Landing Both Gwaltney and Mo Wells

Discussion in 'College Football' started by WoodyLives, Dec 27, 2004.

    Speed and Power:

    Would give OSU the Running Atttack of a Speed RB of Auburn's (Caddilac Williams) and the Power RB of a (Ronnie Brown).
    Can you imagine that combination in OSU's backfield?

    Landing both Gwaltney and Mo Wells would greatly improve OSU's Passing Game and benefit J.Zwick and would be down right scarry with both Gwaltney and Wells behind Troy Smith.

    I still think when it comes down to it with Gwaltney, OSU is no doubt his best option at playing early and a hellva lot closer to home for him and his family and Friends than going USC and OSU has to have a definite advantage over WV if Gwaltney wants to play Big Time CFB infront of National TV and contending for NC's and BCS Bowls every year. Same for Mo Wells decision to either play for a top tier program like OSU or a 2nd tier program in GT.

    I say Chances are Excellent OSU will end up getting both Gwaltney and Mo Wells.

    There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.............

    BuckeyeRob Yeah, whatever...

    At this point, I think Wells ends up at Georgia Tech. Unless the buckeyes look really good on Wednesday night. Wells latest is that its a coin flip. The buckeyes have gone from a solid lean to a 50/50.... I dont like our chances here.

    I think that we dont close Daniels, Wells or Ashley and yet once again, we limp to the finish line of recruiting. This trend is VERY, VERY troubling

    Wells certainly looks like he is leaning toward GT,as far as Daniels goes,I don't really care if he doesn't go to OSU,but I think he will in the end up at OSU.Ashley may end up at Penn State,that's where his father would love for him to go.Gwaltney will end up at either OSU or WVU.WVU has the edge because his teammate is going there and they have been in on him longer than any school.The biggest need is RB,without doubt,and next is a pass rusher.I would love to have Ashley.It looks like Lawrence Wilson isn't likely to come to OSU and now he says he wants to be a TE,not play defense.I wouldn't say this class is a failure if we don't get the top flight RB,but it hurts.We did get some outstanding O-lineman and it will be a top ten class.

    Maybe its hard for you to understand, but recruiting is a dang screwy science and kids go wherever they feel like going (which often changes weekly). NO ONE could have predicted Hodge going to Wisky. Plus losing him didn't matter, as we already have plenty coming in at that position.

    But as to your moronic "Tressel's has been losing recruits at the end for years now" post, read this before you continue making statements like that:

    Rob! Come in off the ledge! I'd be willing to bet we get 2 of them and a good possibility that we get all three!

    Be Easy!

    What?

    Look out!... the sky.... its falling.

    A great class isn't made on signing day... anyway... do we need one or both of these Tailbacks? Sure... but bitch because they aren't locked up already... not because some kid doesn't sign the right way on the last day. (How many of those kids really don't have their mind made up by then?)

    Hold up here, just one second..

    Last I heard, Gwaltney still has USC up near the top, though there are people assuming that since he said he doesn't want to sit on the bench, he may not go there...

    Next, I am not seeing all the doom and gloom from Well's comments that many seem to be having... quite the opposite, I see the 'coin flip' comments as a kid trying to build up suspense, which he is certainly intitled to since this only really happens once... As much as has been said about being a possible silent verbal, etc. leads me to think he just wants people to pay attention to his announcement, instead of ignoring it since everyone *knows* he is coming to tOSU...

    As for Wilson, we are far from out of that one (since I believe the last 'leader' he had was us).. but as many have said, he seems to be looking for reasons for staying at ND, and maybe the TE thing is just another way to justify it. But we never really had this guy either until Ty got canned.

    Where is all the negativity coming from here? I am not seeing it, just relax people and lets see how things end up in a month and a half..

    I cannot say this any more bluntly. If the AA game were tomorrow, Mo Wells would pull out an OSU hat. Look at his last 3 updates from insiders and rivals. On insiders, even after his GT visit, he said osu was the leader. He doesnt want to announce publicly until 1/15, so now he is saying both are even. However, all you have to do is look at the comments he makes about each school and connect the very obvious dots.

    If Rico Mccoy would opt for UT, OSU is still going to get a commitment from Lennix who plays the same position.

    Gwlatny would be a very welcomed surprise to this class, but I doubt anyone is confident in osu's chances.

    Daniels has been playing this game for some time now, and most folks really dont think he's coming here anyway.

    Ashley would sting a little, but DT is a deep position at this point.

    Taosman I am not a cat or a robot.

    I think we "draft" Wells and a "player to be named later"! Probably White or maybe Collins.

    Wouldn't signing both Wells and Gwaltney put Ohio State over the salary cap? :sneaky:
