty good hit rate, it was a long time ago, but Jack Tatum came from Passaic, NJ in 1967.

    But came in as a RB I believe.

    Yep, he played both ways in high school, of course, and Woody did recruit him as an RB, he switched to defense while on the freshmen team in ‘67.

    Hard to say how he would have been listed if any recruiting services existed back then. But I thought he should be recalled while remembering Buckeye DBs from NJ.

    Rex Kern is on record that Tatum would have been a Heisman caliber running back.

    You forgot about Ira Guilford.

    Yep, probably best to forget about Ira Guilford.

    I must be getting old, because my first thought was Myron Rolle…..and apparently he is a 35 year old neurosurgery fellow at Harvard now. Absolutely one of the most impressive young men to play college football in my life time.
