    Son of NFL Hall of Famer Howie Long...supposedly already receiving serious attention from OSU as well as a possible verbal offer.

    A poster on BN that started the Long talk claims that Kyle has an OSU verbal offer and that UVA offered him in his 8th grade year. He also said that he knows the UVA program well but is enamored by OSU, as is his dad Howie Long:biggrin: . Should be one to keep an eye on and he sure passes the looks test.

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    UVA may be tough to beat in this one. Kyle Long's high school is all of about 2 miles, as the crow flies, from UVA's Scott Stadium.

    If my memory serves me correctly, however, I think his football coach is from Ohio and follows Ohio State. It's been a few years, and I was enjoying a few adult beverages, but I'm pretty sure his coach joined our little Ohio State alumni gathering at a BW3s in Charlottesville to take in an Ohio State game, and was telling me about Ohio State's recruitment of Chris Long when he was a senior in high school.

    FWIW, Chris Long is already a stud at UVA.

    He's by far at the top of my wish list. I really really hope we get him.

    I think I'm the only person left on the face of the earth without a Myspace page.

    Just wanted to let you know that Kyle recently took a trip to Notre Dame. It appears that the Irish will be jumping into this race, too.

    Kid does look like a top tier kid and I believe he wants to play baseball in college, too. He was All-Conference and All-District at OT as a sophomore.

    Do you know Kyle's interest in Notre Dame?

    I thought so as well but it appears OSU is in very good shape now. Doesn't hurt that Howie really likes OSU and that's good news if his coach is an OSU fan.

    I wish my school had "STAB" across the chest.


    Intimidating.

    That would be huge if we could land a five star OOS OL.

    Is there any insight on why Howie Long is so high on tOSU as a program?

    Specifically the O-line to NFL production? The general way Tressel runs the team, looking for good people as well as good athletes? The tradition? Something other than the above?

    Paraphrasing the comments attributed to Howie in regards to JT: "He's one of the few coaches out there who will send you back a better man than you sent him."
