Just saw this tweet...

JoshBDraft 4Star DE Sevon pittman Visit from urban Meyer tonight. Will commit to OSU & decommit from MSU

He is a writer for a scouting site.  Think we all saw this one coming.  Dont think Sparty, Penn State, and Wisconsin will be big fans of Ohio when the smoke clears.

Sevon has been digging OSU forever, and was taking visits there well before Meyer was hired.  I am sure Urban will get his recruits, but seeing someone like Pittman or Adolphus Washington committing to OSU is more a product of their success the last decade than it is anything Urban Meyer is doing.

 

Also - This is hardly a solid source, it's one lone tweet from some guy.

Not good. Not good at all. They now have Adolphus, Sevon, and Tommy Schutt, with Noah Spence visiting this weekend and its hit only official. Plus they have a solid freshman Dline class right now (Steve miller, Hale, Mike Bennett). I cant wait to see the trench battles in the years to come from our Oline and their Dline. Im not going to lie im worried about urban, hes a hell of a recruiter. And man if they get Spence.....

  I'm expecting Sparty to whine loudly about this, and somehow blame it on Michigan.

 

  I think I'm schadenfreude'n it up because Sparty just lost one of their top two recruits.  I'd rather it not be a +1 for Ohio, but hey ... I'm going to LOL SPARTY anyway.

Despite the Spartan bashing did we not all expect this even when Fickel was HC? Ohio has a super crop of DE's and OSU was going to grab at minimum two. Washington/Pittman were OSU superfans from the start. Although, I will say this gives OSU one hell of a DL haul now... bastards

  Noah Spence looks like he is going to take a single official visit.  And, unfortunately, that will be to Ohio.  Both Fickell AND Meyer will be in his house this Friday, possibly to watch his game.  I think, but I'm not certain, that Meyer is a big deal to Spence... I doubt Michigan has ever had a shot with him.  

 

  I'm hoping someone else knows something different...

  Tha'ts the only thing you are missing.  Ohio has a free pass, and until something changes (i.e. the NCAA drops the f'in hammer) they'll continue to flout openly the rules we play by.  Apparently, that's a level playing field.  Perhaps it remains level because we've got all the scholar athletes, and that gives us an unfair advantage.

they made the ruling because Urban hasn't exactly had a staff yet. So far all he has is an OC who I believe is still coaching Iowa State in their bowl game.

OSU's primary recruiters right now are Meyer, Fickell, and Drayton.

...while Michigan has a bigger class of stars to maintain,they couldn't even do that. I'm going to have to call my sparty friends to tell them the good news...LOL!
