    tOSU and JT have been in recent contact. JT called the other night and told Kyle that he was excited about his highlight tape.

    This kid is a phenominal football player. He is even a better person. I wouldn't have thought the Buckeyes would be after him. I heard Kansas was interested and Arizona was extremely interested. Good luck to Mr. McCarthy.

    McCarthy is the next Todd Boeckman, in my opinion.
    I can see Tressel working the Greyshirt, Redshirt, Start/Compete to Start plan.

    Folanator Brawndo's got electrolytes...

    We are the only big time program to offer. Looks like a great kid with excellent GPA, is he a player?

    Cardinal Mooney won the state championship in DIV IV. He played QB AND RUNS A 4.47 40!! He has been getting a load of mail in the last couple of weeks.

  8. is this not stoops team?

    Yes it is. Stoops has had the inside track on this kid because of the connection. Walt Harris offered him as soon as he got the Stanford job. This kids stock is going through the roof.
     
  10. could he play corner?

    I do not buy your premise that a good athlete from a small school rarely contributes. Many colleges because of their geographic location and recruiting areas are largely made of kids from small schools. In fact, in my opinion, many kids from large schools get an advantage in the recruiting process because they come from areas where the local media "pumps their tires". Many more of these kids are busts than the small school athletes who get recruited. In fact, many colleges due to their geographic location and recruiting area are largely made up of kids from smaller high schools.
    Good athletes rise to the top no matter where they play. Getting recognized and getting the "pub" is much harder for the kid not in a large media outlet.

    Yes he can play defensive back. Aaron Pettrey is enrolling in the spring which I believe goes to next years schollie count. IMO this opened up a spot for McCarthy. He has impressed alot of people lately.
     
  13. Good news. It could mean we are going to pass on Thomas also.

    Pettrey's delayed enrollment could have opened this additional spot...

    Solid pickup IMO. The kid is an athlete but also has those instincts that cannot be coached. I watched the Ferry game when I was home for Thanksgiving and came away impressed.

    Mooney had another player who was impressive also...played TB and CB but he may have been a junior

    I would like to remind people that athletic ability isn't everything when it comes to football. This kid is very intelligent and has a great attitude. He is a team player and displays awesome leadership qualities. Rivals and the Insiders might give him 2* but if JT gives him a schollie he is worth it.

    Alot of the so called "must get" players bust because of their egos. It's refreshing to see a kid from a smaller school that has his head screwed on right get a schoolie. IMO this kid will be an outstanding player at OSU because he has abilities that cannot be measure with weights, stop watches, vt leap tests.
