It seems like there's been a run on commitments lately. Joel Hale, a defensive tackle from Indiana, committed to OSU. He held an offer from Michigan to play the 3-tech DT spot.
no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
They are on a run because the other big boys on the block in the Midwest are in flux, UM and ND. The only choice a recruit from this area has if they want to stay in the Big Ten at a big program is OSU or PSU, and apparently PSU is taking this year off in recruiting.
I officially dislike you.
on the Soup.
And it looks like it is going to fill up early. I know we are up against OSU for a lot of guys, but it should be easier on us soon due to the number of open spots they have left.
They probably still have more open slots than UM does right now.
Michigan probably has about 10 spots open.
OSU probably has 5 or 6, depending on if people leave early.
I stand corrected. I thought they were in for a large class this year.
We'll see. According this this chart, the class will have room for 19 plus whoever leaves early (realistically, I would assume that Posey is gone and Williams is a strong possibility, if he has a good year). So figure 20-ish is the magic number. Of those, 14 spots are now taken (discounting the possibility of any future decommits).
So it's not that big a class, and it's almost full.
Hale is a good one, too bad ND isn't taking a DT this year or it might have gotten interesting
yeah I am sure Hale wanted to join Notre Dames super amazing defense over Ohio States
Irish, I hate OSU, but this guy's got a point.
Also, OSU has a very good class going so far, especially on the lines (the most important areas, IMO). They will continue to be good for a while.
