        Can't wait until dead period is over so BVG can get after these DT's we are suddenly getting involved with.

            I really like this kids film.

            Staff is trying a lot harder right now to find a DT

              How is his competition?

              Potentially another player with a famous dad.

                Surprised it took ND this long to offer. Really liked the kid's junior film prior to the season. He's not a NG, but a very good DT. The type of kid MSU lands and turns intoa stud.

                      Cages coach told II that Elston had been there all along but He didn't fit Diacos scheme. With BVG as DC they believe he fits a lot better. Wow way behind on this one, haha

                            That's the common reaction but I like Sampson don't think that these comments necessarily mean that. What coaches tell recruits and then recruits tell the media can mean drastically different things. I stand by the idea that philosophically BK believes that a 3-4 base defense is the best way to defend these modern day offenses.

                                      Josh Helmholdt from Rivals, who covers midwest recruiting, says he saw Cage in the fall and pegs him at 6-1, 290 with getting to 300 doable.

                                          This is actually some really good film. I quick trip thru the drive-thru and he'll be over300lbs. Like the low center of gravity. Do want.

                                            Start right away?? What are the chances we have any freshman DTs... Let alone ones hat start.
                                            This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

                                                Just so we're all clear, this is an actual person who actually plays football, right?

                                                    We're about to see the run on DT's that we've seen on CAT's this cycle.

                                                      Anywho, this Cage kis is the #1 DT in Ohio and it's not even close. He's my top want out of the group of new DTs.

                                                        Where Buster treads . . .

                                                        This kid isn't 6'1". I don't know whether he is six-three or not.

                                                        This kid is quicker and faster than most defensive tackles. He is also more athletic, and has a better sense of body. This is exactly what MSU goes for when they build their monsters.

                                                        That being said he is powerful. And has a nose for the ball.

                                                        To his athleticism, he is actually a decent basketball player from what I have found out.

                                                        AS FAR AS BVG's defense, is the difference two gapping as opposed to one gap coverage? Or is it really configuration, number of down linemen? RKG2 or someone has been at one of his clinics.

                                                          So it sounds like Diaco's position criteria really put the kibosh on a lot of these kids' recruitments. Since his departure, there have been numerous examples of guys the staff is currently recruiting (or could have recruited) but Diaco didn't give the OK. Interesting.

They hold their own against the likes of Moeller, ST X, and Colerain on a regular basis and won state a few years ago. Competition is good.

                                                                      Adequate size on paper, but comes across as a thickly-built kid with good playing strength and could still pack on some additional size with time in a college weight program.
                                                                      Versus the Run
                                                                      Can be a tough interior run defender. Needs to be more consistent but he can be explosive. Gets tall at times, but overall does a real good job of firing off the ball with low pad level and at times, when he can time it up well, he can blow through a blocker's shoulder and disrupt with some penetration. More consistently he is a tough, phone booth type player who can fire out and gains physical leverage, uncoil, stand a blocker up and hold his ground. With his low pads and explosive hip roll he can also handle himself against the double team. Flashes the ability to shoot his hands and when he does has the upper body and hand strength to quickly extend and violently shed, but needs to improve hand usage as he is pretty consistent with pad level, but loses his hands much more frequently. Really only gets pushed off the ball when he gets a little lazy with technique and pops up and is not active with his hands. A physical wrap-up tackler with the ability to deliver a jarring pop.
                                                                      Pass Rush Skills
                                                                      Has bull rush ability, but needs to develop further as a pass rusher and more productive defending the run at this stage. Needs to develop his hand usage more, but with a bull rush and development of a power rip and push-pull and more size, he can be a solid interior rusher.
                                                                      Toughness/Motor
                                                                      Can be a tough customer. When he comes across the line he can stay square with good short-area lateral movement to keep himself in position to play the ball and be active between the tackles. Gives effort with good pursuit angles, but displays just adequate range and change-of-direction for his size.
                                                                      Bottom Line
                                                                      Cage, with some additional size and further technical development, can be a good, tough and physical presence in the trenches for a defense.

                                                                      according to espn...offers also from arky, florida,neb,vandy,tenn

                                                                                          Anywhere in Ohio, with a top program, is fine because with today's scheduling you play schools from all over. It isn't like Texas, distance wise. My old high school plays in a league which three of its opponents are more than 45 miles distant and has played schools from Indy, Detroit, Cleve, Akron, Columbus, Cinci and so on.

                                                                                          This kid is legit!

                                                                                          A few years ago Suburban Columbus was the best overall area (multiple leagues.) Cleveland has had a resurgence. (Witness the fall of St Iggy, the other teams have gotten better, including public schools like Mentor, and Valley Forge.

                                                                                          Northwest Ohio has always been an anomaly; twenty percent of Toledo and suburban football has always been really tough. The rest has been very pedestrian. And Northwest Ohio has had some incredible programs in some of the outlying communities. Patrick Henry, Fostoria, Clyde, Tiffin, all come to mind. (Fostoria in their heyday with Woodson and crew as Division II or III in Ohio, could have competed anywhere in the country!)

                                                                                          From my era where NWO football became too diffuse, the schools apparently learned their lesson. (I don't seriously believe that this was any more than school districts planning with their resources.) But schools have become more concentrated. Some schools like Central Catholic have had a resurgence. The fact is when you look at the quarter finalists in the top three divisions in the state, they have more than the (population percentage share from NWO). But it is much sparser and smaller than all other parts of the state. With Cleveland-Akron to the east, Columbus metro to the central and south, and Cinci-Dayton to the southwest. The only large city in NWO is Toledo, #5 in Ohio, behind Dayton, just ahead of Akron.

                                                                                          I think over-all the other major metro areas as a whole are always better than NWO. But the toughest teams from NWO fare well against the top teams from almost anywhere else in the state.

                                                                                          Thus says the Black Swamp Fianna. Sort of the NWO Mafia. (There is a reason NWO was settled last.)

                                                                                            I would have to dig into it a little bit, but I don't remember any of Winton Woods' top players seriously considering OSU. It's strange really.

                                                                                                  OSU typically doesn't do that great in the Cinci territory. They played their Spring game there last season at Paul Brown in an effort to help strengthen recruiting there (And because the Shoe was having some work done). They've got about 5 guys from Cinci or the surrounding area on their roster. Most of their guys seem to come from central Ohio, northern Ohio, or out of state.

                                                                                                  There were a number of times we wrapped up the few targets they went after in this area. Things have been kind of quiet in Cinci for us the last two years though. I do know that Tubberville burned some bridges with high schools in the area when he came on board at Cinci, maybe that leads to us picking up more Cinci kids.
