This sounds like a convenient excuse to use when they most likely stopped recruiting him because he questioned who the starting QB should be on Twitter.

I don't think that's what's happening. Jackson Carman is still being recruited and he ran his mouth too.

To give credit where credit is due, Meyer is the best recruiter in the country. Yes, better than Saban. He signs multiple 5 stars every year. Getting or not getting Parsons is hardly a watershed moment for him so doubt he feels the need to make excuses or justify his recruiting decisions. Think they just screwed up, which is just fine by me :)

I heard years ago, prior to our 2nd dark ages of the 2000's, that OSU over reported minor violations to appear judicious and hope to avoid the major ones coming home to roost. They also are reported to have hired many former NCAA enforcement employees who know the rules and know the players within the NCAA making a nice arrangement, cozy, comfortable for irvin meier to work his magic and if trouble is brewing the good ole boys network goes to work. I do not have any sources to cite just small talk over the years concerning OSU recruiting and NCAA issues.

I agree that their recruiting is remarkable and wonder just how its done other than having excellent recruiters who comb the nation for the top talent and sell Columbus and the NFL. We are gaining but have a ways to go to reach their lofty status in recruiting. We have show we can coach up lesser apparent talent and possible identify future stars who haven't blossomed as early as many OSU recruits.

There must be some extraordinary reason that a place like OSU attracts (this year) 11 of the top 100 rated recruits. And really doesn't give a R'sA about losing Micah Parsons. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if he picks them tomorrow, even not being recruited. That operation has stunk to high heaven ever since the Maurice Clarett and Tyrell Pryor days...I will always suspect that the NCAA keeps a respectful distance from Columbus not wanting to tip over the immense cash cow and media darling that is OSU football.

The LOI's are rolling in as expected - a very good thing. Btw, if you haven't watched a few minutes of Ricky Slade's highlights video - check it out. It's like watching Saquon Jr. His acceleration is ridiculous.

Micah Parsons is announcing at 9:30 and Jahan Dotson at 12:30. Dotson is currently committed to UCLA but most believe he is selecting PSU today. Also, rumors that Soloman Enis may be announcing now today as well. As currently as yesterday, he wasn't announcing until February.

I read that everybody but Butts will sign today, and he is delayed due to academic reasons. If true, this would be pretty darn impressive given all the recent coaching churn at PSU
