|11 weeks 1 day ago||Ohio State||
This year's OSU class was ridiculous - small but the quality. I'm sure we can pull talent at the same level.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Thats since Texas started laying an egg||
I remember in the Mack Brown era, Texas used to lock up all talent in Texas before Senior year even started.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||IMG is a football factory||
Its crazy how they do it
|11 weeks 2 days ago||What happens in Vegas||
Stays in Vegas!
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Didn't notice as much||
But yes, seems like they have been a consistently top school.
Attack them with enthusiasm unknown to mankind.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Stop with the Najee threads already||
we haven't seen a recruit get this much attention since Dee Hart
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Value added = 0||
Seriously ... stop
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Cool story bro||
... but this is true.
I had an email address just with an admit.

That is all
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Good luck to him||
Would have liked to see him in the class.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||This is really scary||
The talent coming in this year at OSU is crazy.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Even before he has suited up||
that's a lot of confidence.
Unless you are speaking from pure rankings perspective.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Competition||
when you have that much competition at a school. It's easy to get guys to compete and eliminate mistakes. You are playing against elite atheltes day in and day out.
It is a virtuous cycle.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Since the dream is to contend for NC's and beat OSU||
I think we have to pick those two teams.
Sure we can have other teams in the mix. But the point of the exercise was to address the whole 'National contender' and 'Beat OSU'
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Eh||
You can argue the methodology
But the general guideline I went by was
- 98 = 5 star
- 95 = high 4 star
- 90 = low 4 star
Now you could have a 3 star (Khaled Hill) be a star and a 5 star (Derrick Green) flame out. But I'm guessing it evens out across all teams.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Yes we did||
But we didn't have an elite QB or RB. We had an average O-LINE
Some matchups will be hard.
Also remember, we lost those three games by a combined 5 points. It's not like we got blown out. And anybody will tell you that a few calls here and there and the result moves in our favor.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Slightly higher||
Not absurdly higher than Michigan though
- Michigan: 5 over 98 since 2013; Clemson 8
- Michigan: 21 over 95; Clemson 19
They have higher ceiling players. but should be about even. But the rest of the ACC is meh.
|35 weeks 19 hours ago||I'm surprised nobody is talking about this||
But that class is one of the best in decades (if it stays).
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Whats interesting is||
Ohio State didn't have a down year even with the coaching change.
We also have good recruiting classes after a coaching change and then peter out towards the end of a coach's tenure. Don't know if that is a trend or was it just Hoke.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Maybe a space issue||
Most of the population in NYC is in the five boroughs which are tight and cramped with little infrastructure for football.
Not saying this is a reason but may be a factor over the years.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Deep OT class?||
Looks like 2017 is a deep OT class. Wilson is ranked 16th nationally and 5th in the position - that's a scary lineup of OL
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Might end up working in a pin ball machine||
|1 year 12 weeks ago||His middle name 'Decommit'?||
Good luck Jordan!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Impressive offer list||
His offer list is filled with top programs - McLovin' it!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||This||
I have always struggled with this where I flip between if average matters more than total score or vice versa.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Hasn't NJ always been a good state to recruit from?||
Last year we had Peppers
This year we have Gary
Before that I remember Devin Fuller
While obviously not in the league of FL/ TX - it certainly is not to be underestimated.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Not sure if Rutgers would be as effective||
Michigan is awesome in all respect with the NJ connection
- Trusted local advisor (Partridge)
- Top headcoach in college football (Harbaugh)
- Great legacy and tradition in school
- Top academic and atheletic facilities
It is tough to ignore all of that.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I'm thinking WRs and DBs are somewhat interchangeable||
So I'm not THAT concerned with WR abundance.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||All your recruits are belong to us||
Seriously - its raining NJ recruits
|1 year 13 weeks ago||NJ2AA||
NJ is a nice pipeline to have - many good schools and top talent come through from there.
