    Arch', are you the only 6-star program in the league right now? We in the PAC-12 have a lot of hard work ahead of us before being able to make a dent with the bonus recruits. I look forward to seeing some of you big dogs duke it out, though.

    Rumor has it the Buckeyes landed a major recruit in week one, but they're keeping quiet about who signed. "Best to let the other teams burn their time. No reason to make their jobs easier." said Coach Griffin. "We'll make an announcement when the time is right."

    wow, you just got more top 150 recruits to commit than I have even interested in my program.

    Also have you guys noticed that the recruit lists on Dynasty Wire doesn't sort right when searching for guys who have you as the top school?

    Buckeyes Sign Ohio's Best in Week One

    Columbus, Ohio - The Buckeyes may have silenced the critics early this recruiting season. After a rocky off-season filled with talk of cheating and NCAA violations, the Buckeyes may have taken the first step back towards dominance in the Big Ten. On the very first day of recruiting, and in Coach Griffin's very first recruiting call, he received a commitment from Twinsburg native Tyler Hall - a small but lightning quick back who was nearly untouchable in his high school career.

    TH.PNG

    Hall was very likely to be courted by every major program in the country, but he chose to declare his intentions right away.

    • No need to keep folks guessing. I was always going to be a Buckeye
    Look for Hall to make in impact right away, most likely on special teams and in shotgun passing situations. Also, coach may have some tricks up his sleeve as well. Here's what coach Griffin had to say about the signing:

    • Well, let's just say we're going to find a way to get him on the field, and it's pretty likely the ball is going to find him. How we're going to manage that ... well, you're just gonna have to buy a ticket to find out.
    The Buckeyes just got a big infusion of speed. Let's see if the rest of the Big Ten can keep up.

    Kid's gonna be a Monster. I'll have power with Carlos Hyde and Rod Smith (who are young power backs) Jamaal Berry for balance, and this kid returning punts and kicks, and running the ball in ways I'm not going to reveal just yet. I gots plans an' stuff :)

    Nah. I think that should be reserved for teams that use it exclusively. My creativity will likely take another form.

    I despise big-time programs and their coaches. I hope Hall gets hit by a bus on the way to his first Buckeye practice.

    Love,

    A guy from Ohio edited your rosters, and gave a really bad team an A rating when they're at least two years away from challenging. Despise that :)
