Even though there is definitely an outright bias from the Rivals ranking system, I think we have a legitimate shot at alot of the players we have already offered on this list. If not more. What do you guys think?

There have been a few posts about this article today. I believe the staff moved this to the 2014 recruitment tracker, pinned on the FR.
Thanks for the heads up..
This thread is on "lock" watch..
By all means remove it. Didnt realize this was already posted. Sorry about that.
No need to apologize man, it lead to a huge thread earlier today on what should be locked and what shouldn't. I was just joking and piggy-backing off of that.
No problem man, just lookin out for ya. The link was a good find. I just replied to tell you why nobody was posting in this thread.
Have you seen Duane he's a to be here soon!!!!!

Wow, what a list of targets. If Urban can land even a fraction of these targets it will be a hell of a class. Let me know where I messed up in the list!
Edit: Updated with some that I missed on my first pass."
Wow Deshaun Watson is a 3 stars recruit in Scout (#13 QB) and the #11 player overall, 5 star recruit in Rivals. Sounds like Urban has a Rivals subscription.
With Urban at the helm, and his outstanding crew, I really feel as if almost any player on that list can be a Buckeye next February.
Only the best ones that urban wants the most. All the second true kids can go to tsun.
I see 9 very possible commits.
Tired of people (scUM fans in particular) claiming Urban recruits based on rankings.
Look no further than Paris Campbell
Yup. 2013 has ample proof
Darron Lee, Chris Worley, Tracy Sprinkle, Michael Hill, James Clark, Billy Price, Tyquan Lewis, and EzE plus Thompson (at the time they committed) would all disprove that last year.
Meanwhile he ignores Charlton, says no thanks to Green, and closes the door early on Robert Foster even when he wants to 'try again' with OSU.
The best part is that the UM guys are always ripping on Tracy Sprinkle because he's a low-rated guy, but then they look at all their low-rated guys diamonds in the rough. They claim that Urban can't evaluate talent, when their coach has done nothing to suggest that he is superior in that department.
