    Oatis said that ND and tOSU are the two teams locked for visits- he will keep his options open on the rest of his visits

    In a new Rivals article, Oatis confirms that Ohio State will get an official visit.

    article was done by Wallace who is a national writer with no bias toward ND or tOSU-very optimistic comments from Shawn-tOSU and ND are his two solid favorites and both will get official visits. It seems like Shawn has respect for Tress, Coach Tucker and Fickel. He has also discussed tOSU with Ryan Williams. Ryan relays info from tOSU coaches to Shawn. Ya gotta love it :)

    It sounds like Ryan Williams is already a great ambassador for Ohio State - first generating interest from Bemoll and Sanchez, no working on Oatis. Keep up the good work, Ryan!

    Thanks Tipdog - the lead-in to the article was misleading (and I can't find my BSB password right now....)

    nice article from Duane

    He will visit tOSU on Oct 22nd and ND on Oct 8th- his two favorites

    He became interested in tOSU after the NC and he is a fan of Doss

    Ryan Williams and dad are helping to recruit Oatis to tOSU

    It's nice to see the 2002 NC making a difference in the way we're looked at by out-of-state recruits. Both Bemoll and Oatis have mentioned it.

    Oatis just got back from an unofficial to Arizona and really enjoyed it. He will now make an official visit there in late October.

    Keep hearing he would be the perfect compliment to AM-W. Hope his interest is sincere. On a side note, interesting the mention of Arizona. I hope Mike Stoops can transform that school into a power. USC needs the competition out on the left coast. That league is a cake walk for USC, both on the field and on the recruiting trails. It would be nice to see the west coast kids show interest in someone other than USC, Texas and Oklahoma.

    The Pac-10 is a flavor of the month league when it comes to recruiting. USC is currently top dog, but a few-4 or 5-years ago, UCLA and Washington were the top dogs. California, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington State are all recruiting much better now than they were 5 years ago, and Washington is in a bit of a recruiting slump.

    I agree with your statement. However, this time around it will probably take Pete Carroll and Norm Chow leaving for USC to slump again. Just too much going for them right now.
