furls wrote:Meyer will not rescind an offer in Ohio that would be suicide. The OHSAA coaches talk, so if you burn bridges at Pickerington you better believe coaches at Dublin, Davidson etc. will hear about it. Granted Dublin and Davidson don't have tOSU kids this year, but who knows who they will have three years from now.This is why I hated the Pat Eflin and Luke Roberts offers. They were bad choices. There is a reason their offer lists displayed only MAC Teams and B1G bottom feeders.As for the offers, Meyer is going to bring in some guys that we never even thought we could get. It is official that Dante Fowler is coming for an official now, FSU recruitniks are nervous. There is smoke.If I was Meyer I would pull every offer to every non committed kid and then reevaluate and reoffer. I am not sure if he has done that, but it would ethical.

I guess Pittman hasn't been speaking to the media so that is why we haven't heard anything about Meyer talking to him.

If the Buckeyes land Spence, I don't want Pittman.I think Pittman is a hell of a prospect, but how many DEs do we need? Last year we took a lot of DL last year: Miller, Hayes, Bennett, Farris and Hale. This year we have Washington and Spence, and it is likely that Josh Perry outgrows (or already has outgrown) his LB position. Perry is now pushing 6'5" 240lbs with the frame for another 20-30 lbs easy. Throw in the fact that Meyer is in hot pursuit of Dante Fowler, and well, all of a sudden depth at DE seems to actually be inhibiting depth elsewhere.
