QB Danny Clark De-commits from Ohio State Class


Quarterback Danny Clark has separated from the Buckeyes recruiting class just as analysts suspected. They had a feeling when Tate Martell committed to Ohio State that something like that was going to happen. Their presumption manifested this week.

Clark posted a comment on his Twitter page that explained that he was de-committing from his promise to Ohio State University. He announced that he would be opening his recruitment for the first time in a long while.

The analysts never felt that Clark had the skill set that was necessary to be a quarterback. The fact that he had previously led his team to the state championship had no bearing on his overall suitability so they felt.

Matta Gets Some Verbal Basketball Commitments


Have you ever seen that gorgeous Thad Matta smile where his grin spreads across his face, and his eyes light up the entire room? Think and try to remember.

He smiled like that when Illinois lost to Ohio State in 2005. He smiled like that in 2007 when Mike Conely, Jr. and Greg Ogden were chopping away at the Net. He smiled like that in 2010 when that awesome Evan Turner shot hit the net and beat Michigan. You saw in the pre-Final Four of 2012 too when the Buckeyes smashed Syracuse. He smile like that in 2013 when that last-minute shot by Aaron Craft came in and beat Iowa State for the tournament.

Michigan 'Hard Commit' Leonard Taylor To Visit Ohio State

Leonard Taylor

A Michigan Commit Visits Ohio State

The pre-season practice schedule is underway for Ohio State football. The team is experiencing victories even while preparing for their season. Their coaching staff has been pulling double-duty trying to be victorious in recruiting as well. This is a college coach's busiest time of the year but no staff does it better than the Ohio State coaches.

Leonard Taylor to Visit OSU

Michigan commit and elite 2018 prospect 'Leonard Taylor' from Springfield, Ohio has made it perfectly clear that he'll be making multiple visits this fall to Ohio State. He unexpectedly committed himself to the Wolverines last spring but never let his interest in the Buckeyes die. He stands 6ft. 6in. and weighs around 260lbs.

Taylor is definitely a big physical specimen with the ability to play tight end or on the defensive line in college ball. He's an Ohio native and surely one of the best prospects in his class. Once his senior year comes around those Ohio State coaches are going to be working like mules to flip him.

Ohio State’s Urban Meyer Lobbies For Change

Urban Meyer

An underclassmen combine is endorsed by Urban Meyer for draft prospects

As far as football goes, Meyer always seems to be one step ahead of everyone else. On Wednesday, he mentioned that he is working with coaches and the US Football Coach Association on permitting potential early entrants to NFL drafts in future, to audition for executives and scouts earlier without disqualifying themselves for selection. This appears to reflect what has been done in the sport of college basketball, by permitting players to enroll for the draft, then test their skills without being penalized. Meyer championing this motion is appropriate, particularly given that Ohio State had nine players sacrifice their eligibility to enroll for the NFL Draft just past.

Brian Snead is his recent OSU pick-up for a running back, and he is the 17th best player in Florida and a four-star running back. He is ranked in 80th place in the overall 2018 class according to several rating services. The Buckeyes are going to be fierce next year for sure and for a number of years to come.

Todd Sibley Leaves Ohio State And Commits To Pitt Panthers

Todd Sibley

Ohio high school star Todd Sibley this week used his twitter account to officially announce he has de-committed from the Ohio State program.

Just one year after leading his Ohio team to a state championship, he has chosen to join the Pittsburgh based Pitt Panthers for 2017.

His prep career has seen him already rush over 3,000 yards, adding to his junior high school tally of over 2,000 yards. He first came to major attention after a champion's performance at the Friday Night Lights camp last year.

It's no surprise that Sibley has committed to Pittsburgh. After all, it was only April that the Ohio State coaching team informed him that he was likely to have to gray-shirt - at least for the first semester. This after being a fully committed player the previous year.

2017 Ohio State Commit Brendon White Offers Tremendous Versatility

Brendon White

2017 Ohio State Commit Brendon White always wanted to play football for the Buckeyes. The school is literally in his blood, as his father, William White, played defensive back for the team. The only thing that is up in the air is where he will play.

Most high school recruits are lucky if they can handle one position in the college game, but White is such an amazing athlete that he can play a bunch. The early word is that White will play either wide receiver or outside linebacker at Ohio State. White prefers the former, but would have no problem shifting to the latter for more playing time. Buckeyes decision makers will not get a lot of information out of his final season at Olentangy Liberty High School, as he plays quarterback for that team. As of now, he is not slated for any defensive duties for the Patriots, though this could change in the future. 247Sports also lists White as the 13th ranked safety, indicating that he could probably play any position ably.

Antjuan Simmons Commits To The Ohio State Buckeyes

Antjuan Simmons

Antjuan Simmons plans to become an Ohio State Buckeye. His high school is located in close proximity to the Michigan Stadium, which is in Ann Arbor. Regardless of that fact, this talented 3-star linebacker made the decision to play football as a Buckeye. It appears that he is not concerned about the fact that Ohio is further away. He also did not appear to be swayed by the fact that his current high school is the same one that Michigan's football coach attended.

Antjuan Simmons used his Twitter account to announce his Ohio State University decision. In his tweet, he thanked the other schools making him offers, but announced that Ohio State University was his choice. (Ad: H&R Block Tax Filing Discounts at
