    I do think they would've done so had LJSR stayed on staff at PSU. The east coast, at least.

    Alright, it is time for the recruiting legend to deliver Gesicki, Thomas, and McDowell, and Holley. No pressure, I am behind coach Johnson even if only 3 of the 4 make it to tOSU.

    LJsr's recruiting ranking has been consistently in the mid 20's for years (which is pretty high since the lists are dominated by sec coaches, and a few years when ND had overrated players and USC recruited on a high level). In 2006 LJsr was the #1 recruiter and he finished at #8 in 2009. Not bad at all

    Before you go expecting that, do we have enough slots for 3 of the 4?

    "He's going to haunt the Big Ten": New Ohio State assistant Larry Johnson should make recruiting splash for Buckeyes

    [​IMG]


    From their time in the big-time recruiting game, Larry Johnson and Urban Meyer are no strangers. Back in December of 2004, soon after Meyer was hired at the University of Florida, coach Rick Houchens remembers Meyer showing up at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Md., to check in on receiver Derrick Williams, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2005. ... A few weeks after that visit from Meyer, Williams announced that he was going to Penn State. Nittany Lions assistant Johnson, one of the best recruiters in the last two decades in the Maryland/Washington D.C. area, had helped lock down Williams for coach Joe Paterno. Now Johnson and Meyer are going to be on the same team. "I was like, 'Oh Lord, he's going to haunt the Big Ten," Houchens said after learning of Johnson's addition to the Ohio State staff.

    I just watched the four minute interview with him posted at 11W and I think he's a great fcuking hire and see why Urban would want him.

    And really that was my point in telling pnuts that I'm not posting this stuff hoping the coaches will take my advice. Why do we post on here? It (hopefully) isn't to catch the coaches attention and let them know we should have their position...it is simply to discuss our beloved Buckeyes. Sometimes that means we will not agree with every decision made by the program and it doesn't mean we just shouldn't post when that happens. As an alumni and lifetime fan, I do take integrity seriously. I love my university and want to play by the rules in good faith. This whole "our coaches aren't saints either" argument is utter hogwash because everyone is framing my argument completely in their own terms. I am saying that I know recruiting gets dirty and nobodies hands are clean. I am also saying that Johnson's hands are dirtier than most. Urban having a "dream" and Johnson falsely telling a recruit that the school they want to go to is racist are not one in the same.

    And the whole "bonding with other black athletes" argument...so telling 17 year old kids that a university is racist when it is not is now somehow "bonding" now? I can't wait to bond with my kids and tell them that black people hate us and give them false statistics and anecdotes to get them on board with that :blush: Of course racism exists and if he really thought that to be the case at OSU, then I would understand. That wasn't the case.

    As for my personal knowledge, I only knew about Devon Still because my buddy in Delaware was very close to Devon. The entire process OSU lead until one day I get a message from my friend (who is also black and was being recruited by PSU) who was upset to hear from Larry Johnson that OSU was a racist institution (his words, not mine). Then wouldn't you know it, Devon had talked to A.J. Wallace and Navorro Bowman, who both had OSU on top until luckily Larry Johnson had warned them that if football doesn't work out for their black athletes, the university turns its back on you and wants to see you fail. Aside from my friends account, multiple other insiders had knowledge of the exact same information through other sources and chronologically, everything matched up. Yes I was not in the room when Johnson talked to these players, but I am far from going out on a limb and reading some random rumor mill post. If you chose not to believe that, that is your call.

    Edit: Sorry MD, posted this after you moved the discussion.

    That is his problem. How much money does he make? Saban finds a way. Gray shirt, walk on.

    I would probably relent if I saw articles such like "great player X wanted to come but there was no room".

    I didn't realize we were in the SEC and had no rules against that.
