Recruiting Update: NLOID

Aundrey Walker Joe: Michigan State?  Nope… USC?  Nope… FSU?  Nope…  in articles he may lead us to believe he is looking around, but he is all Buckeye! Jim: 100% Buckeye. He will announce on national letter of intent day on Fox Sports. ___________________________ We have more thoughts on the rest of the recruits after the […]

Breaking: Sam Longo to transfer

According to Doug Lesmerises of the Plain Dealer, second year offensive lineman Sam Longo has asked for and been granted a release from Ohio State. Longo redshirted in 2009 and never really made a splash in 2010 in extremely limited action. With so many incoming offensive lineman in the 2011 class, he may have seen […]

Breaking: Vaughters re-confirms commitment to Stanford

Georgia linebacker James Vaughters has re-confirmed his commitment to Stanford($) after briefly re-opening his recruitment when Harbaugh left for the NFL. Vaughters to Ohio State was always a long shot, but a scheduled official to Columbus left a glimmer of hope for the Buckeyes. Now that visit is cancelled following his re-commitment and the glimmer […]

2011 Recruiting…What's Next?

With Ejuan Price now in the 2011 class, tBBC takes a look at what is on the horizon for the 2011 class. Price takes Ohio State’s count to 21 recruits. At this point, no one is sure how much room is truly left in the class (transfers could bump the number up), but we do know […]

2011 High School All-Star Games Recap

As promised here is a combined recap of the 3 High school all-star games that we previewed.  Lots and lots to talk about. Offense / Defense All-American Bowl In the game that showcased a high number of Buckeye commits our guys really showed out.  Chase Farris was named the defensive MVP for his play on […]

Recruiting Update: 2011 Finale

With the recent commitment of Doran Grant, the 2011 recruiting class is close to being finished… two or three additional players close. It is safe to assume that Aundrey Walker will be one of those players. Yes,  it appears that Walker has safely navigated through the treacherous Glenville academic waters and will do the usual […]

Recruiting Update: Big Weekend for the Buckeyes

If you follow Ohio State recruiting even a little bit, I am sure you are aware that several high profile recruits were making official visits to Columbus this past weekend. Virginia linebacker Curtis Grant, Pennsylvania linebacker Ejuan Price, California JUCO defensive back Byron Moore, Ohio defensive back Doran Grant, Maryland athlete Darius Jennings, and Georgia […]

Recruiting Update: Glenville Academic Woes

Unfortunately, as the title indicates, this update is full of more apparent bad news on the Glenville recruiting front. Last week, I mentioned that Ohio State’s interest in Akise Teague is likely due to uncertainty about Shane Wynn‘s status with the Buckeyes. I also speculated that the recent offer to JUCO defensive line prospect Tank […]

Quick update on 2011 recruiting, new offers

I just wanted to post a real quick recruiting update for the 2011 class before getting back to our regularly scheduled tsun week activities. First, arguably the top Junior College defensive lineman in the country, Cornelius “Tank” Carradine, is a late entry into the field of potential members of the 2011 class. Carradine was initially […]

Recruiting Update: 9/21/10

Joe also contributed to this post. With the excitement of fall camp and the start of the season, recruiting has been on the back burner for weeks. Since my last update, Ohio State received the commitment of local Columbus running back Warren Ball and Cleveland offensive lineman Kyle Kalis, the second and third commitments in the […]

Recruiting Update: August 3rd

Trey DePriest is going to Alabama. Anyone that followed the recruitment probably isn’t surprised by the result. Despite some late optimism from Ohio State’s corner, DePriest just didn’t seem to have his heart in Ohio. Jim Tressel has a certain recruiting style. Whether we like it or not and for  good or bad, he isn’t […]

Recruiting Update: Wrapping up the '11 Class

It’s time for a quick look at the rest of the 2011 class. Things have been relatively quiet since the Tanner commitment. That was until recently when Shane Wynn dropped a mini-bomb by announcing that he and Cardale Jones would like to go to the same school together. While this certainly is an interesting turn […]

Ronald Tanner is a Buckeye! And other recruiting thoughts…

Capping off an eventful week of recruiting for the Buckeyes, Columbus Eastmoor safety Ronald Tanner has chosen Ohio State as his college destination. Tanner’s commitment to the Buckeyes is not exactly a surprise, but it is still nice to make it official. He chose Ohio State over the likes of Northwestern, Stanford, Yale, Vanderbilt and […]

Recruiting Update: Is it too early to look at 2012?

Update: Josh Perry verbally committed to Ohio State today, becoming the first commit in the class of 2012. Welcome to Buckeye Nation Mr. Perry! When you are on a recruiting roll like Ohio State is, it is never too early to look ahead. But first a quick look at the 2011 class. Rumors are swirling […]

Recruiting Update: Joel Hale is a Buckeye!

Alternative title for this update: Christmas in June or The Homestretch. With the commitment of legacy WR Evan Spencer on Saturday, the class of 2011 has grown to 13 players. That means that the magic number for the rest of the class is 9 (or so I have read). What happens with the last 9 […]

Recruiting Update: Braxton Miller is a Buckeye!

First things first, a big congratulations to Mr. Miller on an excellent college choice. If he keeps his head on straight, he has the tools to be the next great QB at The Ohio State University. Exciting stuff. For evaluation and video of what he brings to the table, check out our coverage from earlier […]

Recruiting Update: 5/4/10

There hasn’t been much action on the recruiting front over the past week, so I am going to list the players I think are the most likely to become a part of this, most likely at the top, least likely at the bottom. Pretty simple, I know, but it’s better than nothing for the week.
