    Tunmise doesn’t really fit the personality profile of the guys Ohio State has brought in the last few classes. Not saying he’s a bad kid or anything, just not the same.

    It will be interesting to see how that recruitment progresses.

    What's wrong with his personality?

    If he doesn’t go to OSU, then everything.

    And we pulled his offer.

    I didn’t say anything was “wrong”, he just acts different on social media than the guys they’ve brought in the last few classes. He and Wilcoxson definitely don’t fit the mold, but it sounds like Ohio State recruiting both fairly hard.

    Weird on Wilcoxson. We could've already flipped him, but appears we decided against taking him.

    :pray: we get Grimes... and Johnson.

    There's not a more meh defensive back in the country than Isaiah Johnson. This year's Tyreke Johnson :twocents:

    Is Dohn not reliable? He said he was hurt last year and transferred schools. I like his size but I was hoping his Sr season would be better than his Jr year. Probably not going to find out now.

    Idk all I really know is that he's really interested in Ohio State but they don't think he's that good and haven't offered. I see he took a big dip in the latest rankings update as well.

    Nyland Green is the other DB we're after. So 2/3 of Grimes, Green and Johnson is cool with me.

    Had Grimes been able to make the 4-day visit to OSU that he had planned in the spring, I think we may have been able to make that one interesting.

    Oh well

    ND’s class is getting steamrolled by this virus, what once looked like a top ten lock now feels like it will struggle to finish in the top 25.

    ND never got any cruits on campus, the last two weekends were supposed to be the big JR days. These kids are all gonna stay regional now, it’s not clear who we would’ve landed. But it’s about 20 visitors who didn’t make it who have already been to Michigan/Penn State/ Clemson etc because they all held earlier JR days.

    the big names were def Tengwell and Shipley

    Nope. Barely been on the field.

    We just lost 5 of our top DBs from last year, so this is his make or break year.

    I don't think Michigan is expecting a commitment any time soon from Spindler or others, so no reason to give up there.

    So basically exactly what was predicted. He was a kid who was a beast as a soph but just never developed like expected and just rode the hype from his soph year

    His ranking seems pretty appropriate to me. It’s not like they have him as a top 100 kid.

    Wilcoxson.

    He’s a social media queen, but I don’t think his ranking is crazy as a fringe 250 guy.
