I could handle the loss, but this is truly a dong punch.  Out of nowhere!  Was there any indication that he was considering an early commitment, let alone to OSU?

Not sure if true, but a few rumors on 247 and ESPN last week that Meyer might have also offered a position to one of the Cass Tech coaches so sounds like he is putting the full court press on that school if so.

My initial reactions was like is this a joke?  But I'm not upset.  He's a 2014 recruit.  There's plenty of time for him to choose the good side, but if not, oh well.  It's not like he's the only CB.  I'd rather have Parrker Westphal.

this is a 2014 kid. you think he won't want to take visits to Bama and LSU when they come calling? there's a long way to go until 2014 NSD. regardless, osu will get its guys no matter what happens. just like we'll get ours. we've had our pick of the litter from ohio for the last 2 years. dymonte thomas, kyle kalis, mike mccray just to name a few. i'm not worried about it.

Big loss at a position of need from a school with a history of sending their D1 kids to Michigan.

At the same time, it's for freaking 2014.  Other CBs will commit to us.

alot of kids in detroit doesn't like michigan. they are osu fans so hoke really will have to recruit the up and comings kids hard to try and flip them from ohio state and the sec schools.  We have to remember michigan was not any good from 2007- 2010.  Thats when florida and ohio state were the  hot things.

Fuck man. This up-coming season is so important for recruiting. Let's face it as much as I fucking hate urban myer the guy is a proven commodity. A good year next year will help... But that is a big IF. Have to beat OLIO next year. Absolutely fucking must win given its at home.

Crazy if he goes to OSU....he is a Michigan boy w all his Cass boys and he turns his back on them after winning 2 state titles w them. This is why Dawson was pissed. I wonder uh he and Jayru etc w buck the trend and bounce on there boys. I'm really bummed by this if this happens. Really liked Webb alot.

I'm sure the basketball game is contributing to this, but no need to be so butthurt. Urban is a great recruiter, and maybe some kids just want to make their own legacy at other school. Yes, it still stings that he would choose them over us, but we will get ours and they will get theirs. Simple as that.

Probably just wants to make his own way.  It was just a matter of time before one of the Cass kids pulled a Brady Hoke on the home town team.  Hopefully we will take it on the chin better than the Ohio fans do when we pull talent out of their area.  I love the focus on the Midwest but we need some other area to recruit, too.

One has to wonder if Webb will be able to play as anything more than a nickel corner given that Cam Burrows and Eli Apple are coming in next year. I wish him well, but not when we meet in the game.

Bray Hoke was a Michigan fan growing up because all of his friends were Buckeye fans.  Safe to say that Webb is a Buckeye fan because his teammates are Michigan fans or Michigan committs.   Just wanting to stand out, it's not the end of the world.

Level here tonight is equal to an average night at mlive. Big fricken deal, a 2104 recruit declared to Ohio, who gives a shit, I'm pretty sure we'll sign a few kids. It's amazing that kids between the ages of 17-21 hold so much control over a typical day for seemingly grown adults.

It's not a big deal.  You guys jumped out to a big recuiting lead for the 2013 class and tOSU didn't pass you in the ESPN, Rivals, 247 rankings until the past month.  There is plently of time for you to catch us for the 2014 class.

Tough day to be blue...

GO BUCKS and welcome to BUCKEYENATION Damon Webb!!!
