Mike Farrell in a recruiting update on rivals just recently laid bare what everybody already knew.
1. Shane Morris was vastly overrated and regardless of arm strength will need a lot of work to fulfill his potential.
2. He said that Jalin Marshall just missed out on a 5th star and he should be an absolute stud in college under Meyer.
Just figured I would pass this along. It was non-premium stuff so all can read it. I just wanted to call attention to it because most here have been screaming this for awhile.
The potential for "playmakers" in this class is unreal:
I cant' wait to see how this offense looks in the next few years.
You forgot one. JT Barrett.
Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
I just would like to paint this picture in two or three years: Barrett in the shotgun..'Zeke lined up next to him..Jalin in the slot/Wing..Baugh at TE..Wilson at SE...Pre-snap Jalin with the jet motion into the back field..snap...Barrett reads the defense and chooses to either hand off to Jalin moving through the back field on the jet for a sweep..or hold on to it and then hand it to 'Zeke..or rise and fire to Wilson or Baugh..or take the ball himself...yeah think about that speed and talent moving in unison..in front, a Warriner O-line...yeah its ok if it moved

A few nits.
Nobody would deem Darron Lee a "playmaker". He is future safty, lb or star.
You listed 5 players who are not committed.
Conley will start at DB.
I love Marshall his speed concerns have seem to have dissapited.
It will take time to learn the postion.
If we procure Clark & WIlson I would concur.

I think one could make a very convincing argument that Jalin is not only the superior prospect but is actually a better quarterback as well. SM looked absolutely pitiful from what I saw.
Dippy, you just made an assumption that he was referring to only offensive players. If a Db Makes interceptions is he then not termed a "playmaker"?
robochef i agree, you need playmakers on the defensive side as well as the offensive side. I want super fast and mean front seven that makes plays in the other teams backfield, I want DB's that run the routes better than the WR's. When the "D" controls the game, you have really got to screw up to lose the game. Meyer's offense will always be high quality, the defense is where I want the Alabama/LSU type players.
How long until this thread shows up on the Scum board?
I think Taco Charlton is a better prospect than both of them...(sarcasm).
I'm not one to come to dippy's defense but when I think of playmakers, I'm thinking QB, RB & WR. The chances that you will be able to make a play as a defensive player go down. There are a lot of candidates for players that can make plays on defense in this year's class. We got two LBs recently that will make some plays, Bosa will be a playmaker along the DL, I'd throw Apple and Burrows name in there with Lee and Conley. I could see Baugh being a playmake at TE. Truth is, Urban isn't going to bring someone in that can't be a difference maker at their position.
1. possible, as opposed to actual: the potential for recriuts to sign with OSU
2. capable of being or becoming: a potential playmaker in OSU's offense
Please note I used the word "potential" meaning that they COULD, eventually fit that role. And yes, I listed 5 players that aren't commited because they POTENTIALLY could be part of this class. From some of the observers of the state tourney games, I am sure they would disagree with you that Lee does not have the potential to be a "playmaker." I have no knowledge of this, I am only going by what I have heard second hand. Is he more than likely a defensive player? Yes.. but I am saying the potential is there.
I should have been more specific as the potential for "playmakers" in the 2012 class was very small. In any event the future is looking very bright.
Now you wonder how long it takes Meeechigan to realize that!! Hopefully they don't get a legit Top QB in the next couple of years! LOL
My question is.. did he actually write this about himself. " Rivals.com national analyst Mike Farrell is never shy to express his opinion on everything from commitments to rankings to how on-field performance affects recruiting. In this weekly feature -- Inside the Mind of Mike -- the most experienced analyst in the industry gives some of his thoughts on the events of the past week. "
Exactly...there are playmakers on both sides of the ball! Incase all-knowing,14yr old CEO Diddy didn't know, Lee is a vastly underrated prospect that earned his offer by keeping up with the big boys (and then some) during camp, like Vonn Bell. It's not out of the question to call him a playmaker.
THIS has the "POTENTIAL" to be the best post I've read in quite some time.
