    On campus today.

    Umm, I hadn't seen his Jr film. Shame on me. This is an uber athletic dude with serious twitch for 6-5/270. Even if he's 6-4 in cleats, this is pretty impressive stuff. This guy is Jake Taylor quick off the snap.

    He's gotten offers from a ton of P5 programs this year. He's heading to OSU next. No idea if ND will be interested (on either side of the ball cuz the DL work is impressive too) but I will be watching him wherever he goes.

      OK this cycle has gotten... interesting?

      What's the date on the OV?

        He also cancelled his OV with Vandy this weekend and will visit Michigan instead.

              Gotcha. So he's gonna go to MI this weekend, ND during the week and Iowa next weekend.

              Maybe an offer gets ND next weekend?

              I wish he didn't get his Twitter account suspended

              Also of note, after his ND visit, Wiltfong and the Mothership bumped him up 2 pts to an 89. That makes him the #36 OT now, up from #49.

              This has Zen Michalski 2.0 written all over it.

                You say he's Jake Taylor quick off the snap, so is he a flex RT/G kinda guy? Or could he pull off the Z Mart LT special?

                  He looks like a tackle to me but I thought Alex Bars was going to replace McG when he left so what do I know?

                  BTW, I don't think Jake Taylor ever plays a snap of OG/C at OU or Bama.

                    Wanna know more about Ashton Craig? Here's his QB's 9:00 highlight. This is how I discovered Kevin Pyne was not who we were told he was.

                    Craig is #54.

                    BTW, If Garret Yoon was 6-2, he'd might need an offer. Looks like a great PWO option. His last tweet was from the Navy camp. That's exactly what he looks like in his film.

                      This might be the biggest mystery in ND recruiting. I'm not even sure where he is. 247 says he's on an official at ND, Rivals has him on an OV to MI and he got his Twitter account suspended like a lot of prospects prolly cuz of copyright infringements due to music.

                      One thing I know is... Quinn owns guys who know how to work a baitcaster.

                          And never trust the magnet. That leads to backlash city too.

                                You have to think this is because of them likely running 2nd for Wagner, Taylor, and Brunner…right?

                                    So he got offered as an OC per 247 or Rivals... didn't ask which one.

                                      Had we made it clear to any other target they were 100% a Center? Hinzman?

                                        Originally it was Tanona. Then I heard Hinzman. Of course, last class it was Coogan...

                                        Then there's talk about Patterson back to OC.

                                          If we are gonna concede somewhere I’d say Hinzman always seemed least likely of the WI guys

                                                    Driskell seems to think this is a "interesting" offer. Did somthing happen behind the curtains to one of our other targets?

                                                      Being a Colts fan, I've found myself watching Q on almost every play. His head is on a swivel looking to where he can help out. He still runs down the field to help the RB get up.

                                                        probably just the realization that we're not getting any of the recent visitors and we have 2 more spots to fill and only one higher ranked guy (Schrauth) we are leading on.

                                                          is there still high confidence we lead here?

                                                            Methinks the OL class is the biggest question mark

                                                              I'm very curious to see if they go to a Donovan Hinish move with the OLine where they take Craig and/or Baer. I hope they don't and make those guys wait on their spots after the big fish have made decisions but we'll see!

                                                                                The only whiff would not be getting Schrauth plus flipping the script on just one of them.

                                                                                The other factor here is it’s almost a lock that someone will earn a offer from camp each year, Craig happens to be one.

I don’t expect him to have a official announcement but if he did it would be a case at the moment where both sides feel they could be the victor

Go ahead, please provide the data that shows how much better Hiestand was than Quinn, keeping all things equal. I'm going to argue this assertion that Hiestand was a great recruiter is false. He had some big wins but he had a number of big misses and players who didn't develop.

                                                                                                If you're prepared to go down this path, I'm game.

Go ahead, please provide the data that shows how much better Hiestand was than Quinn, keeping all things equal. I'm going to argue this assertion that Hiestand was a great recruiter is false. He had some big wins but he had a number of big misses and players who didn't develop.
