    Agreed on all...have no idea on Bell and could easily see him at Tennessee too. There isn't one expert out there who has made a prediction on Bell without prefacing it by saying it was just a guess.

    If that list works out to be true I will probably have to call the Doctors office after about 4 hours.

    Meyer and Withers had the early relationships with Bell and they have remained the best relationships the whole time. The way Urban runs the program as "tough love, honest, family" type atmosphere is the closest to the way his HS is run and Bell loves that. The fact that we also have early PT, great academics and a good path toward coaching someday is just too much for Tenn to overcome even with their location and his childhood loyalty. I believe we had the early lead and have maintained it throughout although it has been tested at times. I never bought the whole story about him being sold to Bama before Urban flipped him either. Until I see something different this will be my opinion. Withers is a bigger player here than many realize. Withers is a southern guy. He played DB growing up, has coached them during his career, and seems to have a certain way about himself that I can see Bell connecting with. I think when Bell commits we find out this played a pretty big role. Add in all the other points above and I would way rather be in our spot today than any other school. Again, just my opinion. I reserve the right to be just as wrong as everyone else!

  4. Bell has been saying best relationship, not longest. I have no inside info whatsoever. It is possible that he and the Tennessee staff hit it off in ways that he and the OSU staff haven't even in a shorter time frame.

    Dave Biddle on 97.1 The Fan said today, Elliott is still locked in to the good guys. Would be shocked if he flipped. Also said 95% chance for Wilson so he hit on that one. Clarke to UF... Elder to Purdue because of the bball scholly offer. Bell to Tenn.

    Bell to tOSU is certainly the trend according to the Rival's predictions. They've gone from 2/8 having the Buckeyes to 4/8 in a matter of 24 hours (3/8 have Tennessee and 1 has Bama). I feel like this is the opposite of Quick in that we have all the momentum heading into his announcement.

    Jacobs may flip to Maryland, hope we add Clark tomorrow now too. Keep Elliott and add Bell, Clark would be a great finish.

    Crazy day, tomorrow will be crazier. This class is awesome no matter what happens and I can't wait to see how it plays out. With that said I'll predict:

    Clark- Buckeyes
    Bell- Tennessee
    Elliott- Missouri
    Jacobs- Maryland
  15. RB07OSU

    RB07OSU #7 aka Vick the human joystick

    My final guess:

    Clark- OSU
    Elliott- OSU
    Bell- UT
    Jacobs- Maryland
