McCray verbals to scum...
Surprise? scUM filling up fast so they can sit around and watch the rest of us continue to reel in prospects after they are full!
I have no problem with him going up there. I trust Urban with tOSU recruiting. Urban has a plan on who he wants.
You have a strong program and I'm sure you guys will be getting lots of great recruits over the coming months.
That being said, I'm thrilled to have McCray up in Ann Arbor. He looks like a great kid and a great player.
Nice get good kid. He almost got an offer from the Buckeyes and picked the #2 or # 3 ( MSU) team in the league. Congratulaitons.................

Yep....why worry about a kid that didnt get an OSU offer.
Congrats to him on his D1 schollie. I know Meyer has a plan and I'm not thrashing it at all. All I'm going to say is that all of these Ohio kids that he is passing on are going to be hungry and out for us, unless of course they wanted nothing to do with tOSU in the first place.
Save the drama Cassandra. He's a tweener that neither Urban nor the previous staff liked that much. We are in on better prospects, so let scUM have the rest. Maybe if we weren't limited on schollies, we'd taken a couple of these guys, but I really don't think McCray will ever be a factor there.
Relax everyone. Think Smith or Kimbrough
Thanks for the link bleedscarlet
I'm sure through all your great relations with the coaching staff and numerous hours spent watching film. Give me a break. Just saying Ohio guys that are passed on by Ohio State are hungrier.
Screw the blue. Take that bs back to piss and puke board.
ScUM is doing what they do best, taking kids we don't want. They have assembled a fine 3* class of Ohio kids. They should change their name to Ohio University North.
Hey, if you wan't to not offer the #44 ranked player in the country, be our guest!
Did he have a better choice?
i will NEVER understand the thinking of most Buckeyes.What happens if OSU doesnt land these kids,they are being recruited by every team in America.Losing HIGHLY ranked kids in your own back yard,(that understand the rivalry is just strange).McCray is perfect for any scheme 6'2 233 (and he will put on 10-20 LBs ) he will play WLB on 1-2 downs and edge rusher on 3rd and long.
dont know why people think he is undersized
Clay Matthews 6'2 252
James Harrison 6'0 242
Lamar Woodley 6'2 261
Von Miller 6'3 239
All Linebackers that line up at LB and DE probably the 4 best pass rushers in the game,none have blazing speed for LB but have ELITE speed for DE
This post was edited by A19 2 years ago
his offer sheet is pretty good
Oklahoma,S,Carolina,Wisconsin,Michigan,West Virginia,Nebraska,Penn St,Tennessee,Mississippi among his 25+ DIV 1 offers
He's the #44th ranke LB in the country...you scUM fans and your fantasy rankings are getting annoying
Whenever a guy from Ohio commits early w/o an OSU offer I often wonder why they get it over with so fast.
On the other hand when they committ to OSU I wonder why they even waited a second.
Von Miller ran a sub 4.45 and close to a 4.42 once in his NFL combines you bozo.
Once again you prove what an idiot you are.
Comparing McCray to Mathews is a joke, every team in the country wanted Mathews and McCray has nowhere near his explosiveness, the best NFL OT's cannot block him with his combination of speed, explosiveness and leverage.
Go crawl back in your hole.
OSU is in on better athletes at LB like Jaylon Smith, and we have Love and Anzalone all but in the bag.
#1 MLB Kimbrough is all OSU, just got some academics to clean up.
Tell me how great McCray is? The best elites in the country, USC, TExas, Alabama, LSU, Florida, Georgia and Auburn as of late, none offered him. Every team in America wants McCray, where's the offers from the teams I just listed, the nations elite? Well, they are not coming, he is not good enough to play for them and they will get better, just like Urban Meyer will. The last two years in the same area Jordan Hicks and Trey Depriest had every elite power wanting them along with OSU, they went to Texas and Bama. McCray had nowhere near their offer list, not even close.
You are a buffoon, each post keeps proving it.
Broken record! Every kid can't get a early offer. He could have waited to camp at OSU and earn a offer if he wanted to be a Buckeye that bad. This has nothing to do with McRae. We can't overreact if another program offers a Ohio kid. We need to evaluate each kid and make our own decision as a staff.
Where's the last few national title winners? Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Florida, and USC? Ah, no interest.
Outside of Oklahoma, who choked again last year, none of those teams above are elite in the last decade, and that includes Michigan.
Go check Anzalones offer list, who will be a Buckeye. LSU, Bama, USC, Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma and those types in his 30 plus.
Love, whos in at LB for OSU, just has to make it official. USC, Oklahoma, Nebraksa and other elites.
You are right, McCray's offer list is pretty good, not elite, that is what Urban Meyer saw on film and did not offer. He is good, certainly not elite.
Go run out in the street and make sure you hit a car, do this board a favor.
Smith, Zone, Kimbrough, and Love...forget about it.
