    And that's not coming from a Florida guy or an Ohio State guy...that's coming from a national recruiting analyst...

    Impossible not to make the comparison, especially with all the batted passes and long arms. Curious to see his wingspan...with his huge vertical and height, coupled with his strength, speed, and overall mean attitude, he is going to be a serious force here. Cannot emphasize enough that I think Bosa is the top player in our class. Only difference between Watt is Joey is more filled out at this stage and MAY end up at DT depending on how he fills out. He gets great leverage considering his height...however, I really like his potential at SDE with his athleticism.

    Moves really well for a kid of his size and strength.

    Angry and violent...the exact player I want at OSU. Physically gifted beyond belief but still has an animal mentality. We live in an age where so much evaluation is cast towards a player's measurables. While Joey meets the tangible requirements and then some, he is simply a football player too. Again, I hate to put such expectations on a kid but I think he will go down as a Buckeye legend.

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    And there's both the agony and ectasy of recruiting. Everyone is going to be a 'legend' or 'heisman' or whatever as a HS senior. Ratings are wonderful (at least when I/we agree with them, not so much when we don't :biggrin:), and all of tOSU's recruits are under-rated, or get bumped up in Scout etc's rating, simply because Osu, or Notre Dame, or USC, or ? recruited them.

    Time will tell, and the heart/brains/attitude/intelligence/football savvy, etc will kick in. Taking the coaches advice, and putting it into action, will be key to seeing the field. Many a talented individual sits on the pine because they cannot grasp the intent of the coach's intent.

    Having said all that, all we DO have are the measurables, and the reflection on the body of work that these young men/kids accomplished in HS. Projecting them as elite D-I players is difficult if not impossible. Yet this is what these coaches are paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to do. The 'coaches of the year' are the ones who win more than they lose (both on the field and recruiting of the kids that perform). There are many examples of non top 5 teams (Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Iowa come to mind) that are successful on the field.

    Every kid has the potential to do well, and yes, the system has to fit the player. In this way the kids of today are waay smarter than those of yesteryear. They analyze two-deeps, offensive styles relative to their skills, coaching staffs, and other things. Pretty heady stuff for 17 year olds to do. I/we wish Joey and all the recruits the best, and hope that they remember to get their education on the way, because the pyramid narrows drastically at the college (to the pros) level, and only the best survive to advance.

    Happy New Year all, and may all of Osu's recruits be 5*'s that succeed in becoming the best that they can be.

    Love the post, but what's this 'coach of the year' you speak of? I thought they eliminated all coach awards when Kirk Ferentz decided he was the greatest thing that's ever happened to college football. :)
