2006 '06 MD LB Navorro Bowman (Penn State signee)

Discussion in 'Football Recruiting' started by LordJeffBuck, Jan 22, 2005.

  1. Don't think the cards are stacked in our favor here. He hasnt really said a whole lot about us besides just the normal recruiting wishwash. The best thing he has said was being a buckeye fan, but that was just in his last article. We shall see.

    OSUBasketballJunkie Meyer is back. Deal with it Florida.

    I would have to agree, most of the chatter surrounding Bowman concerns Penn State at this point.

    Actually, he mentioned being a Buckeye fan in a Rivals article of July 11th.

    When I originated this thread on January 22nd, Bowman was favoring Maryland, but had Ohio State in his group of favorites. Then, by March 10th, OSU had been dropped from his list. Some time in late May or early June, Bowman received an offer from Ohio State, and by July 11th, he had the Buckeyes in his top five, and was claiming that he had been a fan of the program for a long time. Ohio State has remained in his top 5 (now top 3) since that time. (To be fair, so have PSU and VPI).

    Now, in the most recent article, by PSU Rivals, Bowman reiterates that he has been a lifelong fan of the Buckeyes.

    It seems that Bowman's previous ebbs and flows concerning Ohio State have been directly related to the interest shown by the Buckeye staff. Maybe his recent comments indicate that the staff is beginning to up the intensity a bit now that the season is over.

    Wadc45 has been cautiously optimistic about Bowman for quite some time, while I have been mildly pessimistic. However, I now agree with wadc45 that it is a true three-team race. Let's see what happens after an in-home from JT and the crew....

    No LJB! Don't you drink the Kool-Aid too! :biggrin:
    I definitely hope you both are right. Bowman is a heckuva football player. Great LB prospect, that's for sure.
  5. wow, I guess I didnt follow his recruitment enough. I just figured that he was going to Va Tech or PSU, but maybe we have a pretty good chance.

  8. Just wodnering what the dreaded red-x is. Is it something we should be excited about or not.

    westbuck04 Wildcard, b*tches

    Pretty sure the red x is the Kool-Aid man.

    And no more than 10 minutes ago, I was listening to Dane Cook's comedy bit about how he hates the Kool-Aid man..."I don't like it when my juice wears tights!"
  10. Well Nevada has called PSU.

    Thanks for the optimism WadC, I was drinking the kool-aid for a couple hours.:biggrin:

    Maybe just maybe the coaches can do some last second recruiting here.

    More than the next 4 years, Navorro....

    If you've been a Buckeye fan growing up, it's the chance to live a dream.... and that dream continues to unfold for the rest of your life. Be a dreamer in scarlet and gray :oh: :io:

    12/1

    Navarro has made a decision and will announce on 12/8. He will choose between Ohio State, Penn State, and Virginia Tech.

    My take: Although he had plenty of good things to say about tOSU, my gut feeling is PSU on this one. He spoke about his friendship with Derrick Williams andI feel that will be a deciding factor...although he does say tOSU presents the best opportunities for him.

    If Nevada is saying PSU, then I'll have to assume that is the choice.

    But, you never know, he grew up being a Buckeye fan, perhaps the opportunity to play in the Horseshoe and grow up in a city-like atmosphere in Columbus will override his friendship with Williams.. :biggrin:
