We only talk about recruiting editors that blog for this


Anyway, not a fan of Dunn holding off the EE.  I think this helps Ohio.   I see him going with his heart and sticking with OSU.

That reminded me how stupid Ohio state fans are. Unfortunately some of the responses to it in the comment section reminded how stupid commenters on are.

Come back TomVH, you don't deserve this. We can have two recruiting Ninjas considering how well this staff is recruiting.

not thread worthy but I'm curious, is Devin Gardner a redshirt freshman or a true sophomore this year? For some reason I thought last year was going to count as a redshirt.

Anyone know for certain?

But he'll apply for the medical redshirt (and it's been said he'll get it) so you can consider it him a RS.

However, if he comes out after next year or really won't matter so I believe the NCAA doesn't cross that bridge until you need the waiver.

If Deniv is good enough to "just go to the draft" I assume that Hoke and Borges will want him to stick around and probably start.  Devin has three years left if he gets the RS.  At most, he overlaps Shane by 2 years.  The first would be Shane's redshirt (won't it be nice to not play true freshmen QBs anymore).  The second could make for a Tebow / Leak situation (no similarities between them and Devin / Shane, just an example of a successful rotation), where Devin is the clear starter, but Shane is too good to ride the pine so Shane gets some meaningful snaps.  The trup upside of this is that when that season is over (2014), shane has 3 years left and has had two years to get bigger, stronger, more mechanical and just better and to adjust to the speed of the college game.  We could be stacked at QB for the next 6 years.
