I'm curious to hear what people like vs dislike.  I've only ever created 2 threads I think, so I'm curious what content people think is good vs bad.  Plus, I already got negged just for asking you and you didn't get negged for replying to me, so I may be in more danger than you & I don't care so...

ESPN is really low on OSU's commits so far.  It's crazy how Berger, for instance, is the #2 OLB to Scout, but the #26 OLB to ESPN.  What did Meyer do to them before he left?

Does anyone see Webb as a future transfer opportunity?  It seems to me like he will be burried on the depth chart until his senior year.  Does anyone see him beating out Apple/Conley/Burrows?  If he gets burried and frustrated, why not come back home?  Granted if we somehow land both Westphal and Peppers we not have room either, but can we be that lucky?

In your hypothetical he's not good enough to make the field for Ohio, is Michigan's defensive backfield so bad that we want guys that can't crack their two-deep? I would argue it is not. 

Plus Webb is really good. He'll compete with and be right in the starting mix with all their talented DBs.

Even if he does transfer, what makes you think he will transfer to Michigan?  Osu to Michigan or Michigan to Osu transfers are rare to begin with.  The last one I can think of is Justin Boren and that came during the coaching change.

In most cases coaches might restrict the schools that a player can transfer to.

Well, he's younger so he is a year behind them, Apple and Conley are quite highly ranked, even higher than Webb, and Burrows is just a few spots behind him the ESPN 150, and they are all a little taller and bigger (minus Conley who is only taller), which is sort of why I was surprised he wanted to go there in the first place.

If they're all that talented, they'll find a way to get them all on the field.  Any one of those guys could play safety if need be.  And if they're all so good that Webb can't get on the field, my guess is one or more leave a year early for the NFL, leaving Webb two years to start.

Maybe I am way off base.  Apparently Webb's mother has created a website to help OSU recruit after he saw how well Morris used social media to recruit last year.  Have a look...

It may not have been a good idea to allow comments.  How long do you think this goes before it gets mobbed by angry Michigan fans?

Maybe someone can correct me on this, but it seems to me that Harris is ranked a bit low as compared to other sites/analysts. However, this is yet another awesome start for Hoke and Co. I was especially excited about Speight since there was some intial questioning about his worthiness around these parts.

Knowing how rankings go unless Cole hits the circuit hard he will fall of the 150 list after a few updates.  We had several players last year that were at one point on the 150 list that did not end up there at the end.

i think we will see a lot of movement with our commits.i dont think Cole and Ferns plan on doing the camp scene so they will drop some. i think Harris and Wilton will start moving up the board because thise 2 will be on the camp scene.
