Some care, Some dont.. OSU gets their hope to takeover or be next in line to Braxton Miller...And Michigans defense gets a new chew toy ..Go Blue
I did not make this headline up
His name's not C.J.
Also, he goes to the same high school as Shavodrick Beaver did, so he'll probably decommit around Christmas.
When you're loaded with CFB knowledge it happens..CJ Barnett entered my mind..system overload..realized it quickly..not as quick as you Mags but quickly
How's he doing?
I wish his name was spelled Shavedrick
Makes sense for a Meyer offense. Hopefully his INTs will stay high.
Shav Beaver was from that school as well.
EDIT: Damn you Magnus and your quicker typing skills.
Eighth grade keyboarding class FTW.
If you were on Bucknuts or RCMB that would be some serious bragging.
That would be "eighth grade
typing English class"
The one where they don't write reasearch papers about research
One Word: Mavis Beacon
I think Malik Zaire is a better prospect. Regardless, who knows what Meyer can accomplish in a league with defenses and without a Tim Tebow clone.
The SEC doesn't play defense?
I should've put an or instead of an and. The no defense part was for when he was at Utah.
Look at his roster at Utah, it's not like he had a team of superstars that rolled over cupcake teams. Maybe he didn't coach in the most competetive league, but he still coached a team that wasn't a powerhouse to begin with...
You know he went to Florida after Utah right?
Weird that Meyer went with Barrett when there were two solid options instate in Chapman and Zaire. Although Barrett has been performing well at camps and such and I'm sure he'll be decent.
I thought I read Barrett out performed Shane at the Dallas camp (but I could be wrong).
I've heard talk of OSU taking one of the Ohio QBs this summer, but it seems like they have limited spots.
Barrett, like Morris, struggled during the Elite 11 camp (1st day). He rebounded with a better performance the following day at the Dallas NFTC like Morris did. Unlike Morris though, he did earn an Elite 11 invitation by the end of the weekend, but I have a feeling there is a lot of politics that go into the selections as only Texas QBs were selected. Knowing Morris was going to attend in Columbus, I have a feeling he will get one there.
Per ESPN, Barrett had the best day on the second day and pretty much looked better than just about anyone. Shane struggled with accuracy. He did better on the second day, but he wasn't in their top 5 out of staters. Just wasn't his weekend.
Swoopes was the MVP of the camp as in the article below:
"Also among the most improved on Sunday was Longhorns commitment Tyrone Swoopes (Whitewright, Texas/Whitewright), who earned an Elite 11 invite after being named the quarterback MVP of the camp."
As the article indicates, Barrett really struggled at the Elite 11 camp (1st day). Shane struggled with his accuracy just like Barrett and neither were finalists in the Elite 11 camp day. But most reports about Morris were that he performed well on the 2nd day just like Barrett. As I said above, I think there is some politics in the Elite 11 invites that were given out on the 2nd day at the NFTC camp with some attendees like Morris expected to attend other camps in the future. Cooper Bateman outperformed both QBs and did not receive an invite. I will pretty much guarantee that Shane Morris leaves the Columbus camp with an Elite 11 invite.
Man, quit pretending to be a Michigan fan. Everything you post pertains to OSU. It's fine to be an OSU fan on here but pretending to root for Michigan is just annoying.
Who gives a shit.
Always appreciate a Happy Gilmore reference
For a 4 star talent (Rivals #6 QB #134 Overall) his offer list seems strange. Was his recruitment never that open?
9 offers - Ohio State, Arizona, Baylor, Illinois, LSU, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Texas, Texas Tech
I think he was hoping for/planning on a Texas offer. I beleive he was planning on going to their junior day expecting to get an offer, only to have Texas sign Swoopes the week (or maybe a couple of weeks) before. He then pulled out of the junior day. Probably had some impact on his recruitment.
Texas got 5 star Tyrone Swoopes, A&M got 4 star Kohl Stewart, and Baylor got 3 star Chris Johnson. And that still leaves out 4 stars Kenny Hill and Cody Thomas. What a deep year in Texas for QBs. But it looks like the Big 12 powers are focusing on different QBs other than JT Barrett in Texas. JT Barrett may not even end up being one of the top 3 QBs in the state.
How do offer lists work anyways? I assume it's basically on the kid or someone close to him to email Rivals with updated offers--which would basically make offer lists total BS. Certain kids would spend the time telling Rivals each time an offer came in, some wouldn't, and some smaller number would lie to either a) have some fun with people or b) to raise their profile in the hopes of garnering more offers.
I'm going to assume that the question is posed to someone who is near the player, if not the player themself. The recruiting site would ask something like -
"Who are you interested in playing for?"
From that they would develop a list of schools that the player has said or shown interest in. Then they would post updates on official offers as the interested schools made them public. Surely you could dupe the system like you said, but I would guess that most people take it pretty serious.
Shane Morris has a really weird offer list for the #3 QB prospect, but we all know why. He was only ever going to play for U-M. Schools that offered him are as follows - Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Cinncinati, Michigan St. (!), Syracuse, Tennessee, and Toledo.
I guess that what the guy above me said makes sense about Barrett, that he wanted to play for Texas, but got beat out by Tyrone Swoopes. I guess if he would have spent more time vetting suitors, his offer list might have shown so. I guess I have the answer I was looking for.
Morris also has an offer from Alabama. It may not show up on some recruiting services but there was some Twitter discussion between Morris and TomVH about it.
Is he better than Morris? No? Okay cool.
I thought they were recruiting Jalin Marshall as a QB?
I think Marshall's headed for wideout.
Marshall is being recruited as an athlete. Might wind up at QB, might be a wideout.
If you watch Marshall's tape, he really does nothing to impress when he throws the ball, which isn't very often, so I wouldn't count on that happening a whole lot, if at all.
Ondre hungry. Yum yum yum.
you'll have 'Blue Mash' served up. Feed me!
I hope they take another QB this year, then we have a very good shot at Deshone Kizer who may be the best player in the state next year.
Deshone is already a M fan. I think we go hard after him and Chance Stewart goes to MSU.
Looks like Ohio beat out the recruiting powerhouses Baylor and LSU for his services. His offer list is not good. Zaire and quite a few other dual-threat QBs had offer lists of much better quality.
He's got maybe the best blend of athleticism and passing ability in Texas this year. Swoopes (#1 QB in Texas) has the higher ceiling, but Barret will be ready to play quicker out of the gate.
That won't really matter though with 2 to 3 more years of Miller at QB. I'd rather have the higher ceiling guy then a guy who is ready to play right away but is still going to sit for 2/3 years.
I care, thanks for the post. Please include links next time. -)

I'm far from a recruiting expert, but Barrett, Zaire, and Chapman all looked equally good to me. Obviously OSU staff felt differently - otherwise I would hope they would give the edge to players from Ohio (Zaire/Chapman) over players from outside of the midwest, with all else being equal.
