The Rich get Richer

Recruiting is not our shtick around here, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be found watching high school highlight films of future and former recruits on YouTube on a given Wednesday afternoon. We have what you might call a vested interest. We also know just enough to be dangerous but not enough to look like we knew what we’re talking about.

But anyway, recruiting. After OSU missed out on, among other recruits, Seantrel Henderson (not an Ohio boy) and Jordan Hicks (an Ohio Boy), Tressel’s recruiting prowess and stranglehold on the state was being questioned. Was he slipping? What did USC or Texas have that Ohio State didn’t (besides beautiful weather and pretty girls)? Was this a sign of things to come?

Well, that trend looks to be reversing itself. Ohio State has been adding commitments at a solid pace this year for 2011 and it looks as though Tressel will be adding the gem of the class, Braxton Miller (h/t to Josh at the OSJ). Braxton will be announcing his collegiate destination tomorrow and all signs point to OSU over Florida and Urban Meyer.

Boom. Roasted.


  1. Did somebody bet Urban Meyer that he couldn’t pat his head and rub his tummy at the same time????

  2. Recruiting isn’t my cup of tea, but when you watch the kid play on YouTube, he’s sick. Hopefully Pryor returns for a senior year, so Miller has a chance to sit under a veteran Pryor (man it sounds weird saying that..) and we can work a good offense for him. I’d like to see some good OL though.

  3. Braxton is a Buckeye WOOHOO

  4. Yeah, Jeff, that’s what I was thinking. Problem is, this is just a snapshot, I can’t actually tell if both hands are moving at the same time.

    At first, I thought he was confused about showing respect during national anthem; snap off a crisp salute, place hand on heart (the other hand, Urban)and couldn’t quite get it together.
