    According to Rivals, tOSU (Coach Tucker) just offered. He is trying to visit West Virginia, Ohio State, scUM, Cincinnati, and Pitt. He will be at the scUM/tOSU game. He was a Buckeye fan growing up and says they may have the edge.

    I know we need DB's (sounds weird to say that), but come on hook Ringer up. No way he should have to wait this long.
     
  3. What is with us offering so many dbs. I mean we have already got JamO, Jenkins, and Russel is very close to a sure thing we are is leader, also we are still in on smalls. Not saying that he is a bad player, I have never seen him play, but we don't have many scholarships left and we still need rb's and lb's.

    The only thing I can think of is maybe there is something going on with E.J. that we don't know about and he won't be back next year.

    I seen this kids bio a few months ago on the Michigan database. Michigan has given this kid an offer so I assume he has alot of talent. He may be a sleeper like Alex Barrow. I hope so anyways.
     
  7. hey goodguy it was rumored around about a month ago HH said he might not be back next year.

    don't have any idea how true it is but HH don't make shit up.

  9. Westbuck I agree we need corners I was just thinking that he was a safety. I just leave it all to the coaches to do what they want and I just speculate. It just baffled me a little bit seeing as we are all of a sudden going after all these db's when we need rb's and lb's. What would happen if Smalls, Rowell, and Russell all decided to verbal. Then what would we do, turn them down and look like the bad guy. It is the same reason i thought we were not recruiting ringer, but if they do it with the secondary why not running backs also.

    I'm sure Smalls, Rowell, and Russell all know when they must commit by. More likey they've been told their spot may be filled up at any time. Happens all the time.

    He looks to have the frame to put on 30-35 pounds of muscle. A 6'0" 205 lb safety isn't big but isn't all that small either. Hell, Whitner is only 5'11" and 185 lbs, and Salley weighs 205 lbs at 6'3", and we know how they can hit. Having a safety with 4.4 speed can't hurt...

    PEOPLE NEED TO STOP CARING SO MUCH ABOUT HEIGHT! If the guy can play, he can play, period!!

    The top 3 safeties in the NFL:

    Ed Reed: 5'11
    Roy Williams:6'0
    Brian Dawkins: 6'0
    also dont forget doss who was 5'10. height is not that big of a factor if you have the intangibles to play safety. Last time I checked we have some 6'2-6'3 guys (Salley, Mitchell) but most consider Whitner to be our best safety. A couple inches doesn't suddenly make you a great football player folks.

    Thanks crazy, I hope EJ doesn't have his heart set on turning pro. Or is he thinking of transferring?

    tsteele316 Mr. Such and Such

    i highly doubt he could turn pro after being bumped out of his starting job.

    i dont see how transferring could help him. once fox is gone next year, he is the frontrunner for the cb spot.
     
  15. No specifics were said just that he might not be back next year.
