bell's announcing live on espnu at 10:05 a.m. est on signing day.
Yep me too.
As much as i'd love to have bell in this class, missing out on him wont be a huge blow to us. I see Burrows moving to safety anyway. Our attention should be on another offensive lineman and athlete/WR....If we land a lineman and wilson/clark/timmons, i'd be a happy camper.

OSU needs an O lineman badly but IMO having (the possibility of) a lock down corner would go a long way towards solidifying a D that has lost a lot of starters. Getting Bell along with the other DB's would be huge.
Besides, it appears UM is down to the "C" list on OLinemen. None would likely step in and play right away.
Mike from Rivals now predicting Bell to Tenn
“The only thing they can get me for is running a funeral parlor without a license.”
Urban needs to stock up on walk-on OLs. If just one pans out, it's a win.
Some asked the 247 recruiting director, JC Shurburtt, about Bell a few hours ago on Twitter:
@mckzies: @jcshurburtt whats the latest on Von Bell and OSU rumors
@jcshurburtt: @mckzies OSU was/is closing the gap. Should get interesting. Urban Meyer and company can close.
Still some Hope on landing Bell.
"Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye 'til I'm dead"
I trust Farrell a bit more than Shurburtt personally, but you never know. I think it's Bell to TENN.

Probably so. Its interesting nonetheless.
I think we whiff on our three remaining targets. Clark is at UF for the sixth time this weekend and there is way too much smoke about Bell to Tenn. Wilson took a visit to Texas a week after claiming it was either Oregon or OSU.
Even so, we have a top 5 class.
:( Was hoping we'd get him. Not looking good, but with Urban you can never count him out.
tressel can't close\
Neither can Urban apparently. But I think that is the irony you are getting at.
Seriously though, Utban's brought in two top 5 classes in one year's time and went 12-0. I think he'll just pick up steam from here on out.
He'll get some OLs to commit early along with the elite LBs that have OSU as their leader. We are gonna be rockin' in a couple of years.
urban is a beast
Yeah hopefully if we make a good run this year, that will continue to build momentum for us. We can hopefully get some more good OL in here next year.
People can say what they will about Terrelle Pryor but the one thing I can say about him is that he had his own mind during the final stretch of Signing Day and slightly beyond.
He was almost unflappable in his decisionmaking despite certain family members having their preferences and even him taking some late visits to LSU and Oregon.
He knew he could succeed at scUM under Rich Rod or even at WVU and Oregon but he was thinking long term in terms of what'd best serve him in preparing for the NFL. He didn't crumble under the pressure as many and it was evident how he was still able to lead his basketball team to a state title--all before committing to "the university of Ohio State."
I agree. I think Burrows needs to be at Safety as well.
What'll be most important though is that with or without Bell, Withers and Coombs getting the incoming group of DBs to play top notch. To push their buttons to say, "You're not as good as Vonn Bell" or "Can you outdo Vonn Bell?"
Whatever motivational tactic they need to use they need to do it in order for this incoming group to excel.
have fun playing for Butch Jones. I'm sure he is a better coach then Meyer or Saban.
I kept thinking to myself, ya know as long as he doesn't go to bama i'll be okay with it. As it looks more and more like UT i think i get saltier about UT then bama. At least with bama i understand why he would go there. Losing a 5* to UT leaves an empty taste in my mouth.

Ya but if he goes to UT at least he's going somewhere he can't hurt us.
errr errr errr
Barton Simmons and Garcia over on TOS are both predicting Bell announces for tOSU tomorrow.
