2021 tOSU Recruiting Discussion

Discussion in 'Football Recruiting' started by ScriptOhio, Apr 10, 2019.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Yes, to elaborate on my post above a bit, I don’t get the impression that Ohio State is even actively recruiting Payne as a priority right now beyond the standard staying in contact.

    Tunmise Adeleye also feels like a personality destined for the SEC, in my opinion. I would be happy to be wrong on that, but the ups and downs of his recruitment and his propensity for playing the recruiting game doesn’t feel like a match for Ohio State to me.

    And put yet another way, not a single Michigan recruiter in the mix.

    Question: someone on the goblow site mentioned a receiver/DB named Dione Colzie - any relation to Flam of OSU fame?

    There are two Corneliuses in play here - Flam was QB Corny Greene.

    His teammate in '73 and '74 was defensive back Cornelius, better known as Neal, Colzie.

    I don't think Deion can be Neal's son, since Neal passed away in 2001. Not sure if there's any other relation there.

    I don't think we get the 4 that Farrell listed, but I do see us landing some combination of them. Love where we sit with J.T., then think we land two of Adeyele, Bradley, Malone, and Payne to go along with Sawyer and Hall. And that would be the definition of an epic DL class.

    As for the realistic players that the Buckeyes will sign off of that list provided? Out of those nine players, I believe they will land at least four of them. Here's my order for the guys I'm most confident end up signing their NLI to join the class:
    1. TreVeyon Henderson
    2. JC Latham (If not for the heavy smoke of late around Henderson's recruitment, I would probably have Latham in the top spot.)
    3. Emeka Egbuka*
    4. Troy Stellato*
    5. J.T. Tuimoloau
    6. Derrick Davis Jr.
    7. Tunmise Adeleye
    8. Donovan Edwards
    9. Tony Grimes
    *I would put Egbuka and Stellato as 5a and 5b, respectively.

    Why are we helping them? Let's just agree.....the gap isn't that wide. They're almost over the hump. Any year now.

    What would your *ideal* finish look like? This isn’t who you think they’ll finish with, but it needs to be prospects they’re actually involved with. Assume that Henderson is in, putting them at 15. They’re going to 25, so you have 10 spots to play with.

    1. Egbuka
    2. Stellato
    3. Latham
    4. Burton
    5. Robinson
    6. Tuimoloau
    7. Malone
    8. Carter (I want to put Lewis here, but without an offer, I can’t really justify it)
    9. Grimes
    10. Davis

    This 25-man class would have an overall rating on 247 Composite of 325.58 with an average per recruit of .9534

    Of the uncommitted prospects, Henderson should be committing to Ohio State this evening.

    Wilcoxson, Tuimoloau, Egbuka, Latham, and Burton are all trending toward the Buckeyes.

    Stellato is trending away from the Buckeyes (toward Clemson).

    Adeleye and Davis are tough to read at this point - there are good arguments both for and against Ohio State.

    Bradley might not be a "take" right now, might be a plan B if Adeleye goes elsewhere.

    Dunn might not be a "take" right now, might be a plan B if Wilcoxson goes elsewhere.

    This class needs another linebacker (maybe Dunn could be that guy). Barrett Carter would be high on the wish list, but he's probably all Georgia right now.

    EDIT: In the two hours since I posted this, Maryland picked up two CBs for Marcus Bradley, and Steve Wiltfong flipped his CB from Ohio State to cloudy. Looks like he's not going to be a Buckeye. Maybe time to add Tywone Malone (no CBs at all) to my list....
