OSU Bullets

Landing Edmond Santa Fe linebacker Collin Oliver would be massive – read below if you want to see where he ranks in the recruiting pantheon of defensive players.

If the above list is any indication, the short-term impact of adding more defensive players like this could be substantial. Obviously, OSU has to actually land Oliver, but if it does, it will have landed one of its five best defensive players in the last decade. [PFB]

The latest fruit of the Santa Fe tree that grew Calvin Bundage and Trace Ford would be a very nice prize for the Pokes. Go ahead and mark that Ragusa film study post (that will be done if Oliver commits) into my inbox as a must-read.

We know Cade’s coming – who’s going to be around him?

Throw in perimeter scoring weapons in Rondel Walker and Donovan Williams, a high-flying athlete that is Matthew Alexander-Moncrieffe, and potentially Montreal Pena, and OSU should be a different animal next season.

The presence of the Boone brothers and Yor Anei down low, along with shot-making grad-transfer Ferron Flavors, should give Pokes fans every reason to be excited. [Rivals]

This five-star running back (that OSU recruited) is landing at TCU – pretty crazy. After five years of Justice Hill and Chuba Hubbard (assuming we have a season), I’m a little worried about who the next ace will be.

In potentially related-news, Boone caught up with OSU’s latest running back commit Jaden Nixon who seems like a really sharp guy.
