    Yeah, he's a good player, but have heard that he doesn't like to entertain questions about practice...

    Reminds me of the recruitment of Khaleke Hudson, another versatile Safety prospect from Western PA, at one time in line for PSU, and then lost to Michigan, where he is apparently playing well.

    I see a ton of WPIAL games and Raines isn't half the player Hudson is. In my opinion Hudson is the best player to come out of the WPIAL in years. He just doesn't have the prototypical height for the style he plays. That's one ship I think we will regret not giving out.

    I hope that isn't the case. Didn't Franklin learn anything from Khaleke Hudson about slow rolling an in state kid waiting on bigger fish? I think Raines is a take now if he wants in and it's just a matter of waiting out other guys.

    I've seen neither in person, so hoping you are right. I was pissed about the Hudson thing after watching his tape

    And neither kid committed to OSU.

    Well, to be brutally honest: one out of the two ain't bad and it's NOT Parson's.

    Hey Jayson, did you notice how the fans bugged out of the Horseshoe in a hurry, even with minutes of game time left?

    In Franklin I trust... as the old saying goes, it's not the players who you don't get who hurt you, it's the players you get that can't play. Hudson certainly looks like a good player, but if CJF thought they needed someone at different position or wasn't sure about Hudson, then that is his right to make that call.

    Yeah but some of the conversations on here after signing day were that Franklin then put the full court press on Hudson, but it was too late. So in Franklin you trust, but from the sounds of his actions, Franklin realized he screwed up Hudson's recruitment.

    Probably not the best comparison. Hudson was ready to verbal when he didn't have any offer (if I remember that correctly). But I don't see this as slow playing Raines. Raines has had an offer for a long time and is being thorough about his decision, which is certainly his right. PSU has filled up much earlier than expected and now has to be focused on need and be selective about how these last 2 spots are filled.

    So the problem with taking Raines is need based on how the class is composed. Would PSU love to have him all things being equal? Yes. But there is much bigger need for the remaining spots to address the DL....particularly at DE. As long as PSU is in on Oweh (and probably to a lesser degree Parsons), one of those scholarships is not going to a LB/Safety. Then you have to consider up side of need comparing Walker or Smith over Raines. If it's between Raines and Walker, I think we can afford to take Raines because the OT recruiting in this class is sufficient. But Raines over Smith is not a trade I'd be willing to make right now.....again, based on need.

    Listen, you make the best decisions you can with the information you have at the time. Harbaugh would have taken Hudson's verbal and then just gone no contact for a few months and hoped the kid got the message. I think Franklin prefers a more honest approach. He didn't think he'd have room in the class and couldn't take his verbal at that point.

    "That, in a nutshell, is part of the Micah Parsons recruitment conundrum. Parsons is an elite-level talent, but his excitability — and in some ways lack of maturity — make recruiting him a Catch-22. You just don’t know what you’re going to get. What happened Saturday night is just a teenager making a bad decision and according to sources in Columbus, players in the Ohio State locker room were “pissed” about them."

    I think there's a lot of overreaction about every move Parsons makes. He's pretty tight with Haskins so context of the tweet makes it pretty harmless. Maturity is a problem but not really unusual for 18 yr olds getting the attention Parsons gets every time he turns on his phone.

    He really needs to get into an environment where he can be mentored with this process behind him.

    Hindsight is 50/50. Unless someone lied, not being the first choice is by no means a foul.

    Buckeyes are sore losers. They've been spoiled with success for way too many years.

    Recruiting is going to get interesting.

    He's needy for attention and he makes stupid decisions. This is not new (CD incident for instance).

    Tyreke Smith, please.

    Well, if there are no credentials waiting for him, that will show that the guys saying PSU is not recruiting him are correct

    I wonder if that was informed, a reaction to Parsons's comment, or a bit of both.

    Given the timing of that CB (and it's Wiltfong making the call) a day after the OSU trip, it may be the most surprised I've been on a projection....

    I'll still believe Parsons in Lincoln when he signs, but if it's not to work out with PSU would much rather he be there than in Columbus. I'm sure the 3-4 D that Nebraska is switching to is a factor, but there's plenty of time this year for that experiment to blow up in Bob Diaco's face.

    True, and I still don't have the problems with Parsons that others do. I have a feeling he's just a highly impressionable kid and a lot of the attention he draws is from people that say he's starving for attention. Classic case of feeding the beast.

    He'll still come down to the wire. I'm most curious as to how he gets along with other PSU verbals when he's visiting or how much these guys still talk. We know SAB is adamant about getting Parsons on board. I have a feeling he wouldn't be all in on that if the rest of the crew was sour on Micah but who knows.

    It's been a bit since we had a full scale drama. Back in the day with Shady and Vidal and to a lesser extent Deion Walker, we had a regular soap opera. Not to mention the RB I can't remember now. LOI's not signed, debated as being valid, etc. This is a good one though.

    I can't wait to hear the recap from this weekend.

    Yeah the 3-4 defense is actually a plausible reason for Parsons to be interested in Nebraska. I don't think the look at me routine would go over in Lincoln any better than it would in State College though.

    I swear to god this is a true story. I'm at the Big 33 game with a buddy in JULY 2003. We go to the concession stand to get
    fries and a soda. Who is in the next line but Jerry Sandusky. I tell him Chad Henne is sitting near us with a Georgia hat on. I talked to
    him for a minute. Asked him about Henne since he's not a coach any longer. He says not to worry about it.
