    I dont know the reason, but I trust Meyer and staff on why this kid hasnt been offered. It's a whole new ballgame now, our team isnt going to be 65% Ohio kids.

    Four of our first five verbals are from Ohio..........and we will get verbals from most of the top 10 in Ohio this year..............including Dymonte Thomas IMO.......

    It is March..........a long way to go..........taking early verbals of elite guys is great............taking early verbals of prospects who are not viewed as elite early is a risk.............you never know......

    Michigan is doing a good job this year in recruiting but Ohio State will be better come next February............mark it down.

    The 2013 class is deep.............

    Meyer's recruiting philosophy is differnt than JT..........Meyer will always offer Ohio and lock it down but we are also focused on recruiting nationally and more than the previous staff............

    Each staff evaluates a prospect and how they will fit into their system and program in general..........for whatever reason Meyer feels McCray is not comparable to some of the other linebacker prospects who hold offers........

    Michigan thinks he will fit their system............I wish him the best..........its not Michigan beating Ohio State for a top recruit..............there is no offer from Ohio State...........

    Michigan can keep getting guys Ohio State has passed on..............I am sure they will be able to compete that way..........:biggrin:

    This is what McCray's HS coach had to say about him (keep in mind, Cam Burrows plays on Trotwood).....

    It will be interesting to see what happens..............I don't think OSU would have offered unless there was some communication or indication from McCray or his family that a OSU offer would be seriously considered...........

    Doubt that M.M. changes his mind~~~

    he's solid to the 'Weenies' tho his father was a Captain at OSU.

    I would never bet against Urban Meyer in recruiting.............it is not over until a LOI is signed.....

    Buckeyes offer Michigan commit.................Could there be another Ohio State/Michigan recruiting battle brewing? The Buckeyes offered a four-star Michigan verbal on Friday afternoon.

    McCray Lands Buckeye Offer..................There is no off-season in the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry, and Urban Meyer spiced things up a bit Friday with an offer to Michigan commit Michael McCray. The four-star linebacker committed to the Wolverines in March.

    I wonder if the staff wishes they went harder after Mccray...

    We are seeing some offers go out to OLBs that are lower rated players and possibly projects...

    I know ratings aren't everything (or much at all really) but I wonder if the staff is in McCray's ear trying to persuade him to flip...

    I'm sure Burrows is working on him...

    his dad said he set on scUM, dad said originally he wanted to go to oklahoma, but once dad told him he wouldnt be able to make the trips all the time, it kind of swaded him away, then dad said next day he came in and said the wanted to go up north. He did talk to urban, but it sounds like he felt scolded by tressel and his staff, Dad likes urban but moms not so big on him,

    honestly this is a kid we needed/ should of landed he's going to be good
