    Joseph is a Jr. this year at Detroit Cass Tech (same school as Vernon Gholston). He wants to major in Chemical Engineering. Joseph is built like a LB and hides his 315 pounds very well. He holds an offer from Michigan St. already, and is getting regular interest from tOSU, Michigan, and Notre Dame. He also likes Texas, USC, Tennessee, and Cal.

    Ohio is loaded with talent next year (as it is every year), but there seems to be a lot of talented kids in Michigan next year...at least more than usual. The measurables on kids like Barksdale, Darris Sawtelle, Taurian Washington, Ryan Wheat and Ronald Johnson leads me to believe that there is going to be some serious talent in the state of Michigan next year.

    Much, much moreso than usual at least. There is another DB up there that is supposed to be really tough too. Blanking on his name at the moment...

    Not much info here. Joseph's combination of size, mobility, and grades has most of the Big Ten pursuing him already. He has been to two tOSU games this year as well as games at MSU and Michigan.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    Hes looking at alot of top schools across the country. However he has visited us twice already, hopefully our recent dominance of the school up north will sway him to be a Buckeye. Great 40 time for a 315 lb kid.

    OSUBasketballJunkie Meyer is back. Deal with it Florida.

    He doesn't look like he weighs 315 from the rivals pic, anyone have any other pics?

    4.9 forty is impressive for a kid his size.
  8. The first article says that he doesnt look 315, but the coaches and him insist he is. This kid must be strong as an ox, b/c he is packing some muscles somewhere.

    I also like the fact that he is basically already qualified with his 3.5 gpa and 21 act, and he seems to be looking hard at the academic side of the schools.

    I just reread your previous post, and understand what you were saying. I'm just an idiot.:2004:

    good point you made and I know he would be a killer on the o-line and easy for pittmn and wells to look like all americans behind him but, Tressel got me convinced that defense wins the big games

    got us a title that way:osu:


    either way I would be more than happy to have him as a buckeye

    the kid blew up at SA junior workouts

    according to some he has a good shot to be a 5 star recruit.
