You are exactly right razor. Well stated +1
I also heard the name DePriest being thrown out. Just my opinion but why would we want him since we have an abundance of very good LB's that will have much more experience by the time he is he would be available to play anyway? This to me seems like marrying the girl that just left you a year ago for another guy and now wants you back. Noooooooo!

Sounds like DePriest has been ruled out going by the latest in that original thread. More names being thrown out, but still nothing I'd call reliable. It'll be interesting if anything comes of this...I think everyone will be surprised.
When someone I don't know calls me "Buddy," or "Pal" I immediately dislike that person. The reason is, I get the feeling he dislikes me.
Agreed. Because they're a stranger using a term normally reserved for someone familiar with you but they don't anything about you, it's reasonable to assume they are using it derogatorially.
What if they use them both together like "buddy ol pal"?
There are at least 3 threads on the same rumor but nobody even has a name. There has to be something more constructive for people to talk about.
When they say he's a "big name," does that mean he's a well known player or might it be someone who literally has a BIG name, like Cal RB Covaughn DeBoskie-Johnson, who would need two lines on the back of his jersey? Or Wonderful Terrific Monds II, a LB at Buffalo? Or maybe Yourhighness Morgan, a LB at FAU? Or how about Philander Moore, a WR at Ole Miss, who name implies he was born to be a serial adulterer and his wife would be smart to keep an eye on him? Maybe not "big" names but definitely memorable.
But here's my favorite: Wave Ryder, a safety at Navy. With a name like that, he was born to be in the Navy. Of course, as one might expect, he's from Hawaii.
It's no secret OSU struggled at the LB position. A good time to sit out with bowl ban. So who knows, I hope it's true.
I know this much, if Alex @ Eleven Warriors is talking about it than there must be some credibility to this rumor. I've followed Eleven Warriors for a while now and they don't report stuff without checking into it first.
Formerly "Buckeye47Fan". Couldn't carry over my handle, why 247 ?
Urban Meyer has not solved his wr problem and this comes up after diggs and neal aren't coming.......I look at past recruits assoc. with any coach presently on staff to solve....
Who wants to play with und, unc, fla, not sure where else....but agree this would take major speed .....otherwise wait for 2013...Meyer's hookin us up
Careful: Unless I'm mistaken, wasn't Alex the guy who reported Urban showed up late for his in-home meeting with Armani Reeves and created a bad publicity firestorm that had people scrambling, so much so that Brent Williams, Camren's father, felt compelled to be the one to issue a denial since the staff was prohibited by NCAA rules from commenting on a kid they were recruiting?
Grain of salt. Grain of salt.
Who is a big-name player whose school may be in NCAA trouble worse than us? It would surprise me if a kid would transfer to sit out a year and I don't know if I want anyone who played at Alabama, LSU, Auburn, USC, etc...even if Brax did grow up in Springfield before moving to Dayton to play for Wayne.
What about Hicks from Lakota West? Not sure Texas has went how he planned, though I heard his family moved to TX. DePriest's family is still in Springfield.
DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING FROM "EXPERTO" !!!!!!!!
I'm not sure about the Armani Reeves situation, you could be right. Grain of salt is correct, no one is right all the time.
Did Alex report it to be fact or was it one of those...... " I'm hearing Urban Meyer was late " kind of things ?
I can't see it being Hicks. He was 6th on the team in tackles.
Alex from 11 Warriors has been right more often than the clowns from this site.
You're probably right. I haven't heard anything from here in the Lakota district that would make me believe he'd be leaving.
If there is a hardship situation at home, then the NCAA could waive the transfer year. Maybe something like that is happening...
Braxton and DePriest were pretty good friends in HS.
"Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their players heads and motivate them."
How about Chief, now that really grinds my gear !!!! I am not an Indian nor am I the Chief of Police!!!!!!!! You call me Chief you get a F*ck You!!!!!!!!
I think Alex is the man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has great info and it is all FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think Depriest will start for Alabama next year! !!!!
Lol my bad I ment DePriest will be starting with Texas! !! I wanted DePriest to go to OSU but now we are stacking up at Lb he's a good backer but we have a great crew!!!
