JD Weatherspoon and Jordan Sibert have been granted their release by Ohio. The timing is great for schadenfreude because Ohio didn't have any schollies available so they weren't really recruiting anyone for this class and lost out on the few big names they wanted for Sullinger's assumed (now available) vacancy. They are only in play for one HS recruit, Della Valle is there starting today, and two transferring freshmen. It's a good thing Matta doesn't use his bench since he'll only have 9 scholarship players next year.
"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
