2018 Recruitng Thread

Postby Shane » Tue Aug 15, 2017 3:59 pm

Nothing new to report, but starting a thread so that any additions can be shown here. It's probably going to be a quiet few months given that only 2 or 3 spots are still available.

Micah Parson tweeted his opinion on the OSU QB situation while at OSU this weekend. Hmm, can we make something of that snippet from the Patriot?

I'm not clear on what he tweeted but he doesn't seem Barkley-esque?

I'd be shocked if he ended up at PSU. He's in love tOSU (and himself). We need to close either him or Jayson Oweh. Losing both to the bucks would be very frustrating

Eh, I remember losing a top PA QB (TP) to the Bucknuts, he didn't turn out to be the next coming and he was an individual not a team builder. 5 star recruits with team building skills are as rare as girls with personality AND looks. Predicting a good end/linebacker is easier than QB so he will probably be a success but if he is so arrogant as to give opinions on who the QB should be as a recruit somebody will have their hands full. I guess once they sign you do an attitude adjustment ;)

Dorian Hardy, 4* DE from Paramus Catholic no longer a commit.

Don't know if he decommitted or if we pulled his scholarship. He was suspended for fighting in school and apparently got into a fight with a coach. Obviously, both sides have different stories.

He is now transferring high schools. His dad is pissed.

Not sure what to make of any of this. From purely a football perspective, a meaningful loss. He is a very good player. We are in the mix for some other top DEs this cycle (Parsons, Oweh, Smith) so hopefully we can close on one or two of them.

Hope we did right by him. Paramus Catholic is a big-time feeder school. Would like to think we did the right thing rather than siding with a coach we know can help us down the line.

Sounds like the PSU coaches pulled his 'ship. Hardy would be an idiot to decommit at this stage, since 1) he's not a desirable prospect right now because of this fight and 2) his senior film, YTD, was less than impressive.
