    msj2487 You bred raptors?

    That's very encouraging if it holds true to the end!

    It looks like LSU is the prohibitive favorite here, but he would be a great pick up after his official here with the recent departures at DE and Hale looking less promising than before.

    Does the waterboy down at Northwestern run a 4.5 too? They look to be insane, any competitors down there in the sunshine state for the state championship? Thanks.

    Buckeyedynasty I'd hit it!

    I'd be surprised if he doesn't end up going to Miami when all is said and done. Looks like a Miami DL to me but I've been wrong before. :)

    Miami already has verbal commitments from four DT's (Marcus Forston, Micanor Regis, Jeremy Lewis, and Justin Thompson), with Thompson being a "soft" verbal. I really doubt that the 'Canes will sign five DT's in one class.

    LSU has only one DT commitment so far (Cordian Hagans), but the Tigers did sign four DT's last year, so I'm not so sure that they are in the market for too many additional DT's.

    It is interesting to note that both Justin Thompson and Ben Jones have Miami, LSU, and OSU as their three top choices. Given the "numbers game" at the other two schools, I would have to think that the Buckeyes will be able to land one of the pair.

    Since a lot of people like how we're sitting with Mobley, would we take another DT(Thompson) or combo lineman(Jones) at the expense of maybe a pure DE(Coples or anyone else on the staff's radar)?

    I consider Nathan Williams to be a DE at this point, so I'm cuious how the staff will approach filling out of d-line class.

    Thanks for the info. I hope your right. We could certainly use some DT's here at OSU.

    My personal opinion is that we take 2 of Mobley, Jones, and Thompson if possible. We really do need some DT's and while Goebel helps, we aren't done yet. There is also a decent shot we don't get any of them as well, though I think we get one more. Also, I could see Mobley as a DE/DT combo and we have a shot at Coples.

    From CaneSport...talks about how several of his teammates being committed to Miami could impact his decision. Miami leads but LSU and OSU are just behind.

    What I read was that Miami and Ohio State lead, with LSU a close third.
