    Blake McClain

    Anyone know if he is being recruited? He gave a soft verbal to Kentucky in June before Philips was fired and is now looking at other options. He and Shawn Curtis seems to be pretty close also.

    Blake McClain - Yahoo! Sports

    Rivals says he had an official visit, so he was obviously interested at one point.

    Re: Blake McClain

    he took a couple visits after ours. Not sure, might have stopped recruiting him but I obviously have no idea for sure.

    He was here with Meeks and Curtis and from and interview that I saw with Meeks, he mentioned he was trying to get McClain to come here, also. I know the staff doesn't go around giving official visits to people they don't want.

    So, I did the obvious and asked him on tweeter if ISU is still in the picture. He replied "yessir". This would be another great get!

    Nice. I was wondering if the Barnes committment had us cooling on McClain, despite the obvious talent.

    Re: Blake McClain

    D A Williams, from St. Augustine, is a solid corner (both in pass coverage and run support). Nigel Tribune appears (based on videos) very good on pass coverage, but is a little light to come up for run support. Blake McClain looks solid in both pass coverage and run support. All three of these guys would be good additions IMO.

    PS. Both Jalen Barnes and Kamari Syrie can "bring the wood" from the safety positions. (Recommend watching their senior highlight videos.)

    Yeah, like to the compliance officer. Today's Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Ohio State spends more than $1 million on its athletic compliance staff. The article also has a nice picture of Gene Smith, former ISU AD, in a lovely pink cap.

    Re: Blake McClain

    He does have a good, solid football name so there is that - we would not have to get him a nickname - and he comes with the stars that we have come to expect.









    I realized that we are just tough young men. Resilient, really, Morris adds. A lot of people probably would have tucked their tail and tried to make moves but this group stuck together. Everybody is on the same page and that really told me a lot about the type of season we can have.

    Re: Blake McClain

    I'm sure we cooled on him is because we have 26 commits for this class. I think CPR is basically done.

    Don't think too hard, you might hurt yourself :)
    Besides, how can you turn down those dreamy eyes?
