    OK, this is a "premium" article, so I can't read/see the entire thing; but, apparently the drift of the article is:

    Just maybe Ohio State is still in the running for Tony Grimes.

    There are two other crucial factors in this recruitment from the Buckeyes’ end, coming in the form of the head recruiters not named Ryan Day:

    1) Al Washington, who heads the Virginia area for the Buckeyes and has been recruiting Grimes for more than two years ever since his time as a Michigan assistant:

    “We always talk to Coach Washington. That’s our guy. We talk to Coach Washington at least once a week,” Glover said. “When we talk, it’s not always recruiting, recruiting, recruiting. It’s how are things going? How’s your family? We can talk like real people. He doesn’t have to approach with a sell mentality of ‘I need to sell the program.’ We’re past that stage. It’s always good to be able to have somebody like that on your staff. He’s a great coach, but he’s an even better person.

    “The good thing about it is I know there’s somebody there that I can trust with my son. If something is to jump off, he’s safe going to Coach Washington. And my nephew Teradja (Mitchell) is there.”

    2) Kerry Coombs, who instantly made a good impression when he visited Princess Anne High School in January, coming in guns blazing and not lacking self-confidence with his Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights-esque approach: I’m the best there is, plain and simple.

    “He said ‘I’m the best defensive backs coach in the country. That’s just how I feel, and I’m not gonna apologize for it,’” Glover said. “And no shame in it. I love that. … We want the best coach to prepare him to get him to where he needs to go – who understands what he needs and how he can get there.”

    Again, the Buckeyes still appear to be behind the other three programs here and probably won’t be able to win out if they can’t get a visit from Grimes. When you only get one visit – one that happened more than a year ago – and the rest of the recruitment is done through phone calls, there’s only so much you can do. But all things considered, Ohio State sits in a decent place until that visit can happen.

    He's not committing until December...if we can't get a visit before then I would surmise OSU is truly the "hat on the table". If however due to his late decision..and I don't think any team will change his and Dion's minds on that..we should have a good opportunity to get the visit. Then Coombs, Wash, and Day can work their magic.

    Ohio State is just a hat on the table here....
