    By BK...favors Florida, Georgia and Clemson. He would be willing to listen to OSU or USC if they offered.

    By Crabtree...coaches from Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Clemson, Arkansas and Stanford have been by Sanders' school. Favors Georgia, Florida and Clemson.

    Once again he says OSU and USC would be in the mix if they offer. Supposedly Petey is coming to visit soon.

    I wish I had an emoticon of a sailing ship...

    I feel bad for Zebrie if tOSU is his dream school...but not too bad. He will be fine, and has a plethora of offers from which to choose.

    You have to think Carr is going to try and get Moore and Mealer to work on Zebrie if at all possible...

    Yeah...for me, it is frustrating to see Ohio kids even consider them. I am happy for Moore and Mealer and tOSU never offered, but thinking of them playing in AA is like thinking of your cousins marrying each other - it just doesn't feel right and everyone's stomach turns at the thought of it.

    UM is a good school though.

    I don't understand this line of reasoning at all. It seems to me that you'd want the Buckeyes' biggest rival to sign a bunch of players who were not able to earn offers from Ohio State. I get worried when Michigan signs Ohio kids whom the Buckeyes offer, not when they go after "second tier" recruits like Mealer, Moore, and Sanders.

    Well your missin the point.Its MICHIGAN.we dont want them to have anything.

    I hear you...but would they be "second tier" in a 20+ schollie limit recruiting season? I don't know...Moore's film is pretty sweet and Mealer has the measurables and by all accounts would have had an offer had he waited a bit. Of course I'd rather lose a recruit that tOSU didn't offer at all than lose one we offered.

    Moore/TWoodMad's possible off the field escapades have been well documented, but I thought Mealer would end up w/ an offer, especially with Long leaning at the time to baseball (and then subsequently committing to Free Shoes) and Jenkins still "publicly" a WVU verbal.

    LJB, what I don't want to see is Ryan Brewer part deux=some kid we don't offer/want torches us in a nationally televised game. Hasn't happened as of late, and here is to hoping it doesn't happen anytime soon.

    Well, you're kind of missing the point as well - they are Michigan, and they are going to get good players. They are not going to start recruiting a bunch of "two-star" prospects and become Northwestern any time soon. But I'd rather have them get the players that "we" don't want, than out-recruiting "us" for the top in-state talent (Boren, Manningham, Crable, Burgess, Massey, etc.). That way, in theory at least, their good players should be less good than "our" good players, and "we" should be able to maintain a competitive advantage on the field.

    IMHO, yes they would be. Mealer might have had a shot at an offer, but regardless of class size, you take Adams, Brewster, Shugarts, and Jenkins over him. I don't think that Moore or Sanders would have gotten offers even if Ohio State had 25 schollies to give.

    Every year, on average, Ohio State signs about a dozen Ohio kids; ten times that many Ohio kids will sign with other D-I programs. Ohio State simply can't sign every decent in-state prospect. Thus, there will always be potential Ryan Brewers out there, regardless of which kids receive offers.

    My gut says Mealer, Moore and Sanders weren't getting offers from OSU...period.

    I was realy hoping that we would of offered moore.

    Would you rather have Koger or Moore? I know what my answer is considering the staff offered one and not the other. And recruits notice when other kdis who are being recruited at the same position commit to a school they are looking at.

    No one likes Ohio kids going to Michigan. That being said, if Sanders, Moore and Koger all end up at UM, good for them. It's a great school with a great football tradition and it only adds a little spice to the rivalry.

    By Phil Kornblut
    OL Zebrie Sanders (6-6 273) of Clayton, OH plans to visit USC this summer unofficially, and he plans to make an official visit to Clemson for the Labor Day weekend game against Florida State his father said Sunday night. Along with the Gamecocks and Tigers, Mr. Sanders said his son has been talking highly about Florida, Florida State, Stanford, Southern Cal and Michigan.
