    I'm not sure if this is the right spot for the post but.. I have a family friend who just ran a 14:52 in the XC 3 mile race as a Junior. He is a big fan of Ohio State, but hasn't heard from them at this point. I also noticed that the entire XC roster comes from the state of Ohio, does anyone have an experience with the process? Does Ohio State recruit nationally?

    Dang, that's a pretty good time. Have any other schools been in contact with him?

    I'm not sure how the new coaching staff approaches recruiting, especially out of state. With some sports like cross country and track it is not out of the ordinary for recruits to contact schools they have interest in... that is sometimes their only avenue to garner interest since most schools don't put on camps like football does. The worst they can say is "thanks for your interest, but no thanks", although with the kind of time your family friend ran I'm sure there would be a bit more of a discussion than that.

    Just like any other sport, most elite runners want to go to the great programs... Wisconsin, Oregon, Oklahoma St., Colorado, etc. Since Ohio State is not a historically good cross country program, although Robert Gary made some big strides to change that before he was fired, his philosophy was to attempt to get the big guns in Ohio first and land a few solid out of state recruits. Again, I'm not sure what the new coaching staff will focus on.

    Congrats to Donny for being selected to run at Nationals! The National Championship meet is this Saturday in Louisville, KY. The women run at noon and the men around 1:15.


    Big Ten Teams
    Michigan State

    Big Ten Individuals
    Hunter Mickow, Illinois
    Jannis Topfer, Illinois
    Donald Roys, Ohio State
    Sam Masters, Penn State
    Johnnie Guy, Purdue
    Matt McClintock, Purdue

    Of other note, since there are numerous MAC alum on this board, Toledo women were chosen as an at-large team and Michael Heller of Kent State and Julie Accurso of Ohio also qualified for Nationals based on their Regional places. Accurso was the Regional Champion and has a shot at winning the individual National title.

    Really great season overall for Donny, regardless of how he runs at Nationals.

    I had high hopes for this year, thinking that a top four of Roys, Meyer, Fallon, and Brajdic could all potentially be all-region and then hope one of the young guys stepped up as a #5. Turned out that Meyer left the team, and Fallon and Brajdic both disappeared (injury, decision to redshirt??). I think if you plug in those three, OSU would have been right there with IU, MSU, and ND (who had Rae DNF). But that obviously did not happen.

    Many of the young guys showed some promise at one time or another throughout the year, especially Hannaford, Sabo, Pupino, Hanle, Tanfeff, and Redd. You add in Brajdic and maybe Fallon (not sure if he still has eligibility) plus perhaps an impact freshman and that is a decent group. Wisconsin loses all its big guns, as does IU. MSU and Purdue both have young promising teams, but this group will hopefully be right there with them. Michigan looks to return a strong team.

    Dumford has already pledged to ND and Glines to Michigan. Hopefully OSU can land at least (and hopefully both) of Wharton and Prakel. I have heard that OSU is in on Burcham from WV, which would be a massive get if it happens (4:02 miler). Jacob Thomson out of Louisville Holy Cross is another huge stud, not sure if he has any OSU interest, but with Allen coming from Louisville I hope maybe he has some pull down there.

    But for now, good luck to Donny at Nationals! He was 122nd last year - a top 100 finish would be a great cap to his XC career.

    If anyone is interested, here is a link to watch the CC National Championships for all three divisions live:

    Each division will have its own link on that page once coverage starts. For Division 1 the women's race is at noon and the men's race starts approx. 1:15.

    Donny Roys finished 118th at Nationals (30:53.6). Just to tell how close the field was, if he would have ran just 10 seconds faster, that's only 1 second per kilometer in the 10K race, he would have cracked the top 100.

    Oklahoma State ran away with the team title (72 points). Wisconsin (135), Colorado (158), Northern Arizona (191) and Florida State (238) round out the top 5. The other Big Ten teams running today were Indiana (18th, 456), Michigan (23rd, 518), and Michigan State (31st, 755, good for last place).

    Where is Mr. Track:huh: I thought that the Buckeyes would place a little better than 8th in the Big Ten Indoors Championship. Maybe I was wrong with my hoping:( I was also wondering if anyone knew why this championship was held in Geneva Ohio... strange.
