    My preferable finish is Wilson, Hunt and Bell.

    My predicted finish is Wilson and Hunt.

    But let's see what happens this weekend first. Not convinced Smith is out yet.

    Any reason you'd take Hunt over Skipper? Or do you just think Hunt is more likely to commit?

    This was from last week. Is Hunt just your preference?

    I'm not sure I buy that, nor do I believe that OSU is doing the deciding.

    Are you implying that someone affiliated with Bucknuts put out an unreliable report?

    I. am. shocked.

    (I will also be more diligent about not posting their stuff in the future, I should have known better in the first place.)

    I'll admit I've only seen cutups of Skipper game film. But while Hunt is a bit undersized for a tackle, I still think that is where he ends up. He looked phenomenal at the Under Armour game...he took Greg Gilmore just about anywhere he wanted to. He also took care of Caleb Brantley every chance he got. He even slowed down Robert Nkemdiche. I was just very impressed. I think he's got great feet and a tremendous punch...and I see him as a future right tackle. Skipper's height is a bit of a red flag for me...will he be able to handle smaller, hybrid DEs at that height? He struggled against them at the O-D Bowl practices. Also, although this is far less of a concern, but I just wonder about the ability of someone that huge to stay healthy over the course of his career. Add it all together and I prefer Hunt.

    My only thought was that Skipper is a more natural tackle based on measurables who moves well and has a mean streak- but, uh, you win.

    What a wild and wonderful ride Ohio State recruiting has become in December and January under Urban Meyer. Wow!

    Not to mention the other ten months which are equally impressive.

    anzalone, neal(lewis not devonte), quick, and gibson...OR

    Mitchell, Johnson, Wilson, Robinson's??

    it seems the more we lose...the more we gain!

    Prefer Wilson and the Robinsons + Bell

    Think it will be just Wilson and Skipper

    Think Smith is not gonna make it and Elder is only getting in if he is the last man standing

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Your preference seems impossible. I can't see how we have 3 spots left let alone 4. Seems like we only take 3 if Wilson, Bell and an OL prospect is the combo otherwise it may only be 2 more. At least that it is how it appears to me. 82....ugh. With a recruiting machine like Urban this really hurts.

    With the potential for transfers and kids enrolling early the number is very hard to project. Transfers likely wont show up until the end of this semester.

    When all is said and done I think you can stack this 82 up against any 85 we have had in some time.

    I think they have 3 spots left....i don't think bell is coming to osu..so he is eliminated in my mind...

    I think realistically it will be wilson and someone else...I just don't think osu would turn away wilson, skipper and the robinsons if they all wanted in

    i think you take all 4 and work it out for the 82 number
