    Just committed to UNC, the amount of guys DFBIA has sworn they were going to get that end up committing elsewhere this year is comically high.

    I'm sure that's been the sell from the start. I think the "legacy" angle works in their favor and, barring an absolute disaster of a season (which is quite possible) and the hiring of an all new coaching staff that he doesn't mesh with, he probably sticks. It doesn't matter, though. Given their track record with supposed elite recruits, he isn't making much of a dent in the overall mediocrity up there. Outside of him, that is an incredibly underwhelming, DickRod-level recruiting class that isn't going to move the needle in the right direction.

    Remember, posts exist of the DFBIA buying into “the new staff is killing it on the recruiting trail”.

    They aren't hard to find, you'll get at least a couple on every new commitment thread. Then they don't talk about recruiting again until the next underwhelming commitment.

    DFBIA truly are masters of their craft.

    Its going to take something extreme for this season to be an absolute disaster. And its going to take a season with less than 6 wins for that, and for Johnson to even consider decomitting. But even as good as he may be, he's going to soon understand that only being 1 player isn't going to make much difference on a bad defense(a point that Daxton Hill is finding out as we speak). And in the end, this will drastically affect his draft stock

    I don’t think there needs to be anything extreme for this season to be a disaster for them. The defense was already terrible last year and they are going to attempt a scheme change this year. The offense has no identity, there’s no playmakers, they aren’t going to near be able to make up for the benny hill defense.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Without even looking, I am absolutely sure DFBIA is saying they are making room for a higher-rated prospect.

    It seems almost impossible for them not to given that he barely cracks the 1000s.

    I’ll start laughing if they don’t manage it, but for right now this feels like addition by subtraction and someone they did likely process.

    Silver lining is maybe they blew up their connection to a major in-state program with how they handled this, if the movement here was instigated on the coach’s end.

    Wow, you must be psychic, or something....
    I love how all of Michigan's 3-star reaches are really 5-stars in disguise ... until one of them de-commits and suddenly the staff is dumping him for a better prospect.

    I agree with all that you stated. And even still, I got picture scUM realistically finishing with between 6 to 8 wins. 6 wins and Hairball is on a hotter seat but still not canned and they still land Johnson

    Hey, he's all the way up at #623 overall! Improvement!

    The rest they mention:
    Cass Tech's Deone Walker - He's a 4*, #326 Overall, #45 DL. Maybe they get him?
    Cincy Commit Derrick Shepard - 4*, #324 Overall, #44 DL.
    "South Carolingian" Robby Harrison - Unranked in the 247 Composite. 3*, #164 DL by 247 Sports. Offers? Air Force, Arizona State, Army, Charlotte, Indiana, Georgia State, etc...
    I won't even address the Walter Nolen absurdity. :lol:

    Walker and/or Shepard would be nice pickups, but they would be among the headliners in their class. The #44 & #45 DL would be among their best commits. Those guys would be "fliers" in a tOSU class, not counted on to help improve our situation. While they may well end up being solid players, those are not the kind of kids you need to attract to get out of the pit of mediocrity. Those are the kind of kids that keep you dug in. With a good DL coach, maybe they develop into all-B1G type guys, but their DL play has been a big pile of "meh" since Mattison left. Nobody thinks Shane Nua is a top DL coach.
