ESPN300 wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has committed to Michigan
(he stayed home) Boy does he pass the eye test though.

OSU's recruiting class is stacked .......so I'm more than content with what we have; can't get them all.

It looks like 4 star safety Bubba Bolden is going to commit to OSU (per twitter). He was considered a USC lean, but is on the Gorman team that already has 3 OSU commits. We'll find out for sure on Saturday, along with Jeff Okudah and Darnay Holmes.

Actually not sold on Bolden. Sounds like his mom is trying to mess with both fan bases.

General school of thought is OSU is leading for Okudah, Holmes and top JUCO CB Sheffield, while Bolden is to USC. They'll get at least 2/4, possibly 3/4. This DB class is mind boggling.

Sounds like Holmes will stay in California, driven mostly by family member input.

Holmes to UCLA Bolden to USC. Chase Young looks to be one of the best guys playing.

Okudah does commit to OSU. Between he and Shaun Wade there is some future NFL talent coming to the secondary.

DT Marvin Wilson has been spotted in a number of pictures with Jeff Okudah and Baron Browning... getting him would be huge.

Okudah and Browning both recruiting Wilson heavily. He joked that he's gonna go back to his hotel room, lock the door, and they'll probably come banging on it. Might have to hire security.

I sure hope Wilson picks the Bucks. I wonder what other players are going to be let go to get to 85. Trout and Lisle already got pushed out the door and I doubt Collier will be able to stay either since he would be in grad school and has no chance of playing QB with 1 yr of eligbiltty left.

Doubt Wilson comes to OSU. Those big southern DTs don't leave the south.

Bummed about Holmes. Said earlier in the week he was was a silent commit to USC and earlier in the process he was a silent to OSU. Damn.

Yeah I'd be surprised if we land Wilson but he's definitely the biggest need left in the class IMO.

A lot of praise for the OSU commits at this weekend's Army game.

I didn't watch but I heard Chase Young was one of the better players. That Dline will be very, very good for the next few years.

Kendall Sheffied, 4 star JUCO CB has committed. Former 5 star CB.. OSU back in the #1 ranking spot for the time being.

Tyjon Lindsay a 4 star slot receiver decommits. Pretty big surprise here, seemed he'd be a perfect fit for the H Back role.

Wow. That is shocking. Probably why EGW switched over to offense, but still. Did not expect that.

WTF? He and Grimes made that cool video and everything. His tweets were very curious. As late as yesterday he was tweeting pro Buckeye things. Do you think Glover-Williams and White switching to #Zone 6 had an impact? I'll say this, he already had injury trouble and he's a smallish guy maybe this is good for both sides.

Definitely not good for OSU. I'm tired of seeing attempted converts at HB and WR. Lindsey would have killed it at HB for OSU.

I hate to say it but the last part of your post did cross my mind. Well see.

They said the same about Dontre Wilson. Not every guy pans out.

Wilson was a running back. Lindsey has played the slot since his freshman year.

Something does seem odd about that. He's talking with Nebraska, instead of coming to Ohio State? Doesn't make sense.

Reports are that OSU will be going to Vegas to talk with him tomorrow.

Surprising, especially since two OSU playmakers just declared early for the draft and we're clearly in need of a slot guy. Maybe the shutout really got to him

Lindsey confirmed via video he will be going elsewhere.

Read it was a combo of a deteriorating relationship with Tate Martell and concerns about the direction OSU's offense was moving. Noticed most of the WRs they've targeted lately are 6'2"+
