2005 '05 OH LB B.J. Travers (Iowa signee)

Discussion in 'Football Recruiting' started by MyDixieWrecked, Mar 10, 2004.

  1. Saw an update on him on bucknuts. He is getting some good attention from some big time schools: tOSU, U$C, Oklahoma and PSU. I know attention is different from offers, but I have always rated recruits on their offers instead of stars or stats.

    Anyone know anything about him or have a picture?

    I see us taking one maybe two LB's in this class, maybe Lenix and this guy or a stud OOS LB. Sounds like he might be a canidate to slide down to the line with his strenght and size at age 17.

    Position: LB
    High School: Westlake HS
    (Westlake, OH)

    I couldn't find a picture of him but he does sound like a pretty good athlete and that is quite a list of schools that are looking at him. In addition to football, he throws the Discus

    Discus competition

    He had 126 tackles as a sophmore and was honorable mention Division II last year as a junior

    Another Ohio LB to keep an eye for is Lance Phillips of Wellston

    I know lots!

    Man, ask me question about him...I go to highschool with the kid. I'm not quite sure what you want to know, so if you just post some questions I'll give you the answers your looking for. He went up in his bench press max a while ago, he is up to 450 lbs. now. and although I'm not exactly sure what the competition was called, I know he now holds some sort of highschool bench press record. I believe he had over 150 tackles this year. I can get a picture if you would like as well.

    It sounds like B. J. is getting some big time interest from tOSU, Iowa, OU, PSU and USC. tOSU visited today and will visit again next week according to the latest Insiders update.

    KWalsh- any news for us on B. J. ?

    BJ claims in the latest Rivals update that he was offered by Petey Carroll- he also likes OU, Iowa (who is about to offer), PSU, scUM, Pitt (offer), WV (offer). He will camp at tOSU, OU and possibly USC.

    His C-bus Nike performance really must have impressed schools

    Travers has recently been offered by Pitt according to the latest Rivals update. BJ's coach stated he has run a 4.7 40(Travers, not the coach :biggrin: )

    Rivals now has video of Travers and the thing that stands out about him, IMO, is what a hitter he is. He moves pretty well for a big man and has a nose for the football and when he gets there the ball carrier knows about it. Seems like he could be the run stuffing linebacker we lose Schlegel and D'Andrea to graduation.

    Rivals- premium

    He is up to 25 offers- tOSU will know by the end of the month if they will offer

    He will camp at tOSU
  15. just had an update from theinsiders, he has an iowa and U$C offer. Sounds like he would be a buckeye if offered. If good enough he could fit in behind Kerr perfectly. I am pulling for this kid to get an offer, I mean if he is good enough for U$C...[/sarcasm]
