Some decent tweets on EZE's Mom's twitter page indicating he will stay with tOSU.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Bama took an athlete that is going to play DB today and apparently is no longer recruiting Bell (they'd still take him, don't get me wrong).

Looking like this one is going to come down to his very strong year+ relationship with Meyer versus his non-existent relationship with Butch Jones at his childhood favorite/home school. Both school offer early PT, which is the other variable. Worst case at OSU he plays sporadically for a year and then two starting positions open up.

After watching Bell in the all-star game in January, I'm convinced he could be the second best cornerback on the roster the day he sets foot on campus. Those cover skills and ball skills are almost wasted at safety.

Still feeling like OSU strikes out to end the season. I hope I am wrong, but I think:

-Bell to TN
-Wilson to Oregon
-Clark to FL
-Elder to elsewhere (staff does not seem to be chasing)
-Timmons to elsewhere (staff seems disinterested)

I am OK with whiffing to finish the class. It is fine the way it is. Any of the top 3 above would make it better, but I am OK with the whiff. There are some that think that the Bucks feel good about one of Wilson or Clark and that is why they have backed off Elder and Timmons. I don't know.

Lots and lots of folks.

Additionally, Givler still thinks Bell to OSU (this isn't a solid pick, the info is always moving and never really nailed down).

I'd stop being so damn pessimistic Furls.

A friend of mine runs track with Clark and says it is UF, so there is that.

I am now confident in Wilson to OSU, still not there with Bell. Agree on Clark.

For anyone interested in checking out Wilson, there's quite a bit of video of him here:

http://ohiostate.scout.com/a.z?s=145&p= ... id=5205321

Looks like Elliott is solid too...you guys probably saw the O-H-I-O photo of him and his family that his dad tweeted over the weekend...

The offensive speed in this class is ridiculous...Marshall, Jacobs, Smith, Barrett, Elliott, Wilson, Baugh. (They say Barrett isn't super fast...like Braxton-fast, but still fast for a QB)

Looks like it's down to Vonn Bell, in or out. Best news I've heard lately is Bell saying he hasn't decided yet, but that the most important factor to him is the relationship with the coaching staff and the head coach. Most people who have been watching this situation say that Urban Meyer has, by far, done the best job of relationship-building with this kid. It seems to be that factor versus the tug of Tennessee, which has the advantage of being the childhood favorite, the preferred choice of the parents, and the proximity to home.

Speaking of J.T. Barrett, there's some decent video of him here:

http://ohiostate.scout.com/a.z?s=145&p= ... id=5813956

From what I can see, he looks a lot like a Braxton clone...though he seems to lack the arm strength of Braxton, he looks like maybe a more powerfully built runner, with excellent quickness and instincts, if not the same kind of pure speed that Miller has.

You wonder what kind of effect the knee surgery will have on all those attributes, and how soon he can be back at 100%. Good redshirt candidate, I'd guess.

Bell to tOSU is building a lot of momentum. These things don't stay quiet fast, so we should know more in the very near future. I would trade any one of our current commits for Bell. He is that good at a position of dire need.

Looks like WR Taivon Jacobs might be considering a switch to the home town school. It's never a good sign when you've been "recruited over" in your own class, and I think that's what OSU has done with the addition of Wilson.

Interesting news on Taivon Jacobs. I like him, don't love him. I think he is kind of a poor man's Dontre Wilson. That said, I would still like him to be in the class, but if he leaves at least that is another 2014 schollie.

11W guys are predicting (on hunches) Bell to tOSU.
Rivals guys are predicting Bell to tOSU.
24/7 Guys are predicting Bell to TN.

I tend to think Tennessee, but I am hoping.

Bell's recruitment has been one of the most quiet that I can remember. By now, someone usually knows the answer and it is usually out.

Three weeks ago I was convinced he was 'Bama's, but apparently he and his family (correctly) determined that he didn't need 'Bama to be successful. The kid is a very talented player and would develop into a Sunday player at any major school, so the word is that OSU and UT became more appealing due to better looking prospects for early PT (True statement). At UT he starts from day one. At OSU he is on ST (at least) on day one is probably pushing for serious minutes at nickel, assuming he doesn't just cause the staff to keep Bryant at his more natural STAR position. I could easily see Bell starting at FS next year.

I seem to remember, but cant say for sure, that Bell spent alot of time with OSU recruits during the All Star games. That is often a decent indicator as well.

I usually put a lot of stock in 11W as they clearly have someone on the inside at the WHAC feeding them. Some services have contacts related to the recruit somehow, 11W's are generally related to the staff, so that usually means that they are slaves to whatever BS the kid is giving the staff, but they are right ALOT (they nailed Wilson this weekend). So we have that going for us at 11W.

The fact that no one can definitely say the kid is going on place or another is maddening. I personally think that he ends up staying home. I think Taivon Jacobs stays home too. I am not sure the staff is really all that interested now that they have exactly the same player in Wilson.

Trey Johnson will be a Buckeye. Zeke Elliot seems less certain. I still like the Buckeyes odds, but it appears less certain today than it did a couple of weeks ago.

I like Elliot a lot. He is one of my top 5 or so in this class, that said, if we could afford to lose a guy at a specific position, RB is probably the one. I still want Elliot to stay, he is PERFECT for Meyer's offense, but there are a lot of pretty good RBs on the DC:

-Hyde (Sr.)
-Hall (sr.)
-Rod Smith (Jr.)
-Dunn (So.)
-Ball (rFr.)

Things would be a bit slim in 2014 without Hall or Hyde, but the Bucks are in on some pretty good '14 Backs too. The kind of backs that could make a big splash as true freshman, Jalen Hurd for example. Hurd is a top 10 national player type, and possibly #1 RB in the country.

This is Givler's closing words on Bell (yes this is insider shit I am sharing, but it's so meh I feel like it is advertising, especially since 11ws will steal it):

As of this afternoon, Bell had still not made a final decision, however I am told that a decision will 100% be reached before he goes to bed tonight. This is not going to be a "wake up and see how he feels" type of situation.

I think Ohio State has a lot going for themselves here but of course so does Tennessee with the proximity from home and being the childhood favorite.

I will re-iterate that regardless of what happens, Ohio State did the best possible job they could have of recruiting Bell. They played this one just as they should have, by showing Bell what a high priority he was, without the high pressure sales job that I think helped cost Alabama in this race.

Not going to change my pick. Will ride with the pick I've made for about a month and a half and if I'm wrong so be it.

Hey Furls, stop being so damn pessimistic.

I'll give Givler all the credit in the world on Bell, he's had that Bell to OSU pick out there for almost two months and never waivered, despite everyone and their mother thinking he was going to Bama.

Feldman tweeted about 30 min before the pick that he was a UT lock. Oops.

Jacobs flips to Maryland. Good luck to him and his family. He'll make a good #2 with Diggs there. And we can see him in the B1G in a couple years.

Yeah, everyone but Givler, Noon and Farrel took that Feldman tweet as the end of it all.

Feldman also dropped a line about Butch Jones having a good day. Lulz.

The Closer

Bell to OSU!


Heard the kid was impressive with announcement. If anyone has it or can link it I'd like to see that. Same with Clark.


NEW SMYRNA BEACH – Wide receiver James Clark, one of Florida’s most coveted uncommitted prospects going into National Signing Day, made Urban Myer and a legion of Ohio State football fans very happy on Wednesday morning.

Clark, who brought an enticing blend of speed, athleticism and academic success to the recruiting season, saved his decision as a secret – at least publicly -- for a National Signing Day signing ceremony at his high school’s auditorium.

In an announcement made for live television the 5-11, 170-pound slot receiver donned a Buckeyes cap. He chose Ohio state over Florida and Clemson.

“Ohio state provided the best opportunity to be successful on the field and for life after football,” Clark said. “It’s a place I felt happy at.

“It was really hard. Florida is a great school. Ohio State, I felt it was the right place for me. Coach Meyer told me, ‘Don’t come to Ohio State unless I was ready to make grown man moves. That’s what I had to do.”

Clark said he became very close to Meyer during the recruitment process.

“Coach Meyer and I are very close. He’s like a second dad for me.”


Family, teammates and New Smyrna’s senior class gathered for the announcement and cheered a highlight tape devoted to Clark and teammate Davarez Bryant before they divulged their decisions. The packed room erupted while watching a play in which Clark caught a pass in the left flat, dodged a defender and then reversed a field and ran back through the backfield and down the opposite sideline for a big gain.

Clark carried a 3.98 GPA while amassing over 2,000 all-purpose yards and 20 touchdowns in his prep career. He had 49 catches for 1,112 yards and 8 TDs as a senior for a Barracudas team that went 9-0 in the regular season and won its district. He was named to the Class 6A All-State team.

Clark has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.38 seconds and at 10.43 for 100 meters on the track.

Clark visited Ohio state on Jan. 25. He went to Clemson on Jan. 18 and to on an unofficial UF last weekend. He also took trips to Nebraska, Northwestern and Purdue.

I cannot imagine Elliott not wanting to be a part of this.

Clark has a 3.98 and before his senior film got him offered by OSU/UF/Clemson he was leaning Northwestern. Both him and Bell are really impressive kids based on every interview I've seen.

Dontre Wilson on the other hand.... well he's smart enough to be leaving Texas to get away from shitty people that are trying to drag him down.

Rivals has OSU class at #1

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/r ... 13/all/all

Scout will also when they revise the rankings shortly.

Losing Jacobs (a 3-star) actually raises their ranking. I believe they now have as many 5-stars as they do 3-stars...so the class should average 4.0. That's the best ever class at OSU, by that metric.

The Punter's 2 Star with Rivals (like all Punters) is going to hurt the star rating. That said, when you look at a recruits profile at Rivals you'll notice that they are rated a 5.7/5.8/6.0, etc. When you look at OSU's four stars you'll notice that most all of them (like Jalin) are as close as they can possibly be to a five star rating. OSU's fours in this class aren't really fours.
