19 offers later and none from OSU. I think he's given up and is leaning towards TCU. Big loss for OSU.

He also just visited Nebraska and is expected to receive an offer from them.

My hopes of him wearing orange and black is fading away.....................

TCU is really his best offer so far.

edit: Well, Scout says he has a PSU offer.

It's weird that we aren't even talking to him though. Lots of good players get late offers, but usually there is a relationship before hand. He's definitely getting some good offers.

Why? If oSu went after every recruit that some random internet poster wanted, they would run out of schollys and the coaches have a much better idea of what fits their scheme.
Don't understand your personal crusade here.

I believe it's because Ranthony is a close family friend and he was heavily interested in OSU and a very capable D1 player but we went with other options. It'd be equivalent to you having a son/nephew/close family friend that was a capable D1 player with Big12 offers but wanted to play at OSU and didn't get an offer. You would be a little upset, I would assume.

Sorry for getting excited about my alma mater, at one time, being interested in a close friend's son. Geez.

Thank you LakeCowboy. Perfectly said.

He said he was very disappointed. You have to understand the program needs as well.

And I do understand the program needs as well. Was originally excited that I might have a close friend wearing O&B. Not that big of a deal really.

There is a thread about a kid named Darren Carrington that could use this type of logical input.

He chose TCU. At least you will be able to see most of his game with how close he is to you.
Good news for TCU. Glad to see he picked a Big 12 school, at least. I'll still get to watch him every year. Was wishing to see him in O&B, but happy for the kid. He'll do great things.
