My impression is that big time recruits tend to commit later rather than earlier.
Good find. I created a thread on him.
Or that uncommitted kids tend to be ranked higher. That would generate more excitement when the kid announces. #73 kid committing is a lot more exciting than #106.

Just throwing this out there. Any chance tOSU goes after this guy with the injury to Barrett?
Probably not...Barrett will have plenty of time to completely heal before he's needed. Guiton will be Miller's backup all next year and we also have Cardale Jones as #3...we're good to go so Barrett will be fine.
So, reading between the lines here - what exactly are you trying to say?
Let?s not kid ourselves here, chances are at least .01%.
Beat me to it.
Also, looks like Vonn Bell is now 16th at his position in Rivals. Did they have him that low to begin with or is it one of the recent changes?
Any Wisconsin OL commits worth flipping?

As for the coaching carousel, this scenario is the one that could benefit us the most imo:
1) Paul Chryst leaves Pitt to go back to Wisky. As much as I hate Bucky, I want the Big 10 to be strong and Chryst is a respectable guy and a great coach. Further, Pitt is in great position with recruits of interest. I'm not sure D. Johnson reconsiders unless the most of the staff is gone...he seems set on Pitt and being close to home, not Chryst. Plus Wisky isn't a threat to us for anyone we want right now and we aren't interested in any of their commits. As for Foster, I am not sure how much the interest has been renewed on our side. He says he is down to Pitt and Bama, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him take a 2nd look at OSU if Pitt is out of the picture...never got the feeling he wanted to go far from home.
2) Strong heads to Tennessee: While this will likely creat disparate results, hear me out. Whether we get Quick or not is solely dependent on whether Strong leaves Louisville or not. If he does, we likely get Quick. If not, Quick goes to Louisville and no questions asked. Now move to Bell. I think Bell ends up at UT regardless...he is a player that loves UT, not who is running the program. OSU has a decent shot here but I'm not sure a Strong hire for UT puts us in a signicantly better or worse spot for his signature. Plus Redfield seems intent to visit, so hopefully he is a legitimate alternative. The real downside to Strong at UT is how it could affect us for guys like Malone and Hurd next year in Tennessee, whom we appear to be in good shape with.
- Those are the only two scenarios I see affecting our recruiting in any way. I think Mitchell, Worley, Gibson, and Conley are in. Also, I really think Trey Johnson ends up here too, regardless of the Malzahn hire or who stays. As for Dawson, he will either stay up north, which I think is the most likely, or head to OSU imo. As for Munger, I am not positive the staff wants him here...I see Price getting moved to guard if we miss on Dawson and calling it a day at OL unless we can flip an OT somewhere.
I believe it was Mike Farrell (Rivals) that I was reading the other day that Oregon stopped recruiting Max because he was playing the recruiting game and just using them. He has mentioned numerous times that Max is all Irish.
Do you think it's possible/likely that Max is using tOSU in the same manner?
