    Lakeland's Ricquan Southward Picks Up 2 Offers

    Not a whole lot of info at this point...confusing offer/timing to say the least but maybe the staff, and in particular Coach Drayton, felt this was the kind of kid OSU couldn't pass on...

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Seems like an odd time to offer another WR.

    I can't imagine the Buckeyes would take Epitropoulos, Lewis, Thomas, Stanford and now Southward in the same class.

    Five WRs seems like a bit much to me, unless the staff isn't feeling so hot about Stanford or are expecting Epitropoulos to play on defense... or both.

    Or perhaps its the staff subtly putting some pressure on Stanford to lock his spot up in the class... who knows.

    This one seems highly unusual considering his offer list.

    Considering the fact that we have a grand total of 1 kid committed to us from outside the state (which would have been zero until yesterday), I have a feeling this has more to do with getting Stanford on board.

    First year at receiver, 238 yard game two weeks ago. This kid could be a diamond in the rough.
  6. I think Stanford is in the fold either way. Maybe the staff is thinking if they stay in place that they wanna move to a wide open spread offense. Also, Epo could play safety. He looked very good on film on D. IDK, it is a confusing offer nonetheless.

    Edit: found a few clips staring at 11:48.

    Looks pretty good IMO. Quick feet, and runs angry for a WR.

    He gets up in the air nicely on the fade routes. Plays like a bigger receiver than his height. If we get both Southward and Stanford, it's possible that one (or both) would redshirt to spread out the WR classes a bit.

    Maybe they realize Urban is going to bring the spread option next year :biggrin:
