    Nice find, Buckskin - it looks like Mr. Garner will be one to watch.

    Haven't had a chance to watch the video yet but this quote from Jamie Newberg stood out.

    I wonder if Coach Tressel would be interested in a QB with those qualities? :wink2:

    His video is pretty good, but arm strength definitely is the question with this kid. He can air it out deep, but doesn't deliver the short to medium range passes with a lot of zing; in fact, he seems to prefer the "touch" pass, which he can throw very well. He sets up well in the pocket, runs nice play action, and can avoid pressure (although he doesn't appear to be a running threat). BTW, he's a lefty.

    Of the QB's whom OSU is recruiting, he reminds me most of Bill Stull, but with slightly less arm strength and pocket presence; however, he is bigger than Stull, and for that reason alone, he may have more upside.

    If true, then Garner could be showig some "upside" already.

    FWIW, Garner is a teammate of Matt Lewis (6'2",245, 4.55), a DE prospect with a strong Michigan lean (and an offer), but with some interest in Ohio State (but no offer yet).

    Mainland is the ex high school of former OSU recruit, and recruiting blunder poster boy Buster Davis. Mainland has a quality program with a quality coach in John Moronto so kids who come out of the program are at least going to be coached well.

    Correct. I don't know how much (if any) the Davis fiasco will affect the current Mainland players - the snafu can be attirbuted about 95% to Buster's own actions.

    A bit off topic, but....

    Buster Davis was a highly-rated MLB prospect from Mainland in the 2002 class (in which the Bucks signed LB's D'Andrea, Hawk, Carpenter, and Stan White - not too shabby). At any rate, Buster talked large about starring with D'Andrea, Carpenter, et al., making the OSU LB corps the best in the nation, etc. ad nauseum. Buster would routinely say that he was 99% certain that he would be a Buckeye, but he would never commit to Ohio State. All of the fans (and probably the coaching staff, too) figured that Buster would eventually commit, but it never happened. Come Signing Day, the Bucks had two scholarships available, and three players still "on the board" - Derek Morris, Richard Washington, and Buster Davis (remember, this was before Big Ten teams could "oversign"). Well, Washington had already committed to OSU, although he was wavering at the end; and Morris was simply such a good prospect that the Bucks just had to reserve a scholarship for him; so.... Buster was the odd man out - no verbal commitment, no scholarship on Signing Day. As it turned out, Morris did in fact sign with Ohio State (meaning that it was a good decision to hold a schollie for him), but Washington backed out of his commitment and signed with N.C. State. Of course, this left OSU with an "extra" scholarship, which was then available for Buster. However, Buster was gravely offended that OSU had the audacity to withhold a scholarship from him on Signing Day, and he immediately withdrew the Bucks from any further consideration (even though Ohio State had been his favorite team all along - go figure). Buster eventually signed with Florida State, where he now toils in relative anonymity.

    Garner just returned from Miami's camp without an offer. He is not currently listing Ohio State as one of his favorites.

    Stanford is his current no. 1 with Ole Miss, Florida, L'ville, and Miami rounding out his favorite list. No offers yet from the Florida schools but it seems like Miami might be close- no mention of tOSU
