    From reading the profile, nothing jumps out as spectacular except OSU is his favorite. Hopefully, he will impress the coaches enough to warrant an offer.

    His measurables seem better than his production - does anyone here know about his level of competition? Also, why he seems to like OSU so much? He went to OSU Nike, so his interest must be genuine.

    LJB- Jay plays for Greensboro Ben L. Smith- this is Div 4A in NC ( big school division)- so it sounds like he is playing against some of the better teams in NC

    Also, why he seems to like OSU so much?

    Not sure but he did mention in the Rivals article that he has been looking at tOSU for six months, so it doesn't seem like it is a spur of the moment infatuation- he even mentioned liking both JT and Dick Tressell (rb coach)

    You have to admire him for knowing what he wants and then trying to make it happen (Nike camp and summer camp)

    Thanks, Buckskin,

    Agreed. I hope that he has what it takes to score an OSU offer.

    Just a thought ... with his size, I wonder whether Jay is playing FB for his team, and getting a lot of runs up the middle. Usually, high school TB's have gaudy numbers, and his 5.6 average seems fairly low. Top notch competetion could be a factor as well.

    I like it, short back over 210 decent speed. If he can put on another 15 pounds without losing speed he'd remind me of troy davis.. maybe?

    Sounds like he is built like Liedowndell Ross and not as fast or heralded out of HS....who knows.....good senior season..and maybe an offer.

    tOSU is still Jay's favorite but they haven't been in contact much lately. He will make a decision in December.
  10. has he made a decision yet. I wonder if the coaches might show some interest, he weight earlier was 213 so maybe he has upped that and he could be a big back. I know we were his favorite, but havent seen any updates lately.

    Rivals has no update on him, and TheInsiders (SuperPrep) doesn't even list him.
  12. Well then I guess he probably won't end up in S&G then.
