Considering I spend so much time sharing thoughts and opinions on here about OSU recruiting, I just could not contain my excitement and figured I would share it with my fellow Pokes something a little different on the "recruiting" forum: Our kids tend to make us happy, but today mine made me happier than usual. My daughter (high school freshman) gave her verbal commitment to coach Charmicael and the Cowgirls soccer program! She is the youngest commitment they have ever received to what is turning into a GREAT program. When I asked her why so early...."dad, if I kept letting everone else recruit and offer me I would just be wasteing my time and theirs. This is MY Notre Dame or North Carolina." We all go back and forth over what FB or BB player is next to commit, and while I understand OSU Soccer is not high on everyone's list, its a huge deal for us and our daughter's future! ORANGE!!! Thanks for letting me beam with orange pride even if just for a minute!
