    Seems we should take his word for it. I remember some people were worried last year when Devan Bogard took an OV to USC, but that turned out okay.

    I wonder who was telling him he wasn't worthy of an tOSU offer. I really hope it wasn't Buckeye fans. Taivon proved himself to the staff at camp, and that is good enough for me.

    This kid is all buckeye and I can't wait to see him in the slot. He can make our offense look like how west va's did, if not better. Im sure his visit to umd has to do with his brother, levern playing for umd as well.

    I remember reading an article where he stated that he was glad that umd would be joining the big 10 because his family could watch him play against his brother in their homestate.

    Jacobs potentially reconsidering.

    it doesn't surprise me to be honest, seems like he's been recruited over, and if Clark were to come, that may just make it worse for him, can't blame him for reconsidering

    I did not realize that he was a father. That could make his decision even tougher. Might want to stay closer to home.

    Didn't know he was a father either. If momma isn't coming to C-Bus neither is he IMO. Very interesting development to say the least.

    Honestly think he flips tomorrow.

    He's got a baby and Dontre Wilson and possibly James Clark might be taking his spot.

    I was always very intrigued by him but if it's a choice between Tre or Jacobs I'm taking Tre.

    Good luck to him wherever he ends up.

    being a father would come first IMHO.....tough choice for this young man....would not begrudge him one bit if he flipped...good luck young man wherever you end up!!!!

    GPA-wise, Travon is one ofthe smartest kids in our recruiting class. I know he'll make the right decision for himself, no matter which school he picks. OSU fans should stand behind the kid's decision and respect it. It's not an easy decision for anyone, let alone a teenage kid.

    Good luck with your decision, Travon!

    I completely understand Taivon looking out for his kid. And even though a number of guys have been high profile athletes and still went to colleges outside of their home state, but I understand if he wants to stay closer to home. Wouldnt be surprised if he even ends up at maryland, his brother is already there and its very close. Best of luck to him

    what pnuts said.. ditto

    When you do things for the right reasons... good for you
    You only get one chance to watch your infant grow up to be a toddler..
    miss it.. and you'd probably regret it for life

    The main thing I have to ask is, it's only now his infant becomes a factor in his decision? What, did the stork just drop it off on his doorstep last week? Didn't think so. Not criticizing his desire to be with his kid, but he should have thought of that when he first committed. The only other thing I can think is that he is getting pushed out of his committment by "someone else" committing today/tomorrow, and that would be unfortunate to say the least.

    Glad he's taking his relationship with his kid into consideration; many people don't. Regardless of his decision, I hope he chooses to remain in close proximity to his kid, i.e., if he chooses tOSU, I hope he brings mom and the kid with him.

    Be a great player and a great father, Taivon. It can be done.
