MotSag Chat with Todd Sibley JR

osuHelmetIt is now never to early to start recruiting.  Just ask class of 2017 Archbishop Hoban, Ohio Running Back, Todd Sibley.  Standing 5-11 and weighing 200 pounds, he is already gaining interest from some of the powerhouses around the Midwest.  Some of the schools that have been in contact with him are Michigan State, Florida State. Michigan, Purdue, Cincinnati, and Ohio State.  Todd had nothing but good things to say about all of the programs recruiting him including Ohio State, the home state school.  I asked him that because he is from Ohio does that mean he favors the buckeyes or grew up rooting for them and he said, “Growing up, I actually was neutral to Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State.  I did not pick a favorite between them.”  That is interesting because all three of those schools are showing him the most interest in him and because he did not grow up a fan of any of the three in particular, he is open to all of them.

Todd visited Ohio State not too long ago with his buddy and current commit for the 2017 class Danny Clark from Massillon, Ohio.  Danny invited him to the Spring game and had nothing but good things to say about Ohio State visit.  “I love the environment at Ohio State.  Everything was just so well-organized and well put together.  I got to stand on the sidelines which was awesome because we got to see them warm up and I even shook Urban Meyer’s hand which was awesome!”  Danny has also been recruiting him to Ohio State with him, saying that they talk about how amazing it would be to be in the same huddle and to win National Championships together.  Sibley and Clark have a great relationship and Sibley says they talk about wearing the scarlet and gray together.

Todd also made a return trip to Ohio State this past weekend for the Columbus NFTC.  He was not overall happy with his performance.  He said that he started off kind of slow but really turned it up later in the camp.  He said that he just wants to improve his game and get better.  He wants to improve his vision on the field, including his peripheral vision, citing it caused miss opportunities on the field.  His footwork also needs improvement.  He is a very tough critic on himself, but said that his strengths are the love of the game and his ability to compete.  Monday through Thursday he works hard on preparation for Friday nights saying, “I am always well prepared for Friday nights.”

As for Todd Sibley off the field.  Do not expect him to be sitting down, ever.  He does track and loves to workout and exercise.  He also mentioned how he does not see himself getting a job sitting own because he just loves to be active.  I guess football would be a good job then for Todd.  If you watch Todd’s highlights he is a great prospect.  He will only get bigger, faster, and stronger.  He loves all of the schools that are recruiting him and is open to anything in his recruitment.  Having Danny Clark on your side, already recruiting him for the class, is not a bad thing to have.  I asked him what he would say to Buckeye Nation and he replied with, “I am going to work hard for that offer! Go Bucks!”  Todd Sibley JR is a prospect that every recruiting fan should watch, especially Ohio State fans.
