In the end, does our class rank higher than the Weasels
my top three on my 'want/need' list is POCIC number one of course. Doriahn Johnson at 2 and then i would also like to pick up Jaylon Smith. Idc who we get after that. Maybe a DB
In my opinion, the Buckeyes should focus on Pocic, Quick, Rodgers, Trubisky, Bell and one of the DL, Hill, Hurst or Munger. They definitely need depth at OL and Pocic and Rodgers will certainly be great players to get. They need a fast WR and, I understand, that Quick fits that bill. Trubisky could be one of those guys, like Troy Smith, who is signed to fill a back-up role and ends up as a star QB. Finally, we probably do need one more DT, unless Carter plays as well as he did in the spring game. Smith, in my opinion, is headed to South Bend and, in any event, as a result of the guys the Buckeyes have committed for 2012 and 2013, in addition to Shazier, Grant, and Crowell, we seem almost overloaded at LB. I know Smith is elite, but Hawk, Carpenter and Laurenitis were not 5 stars coming out of HS and they were terrific. Save the other sholarships for 2014!

Can we infer then that a player rated #2 on this list certainly can't be the lock for Yesterday U that many proclaim him to be, right? What is Pocic waiting for?
I'd love for Jaylon to be #2, that would insinuate he is most likely going to be a Buckeye right?

DL probably the deepest area on the team, why so many on the list ?
just me or does mcneil look like a younger beanie wells?
Is may be just me but it seems as though our biggest needs in the remainder of this class are OLmen, WRers and Playmakers but it seems we can't seem to say no to any DLman. Bill do you think that Pocic makes his decision by the middle of June? And when might we expect to see some WRers come into the fold? I realize that one cannot put too much stock in rankings and ratings but it would seem that the WRer from Arizona is good enough that we could already give him a green light on his offer and let him join the class.
Given this list, would you take the top 7-8 to finish this class, or would you change things up. As it stands now, I don't think we have enough OL and DL
We are really stocking up on the Defensive side of the ball. I don't see us needing everybody on the list but it seems this class is full of guys you just can't say no to. I would love to get Vonn Bell Jaylon Smith (a must) and Khaliel Rogers.

Buckeye Fan Since 1970!!!
Why wouldn't we accept the commitment of Allen? I thought he was really fast and a great hurdler?
I don't believe there is a ” must” get, and that includes the two guys we all want to see as Buckeyes...Pocic and Smith. There are really really good players all over the country who now will be recruited seriously by Coach Meyer and his staff. We fans will be on the edge of our seats waiting for a player to announce, but if they don't choose the Buckeyes, the coaches will just have the attitude of moving on to the next one.
What is going on with Lewis Neal? I see he is listed as a "soft commit" , while another site saids he completely decommited from the Bucks? Any news?
