'05 CA S/RB Shawn Oatis (UCLA signee)

Discussion in 'College Football' started by Buckskin86, May 10, 2004.

  1. Any word on how the visit went?

    There was some discussion on the Bnuts premium board that indicated it was going well. Devin Jordan hosted and it sounds like he spent some time with Nate Salley. Shawn and parents got to meet some of the ex-captians that were in town. All in all it sounded pretty positive. But tOSU has some tough competition from UCLA and ND- he likes those schools as well.

    He had a great visit but Shawn commented that "ND might be a little better fit". :( He will visit UCLA next and a decision will probably come soon after.

    He really liked the academic options at tOSU- since he is not sure what his major will be, he liked the amount of choices available to him at tOSU.

    Same basic info- it is down to tOSU, ND and UCLA and he should make his decision soon after his UCLA visit.

    Yet another Oatis update. He calls his visit to Ohio State "awesome" and his visit to Columbus will make his final choice tough. He says he couldn't go wrong picking any of his top 3 schools and he has to go with his instincts and may even flip a coin to help make his decision.

    Oatis had a great visit to UCLA this weekend and is close to a decision (by Wednesday). He is leaning to UCLA and says they are the best overall fit for him. He is close to many of the players on the team.

    Well at least it is not the Domers! :ohwell:

    Can't fault the kid for picking the home team. He's handled things the right way. Maybe UCLA can turn things around and give USC a little competition.

    damnit, I was hoping this kid would play in the S&G. I guess that just opens up another spot for a RB.. lol.

    It just (offset) the prestige of Notre Dame.

    Say what? Notre Dame hasn't had anything resembling prestige in football for almost a decade. Since 1994, Notre Dame has a 73-46-1 (.613) overall record, three losing seasons, 1-6 in bowls, and not finishing higher than 11th in either poll let alone a national title, but is prestigious. Meanwhile, Ohio State, with a 98-28-0 (.778) overall record, no losing seasons, 4-5 bowl record, a consensus national title, a Heisman Trophy, and finishing in the top five in both polls five times, yet isn't prestigious.
