What the hell??
I wonder if this means they are getting diggs
Interesting....you'd think if tweeting such news he would claim a source or reference.
Would this be because of Coach Meyer's accidental use of his name earlier today?
He basically said this morning that Neal was a lock for the Buckeyes. Urban said that they are still recruiting to fill one more slot. So either this info is bogus or the Buckeyes have a very very good idea that they will get Diggs.
Listening to Urban's Presser this afternoon one would have to think he is pretty confident in getting Diggs to put off Neal at this time. He said we still have one schollie and we need to fill a "game breaker" role to spread the field out horizontally. I would think if he was not sure of Diggs he would have gone ahead and taken Neal.
The tweet does NOT say "we are no longer talking Neal". It says were not even TAKING him. I wonder what happened....? Is DIGGS a silent commit?
If he can't provide a story, claim a source or at least give more detail than that, I'll just ignore this one until more details emerge.
That said, hopefully this at least lends credence to yesterday's reports (rumor / inside info ?) that Diggs is an OSU lock.
what in the world! what a position to be in if true! just hope this gamble works...
So when is Diggs announcing again?
Never thought we'd see the day where WE had to turn down 5* athletes!
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
I corrected the OP. I'm guessing my mind saw "talking" because "taking" simply did not compute.
If true, I don't like the move. We really need two play makers in this class that are game breakers.
Cleveland Orchestra Baby!! World's greatest!! The Brown's wet dream is to be them. The Ohio State University-Where the Illibuck Lives!

It's possible that we are getting Diggs. It is also possible that they've asked Neal to not sign now but see if there is additional attrition and announce later. I have a hard time believing Meyer wouldn't want them both. FWIW, I was reading a signing day chat on that evil network and there west coast person (I forget his name) said he was sitting across from Neal and the rumors were not true.
