I believe he was a two-time first team all-American to boot. I’d be lying if I said I had heard of him before today (I’m not much of a recruiting follower), but looks like OSU was really counting on him to make immediate contributions and solidify their defense. This kid seems to be a huge get, but what really has me geeked is the fact that we’re steamrolling in the right direction with regard to recruiting. Stealing players from elite programs, who would have likely started day one at those schools, is something we couldn’t have dreamed of ten years ago, yet it’s becoming more and more normal. The uptick in recruiting the past few years is very encouraging.
Also, give Shah a raise. Incredible job. If we could somehow lure Erickson back into the fold, just to recruit one state, and maybe convince Steve Smith to hop on board… ah, guess I’m just dreaming a bit.
