    In a recent Insiders update he said he would camp at tOSU- hopefully this remains true- Obviously we are in the market for a TE.

    BNuts article on Hardman- prem link

    He is camping at tOSU this summer. It sounds like it would be a dream for him to get an offer from the Bucks. But he might have to show a bit more speed for that dream to come true.

    Here's a new Bucknuts article on Derek Hardman:

    Gary Housteau on Derek Hardman (6/30/04)

    He seems to understand that an OSU offer is probably a long shot, but he has the right attitude about it:

    I wish that more kids would feel the same way; recruiting is a tough business, and I'm sure that the coaches don't like passing on kids who grew up as fans of the Buckeyes.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read his update today. Does not appear to have Big Ten TE speed. I'm no recruiter though, I could be wrong. Sounds like a great kid and someone who would be a perfect 'Tressel recruit'. Would definitely fit the mold of OSU blocking TE, but you have to at least show that you are a threat in formation or defenses can scheme elsewhere.
