    Grew up rooting for Tennessee but hasn't heard much from them. Has an unnamed top 5 but it does include LSU. However, their depth chart is working against them.

    Potential bad news: “I want to go to a school that really throws the ball a lot,” he said.

    For the record I dont want any receiver that ever states:" I want to go to a school that throws the ball a lot". You may say that I am counting a lot of kids out but it is just my take. If a kid is good enough to get open and make plays he will get the ball thrown to him. This is a team sport and the whole F. Davis crap from last year has left a nasty taste in my mouth with kids like this.
     
  5. I doubt we have much of a shot at him, he will likely stay in the south. Naples- I wouldn't use too broad of a brush there, all WR want to catch the ball, if he is unwilling to block that is another story. It is similiar to a B-Ball player saying I want to play for a team that puts points on the board, that doesn't mean they are unwilling to play D.

    Dixie....

    It started with the National Media giving OSU crap for not throwing enough or scoring enough. Then you had the coaches that recruit against us saying that a kids strengths are wasted in an offense like ours. Then you have Krensel and Olivea making comments once they have left that our offense or SYSTEM didn't operate the way that it could of. All of this combined paints a picture of how we are perceived or our reality in many people's minds.

    There isn't a wide receiver on the earth that doesnt want to play in a system that throws the ball a lot. The difference is that there are kids that don't say anything and want to be a part of something special. These are the kids that typically say: "what ever is best for the team" or "I don't mind redshirting" or " I will play where ever I can help the team". These are the type of kids we are landing and I want to see it continue.

    If we have to explain our offense to other kids and that is more important than team then they should play somewhere when individual stats. matter more than team. I would like to think that OSU is not that type of place.

    you act like the media and such are lieing....but in reality, they are absolutly right. if i'm a wide receiver from somewhere like north dakota, and i have offers from osu and usc, guess which one i'm gonna pick? usc in a heartbeat, unless i want to be a learn how to block.

    not that it matters as long as we win, but we're never gonna have a very explosive offense as long as tressel is here; which in turn will make us lose a lot of blue chip wide receivers. but when you really think about it, whats the point in recruiting blue chips if you don't utilize them?

    Westbuck04.... I could see a reciever choosing Ohio State over USC for the following reasons.

    Ohio State is tradionally in the Top10 almost every year. Some recruits won't mind getting the chance to start for a high profile school like Ohio State.

    Per previous NFL drafts of WRs the number of catches or playing for a wide open offense appears to have no bearing on draft position. In the old days before ESPN 24/7, bulletin bds, sports talk radio and the internet the only way to get alot of pub was to play for an open passing team. Today, its alot easier to get noticed even at the small schools.

    Jenkins route running and other skills didn't seem to suffer from playing WR at Ohio State. In fact, ESPN commentator M. Irving said Jenkins ran the best routes out of all the receivers...including USC M. Williams.

    And something I always wondered is injuries. Does a WR that catches twice the average essentially play 2 seasons in 1 year? The WR maybe taking twice the hits?

    IMO...I think the issue of conservative offense affecting recruitment of WRs is way overblown. We will not get the depth that USC will (Thats what it will affect) but there will always be a few excellant WRs who want to star on a high profile program like Ohio State.

    That is exactly my point.....how the hell does one know that we wont have a couple 600 yard plus receivers in our offense? If we get a running game going and offer a more balanced attack we very well could have receivers putting up some numbers.

    Naples, it's because guys like Chris Carter, Joey Galloway, Jeff Graham, Terry Glenn, David Boston, Michael Jenkins, and Santonio Holmes are only known for their blocking. :p

    everyone always brings that up, but how many of those guys were coached by tressel? that would be 2....

    i agree with the previous posters though; we'll always get a few impact receivers. my point is we're going to lose a lot of those guys as well. but if we can get the type of guys we got last year (dukes and lyons), we'll be fine.

    I think their point was that the Ohio State program has historically been looked at as a run-first, pass-seldom system, and not just under Tressel.

    He has eight offers including tOSU (sounds like just a verbal offer) and scUM. He has no visits setup but wants to see Miami and FSU.
