    WoodyWorshiper THINK, Before You Speak Former College Pick'Em Champ

    Agree 100% with the statements of the sexual predator label being applied to someone in this situation. I worked at Childrens Services for 10 years and dealt with countless situations similar to this one, wehre a 16-17 year old gets strung up for having sex with a more than willing 12-13 year old that you could put on a college campus and she would fit right in. Never did, and never will condone such actions, but would be very hesitant to crucify as well. Sexual predator labels should go to true pedophiles or criminal rapists who force an unwilling or underage person.

    I'll use myself as an example. There are 6 years age difference between me and the Mrs. Looking back at what she looked like when she was 14-15 years old, your damn right I'd wanna get on that when I was 20-21. Realistically, that could have happened, I could have gone to prison for 2-5, registered as a sex offender, began dating her, and ultimately marrying her and having a family, and I'd still be wearing the offender tag right on my forehead.

    Anyway, my best wishes to the Torrence family and glad that things turned out well for DeVoe. I'd still love to see him in the S&G, but more importantly, would love to see him see this whole ordeal as a learning experience, and LEARN from it. DeVoe has his whole life in front of him, and it should be a very good one if he chooses the right paths.

    Peace.

    This would be good all the way around, but I think Cincinnati would be an even better fit.

    The Ohio MAC schools have added some exciting players lately. Devoe at
    Akron, Morgan Williams (Toledo) was a beast at Canton McKinley. Kent State picked up Sal Battles as a recruit last year.

    I've heard alot of GREAT things coming out of Akron visitors lately. I hear the campus is coming along very nice and the stadium is going to be a huge addition to the program. The campus used to just be in the thick of everything but now I guess the campus is pretty closed off from the town itself now so it feels more like a College Campus.

    I can definately see Akron pulling in some talent such as Torrence or maybe those tweener between BCS/Mid Major recruits.

    You can walk from campus to downtown and actually, Akron u is buying up most of the downtown buildings to make the campus bigger for Dorms,apartments and Akron u buildings. Your right , Akron u is stepping up big time. Recruits will give Akron u a great look now

    Hopefully this marks the beginning of a new trend. As long as the trend doesn't hinder OSU's recruiting. :tongue2:

    Congrats, Devoe.
