Please keep all discussion and updates here. Game starts at 1 p.m. (ET) on NBC. Mike Mitchell and James Quick will announce their intentions. I'm predicting the Buckeyes will go 1-for-2 on that front (landing Mitchell, missing out on Quick).
OSU verbal commits in the game: Eli Apple, Ezekiel Elliott, Evan Lisle and Johnny Townsend (Michael Hill is also on the team but won't play due to a finger injury). Shelton Gibson is expected to pick OSU and he's also in this game. You can also get a look at future Mich S Dymonte Thomas and RB Derrick Green who will likely end up at UM (and who grew up a big OSU/Eddie George fan ... and is close friends/former HS teammates with Curtis Grant of course).
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Here are your complete rosters for both teams:
Got my Scotch ready for a couple of celebratory toasts today!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Eli Apple(DB) is #9 for the Black team.
Ezekiel Elliot(HB) is #24 for the Yellow team.
Shelton Gibson(WR) is #3 for the Black team.
Evan Lisle(OL) is #69 for the Black team.
Mike Mitchell(LB) is #44 for the Yellow team.
James Quick(WR) is #17 for the Black team.
Tony Stevens(WR) is #80 for the Black team.
Johnny Townshend(PK) is #35 for the Black team.
Keep your eye on Tyrone Swoopes(QB, Jersey #1) for the Yellow team. We passed him up for J.T. Barrett. It'll be interesting to see how he performs.
Good stuff. Much appreciated
Now If someone would update the basketball schedule. JBook can you hook that up?
I think it would be more accurate to say that Texas passed up on J.T. Barrett in favor of Swoopes. We offered both but they are both Texas kids who look to Texas first. Texas liked Swoopes better so J.T. looked to us.
Swoopes has struggled at most every event he has attended from what I've seen, so it will be interesting to see how he does.

not sure about the 1:00pm start time(ET)......Directv is showing a 2:00pm (ET) start. FYSA
Have you tried Glenfarclas 21?
Dave, do you have any insights as to the amount of school work Gibson needs to complete before pledging to Meyer? Is it a GPA issue that could take some considerable more time or perhaps a test score that is a required for admittance. In essence, how far off or hopefully realistic is it that he'll get it done in time? If he's behind in courses completed, this one's over folks; he headed to FUMA.
You can get schedule at espn.com or ohiostatebuckeyes
Games starts at 1 pm eastern time....
