1. Donte Whitner

90%

 Up

At this point, the biggest shock of the recruiting year would be Whitner not coming to Ohio State.

 

2. Brady Quinn

20%

 Up

Surprise!!!  It could happen. The Buckeyes have never given up on him.

 

3. Michael Bush

70%

Things look so good that there is even a rumor of a silent verbal.

4. Mario Williams

25%

  _

He seems to be leaning toward staying close to home.

5. Andrew Bain

10%

  _

Just get him on campus.

6. Joel Holler

50%

  _

The players who visited with him say he comes down to Ohio State and one other school.

 

7. Wesley Jefferson

20%

  _

He has now set up a visit. He's a Tressel-type kid… remember I said it.

8.  Prescott Burgess

70%

  _

He showed he was returning to form in the state title game. Every week, I hear less from the "he's going to Michigan" crowd. My guy is not worried about this one.

9. Dareus Hiley

70%

  _

He left his USC visit saying the Buckeyes and SC were tied…that's not good enough.

10. Brandon Maupin

80%

 Up

That 80%  may be too low.

 

 

11.  Ashton Youboty

50%

  _

He said he didn't know what he is going to do about his other visits and was making a decision by Christmas. I think my 50% may be too low.

12. Tim Washington

40%

 Up

He did not verbal Oklahoma. I feel good about this one.

13. Ira Guilford

50%

 Up

He didn't change his visit but also hasn't changed his mind. Ohio State is still # 1.

14. Sian Cotton

75%

 Up

He has not set up his visit yet and that may be a good thing. His basketball schedule will conflict with visits, so he may only be able to take a couple.

 

15. Shawn Crable

50%

It was a good week for the Buckeyes with Crable. A very good week.
