furls wrote:Big weekend for official visits. Here is the rundown as I have read it online.Kyle Dodson had a great time and I think we may have flipped him. He hasn't decommitted from Wisco... yet, but I think it is coming.Tommy Schutt, 5* DT is rumored to have committed to tOSU. Looking for clarification.Jordan Diamond, 4* Official visit went great his post visit comments and tweets make it sound like he will announce for tOSU on signing day. Holding his final announcement until then.

furls wrote:BN reporting that Camren Williams (4* LB from MA) literally, just got in his car (out of nowhere) and is now on his way to tOSU on an official to start tomorrow. Williams is a PSU commit, that I am completely unfamiliar with. I hope he is better than Jamal Marcus because it sounds like Williams may commit and take up one of those precious few remaining 2012 scholarships.

JCoz wrote:The Fork union guys will also count towards last years class, but that wont matter, because we are backed up against the 85, not the 25. We need 6 people to transfer,get med hardships, or be dismissed just to get this class to 22. Taylor graham was officially #1 of those. Berry, Fellows, and McVey are expected to join that group. Still need 2 more just to get the planned # of commits into this class.So we are a ways off from being able to exceed the 22 that most expect, and this ignores the impending NCAA ruling. We could lose another couple ships still.

JCoz wrote:I'm not "worried" about the numbers, they are what they are. Remember that OSU is already self imposing 1 scholly this season and 2 the next two years, so its already affecting the numbers. The 6 I mentioned does NOT account even for that 1, let alone any additional that the NCAA imposes themselves. And I disagree as regarding schollarships, we should be hearing from the NCAA in the next week or two, and I absolutely believe they can increase the scholly loss for this year above the 1 we've already offered to dock ourselves. I don't think at this point a bowl ban would affect this season, but they definitely could dock the scholly numbers further.The numbers will work out one way or another, all I'm saying is that nobody should expect more than 23 in this class, and we are a long ways away from being able to even fit that.

JCoz wrote:RE: Dunn, I just want to make one commentRemember the mantra when we lost out on DePreist and Hicks? I do. It was "if there is one place we can afford to lose a guy its LBer, we are stacked!" Sounds awfully damn familiar right now with regards to Dunn. Only this time we will be lining up against him every year for the next 4.We need to keep him if we can.

danwismar wrote:Furls is right that in a normal year those five guys don't sniff offers from OSU. And in hindsight maybe it would have been better to wait, but the 2012 recruiting effort was absolutely hemorrhaging a few months ago, and they couldn't have known what they know now.Considering how the underinformed national media were talking last summer about how OSU would be entering a sustained "down" period, and how no established coach would go near the program, and recruits would shun the school, and blah, blah, blah....this minor step back on the recruiting scene is going to be a blip on the radar. Even at the crying area of need...OT...Meyer will bring in some bodies...hopefully quality ones like Dodson and/or Diamond, and then next year all the top tackles in Ohio are already Buckeye leans. Fragel has officially switched to OT for 2012 as well. They'll be OK, if thin, with Norwell, Mewhort, Hall, Fragel, Brown, Underwood (and some good freshmen, we hope.)

I saw Beanie, Clarett, Sutton, RInger in HS and I just don't see it with Dunn. I bigger and slightly better Erick Howard (Narth Canton Hoover), IMO.I hope I'm wrong if he's a Buckeye but I just am "meh" when I have seen him play. Also, friends and those around the Glenoak program and area haven't exactly raved about the kid. Have to take that for what it's worth but it is a data point at least.
