1QB - Watson or Crest
****If braxton leaves for the NFL we take 2QBs = Could win NC and heisman throw for a bunch of yards, impress,etc
Watson (Dual) + Second tier Pro QB or Crest (Pro) + Second tier dual or Pro depending on what the staff projects crest as
2RB - Parris Campbell(ATH) Jalen Hurd (RB)
3WR (depending on numbers could be only 2WR)
-Mark Andrews* (6-6 225 2012: 81 rec 1590 yards 22TDs) or Derek Keif
-Drake Harris (He will be on campus this weekend so we shall see how he feels after the visit)
-Demarre Kitt (if we get watson, Kitt is on board. if no watson kitt follows him to clemson)..... then i think Derek Keif and Mark Andre may both get in
1 ATH/APB - Miles Autry
TE- Jeb jeb blazevich (6.4 230)
****what would be interesting if we could convince Mark Andrews to play TE with his size/speed/hands and take the other three guys as WR not sure how interested he would be, I asked the staff about him in another thread and i feel that this could be a good option lets see how things develop.
- Jamarco Jones (changed from Orlando Brown)-100% correct I like are chances better (edited 2/23-645pm) good point Ficek999 how could i forget about the top 100 prospect we have been all over point taken haha.
-1 of the 2 JUCO guys (Chad Mavety or Jermaine Eluemunor)
2DL - Most up in the air for me right now with our last two DL classes being monsters....... i could see us just taking 2 elite guys
- Donte Booker (DL/LB) -same positiion that we recruited tyquan lewis for
***Malik McDowell (hard to get a read on....when we get him on campus then we will all have a better idea so it is hard to put him in this class)
****Maybe Carter if Autry????
-Again I think Booker is in and one more stud____________(insert name there)
-Marshon Lattimore (you could put him as an ATH but he likes Defense the best and he is all Buckeye from what we am hearing)
***Quinn Blanding if he picks us (most likely UVA, he announces this month to help the school he chooses recruit more talent, Dont think its happening but if urban wants him he will go after him all the way even after a commitment we all know this haha.
P/K- with the talent out there that is really interested in tOSU i dont know if we burn a scholarship on one this year but we will have to see if there is a need after this season
-This is based upon us taking 22 in this class and 23 if Leaves. I think they said right now we have 14 'ships but i think by NSD we take 22 (only a guess: we loss 8 to NFL, transfer, pt, home sick, etc)
-If we have 21 we don't take 3 wide recievers
-If there is 20 I think we take 2 WR and only 3 DB
This is only my best guess from the information from the staff and other sites please dont rip it apart positive comments are well appreciated, and negative criticism and off topics would you please take it to another topic.
Thanks for taking some time to see what i think we will look like on NSD 2014

Who is Mark Andre?
Why don't you don't see Jamarco Jones in the o-line class? By all accounts we have a much better shot at him than Brown or Prince.
very good point..... I dont know how his name slipped my mind i was trying to think a little outside the box with orlando brown and his name has been coming up every now and then on bucknuts. Mark Andre had a monster junior season from the numbers he is the #7WR and 72 overall prospect. He is a big kid as a junior with great hand (81 receptions 1590 yards and 22 TD ) and i could see him playing TE in college because of his size. He is a 225 wr as a junior (should grow an has a frame to add size) and I had an earlier post to the Staff which answered my question about him. He is warm on OSU and we offered him in May of 2012.

I wish I had a few of the 11.5 month early predictions for the 2013 class. How many guys in this class did we not have on the radar? Clark, Wilson, Baugh, Mitchell, Johnson, Barrett, sprinkle, hill, Elliott? Can't wait to see who Urban goes and gets.
FWIW, Prince is a big Terp lean at the moment
Has he been to tOSU campus yet on an unofficial visit yet ??? There is definitely a long way to go in this process but I didnt realize that thanks Moephius. Hopefully more good comments come like this thanks for the input +1
NYCbuckeyefan: Yeah tell me about it..... What part of NYC are you in I live in Hoboken, Is there a buckeye bar you recommend in city that gets a good crowd for the game.

It's Andrews, not Andre. Kid is from Arizona, Kyle Allen's teammate.
I live on the upper east side. Manny's in second gets a good OSU crowd up here but I think the official OSU Club one is Tonic in Times Square. I tend to watch most games at home with the kids though.
Dante Booker is about a lock at LB for this class as there is....
Difference between this class, and last year class is that Meyer has already been recruiting some of these guys for over a year.
And we know some of the BIG names that Urban has key in on like Drake Harris, Deshaun Watson, Clifton Garrett, Raekwon McMillan, and etc.
Last year around this time I think we had no clue who to expect from the OSS prospects. With that said we are further along in the recruiting process this year IMO. So it's more foreseeable to predict this year class

Great OP. I agree we can not get over 23 in 2014. The problem is Urban will never take less than 4 D lineman(which is fine with me). So who gets left out? The bucks are in on so many guys you cant say no to. (Kwon, Drake, Autry, Booker, Marshon, Peppers, Hurd, Kitt, Jones, etc. etc. etc.)
My way to early prediction is that Watson is a Buckeye come NSD!!!
I piss excellence.
Nice...I will have to check them both out. I usually watch them at home as well and I have no kids so don't feel bad, as long as we keep winning 12-0.
