    I was thinking that too. But Redfield seems like more of a pipedream. He seems all ND. And it seems like a either/or of bell and Worley. That's a good problem to have

    Redfield is the closest you'll get to a lock NOT to come here.

    That's a very realistic finish. Mitchell, Johnson, Gibson, and Worley are locks IMO. The only way one of them doesn't end up here is if Gibson doesn't qualify. I like our chances with Quick and Bell. Things seem to be trending our way. If we finished with those 6, we would probably be #1 on a couple sites.

    Hate the fact that Green is considering TSUN, and even naming them his leader.

    Just an fyi... ESPNu is showing a couple of shows of the Under Armour All America practices. Should be a good chance to see the players behind the scenes.

    Regarding Green... he looks like a complete RB. Size, speed, etc. Hopefully he doesn't end up at scUM.

    If we get all the kids I listed above, they can take Green. We'll still stomp them every year...

    This. Was one of the kids that it's been fun to follow for a while, especially since he was a Buckeye and Eddie George fan.

    Hate that he's probably heading north.

    If one of the six does not come, then if there is any open slot, instead of "banking" it, perhaps it could be used for Mr Patchan?

    On the flip side, I also wonder if the reason Mr Worley is holding out might be because his offer is not committable because the coaching staff is waiting to see if Mr Bell will come?

    If we get either Worley or Bell, any problems in the back four will not be due to lack of talent.

    I totally agree with that. And for a while I was wondering why worley hadn't committed yet, but I figured he was waiting like most glenville guys do. But when you break down the numbers I don't think we can fit him and bell in this class. Either would be fine by me, Worley hits like a Mack truck and bell is just a ball hawk. He reminds of a young ed reed

    Between Quick, Gibson, Elder and Timmons I am comfortable with the situation at WR.

    Any two from those four would be an outstanding finish in my opinion.

    My prefernce (in order) would be:

    Quick- 50/50 but you gotta feel good about Meyer's ability to close here. Although Strong stayed at Louisville this year, the chances of him remaining there for the length of a college career seem slim to none and hopefully Quick realizes that and is drawn to the chance to compete for championships.

    Elder- He is flying under the radar for most fans for whatever reason but he is dynamite. He's not a pure receiver but I don't think Meyer's offense requires many true receivers in the first place and the more versatile playmakers the better in my opinion.

    Timmons- Basically Elder light right now in terms of recriting hype but as we all know hype has next to nothing to do with success in college. I would be extremely happy to see what Timmons could do in Columbus if given the opportunity.

    Gibson- Pure burner but the window of opportunity for him to qualify is getting smaller and smaller. His back up options (especially WVU) are telling of his academic situation in my opinion. I am preparing myself for this to fall through but would be pleasantly surprised if it doesn't. We already have a pure burner in Taivon Jacobs and I like the added versatility that either Elder or Timmons would provide for the offense (although we already have Jalin for that role as well).

    Like I said at the top, you can't really go wrong with any two of those four.

    We can't go wrong with any of those 2! That's a lot of speed and talent that will be added to the roster. Meyer should be able to find the dynamic players he was looking for on the roster last year, with the 2013 class. Can't wait to see how we finish up.

    That may be true, but it does need some. Look how inconsistent his last offense at Florida was and our offense this past year was because he couldn't get consistent play from the passing game.

    A large part of that was on Braxton.
