What I don’t get is why we slow play Ohio guys then try to get them to flip when the out of state longshots don’t pan out.


They don’t “slow” play them. The kids have to earn the offer, and most of the time, the best way to evaluate them is at a summer one-day camp and none of his current Ohio group (Duplain, Jacobs, Cavon Butler, Tommy Eichenberg) camped with the Buckeyes. So then the staff has to wait for senior film.
