After a recent visit to Clemson, is the Buckeyes lead for Raekwon McMillan changing?
I still feel good about McMillan. Even after a great visit, OSU is still in the lead. I think that will solidify when he visits in April.
That said, I think it will be a long time before he commits, and there will be tons of rumors about his 'leader' changing. I think Urban wins out in the end, but it's not going to be easy.
If you get a visit and don't lead then it is not a favorable forecast, sorry Clemson.
His parents will see tOSU for the 1st time over the summer right around his timeline to decide.
An earlier decision is great news! If he were to join this class before the season then I think the chances of landing the other GA prospects and guys like Garrett would increase drastically!

Agreed. Clemson got the parents, rolled out the red carpet but....'closing the gap' is not the same as 'becoming the leader'. Like I said elsewhere, that many visits here on his own dime means Buckeye imo.
OT, i was wondering how the heck these family's afford all these unofficial visits, then it hit me, they won't have any college expenses. My ah ha moment for the day
His parents have never been on campus and getting them on campus is huge. His parents will play apart in his decision.
Coyoungin on twitter. Circular square movement.
Thanks for posting Bill K
Have to love that he said he would decide in the summer and start recruiting for his school. He also said "My parents are going to go there with me during the summer for the first time. They haven't been there yet. When they see Ohio State, it's going to be great."
I still think OSU is the team to beat right now. Also have to like that he is coming up with Autrey in April. Autrey is another GA recruit who has OSU as his leader. Need to show them a great visit in April and solidify those leads.
He is coming in April and then bringing his parents back this summer and states that he will know where he is going by Summers end so he can start recruiting for that school, this looks goof for tOSU. He loves Urban Meyer and when he goes back in April he will remember why. Then, his parents will come in the Summer and meet Urban and Withers etc. and hopefully he will commit then. The campus is great, especially in the Summer and when he is standing in the Shoe thinking about 100,000+ fans screaming, he will be overwhelmed! He went to Clemson and had a wonderful visit with his whole family, but still names tOSU the leader and gets a huge smile on his face when asked why he likes tOSU. We have the best recruiting staff in the country and I have no doubt that if he visits twice in the next 6 months that UFM et al. will lock him up! If we can get Blanding and Kwon to commit by Summers end, the momentum will be insane.
Kwon= mike Mitchell. Somebody who wants to he a buckeye, will take visits, will make it look like its a battle and then will commit when it's all said and done.
Him talking like this gives him the excuse to not early verbal.
1 His family has not seen tOSU. Big time game change. And their memory will be fresh when he announces in the summer.
2 He has niether of his home state schools in his top 3 or 4, so no loyalty tugging from them. (see Bell, Tenn)
3 He wants to play with Booker and Garrett. Booker is as close to an OSU lock as there can be.
Thinking along the same lines with everyone and am glad he is committing earlier so again, you know where Ypu stand.
I also liked the comment comparing Saban and Meyer then he says about Urban.."and he cares about you off the field too!". He probably didnt mean that as a shot, BUT I loved it!
His parents are not coming with him for the April visit
Misread that, thanks. The summer parental visit will be great especially if OSU still leads or co-leads and his parents are sold.
Urban can put them in contact with Vonn Bell's family about choosing OSU over the regional favorites!
Of course he is going to have a good visit. Clemson is going to roll out the red carpet for the kid. The parents are going to be treated like royalty. Bottom line is their coach is not Urban Meyer, Clemson is not Ohio State, and they are not loading up for a national title.
He is coming here with his parents. The shine of the Clemson visit will wear off soon and the cold hard reality of things will set it. Its a long year. Urban Meyer is Urban Meyer.
"The only thing That Team Up North will be tasting this year is the salty tears of defeat" - UFM
If we're his last visit (especially with his parents) this summer it's a done deal. Nobody leaves tOSU unimpressed.
