2015 NLOID: Quick Reaction

Like most/many/some of you I followed the college signings quite closely. [OK, I was contractually obligated to do so, but that isn’t the point.] This is really the only day I follow this stuff; in terms of the actual recruiting and the verbal commitment processes, I leave that to others with more interest and capability. […]

Isaiah Prince Is A Buckeye!!!!

Offensive coordinator and line coach Ed Warriner got good news today, as a Maryland standout becomes the latest member of the 2015 recruiting class.

K.J. Hill Is A Buckeye!!!!

Getting a verbal commitment from one of the nation’s top receivers? Pretty nice.  Getting a verbal commitment from one of the nation’s top receivers who was expected to play for Bert Bielema? Freaking awesome. Particularly when that receiver has the skill set that K.J. Hill brings to the table as the latest member of the […]


Damon Arnette Is A Buckeye !!!

Ah, the crazy, flip flop world of college recruiting. Tonight, Ohio State added their 25th member of the 2015 Class, as Florida’s St. Thomas Aquinas’ Damon Arnette changed his verbal commitment from South Carolina to the Buckeyes. For those playing at home, STA is the home of Duron Carter, Joey Bosa and Buckeye Target Nick […]

They’re feeling blue in the Bluegrass state, as the Wildcats have lost a 2015 recruit to Ohio State this week. Pickerington Central’s DaVon Hamilton has become the 25th member of the upcoming recruiting class after a weekend visit that included the Ohio State Championship Celebration. He was obviously familiar with the Buckeye program, and visited […]

Mike Weber Is A Buckeye !!!!

Ohio State’s “pipeline” at Glenville is well known and documented. It seems, though, as if there’s a new one in development… to Cass Tech High School in Detroit Michigan. And today, that development brought in a future running back, four star athlete Mike Weber. He will join Damon Webb and Joshua Alabi in Columbus next summer, […]


Mirko Jurkovic Is A Buckeye!!!

Nebraska’s loss is Ohio State’s gain, as offensive lineman Mirko Jurkovic joins the 2015 Ohio State recruiting class. Jurkovic, who had been a Cornhusker verbal for quite some time, reopened his process this past Sunday. This followed both a trip to Columbus for The Game and the announcement that Bo Pelini had been let go […]

The 6’5″, 300 pound interior lineman was at the top of a lot of big lists, including LSU, Tennessee, Florida State, Alabama, Michigan State and Oklahoma. It was […]


Joshua Norwood Is A Buckeye !!!

Jim Tressel used to say that nothing good happens after eleven o’clock. The times, they are a changing, as Ohio State got good news late Tuesday night with the 20th member of the 2015 class verballing to the Buckeyes. Valdosta Georgia defensive back Joshua Norwood, a 5’10”, 175 pound cornerback becomes the latest Peach State […]


Torrance Gibson Is A Buckeye!!!!

Arguably the top athlete and one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks made it official today, and verballed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Torrance Gibson, a 6’4″, 200 pound senior from American Heritage high school in Fort Lauderdale is a four/five star athlete according to every recruiting service out there. He’s a high priority for the […]

Two in two days… not two shabby. Within 24 hours of receiving his offer, Loraine’s Rashad Berry pulled the trigger to become the 19th member of the 2015 recruiting class for Ohio State. Currently at 6’5″, 235 pounds, Berry is seen as somewhat of a project- “

What Could Have Been

Carlton Davis Is A Buckeye !?!

Recruiting today is a strange business. Long gone are the days where 30 prospects were offered, 28 were signed, and things were wrapped up well before National Letter of Intent Day. Now, offers go out like candy, and seem to be the currency that high school students use to determine who’s interested. Heck, we even […]

Josh Moore And Joshua Alabi Are Buckeyes!!!

Sorry to be a bit late on this… we wanted to let the other big news of the weekend stay at the top of our discussion. Ohio State’s Friday Night Lights camp and recruiting event concluded this weekend with at least three positives for fans of the Scarlet and Gray. On Saturday, top quarterback recruit […]

Daniel Giddens Is A Buckeye!!!

It’s Independence Day, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with some stars… of the recruiting variety.

[…]

Justin Hilliard and Jashon Cornell Are Buckeyes !!!!

It’s time for Buckeye Nation to smile with the commitments of 5 star LB Justin Hilliard and 4 star DE Jashon Cornell. These highly rated and recruited players are the latest addition to the class of 2015 and are looking forward to “terrorizing offenses” together.  The fact they have developed a strong relationship with each […]
