    With Crowley also banged up, and an available scholarship open, I think a grad-transfer RB begins to make sense.

    We’ll see.....still a few nice prospects publicly available. Also guys that would likely jump at chance to transfer to OSU if they know they have a shot at PT.

    Pretty incredible Sampson James has already entered portal at IU. He won’t be eligible next year, but you have to wonder how well he’d fit in this system....he’d have been lead dog all spring.

    Big Ten conference has been at the forefront of allowing 1 free transfer and now the NCAA as a whole seems to be aligned with that agenda. Not sure when that policy change would go into effect but you never know.

    Timing of his transfer is pretty crazy if this worked out. News came out around noon on Monday and now the Bucks need an RB today.

    How can anyone look at the RB room and think "yeah we are doing well there"? I'm sorry but with our history (especially of late) and a wide open depth chart we should've done better in 2020.

    As I said though the bright side is we get Fields/WRs tons of reps now this spring. Plus the DBs should now get a ton of reps too.

    The interwebs say 6-8 weeks for a strain. 6 months for a rupture. I’m hardly an orthoped, but if it’s really 6-8 weeks and he’s back in summer then all’s fine.

    I’m not going to get my hopes up, but Sampson would become the 1A back on this roster, even with a healthy Master Teague IMO.

    Only because I think there is some character concern around him, but Ohio kid Chawntez Moss (Began career at Pitt and actually took some PT away from James Conner as a True Frosh) then ended up in doghouse and resurfaced at Grand Valley State. Kid is talented and his video flashes. Good between tackles runner that I’d imagine would be a nice emergency back in event Teague and Crowley need more experienced depth.

    I don’t think it’s a talent issue with Moss though....unfortunately, with the recent issues off the field, I’m not sure OSU is willing to take on the minor risk.

    I’m not sure what site is listing a ruptured Achilles as a 6 month injury. That’s absurd.

    Kevin Durant is sitting a whole year out and that is basketball.

    If Teague ruptured his Achilles (which I have no reason to believe) we’d be lucky to have him back this time next year.

    If he strained his Achilles, I still think you’re looking at longer than 6-8 weeks although it’s possible. You don’t mess around with Achilles....

    Yeah, that’s one that I don’t see... really... ever. Only time I’ve seen an Achilles injury on a lacrosse field was a coach who went down. References to strains were pretty scarce. Lots of references to ruptures. I think that the timing listed was ‘back to activity’ not necessarily back to level of activity that is associated with being a D1 tailback. So, your response is likely in line with what would be expected for a return to full go. Full year for a rupture and something short of that for a strain.

    maybe 6 months for a tear. I had a complete rupture and I was nowhere near fully healed in 6 months.

    Full ruptures are pretty much career enders for running backs (Recent example 3rd round pick D'Onta Foreman a free agent after 1 season). Let's hope it's just a strain. My guess is we would have heard by now if it was a rupture since it's pretty obvious when it happens.

    Because landing the next Zeke in HS would not have satisfied the recruiting fans after they tasted the Bijan koolaid.

    Teague was supposedly the problem with Alford's recruiting. If that's the case, then his injury isn't that big of a loss and opens the door for other possibilities this off-season.

    The actual problem is they developed JK too well, and had a lot of trouble with keeping guys active. Snead was a stud but had issues. Teague is at worst solid, and Crowley was a gem in a very bad rb class so far. None of them are available this spring. 3/4 of that deficiency is not on the coach. 1/4 is character that you could technically say he should have vetted better. They had one year that didn't go well, and that would mean turning to a true freshman. The other years were quite fine.

    Maybe the "Alford should be signing the five stars because it's such an obvious choice for the far away, rare gems wanted by everyone" is a silly metric at the easiest position to find talent.

    2020, people were drooling because Bijan was a high possibility. Had they locked up a mid to high 4 star instead, would that have fixed it? Nah.

    There were only 3. None north of Houston. One wanted in later but had tons of baggage.

    2019, there were only 3. None of them were north of Mississippi. They didn't get many of the top guys, most of which look terrible so far. They got a gem out of Florida who just needs to get healthy

    2018, there were only 3. Georgia got the NC kid and PSU landed the VA kid. He's transferring. OSU got the 4th best, a high 4 star, their typical ceiling of blue chipper at rb.

    2017 - only 5, and only 1 up north. Georgia got him. Made it competitive for deep south Akers. OSU signed the 6th best and lapped the field with him.

    2016 - only 1, from PA, stayed in PA. OSU signed the 4th best after securing a 5 star (not for long) then backing off to let Michigan make that mistake.

    2015 - only 2, Bama snagged the ky kid. OSU was in the hunt for both for a bit. They signed the 8th best and killed both Michigan programs with him.

    Look at that class. #5 guice, #7 Scott, #15 saquon. #26 love

    2014 - 6 of em, none up north. Had to get some #7 ath, high 4 star from ny. The guy that kept Zeke coming off the bench as a true frosh

    2013 - 5 of em, only one near the north. He was dying to be a buckeye but wasn't good. The top 4 star? Kamara. OSU settled for the #13 rb, but fans were more excited about #14 from Texas.

    2012 - 7 of them, only one up north, stayed in stayed in state. OSU signed a high 4 star that used to be a 5 star.

    2011 - 5, only 1 up north, stayed in state
