Not sure anyone said that... not good because he is going to be a force for Ohio State and we wanted him. And also yes Ohio State is bringing in a very good 5 man class.
We wanted him, but have been out of the running for a month and half - at least. Would have been a nice add, certainly! Stupid OSU.

Ohio State will, more often than not, bring in recruiting classes filled with players who "will be a force." I won't start hand-wringing over one just because we happened to be recruiting him earlier in the cycle. If it's not him, it would be someone else.

Conversation spurred..... he's going to be a Liddell 2.0....and no one is hand-wringing over it... is that still a thing?

What we need is another 22' commit! I trust in Underwood and staff wholeheartedly but after a fast start we have found slowed to a crawl. If we have no luck with Whitmore, Rogers, i honestly have no idea who our viable backup options are (besides unforseen transfer options) of coure. We need a big badly!

I love the NC forward, Ausar. The big (more like jumbo) guard Hall is pretty darn intriguing too.

Sucks to lose out on guys we want, but this staff has an uncanny ability to move on quickly and get in on other kids who are really good.

Agreed...we lost out on lot of wings/bigs last year and recovered fine...thx Kofi, Payne, Podzilla, Goode, and RJ for the recovery....but we need to get some bigs going forward.

Ausar keeps getting brought up on this thread, but unless I missed something we haven't even offered him, right? We're already extending offers to 2024 recruits, and I think we've had assistants see Ausar play live, so I have to imagine if the staff hasn't offered him yet they must not be very high on him.

I don’t see any offers listed for him yet

Any recent update on Rodgers, saw he has a few visits lined up in October.
