    I don't like it...not at all. I just saw the main page and saw " '05 IN WR Selwyn Lymon is a ... " and thought "Holy shit! We got Lymon!" only to find out he's not a Buckeye. I agree that the thread title should reflect if a recruit has commited elsewhere, but do not have it just like it is when a recruit commits to us. I would suggest thread titles of recruits who commit elsewhere should simply have "(Committed: School Name)" appended to it, thus this thread would be now titled " '05 IN WR Selwyn Lymon (Committed: Purdue) ".

    I'm glad I could get your hopes up. :biggrin:

    We'll save the "is a ...." for Buckeye verbals.

    Lymon is paying his own way at Purdue and is progressing towards returning to the football field. Academics are going well.

    ? Purdue sophomore Selwyn Lymon set an all-time Notre Dame opponent record with 238 receiving yards (along with eight catches and two touchdowns) last Saturday in what could be the coming-out party for the next premier Big Ten wide receiver.
    The 6-4, 210-pound speedster (4.4-second range in the 40) possesses the type of ball skills, leaping ability and vertical speed to become a future first-round prospect. A quarterback and wide receiver in high school, Lymon can also be used to run a few gadget plays.
    Lymon, named the top prep prospect in Indiana by several outlets two years ago, paid his own way to school last year and sat out the season to concentrate on his grades. He will be three years removed from his high school graduation in 2007, and he certainly will draw a flood of area scouts at his games next season.

    Manningham, Lymon To Miss Action Forced To Face His Fears

    John L. Smith facing tough stretch of games at Michigan State; stadium renovations create home advantage

    A pair of electric Big Ten receivers will not be on the field Saturday but for very different reasons.

    Michigan's Mario Manningham and Purdue's Selwyn Lymon will be sidelined this week as their teams' take on Penn State and Northwestern, respectively.

    Lymon will also likely be forced to sit out on Saturday after Lymon was accidentally shot in the eye with an air gun at 1 a.m. Monday morning. Lymon and some teammates had been shooting the guns while wearing protective goggles, but Lymon was injured after removing his eyewear.

    Lymon is expected to miss up to five days, leaving his status against NU questionable. For the season, he has 21 receptions for 422 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

    "I don't think my players will be playing with air guns anymore," Purdue coach Joe Tiller said.

    Lymon didn't redshirt, so he could transfer without lossing a year, and maintain 3 years of eligibility.

    As a father he doesn't like coaches comments, and as a parent you might think you want to get your son out of that location, IF (and i know it is a big if) Lymon showed interest in transfering to OSU do you think the Bucks would share interest?

    TheStoicPaisano But I didn't, so it doesn't

    Lymon paid his own way at Purdue in 2005--that's when his eligibility clock started ticking. If he transfers to 1-A, 2008/9 will be his only years to play. While I feel for the kid in this situation, he's had a litany of poor choices and who knows if his family even has the funds to pay for more schooling, as a transfer within the conference disqualifies him from receiving a scholarship.

    Bolded part is really why, if a transfer takes place, you can look for it to be to a non-Big 10 school.

    The more important factor right now is for Lymon to get healthy, then face whatever music is coming his way. BTW, post regarding this latest incident was also made to the Police/Legal Blotter.
