    His Rivals profile has him visiting Columbus on January 14th and it says he has a Buckeye offer. :osu:

    Biggers also has offers from Penn State, Iowa and Kansas.

    His coach compared him to Miami receiver Roscoe Parrish. In this update Biggers is listed at 5'11", 178 pounds. Biggers would like a shot to play QB in college. He starts at corner and quarterback for North Miami Beach.

    Kansas is his favorite (he just got back from his official). He is supposed to visit tOSU in January. He claims a verbal offer from the Bucks.

    His size is not an issue if he has the frame to build upon...obviously his film is impressive enough to warrant attention.

    Besides Teddy Ginn just survived an entire season at 170 lbs.
     
  6. Yeah but 159 is a very low starting point. Also Teddy has legit 4.4 speed. This kid could get killed.

    That's what a redshirt year is for...strength and conditioning.

    Good point. When I graduated HS, I was 5'10" and 135 (bascially a white Ethiopian). I gained nearly 20 pounds in Air Force basic training (6 weeks). When I was in my best shape, I was 6'0" (grew 2 inches between mid-senior year in HS and age 20) and a solid 195 with a 355 lb bench. This kid could put on 35-40 pounds of muscle in two years if he put his mind to it.

    He goes to W. Michigan this upcoming weekend, tOSU (1/14) and Iowa (1/21) for his last visit. His other two visits were PSU and Kansas. Kansas is the leader.

    He watched tOSU's bowl game and feels that even though they struggled this year they came back strong.

    Kansas is the current leader and Iowa is probably no. 2 (they are the last visit). He feels that Iowa has done a great job recruiting him.

    EJ's HS coach knows Coach Snyder well. Coach S didn't get a tape until late in the game. But Coach S liked it enough to visit EJ and offer him a schollie.

    Schools are recruiting him to play CB.

    EJ is to arrive on campus today. According to his coach, EJ has already visited PSU, Kansas, and Western Michigan but PSU is out of the picture. He was a two time all-Dade County selection and came within three INTs of breaking the county record. EJ had 53 tackles and 8 INTs as a senior. Most importantly, Biggers is fully qualified. mark Snyder is in charge of recruiting him although tOSU received a tape late in the recruiting process.

    If Biggers has an OSU offer he will commit this weekend or in the next week. I have no inside info or anything I just have that feeling.

    What stands out is "two time all dade county"! He is big time!

    Your feeling probably comes from the fact that Kansas is his current leader. You have to like OSU's chances of luring a recruit away from the Jayhawks.
