    :5stars:

    TOP FIVE

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    We could not catch up with him but this is what we are hearing on the trail.

    - If PSU can compete for a division title they are the team to beat.

    - He really likes the staff at tOSU.

    - He went to Friday Night Lights in Gainesville and gave Florida a B

    - Said that Alabama gives him a great chance of being a top draft pick

    Did's take

    I see Penn State taking the home town kid in a close battle.

    ON THE TRAIL . . .

    [​IMG]

    THE TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE '12 CLASS

    ANDREW HILL

    MLB

    :5stars:

    6'0 230

    WOODLANDS, TX

    considering

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    DID'S TAKE

    Hill is an impressive athlete. He plays the run and pass equally well. He turned in a 4.62 at the AUSTIN SPARQ combine. So he shows enough speed to play on the big stage. He has an A- grade as tackler so he can contribute game one of his freshman year. There is no way the LONGHORNS let this guy escape the great state of TEXAS.

    RUNNING FOR ROSES????

    THE NATION'S TOP RUNNER

    BRANNON JOHNSON

    [​IMG]

    5'6 194

    MILLINGTON, TN

    HB

    :5stars:

    considering

    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Johnson currently has 2 offers coming from Alabama and Penn st. He has put up monster numbers in the state of Tennessee. He has accumulated over 800 yards and 12 TD's in his first three games this season.

    We were able to catch up with Brannon for a few minutes.

    What is your identity as a running back?

    "Well people say I'm a scat back and a third down back on the next level, but I want to prove that I can carry it 25 times a game.

    Who do you model your game after?

    "I liked Travis Henry when I was growing up as a Titan fan. They say he was 5-9 but he wasn't that tall. He was a great runner when he wasn't in trouble or having kids. And of course MJD"

    How is the recruiting situation playing out?

    "Not bad, I have a top three of Auburn, PSU, and Bama. I want to make a decision before the end of the season."

    Why those three schools?

    "They all have traditions of having great backs. They have all had a Heisman winning running back Bo Jackson, Ki-jana Carter, and Mark Ingram. That's my goal so I know they know how to get me there"

    Well I had it all wrong, this young man chose the Buckeyes, we finally caught up with him

    How was the recruiting process?

    I'm glad its over. I'm a Buckeye and it's over. We are going to win multiple championships not one or two or three . . .

    The last #1 recruit out of your state destroyed the program, how are your different than that guy?

    That dudes an idiot. If anybody gives me anything, nobody and I mean nobody will know about it. Not even my mother.

    Where do you project at OSU are you an offensive or defensive player next season?

    I want to play WR. Next question . . .

    Why the Scarlet and Grey?

    Why not? Next question . . .
