Urban Meyer Says No To LSU Coaching Position

UrbanMeyerLsu

Urban Meyer will stay at Ohio State and says he is not interested in any position available at LSU. After LSU recently fired head coach Les Miles, reports began to come out stating that the Tigers would at least try to get in touch with Urban Meyer, even if the results would not be what they expect. Meyer gave confirmation on Tuesday that he is not interested in a position at LSU. He mentioned that he did not receive any calls from LSU and plans to remain at Ohio State as head coach.

Since LSU is targeting many big names right now, it is probably a smart move by Urban Meyer to make this announcement so early. This move doesn't come as much of a surprise, even if LSU is not successful in luring some of the best coaches in college football. Two other candidates that LSU may be scouting for are Florida State's Jimbo Fisher and Houston's Tom Herman (Ohio State's former offensive coordinator).

Buckeyes Snag The Win, Credit Pure Hunger

OhioStateOklahoma

Some might call it wishful thinking, but if you were to have suggested just a few days ago that the Buckeyes would make the long journey to Oklahoma and dismantle the third ranking team in preseason polls - most people would have deemed you a little bit crazy.

45-24, the Ohio State Buckeyes took the victory over the Sooners, validating all of the behind the scenes work that went into a win whose making had been well-hidden from the outside world.

Even after losing 16 starters from the previous year, the Buckeyes knew that they had something incredibly special in training camp.

Linebacker Chris Worley spoke on the fact that sometimes you can feel you have that special thing going in to pre-season and find that it is something completely different once camp starts. However, Worley stated that once camp did begin "there was no doubt" how much talent would be entering the field on game day.

Burrows May Miss The Entire 2016 Season

CamBurrows

Fans thought that junior safety Cam Burrows had been cut from the game over the weekend for issues with his performance.

The truth of the matter is that Cameron had been going through pain and suffering with an injury that he previously acquired. News reporters confirmed that the injury was the real reason Burrows was out.

Urban Meyer spoke to the media on Wednesday and explained that the injury was to Burrows' foot. Unfortunately, Meyer also explained that the injury would most likely keep Burrows out for the rest of the 2016 season.

Damon Arnette Picked As Starting Nickel Back For OSU

Damon Arnette

Ohio State chose Malik Hooker and Damon Webb to be their starting safeties' this season. Gareon Conley, Denzel Ward, and Marshon Lattimore will be the starting cornerbacks for the team.

They did not choose a player to fill the nickel back position right away. Prolonging the decision allowed them to choose a player who could defend the pass consistently. They needed a true performer who could give them the advantage throughout the season, and especially when they face Bowling Green's quick-striking defense this coming week.

Urban Meyer, the OSU head coach, announced his decision today. He picked freshman Damon Arnette as the starting nickel back in the first week. This announcement came by way of his weekly call-in show.

Tyjon Lindsey

Tyjon Lindsey and Trevon Grimes are two wide receivers who have recently signed on with the Ohio State Buckeyes. These are two of 18 new commitments to the recruiting class of 2017.

After Lindsey and Grimes knocked out each of the other players, they put on hats from OSU, showing the choice of school they'd made.

Lindsey is from Las Vegas, and he is scheduled to announce his plans to play for Ohio State on Monday. Grimes is from Fort Lauderdale, and was scheduled announce his decision on Wednesday. Right before his video announcement, he said on Twitter that his previous plans had changed.

Terrelle_Pryor_2015

Terrelle Pryor ended up having the time of his life at the annual scrimmage at Ohio stadium. Saturday's event ended up being a happy homecoming for Ohio State's former quarterback.

Pryor exhibited some superior athletic abilities when he returned to the stadium where he ruled in his college years from 2008-2010. Pryor impressively caught six passes, two of which were touchdown passes from Josh McCown and Robert Griffin III.

The fans certainly thought Pryor's game play was great. At one point, he led the audience in a robust O-H-I-O cheer after he completed a magnificent 75-yard streak of touchdowns.

The game play that he exhibited during this scrimmage reminded everyone of how he used to play before the five-year ban from campus.

Pryor commented on his experience after the game by stating that it was "electric."

Quarterback Emory Jones Stays Committed to Ohio State for 2018

EmoryJones

Emory Jones, an junior committed to Ohio State originally from Georgia, is having a great year at Heard County. Currently, this quarterback has led his team to the number one spot in the 2016 rankings. He is the number two signal-caller dual-threat in the upcoming junior 2018 class. This ranking attracted many colleges trying to pluck him from Ohio at their camp. Tennessee, Knoxville, and Clemson wanted his talent in addition to the Buckeyes. Georgia wanted to attract him back to the Peach State. Luckily, he is staying put for 2018. He made this decision recently.

Visiting these colleges in person helped him decide. Rumors state Ohio State was the odds-on favorite; the other colleges' job was to convince him their college was better than OSU. One became a threat after previous quarterbacks left their college for professional ball. Today's decision proved the colleges failed, and coach Urban Meyer couldn't be prouder. Jones is the second person to choose Ohio State for 2018; Brian Snead was the first. This gives Ohio State momentum into the New Year.

Chase Young Makes The Call at Friday Night Lights

ChaseYoung

Chase Young, the defensive end, committed during Friday Night Lights at the Ohio State University this past weekend.

The Buckeye coaching staff was so excited about Young's decision that they had an all-out celebration with the 225-pound, 6-foot-5 player right on the 50-yard line according to reports.

Young's father, Greg Young, did not think that he was going to make a decision for quite some time on the college to attend after high school. In fact, he told the news just that, an hour before Young made his decision. Young quickly announced that he was a Buckeye to all his beloved friends.

Greg gave a proud thumbs-up response during the celebration when some people asked if his son had made that commitment.

Ohio State Buckeyes Land Offensive Lineman Wyatt Davis

WyattDavis

Many recruiting followers were surprised when Ohio State stopped their efforts for the in-state recruit, Joel Honigford, who currently held 29 offers from various other schools.

It became clear this week, however, when the Buckeyes announced that they had received a commitment from OL Wyatt Davis from St. Bosco High in Bellflower, Ca. This commitment surprised many who had not anticipated this news.

Davis, who is a 5-star recruiting prospect, listed his top recruiting school considerations 2 months ago and Ohio State was not included or mentioned by him as a school he was considering.

Last weekend, however, the situation changed quickly after Davis took a visit to Ohio State and the Buckeyes were suddenly included in his new Top-8 list.

10 Ohio State Players Drafted in the First Three Rounds of the NFL Draft

EzekielElliotNFL

All ten players end up in places where they can make immediate impacts and getting some playing time. Joey Bosa was picked up by San Diego (Pick 3), first of the Buckeyes in the draft. He doesn’t necessarily fit the scheme the Charges play on defensive but was the best player on the board and is very versatile, can play at every position across the line. The highest drafted player out of OSU since Orlando Pace as the first pick.

Ezekiel Elliot (Pick 4) was selected by Dallas in the first round. A good pick for the Cowboys. He is already considered the top fantasy player coming out of the draft as Dallas has a great offensive line and some good receivers to take pressure off the running back. Could go for 1000 yards his rookie year.

Eli Apple went a little higher than expected, tenth overall to the Giants. Corners are a big thing for teams to pick early in the draft. In a couple of years he could very easily be the teams top defensive back. Apple’s mom quickly took to Twitter to tell all the young ladies to stop throwing themselves at her son. Good stuff.

Taylor Decker gets drafted by the Lions in a rebuilding year. A significant piece of their new offensive line. He was selected the 16th overall, that’s 4 Buckeyes already and the draft is just getting warmed up.

Ohio State's 2016 Running Game

BrionteDunn

In terms of the 2016 season, Urban Meyer stated that he sees similarities between his Ohio State rushing game and the one that he had in Gainesville. He mentioned talented Ohio State Footfall players such as Dontre Wilson, Mike Weber, Bri'onte Dunn and Curtis Samuel.

He says that Zeke Elliott and Carlos were present the last couple of years, but players like them were not on his team in Gainesville. He had to create a running strategy back then, so he is thinking along those lines when it comes to the 2016 season.

He claims that all of this is doable since Elliott is going to be a first round NFL Draft pick. Keep in mind that Hyde plays for the San Francisco 49ers as a running back. Meyers says that Ohio State's spring roster doesn't have NFL quality rushing backs at this point in time. But anything could happen. (Ad: H&R Block Tax Filing with http://2015Tax.org)

Ohio State Works Hard To Keep Haskell Garrett

Haskell Garrett

Recently, Ohio State received a commitment from Haskell Garrett to play football as a top defensive tackle prospect; however, it will take hard work to have him stick around.

Signing day of 2016 has now come and gone, and all of the remaining headlines turn to 2017 and 2018 recruitment. The Ohio State class of 2017, in addition to the powerful recruiting class of this year, is considered to be one of the highest recruitment impacts from around the country. To help aid in this endeavor, the Ohio State Buckeyes were able to accomplish a key commitment on Tuesday.

Haskell Garrett, one of the most elite and powerful defensive tackle prospects in the United States, stated his commitment to Ohio State this past Tuesday morning. Coming from renowned Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, Garrett has roots from Hawaii and displays an immense stature at 6ft 2in tall, weighing in at about 280 pounds. For such an immense defensive tackle, Garrett displays an incredible amount of speed on the field that takes him a notch above the remaining prospects in the US.

JK Dobbins Commits To The Ohio State Buckeyes

JK Dobbins

JK Dobbins, the all-purpose back from La Grange, TX has committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes. Although this announcement was a surprise to many, Dobbins confirmed the commitment on his Twitter page.

Most people thought that this 5'10 200 pound high school player was going to commit to the Texas Longhorns or either the Oklahoma Sooners. So, when it comes to committing to the Ohio Buckeyes, no one saw this coming. However, Dobbins had already said that he was making an early decision. Also, the head coach Urban Meyer did not offer JK Dobbins until a couple of weeks ago. This is even stranger to say he hasn't made recent trips to Columbus. His last known trip to Columbus was back in May.
