    I guess i'll play devils advocate this time. I don't want him getting a scholorship. Robbie is a great QB pick up possibly, i'm happy with smith and Zwick for 2 years also both.

    If this kid is good enough to be one of Dukes big signings that means he is good enough to go to the NBA after 1 year of college and we won't ever get to use him much (if at all) anyways.

    I would trust the quotes from his father vs. the quotes from his basketball coach who would have a selfish interest to see the kid go to Duke....


    Wrestle141, if you use your logic, a comparative would be that we had a shot at the #1 wr Derrick Williams but you wouldn't take him and would rather stand pat with our current group. If you got a shot at a star like this, you gotta take him. In addition, Thad Matta would want him as well so you have to factor the double benefit...

    i don't think he's the type of player that could only play 1-2 years of college basketball and be a high draft pick; he's a good player (5 star on rivals), but he's not a superstar. from what i can gather, he's a better football player than basketball player, so he might be better served picking a school with top b-ball AND football programs.

    i doubt there is really anything to this, but but it would sure be a big boost to osu athletics if he decided to come here.

    I didn't know Derrick Williams was also a 5 star basketball prospect? I don't mind a TOP football player coming and staying 3 years (a Ginn so to speak) because in order ot get drafted after that third season it means you've proved yourself on the feild until the NBA changes their rule you don't have to do the same in basketball.
    I just see too many college basketball stars getting drafted after 1 or 2 seasons and i'm not sure he would make any impact during that time aside form being a big name to possibly bring in that big WR this class needs.
    If we land him thats great and all, i'm just a huge Ringer fan at this point and don't want to see him lose a scholorship to a player i'm not sold would play.
    From an OSU as a whole standpoint I guess if the kid wants to come you'd be crazy to turn him down. I just don't follow basketball very close but it'd be huge for the university and program there, I just wish they could set it up so it cost the basketball team their scholorship instead of the football teams.

    141, one of the guys that follows hoops over at bnuts said this guy's sport is definitely football. He outperformed Henne (who is a year older than GP) at a camp last summer. His hoops skills compare to that Wojo dude at Duke and they say he is a step slower but a better shooter--not NBA early entry material....sounds like he is realizing he should not give up the football career...

    I guess I should do more research before saying OSU shouldn't offer one of the top QB's in the nation next time :)

    I can remember at least one coach who was adamant about where a certain FB player would end up....that player ended signing 3000 miles to the west of where his coach claimed. :wink:

    I wish one of the so-called OSU recruiting sites would investigate this. Sometimes I think Kurelic and BSB are pretty lame. This would be a coup for OSU. Is Matta in contact? I guess we won't know anytime soon.

    This kid could very well be a prolific passer in OSU's "new scheme" and could be groomed to be Troy's successor...
     
  13. Here is what Kyle posted over on the bn premium basketball board:

    "I just got off the phone with Greg's mother, and she is going to have Greg give me a call this evening.

    I told her who I was with, and she goes, "oh, well we're from Ohio so we most certainly appreciate the fact you're from Bucknuts. We know all about Ohio State".

    She was in a hurry to cook dinner for the family, and her other son coming from college, but she did say when I asked that he was still committed to Duke, but they are still talking things over. She didnt want to speak for Greg but said she would have him call me.

    Hopefully i'll have more later this evening."

    I guess they were originally from Ohio or something. Maybe this could turn into something big for us.

    Thanks CBF40, at least ole Kyle is making an effort. I asked him to ask GP if he watched the scUM game...

    dont get your hopes up.

    plus, do we really want a kid from a family that can "appreciate the fact that you're from Bucknuts"? :p
