    I know you said it was a wishlist, but NPF is a wish and nothing more at this point...if he leaves the south, it will be to ND barring a miracle. Carman is MUCH more likely and more game-ready imo. Agree with most of the rest but hoping we at least get one of Smith or Parsons, losing both to PSU would sting.

    Parsons is not coming to Columbus.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Yeah I tend to agree with you so I'm really hopeing we land Smith. And I know NPF is a pipe dream but I just wished we landed as many elite guys on the O Line as we have on the D Line.

    That OU game really bit us in the butt.

    Really? I tend to think that it made some people show their true colors and maybe did some weeding out ahead of time.

    Really was a disastrous game on multiple levels. Only good that came out of it was showing to the coaches definitively that the passing offense was broken.

    Pass defense wasn't much better... If I'm Cook, Woodbey, Proctor, Banks or any other 2018 recruit at DB that OSU is pursuing, I would think I could be in the 2 deep as a true by mid season. Okudah has to be close to seeing time with Sheffield and Arnette playing so poor

    Unless there's more going on behind the scenes, I'd take Parsons, Carman, and Smith in a heartbeat.

    To show just how badly Ohio State is dominating recruiting this year (so far), per 247's composite rankings Ohio State is #1 with a score of 298.55. The #2 position is held by Texas who is nearly 20 points behind with 279.16 points, despite having the same amount of commits as Ohio State (18). The Pedsters are at #3, but have five more commits (23) and are over 26 points behind (272.11). Ohio State's average recruiting score is a full two points better than Texas (95.08 to 93.02), and about four and a half points better than the Pedsters (90.65). Michigan is at #14 with 214.11 points (14 commits) and a recruit average of 89.81.

    EDIT: We also have 12 players in the top 100 (3, 13, 19, 22, 25, 33, 36, 37, 62, 85, 86, 98), including 3 who are #1 in the country at their position, 3 who are #2 at their position, 2 who are #3 at their position, and 3 who are #4 at their position.

    Texas hot on our heals. Really came out of no where. Last year was a blast getting so much talent out of Texas, this year I feel we need Cook. Next year, that's gonna be tough. Herman can recruit, they got the snake oil salesman, and when in the hell did Stan Drayton come back to college?

    That's fine, it seems like every year the staff changes up their state to target in accordance with the main school's coach being on the hot seat. A few years ago it was GA(we whiffed big time on a bunch of those kids) as well as South FL(we had better results), last year it was TX, next year and this year seems to be TN. Losing out on TX won't be as big of a loss, considering OSU still can hit the Mid Atlantic (VA, MD, DC), NJ, as well as continuing to being able to pluck kids from FL(it will be interesting if that trend continues with Miami winning), GA and TSUN. And it helps that the staff will even go to never before recruited states as well

    VA, MD, DC and NJ are much tougher to recruit when PSU is good. They have a deeper history in those areas than Ohio State.

    They have a deeper history because LJsr... Let's not get it twisted and think that JoePa himself went after those regions hard. LJsr is a legend in VA, MD and DC, and if you notice what MANY of the top recruits in that region say, they remember their older siblings, coaches or even parents being recruited by LJsr, or have heard stories about his coaching past in the DMV. If it wasn't for LJsr, Ped St, wouldn't have such a foothold in the DMV, now OSU is in that fight. It only helps that OSU now has their foot in the door with Good Counsel, DeMatha and The Bullis School, and has been able to go toe to toe with Ped St and MD and win a 5star kid like Isiah Prince

    That’s partly true. Penn State has been recruiting this area for a long time with great success. I’ve lived down here since 1980. Their recruiting success over the years down here goes way beyond Johnson.
